Van den Bergh not upset by defeat after turbulent week: 'Too bad I'm losing, but I'm happy to be here'

Number one seed Dimitri van den Bergh bowed out in the first round against Ryan Joyce (6-2) at the World Series of Darts Finals in Amsterdam.

Despite this disappointment, 'The Dreammaker' was somewhat positive after his defeat. "Too bad I lose, but I am happy to be here'', he told Viaplay.

The Belgian had a tumultuous week. After suffering a panic attack during the German Darts Open last week, he suffered another panic attack after that tournament. Van den Bergh then headed to hospital for a check-up.

"To be honest: I'm proud. I went through some things (panic attacks, ed.) last week. I gave everything, but it wasn't enough. I want to thank everyone who was present in Amsterdam. I had a lot of support."

The tests at the hospital did not reveal anything special yet. "I underwent further tests at the hospital in Antwerp. The regular tests showed that everything is okay. But I need to speak to a specialist about my stomach, urine and heart. To see how this came about. So we will do further tests, then we will see. Other than that, I will keep doing my best, for myself, my family and the fans. It's nice that they support me in bad times. It will be fine'', Van den Bergh said.
