Anderson impressed by crowd at Belgian Darts Open: "They were really great"

Gary Anderson is a winner on the European Tour once again. A comfortable 6-1 win on Friday over Krzysztof Ratajski was followed by a brilliant 6-2 triumph over his good friend Ryan Searle. Afterwards, Anderson praised the Belgian crowd.

“They were really great, really great,” said the former two-time world champion. “Last time I played a European Tour, you could divide the crowd I saw here by ten. When I had to show up on Friday, I was nervous. I really thought: Oh my God, I'm a bit too old for this!"

As his world ranking has begun to slide, Anderson has turned to the European Tour to try a kick start a career resurgence. "Simply, sublime the atmosphere here," continues the 2014 German Darts Championship winner, his sole European Tour success. "You know, there will always be favorites. That's the reality. But here you notice relatively little of that, they are very honest.”

Next up for the Flying Scotsman is a blockbuster third round tie with fellow former World Darts Championship winner Rob Cross.
