Rob Cross looking like winning this tournament averaging over 100 for it. If he does will more people actually start talking about him winning the majors this year as it seems he has been overlooked by quite a few despite being world champ and IMO being the one most likely to be battling with MvG in the majority of major finals this year.

Some great games to finish out the tournament, and what a classy 164 to end it from Anderson. I was really enjoying watching Cross play and finish, reminded me of the Worlds, but just went flat at the end as Gary ramped it up.

GARY ANDERSON claimed his sixth World Series of Darts title with a superb 8-4 comeback win over Rob Cross in the William Hill US Darts Masters final on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort.

Two-time World Champion Anderson showed his class with a series of gritty performances as he took the £20,000 title and continued his global success with a first win in Las Vegas.

Anderson followed up his brilliant first round win over DJ Sayre by ending the hopes of Canadian youngster Dawson Murschell with an 8-5 quarter-final win, after trailing 3-2 early on.

He was also made to work hard in the semi-finals, avoiding defeat by the width of a wire against James Wade before prevailing in a deciding leg.

Wade led 6-2 before Anderson hit back to level, and the left-hander then moved 7-6 up only to miss double ten for a 140 checkout and victory, before the Scot levelled and took out 75 to snatch the win.

World Champion Cross made the early running in the final by taking a 3-0 lead, and also held a 4-1 advantage.

Anderson, though, punished missed doubles from his rival as he levelled in a run of seven legs as he stormed to victory, sealing the title with a stunning 164 checkout.

"I'm delighted," said Anderson. "I really had to work hard today but it's been a great event and the fans were fantastic.

"I've had three or four weeks off since the World Cup but I've played well this week and there's lots to look forward to now.

"James played well in the semi-finals and at the start of the game I missed loads of doubles that it was killing me, but I dug in and I got there.

"It was the same against Rob in the final. Once I got level with him I wanted to do what I do - score well."

Anderson added: "The players over here are getting better and better. I played DJ and hit one of those games where I played really well and he was still on my tail.

"Dawson stuck in against me, and he's on the ProTour now, he's going to learn a lot. Every year it's getting better, which is good."

Cross had won through to his first World Series of Darts final with impressive wins over Michael Smith and Peter Wright during Saturday's final day of action.

Smith played his part in an outstanding quarter-final, sharing the opening 12 legs before Cross pulled clear to win 8-6, with the pair landing seven maximums apiece.

Cross then overcame Peter Wright 8-3 in the semi-finals, but was denied the title by Anderson's amazing fightback.

"It was an amazing tournament," said Cross. "I felt great coming out this week and I played some good stuff. I missed a few shots in the final and I was my own enemy."

Wade had produced one of his most dominant displays on the World Series stage as he ended Michael van Gerwen's title defeat with an outstanding 8-3 quarter-final victory.

Wade led 5-0 before Van Gerwen hit back, but a crucial 161 stopped the world number one's fightback in its tracks as he moved into the last four.

Wright overcame 2017 US Masters finalist Daryl Gurney 8-6 in their quarter-final tie, avenging a narrow loss to the Northern Irish ace at the same stage a year ago.

The eight PDC stars, including Friday's first round victim Gerwyn Price, will now travel to China ahead of the next World Series of Darts event, the Shanghai Darts Masters, on July 13-14.

TAHUNA IRWIN will make his big stage debut at the Auckland Darts Masters, presented by TAB & Burger King, next month after winning through Monday's first qualifier in Invercargill.

Emerging New Zealander Irwin was the winner in the first of three qualifying events being held this week to complete the field for the PDC World Series of Darts event.

Irwin, who hails from Gisborne, will now line up against the likes of world number one Michael van Gerwen and World Champion Rob Cross at the Trusts Arena from August 3-5.

The youngster was the runner-up to Bernie Smith in the 2017 DPA Oceanic Masters, falling one game short of securing a William Hill World Darts Championship debut.

However, he overcame experienced New Zealand star Warren French 6-3 in the final of Monday's knockout, having also defeated Larry McCall, Mark McGrath, Lucas Busby and Craig Ross.

Two further qualifiers will complete the 16-player field for the Auckland Darts Masters, which also includes top-ranked New Zealander Cody Harris and reigning champion Kyle Anderson, from Australia.

Tickets for the Auckland Darts Masters - which will be held from August 3-5 at the Trusts Arena - are available through www.ticketek.co.cz.

GARY ANDERSON is targeting back-to-back World Series of Darts titles at the Shanghai Darts Masters after being crowned William Hill US Darts Masters champion on Saturday.

