Greaves on previous struggles with dartitis ahead of Lakeside: "I think I've only just came out of it, it's been hard"

Beau Greaves has been continuing her winning form on the WDF circuit sealing back-to-back titles at the Isle of Man Darts Festival and begins Lakeside as one of the top favourites.

Greaves spoke after that Isle of Man triumph to the Weekly Dartscast and believes she is better than her 2020 debut at the Indigo when she reached the semi-finals but is putting the prestige of the Lakeside to the back of her mind and treating it like any other tournament.

"I think I'm a much better player than I was back then and obviously going into this year's, I'll know what it's like and I'm excited," said Greaves to Weekly Dartscast.

"I played my Youth World Masters at Lakeside years ago, I think I lost but I enjoyed being there. I know a lot of people love being at the Lakeside, to me it's just another venue. I am excited though and hopefully it'll be a good week."

"I'm sure there will be a few shocks and with 24 ladies in now, there's a lot more to see. It's going to be a good comp."

But one battle that the 18-year-old seems to have won is with dartitis with much of the talk of the highly touted player being about issues with her throw since lockdown and she opened up on her struggles.

"I played in the PDC Women's Series on the stream and lost and came off the board and said to my dad something's not right, I just can't let go of them right. A few months went by and I was practicing one night and it just happened. It was just a split second when I held onto the dart and that carried on for about a year and a half and came out of lockdown and it weren't any better.

"I think I've only just came out of it. It's been hard. I never gave up on it though, I never thought this is going to be an end and I think that's why I got rid of it."
