"I was just unbeatable there to be honest" - Luke Humphries reacts to stunning win against Michael van Gerwen in German Darts Grand Prix final

Luke Humphries won the German Darts Grand Prix on Monday night. The reigning world champion spectacularly defeated Michael van Gerwen 8-1 in the final.

Humphries achieved a phenomenal level in the final, with over 112 average, 8/13 on his doubles and also a 170 finish. "I was just unbeatable there to be honest and I'm really, really proud of the way I've played this weekend. That's the level you have to be at to win nowadays," said the 29-year-old Englishman. "I felt a little bit tired against Gezzy but I kept going and that final against Michael felt effortless, it felt good."

For Humphries, it is the sixth tournament victory of his career on the European Tour, his first this year. He also won the German Darts Grand Prix in 2022. "To put in performances like that in finals is obviously really pleasing, but for me pick up another European Tour title two years on since my first is really special," he says. "The crowd have been absolutely amazing for me, it's something that I'm not used to but I really appreciate it - it meant a lot."

"I think the two best players in the world were fighting it out. I know 8-1 is a bit of a flattering score but me and Michael will have many finals in the future," Humphries added. "The way I've played this weekend is the levels you have to be to win - that's how crazy the game's got and that's how good you have to be to beat the likes of Michael. I just love playing him to be honest, he shows a lot of respect and it was a great final. That's elite sport - sometimes it's your day and today was my day."
