Ratajski after reaching World Matchplay Quarter-Finals with Humphries win: "I'm a better player than last year"
Krzysztof Ratajski once again made it to the Quarter-FInals of the World Matchplay with victory over Luke Humphries 11-5 with a big chance awaiting 'The Polish Eagle' who will face Callan Rydz for a spot in the semi-finals.
Speaking post match, he believes he is a lot better than last time around despite his pre-tournament form potentially not showing it.
"It was emotional for me at the end," said Ratajski. "I know Luke can play at a really high level and I'm really happy with how I played.
"The 140 was special but I had to play very well and my average was really good.
"I think today I'm a better player than last year. I'm much more consistent and I hope I can make it to the semi-finals but I must play my best darts because Callan is a young and dangerous player."
An incident occurred during the match with booing and whistling while Ratajski was throwing for doubles but he dismissed any potential needle between himself and Humphries.
"It's a part of darts now, you expect it. The crowd is always on the side of someone from here."
