Van den Bergh upbeat despite World Matchplay final defeat: "I can say that I gave everything and never gave up"

Dimitri van den Bergh lost out in his quest to retain his World Matchplay title with the Belgian ace though remaining upbeat despite the 18-9 defeat to Peter Wright.

Van den Bergh admitted that while disappointing, he can say to himself he gave it all he has and that he will be back in future.

"Every game I’ve played, I’ve dug deep and played my best but tonight Peter was just outstanding," said Van den Bergh.

"Of course it was a disappointment [to lose] but I can say that I gave everything and never gave up.

"I said to Peter that I’ll be back stronger. I’m number five in the world and I’m only 27, so I’ve got time on my side."
