"The most important thing is that I get to enjoy it again" - Vincent van der Voort has clear plan to return top form

Vincent van der Voort was not present at the last World Darts Championship and has subsequently dropped down to 53rd place in the world rankings.

In truth, Van der Voort had a lousy year, in which things were difficult both professionally and privately. "I haven't thrown since the World Championship qualifier. I start again on Monday and then we'll see how things are going. I parked it all for a while and cleared my head well. I've been thinking about what I want and what the future will bring," the 48-year-old Dutchman told Sportnieuws.nl. "Of course there is always a plan, I always think about that. First, just the most important thing is that I get to enjoy it again instead of standing there dutifully."

Van der Voort previously said he would never go to Q-School again, but is now leaving that door ajar. "If I'm throwing well at the end of the year and I make it to the World Championship but just don't retain my Tour Card.... Then you can start having doubts."

"You should never definitively say no, but when I have a year like last year I'm just happy when it's over. I will really have to have tournaments this year that I feel like I can win them. Otherwise I'm just filler and I don't want that."

Van der Voort therefore does not want the same story as Devon Petersen (who even fell out of the top 100). "Then you can go to Q-School very cool, but suppose you get the Tour Card then everything starts all over again. No, I really don't see that."
