THE PLAYERS

DETA HEDMAN

  • Deta Hedman has reached the BDO World final on three occasions but she has lost in her opening match in two of the last three years.
  • Last year Hedman lost 2-0 against Maria O’Brien in the first round and in 2017 she exited the tournament at the first hurdle against Casey Gallagher.

LAURA TURNER

  • Laura Turner is appearing at the BDO World Championship for the second time having lost to Anastasia Dobromyslova in the first round last year on her debut.
  • Turner had the edge over Hedman in their head-to-head meetings in 2019 which included a notable win in the final of the Isle of Man Open.

THE PREDICTION

Deta Hedman faces a tricky test in the opening round against Laura Turner who is the highest ranked player not to be seeded. Turner did have the edge in their head-to-head meetings in 2019, but a key factor is Hedman's superior big-stage game time which could prove the difference in this encounter.
