Darren Webster caused another shock at this year’s World Matchplay with him dumping out World Champion, Rob Cross to move into a second successive Quarter-Final in the tournament.

Webster spoke afterwards and said that he really enjoyed to beat Rob Cross. As well he spoke about potentially breaking into the top ten calling it a chance of a lifetime.
He added about his next opponent, Mensur Suljovic that he enjoys playing him and is looking forward to facing off with him.
“I really enjoyed that win, it’s a great feeling to beat the World Champion,” said Webster, who also reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Championship.
“When you get involved in a scrap you have to dig in and win it. I know I’m good enough to beat the best players and now I’m showing it.
“I’ve got the chance of a lifetime to push into the top ten and now I want to keep winning and keep pushing my way up.
“I’m playing the best darts of my life in terms of results but I’ve still got an extra 20% of my practice game to bring to the big stage.
“I didn’t used to like playing against Mensur but I enjoy it now so I’m looking forward to getting stuck into that game.”
