Coincidence? Adrian Lewis withdrew after qualifying for both the 1st and the 100th European Tour events

A one-time European Tour event winner at the German Darts Masters in 2012, Adrian Lewis had looked set to return at the International Darts Open last weekend after successfully coming through the qualifying phase only to withdraw, just as he withdrew eleven years ago from the first ever Euro Tour event.

At the peak of his powers back in 2012, Lewis was fresh off the back of becoming the reigning two-time back-to-back world champion and as such didn't need to go through the qualification process to gain entry to the 2012 Austrian Darts Open. Nevertheless, both he and top seed Phil Taylor withdrew from the inaugural European Tour event which was won by Justin Pipe.

This time around Lewis was one of three players to pull out from the 100th European Tour event at the International Darts Open in Riesa, along with Luke Humphries and Sebastian Bialecki, being replaced by Raymond van Barneveld, Scott Williams and Mike De Decker.
