Mardle calls for changes to Grand Slam of Darts format

Wayne Mardle has argued on Twitter for a change to the format of the Grand Slam of Darts. The current one disadvantages those who play in the second semi-final.

This meant that for Peter Wright, he wasn't at his best against Gerwyn Price on Sunday evening. He said he was 'knackered' which was not surprising given he'd played his semi-final at the end of the afternoon on Sunday.

Price played against James Wade earlier in the afternoon and hence was fresher against Wright winning 16-8. Mardle spoke about scheduling all the Quarter-Finals in one day.

To make that possible, he advocates reducing the format of the Quarter-Finals to best of 21 legs. The semi-finals as a result would be played on the second Saturday, followed by the final on the Sunday only.
