Heta not paying attention to draw ahead of World Matchplay: "It's all about how you perform on the day"

Damon Heta is in the World Matchplay field once again this year with 'The Heat' an even better player this time around that many are predicting to go far.

"I wouldn't say at the top yet, I'm still getting there. I'm trying my guts out and putting everything into it. I've learnt a lot whether it's TV or ProTours, the ProTours especially mean so much as the ranking system gets you into everything," said Heta to The Darts Show podcast.

"You need to perform here (the ProTour) to be in everything to give yourself that chance and I really strive for the ProTours and everything should come along with it."

"The standard is crazy, it doesn't matter who you're playing, they're always going to step up and you just hope yourself steps up but I know what the Matchplay is about. I don't think the draw really matters, it's all about how you perform on the day."

World Cup of Darts

The 34-year-old Australian won the World Cup of Darts together with Simon Whitlock this year. "To have that now so early in my career but yet more for Simon (Whitlock) having all that heartbreak and finally getting over the line, there's probably only a short window to be part of everything like that. On this box, it's got Hendo's trophy and I'm all about crossing that out at the moment.
