Michael van Gerwen ended up claiming victory over Jim Williams on Saturday evening but admitted that in real life, he has the flu and doesn’t feel too great but a win is a win for him.

Van Gerwen said that he is capable of better; but that he as usual did the right things at the right time and didn’t make too many mistakes.

He also said about the BDO that they maybe need to improve their standard; but is just focused on his game.

‘Darting wise, I feel okay but I’ve got a bit of flu, I don’t feel really well but I got the win,’ said Van Gerwen to LiveDarts.

‘I think so yeah, I think he was too impressed to play me as I know he’s a better player than that. I think he’s capable of better, I did the right thing and didn’t make many mistakes. I think I can go further in the tournament.’

‘They want to maybe improve themselves. I don’t really care, I’ve just got to make sure I win my game no matter what.’
