MVG makes it three consecutive Masters wins in Milton Keynes

Michael van Gerwen 2017 Masters

Michael van Gerwen continued his sensational winning run as he lifted his third consecutive Masters trophy in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

The world number one has not been beaten for two-and-a-half months after defeating Gary Anderson in the final, following up his World Championship glory when he beat the Scotsman earlier this month.

Van Gerwen claimed the £60,000 Masters title with wins against Simon Whitlock, Mensur Suljovic, Adrian Lewis and then Anderson, who he averaged over 109 against in a thrilling decider.

“I feel great, it means a lot to me and every title is special,” said Van Gerwen.

“I love winning and I love what I do but it’s worth it.

“I had to perform this well because you know what Gary can do – if you give him a finger he takes a whole hand. Every time I thought I had him he came back and he always fights to the end

“Gary is a fantastic player and we always have great games. You have to throw 105-110 averages now to win and I’ve done that.

“It’s been a phenomenal weekend for me and everyone played well, it’s been a fantastic tournament. All the pressure is still on me and I want to prove that I can do it tournament after tournament, so I’m glad I’ve won again.”
