Michael van Gerwen continues European Tour dominance with Austrian Darts Open triumph

Michael van Gerwen secured his second European Tour title of the season at the 2022 Austrian Darts Open in Graz with an 8-5 defeat of Danny Noppert in the final.

Van Gerwen followed up his German Darts Championship triumph in March by adding a second £25,000 title of the campaign and a 34th on the Euro Tour in total.

The world number three overcame fellow Dutchman Noppert in front of a capacity crowd at the Premstättner Halle on Sunday night to continue his emphatic resurgence.

“I always want to win, I always put pressure on my shoulders so to win this title means a lot,” said Van Gerwen.

“We all had to wait a long time to play this tournament again but this crowd made it worth the wait; they were phenomenal, not just for me but for everyone in the tournament.

“It was really hard to perform on stage because of the heat which makes me even more proud of myself to get this win.”

Van Gerwen avenged Thursday’s Premier League Quarter-Final defeat to James Wade in Dublin with a narrow 6-5 victory, having recovered from 4-2 down with the aid of a 170 checkout.

Van Gerwen’s most impressive display of the weekend saw him average 106 in a 6-1 demolition of Dirk van Duijvenbode, before seeing off Stephen Bunting 7-5 in the Semi-Finals.

The final saw Noppert hit back from 3-0 down with a 120 checkout on the way to level at 3-3, and the pair remained all square four legs later.

The 12th leg proved decisive as Van Gerwen landed a 14-dart break of throw to open up daylight at 7-5, before following up with another 14-darter to seal victory.

The wait for a maiden European Tour title goes on for Noppert, who reached his first final having previously made the Semi-Finals on three occasions.

The reigning UK Open champion enjoyed victories over Premier League leader Jonny Clayton, Joe Cullen and Nathan Aspinall en route to the final.

It was another encouraging weekend for Aspinall on his return from injury, defeating Madars Razma and Ricky Evans on Sunday to reach the Last Four.

Bunting began the day by defeating Callan Rydz 6-4 and overcame European Champion Rob Cross by the same scoreline in the Quarter-Finals before eventually being halted by MVG.

The PDC European Tour continues with the European Darts Open from May 6-8 in Leverkusen.

Austrian Darts Open 2022 | Day Three Preview and Order of Play

The fourth European Tour title of the season is up for grabs in Graz on Sunday as the final 16 vie to claim Austrian Darts Open glory.

Eight of the top 16 seeds are left standing at the Steiermarkhalle, as well as eight in-form qualifiers bidding to capture the £25,000 top prize.

The afternoon session plays host to the Third Round ties, before the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and final take place in the evening.

One of the stand-out ties of the Last 16 sees Euro Tour title record holder Michael van Gerwen take on man of the moment James Wade.

Wade survived match darts from MVG before sealing a 6-5 victory in the Quarter-Finals of Thursday’s Premier League night in Dublin and eventually went on to win the title.

The world number five is bidding to end a six year wait for a European Tour title, while Van Gerwen is in search of his second of the season but will be determined to improve on a 92.7 average in his opening win over Cameron Menzies on Saturday.

The opening match of the afternoon sees reigning Premier League champion Jonny Clayton take on reigning UK Open champion Danny Noppert.

Clayton’s only Euro Tour title to date came at this event four years ago and the Welshman will be eyeing a marked improvement on his 91.7 average against Jeffrey de Zwaan on Saturday when he faces the Dutch ace who averaged 103 in defeating Dimitri van den Bergh.

Two former European Tour event winners collide as Joe Cullen takes on fellow top 16 star Krzysztof Ratajski – who averaged 101 in a 6-0 whitewash of Patrik Gosnak in his opener.

Danny Jansen aims to continue his dream Euro Tour debut by overcoming former Euro Tour event finalist Ricky Evans to reach the Quarter-Finals.

Jansen, winner of a ProTour event last month, has already seen off Radek Szagański and German Grand Prix winner Luke Humphries for the combined loss of just three legs, while Evans has impressed in his wins over Johan Engström and Damon Heta.

Madars Razma has proved to be another of the weekend’s stand-out performers so far, and the Latvian ace now comes up against former Premier League finalist Nathan Aspinall.

Razma averaged a personal record 108.65 in a First Round whitewash of Michael Rasztovits before knocking out second seed Jose de Sousa in the Last 32.

Recent Players Championship event winner Dirk van Duijvenbode aims to end home hopes in the competition when he faces crowd favourite Zoran Lerchbacher.

Van Duijvenbode began his campaign by defeating Rowby-John Rodriguez 6-4 and now faces another Austrian star in Lerchbacher – who took out 167 in the deciding leg to defeat Thibault Tricole, before completing a 6-3 scalp of Ryan Searle.

Reigning European Champion Rob Cross made light work of in-form youngster Josh Rock in Round Two and now faces German number one Gabriel Clemens – appearing at this stage of a Euro Tour event for only the second time after wins over Tony Martinez and Brendan Dolan.

