Peter Wright once again fell at the final hurdle in a major final to Michael van Gerwen. The colourful Scot played well despite the loss but faded in the final few legs which allowed ‘Mighty Mike’ a third straight win at the Wolves Civic which wasn’t popular with the legions of Snakebite fans at the event. He spoke afterwards and despondently said that he wasn’t good enough but that he could take positives from his run to the final.
“I had my chance and didn’t take it, and that’s why he is number one in the world.
“Neither of us played our top game in the final and I was struggling throughout the match, but the best player won on the day.
“I had plenty of chances and didn’t play well in the final. I struggled through the whole game, I wasn’t good enough and I’m disappointed with the way I played – but I got to the final.
“I played some really nice games this week, and I can take positives from this.”
