Christian Perez was also not yet in action this year due to visa problems. "I had heard that Cadby would make his comeback at the UK Open, which starts next Friday. But I haven't had definitive confirmation on that yet," fellow dart player Kim Huybrechts told 433 Darts.
However, there will be no such confirmation either. Meanwhile, the PDC has announced that the UK Open will be played without Cadby's presence. Perhaps the Australian will still join the PDC Tour later in March.
Huybrechts looks back on first PDC ranking title since 2015: "Cooperation with Erik Clarys is gradually bearing fruit"
Perez and Cadby skipped the first four Players Championships of the year. Vladimir Andersen, Michael Smith, Peter Wright and Michael van Gerwen were absent from Players Championships 3 and 4. "I think they all had a valid reason," Huybrechts said. "Andersen chose to play the Baltic Tour and I understand that, he has a better chance of qualifying for the World Championship there than through the Pro Tour. That Smith, Wright and Van Gerwen are taking a break is perfectly normal, they are focusing fully on the UK Open."
