Fallon Sherrock

Post by ChrisW » Tue Dec 17, 2019 10:51 pm

Fallon Sherrock became the first woman to win a match at the PDC World Championship by coming back from behind to stun Ted Evetts 3-2 in London.

Sherrock was BDO World Championship runner-up in 2015, and was cheered by the crowd throughout a superb contest at Alexandra Palace.

The 25-year-old fell 2-1 behind but brushed off earlier missed doubles to keep her composure and make history.

"I have proved that we can play the men and can beat them," said Sherrock.

Sherrock, from Milton Keynes, was an outside 2,000-1 shot before the match to lift the trophy; she ended the night in joyful tears on stage after a thrilling victory over world number 77 Evetts.

She went into the tournament having claimed one of two places for female players in the 96-strong field. The other qualifier, Japan's Mikuru Suzuki, took James Richardson to a deciding leg before losing 3-2 on Sunday.

After her victory, Sherrock was top trending on social media, and was serenaded with the chant "we love your Sherrock, we do" by the fans, who cheered every treble 20 she struck. She now faces Austria's Mensur Suljovic in the second round.

"I am speechless. I don't know what to say. Thank you every one," she said. "I feel really happy because I have made something for women's darts.

"I can't believe it. To do that on the biggest stage, wow. I am so happy that I can continue it rather than go out.

"This is definitely one of the best moments I've had. I'm just so happy. I've just made history. I can't believe it. I've made a great achievement for women's darts."

Sherrock's high scoring
180: 6 140: 19 100+: 27
How the match unfolded
Sherrock, having won a leg with 106 checkout, left herself on 80 for the first set - but did not manage to leave herself a shot at a double with her final dart, allowing Evetts to take a 1-0 lead.

With the throw, she started the second set with a 13-dart leg, was on a nine-dart finish with six perfect throws but missed the seventh before taking the set with a cool 80 finish.

In the third set, Sherrock punished Evetts' miss at double eight to break twice, but a missed dart at double eight and three more at double four proved extremely costly, as Evetts took the next two legs to go 2-1 up.

But she forced a deciding set and broke Evetts in the final set and held her throw to go 2-0 up, and though Evetts pulled a leg back, Sherrock coolly finished off the contest with double 18.

Deserving of her own thread.

Posted this earlier and on Twitter but the BDO should be promoting her to the hilltops in an effort to boost ticket sales for the Indigo.

The exposure Fallon is going to get over the next few days is going to be huge, and not only in the darting community.

If Des has any sort of business acumen, he will become a media loose over the next few days, extolling the achievement of Fallon against the best players in the world, and promoting the fact that you can come and watch her at the Indigo on Saturday 4th January.

Something along the lines of " You think you had a party watching Fallon make history at Ally Pally, come and have a bigger party at the Indigo"

Not sure why BDO should be brought into this thread while she is still in the PDC WC?

The longer she is in the PDC World Championship, the bigger the opportunity for the BDO to promote her, increase their ticket sales for the Indigo, and potentially save the organisation from bankruptcy.

I think the BDO should be brought into it... Fallon is going to be interviewed all over the place.. She'll be on Radio 5, Talksport, Breakfast TV, newspapers... The fact that people can see her in her own World Championships will be mentioned and should be promoted as much as possible... Its publicity they could only have dreamed of

Refreshing to see a couple of decent women players after being subjected to turgid shit over the last few years from the likes of Hedman, Jacklin, De Graf and O'Bloke. This was not a victory for women's darts as the rest of the are still utter rubbish. Well done Fallon and unlucky Suzuki, you both did yourself proud, the other women are fekkin pony!

Fair enough, but let her finish her campaign here.
She has to still play Suljovic which will be a much higher profile match than Corinne Hammond.

One idiot on Fanatics saying it's just a Barry Hearn publicity stunt to make money. Certainly one person is getting plenty of publicity and the opportunity to make money tonight.

She is hot property now, they will all want the interviews while her status is high, interest will be lost if Mensur hammers her. So unfortunately she won’t be left alone at the moment.

I don't think it matters if she doesn't win a leg against Suljovic, all that counted was tonight.
