Van der Voort v Hamilton: Hammer to knock out Lightening

His fragile temperament will be tested to its limits here

Andy Hamilton came through one of the matches of the first round to book his place in the last 32 of the World Championships. The Hammer defeated Antonio Alcinas 3-2 as both players averaged in the high nineties and took out big finishes in a match that was impossible to call until the final double was nailed.

His reward is a match against Dutchman Vincent van der Voort, who also came through in a final set decider as he beat Mark Hylton 3-2, hitting a staggering 11 maximums throughout the match.

It was a result slightly out of sorts for the man they call The Fastest Player in the World as he has self-admittedly been struggling for form of late. His fragile temperament will be tested to its limits here, against a player who can be very deliberate and animated in his matches.

The Hammer will be hoping that he can once again, as he did in the first round, turn the match into a battle, as that is when he produces his very best darts and also when his opponent is at his weakest. When the Dutchman gets into a rhythm he can rattle off a few legs in the blink of an eye, but, conversely, when under pressure, he can crumble.

In-play betting traders should have a field day on this match as momentum will likely shift from player to player throughout. That should play into Hamilton’s hands and the 4/5 Sky Bet are offering on him progressing looks worth having on side, as does the 4/7 that there are more than 5.5 sets in the match.
