Dobey on Van den Bergh's World Matchplay triumph: "His win has definitely inspired me. It just shows that anyone can win"

Dimitri van den Bergh achieved his darting dreams winning the World Matchplay on debut and that in itself he inspired Chris Dobey in the process to also go after a maiden major title.

Dobey spoke in a recent interview and said that Van den Bergh's win was the result of hard work and similar to him having the game on the stage; as opposed to on the ProTour.

"Dimitri puts a lot of time and effort in and staying with Jo and Peter Wright during lockdown would have helped him as well," said Dobey in an interview with Darts World.

“Dimitri dedicates himself to the game, doing all the right things. It’s paid off for him. His best game is on the stage, a bit like myself.

“Once we play well on the floor as well, then we can show what we’re about. His win has definitely inspired me. I think he was 26 in the world and jumped to No.12. Nathan Aspinall did that two years ago as well. It just shows that anyone can win."

“You dedicate yourself, you get that one big win and you then can kick on with confidence. My aim is that I can do exactly the same. It’s about time I started winning something!”
