Fallon Sherrock has received a spot at the 2022/23 PDC World Darts Championship due to winning the Women's World Matchplay which has received some criticism from sections of the darting world due to not initially qualifying through the Women's Series and changing the criteria after the tournament.
But Michael Smith sees why the decision took place due to the commercial element Fallon brings and believes that it's only good for viewership and bringing more eyes to the product as well as seeing Beau Greaves as the big danger in the draw.

"I know there's a bit of controversy around it but Fallon brings excitement, tension by media, by people tuning in to watch and it's going to be a fantastic year," said Smith to Sky Sports News.
"You've got Fallon, Lisa Ashton and Beau Greaves who's probably one of the best women's darts players around at the minute so everyone's trying to avoid her in the draw. Hopefully there's a few upsets and we'll see, as long as we get the attention and everyone tunes in to watch the darts, we are all happy."
