Raymond van Barneveld continued his return to form with a brilliant victory over Max Hopp in Berlin on Thursday night.
‘Barney’ spoke afterwards and admitted that while he was pleased to get the win, he didn’t end up playing his A game.
He also looked ahead to next week where he plays in a double header in Rotterdam in front of his home crowd for the final time and he hopes to bring that.
“I didn’t play my ‘A game’ tonight but of course I’m happy to get the win,” said Van Barneveld.
“When I saw Michael lost I knew I needed to win to keep my hopes of avoiding elimination alive and thankfully I did.
“I was struggling at points in that match, the 170 came at a good time for me and it felt really good.
“Next week I’m playing at home, I can’t wait. I love this game and now I’m feeling more energised and hopefully I will bring my ‘A game’ next week.”
