If Fallon Sherrock and world No. 1 Gerwyn Price make it through their first-round matches at the Nordic Darts Masters on Friday, they might square off.
The World Series is back on the road after being cancelled in 2020 owing to the coronavirus pandemic, which meant the 27-year-old missed out on events in Copenhagen, New York, and Australia.
Sherrock secured her spot after making history by defeating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic at the World Darts Championship in December 2019.
In each of the previous two years, the Queen of the Palace failed to win a Tour Card at Q-School, but she competed as a Contender in the 2020 Premier League and was impressed at the inaugural Women’s Series last year.
Deta Hedman joined Lisa Ashton in denying her a return to the World Championship, but she will be back in action on a big PDC stage a year to the day after appearing in the World Series of Darts Finals.
She was defeated 6-5 by Jeff Smith on that occasion, despite holding a 5-1 lead, but she will be back in Denmark on Friday to face home favourite Niels Heinsoe at Forum Copenhagen.
Sherrock is one of eight PDC representatives who will face eight Nordic and Baltic representatives in the first World Series of Darts event of 2021, with 16 players fighting to become the first Nordic Darts Masters winner.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve been on stage,” Sherrock stated. “I’ve been looking forward to participating in World Series events since last year, and it’s wonderful to be back on stage.”
“It will be fantastic to perform in front of an audience once more.” I want to play well, and I’m hoping to win my first-round game and then take it from there.”
