Michael van Gerwen declared himself on the look-out for more trophies and produced at the huge moments to keep his World Grand Prix name.
Among Michael van Gerwens favorite things to say would bedo the perfect things at the perfect moment – and it was never more evident than at week that saw him claim his fifth Grand Prix title in eight years with a 5-2 victory over Dave Chisnall.
This season, had other things on his mind. A slightly scaled program has meant just the 12 names six down.
It appears absurd given those numbers, and a 125th PDC name at senior level on Saturday that most questioned the Dutchman coming into this week at the Citywest Hotel.
He responded in style and replied when he needed to most deep to make simply a trademark burst of brilliance or a 13-dart leg a 100 + finish. His delight was clear after lifting still another decoration when talking.
Ive a big trophy cabinet and its not complete yet, he told The Darts Show podcast at the press room following a hot embrace with Chisnall.
I love what I do and I wish to keep going.
This week, make no mistake, MVG was tested, him stopped by slipping away one leg off from tumbling out in the first round. Mervyn King compelled him to produce his best in one of the best matches while Chris Dobey directed the Citywest stage has ever seen.
And on Saturday, Chisnall had been outscoring MVG at the stakes, matching him a colour and taking five of those seven sets into a leg decider.
Michael has played under stress in this event and that is going to please him Wayne Mardle told Sky Sports Darts.
A few months back after the Matchplaythere was a proposal that Michael might have been somewhat flaky under pressure, but there was not any flakiness that week and he has obtained during that span from the end of the Premier League into now where he didnt perform greatly.
That has gone and hes being tested and hes acting under scrutiny – which is exactly what winners do.
Later, a Chizzy may return to an impressive weeks job but around also a run of championships that bring the greatest prizes in the game and the upcoming few months the focus was for Van Gerwen.
Sometimes I do not understand – perhaps I am just good in the game, he said with a mischievous smile after a chorus ofOh Happy Day.
Im quite happy as its a tricky tournament to win but what has gone well this week. My direction, my spouse, my friends have been too, everything was there for me.
You always need high perform to 100 percent because in the event you give people a finger that they will bit your hand
Dave played extremely well and had a fantastic championship, he had been in the final but I needed to generate something special I managed to, however there can only be one winner.
The Dutchman has his sights set on beating Raymond van Barnevelds haul of five world titles, and also at Alexandra Palace in December hell look to keep the Sid Waddell Trophy for the first time, just as he did here.
To use his own voice it is a standard that is phenomenal, but then again that can be Van Gerwen and when he plays he wins, as he demonstrated in Ireland this past week.
