Daryl Gurney lost out to Michael van Gerwen in the final of the Melbourne Darts Masters in a defeat that he would have felt hard done by due to his scoring prowess being on display throughout.

Despite that the doubling wasn’t there for ‘Superchin’ who as a result gave MVG opportunities who of course doesn’t spurn them. He spoke afterwards and said that if he’d been able to hit doubles, it would have been a different story.

Gurney took positives out of it and said that for him he’s playing well and giving himself opportunities to win titles so it shows he’s still among the elite.

“I had my chances and if I had managed to hit my double I might have been able to win tonight.

“I’m playing well and giving myself good opportunities so to make it to another final shows I am still competing at the highest level.

“There are a lot of big events coming up in the rest of the year and I hope to be lifting at least one of the big ones.”
