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

The third European Tour title of the season is up for grabs in Munich on Easter Monday as the final 16 vie to claim German Darts Grand Prix glory.

Eight of the top 16 seeds are left standing at The Zenith, 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.

A repeat of last month’s German Championship final sees Michael van Gerwen aiming to deny Rob Cross on the Euro Tour once again.

Van Gerwen prevailed 8-5 in the final on that occasion to seal his 33rd European Tour title and has enjoyed a superb start to the season, moving top of the Premier League table and picking up two ProTour titles.

The world number three averaged 105.5 in a narrow 6-5 win over Chris Dobey on Sunday, while Cross saw off Karel Sedlacek 6-3 with a 92.5 average.

The opening tie of the afternoon sees UK Open semi-finalist Keane Barry take on an in-form Martin Lukeman.

Barry defeated Host Nation qualifier Lukas Wenig 6-3 on Saturday before receiving a bye in the Second Round following the withdrawal of Gerwyn Price through illness.

Lukeman, meanwhile, finds himself at this stage of a European Tour event for the second time this year following successive 6-3 wins over Adam Gawlas and German number one Gabriel Clemens.

Number three seed Michael Smith looks to remain in contention for a fifth European Tour title when he takes on Players Championship event winner Luke Humphries in one of the stand-out ties of the Third Round.

Smith averaged 101 in his opening salvo against Berry van Peer, while Humphries battled past Jeffrey de Zwaan 6-4 despite an average of 90.6.

Scott Waites looks to continue his terrific spell of form when he comes up against former World Series event winner Damon Heta.

Waites held his nerve to knock out world number one Peter Wright in a deciding leg on Sunday, and the two-time BDO World Champion now faces another formidable test against one of the most consistent performers on the circuit this season.

Heta began his campaign this weekend by dispatching five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld 6-4 with a 99.7 average.

Martin Schindler, runner-up on the ProTour this season, looks to delight a partisan Munich crowd once again by seeing off world number 16 Ryan Searle.

Schindler has already overcome Jermaine Wattimena and Brendan Dolan en route to this stage, while Searle swept aside Danny Baggish 6-2 with a 100.2 average.

Premier League champion Jonny Clayton, whose only previous Euro Tour title came in 2018, aims to silence the home crowd by ending the run of a resurgent Max Hopp.

Clayton averaged 102.3 in defeating Dave Chisnall in his opener, while former German Open champion Hopp has knocked out Alan Soutar and Dimitri van den Bergh in an impressive run so far.

Latvia’s Madars Razma, a former ProTour event finalist, faces a closely-matched encounter with former World Youth champion Keegan Brown.

Razma has already put paid to the chances of Kim Huybrechts and second seed Jose de Sousa this weekend, while Brown has beaten fellow young guns Adam Hunt and Callan Rydz.

An all-Dutch clash sees recent ProTour event winner Dirk van Duijvenbode out to end the landmark run of Associate Member qualifier Wesley Plaisier – who has seen off Jim Williams and Joe Cullen in a memorable campaign so far.

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.

Gerwyn Price withdraws from the German Darts Grand Prix

Gerwyn Price has withdrawn from the 2022 German Darts Grand Prix in Munich through illness.

The world number two was due to face Keane Barry in the Second Round at The Zenith on Sunday evening.

However, after feeling unwell with suspected tonsillitis, Price has opted to withdraw from the German Darts Grand Prix, meaning Barry receives a bye into the Last 16 on Monday.

The Irish youngster will await the winner of the tie between German number one Gabriel Clemens and Martin Lukeman.

He began the weekend by defeating Host Nation qualifier Lukas Wenig 6-4 in the opening round.

Price was the number one seed, having won the International Open title in Riesa in February and had the opportunity to reclaim the world number one spot from Peter Wright.

The Welshman will now turn his attention to recovering in time for Thursday’s Premier League trip to Aberdeen – where he is due to face Michael van Gerwen in the Quarter-Finals.

The 37-year-old has already missed one night of the Premier League due to a fractured bone in his throwing hand and finds himself seven points adrift of the play-off places.

Price changed his walk-on music to Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ for the first time ahead of last Thursday’s Premier League night in Manchester, having used ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by Vanilla Ice since joining the PDC in 2014.

Gerwyn Price, the number one seed, starts his quest for a second Euro Tour title of the season with a tie against UK Open semi-finalist Keane Barry – who currently occupies a provisional qualification spot for the World Matchplay.

World Champion and world number one Peter Wright opens up with a clash against two-time BDO World Champion Scott Waites – who thrashed Germany’s Dragutin Horvat 6-1 in his opener.

