World Series of Darts Finale - Day 1
On the first day of the World Series of Darts finals many of the players were slightly rusty after the long tournament break and we did see a lot of only average performances. In the best match of the first round between Krzysztof Ratajski and Mensur Suljovic the only Austrian representative was eliminated despite playing with 102.64 the highest average of the night. Surprisingly eliminated were as well Dave Chisnall, Joe Cullen and Ian White. Fallon Sherrock didn't survive the first round either - she lost a very close match against Canadian Jeff Smith who won with a comeback the match in the deciding leg with 6:5.
Tonight the tournament continues with the second round and the seeded players will enter the event.

Last of the table Daryl Gurney of all people played on the crucial last League Day before the Play-Offs a decisive role - he defeated the reigning champion Michael van Gerwen with 8:2. So the Dutchman had no longer a chance to progress into the Play-Offs and ended behind Gerwyn Price on the sixth place of the table.

On the 14. League Night of Premier League Glen Durrant managed with a draw against Michael van Gerwen to stay at the head of the table and to secure himself a place in the play-offs. Van Gerwen won a point but stays on the fifth place of the table which means he has to collect more points on the remaining two nights to get into the play-offs. Gerwyn Price and Daryl Gurney drew as well and Gurney now has as bottom of the table with only nine points no longer a chance to qualify for the play-offs. It doesn't look too good for Michael Smith either - he lost 2:8 to Gary Anderson and has to win his two remaining matches to still have a chance to progress. Peter Wright defeated Nathan Aspinall with an outstanding performance 8:5 and moved up to the third place of the table - three points behind Anderson and five behind Durrant.

There were a lot of positive reactions on the announcement of a PDC Women's Mini series - both Laura Turner and Lisa Ashton were delighted. Turner advises the female players to take this chance. Rod Studd who still recovers at home from his heart attack, appreciates this decision. He already advocates for many years that the PDC offers more opportunities for women's darts.

Beside we heard Michael van Gerwen learns for a sailing license, Peter Wright considers after the problems with his glasses during thge World Matchplay laser treatment as a solution, Gary Anderson intends to change to heavier darts. Mike van Duijvenbode plans a long break - he has problems with his throwing arm. He will not take part in the Autumn series but might be the break will be much longer.
Devon Petersen has positive feelings about the lockdown - finally he had time without time pressure to really work at his game. He said in "normal times" between tournaments he is only able to get rid of alpha errors.
Far from happy about his work during the World Matchplay was John Part,who as a Canadian had a problem to get to Milton Keynes at all and had to stay there isolated in his room all the time ... nevertheless he hopes he will be able to return for the Premier League.
