Price on Wright's comments after commanding Clayton win: "Peter's playing rubbish, He's won nothing really"

Gerwyn Price sailed past Jonny Clayton to begin the second round of action at the 2021 World Matchplay to send out a clear message to his rivals.

Price averaged 101 and hit 69% of his doubles in an 11-3 success over 'The Ferret' and was pleased to see his doubling in particular come good.

"Relieved at the end. Of course it was a big scoreline but I think I put Jonny under a lot of pressure after being 3-3, I started to kick into gear and started being a bit more clinical," said Price post match.

"I think he missed a lot of opportunities but I was able to clean up. I was pretty clinical in that game."

"I'm definitely back. I sort of felt my finishing game, the scoring game wasn't up to scratch but that can come. That's the easy part but checking out is the tough part."

"That part of my game was on today so they can all be feared now I think."

Comments from Wright

He also discussed comments from Peter Wright about him not having any rivals to the title and fired back a warning shot as a result.

"I'm not worried what people think as long as I believe in my own head. Peter's playing rubbish, he's gonna win the World's, he's gonna win this when he's won nothing really. I'm not worried about Peter, I'm not worried about Michael. I'm worried about myself but talk is cheap, you've just got to do it on the board."
