Grand Slam of Darts: Perfect Start From van Gerwen

Michael van Gerwen eased through to the last 16 of the Grand Slam of Darts with three victories as he topped his group in Wolverhampton.

The world number one, who is chasing his maiden victory in the event, enjoyed wins against Mark Oosterhuis, Kim Huybrechts and Steve West to set up a second round clash against Steve Beaton.

“I’ve been feeling great and playing well,” said van Gerwen, who succesfully defended the European Championship a little over a week ago.

“It has been a big target of mine to win this tournament and if I keep up this level then I believe it will be my year.”

‘Mighty Mike’ takes on Beaton on Thursday for a place in the quarter-finals.
