"I have got that monkey off my back now": Relief for Cross as six year European Tour wait ends

Rob Cross finally celebrated a maiden European Tour triumph on Sunday evening at the European Darts Grand Prix.

Cross saw off Luke Humphries 8-6 to seal it and also claim his spot at the World Cup of Darts. It is the culmination of seven previous finals lost and a six year wait.

“I’m just so glad that I’ve won a European Tour title. I’ve been striving to win one of these for six years,” said Cross.

“I have got that monkey off my back now. I’ve been playing well for a little while, so I can move forward now.

“I’m playing some of the best darts I’ve ever played. I’m also probably the happiest I’ve been in life for quite a while, and that’s really important for me. I’m in a really good place.

“I’m happy to be at the World Cup. I wanted to be there, but so did Luke, so commiserations to him. What a player he is. He’s quality.”
