Revenge or repeat? Gerwyn Price & Rob Cross to meet in second successive World Series final at Nordic Darts Masters

Gerwyn Price will face off against Rob Cross in a short while for the 2024 Nordic Darts Masters title in the final in Copenhagen, Denmark.

After breezing past Madars Razma of Friday night, Price had made similarly short work of Dimitri van den Bergh in the quarter-finals. In the semis however, the Welshman's toughest test yet came in the form of former world champion, Michael Smith, who had earlier in the tournament beaten both Paavo Myller and Nathan Aspinall.

In truth, both Price and Smith were well below their respective bests in this one. Both players were extremely wasteful with their darts at double and despite some flashes of quality and good scoring, the pair struggled to find top gear. In the end, it was Price who prevailed 7-3, despite averaging just 86.08 compared to Smith's 91.49. Alongside having the higher average, BullyBoy also hit the most maximums with 6. As the saying goes however, scoring for show doubles for dough and that proved true once again as despite Price only checking out at 26.9 percent, compared to Smith's 17.6 percent the Welshman was ruthless.

Price also reached the final of the last World Series of Darts event at the US Darts Masters 

In the final, Price will face off against Rob Cross. The pair also locked horns last time out on the World Series of Darts in the final of the US Darts Masters in New York City. On that occasion, Cross was victorious and after a wins earlier in the tournament in Copenhagen against Jeffrey De Graaf and Stephen Bunting, Cross also ended the hopes of world champion Luke Humphries in the semifinals.

Starting strongly, Cross powered his way into an early 4-1 lead. After Voltage missed darts to go 5-1 however, the momentum threatened to switch back in the favour of the world number one. Despite Humphries growing into the contest however, he could never quite restore parity and with a 14-darter in leg 11, Cross secured himself the victory and a place in the final for the second straight World Series of Darts tournament.
