Gary Anderson lost out in the final of the World Matchplay on Sunday evening to Dimitri van den Bergh in an 18-10 defeat as his quest to become a two-time champion in the tournament was not successful.
Anderson was gracious in defeat; he said that Van den Bergh deserved it. He also said that he now needs to go away and sort his game out; ahead of a bumper return for the Premier League next month.
“He played well right from the off, I just wasn’t there tonight. All credit to Dimitri, he is a lovely lad and deserves his win tonight,” said Anderson.
“I’ve got a few weeks off now to sort a few things out, I had a few issues with my grip and darts dropping low but no excuses, he deserves it,” concluded the two-time Premier League champion.
