Inspired by Muhammad Ali and Madison Square Garden, Gary Anderson looks ahead to the New York World Series
GARY ANDERSON has vowed to “keep battling on” despite patchy form and wants glory in New York!
The Flying Scotsman has found life difficult so far this year, winning just five matches in 14 nights of the Premier League. But on the verge of the penultimate league night at the O2 in London tomorrow night (Thursday) where he faces Joe Cullen, Ando is still determined to get it right.
He said: “Darts has been a struggle this year, probably the year before as well but yeah just keep battling on. Hopefully it’ll come good one day.
“I’m still in that bubble, before darts was my life 24/7. Everything was about darts but now we’ve been locked down, I’ve come to realise it’s not all about darts. I’ve got young kids, I spend a lot of time with them.
“We’ve got the wee business we run, I’m there everyday I’m not at the darts. It’s a bit hard for the darts circuit.” But it’s not all doom and gloom for his career, Anderson still has the appetite to win trophies.
He added: “I’ve always wanted to win the Grand Slam. That was the first tournament I played in when I came across. I played it while I was in the BDO. I got so much dogs abuse, I loved it.
“When I play my game how I used to play, I win. There’s weekends I turn up and I play really well and there’s weekends I turn up and I’m absolutely awful.”
Anderson is also looking forward to his first ever trip to the glitz and glamour of New York for the World Series next month. He said: “I’m in New York for the World Series, a place I’ve never been to so I’m looking forward to that.
“Sitting watching the documentary on Muhammad Ali and Madison Square Garden so to be there where he fought, it’s something special.”
