 Fallon Sherrock
Topic Originator: Pars_1986  
Date:   Sat 21 Dec 22:17

Flying the flag for womens darts shes through to the next round knocking out the 11th seed. I personally don't see why they play separately anyway as it's not a sport where contact is made or that. Yes there is a bit of shouting and fist pumping but it's an equal playing field for males and females

Yeah big darts fan here and was well chuffed for her... Saw her play a few years back in Edinburgh and she has improved loads.

No physical advantage being a bloke in darts... only difference is that these boys have the advantage of playing in front of crowds like that in big important games loads, whereas fallon won't have that experience
Would love her to win in the next round as well

That's my point mate why not give women the same chance as the men. The prize money the men get is a big advantage where they can take it up full time and devote every hour of the day to home in there talents. Fallon is prof that if they get the chance on the mens stage women can hold there own. Imaging how good they could get if giving the chance to be able to practice and have it as a full time job like the guys

One very good reason why the women could struggle against the men.

Well done to her-finishing was outstanding.She has been playing on the men's development tour this year without much success but has obviously improved.The top women are full-time darts players but probably make most of their money from exhibitions.Can't see her getting past Dobey over the longer format-he will outscore her but hopefully she gives him a game.

Women can play on the PDC tour by going to qualifying school it's just none of them have ever got through. Sherrock and Ashton tried last year and will no doubt try again in January.Anastasia Dobromyslova was given an invitational tour card back in 2009.She left to go back to the women's game as she made more at the top end of that than going out early in the men's game


There's a young girl called Beau Greaves who has qualified for the ladies World Champs in January and is actually the 6th seed.She is only 15 and hit a 9 darter earlier this year so will be worth watching her.This year's women's will probably be best ever standard wise.On the men's side 13 year old Leighton Bennett qualified and is already in BDO top 20-won't be long before we see him in PDC.

Noticed some bookies have odds 4-1 for a Fallon win. That's quite tempting.

If dobey is foolish enough to think he will smash her then he better be careful. Averages so far in the tournament have been nothing special and Fallon knows how to see out a game under pressure. I reckon she may still have more in the tank and she could see of dobey 4-2. I think dobey will fall apart when the crowd are against him.

Suljovic had crumbled before the game even started.He tried to completely change his style and throw faster, presumably to minimise the boos. If you are changing your action on the World Champ stage you are asking for trouble. Dobey averaged over 96 in his first game which is 6 points more than Sherrock,was in the last 16 last year and is on the way up.Hope Sherrock can take a set at least.Her finishing was outstanding and kudos to her if she can maintain that but harder over longer format and I can't see it. I'll go 4-1 Dobey.

Good win for Anderson there-looks to be playing injury free now.

The standard has been the best of the tournament today and some great matches going to deciders.Lewis showed signs of coming back to better form earlier in a 4-3 win. Ze Waan averaged over 106 beating Chisnall who averaged 101.75 and Anderson coming from behind with a 100 average.

Once Dobey started hitting his doubles there was only one winner.He won 9 of the last 10 legs to take 3 sets in a row and was 11 points higher on the averages. Fair play to Sherrock, she's had a great tournament and the way she started the match I thought she was in with a chance but she faded and Dobey settled down.

Yep fell well short in the last 2 sets. Anyone could see that. 10 behind on the 3 dart average as well. Very very difficult when your scoring so much less to compete.

Talking of falling well short our own big John Henderson just got caned 4-0 by Price. The Iceman is surely in with a fine chance of being champion on that form.

problem for Henderson is that it’s hot up on the oche. He faded badly and was sweating buckets in the last 2 sets when he looked like he’d rather be sitting down anywhere but on that stage.

He did well to get through a few rounds though but to unfit for the longer format on the big stage. Surprised he was seeded top 30, thought a lot of these older faces were disappearing from the game with all the young guns coming through? And hendo was never exactly a top 20 players.

It’s mvg or price for me, hopefully not price as his over celebrating and gamesmanship in the past leaves a sour taste.

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!

A mamoth 25/1 Price was with Bet Victor the week before the Grand Slam to win the Worlds then into 7/1 after he beat MVG.

Wright always flatters to decieve, much like Michael Smith, stats all look great and can be in red hot form then the big mental block comes when they eventually come up against MVG and he totally sh!ts the bed and bottles it. Should be a cracking semi final tomorrow !

It all started on stage tonight after wright won the first set then it was ready to blow up from there. But I'm sure price set it up in the pre match with comments about wright not having a chance etc. If MVG plays like he is just now wright has more than enuff to win I think

Problem with MVG as far as Wright goes is that if Wright turns up with his A game then MVG will be inspired by that and then finds another gear.

Good stuff to see a different winner and one of the old brigade come through particularly as he's Scottish and has bottled it a few times. Hopefully he goes on to keep winning and getting the better of Price. Gutted that Anderson seems to fallen so far from grace in recent years, injury etc seems to have taken its toll and he talks about not practicing so much now etc so the hunger has gone.

On the original topic, Sherrock has become the person to try and build the PDC up this year in their search for something new to get the punter through the door. She'll really need to improve to have any impact at all but it will be some roller coaster year for her now!

BDO moved venue and only sold 15% of the tickets for the tournament so have let players know the prize money will be much reduced. Anything with any aims of playing darts for a living might as well jump ship now. Expect another takeover attempt by the PDC soonand moves made to effectively make the DBO redundant....

This was the first year in 6 that Anderson hasn't reached the quarters at least.He still reached the 4th round despite only recently having back surgery and he won the World Cup in June with Wright.He's still in the top 5 players around imo. Even when he was winning titles he wasn't big on practice..There was talk that he hit back to back 9 darters in the practice room at the Worlds.

Sherrock probably won't get through Q-school again.Over the 3 days last year her best was getting to the last 128.She finished 205th overall on last years Challenge Tour(tour beneath the main tour).Hearn will use her as a cash cow for now though.I see she has been invited to all the World Series events and one of the Premier League nights-some of the males must be sick at that.I'm all for equality but you have to earn it-she is only the 4th best woman in the world.

It was good to see Wright winning-he was the best player throughout the tournament-although he did face a dart to go out in his first game.The signs were there though he set a world record average of 123.5 a couple of months ago.

Hearn has said he is willing to help the BDO as he sees the 'amateur game' as important!

Hearn will have seen the $$$ spinning before his eyes as soon as the winning double went in against Evetts and you can guarantee he will squeeze every penny out of the added exposure it's generated.

Hope the lady gets just as much out of it financially as she can and drags out the purple patch as long as is possible.

Read earlier she is due to face Luca Toni (yes the ex Italy international, Fiorentina & Bayern Munich centre forward) in a tournament in the near future. Surreal !!

Lisa Ashton got through a field of 506 to get to the last 4 of Q school yesterday.She was one leg away from being the first woman to qualify by right to play on the men's tour losing 5-4.She is still in with a really good chance of making it though as she got to the last 32 the day before and sits 3rd overall in the Q school order of merit. Sherrock went out first round yesterday and was last 64 on day one.
