PDC World Matchplay - Quarterfinals 2
The second quarterfinal evening Rob Cross probably will remember as a pitch-black day - he couldn't keep up his so far great performances at all and the match was mostly shaped by his problems to hit a double. At one time his hitting rate was 7 percent. It improved till the end of the match to 21 percent but the deserved 16:7 winner of the match in the end was Michael Smith. Smith will play in the semi-finals against Michael von Gerwen who won 16:10 against Andrew Gilding who even had been in the lead early in the match but probably had some problems with the long format of the match.
