Michael van Gerwen capped off another great weekend by winning yet another TV title and this time it was a third successive one in the form of the World Series of Darts Finals in Glasgow. He defeated home favourite Gary Anderson 11-6 in the final and spoke afterwards about his joy of winning another title but also spoke about his opponent and how he has to play to his best to get a result.

“I’m really glad that I won this trophy again,” said Van Gerwen. “Gary always makes you work hard and you know what you’re going to get from him.

“Winning the first leg, when he missed three darts at a double, gave me confidence from the beginning and from there my finishing and scoring power was there at the right moments.”

“Every tournament is special and this is fantastic,” he added. “Around this period you want to perform close to your best and I want to win every tournament.

“I have that extra gear when I have to and you always have to believe in yourself. I always want to perform and you always need to be hungry, otherwise you can’t win.”
