Wayne Mardle thinks Michael van Gerwen just needs to find some consistency if he is to return to his best, but it’s Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright – not world No.1 Gerwyn Price – who will be the man to beat in the second half of 2021.

Wright has been in irresistible form so far this year, ending a magnificent summer by beating Dimitri Van den Bergh 18-9 to win the World Matchplay title in Blackpool for the very first time.

The 51-year-old Scotsman continued his meteoric form by winning his fifth PDC title of 2021 in the Players’ Championship with the October World Grand Prix, the Darts Grand Slam and the upcoming World Championship at Alexandra Palace.

“Peter Wright is on absolute momentum. He’s been a constant since the Premier League, because I remember saying about Peter that unlike him it was inconsistent in this event, but since then he has worked hard on his game and he got it right, “Mardle said Air sports.

Though he cobbled together a bevy of dart setups, Wright found his rhythm, showing that age is just a number.

“A lot of people can fade when they turn 50, look at Raymond van Barneveld, look at Phil Taylor, not that he fades, but he found it difficult,” ‘Hawaii 501’ said.

“Peter doesn’t find it physically difficult or mentally tiring, but I think he’s had a real boost in recent months and it’s his wife Jo. She has now had back surgery and even though she doesn’t. is not 100%, she is getting there and I think it has given Peter a new lease of life and a new dynamism in life in general.

“We know that if you are happy in life you are also happy in any hobby, sport or job and Peter Wright right now is without a doubt the man to beat.”

Mardle also believes Dutchman Van Gerwen will return to his best level if he can find more consistency in his game.

“Mighty Mike” has yet to win a PDC title this year, with Wright having already goaded the former world No.1, predicting he won’t win a TV title in 2021.

“We’ve seen incredible darts from him in the Premier League and great darts in other events,” Mardle said. “But then he disappears and that confidence is just a little shaky right now. When things don’t go as planned or he feels 100% that his B game isn’t working.

“Right now there are a few to choose from with Gerwyn Price, Wright, Van den Bergh and Jose De Sousa all in the mix. It’s going to be tough for him.

“The Grand Prix is ​​a double start, a double finish, so you have to be cool over cool.”
