Rob Cross has been growing in form throughout this year. Having waited since the European Championship in 2021 for a major title however, 'Voltage' is keen to secure himself more success.
"I feel more at home this year, there's no doubt about that," says Cross in conversation with Emma Paton for the Sky Sports. "The game's back, I'm starting to hit more 180s and my finishing is getting there also. I'd like my finishing to have another ten points on it but it's all positive."
After bursting onto the scene with victory in his World Darts Championship debut in 2018 and winning the World Matchplay in 2019, Cross has found top-tier success harder to come by in more recent seasons. "Maybe the last two or three years, it definitely wasn't there," he admits. "But it's just gradually got better and I believe I will get better still. Once I do that, I'll be competing and winning these things."
With a big part of the season coming up over the next few months, including the Grand Slam of Darts, the Players Championship Finals and the World Darts Championship, the 33-year-old is confident that he can once again return to the winners circle.
"Don't get me wrong I want to be competitive, I want to win every single one. Realistically, I want to win one out of the three," he says bullishly. "Why not? I've got nothing to lose. Games in a good place and I'm enjoying it again so it's definitely there."
