"I'll play darts until I'm 100, but it remains to be seen where and with whom" - Kim Huybrechts questions future

For Kim Huybrechts, the UK Open ended in a big disappointment. The 38-year-old Belgian went down 10-6 in his opening match against Keane Barry.

Huybrechts already had a turbulent run-up to the UK Open. Early last week the news came out that he had been fined by the PDC after a complaint from fellow Belgian darters, Mike De Decker and Dimitri van den Bergh. Moreover, a video surfaced in which Huybrechts had a fight with De Decker.

At the UK Open, Huybrechts never got into the right rhythm against Barry. "It wasn't good enough," he told VTM 2. "It's very simple, there's not much more to say. I'm disappointed, but somewhere it was to be expected - this is in line with the season so far."

Huybrechts especially wants to unwind now. "I have to give it all a place for a while. I just told my brother Ronny: 'I don't feel like it anymore, with all this stuff.' I have to move on, also for my family, but the sense is sometimes far away."

'The Hurricane' therefore doubts his future. "I will continue playing darts until I'm 100, but it remains to be seen where and with whom. It's a down period, with too much focus on other things. That has to change soon. Then things will work out."
