Wiley Anderson on Petersen Foxes

Gary Anderson said last week that this year has been a write-off. He sees the tournament as a dead end. But judging by this demonstration, he has every reason to believe that a third world title is within reach in the coming days.

Following his explosive ‘table-gate’ interview, Anderson shared a joke with Petersen during his interview. But once the match started, there was no mess; he was straight to business, winning the first set without losing a leg.

The African Warrior responded by winning the first two rounds of the second set. However, Anderson knocked out the underdog with a 160 control, followed by two more innings to forge a 2-0 lead.

Petersen again took a 2-0 lead in the third stanza, but once again the two-time world champion came back strong, breaking the South African’s throw into the decider with a 12 stinger for a third straight set. .

This seemed to shatter Petersen’s resolve, as the Flying Scotsman used all of his experience to secure a white victory.

Gurney walks past Vincent van der Voort

Gurney picked up where he left off in his impressive win over Chris Dobey, with a breaking pitch with a control of 125 in the first leg. This laid the groundwork for him to take the first set.

The Derry native had a chance to take a 2-0 lead, but failed to find the outside ring with two darts, and the tall Dutchman leveled it. Still, the Premier League star didn’t let that disappointment affect him, rebounding with a 10-stinger, having missed D12 for a perfect leg. He proceeded to comfortably take the third set.

Van der Voort couldn’t stop his opponent’s momentum as the two-time major winner broke with an arrival in Shanghai to take the fourth set. The Dutch destroyer pulled one out, but Gurney was too strong.

The 11th seed showed nerves, missing six match darts, before coming back to finish the job in the next inning.

Last Leg Bunting Maker

Six years later, since Bunting reached the quarterfinal of the PDC World Championship in his debut, the 35-year-old is back in the final eight.

The two players were tied

The Bullet took the first set with relative ease against the throw, but Heavy Metal then took the contest by storm.

Searle brought the second set to a decisive stage, but it seemed like a lost cause when Bunting opened with a maximum. Searle was entitled to a shot at the bull, but didn’t seize the opportunity, and the former Premier League star took a 2-0 lead.

Bunting missed six set darts in the third and Searle pulled it down to 2-1. The 26th seed’s failure to build a 3-0 cushion seemed like a major turning point. Within minutes, they were level two each.

The interval seemed right on time for the St Helens native. He reappeared with a boost in his step, winning four consecutive rounds.

However, Searle was never going to lie down without a fight, and responded with four unanswered legs, taking the deciding set lead.

‘Heavy Metal’ then produced a superb 11 sting against the throw to move into one of the matches. But Bunting responded in kind with an 11-dart break and checked 107 to force a last-leg decider.