The two-time World Champion claimed his sixth World Series title with a superb 8-4 comeback win over Rob Cross in the final at the Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort to secure a first win in Las Vegas.

Anderson will now jet off to China for the two-day tournament which gets underway on Friday and the Scotsman is eyeing more global success.

"It would be brilliant now to back this up with a win in Shanghai," said Anderson, who has enjoyed World Series victories in Dubai, Auckland, Tokyo and Perth.

I can still knock heads with the best and I'm looking forward to this week.

"It's always nice to win and I've done well this year even though I'm not getting as much practice as the other players, which means I've been a bit inconsistent at times but it's going okay.

"I've had three or four weeks off since the World Cup but I've played well in Vegas and there's lots to look forward to now."

Anderson recorded wins over American DJ Sayre and Canada's Dawson Murschell en route to victory last weekend and the world number four praised the emergence of new players worldwide.

"I think in about ten years’ time, we'll see new players coming across on the circuit from all over the world," Anderson added.

I'll be retired by then but the other boys will be up for a hard time!

"The World Cup was a tell-tale sign of how the game is growing with countries like China, Japan and Thailand, you can see every year that they're getting better and better.

"It's the same in America too and you saw that with some of the North American qualifiers last week. Every country you go to now can play darts, so it's going to be an open book."

Anderson will be hoping for another World Series triumph as he looks to build momentum heading into the BetVictor World Matchplay later this month where he will face Stephen Bunting in the opening round.

World number one Michael Van Gerwen is the red-hot favourite with BetVictor to lift a third World Matchplay title at 4/6, while Anderson is the 7/1 joint second favourite to claim a maiden Blackpool crown alongside Cross.

The BetVictor World Matchplay will be broadcast on Sky Sports from July 21-29. For tickets, call the Winter Gardens Box Office on 0844 856 1111 or buy online at pdc.seetickets.com.

Thomas Cook Sport Breaks and Hospitality Packages are also available. See www.pdc.tv/tickets for full details and ticket information.

The pair will now line up against the likes of world number one Michael van Gerwen and World Champion Rob Cross at the Trusts Arena from August 3-5 in the 16-player PDC World Series of Darts event.

McGrath will be joined in Auckland by Hurring, who will make his big stage debut at next month's showpiece event.

The Christchurch man defeated Ben Robb 6-4 in the final qualifying event, having seen off experienced New Zealand stars Rob Szabo and Warren French in the previous two rounds.

The 16-player field for the Auckland Darts Masters is now complete and includes top-ranked New Zealander Cody Harris and reigning champion Kyle Anderson, from Australia.

XIAOCHEN ZONG, Yuanjun Liu, Chengan Liu and Lihao Wen have qualified for the 21.co.uk Shanghai Darts Masters to complete the field for the PDC World Series of Darts event.

The quartet came through Thursday's qualifiers in Shanghai to secure their places against eight of the sport's top stars at the Pullman Hotel Shanghai South.

GARY ANDERSON will begin his quest for back-to-back PDC World Series of Darts titles against Royden Lam at the 21.co.uk Shanghai Darts Masters on Friday.

The event will see eight Asian representatives taking on eight top stars of the sport over two days at the Pullman Hotel Shanghai South.

Last weekend's US Darts Masters champion Anderson will meet Hong Kong star Lam - the current PDC Asian Tour number one - in an exciting first round fixture.

Reigning champion Michael van Gerwen, who claimed last year's title by defeating Dave Chisnall in the final, will take Lihao Wen, one of the Chinese qualifiers who secure their place on Thursday.

World Champion Rob Cross, the second seed based on the World Series of Darts rankings, plays Chinese qualifier Chengan Liu, while world number two Peter Wright faces Japanese World Cup of Darts star Seigo Asada.

Last year's semi-finalist James Wade has drawn Hailong Chen, with World Grand Prix champion Daryl Gurney set to meet Filipino Lourence Ilagan, a double winner on the 2018 PDC Asian Tour.

The opening match will see Gerwyn Price clash with Yuanjun Liu, and Michael Smith plays Chinese World Cup of Darts ace Xiaochen Zong.

The eight Asian Representatives will come up against the eight PDC stars in Friday's first round of the 21.co.uk Shanghai Darts Masters, which concludes on Saturday with the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

The Asian representatives were picked from the Asian Tour Order of Merit. Lim is only 23rd, so he wasn't even close.

Why wasnt he picked by the PDC? He's much better than any asian player there.


The Asian representatives were picked from the Asian Tour Order of Merit. Lim is only 23rd, so he wasn't even close.

Ah I see, he had a fair chance of making it then.
