Gerwyn Price denies Dirk van Duijvenbode to regain World Series Finals title

Gerwyn Price secured his second World Series Finals title with a thrilling 11-10 victory over Dirk van Duijvenbode in the final in Amsterdam on Sunday.

Price, whose initial triumph came two years ago, backed up last month’s New Zealand Masters success by scooping the £70,000 top prize at the AFAS Live.

He was pushed all the way by home favourite Van Duijvenbode in a pulsating final, eventually securing the title with a 90 finish for a 14-darter.

A high-quality start saw the pair trade 14-darters in the opening four legs before Price broke for a 3-2 lead, and he then pinned tops to open up a two-leg cushion.

Three successive legs from Van Duijvenbode saw him move ahead again at 5-4, and he added a 12-darter as he retained the edge.

Price took out 146, 121 and 116 as he came from 7-6 down to lead 9-8 – pouncing on a miss at double 18 from Van Duijvenbode in leg 17.

The Dutchman – who had taken out 112 in leg 15 – hit back with a superb 11-darter and fired in double four to move 10-9 up, putting himself on the brink of a maiden big-stage title.

Price showed his class with a 12-darter to take the final to a deciding leg, and after being first to a finish during a tense climax, the Welshman took out 90 on double 15 to seal glory.

“I’m thrilled to get over the line,” said Price, who ended the final with a 100 average. “Dirk played fantastic but I think I played a little bit better.

“It was a great game but I made it really difficult for myself. There were two or three legs where I missed doubles, and at five-all going into the second break I probably could have been 7-3 up.

“I knew from there on in it was going to be a tough battle; Dirk was playing really well and obviously the crowd were supporting him but I dug in there right until the end.

“I gave myself a chance in the last-leg decider and scraped over the line.

“I’m more than experienced with these sort of crowds, and fair play to them – they were all cheering for their man but I think they were quite respectful in patches.

“I let him off the hook a couple of times but I just wanted to give myself a chance in the last leg – I’ve got a little bit more composure and experience than Dirk had in that leg and that’s all that counted.”

Price earlier followed up Saturday’s narrow win over Matt Campbell with a high-quality 10-8 victory over Joe Cullen in the Quarter-Finals, before edging past 2018 champion James Wade 11-9 in the Semi-Finals

Wade had hit back from 2-0 down to lead 6-5 after landing a 170 checkout amid three 12-darters, but only for Price to reel off five legs in a row on his way to victory.

Van Duijvenbode’s run to a third televised final sees him qualify for November’s Grand Slam of Darts.

June’s Dutch Masters runner-up, he had battled past Haupai Puha and Gary Anderson to reach the final day of action, before surviving a missed match dart from Ryan Joyce in the penultimate leg of their Quarter-Final.

He then ended Jonny Clayton’s title defence with a superb 11-8 Semi-Final success, but saw his wait for a first televised title extended despite landing seven 180s in the final and averaging 97.7 with 52 per cent on the doubles.

“I was a bit unfortunate in the last leg and he showed his class,” admitted Van Duijvenbode. “I should have won this one.”

“It’s a bit frustrating because apart from that class, I could have won it in the end if I just composed myself better.”

Clayton had earlier claimed six of the last seven legs to defeat four-time champion Michael van Gerwen 10-7 in the Quarter-Finals.

Wade was Sunday afternoon’s other Quarter-Final winner, finishing ten doubles from 18 attempts in a clinical 10-5 win over birthday boy Michael Smith.

World Series of Darts Finals 2022 | Day Three Preview and Order of Play

The 2022 World Series of Darts Finals draws to a close in Amsterdam on Sunday as the final eight face off in a quest to be crowned champion.

Six of the eight seeded players are left standing at the AFAS Live, including a quartet of former champions, as they battle it out for the £70,000 top prize.

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

Reigning champion Jonny Clayton steps up the defence of his title with a show-down against four-time winner Michael van Gerwen in the stand-out Quarter-Final.

Clayton, semi-finalist in the Premier League, claimed his first title of the year at last month’s New South Wales Masters and defeated MVG en route to the final of the subsequent New Zealand Masters.

The Welshman boasts a rare positive head-to-head record over Van Gerwen, having won 11 of their 20 previous meetings, including ten of their last 15.

Clayton opened up in style with a 6-2 defeat of Danny Noppert and an average of 104.4, while Van Gerwen was less than impressive with his 96.8 average in dispatching Damon Heta 6-4.

