Krzysztof Ratajski started his Grand Slam campaign off well seeing off Raymond van Barneveld in a 5-3 win.

Ratajski spoke afterwards and said that it was an amazing start; as well as that he said it is confidence which he can now take into today’s next group game.
“To beat such a legend of the game in Raymond is an amazing start for me,” said Ratajski, who will now play Michael Smith in Sunday’s second round of group matches .
“I held my nerve to hit the 72 to go 4-3 up and then of course to hit the winning double and now I can take that confidence into my match on Sunday.”
