Lewis sets sights after encouraging World Matchplay: “I want to maintain my form and climb as high as I can”

Adrian Lewis returned to form reaching the Quarter-Finals of the World Matchplay and after that run, he is setting his sights higher.

Lewis spoke to the PDC and wants a return towards the top ten ahead of the World Championship at the end of the year.

"I've got expectations," said Lewis. "I want to maintain my form and then try to climb up as high as I can coming into the World Championship.

"It's all about confidence. I've always said that 95% is in your head because if your head's not right you don't seem to perform. Little things can deter you from your full 100% performance. It is a mental game and you've got to be in the right place mentally.

"I'm trying to start again really, forget all the scars you've had over the years by getting beaten and put everything to the back of your mind and focus on what's upcoming really."

Lewis has worked a lot on his game and also a fitness regime during lockdown. He continued and said his throw is looking better than ever as a result.

"I've got to look at the positives and my throw is back," he added. "It feels a lot more smooth and not as jerky, which is going to play a big part for the rest of the season.

"When you're practising on your own during lockdown, you're not playing any competitions so it was always going to be tough coming straight back into it after four months off, but I've done well and I can't complain with how I played."
