Taylor heaps praise on Sherrock: "That 170 checkout had me out of my seat"
Fallon Sherrock has continued to have the eyes of the darting world on her after further heroics at the Grand Slam of Darts and Phil Taylor is a fan of the Queen of the Palace who will return to the site of his emergence next week.
Taylor said that in particular her 170 checkout to see off Gabriel Clemens and reach the knockout stages had him out of his seat and that Steve Beaton is going to be in for a tough time at Ally Pally.
"Fallon is one hell of a player. A very humble, nice lady but a proper darts player," said Taylor to Sun Sport.
"I played her in one of those online challenge matches last year and she took me to the wire. Trust me, I'd never let anyone beat me and I'd have beaten her 10-0 if I could."
"Whoever plays Fallon at the World Championship is going to be nervous, and I don't envy them - especially in front of a crowd. Her finishing is one of the best I've seen, that 170 she hit to qualify for the knockout stage at the Grand Slam had me out of my seat."
"Only the top players can do it under such pressure. She had to win that leg or she would have been out. Takes some nerve that. She can play."
Premier League inclusion
One aspect of her recent attention has been the Premier League and Taylor agrees on the commercial aspect.
"Fallon would be a big draw, I know Barry Hearn likes picking people who sell tickets."
