Lewis will certainly bounce back, he must be 23 stone now.

Had a proper panic on 167 in the leg where Gurney beat him. Couldn't buy a treble. 6 darts and still not down to a double.

It's like someone has turned his clock back five+ years. This version of him needs a miracle to take Ally Pally, starting with the draw. To which, an immediate oh dear.

And regarding all the talk a while back about van Gerwen and how he compares to Taylor, well here is a real challenge for van Gerwen in the upcoming period. From here, with many players beating him on TV, Taylor would find a way to re-establish the dominant aura of old before too long. Can van Gerwen? The solution is unlikely to be going back to how you did things a couple of years ago, with the set-up or routines or whatever. It is likely to require doing something different, something ahead of the curve.

I believe it is in his head that the problem is..
He never really worried before about players chucking the kitchen sink at him, he just went up another gear and won. Now, it appears, that he is stating to doubt himself at the doubles and set up play.
I agree, that this is a real test of his character as he is in real danger of losing his number one spot if cross or crusty lift the crown. Could be some interesting times ahead..

Lucky for him then that cross and the clown look as likely to win as I do.

Given the number of times this year he's said after a loss that he wasn't good enough on the night and that he'll come back stronger - then promptly gone to the next event and demonstrated the same weaknesses and lost to someone different - he doesn't give the impression of somebody with a solution.
