Taylor touting potential Adams World Seniors final: "Hopefully he's in the other half"

Phil Taylor at this time of year typically would be preparing for the PDC World Darts Championship but this time it is the upcoming World Seniors in February which is taking up his preparation.

Taylor admits though that he is having to return to being dedicated again and having a proper regime.

"Because I'm not really playing well at the minute, I'm really really dedicated. I love practicing. I'm doing little and often. I'm just trying to get my body used to getting up playing a lot of darts again. I've got to get my arm conditioned and get my memory back again, it's a lot more strategy in darts. You don't realize when you're competing, you take it for granted," said Taylor to Online Darts.

But does he have nerves? Taylor said he does at the moment but will likely be fine when he takes to the oche.

"I'm nervous now when I think about it. On the day I'll have to deal with that. Whoever I draw first round, it'll be get past the first round. Everyone will be nervous as it'll be the first one but hopefully I'll be 100% ready and it won't be for the lack of trying I tell you."

Potential Adams final

A match highly touted is Taylor facing Martin Adams and he is hoping for the clash also.

"Hopefully he's in the other half, then if I do well and he does well we'll be in the final. You've got a lot of players in there though, I'd love to see John Lowe play like he used to do."

"Bob Anderson was probably the best finisher I've ever seen. Pity Jocky (Wilson) weren't alive when he was playing, he'd really light the room up."

PDC World Championship

But is he excited about the PDC World Darts Championship, Taylor said certain games will take his fancy.

"I wouldn't say excited about it, I look forward to watching certain games. I'm looking forward to watching Adrian Lewis just see how he competes because he's under a lot of pressure. Daryl Gurney, Ian White - players that have just dropped down the rankings a little bit. That's a massive World Championship."

Van Gerwen struggles

He also discussed the current state of Michael van Gerwen's game and whether he can return to his best.

"It'll be difficult. He can of course he can, he's a hell of a player. He's got a young family now, he's got other things on his mind. If he's away from home like 40 weekends, if you've got two young kids sitting at home missing them it's difficult."