Van Gerwen claimed this title on three consecutive occasions from 2015-2017 before triumphing again in 2019, and is looking to add this trophy to his Premier League, World Matchplay and Queensland Masters silverware this season.

The opening tie of the afternoon sees world number one Gerwyn Price take on Masters champion Joe Cullen.

Price, the 2020 World Series Finals champion, held his nerve to edge out Canada’s Matt Campbell in a deciding leg on Saturday night.

The 37-year-old picked up the New Zealand Masters title last month and was runner-up in the World Cup and World Matchplay earlier this summer.

Cullen may be counting his blessings to still be in the tournament, having survived a staggering eight match darts from Dave Chisnall in recovering from 5-2 down to snatch a 6-5 victory on Saturday.

The Premier League finalist, who shared two wins apiece with Price during that event, is now bidding to reach the Semi-Finals of this competition for the first time in three attempts.

Two Premier League stars go head-to-head as Michael Smith takes on James Wade in a repeat of the 2018 final.

Smith was left to rue five missed match darts on that occasion in Vienna as Wade claimed his first, and only, World Series title to date.

US Masters champion and runner-up in the World Championship and UK Open this year, ‘Bully Boy’ began his campaign here with a superb 6-4 success over Peter Wright with a 107.4 average – the highest of the tournament so far.

In contrast, Wade battled his way to a 6-4 victory over North American champion Leonard Gates with an 87.8 average and will be eyeing a vast improvement as he looks to make it eight wins from 11 against Smith.

Meanwhile, home favourite Dirk van Duijvenbode takes on Tyneside’s Ryan Joyce in what will be their first televised encounter to date.

Van Duijvenbode, twice a Players Championship event winner this season, survived a huge scare from New Zealand’s Haupai Puha in Round One, edging through in a last-leg decider, before reeling off four consecutive legs to defeat Gary Anderson 6-3.

Joyce, who came through the Tour Card Holder Qualifier last month, narrowly denied Danny Baggish 6-5 in Round One before punishing a below-par Dimitri van den Bergh to seal a dominant 6-2 win on Saturday.

He now finds himself in a first televised Quarter-Final since the 2018/19 World Championship at Alexandra Palace and will be determined to break new ground.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Quarter-Final matches to be contested over the best of 19 legs and the Semi-Finals and final best of 21.

Michael Smith sees off Peter Wright at the World Series Finals as Joyce stuns Van den Bergh

Michael Smith turned on the style to knock Peter Wright out of the 2022 World Series Finals in Amsterdam on Saturday, while Jonny Clayton and Ryan Joyce also impressed.

US Masters champion Smith, who was beaten by Wright in January’s World Championship final, averaged 107.4 in a blistering display as he sealed a 6-4 victory and a place in the Quarter-Finals.

The reigning World Champion averaged almost 103 in reply, but paid the price for missed doubles in three successive legs as Smith opened up a 4-1 lead.

Legs of 14 and 12 darts saw Wright pull back to 5-4 behind, but a 101 checkout saw Smith complete a superb display with six doubles from 11 attempts and five 180s to boot.

Meanwhile, Ryan Joyce was one of only two unseeded players to progress to Sunday’s Quarter-Finals after he overcame a struggling Dimitri van den Bergh 6-2.

The Tyneside qualifier averaged 97.5 in an assured display as he punished six missed darts at doubles from the Belgian.

Joyce will now face Dirk van Duijvenbode in the Last Eight after the home favourite dispatched Gary Anderson 6-3 in the opening match of the night.

Van Duijvenbode punished 12 missed darts at doubles from a wasteful Anderson as he reeled off four consecutive legs from 3-2 behind to claim victory.

Four-time World Series Finals winner Michael van Gerwen delighted the AFAS Live crowd with a 6-4 defeat of Damon Heta, though the Australian had hit back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 and 4-3.

The Dutchman levelled with a 14-darter, then punished missed doubles from his opponent to move 5-4 up before double nine secured the win.

Reigning champion Jonny Clayton stormed to a 6-2 victory over Danny Noppert with a 104.4 average and four maximums.

UK Open champion Noppert took out 110 to get off the mark in leg three, but finishes of 118 and 146 in successive legs – alongside a second 12-darter of the game – helped Clayton surge through.

Gerwyn Price, the 2020 champion, prevailed against Matt Campbell in a tense deciding leg after the Canadian pushed the world number one all the way.

Campbell finished 115, 76, 85 and 70 to share the opening eight legs, before breaking throw with a 101 checkout to move 5-4 ahead.

