Last Tuesday, the women's singles tournament had started at the WDF World Cup. The event was then played through the quarter-finals. Greaves conceded only one leg in her five legs toward the final four and threw two 100+ averages.
The 19-year-old Englishwoman faced Noa-Lynn van Leuven in the semifinals on Saturday. The Dutchwoman was defeated 6-2, while Hedman narrowly won 6-5 over Kirsi Viinikainen in the other semifinal.
In the final Hedman took a 2-0 lead, but thanks to a 12-darter the damage was quickly made up by Greaves. The reigning women's world champion fell behind 3-4 moments later, but managed to turn this deficit into a 6-4 lead. After Hedman made it 5-6, Greaves finished it off with an 18-darter.
