ANDERSON THRILLER AT THE WORLD'S
By John Lowe, Dec 28 2014 09:27AM
Gary Andersonshowed why he is many peoples favourite to win this years world championship when he came from 3 sets to 1 down to defeat Jelle Klaasen last night, this match was class throughout from both players 130 scores of 100 and more 20 maximums 14 of them going to Anderson and both players averaging over 100 per throw, 4-3 was a fair result, the 4 going to Andersons side of the score sheet but it could so easily have been Klaasen.
MVG struggled in the first set against Sasha Stein losing by 3 legs to 1 and looking like he was still on his Christmas break, the second set went to MVG 3-1 but it should have been Steins, missed doubles being the fault, Van Germen woke up in the 3rd set and started to play like the champion albeit in stops and starts, he went on to win the match by 4 sets to 1 but on this showing looks far from retaining his title.
Terry Jenkins produced a master class against Laurence Ryder winning 4-0. Peter Wright put Ronnie Huybrechts out 4-1, Robert Thornton demolished Ronnie Baxter 4-0, but the shock of the days play was the defeat of Dave Chisnall by Benito Van de Pas by 4 sets to 2, when Chisnall won the first set 3-0 he must have thought it was going to be a piece of cake, Wrong, Benito leveled the match at 1-1, Chisnall kicked in again and won the 3rd 3-0, back came Benito to level the match once more 2-2, but he did not let up this time taking the 5th set 3-1, Chisnall knew he was in trouble and opened the 6th set with a maximum and raced into a 2-0 lead, Van de Pas comes back again hitting double 20 to rob Chisnall of the leg, follows with a 77 outshot to level at 2-2 then lands double 8 to complete a famous victory and for Chisnall a miserable end to 2014.
