THE PLAYERS

AILEEN DE GRAAF

  • Aileen de Graaf had to battle hard to defeat Kirsty Hutchinson in a first round match that went all the way to the fifth leg in the deciding set.
  • De Graaf fought back well after losing the opening set and held her nerve with a crucial match-winning checkout of 78 in the final leg of the encounter.
  • This is De Graaf’s sixth consecutive year in the quarter-finals at the BDO World Championships, but she has been beaten at this stage of the tournament in each of the last two years.

BEAU GREAVES

  • Debutant Beau Greaves enjoyed a comprehensive 2-0 victory against Tori Kewish in round one where she dropped only one leg against the Australian qualifier.
  • Greaves averaged 80.37, scored two 180s and allowed her opponent only two darts at doubles in the entire contest.
  • Rising star Greaves – who celebrates turning 16 on the day of this game – has a good record against her Dutch opponent and notably won when the pair met in the semi-finals at the 2019 England Open, with Greaves going on to win the title.

THE PREDICTION

World Championship debutant Beau Greaves may come into this match with less experience than her opponent but she is very capable of ousting the higher-ranked player from the tournament, such is her ability on the oche. De Graaf is a seasoned campaigner at this level but Greaves has been proving she is the real deal and she can make it a birthday to remember by reaching the semi-finals.
