Van Gerwen eyeing the final prize

Van Gerwen eyeing the final prize”

The Dutchman will face two-time defending champion Gary Anderson in the final of the world championships in London this morning.

Scotsman Anderson, who successfully defended his title against Adrian Lewis a year ago, lost the first set but came back with a strong opener of 97 in the second set to ultimately draw level.

Van Gerwen was in a hurry to wrap up his seventh PDC major ranking tournament triumph in a row, taking out 100 to stand just a set from victory.

"He was trying to give me the trophy", he joked, 'but he's not allowed to do that and he probably won't see another darts match in his life.

Van Gerwen's consistently heavy scoring proved too much for Anderson as he raced further ahead and closed out the match with an 85 checkout, sealing the title with a bullseye.

But Van Gerwen won 12 of the next 13 legs, moving 5-2 up with a 125 finish.

This came after a follower asked Musk on social media whether there existed a future possibility of unveiling a new Roadster. New footage went viral where the said design saw a two-car crash prior to it happening, thanks to the autopilot technology.

Anderson managed to fight back to take the ninth set, but still lagging behind by three sets as the match hit 35 180s, setting a new record. "I had to bring my "A" game".

For the last four years, van Gerwen has been the single most dominant force on the Professional Darts Corporation tour, winning around the world across every format, redefining the possible in terms of scoring.

The Dutchman told Sky Sports: 'I feel absolutely over the moon. I was struggling a bit at the beginning, he put me under pressure but I am a happy man.

But three days into 2017, he now has the world crown again after defeating Anderson with a performance of supreme brilliance.
