Dimitri van den Bergh has broken into the world’s top 16 for the first time following his sensational World Matchplay triumph.

Van den Bergh entered his debut Betfred World Matchplay campaign as world number 26, but a remarkable run to victory in Milton Keynes has seen him climb 14 places to a career-high 12th on the PDC Order of Merit.

The 26-year-old defeated Gary Anderson 18-10 in the final to became only the tenth different winner of the prestigious tournament since 1994 and the first Belgian to win a major PDC title.

As well as the £150,000 top prize which sees him soar into the elite top 16, ‘The Dream Maker’ is now also assured of a place in November’s Grand Slam of Darts.

Anderson, who was bidding to defend his title winning prize money from 2018, drops one place into ninth and is leapfrogged by James Wade.

Michael Smith, who reached the Semi-Finals in Milton Keynes, has moved above 2019 Matchplay champion Rob Cross into fourth, becoming England’s top-ranked player.

Glen Durrant, who embarked on a run to the Last Four for the second successive year, continued his rapid rise in his first 18 months as a Tour Card holder, moving into 13th position.

Despite a resurgent run to the Quarter-Finals, Adrian Lewis has dropped two places to 16th, while fellow quarter-finalist Simon Whitlock slips out of the top 16 into 17th.

Mensur Suljovic and Krzysztof Ratajski both drop two places to 14th and 15th respectively, while Stephen Bunting and Joe Cullen both drop three places to 20th and 21st respectively.

Danny Noppert, who enjoyed an impressive First Round scalp of Gerwyn Price, is up two places to 22nd, becoming the new Dutch number two and putting himself in line for a debut in this year’s World Cup of Darts.

Jeffrey de Zwaan, who reached the Semi-Finals in Blackpool two years ago, is down three places to 24th after suffering a First Round exit at the hands of Durrant.

After failing to qualify for the World Matchplay, Mervyn King has dropped five places to 27th, while Vincent van der Voort’s superb run to the Quarter-Finals for the first time since 2009 sees him climb five places to 28th.

Darren Webster is down three places to 32nd after also failing to qualify, while Germany’s Gabriel Clemens climbs four places to 36th after reaching the Last 16 on debut.

Another debutant – Ryan Joyce – is also up three spots to 39th, having claimed his first PDC ranking title during the Summer Series earlier this month.
