Sunday night is the conclusion of the World Series of Darts Finals at the AFAS Live in Amsterdam. Four men are still in the race for the title and they will decide in the semi-finals and the subsequent final who will run away with the overall victory.
Of the four semifinalists, Michael van Gerwen is the only player who has won the tournament before. 'Mighty Mike' was the best in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019. So his last title at the World Series Finals was some time ago. After hard-fought victories over William O'Connor (6-4) and Dimitri van den Bergh (10-8), Luke Humphries is the opponent in the last four. The Englishman won in his two previous matches over Krzysztof Ratajski (6-3) and Rob Cross (10-2).
The other semifinal will be between Nathan Aspinall and Peter Wright. Aspinall eliminated Danny Noppert (6-3) and Keegan Brown (10-5), while Wright beat Haupai Puha (6-4) and Raymond van Barneveld (10-6). Incidentally, Wright did reach the final of the World Series Finals in 2015 and 2016, but faced Van Gerwen each time.
