2020 German Darts Championship schedule – Sunday evening session

The final session is here of the return of the European Tour in the form of the German Darts Championship in Hildesheim with eight players left to battle for the title with every player barring two previous winners in these events.

Mervyn King is a previous European Tour winner but it is six years ago since he achieved that feat at the European Darts Grand Prix. A weekend where like Jonny Clayton in this section, his goal would have been to qualify for the World Grand Prix.

He will now have ambitions to claim the title especially after his display earlier in seeing off Michael van Gerwen, the World Number One with ease. He faces a familiar adversary next in James Wade who himself impressed with a 103.2 average and 66% on the doubles in seeing off Mensur Suljovic 6-1.

Then it is like alluded to Jonny Clayton. A previous winner at the Austrian Darts Open two years ago. He continued the shocks with a 6-3 win over Peter Wright this afternoon and next will be a resurgent Dave Chisnall who has bounced back after a poor defeat to Cody Harris last week.

He backed up a 108 average against Lukas Wenig with 102 in seeing off Premier League star and former UK Open champion, Nathan Aspinall 6-3.

Danny Noppert flanks two Quarter-Finals where one player out of each has never won a European Tour. For 'Noppie' though, he is a PDC ranking winner and will take on Daryl Gurney, the defending champion after he claimed a comeback win over Max Hopp. For 'Superchin' on the other hand edged past Glen Durrant as he looks to retain his title in Hildesheim.

Then it is the turn of the only player not to have won a PDC ranking title still involved and that is Devon Petersen. But in 'The African Warrior', there is one of the most improved players on the PDC Tour and one of the most in-form right now.

Multiple match darts away from a first title at the PDC Autumn Series, he has had to battle with last leg deciders proving to come to his aid but what better way to claim a first by winning a European Tour.

But his next opponent is one of the most formidable on the European Tour in Krzysztof Ratajski. Initially making his name in the PDC by being a qualifier in these events, 'The Polish Eagle' was a first time winner last year and showed his credentials today by easing past Joe Cullen with a 107 average. If it is Devon's time to shine he will have to stop Ratajski's charge.
