Noppert and King Advance into Round 2 - World Grand Prix 2019

08 October, 2019

Winmau’s Danny Noppert and Mervyn King both sealed their spots in round 2 of the World Grand Prix following the conclusion of the opening round last night.

King came back from 1-0 down to defeat Dimitri van den Bergh 2-1 in Dublin on Sunday evening and will now face James Wade in the opening match tonight.

“Noppie” earned his spot after a 2-0 win over 2017 champion Daryl Gurney last night and will face an in-form Nathan Aspinall on Wednesday evening.

Elsewhere a red-hot Jeffery de Zwaan defeated Steve Beaton 2-0 and Simon Whitlock narrowly lost out 2-1 to Michael Smith in a barn-storming clash.

Reigning champion Michael van Gerwen’s bid to become the first World Grand Prix champion to defend the title in ten years endured a bumpy start against Jamie Hughes. The World no.1 ran out a 2-1 winner after losing the first set and will now play fellow Dutchman de Zwaan tonight.

You can watch all of the action via Sky Sports in the UK and the PDC’s worldwide broadcast partners, including DAZN and RTL7.
