Wade ‘buzzing’ after reaching third Grand Slam Final

James Wade is through to his third Grand Slam of Darts final after defeating Dimitri Van den Bergh in a dramatic semi-final.

Wade survived one missed match dart en route and said afterwards that he was ‘buzzing’ and that it was a feeling he hasn’t experienced in sometime.

"I'm unbelievably happy," said Wade. "I'm buzzing - I used to feel like this many years ago and I haven't felt like this for a long time.

"It hasn't happened for me at times but at the moment I'm pushing forward, and I really am happy to win. It means a lot to me.

"I was so poor to start off and I missed quite a lot of finishes. I probably should have lost that game, Dimitri was the better player, he didn't buckle or back down, but I did enough to win.

"I was beaten and then I wasn't beaten. I was making it hard for myself when it shouldn't have been that hard - I thought I out-played him for the first ten legs.

"I thought I'd blown it when I got back to 14-all and had a poor leg, but in that last leg I was so determined. Now that I'm in the final, I'm going to relax and enjoy myself."
