Was the only match I caught the majority of this morning and was the pick of the lot from today’s action.
Superb power scoring exhibited by Sherrock with 6 180’s hit as well as managing a checkout rate of approximately 41% with 2 100+ checkouts. Composed under pressure after missing several set darts if I remember correctly in Set 3 or Set 4.
Very intriguing matchup against “Gentle” Mensur this weekend.
Also if you get the chance the other match involving a female participant came down to a sudden death leg with Suzuki narrowly missing out on victory after performing wonderfully against J Richardson.
