World number one Michael van Gerwen has withdrawn from this weekend’s HappyBet International Darts Open due to medical reasons.

The draw for the tournament was made earlier this week, therefore Van Gerwen’s scheduled second-round opponent, either Ryan Meikle or Michael Rasztovits, will receive a bye through to the last 16.

MvG joins May’s HappyBet European Matchplay winner, James Wade, in withdrawing from the tournament in Riesa, therefore Peter Wright will now be the number 1 seed in Van Gerwen’s absence.

Kim Huybrechts and Dave Chisnall also make up the top four seeds, alongside last year’s winner Michael Smith. As a consequence of Van Gerwen’s withdrawal, the game involving Jelle Klaasen and either Krzstof Ratajaski or Chris Dobey has been moved to the evening session on Saturday.

The full draw and tournament bracket for the International Darts Open can be found below.
