Phil Taylor claimed his 11th World Grand Prix title after destroying rising star Dave Chisnall 6-0 in Dublin last night.
World number one Taylor claimed 18 of the 20 legs played and at one point it seemed as if the 16-time world champion would win the match without dropping a single leg but Chisnall – who had surprised defending champion Michael van Gerwen in the semi-final – finally ended the onslaught in the first leg of the sixth set.
“I feel sorry for Dave, I really do,” refelected Taylor afterwards. “It’s his first major final. He’s going to be the ‘the kid’ in a few years’ time.”
