Evans on problems playing in PDC Home Tour: "My phone camera wasn’t able to keep up with my throw, my throw is too quick for WiFi"
Ricky Evans recently took part in the PDC Home Tour however as he revealed in a recent interview, his fast playing style was a major obstacle.
Evans said that the fact no-one was in front of him saw his rhythm go and that he was too quick for his own Wi-Fi.
“My board is in a little darts room that my mum and dad made for me when I was a teenager. I had to tell my mum and dad to stay off WiFi after 6.30 pm," said Evans in an interview with DartsWorld.
“The biggest problem was that my phone camera wasn’t able to keep up with my throw, my throw is too quick for WiFi to trust me."
“Because I’m a quick player it was hard. Usually, I’m always on my tiptoes ready to throw against my opponent. It was weird having no one in front of me. It slowed me down a bit and certainly upset my rhythm.
For Evans, the Coronavirus break came at the wrong time as he was beginning to show some serious form: “I was looking forward to all the tournaments and trying to qualify for the big TV events. I’m usually away for 40 weeks a year, I was in 2019 and that was very successful for me."
“I had hit form for a few months just before the lockdown. Now it’s a weird one whether to practice hard or not.
“Last year was awesome for me, I qualified for everything apart from the Grand Slam. I was a seed for the Europeans which was great.
