Davis reached the semi-finals of the 2014 Australian Open, before being denied his first full ranking event final by Neil Robertson. He was also a quarter-finalist at the UK Championship, Indian Open and Players Championship.

He finished the season by winning three matches to qualify for the final stages of the 2015 World Championship. He led Ding Junhui 4-0, before eventually losing 10-7.

In 2013, Davis enjoyed one of the best wins of his career as he knocked John Higgins out of the World Championship, scoring a 10-6 win in the first round.

He won the B&H Championship in 2003 at the Towers Snooker Club in Mansfield, beating Mehmet Husnu 9-6 in the final. That win earned him a wild card to the Masters.
