THE PLAYERS

VINCENT VAN DER VOORT

  • Vincent van der Voort last featured at the Grand Prix in 2015 when he had his best run in the tournament which included a win against Phil Taylor in round one on his way to reaching the quarter-finals.
  • That quarter-final appearance at the 2015 World Grand Prix was the last time he made it through to the last eight in a PDC major ranking tournament.
  • The big Dutchman showed some good form on the Euro Tour recently when he reached the semi-finals of the Austrian Darts Championship in early September.

NATHAN ASPINALL

  • 2019 UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall is making his World Grand Prix debut after a meteoric rise up the rankings over the last year which was helped by his run to the semi-finals at the World Championship.
  • ‘The Asp’ followed up his UK Open triumph with a victory in the US Darts Masters World Series tournament in early July where he defeated Rob Cross, Peter Wright and Michael Smith in consecutive matches.
  • Aspinall comes into the tournament on the back of some good performances on the Euro Tour last weekend where he defeated both Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright on his way to the semi-finals.

THE PREDICTION

Nathan Aspinall has proven himself to be a force to be reckoned with over the last year with a string of impressive big-stage performances which includes his maiden major tournament triumph at the UK Open in March and although he exited the World Matchplay early on, he played well in defeat. Van der Voort will not be a pushover; he hasn’t played in this tournament for a few years but does have a win against Phil Taylor at the World Grand Prix on his record. It won’t be easy but the UK Open champion is tipped to pass this test.
