Turner believes latest Women's Series tournaments show strength and depth: "There is no switch-off time"

At the latest Women's Series block of action, Sky Sports Darts pundit Laura Turner defeated Beau Greaves and made her way to the final of event 7. Although she didn't win, Turner improved her standing in the race for the Women's World Matchplay.

Greaves has been nothing short of utterly dominant on the Women's Series, the fact there was four different winners at the four different events shows a growing strength in depth according to Turner. "To beat Beau, who is the in-form player, I was really pleased," Turner says to Sky Sports. "I just ran out of steam in the end against Robyn, but she played really well all weekend. I would have taken that beforehand."

"We know the averages that Beau can put in although she didn't quite find that top gear against me, but from my point of view it was all about holding my nerve," Turner continues. "She missed three darts at double in the deciding leg. She gave me a chance and I was just pleased to have taken it."

"Beau has dominated the series since she joined the tour last year, but even before that it was always Lisa Ashton and Fallon Sherrock winning, so I think it's great just to see the depth coming through," she explains. "Having four different winners and four quality winners, I think it's a testament because we are pushing and trying to compete."

Robyn Byrne, Rhian O'Sullivan and Mikuru Suzuki all prevailed alongside Greaves at the most recent Women's Series with Byrne and O'Sullivan taking their first PDC titles. "There really isn't any easy games because you know that it's such an open draw there can be some brutal matches. There is no switch-off time. You have to hit the ground running."

The race for the Women's World Matchplay is fierce and Turner who made an appearance at the Winter Gardens last year is desperate to return to Blackpool. "It's still very open so it's going to be an interesting one and it will go down to the wire," she says. "I will be practising because I want to give myself an opportunity to do well. I want to progress and I want to make the Matchplay but I also want to perform and play well so there's something I can keep taking forward."
