Ke Jie 's 7th international title (21 years 168 days old), beating Lee Changho's record (22 years 288 days).

Ke Jie's result is all the more impressive because he is playing in a much more competitive era in which there are a dozen or so very top players close to him in skill, whereas Lee Changho was head-and-shoulders above his contemporaries (though that's differently impressive). I thought he might have faded with the downturn in his results a year or so ago, but he's showing he can pull out the stops and win when it matters most. Let's see if he can approach Lee Changho's longevity...

Looks like all those games he played on Fox paid off!

Yeah, 7 titles, 1 runner-up, and 3 semifinals out of the last 18 international tournaments he participated. That's some high performance.
