"I’m ready for the big tournaments coming up": Gerwyn Price looks to move on after breaking title hoodoo

Gerwyn Price managed to win the Nordic Darts Masters on Saturday night in Copenhagen. In the final of the World Series tournament, the Welshman was 8-5 too strong for Rob Cross.

It was the second consecutive week that Price and Cross faced each other in the final of a World Series tournament. The Welshman and Englishman also met last week in the final of the US Darts Masters. Then the win went 8-7 to Cross, who recovered from a 6-4 and 7-6 deficit to win 8-7.

Price once again took the lead early in the match. With two 15-darters and two 17-darters 'The Iceman' took a 4-0 lead. It still got exciting after Cross reduced the deficit to 5-4 with a 10-darter.

The lead remained with Price, however, who threw an 11-darter for 6-4. Cross then made it 6-5 before Price finally took the match with a 12-darter and a 15-darter.

“I’m chuffed to bits,'' Price said after winning the Nordic Darts Masters. ''I have been struggling to get over the winning line, but you need a bit of luck sometimes and I haven’t had much luck over the last couple of months."

“I had a little bit of luck in the semi-finals against Michael Smith who didn’t capitalise on a poor game from me, but I’m just glad to win a final and get another trophy in the bank."

For Price, it is his first final victory at an individual television tournament since the 2022 World Series Finals. So this success is a welcome boost for the Welshman, who will be absent from the Poland Darts Masters next week. Price has opted to take a week off then. In the coming weeks, the World Cup of Darts and the World Matchplay are also set. “I will push on from here. My game is in a good place, and I’m ready for the big tournaments coming up”, Price concluded.
