Gerwyn Price confident ahead of World Grand Prix first-round blockbuster with Dave Chisnall

Gerwyn Price has promisedthe only man I fear is as he prepares to begin his World Grand Prix campaign on Monday night.
The Grand Slam champion has procured four ranking titles in 2019 – the latest of which arrived on Friday at Players Championship 27 at Dublin.
Though the Welshman insists that he fears nobody, the seed takes on prior finalist Dave Chisnall at a tender tussle.
Id like to fear a good deal of players but today the only man I fear is myself, he advised the Darts Show podcast.
The only man I fear today is myself and when I turn up I know that I could win, so as long as I just focus and exercise nicely and take my game, Im not worried about Dave. Im not worried about anyone else, only myself.
Cost hasnt improved beyond the quarter-finals within his four preceding Dublin looks along with the Welshman admits the part of the event is difficult to adjust to.
Obviously the Guru Tours are a good warm-up for you, however double-in and double-out is completely different, he said.
Over the previous couple of months my doubling has probably gone somewhat better, as long as I get off the mark .
I think another year I played Michael Smith – time I did not even eliminate 501. First or second dart hopefully you get off and then you are in the match.
Cost has ever been a personality that polarises opinion, however, his stock has improved over the previous 18 months and deservedly so.
Because his Grand Slam success hes gone from strength-to-strength and his second important title is certainly on the horizon, if he continues in a similar vein.
Im convinced so I am going into every tournament believing that Im going to win. I think its tournaments like the Pro and Europeans Tours – they are.
The Grand Slam is still a great one to win and it is a significant at the bag for me, but I think the Europeans is really where I heard the most things
The Welshman is also targeting a solid end to the season, although the Grand Prix is the immediate attention of Price.
He has struggled to create the goods in the World Championship, failing to reach exactly the.
The former rugby star is also one month out of beginning his own Grand Slam of Darts title defence and hes targeting a place in the worlds top four ahead of their 2020 effort.
The last couple of years I have started off well then played rubbish at the close of the year, hopefully thats a bit different this year, he said.
I will go deep in the majors and I am not protecting far from a couple of decades ago, so hopefully a couple of great runs and attempt to push myself up into the top four.
Another man full of confidence before the PDCs annual pilgrimage into Dublin is now Rob Cross, that clinched his second important televised title in the World Matchplay of July.
Ireland hasnt been a happy hunting ground forVoltage in the last few years.
Cross has suffered exits in the hands of Steve Beaton, both at the Citywest. Hell be bidding to prevent an undesirable hat-trick if he takes on Mensur Suljovic on Monday.
Suljovic has featured in 3 Grand Prix semi-finals throughout the last four years and Cross knows he will have to be at his best to conquer the entire world No 9.
I am confident and I think my draw is magnificent, Cross informed the Darts Show podcast.
Mensur is enjoying great, but going in that game now theres no messing around. I understand I have to get off and I know I have to play well Ill be moving home again.
Obviously it is not my favourite place with what has happened in the last two decades, but in the identical time things are very different. I could not get out of the round at the Matchplay. I move on and escape from the round and win it.
Whos to say if I conquer Mensur on Monday I move on and win it? I believe a longer format would help me hugely because Ill relax just a bit more, youve got a bit more time but that the task in hand is on Monday actually and that is creating and doing what I have to do.
The format that is double-start is extremely unforgiving and his clinic regime gets shifted this year in a bid to familiarise himself.
I turned up to the Guru Tours but my mind wasnt really on the Pro Tours, it has always been on the Grand Prix so you turn up to loosen the arm, he explained.
Ive struck my doubles fine this week and I have been practising hard in it and really it is the very first time that Ive ever done . Ive never practised for it.
I try not to worry and I keep telling myself that Im going to walk it and struck doubles like the best on earth and score like the very best on the planet, but it has never worked out like that.
This season Ive had to give myself a week or two weeks and only play with it consistently, just keep going out and in and hopefully it works. Ill start on dual 18. Im likely to stick with this.
Wayne Mardle recently emphasized the importance of setting a plan of attack this is and if you are unable to pin your preferred starting.
I think this past year I started on dual 16 and I fought to score, because clearly going 32 and going up to treble 20 is a tricky change, it kind of took the match apart from me, he explained.
This year I will begin on 18s and go around to the treble 20, that is a whole good deal smaller modification. I believe as long as you have got something in your head and you stick to it, I will be totally fine.
Cross couldnt have asked for a path to glory in Dublin. If he disturbs Suljovic hell confront Glen Durrant or Krzysztof Ratajski, with a possible tie against Price in potential. But the world champion claims hes relishing the challenge.
I am looking forward to it, he added. It has definitely not been my favourite venue over the last couple of years, having never made it past the first round. This season I am nice and relaxed and I am confident that Im likely to play nicely.
Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross are in World Grand Prix action in Dublins Citywest Arena evening on Monday October 12 and also the live Sky Sports coverage lasts until the closing on Saturday.
