Gary Anderson Rolls the Jackpot over for a second straight title

Gary Anderson retained his PDC World Darts title by beating Stoke On Trent’s Adrian Lewis 7-5 in a tightly fought final at the Ally Pally. Anderson had reached the final in fine form defeating James Wade and the Netherlands’  Jelle Klaason, who had earlier knocked out Phil Taylor, with Anderson only dropping one set in both games. Lewis had got past Scotland’s Peter Wright and former Champion Raymond Van Barnevelt to make the final.

The early stages were tight with it being all square after six sets at 3-3. Anderson finally broke in the seventh set which was ultimately key to the victory, he went on to hold his throw in the eight set to take a 5-3 lead. Lewis fought back to make it 6-5 but needed to find a break of throw to take it to a decider. He looked on course to do so before Anderson nailed a 170 check out which was the final blow to Lewis. Anderson went on to seal the twelfth set for a 7-5 victory to retain the title. Lewis marginally outscored Anderson on the averages and hit 19 one hundred and eighties against Anderson’s 15.Anderson was more ruthless on the doubles which proved the difference.
