Adrian Lewis seals PDC world champion crown
Date Posted: 04/01/11
Stoke's Adrian Lewis is the new PDC world champion after beating Scotland's Gary Anderson in a pulsating final at the Alexandra Palace.
The man known as Jackpot claimed the crown 7-5, having nailed a stunning nine-dart finish in the third leg of the opening set to get the final off to a great start.
Lewis was delighted after his victory, claiming that he now needs to "push on from this", starting with an appearance in front of those booking hotels near The O2 arena, for the opening night of the new Premier League season at the London venue on Thursday February 10th.
"I think I deserve it. I knew I had to come out strong against him. When I hit the two 180s I thought I'd miss the double 12," he said.
Lewis, who picked up a cheque for £200,000, told Sky Sports that he was "in a dream world" and could not yet comprehend his win.
