Michael van Gerwen recorded a 6-1 defeat of fellow Dutchman Danny Noppert in Saarbrucken on Saturday.
This included a 164 checkout from the World Number One but he admitted afterwards his scoring wasn’t there and he wants to perform in today’s final session.
Despite that for Van Gerwen he believes his confidence is good but he was too relaxed. He faces Alan Tabern in today’s afternoon session aiming for another title.
“My scoring wasn’t there and it didn’t feel right tonight for me, and I don’t know why.” said Van Gerwen
“I’m not really happy at all. My confidence and my feeling was good but I was too relaxed and Danny didn’t put pressure on me.
“I’ve got to get back on the practice board. I want to perform and I know can do better tomorrow.”Tags: German Darts Open 2018 | Michael van Gerwen | PDC European Tour 2018
