  4. 1 o’clock. Strong van den Berg knocks Clayton. Dimitri van den Berg knocked out defending champion Johnny Clayton from the World Grand Prix on Wednesday night. Van den Berg started hesitating and missed some chances, Clayton taking the first set. Our compatriot had to raise his level and he did. The results were better, especially the finishes: he did not miss a single arrow on a double and thus won the second set. In the third set, Van den Berg looked unbridled: With an average of 101 per throw — too high for the “double-double” format, where players are only allowed to start their leg after they’ve thrown a double — he pushed Clayton away. He finished it off with an impressive score of 153. Van den Berg needed one more set, but missed the darts in two matches in the fourth set at 2-2. Clayton kept his cool and finished the match: we got a decisive fifth set. In it, Van den Berg was the first to pass through his opponent’s court. At 1-2, Demi finished dancing neatly at 16. A win should give our compatriot confidence after a changing period in which he also had to deal with panic attacks. Van den Berg has reached the World Grand Prix quarter-finals for the first time and has already raised £25,000. In that quarter-final he had to contend with world champion Peter Wright, without a gift. .