Price took out 113 to save the contest and utilised the advantage of throw in the decider to pin double ten and progress.

Price now plays Joe Cullen in the Quarter-Finals, after the Masters champion also went the distance to see off Dave Chisnall, who squandered eight match darts.

Chisnall led 2-0 and 5-2, but saw two match darts go begging in leg eight and six more in the tenth, before Cullen snatched victory in the decider with the aid of a timely maximum.

James Wade, the 2018 champion, closed out a hard-fought 6-4 success over America’s Leonard Gates, who hit back from 5-1 down to cut the gap to one leg before the left-hander got over the line.

World Series of Darts Finals 2022 | Day Two Preview and Order of Play

The top eight seeds enter the fray in Round Two of the 2022 World Series of Darts Finals in Amsterdam on Saturday.

Day One of the £300,000 non-ranking event at the AFAS Live saw a host of big names safely progress through the opening round, including four top 16 players.

Friday’s winners will now come up against one of the top eight players from this year’s World Series Order of Merit for a place in Sunday’s Quarter-Finals.

The night’s action begins with a blockbuster clash between two-time World Champion Gary Anderson and home hero Dirk van Duijvenbode.

The pair have met in both the Quarter-Finals of the World Grand Prix and World Championship in recent years, winning one apiece, and are set for another memorable tussle here.

Anderson is making his first televised appearance since his First Round exit to Daryl Gurney at the World Matchplay, and the Flying Scotsman has failed to surpass the Last 64 stage in his last six Players Championship events.

Van Duijvenbode, twice a Players Championship event winner this season, survived a huge scare from New Zealand’s Haupai Puha in Round One, edging through in a last-leg decider, and will look to delight his home crowd once again.

Reigning champion Jonny Clayton begins the defence of his title with a show-down against UK Open champion Danny Noppert.

Clayton, semi-finalist in the Premier League, claimed his first title of the year at last month’s New South Wales Masters and opens up with a formidable task against the world number ten – who landed six 180s and a 170 checkout in a 6-4 win over Simon Whitlock on Friday.

Meanwhile, Michael van Gerwen launches his quest for a fifth World Series Finals crown with a tasty tie against World Cup winner Damon Heta.

Van Gerwen claimed this title on three consecutive occasions from 2015-2017 before triumphing again in 2019, and is looking to add this trophy to his Premier League, World Matchplay and Queensland Masters silverware this season.

Heta crashed in six maximums and averaged 98.8 in a 6-3 win over Aussie compatriot Gordon Mathers on opening night and is eyeing a first Quarter-Final appearance in four attempts at the World Series Finals.

World number one Gerwyn Price, the 2020 champion, opens up with a tie against Canadian ace Matt Campbell.

Price picked up the New Zealand Masters title last month and was runner-up in the World Cup and World Matchplay earlier this summer.

Campbell, who came through the Tour Card Holder qualifiers, marked his debut with an impressive 6-3 defeat of crowd favourite Vincent van der Voort with an average of 95.5.

US Masters champion Michael Smith, the number three seed, faces a formidable opener against two-time World Champion Peter Wright.

Smith, runner-up in this event in 2018, was denied by Wright in January’s World Championship final after squandering a five sets to four lead.

Wright, who missed the World Series triple-header in Australia and New Zealand, is subsequently unseeded in this event as he bids to claim this title for the first, but began with a 6-4 win over Fallon Sherrock with a 103.5 average in Round One.

Premier League finalist Joe Cullen begins his third World Series Finals campaign with a clash against Dave Chisnall in a match which signals a repeat of January’s Masters final – in which Cullen prevailed 11-9 to claim his first televised title.

Dimitri van den Bergh, winner of two World Series events this season and runner-up in last weekend’s German Darts Open, takes on Tyneside’s Ryan Joyce – who held firm to deny Danny Baggish in a deciding leg on Friday.

World number five James Wade, the 2018 World Series Finals winner, starts out against reigning North American champion Leonard Gates – who knocked out Devon Petersen in Round One.

The action gets under way from 6pm BST, with Second Round matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.

Peter Wright defies Fallon Sherrock scare at the World Series of Darts Finals

Peter Wright held off a spirited effort from Fallon Sherrock to seal a 6-4 victory in the opening round of the 2022 World Series Finals in Amsterdam on Friday.

Wright ended the match with a 103.5 average, more than 15 points higher than his opponent, but Sherrock’s perfection on the doubles made it a close and captivating contest.

