Van Barneveld after winning first PDC ranking title since 2013 at Super Series: “I had the focus I never had for the last two or three years”
Van Barneveld claimed this title only three days into his comeback after winning back his Tour Card at Q-School last week.
"I can't express how happy I am. Today it all went right, I had the focus I never had for the last two or three years," said Van Barneveld post match.
"I was an amateur last week and one week later I'm winning a ProTour, that's what you can do if you believe in yourself.
"I was so focused on winning that Tour Card, then I came here to the Super Series and I thought 'wow, this is another level' and I asked myself 'can I do this again?'
"Yes, of course I can if I believe. It's all about belief. I have to thank my management team who are making sure I practice every single day, which I've never done before in my life.
"When I came here I thought 'this is my place, Bolton has been good to me.
"Joe played amazing in the final, he is a class player and I knew I had to take my chances."
