Darts Myths 1: Wade is better than Whitlock

Post by bistochris » Sun Jul 21, 2019 9:17 pm

People say Wade is better than Whitlock. He isn't. He only seen as better because he's British and Sky hype him up.

The facts

Whitlock leads the head to head 22-18

Wade almost always plays in his home country. Whitlock doesn't

Both have never won a world championship

Whitlock has made 2 world finals. Wade has made zero

Whitlock has made the final of both Lakeside and the PDC World Championship

Wade is far superior to Whitlock.

James has won the Matchplay, the Grand Prix twice, the PL, European Championship and UK Open twice. That's seven Majors to Whitlock's 1 European Championship title.

Wade has also won the Champion's League of Darts, the Masters and the WSOD finals.

No contest and anyone who suggests otherwise clearly has no idea about darts, or is simply trolling. ;-)

Wade just got luckier with the draw at those events with Taylor losing and paving the way for him. Whitlock making two world finals proves that he is able to win when it matters.

If they both retired now, Wade no doubt will go down as the better of the two. Wade has 6 TV major ranking titles (Masters, PL & Championship League are questionable tournaments given the selection processes etc), Simon has one which can never be taken away from him, he really should have had more.

Both have a stack of runners-up trophies and have reached major finals in recent years, highlighting their longevity. Simon does have a better head-to-head though, at the Worlds he leads 1-0 and at the Matchplay he leads 2-1, that is the only case you can make for the Aussie.