Sherrock, the recent Women’s World Matchplay champion, took out 87 and hit the bull for a 73 checkout to lead 3-2, before landing a 120 finish to level at four-all.

However, Wright kept his cool with legs of 13 and 15 darts enough to prevent a last-leg shoot-out and book his place in Round Two – where he will face Michael Smith in a repeat of January’s World Championship final.

The opening night at the AFAS Live also saw Dutch duo Danny Noppert and Dirk van Duijvenbode enjoy victories on home soil over Simon Whitlock and Haupai Puha respectively.

Noppert raised the roof with a 170 checkout in his win over Whitlock to set up a meeting with reigning champion Jonny Clayton, while Van Duijvenbode came through a last-leg decider against New Zealand’s Puha and will now face Gary Anderson.

Vincent van der Voort was unable to make it a trio of Dutch successes as he went down 6-3 to Canada’s Matt Campbell, whose next test will come against world number one Gerwyn Price.

Michael van Gerwen will begin his bid for a fifth World Series Finals title against Damon Heta – who ran out a 6-3 winner over fellow Australian Gordon Mathers with a 98.8 average and six 180s to his name.

North American champion Leonard Gates pulled off a 6-4 victory over former European Championship semi-finalist Devon Petersen, while Gates’ countryman Danny Baggish was narrowly denied in a last-leg decider by Ryan Joyce in the opening tie of the evening.

Dave Chisnall was a comfortable 6-3 winner over Jamie Hughes with a 98.3 average, three 180s and a high checkout of 155 along the way.

World Series of Darts Finals 2022 | Day One Preview and Order of Play

The 2022 World Series of Darts Finals get under way in Amsterdam on Friday as the invited players and qualifiers collide.

The World Series Finals features 24 leading players competing over three days of action at the AFAS Live, including the top eight from the World Series Order of Merit, eight invited players and a further eight Tour Card holder qualifiers.

The top eight in the World Series Order of Merit are seeded through to the Second Round on Saturday, while the other 16 players will start out in Round One on opening night.

Having missed the trio of World Series events in Australia and New Zealand, reigning World Champion Peter Wright is among the invited contingent, and starts out against Women’s World Matchplay champion Fallon Sherrock.

Wright, World Series Finals runner-up in 2015 and 2016, warmed up for this event in style by picking up a first European Tour title in five year at the German Open last weekend.

The world number two is now eyeing a first televised triumph since securing his second world title at Alexandra Palace in January, but faces a tricky opener against the Women’s Series star.

Sherrock has featured in all six World Series events this season, winning two matches, and will look to make it third time lucky against ‘Snakebite’, having been beaten 5-1 in the Group Stage of last year’s Grand Slam before narrowly going down 16-13 in an epic Quarter-Final later in the event.

Meanwhile, Dutch star Dirk van Duijvenbode looks to delight his home crowd by overcoming New Zealand’s Haupai Puha.

Van Duijvenbode has picked up two Players Championship events this season and was a quarter-finalist at the World Matchplay, while Puha notably defeated Jonny Clayton in the Queensland Darts Masters before losing out to Michael van Gerwen.

Danny Noppert, Van Duijvenbode’s World Cup team-mate earlier this summer, opens up with a tie against World Cup winner Simon Whitlock.

Noppert has enjoyed a sensational season which has seen him land a first major title at the UK Open, as well as a ProTour title and a Semi-Final run at the World Matchplay.

Australia’s Whitlock ended a ten-year wait for a televised title at the World Cup alongside Damon Heta, and he recently recorded a sixth consecutive win over MVG at the Hungarian Darts Trophy.

An all-Aussie show-down sees world number 19 Heta come up against fellow Tour Card Holder Gordon Mathers – who received the inaugural Kyle Anderson Trophy last month as the most successful Oceanic player in this year’s World Series.

Crowd favourite Vincent van der Voort is also set for a hero’s homecoming when he steps up to face Canadian star Matt Campbell.

Van der Voort is making his third consecutive appearance in the event, having defeated Joe Cullen and Nathan Aspinall in 2020 and 2021 respectively, while debutant Campbell also came through the Tour Card Holder qualifier and has reached a ProTour final in his first season on the tour.

Reigning North American champion Leonard Gates, who featured in the US Open in New York and has qualified for this year’s World Championship, takes on South African star Devon Petersen – bidding to recapture the form which led him to a European Tour title in 2020.

World number 16 Dave Chisnall, twice a semi-finalist in this event, kicks off with a clash against former Czech Open champion Jamie Hughes in what promises to be a masterclass in power scoring.

