Gerwyn Price had a tough start to his Grand Slam of Darts title defence facing off against Mikuru Suzuki in an absolute spectacle in Wolverhampton.

Price just got through and said that despite not performing how he can, he is glad to get through.

He also admitted that there is more pressure playing against a woman but that he knew if he played his game he’d come out on top.

“It was difficult and I didn’t perform as well as I can but I’m glad to win and that’s the main thing,” said Price. “I missed a couple of opportunities but there’s more pressure playing against a woman.

“She’s a great player and she had a couple of good shots at the right time that kept her in the game. I knew I was going to be in for a tough game but I knew that if I concentrated and hit my doubles that I could win.”
