THE PLAYERS

VICKY PRUIM

  • Vicky Pruim earned a late call-up for the 2020 BDO Women’s World Darts Championship due to the withdrawal of Fallon Sherrock in the week leading up to the tournament. Pruim was the next highest ranked player who had not already qualified.
  • Pruim is a former World Championship semi-finalist having reached the last four on her debut in 2002. Her only other appearance was last year when she lost in the opening round.

CORRINE HAMMOND

  • Corrine Hammond is making her fifth appearance in the BDO Women’s World Championship. Her best run at the tournament was in 2017 when she progressed all the way to the final where she lost to Lisa Ashton.
  • Hammond has lost her opening match at the BDO Women’s World Championship in each of the last two years, so has not won since reaching the final here in 2017. Both times she lost to Fallon Sherrock who she was scheduled to meet again until Sherrock withdrew from the tournament.

THE PREDICTION

A late change of opponent should be of benefit to Hammond who was due to face Fallon Sherrock in R1 before her withdrawal gave Pruim an unexpected opportunity. Hammond won’t underestimate Pruim as she is a former World Championship semi-finalist but she should just have the edge to win in three sets.
