World Grand Prix Tips: We preview tonight’s semi-final matches
32 players came but only four remain as the World Grand Prix hurtles towards the semi-final stage this evening.
Can any of them do it? We’ve previewed their respective semi-final bouts below.
Peter Wright v Mensur Suljovic (7:15pm)
The world’s second and sixth ranked players face-off in the first semi-final – and we’re expecting a close one. Both have been ultra-consistent so far, both in terms of scoring and doubling.
In terms of game-length, it could be a long one. Both of their matches yesterday went to the wire, and they’ve looked evenly matched all week. Over 5.5 Sets is priced at 8/15.
An extended encounter should also give the chance for plenty of power scoring. Wright hit the T20 bed on 10 occasions against James Wilson, with Suljovic clocking six against Gerwyn Price.
Michael van Gerwen v Daryl Gurney (8:30pm)
Gurney is the sort of player to feed off criticism. He’ll need to up his average and maintain his checkout percentage of 75% from the last round, but he could run van Gerwen close.
Both players tend to be dangerous on the trebles. But it hasn’t quite come together for either of them on that front this week. They’ve hit just 15 combined from six matches.
