Upsets galore at the 2019 PDC World Darts Championship. Following the likes of Peter Wright and Raymond van Barneveld, Mensur Suljovic has become the latest victim of an upset at the hands of Ryan Searle.
Suljovic won the first set in style as he hit an incredible amount of six 180’s in the first set, winning it 3-1.
Searle, however, hit back with a 120-finish in set two in the process of levelling up the match at 1 set apiece. Set three also went to the Englishman as Suljovic was pushed to the brink of defeat.
‘The Gentle’ did all he could in set four, but it would prove to be not enough as Searle checked out 118 to complete a memorable shock.
