Dutch Open preview

In this preview I will shed some light on all of the singles events, including WDDA World Championship, which will be held during the Dutch Open coming weekend. The pairs events of the men and ladies are thus not included. Please note that this preview is based on the draw as it has been done. I am aware some players have already withdrawn, like Mikuru Suzuki and some PDC tour card winners, for different reasons but since I don’t know exactly who I used the draw as guideline. I focus on the European players for those interested in the chances of the Asian players I would refer to the article written by Merel, an expert on Asian darts.

I will treat the different tournaments in the order they will be held. Therefore starting with the WDDA World Championship, which will be played on Friday. Followed by the WDDA, men and ladies singles which will be played on Saturday, however the men will only play upto and including the last 128. I will finish with the three youth events, for the boys there is a distinction made between boys under 14 and boys between 14 and 18 years of age, however boys under 14 may have entered the other boys events just like youth players could have entered the mens or ladies event.

Later this week I will post another article previewing all these events in a different manner, so make sure to follow my website, Facebook and Twitter to miss nothing.

WDDA World Championship
Update: Bernard Martens has replaced fellow Belgian Vincent d’Hondt, who had to withdraw because of personal reasons.

I’m most looking forward to the last quarter of the draw where I expect a lot of the first round game between Belgian Serge van Belle and Ricky Chilton from Wales. The winner of this awaits the winner of the match between Hungarian Jozsef Miklos and Dutch Cliff Ruiter, who are also decent dart players. Another first interesting first round match in this quarter is Dutch Arie van der Rassel against Kevin Stringer from England the winner of which may play a great quarter final against one of the people above. The first round match between Michel van Velzen from the Netherlands and Russian Ivan Zotov could offer fireworks as well. According to Merel, an expert on Asian darts, Bernard Martens has a tough first round draw as well against Kwanghee Cho from South Korea. Some other players I expect a lot from are Matt Doe, runner-up at the Dutch Open last year, and Welsh Michael Davies.

WDDA Dutch Open Singles
Of course the players who compete at the WDDA World Championship on Friday are the favourites of the WDDA Dutch Open singles. However Pascal van der Hoorn (current number 1 of the Dutch national ranking), Patrick Breekveldt (current number 4 of the Dutch national ranking) and Henk Jager (Dutch Open quarter finalist 2019) are some of the players to watch as well.

Men singles
With over 2050 players competing it is hard to preview the mens event in detail. Therefore I chose to pick some players from all over Europe who I think might do some damage and some possible interesting ties.

Sead Nicevic from Serbia was for me a surprising name at European Q-School. Nicevic had his best result in Hildesheim on day three, when he reached the last 32 while reaching the last 128 on two of the other three days. Nicevic has, however a tough draw, because if he wins his first match he has to play Wayne Warren in round two. I’m also really curious how Russian Aleksey Kadochnikov would perform. He is, in my opinion, the next Russian player to knock on the door. Dyson Parody and Justin Broton will make the trip from Gibraltar with also Icelandic Hallgrimur Egilsson and Urs Vonrufs from Switzerland amongst the participants.

Some possible interesting ties:
Last 1024:
Martin Adams – Michael Busscher

Last 512:
Jeffrey Sparidaans – Dean Winstanley
Kristiaan de Boer – Jim Williams

Last 256:
Wayne Warren – Mike de Decker
Dirk van Duijvenbode – Michael Warburton
Geert de Vos – James Hurrell
Danny Jansen – Tony Martin
Tonny Veenhof – Jim Williams

Last 128:
Danny van Trijp – Andy Baetens
Scott Mitchell – Wesley Plaisier
David Evans – Martin Adams/Michael Busscher
Arjan Konterman – Aaron Turner
Danny Jansen/Tony Martin – Paul Hogan
Wessel Nijman – Luc Peters
Urs Vonrufs – Ben Hazel

Last 64:
Tony O’Shea – Richard Veenstra
Danny van Trijp/Andy Baetens – Scott Mitchell/Wesley Plaisier
Geert de Vos/James Hurrell – Roemer Mooijman
Wessel Nijman/Luc Peters – Francis Carragher
Chris Landman – Gary Stafford
Darryl Fitton – Urs Vonrufs/Ben Hazel

Later this week I will publish a new article which might offer insights in the possible last stages of the mens singles event. So keep an eye on this website.

Ladies singles
The favourites for the ladies singles are of course the top ladies like Lisa Ashton, Deta Hedman, Aileen de Graaf, Sharon Prins, Lorraine Winstanley and Maria O’Brien. Mikuru Suzuki, Fallon Sherrock and Anastasia Dobromyslova will not be in Assen coming weekend.

However there are several local heroes who might do some damage. I’m thinking of Priscilla Steenbergen, Anca Zijlstra, Marjolein Noijens, Vanessa Zuidema and Lerena Rietbergen. Anca Zijlstra and Marjolein Noijens made it to the finals in Romania last weekend, while Lerena Rietbergen is one of the best girls players in the world.

Moreover there are some players from all over Europe who might have a good run, like the Hungarian Adrienn Vegso and Krisztina Csombok, who reached the semi finals of the Romanian International Open and last 16 of the Romanian Classic respectively, Jana Kanovska and Anna Hlavova from the Czech Republic, the young Danish Anick Sonnichsen and the experienced Katharina Vonrufs from Switzerland.

Boys singles
The boys singles are officially divided in two categories: under 14 years of age and from 14 until 18 years of age, but there seem some boys under 14 years of age who have entered the boys from 14 until 18 years of age event just like youth players could have entered the men or ladies event. Since there are so many talented boys in the Netherlands it’s hard to pick out favourites. I think Danny Jansen, Daan Bastiaansen, Pim van Bijnen, Luuk van der Kwast, Owen Roelofs, Jurjen van der Velde, Kevin Lasker, Marcel Bus, Bradly Roes are among the players from the Netherlands who have the most chances. From outside the Netherlands I expect the most from James Beeton from England and the German David Schlichting, however there are some boys from all over Europe taking part this year and probably not without a reason.

Girls singles
I think Lerena Rietbergen, Layla Brussel and Rosanne van der Velde are the favourites, however Aranka van der Waals reached the final in the last two national ranking events so she is definitely a player to watch as well.

Boys under 14 singles
I expect Tinus van Tiel, Dylan van Lierop or Massimo Balsamo will win the boys under 14 singles event. Dylan has the advantage of being in the other half of the draw than Tinus and Massimo, who might meet in the semi finals.

I'm a huge dartsfan and started dartfreakjacco.com, because in my opinion darts media are focusing to much on the highlights and well known players and countries of the darting world. Therefore I want to pay more attention to the dart players and countries throughout Europe.
