The Quarter-Final line-up has been confirmed at Players Championship 9 with the first day of the PDC Summer Series coming ever closer towards its conclusion.
Van Gerwen on the other-hand was too good for Jamie Hughes averaging 102 in a 6-1 victory and despite allowing the Tipton ace multiple chances; he didn’t take them and gave Mighty Mike one of his more comprehensive victories after a day of hard fought ties.
He will take on Danny Noppert – one of the most consistent players on the Players Championship series who defeated Stephen Bunting 6-3. Speaking of consistency, Gabriel Clemens and Krzysztof Ratajski are both through.
Clemens will take on Mensur Suljovic after defeating Steve Beaton; while Ratajski eased past Eddie Lovely to continue his run. He will face a tough test though in Dave Chisnall who averaged 104 in the performance of the round against Ricky Evans.
