THE PLAYERS

MIKURU SUZUKI

  • Defending champion Mikuru Suzuki from Japan came through the field as a qualifier in 2019 to win the world title without dropping a set.
  • Last month Suzuki came close to becoming the first woman to win a PDC World Championship match, only just losing out in a five-set thriller to James Richardson.

MARIA O’BRIEN

  • Suzuki and O’Brien met in the semi-finals at the 2019 BDO World Championship with Suzuki winning in straight sets on that occasion.
  • O’Brien’s run to the semi-finals in 2019 included impressive back-to-back straight sets victories against Deta Hedman and Fallon Sherrock.

THE PREDICTION

Suzuki will be in the spotlight as she begins the defence of the title that she won in impressive fashion last year. O’Brien was one of Suzuki’s victims in her run to glory with a 2-0 victory for the Japanese star in the semi-finals and it is likely that a similar outcome is on the cards this time.
