As a number 26 of the world, Slavic first had a oral. Thus, he was demanded in the second round against SOUTH, who has already completed a game and had won this just with 3: 2 against Diego Portal. The Austrian set out like the fire department and showed who Mr. in the Ally is pally.
Slavic got the first two sentences and also the first two legs of the third passage. With 8: 1 in Legs, Slavic led, and there was little afterwards, as if this game lasted his last at the Darts World Cup 2022. But then Sou tar turned, the Scot took through three and four thanks to an extreme performance enhancement.
So it went in the decision set. And he became dramatic. It went back and forth, a forecast was impossible. Slavic, however, showed too many nerves, fired a total of eight match darts on double. Finally, too many, because SOUTH checked in turn 144, transformed his third Mat chart and gained the fifth-contested sentence with 6: 4.
de Sousa must fight
Sou tar now meets in the 3rd round on Jose de Sousa. The Portuguese, the number seven in the world, had to fight in his match, however. Because Jason Lowe played extremely untrained and got the first two passes with his quiet game. There was no surprise, as De Sousa, one of the best matches this year, increased and won three sentences in a row.
