impressed there with wins over Terry Jenkins and Steve Beaton. Hopp won the Central European Qualifier
of the PDC Europe and by this got a place in the preliminary round of the PDC World Championship 2013.
He won his match but lost first round to Denis Ovens.
In January 2013 he took part in the PDC Qualifying School but failed to secure himself a Tour Card. He tryed again 2014 and failed for a second time but he could take part as an associate member in the qualifiers for the European Tour events and play some Challenge Tour and Youth Tour events as well. By the Pro Tour Order of Merit he qualified for the PDc World Championship 2015 and reached thanks to a win over Mervyn King the second round where he was elimnated by Vincent van der Voort. By this Hopp moved up the ranking and finally got his Tour Card. He qualified for the UK Open but lost his first match to Kim Huybrechts. More Success he had together with Jyhan Artut in the PDC World Cup - Team Germany reached the quarterfinals. In the same year Hopp for the first time was invited to the World Series of Darts final. He was defeated second round by Peter Wright. Near the end of the year Hopp crowned himself World Youth Champion of the PDC and qualified for the PDC World Championship 2017 only to lose first round once again.

Thans to his good results he qualified for the PDC World Championship 2017 and again reached the second round. Together with Martin Schindler Hopp was again Team Germany in the PDC World Cup and reached the quarterfinals for a second time where they lost to the Netherlands. The rest of the year was quite poor for Hopp who didn't manage to qualify for the PDC World Championship 2018 nor for the UK Open 2018. But then he gained momentum and stood in the quarterfinals of a European Tour event and of a Players Championship before he even won the German Darts Open, another European Tour event - to be sure a historic win for Hopp and German darts.

2019 was not as good a year for the young German.
