Jackpot Impresses

Early yesterday afternoon, Stoke-on-Trent star Adrian Lewis began his bid for a third Sid Waddell Trophy with a dominant 3-0 victory over Sweden’s number one Daniel Larsson.

Lewis relinquished only three legs en route to victory, averaging 93 and firing in six perfect darts midway through set two, and his reward is a second round tie against World Cup winner Damon Heta.

Despite a lean few years Lewis has impressed many within the sport with his determination and will to regain his former position.

Signs have been there this year on the Pro Tour but the former champion hasn’t had the ‘rub of the green’ in major events.

Yet, the Staffordshire man clearly enjoys being back at the seen of his most famous triumphs and is not keen to leave early.

“The first round is always tough. I have been practising really well, but I didn’t know what to expect today,” conceded Lewis, making his 18th consecutive World Championship appearance.

“I feel comfortable up here. There is something magical about this place. I love it and I am up for the fight, trust me.”

The Cazoo World Darts Championship is being broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK & Ireland, through the PDC’s worldwide broadcast partners including DAZN and Viaplay, and on PDCTV (excluding UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria & Switzerland based subscribers).
