Luke Humphries completes Euro Tour hat-trick at the European Darts Grand Prix

Luke Humphries secured his third European Tour title of the season at the 2022 European Darts Grand Prix in Stuttgart with an 8-7 victory over Rob Cross in the final.

Humphries was victorious against Cross a week ago in Prague to claim the Czech Darts Open title, and matched that result to seal a third European Tour triumph of the year in style.

Cross this time took the final all the way to a deciding leg, but was forced to settle for second prize for a seventh time on the European Tour – and in his third decider of the year – as Humphries took out 108 for glory.

“It’s fantastic,” said Humphries. “Rob’s one of the nicest guys in the PDC and it’s no coincidence [that] we have practiced together for the last two European Tours and made the final together.

“It was a great game, full of everything. At the start of that game we must have been averaging 113-114, it felt amazing. I know I dropped off a little bit but then I missed because Rob put me under pressure.

“I thought I played fantastic there but Rob was the better player overall because he was consistent throughout the whole game.

“I missed a couple of match darts but that 108 was clinical and one of the best out-shots of my career.

“I’m making huge strides in the game and there’s a lot more to come.”

Humphries steadily improved as the day progressed, seeing off Joe Murnan 6-3 in the Last 16 before whitewashing Brendan Dolan in the Quarter-Finals with a 100 average and then posting a 108 average in a 7-4 Semi-Final defeat of Peter Wright.

Cross clinched the opening leg of the final on double 18 and hit six perfect darts in leg two, only for Humphries to level in 11 darts and then claim two five-visit legs to move 3-1 up.

Cross hit legs of 14 and 13 darts in response either side of an 11-darter from Humphries, who then produced a remarkable eighth leg where he scored 21, 180 and a second 180 before finishing 120 for a 12-darter and a 5-3 cushion.

Humphries then powered in a sixth 180 of the final in another 11-darter to break throw for a three-leg lead.

Superb legs of 13 and 14 darts from Cross saw the gap closed to one leg, only for a clinical 121 bullseye finish to move Humphries a leg away from victory at 7-5.

Two missed match darts, at double 18, in the 13th leg allowed Cross to keep his hopes alive at 7-6, and another chance to close out victory – this time at double 16 – went begging as the 2018 World Champion forced a decider.

Cross was first to a finish in the decider, but was unable to give himself a dart at a double on 118, and Humphries stepped in to complete a 108 combination for the title.

Cross began the final day in scintillating fashion by landing a 170 checkout and finishing six doubles from as many attempts in a 6-4 Third Round win over Krzysztof Ratajski.

He then overcame Rowby-John Rodriguez in the Last Eight by the same scoreline, before averaging an unstoppable 110.7 in a 7-4 Semi-Final success over Damon Heta.

However, the reigning European Champion was left to rue another loss in a European Tour final – his seventh in a run spanning five years since turning professional in 2017.

“I’m glad I don’t struggle with ‘majors’ to win them – these are ten times harder!” admitted Cross.

“Credit to Luke, I thought he played great, he was the better player and if he hit doubles earlier I was out of there earlier.

“He’s superb and I’ve got a lot of time for him.”

Heta was appearing in his second Euro Tour Semi-Final of the season after enjoying wins in deciding legs against Ryan Searle and Martin Schindler.

World Champion Wright continued a strong weekend with 6-1 wins over Premier League champion Jonny Clayton and UK Open champion Danny Noppert – where he averaged 111 to reach his first European Tour Semi-Final since February.

European Darts Grand Prix 2022 | Day Three Preview and Order of Play

The seventh European Tour silverware of the season is up for grabs in Stuttgart on Sunday as the final 16 vie for European Darts Grand Prix glory.

Six seeds were sent packing on a dramatic Day Two at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle, including three of the top four, opening up the top half of the draw in particular.

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

Among the stand-out matches in the Last 16 is an all-Premier League clash between table topper Jonny Clayton and play-off chasing Peter Wright.

Both are aiming to end considerable droughts on the European Tour, with Clayton’s sole success coming in 2018, while Wright last lifted a trophy five years ago.

Martin Lukeman continues his quest to reach a second Euro Tour final of the season when he faces home favourite Martin Schindler.

Lukeman pulled off a remarkable 6-1 rout of Michael van Gerwen in Saturday’s Second Round and now aims to silence the partisan Stuttgart crowd by ending German hopes in the event.

UK Open champion Danny Noppert, who overcame Michael Smith on Saturday in a repeat of their final in Minehead, now faces emerging star Nathan Rafferty.

World Youth finalist Rafferty stunned Dirk van Duijvenbode with a 101.7 average and four 180s in a 6-3 victory to reach this stage of a Euro Tour event for the first time.

Luke Humphries resumes his quest for back-to-back Euro Tour titles and a third of the campaign when he meets former Players Championship event winner Joe Murnan.

Humphries, now into the world’s top 16, held his nerve to edge past Ryan Meikle in a deciding leg on Saturday, while Murnan followed up a 6-0 whitewash of Lukas Wenig by denying Dimitri van den Bergh in a last-leg shoot-out.

