dartsDimitri van den Berg just failed to qualify for the semi-finals at the World Grand Prix. After a real thriller, our compatriot was defeated by the Scottish world champion Peter Wright.
Dimitri van den Berg faced Peter Wright in the World Grand Prix quarter-finals. The latter began as a whirlwind of the party. Van den Berg did not shoot badly, but the evasive “snakebite” managed to win the set in a very short time: 3-0. Dancing Demi went into the dressing room with a confused face, but he wasn’t upset at all. Our compatriot showed flexibility and took the next two sets, in order to completely correct the imbalanced situation.
Perhaps the best moment of the match followed in the fourth set. With him trailing 2-0 in the legs, Van den Berg had a golden opportunity to break and get back into the group. Ending 47 seemed like a breeze, but it turns out that’s easier said than done. Van den Berg missed, thanked Wright and came by his side.
In the decisive fifth set, the “decisive leg” had to decide to win and lose – the tension takes over. Van den Bergh got three identical darts in a double 12, but each ended outside the box. Wright also seemed to have failed, but with his third arrow he was hit. Thus Wright reached the semi-finals after a real thrill, Van den Berg trailing behind. What was warm was the hug between the two afterwards – confirmation that the folds were settled.
In the semi-finals, Wright awaits a confrontation with Michael Van Gerwin, who beat Chris Dobby without much problems. In the other semi-final match, Nathan Aspinal, who defeated Martin Lookman, will face Jeroen Price, who defeated Madras Razma.