The final match of the afternoon sees former Lakeside Champion Stephen Bunting take on World Championship quarter-finalist Callan Rydz – who knocked out world number one Peter Wright on Saturday evening.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Third Round and Quarter-Final ties to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.

Callan Rydz dispatches Peter Wright at the Austrian Darts Open as Jansen stuns Humphries

Callan Rydz pulled off a superb scalp of Peter Wright on Day Two of the 2022 Austrian Darts Open, while Danny Jansen continued his dream debut by beating Luke Humphries.

Rydz, who was beaten in an epic tie break set by Wright in the Quarter-Finals of the World Championship last December, completed a 6-3 victory with 66 per cent on the doubles and a 96 average.

Having trailed 3-2, Rydz reeled off four successive legs to progress to Sunday’s Last 16 – where Stephen Bunting awaits after he also ran out a 6-3 winner against Ross Smith.

Recent German Darts Grand Prix winner Humphries was knocked out in Round Two in Graz as rising Dutch star Jansen punished ten missed doubles from his opponent in a 6-2 success.

Jansen will now face Ricky Evans, who dispatched multiple ranking title winner Damon Heta 6-3 in the afternoon session.

Michael van Gerwen began his bid to retain the title in battling style, defying a 170 checkout from Cameron Menzies to claim a 6-3 win on the Premstättner Halle stage.

The Dutchman, seeking his second European Tour success of the year, led 3-0 before Menzies’ maximum finish helped cut the gap to one leg.

However, the Scot missed two darts to level in leg six and was punished as Van Gerwen regained a lead he would not relinquish.

Van Gerwen will open Sunday’s Third Round with a tasty tie against James Wade, after Thursday’s Premier League winner in Dublin defeated Brett Claydon 6-3.

Austrian hopes on the final day will rest on qualifier Zoran Lerchbacher – who delighted his home crowd once again with a 6-3 defeat of world number 16 Ryan Searle.

Lerchbacher now faces Dirk van Duijvenbode after the Dutchman finished six doubles from 11 attempts to see off another Austrian, Rowby-John Rodriguez.

Another mouth-watering third round tie sees UK Open champion Danny Noppert meet Premier League champion Jonny Clayton.

Dutchman Noppert overcame Dimitri Van den Bergh 6-3, while Clayton was a hard-fought 6-4 winner in his second round tie with Jeffrey De Zwaan.

Masters champion Joe Cullen finished six doubles from 11 attempts and took out 152 as he survived Jim Williams’ fightback from 3-0 down before claiming a 6-4 success.

Cullen now meets Krzysztof Ratajski after the former Gibraltar Darts Trophy winner returned to European Tour action in style with a 101 average in whitewashing Austrian qualifier Patrik Gosnak.

Madars Razma also enjoyed victory over a seeded player as he finished 6/12 doubles in his 6-3 win over Jose de Sousa, setting him up for a meeting with Nathan Aspinall after the former UK Open champion’s clinical 6-3 win over Wesley Plaisier.

Germany’s Gabriel Clemens claimed his second win of the weekend by seeing off Brendan Dolan 6-3 to book a Last 16 place – where he will take on Rob Cross – who impressed in a 6-2 win over in-form Norther Irish youngster Josh Rock.

Austrian Darts Open 2022 | Day Two Preview and Order of Play

The top 16 seeds commence their Austrian Darts Open campaigns in Graz on Saturday as the Second Round action takes centre stage.

The fourth European Tour event of the season features 48 players battling it out for £140,000 in prize money, with 16 qualifiers have progressed through Friday’s opening round to set up a meeting with one of the 16 seeded stars.

One of the stand-out ties of Round Two at the Steiermarkhalle sees Peter Wright take on Callan Rydz in a repeat of their epic World Championship Quarter-Final on New Year’s Day.

Wright pulled off a sensational fightback from 3-1 and 4-3 down to deny Rydz a landmark win in a ninth set tie break, before going on to lift the trophy at Ally Pally for the second time.

The world number one has since picked up a Players Championship title but is bidding to end a five-year wait for European Tour silverware.

Rydz has struggled for consistency so far this season but will be encouraged by his perfect start this weekend, having whitewashed Host Nation qualifier Dietmar Burger 6-0 with a 98 average on Friday.

Michael van Gerwen launches his latest quest for a second Euro Tour title of the year with a clash against WDF World Championship semi-finalist Cameron Menzies.

Van Gerwen suffered a Quarter-Final defeat in the Premier League in Dublin on Thursday and will be keen to bounce back, having also been whitewashed by Luke Humphries 7-0 in his Euro Tour outing a fortnight ago.

Menzies, who secured a Tour Card this year for the first time, defeated former World Champion Steve Beaton 6-4 in the opening round and now eyes what would be a huge upset.

German Grand Prix champion Humphries begins his pursuit of back-to-back European Tour titles with a tasty tussle against recent ProTour event winner Danny Jansen.