In-form Austrian Rowby-John Rodriguez is aiming to secure back-to-back Quarter-Final appearances in as many weekends and comes up against former German Championship winner Daryl Gurney – who will be eyeing a marked improvement on his match average of 84 against Eddie Lovely.

Rob Cross, a six-time Euro Tour finalist, is out to go one better than his runner-up spot in Prague a week ago, but faces a tough test against world number 14 Krzysztof Ratajski – who averaged 99 with six from six on the doubles in defeating Kim Huybrechts.

A mouth-watering clash sees former World Series event winner Damon Heta, the number eight seed, take on three-time ProTour event winner Ryan Searle.

Heta held firm to deny Mickey Mansell in a deciding leg on Saturday, while Searle sealed a commanding 6-2 win over Adam Gawlas to avenge his defeat in Prague a week earlier.

Seven-time Players Championship event winner Brendan Dolan and recent ProTour finalist Andrew Gilding meet for the second time on the Euro Tour this season, with Dolan having pulled off a 6-0 whitewash at the European Open with a 103.6 average.

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.

Martin Lukeman thrashes Michael van Gerwen at the European Darts Grand Prix

Martin Lukeman pulled off an emphatic 6-1 rout of Michael van Gerwen in the Second Round of the 2022 European Darts Grand Prix in Stuttgart on Saturday.

Lukeman, runner-up in last month’s German Darts Grand Prix, continued his love affair with the European Tour by claiming the scalp of the world number three.

Van Gerwen had won three of the opening six European Tour events of the year, but was punished for 13 missed doubles and an average of just 89.7 as Lukeman claimed a memorable success at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle.

“I’m just beating whoever is in front of me, it’s more ranking points!” said Lukeman. “I just need to win one [a Euro Tour title] now, as long as I don’t play Luke Humphries I’ll be alright!”

Lukeman, who averaged 96.2 and landed three 180s, will now face Martin Schindler in Sunday afternoon’s Third Round, with the German ace having defeated Latvia’s Madars Razma 6-2 to delight his home crowd.

Luke Humphries, who picked up his second Euro Tour title of 2022 in Prague last weekend, edged out Ryan Meikle in a last-leg decider to commence his latest quest for silverware.

The former World Youth Champion will begin Sunday’s Last 16 against Joe Murnan – who recovered from 4-2 down to defeat Dimitri van den Bergh in a decider.

Premier League leader Jonny Clayton hit back from 2-0 down against Adrian Lewis to move into the final day of action with a 6-3 success.

Clayton’s third round opponent will be World Champion Peter Wright after the world number one came reeled off five consecutive legs from 2-1 down to see off Sweden’s Johan Engstrom.

Danny Noppert defied a 103 average from Michael Smith to progress with a 6-4 win from a high-quality contest in a repeat of the UK Open final, averaging 102 in reply and sealing victory with a 124 checkout.

Noppert’s will now meet Nathan Rafferty on Sundat after the emerging Northern Irish star averaged 101.7 and took out 138 during a superb 6-3 defeat of Dirk van Duijvenbode.

Masters champion Joe Cullen was unable to repeat the form of Thursday’s Premier League triumph at The O2 in London as he went down 6-3 to in-form Rowby-John Rodriguez.

Rodriguez now faces Daryl Gurney after the former World Grand Prix winner came from 4-3 down to defeat Eddie Lovely 6-4 in a gruelling battle, sealing victory with a 120 checkout.

Ryan Searle finished six doubles from ten attempts in his 6-2 win over Adam Gawlas, taking out 143 and 114 in the process, and now plays Damon Heta after the Australian edged out Mickey Mansell in the deciding leg of a high-quality affair.

Krzysztof Ratajski produced a flawless display of finishing with six doubles from as many attempts in defeating Kim Huybrechts 6-2.

He now plays reigning European Champion Rob Cross, who was a 6-5 winner against Jelle Klaasen as a 14-darter snatched victory in their deciding leg.

European Darts Grand Prix 2022 | Day Two Preview and Order of Play

The seeded stars commence their European Darts Grand Prix campaigns in Stuttgart on Saturday as the Second Round action takes centre stage.

The seventh Euro Tour event of the season features 47 players battling it out for £140,000 in prize money, with 15 qualifiers having 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 the Second Round sees reigning Premier League champion and this season’s table-topper Jonny Clayton take on two-time World Champion Adrian Lewis.

Clayton is aiming to end a four-year wait for a European Tour title and heads to Stuttgart having lost in the final of Night 15 of the Premier League at The O2 in London on Thursday.

Lewis, meanwhile, reached the Last 16 in Prague a week ago, defeating Gerwyn Price in a controversial clash along the way, and will be out to deny another Welsh star having edged past Luke Woodhouse in Round One.

The evening also features a repeat of March’s UK Open as Premier League star Michael Smith vies for revenge over champion Danny Noppert.

Peter Wright, who opted out of last week’s Czech Darts Open, returns to Euro Tour action to face Sweden’s Johan Engstrom – who knocked out German number one Gabriel Clemens in a deciding leg to earn his first win on the Euro Tour.

