Two-time world champion Adrian Lewis kicked off his campaign with an emphatic straight sets triumph; Joe Cullen saw off Corey Cadby in the match of the tournament so far, whilst Mervyn King fought back from 2-0 down to edge out Steve West on an epic night of darts on day five at the Alexandra Palace on Monday evening.
Lewis began his assault for a third World Championship crown with an emphatic straight sets victory over veteran Swede Magnus Caris. The two-time world champion averaged 93.25, landed five maximums and converted 31% of his doubles, to maintain his record of having never lost a first-round tie at the World Championship.
Lewis won the opening set relatively comfortably. Caris claimed the opening leg on 56 after Lewis missed two darts at tops to break, but ‘Jackpot’ responded with a majestic 10-darter. The two-time world champion was experiencing difficulties on the double but completely outscored the Swede, pinning D5 in successive legs to seal the set.
Lewis continued his dominance to take out 65 and draw first blood in set two, but Caris somehow drew level after the Stoke-on-Trent star squandered a further five darts at double. ‘Jackpot’ regained the lead with a 13-darter, but Caris followed his first maximum with a 14-darter, only to miss one set dart at tops as the fourth seed doubled his lead. Continue reading “2017 PDC World Championship: Day Five Report!”
Michael van Gerwen retained his Players Championship Finals crown with a comprehensive 11-3 victory over Dave Chisnall at the Butlins Minehead Resort on Sunday evening, although the world number one was forced to come from 6-0 down in a dramatic semi-final clash against the unfancied Darren Webster.
Nevertheless, despite surviving a scare in the last four, ‘Mighty Mike’ was in imperious form in Sunday’s curtain-raiser, averaging 108.34, landing six maximums and converting 53% of his double attempts to triumph in convincing fashion. Chisnall averaged 99.24 himself, but he was unable to produce the goods in the key moments.
Despite the best efforts of ‘The Yellow Peril’, MvG’s astonishing dominance in PDC majors continues. Van Gerwen hasn’t suffered defeat in a ranking major since losing to Raymond van Barneveld at last year’s World Championships and Michael’s victory over Chisnall marked his ninth TV crown of 2016; his 25th in total.
Van Gerwen started the final strongly; breaking Chisnall’s throw with a confident 13-darter. Chisnall landed his first maximum in the second leg, but MvG doubled his lead by pinning D16 for a 17-dart hold. However, the St Helen’s star opened his account in leg three with a clinical 121 finish on the bullseye. Continue reading “Players Championship Finals: Day Three Report!”
World number one Michael van Gerwen remains on course to win his second World Series title of the year as he edged past James Wade, whilst Raymond van Barneveld, Dave Chisnall and Peter Wright also made it through to the last four at the PCEC on Friday night.
However, Van Gerwen survived a major scare as he narrowly defeated James Wade 10-8. The Dutchman fired in eight maximums and averaged 99 to progress against ‘The Machine’ who battled tenaciously.
MvG began the contest strongly, hitting maximums in each of the opening two legs as he established an early 2-0 cushion. However, Wade fired back impressively, converting finishes of 130 and 97 en route to reeling off four consecutive legs- to lead 4-2.
Despite this, Van Gerwen responded in kind by winning four straight legs of his own, to seize command once again. Wade refused to relent however, restoring parity at 6-6, despite missing six darts at double in the twelfth leg.
Phil Taylor will face a rematch with Australian hotshot Corey Cadby as he begins his assault for a third successive Perth Darts Masters title at the PCEC on Thursday evening. Elsewhere, Michael van Gerwen will lock horns with home-favourite Kyle Anderson, in a repeat of their second-round clash in Sydney.
Taylor has a magnificent World Series record in Australia, and won his fourth straight title in Sydney with victory over Van Gerwen in a thrilling final last weekend. The 56-year-old has won both stagings of the Perth Darts Masters, but Cadby will be hoping for revenge.
Taylor began his Sydney Darts Masters campaign with a 6-3 victory over the 21-year-old Tasmanian, but Cadby, who has won seven DPA titles in 2016, will have gained a great deal of experience from his TV debut last week.
Michael van Gerwen will be aiming to clinch his maiden World Series crown down under. The Dutchman was edged out 11-9 by Taylor last week, but he has an instant opportunity to bounce back, which begins with an enthralling clash against Kyle Anderson, who was beaten 10-6 by MvG last week. Continue reading “Perth Darts Masters 2016 Draw!”
Kyle Anderson and Rhys Mathewson delighted the Sydney crowd with victories over Raymond van Barneveld and James Wade respectively, whilst Phil Taylor began the defence of his title with a hard-fought win against Corey Cadby at The Star on Thursday evening.
Kyle Anderson was in sensational form as he reeled off six consecutive legs to defeat five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld 6-1. Van Barneveld hit a maximum and converted a 71 checkout to open his account, but ‘The Original’ responded superbly, averaging just shy of 100 to set up a quarter-final clash with Michael van Gerwen.
Van Gerwen produced the performance of the day as he eased past New Zealand number one Cody Harris, with a 107.89 average. The Dutchman made a blistering start and was averaging 126 after three legs, but Harris reduced the arrears to 3-2. However, MvG was not to be denied, taking out finishes of 84, 72 and 71 to secure an emphatic 6-2 victory.
Rhys Mathewson caused the shock of the tournament, as he fought back from 5-2 down to dump out eight-time major winner James Wade.
Wade looked to be heading for a comprehensive victory, but the 28-year-old from Melbourne capitalised on ‘The Machine’s missed match darts to force a last-leg shootout. In the deciding leg, Mathewson registered his fifth maximum and pinned tops, to seal a brilliant comeback victory on his TV debut.
Phil Taylor will begin the defence of his Ladbrokes Sydney Darts Masters title against Australia’s emerging star Corey Cadby, whilst world number one Michael van Gerwen will take on New Zealand’s Cody Harris, when the PDC World Series of Darts event kicks off at The Star on Thursday.
Taylor is yet to taste defeat in Sydney, having won all three of the tournament’s previous stagings. Nevertheless, the 56-year-old will face a tough test in the shape of Cadby. The 21-year-old Tasmanian has won an impressive seven DPA titles this year, and will be relishing the prospect of making his televised debut against ‘The Power’.
World number one Michael van Gerwen will take on New Zealand’s number one Cody Harris, who impressed in this year’s World Cup of Darts.
Van Gerwen could face his Dutch compatriot Raymond van Barneveld in the quarter-finals, although Van Barneveld has been handed a very tough draw against world number 30 Kyle Anderson. Anderson defeated the Dutchman 6-5 in Sydney two years ago, although the five-time world champion will be hoping to avenge that defeat this time around.
Australia’s number one Simon Whitlock will lock horns with eighth seed Peter Wright, who is yet to go beyond the quarter-finals of any World Series event in 2016. Elsewhere, Adrian Lewis, the 2015 Auckland Darts Masters winner, faces the experienced Kiwi Rob Szabo, twice a PDC World Championship qualifier.
