Gary Anderson claimed the US Darts Masters in the early hours of the morning by defeating Rob Cross in the final.

For Anderson it’s a second TV triumph of the year after winning the UK Open and for him he is delighted and admitted there is a lot to look forward to now.

Also he lauded praise on the qualifiers saying about DJ Sayre and Dawson Murschell, two of his opponents and how they are getting better and better.

“I’m delighted,” said Anderson. “I really had to work hard today but it’s been a great event and the fans were fantastic.
“I’ve had three or four weeks off since the World Cup but I’ve played well this week and there’s lots to look forward to now.

“James played well in the semi-finals and at the start of the game I missed loads of doubles that it was killing me, but I dug in and I got there.

“It was the same against Rob in the final. Once I got level with him I wanted to do what I do – score well.”

Anderson added: “The players over here are getting better and better. I played DJ and hit one of those games where I played really well and he was still on my tail.

“Dawson stuck in against me, and he’s on the ProTour now, he’s going to learn a lot. Every year it’s getting better, which is good.”
