Wright no longer sees a dominant player in darts: "There are more and more players who can put pressure on"
For a long time Phil Taylor stood out well above the competition, then Michael van Gerwen took over that role for a few years. However, according to reigning world champion Peter Wright , there are currently more and more players who can reach an equivalent level.
Wright won the World Championship at the beginning of this year and immediately claimed £ 500,000. "Well, money is not important, but the best players in the world I can beat. That's what I do it for", said Wright to RTL 7.
"At the moment, however, there is no one above it," continues 'Snakebite'. "Van Gerwen has taken over the role of Taylor for a few years, but now there are more and more players who can put pressure on him, he has not been used to that for a long time. The level has risen very quickly in recent years, you also notice that in the floor tournaments. "
