Simon Whitlock will once again compete in this year’s World Cup of Darts which begins on Thursday night in Hamburg.
Whitlock spoke ahead of this and admitted that it’s a very special tournament to him.
He also said about this year and added that he thinks it’s an open tournament which they have every chance of winning.
“Every tournament is important but this one is really special to me,” said Whitlock.
“The final defeat in 2012 really hurt me but I’ve still got the chance to win it. Paul (Nicholson) and I were a strong team and the title was their for us to win but we missed our chance.
“That fuelled my hunger to win the event. It would be huge for Australian darts. I have built up a good rapport with Kyle (Anderson) and I think we are ready as a team to go and play our best darts in what I think is a very open tournament that we have every chance of winning.”
