The next Quarter-Finalists at the German Darts Open in Saarbrucken have been confirmed with Max Hopp continuing his resurgent form and Joe Cullen who will sense a big opportunity to make the semi-final.
For ‘The Maximiser’ it wasn’t the German at his best but he didn’t need to be against Van de Pas who continues his poor run of form. Hopp as a result of this win makes it back-to-back Euro Tour quarter-finals with a 6-4 victory. He hit five 180’s along the way living up to his nickname.
In terms of Cullen, he had double trouble like Hopp did in parts of his win but he overcame it to win 6-2 and dispatch Daniel Larsson to set up that clash with the German ace in the Quarter-Finals this evening.