Danny Baggish, winner of two CDC events this year to ensure a return to Ally Pally in December, looks to continue his resurgence in form when he meets former ProTour event winner and World Championship quarter-finalist Ryan Joyce.

The action gets under way from 6pm BST, with First Round matches to be contested over the best of 11 legs.

Field confirmed for 2022 World Series of Darts Finals

The field of players for the 2022 World Series of Darts Finals has been confirmed ahead of September’s event in Amsterdam.

The non-ranking event will take place from September 16-18 at the AFAS Live as 24 players compete for the £70,000 top prize.

An internationally diverse line-up will see players from Europe, North America, Oceania and Africa battle it out, with eight seeds joined by eight invited players and a further eight Tour Card holder qualifiers.

The world’s top three – Gerwyn Price, Peter Wright and Michael van Gerwen – will be among the favourites for the title alongside defending champion Jonny Clayton.

Dimitri Van den Bergh is the top seed thanks to World Series event wins in Copenhagen and Amsterdam, with Michael Smith, Clayton, James Wade, Joe Cullen and Gary Anderson also seeded courtesy of finishing in the top eight on the 2022 World Series Order of Merit.

Peter Wright, who missed August’s triple-header in Australia and New Zealand for medical reasons, is one of the eight invited players and is therefore unseeded.

American duo Leonard Gates and Danny Baggish are in line for World Series Finals debuts, while Canada’s Matt Campbell and South Africa’s Devon Petersen will also feature.

Australian thrower Gordon Mathers enjoyed a run to the Semi-Finals of the Queensland Masters, as well as competing in the New South Wales Masters and New Zealand Masters.

New Zealand’s Haupai Puha has secured a World Series Finals debut, having competed in both Townsville and Wollongong last month.

Fallon Sherrock will make her second successive appearance in the competition having featured in every World Series event this year, while Dutch ace Dirk van Duijvenbode will look to thrill his home crowd.

World Cup winners Damon Heta and Simon Whitlock are also among the invitees, while UK Open champion Danny Noppert and fellow Dutchman Vincent van der Voort came through the Tour Card Holder qualifier last month.

The draw will be confirmed in due course.

Clayton coasts to glory at the 2021 World Series of Darts Finals

Jonny Clayton secured his fourth televised title of 2021 at the World Series Finals with an 11-6 victory over Dimitri van den Bergh in Amsterdam.

Clayton, who won the World Grand Prix earlier this month, as well as The Masters and Premier League earlier in the year, added to his title haul in style at the AFAS Live.

Clayton produced a remarkable comeback to edge out Welsh counterpart Gerwyn Price in the Quarter-Finals, before sweeping aside Michael van Gerwen in the Semi-Finals and prevailing in a high quality final against Van den Bergh.

“I’m enjoying every second of what I’m doing right now,” said Clayton. “I want to thank everyone who supports me and gives me the chance to do this.

“I feel brilliant, my confidence is sky high at the moment. I’m one very happy man.

“There’s no easy games, everyone in this competition is fantastic but it’s my weekend so I’m going to smile tonight.

“It was a class game in the final, fair play to Dimitri. I could not get away from him until the last quarter of the game.”

The 47-year-old averaged 101.6 in the final as he pulled clear with five consecutive legs from six apiece to clinch the £70,000 title.

Clayton had begun the day by battling back from 7-2 down to dethrone defending champion Price 10-9 with a 122 checkout in the deciding leg.

His Semi-Final win over four-time champion Van Gerwen saw ‘The Ferret’ average 101.5, defying a 170 checkout from the Dutch favourite.

Clayton opened up a 2-0 lead in the final before Van den Bergh reeled off three consecutive legs to hit the front at the first interval without missing a dart at a double.

The pair traded legs up to six apiece before Clayton finished 64 to regain the lead, and pressed it home emphatically with checkouts of 103 and 121 to make it 10-6, before sealing victory on double five in the following leg.

Van den Bergh was denied his first televised title since last year’s World Matchplay but enjoyed a fine return to form over the weekend, defeating fellow Belgian Kim Huybrechts in the Last Eight before seeing off Krzysztof Ratajski 11-8 in the Semi-Finals.

“It wasn’t the result I wanted but Jonny and I played a fantastic final, what a star he is,” said Van den Bergh.

“I felt a lot better in my game this weekend than I have in the last few weeks. I’ve sorted something out and now I feel free to enjoy my darts again.

“I want to say a massive thank you to the fans, it was a joy playing in front of this crowd. I will be back.”
