Cross opens up on period in darting doldrums after Wade win: "At one point there was a time I thought I was finished"
Cross spoke afterwards and said that he was confident but that it didn't go in patches for him despite getting the win.
"It was a weird game. It just took so long to get going and that unsettled me a bit. I was much more confident in the practice room, I walked on the stage and I was confident and then it just felt like an eternity to get started. I think that upset James (Wade) tonight in fairness and it affected the game. Three points, two nights and we go on and I'm looking forward to it," said Cross post match.
"When I got the draw, I played well to get the draw. I think it gave me a bit of confidence, I always felt like I was in control and done another job so we go again."
The former World Champion also discussed putting the work in as well as a period in the darting doldrums over the last 12 months or so and thoughts about maybe quitting the sport.
"I've put so much work in. I've probably had to spend four or five months on myself in fairness. At times last year, they believed in me more than what I believed in myself. The job isn't done, I need to work again and we need to start again."
"At one point there was a time I thought I was finished. I didn't want to quit the game, I didn't want to play the game. I'm so positive now, I walk in, I believe I can mix it with the best."
