THE PLAYERS

KEEGAN BROWN

  • Keegan Brown is appearing at the PDC World Championship for the fifth time, his best performance being when he reached the last 16 two years ago when he defeated James Wade along the way. Last time out he lost to Wade in a deciding set in the last 32.
  • His only defeats at the PDC World Championship have come against Adrian Lewis, Peter Wright, Phil Taylor and James Wade – all major champions.
  • Although Brown hasn’t had much of an impact in the big TV tournaments this season, he has had some good runs on the stage on the Euro Tour with two semi-final appearances under his belt. He also reached the last four in a Players Championship tournament back in March.

SEIGO ASADA

  • Seigo Asada cruised to a 3-0 victory against Mickey Mansell on Wednesday afternoon, after trailing 2-1 in the opening set he dropped only two more legs in sealing a convincing win.
  • The highlight of Asada’s play against Mansell was his finishing. He was deadly at closing out legs, as shown in his very impressive checkout percentage of 69%.
  • A win here would represent his best performance at a PDC World Championship, last year he lost in a tense last set-decider against James Wade at this stage of the tournament and would have actually played Keegan Brown had he won that game.

THE PREDICTION

Japan’s Seigo Asada is likely to pose a real threat to the seeded-player Keegan Brown in this round two encounter. Asada is a quality performer who is improving all the time and will possibly be feeling less pressure than his opponent with Brown defending money from his run to the last 16 two years ago. Brown can’t be easily ruled out as his own game is on the rise, but Asada is predicted to have the edge in this match.
