Gerwyn Price claimed the Grand Slam of Darts title over the weekend but despite many fans now seeing him as the winner of the World Championship, he isn’t looking past his first game.

Price himself has a poor record at the Alexandra Palace so isn’t putting pressure on and just wants to win a game.

He added as well that his focus isn’t on it yet and that he is next thinking of the Players Championship Finals before that.

“I just want to make sure I win my first game at the Worlds because as everyone knows I don’t have the best record there,” admitted Price, who has been knocked out at the last 64 stage in four of his five World Championships.

“I just want to get through my first game in and then anything can happen, the first round is always the hardest but I’ll give it a good shot.

“My goal is to win my first game, have a decent Christmas and then enjoy being in the tournament rather than just watching it.

“But first and foremost by focus is on next week at the Players Championship Finals, hopefully I can go and have a good run in that.”
