Phil Taylor signed off his World Series of Darts campaign by reaching the final of the German Darts Masters in Dusseldorf.
The darting legend had the chance to make it a dream last event in Germany but fell to Peter Wright in the final who claimed his 11th title of the season and his 1st on the World Series tour and after the loss, Phil spoke about it being hard for him, Peter deserving to win and the fans.
“It’s been a long day for me and it was hard for me,” said Taylor. “I tried my best but Peter’s finishing was fantastic and he deserved to win.
“I’m 57 and it’s caught up with me now – I can’t do three games in one day. It’s so difficult now, like a footballer trying to compete against a younger person – you want to do it but you can’t.
“The fans were fantastic all weekend and it was very touching and heart-warming for me. I’ve loved every minute of it.”