Reigning Masters champion Joe Cullen starts out against Dutch qualifier Wesley Plaisier – who produced the stand-out performance of the First Round with a 104 average in defeating Jim Williams 6-3.

Premier League champion Jonny Clayton faces a formidable opening test against multiple major finalist Dave Chisnall – who landed six 180s and averaged 98 in a 6-4 win over Ryan Meikle on opening night at The Zenith.

Two-time European Champion Rob Cross, runner-up in the recent German Championship, will take on Czech ace Karel Sedlacek – who received a bye in the First Round.

Dirk van Duijvenbode, winner of a Players Championship event last weekend, looks to continue his blistering run of form when he meets Croatia’s Boris Krcmar.

Jose de Sousa, the number two seed, faces off against Latvia’s Madars Razma – who dispatched Kim Huybrechts in Round One.

The afternoon session also sees World Championship quarter-finalist Callan Rydz take on former World Youth champion Keegan Brown and 2021 UK Open finalist Luke Humphries face a resurgent Jeffrey de Zwaan.

Martin Schindler, one of three German hopefuls left standing in the competition, aims to delight a partisan Munich crowd by overcoming former World Grand Prix finalist Brendan Dolan.

German number one Gabriel Clemens hosts in-form Martin Lukeman, while former Euro Tour event winner Max Hopp returns to face former World Matchplay champion Dimitri van den Bergh.

One of the stand-out ties of the evening session sees Australian number one Damon Heta take on five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld – who marked his Euro Tour return for the first time in three years by whitewashing James Wilson on Saturday.

Michael van Gerwen launches his pursuit of back-to-back European Tour titles with a show-down against world number 31 Chris Dobey – the man he was due to face at the World Championship before being ruled out due to a positive Covid test.

Ryan Searle, who has claimed a ProTour title in each of the last three years, begins his latest challenge for a maiden European Tour title against Danny Baggish – who became the first American to win a match on the Euro Tour 24 hours ago.

World Championship and UK Open finalist Michael Smith comes up against a rejuvenated Berry van Peer – the former Challenge Tour event winner who knocked out Sweden’s Daniel Larsson with a 95.6 average on Saturday.

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

Raymond van Barneveld enjoys whitewash win at the German Darts Grand Prix as Plaisier stuns Williams

Raymond van Barneveld enjoyed a whitewash win over James Wilson on the opening day of the 2022 German Darts Grand Prix as Wesley Plaisier produced the performance of the day to defeat Jim Williams.

Van Barneveld, making his first European Tour appearance since 2019, swept aside former World Masters finalist Wilson 6-0 with a 95 average and 55 per cent on the doubles to set up a Second Round clash with Damon Heta on Sunday.

Van Barneveld’s Dutch compatriot Plaisier registered the highest average of the First Round (104.05) as he knocked out recent Players Championship event winner Williams 6-3 with a 128 checkout along the way.

German duo Max Hopp and Martin Schindler delighted the Munich crowd with victories over Alan Soutar and Jermaine Wattimena respectively.

Hopp, a former Euro Tour event winner, defied a bout of ‘double trouble’ to battle his way to a 6-4 win, while recent ProTour finalist Schindler landed three maximums on his way to a 6-3 success.

Dave Chisnall and Ryan Meikle both averaged 98 in a high quality climax to the evening session, with Chisnall progressing by a 6-4 scoreline with the aid of six 180s.

Jeffrey de Zwaan landed a timely 98 checkout in the deciding leg to edge out Dutch counterpart Vincent van der Voort 6-5.

Scott Waites continued his impressive record of winning every First Round match he has competed in on the European Tour by thrashing Dragutin Horvat 6-1 to set up a show-down with Peter Wright on Sunday.

Danny Baggish became the first American to compete on the PDC European Tour and enjoyed a winning debut by seeing off Switzerland’s Thomas Junghans 6-2.

Croatia’s Boris Krcmar began the day with a 6-3 win over Luke Woodhouse, while Martin Lukeman dispatched Czech youngster Adam Gawlas by the same scoreline.

Chris Dobey defeated former World Masters champion John O’Shea 6-2, notably winning a leg in 30 darts after a marathon of missed doubles between the pair.

Berry van Peer continued his bright start to the season by averaging 95.7 in a 6-4 triumph over Sweden’s Daniel Larsson, while former World Youth champion Keegan Brown overcame Adam Hunt 6-2 with a 95.2 average and a high checkout of 129.

Madars Razma battled his way to a 6-4 victory over Kim Hubrechts with a 150 checkout to his name and goes through to face Jose de Sousa.

UK Open semi-finalist Keane Barry will face Gerwyn Price in Round Two after dispatching Host Nation qualifier Lukas Wenig 6-4.
