Gerwyn Price beats Dirk van Duijvenbode in deciding leg to win World Series

Gerwyn Price kept his cool in the final leg against Dirk van Duijvenbode to win the World Series of Darts final in Amsterdam.

Price took a 4-2 lead after the first break in Sunday’s final, but the world number one then lost three legs in a row to his Dutch opponent to the delight of a partisan crowd.

Three overweight finishes within four legs gave Price a 9-8 lead, although Van Duijvenbode hit back with an 11-dart leg before taking a 10-9 lead and poised for his first big win.

But Price, the 2020 champion, equalized and then took the win with a 14-dart leg, pulling out 90 to seal an 11-10 win while posting a 100.14 average in the showpiece ended.

Price, who beat Joe Cullen 10-8 in the quarterfinals and James Wade 11-9 in the semifinals earlier in the day, said on, “I’m thrilled to get over the line.

“Dirk played fantastic, but I think I played a little bit better. I made it really difficult for myself. There were two or three legs where I missed doubles, I probably could have been up 7-3.

“From then on I knew it was going to be a tough fight. But I persevered until the end. I took a chance in the last leg and scraped over the line.

“I have a bit more composure and experience than Dirk in this stage and that was all that counted.” Gerwyn Price beats Dirk van Duijvenbode in deciding leg to win World Series