Jansen produced one of the stand-out performances of Round One with a 101 average in a 6-1 rout of Poland’s Radek Szagański to mark a dream debut.

Josh Rock also enjoyed a superb start to life on the Euro Tour as he averaged 101 in a 6-3 win over Devon Petersen, and the Northern Irish youngster now faces reigning European Champion Rob Cross.

The afternoon session sees multiple ranking event winner Damon Heta take on former Euro Tour event finalist Ricky Evans, while former Gibraltar Trophy winner Krzysztof Ratajski faces Host Nation hopeful Patrik Gosnak – who knocked out Ian White in Round One.

Former UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall faces a tricky opener against Associate Member qualifier Wesley Plaisier – who reached the Quarter-Finals of the recent German Grand Prix.

Former World Matchplay champion Dimitri Van den Bergh opens up against reigning UK Open champion Danny Noppert, while Masters Champion Joe Cullen meets Players Championship event winner Jim Williams in another notable clash.

Former World Grand Prix finalist Brendan Dolan takes on Gabriel Clemens – the sole German representative in the field, as number two seed Jose de Sousa looks to avoid a potential scalp at the hands of in-form Madars Razma – who set a personal record average of 108.65 in his 6-0 whitewash of Michael Rasztovits on Friday.

World number 16 Ryan Searle faces Austrian ace Zoran Lerchbacher – who landed a remarkable 167 checkout in the deciding leg to defeat WDF world finalist Thibault Tricole in Round One.

The evening session sees Thursday’s Premier League Night 12 winner James Wade take on UK qualifier Brett Claydon, as recent ProTour event winner Dirk van Duijvenbode meets home favourite Rowby-John Rodriguez.

Premier League champion Jonny Clayton, a former winner of this event, opens up against former World Matchplay semi-finalist Jeffrey de Zwaan, while former Lakeside Champion Stephen Bunting takes on former ProTour event winner Ross Smith.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Second Round matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.

Josh Rock and Danny Jansen enjoy dream Euro Tour debuts at the Austrian Darts Open

Josh Rock and Danny Jansen enjoyed impressive European Tour debuts with ton-plus averages on their way to victory on Day One of the 2022 Austrian Darts Open in Graz.

Rock, twice a quarter-finalist on the ProTour in his debut season as a PDC Tour Card holder, continued his superb spell of form by averaging 101 in a 6-3 win over former Euro Tour event winner Devon Petersen.

The Northern Irish youngster will now face reigning European Champion Rob Cross in Saturday’s Second Round.

Jansen, who picked up a maiden Players Championship title at the beginning of April, also got his Euro Tour campaign off to a flying start by thrashing Poland’s Radek Szaganski 6-1 with a 101 average and a high checkout of 121.

The 19-year-old will now meet recent German Grand Prix winner Luke Humphries in the Last 32.

Meanwhile, Madars Razma stole the show on the opening day of the season’s fourth European Tour event with a personal best 108.65 average in a 6-0 whitewash of Host Nation qualifier Michael Rasztovits, landing six doubles from eight attempts.

Zoran Lerchbacher won a thriller against French debutant Thibault Tricole by producing a sensational 167 checkout in the deciding leg of their tie.

Rowby-John Rodriguez overcame Darius Labanauskas 6-3 to move through to face Dirk van Duijvenbode on Saturday.

Austrian debutant Patrik Gosnak was the day’s other home winner as he pulled off a 6-4 scalp of three-time Euro Tour event winner Ian White from 4-3 down.

There was disappointment, though, for four other Austrians on the day – including Mensur Suljovic, who missed two match darts before losing out 6-5 to Jeffrey de Zwaan.

Debutant Rainer Sturm also lost out in a deciding leg, having led 5-4 against Brett Claydon before the English qualifier edged through to face Thursday’s Premier League Night 12 winner James Wade.

Dietmar Burger also suffered a crushing 6-0 loss, going down to a ruthless Callan Rydz as the World Championship quarter-finalist set up a meeting with world number one Peter Wright.

UK Open champion Danny Noppert took out 104 in the deciding leg of his all-Dutch clash with Jermaine Wattimena to confirm a clash with Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Stephen Bunting survived four missed match darts from Karel Sedlacek before edging through with a 6-5 victory after the Czech qualifier came from 3-0 down to force a decider.

Ricky Evans averaged 100 in a 6-4 defeat of Johan Engstrom from 3-0 down to set up a show-down with Damon Heta.

Cameron Menzies will take on Michael van Gerwen on Saturday evening following his 6-4 success over Steve Beaton, while Jim Williams’ 6-1 rout of a struggling Berry van Peer set up a clash with Masters champion Joe Cullen.

In-form Dutch qualifier Wesley Plaisier overcame Matt Campbell 6-3, despite the Canadian missing double 12 to complete a nine-darter, and now plays Nathan Aspinall.

Gabriel Clemens closed out a commanding 6-1 win over Spanish newcomer Tony Martinez and will face Brendan Dolan in Round Two.
