Simon Whitlock pulled off one of the results of the second round smashing Alan Norris 10-0 who despite not playing that badly could not hit a double and it meant that Whitlock easily romped home to a Quarter-Final spot and a date on Sunday with Michael van Gerwen who smashed Ian White 10-1, Whitlock spoke afterwards and admits the score was a bit flattering to him but followed it up by talking about his win over James Richardson and how he wanted to perform better as a result and he did to devastating effect.
“The scoreline’s a bit flattering but Alan missed his chances and I took mine,” said Whitlock, who averaged 96 and finished ten doubles from 21 attempts.
“I wasn’t too happy with how I played against James Richardson in the first round so I wanted to perform better today. Alan wasn’t himself and it was quite a comfortable win in the end.”
