As well as speaking about the whistling and booing in the crowd, Rob Cross also reflected on his victory over Lisa Ashton saying that it was probably the most nervous he has been in darts.

Cross said though that despite that he thinks that now Ashton has got that first game out of the way that she will now relax on the stage.

He added that he really wants the title this week in Wolverhampton and is hoping for a great week as a result.

“I’m happy to get the win,” said Cross, the World Matchplay and European Championship winner in 2019. “It was probably the most nervous I’ve been; Lisa’s a great player and I think she’ll relax now and play the best darts she can.

“The crowd got behind her and it was nice, but it was good just to win. I want this title and I want to have a great week.”
