Krzysztof Ratajski claimed a fifth PDC ranking title in only 18 months on Saturday defeating Dimitri van den Bergh to win Players Championship 21.

Ratajski spoke afterwards and said he was really happy to win the title in the end.

He was behind for a lot of the final but got back on level terms and he added that when it got to 7-7 he said to himself he must win it.

“I’m very happy,” said Ratajski. “It was very tight and it was really, really hard.

“I played my semi-final against Danny Noppert and I had never beaten him, but today I played almost a 104 average and it was superb.

“In the final with Dimitri, I’ve also lost with him many times, and I thought about it. When I was 7-7, I said to myself that I must win. It’s a very important result for me.”