Luke Humphries kicks off his pursuit of a second successive Euro Tour title and a third of the season when he takes on Ipswich left-hander Ryan Meikle – a six-time Development Tour winner.

Fresh from Thursday’s Premier League triumph in London to boost his play-off hopes, Joe Cullen starts his campaign in Stuttgart against in-form Rowby-John Rodriguez – quarter-finalist in Prague last weekend and a 6-5 winner over Jim Williams on Friday.

Michael van Gerwen, a winner of three Euro Tour titles already this term, faces a tricky opener against German Darts Grand Prix runner-up Martin Lukeman – who averaged 97 in a 6-3 win over Switzerland’s Stefan Bellmont in Round One.

Dirk van Duijvenbode, winner of a ProTour event this season, has his sights set on claiming a maiden Euro Tour crown, and starts his latest quest against World Youth finalist Nathan Rafferty – appearing at this stage of a Euro Tour event for the first time.

German hopes once again rest solely on the shoulders of Martin Schindler, and the country’s most in-form darter aims to delight an expectant crowd by overcoming Latvia’s Madars Razma.

The afternoon session begins with a tie between Damon Heta, the number eight seed, and resurgent left-hander Mickey Mansell – who reached the Last 16 in Prague and thrashed Radek Szagański 6-1 here on Day One.

Dimitri van den Bergh, runner-up in Leverkusen a fortnight ago, faces former ProTour event winner Joe Murnan, while 15th seed Brendan Dolan hosts 19-year-old Dutch star Danny Jansen – who swept aside Martijn Kleermaker 6-1 on Friday.

Former World Champion Jelle Klaasen – who marked his return to the Euro Tour with an impressive win over Callan Rydz – now aims to knock out European Champion Rob Cross – last week’s beaten finalist.

Ryan Searle aims to avenge last week’s 6-5 defeat to Czech youngster Adam Gawlas in the Third Round when the pair go head-to-head once again.

Two former Euro Tour event winners collide as 12th seed Krzysztof Ratajski faces Kim Huybrechts, while second seed Jose de Sousa meets recent ProTour event finalist Andrew Gilding.

Two-time major champion Daryl Gurney opens up against Tour Card Qualifier Eddie Lovely – who received a bye in Round One following the withdrawal of Gerwyn Price.

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

Jelle Klaasen enjoys impressive Euro Tour return at the European Darts Grand Prix

Jelle Klaasen made a winning return to the PDC European Tour with victory over Callan Rydz in Round One of the 2022 European Darts Grand Prix in Stuttgart on Friday.

Former World Champion Klaasen last competed on the European Tour in 2020, but came through the Associate Member Qualifiers to seal a spot in the £140,000 event.

He impressed in a 6-4 win over World Championship quarter-finalist Callan Rydz, opening with an 11-darter and a 120 finish to establish a lead he would never surrender.

Klaasen now faces reigning European Champion Rob Cross in a tasty Second Round tie on Saturday at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle.

Adam Gawlas, a quarter-finalist in the Czech Darts Open last weekend, also shone on Friday with a 100 average in his 6-3 defeat of Ryan Joyce, setting up a rematch with Ryan Searle.

Danny Noppert and Michael Smith will meet in a repeat of March’s UK Open final after Noppert enjoyed a comfortable 6-3 success over Karel Sedlacek.

April’s German Grand Prix finalist Martin Lukeman enjoyed another strong European Tour display as he finished six from ten on the doubles in a 6-3 defeat of Switzerland’s Stefan Bellmont.

Lukeman, who landed a 111 checkout and sealed victory with a ten-dart leg, will now face Michael van Gerwen in Saturday’s Second Round.

Two-time World Champion Adrian Lewis battled back from 4-1 and 5-2 down to edge past Luke Woodhouse with four consecutive legs and set up a show-down with Premier League table-topper Jonny Clayton.

Joe Murnan whitewashed German qualifier Lukas Wenig 6-0 to move through to a meeting with Dimitri Van den Bergh, while Mickey Mansell’s 6-1 defeat of Radek Szaganski ensures he opens Saturday’s action against Australian ace Damon Heta.

Andrew Gilding’s dominant 6-1 win over John Michael moves him into a clash with Jose de Sousa, while Ryan Meikle now plays double European Tour event winner Luke Humphries following a strong 6-2 defeat of Ron Meulenkamp.

Rowby-John Rodriguez produced a 12-darter in the deciding leg of his clash with Jim Williams to secure a second round meeting with Joe Cullen – Thursday’s Premier League Night 15 winner in London.

There was disappointment for Germany’s Gabriel Clemens – who came from 3-0 down to force a deciding leg against Johan Engstrom – only for the Swedish qualifier to prevail and move through to meet World Champion Peter Wright.

Stephen Bunting recovered from 5-2 down to force a decider against Kim Huybrechts, before missing a dart for victory as the Belgian held his nerve to set up a clash with Krzysztof Ratajski.

Madars Razma will meet German talisaman Martin Schindler following a narrow 6-5 win over Niels Zonneveld, while Danny Jansen dropped just one leg in his all-Dutch tie with Martijn Kleermaker to create a second round meeting with Brendan Dolan.
