Dimitri van den Bergh is through to his first ever World Championship Quarter-Final after disposing of the number 5 seed and friend Mensur Suljovic in a straight sets win. The World Youth Champion will play Rob Cross today and believes that he is not finished yet and that he is capable of making his dreams coming true come January the 1st.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Van den Bergh. “I know the qualities of Mensur and normally he’s a player that checks out every finish that he gets a chance to, and this game was totally different.
“Every chance he got he missed them – three darts, two darts, one dart. But every shot I got I seemed to check out.
“Winning 4-0 against the number five in the world, a 23-year-old dreams of things like that.”
After stating his goal was to reach the quarter-finals, Van den Bergh is now aiming even higher as he faces Rob Cross in the last eight.
“That was my goal, and it’s fantastic that I’ve got to the quarter-finals, but I’m not finished yet,” he added.
“Even though I’m playing in the quarter-finals, I’m capable, I believe and I’m a dream maker so who knows my dreams might be coming true this time.
“I’m enjoying every moment, winning this game feels weird on the one side but feels amazing on the other.”
