After winning last weekend to the Darts Championship in Vienna, mensur Suljovic is dreaming.
Suljovic became the British participant to win a PDC title on home turf on Sunday, recovering from 6-3 to defeat world No 1 Michael van Gerwen at a pulsating finale.
‘The Gentle’ had won only four of his past 17 meetings against the Dutchman, but claim his first title of 2019 and he registered his first victory over MVG at a final to scoop the 25,000 top prize.
Suljovic also becomes only the sixth player in PDC background to have won more or three European Tour titles and the prior Champions League of Darts winner insisted that it was the biggest win of his lifetime.
“It is the very first time that I’ve ever won a match on stage in Vienna and I won the event – it’s absolutely amazing,” explained Suljovic.
“Michael is the No 1, however in the four-week holiday I have practised daily and I was hungry. To win a European Tour event in my town is astonishing, my greatest triumph.”
Although the entire world No 9 has his sights set on the World Championship him moves into the cusp of reclaiming a place in the world’s top eight.
The 47-year-old has never gone beyond the third round in 11 past Alexandra Palace appearances, but he thinks he can contend for the biggest honor on earth darts following his latest triumph.
“This is absolutely the biggest moment in my career, I am so happy,” said Suljovic.
“Following this triumph is the first time that I have thought perhaps I might be a world champion.
“There has been pressure to play nicely in Vienna in front of the best audience in the world.
“They gave me a push each time. After I was 6-3 down at the last, the crowd pushed me to come back and win the game.”
Suljovic will plan to make it European Tour names as he attributes in this weekend’s European Darts Matchplay in Mannheim, although his big mission is following month’s World Grand Prix.
It’s not long to wait until darts is back to Sky Sports, the World Grand Prix gets underway Sunday, October 6 at Dublin’s Citywest Arena October 12 and seven days of coverage continues until the closing on Saturday.
