Rob Cross once again won another ProTour yesterday as the floor season is winding up with the last of the double header of Players Championship events taking place today.
The star of not only the floor season but the PDC tour this season has been ‘Voltage’ who yesterday grabbed his 4th of the year, an astonishing stat for a player who is only in his first full PDC season.
He defeated the likes of Ron Meulenkamp, Willie O’Connor and Keegan Brown on route to the final where he defeated former 2x World Champion Adrian Lewis who himself has been a winner on the floor this year and after the win he spoke about the win and how his mentality has changed along the year.
“It’s nice to come out and play the best in the world and compete, and Adrian is fantastic,” said Cross.
“Over the last eight months I’ve learned to pull through the 6-5 games that I might have lost, and that’s how this is possible.
“Winning is a good habit to get into, and the first event I won was majorly important. Instead of coming into the room and saying that I believed I could do it, I knew I could do it, and that’s the difference.
“I’ve got the hunger to win and I want everything. I don’t want to lose a leg, let alone a game, and this is a massive confidence boost for going forward.
“To do what I’ve done this year is fantastic and I’ve over-achieved from my expectations. To go to Minehead as the number one seed, if that was to happen, is an achievement and something to be proud of.
“I’ve only had three or four goes on the TV but I’m starting to feel more comfortable and fingers crossed I can get my best game out up there soon.”
