Fallon Sherrock fans unearth Michael van Gerwen tweet as she almost beats star in final

Fallon Sherrock almost stunned three-time PDC World Champion Michael van Gerwen to win the inaugural Nordic Darts Masters in Copenhagen on Saturday evening – but he was still made to regret a 2017 tweet.

The 32-year-old was third in the world and the favorite to win the final. He brushed aside Johnny Clayton’s threat to make it to the last two in his normal style.

Sherrock on the other side, though, came back from 8-2 down in order to defeat Dimitri Van den Bergh. Sherrock was gifted a walkover over Gerwyn Price in previous rounds.

The game was almost over and Sherrock leading by seven to five legs after a great start. Attention then turned to a tweet MVG sent four years back following his 11-7 win.

When asked back in 2017 whether there will ever be a woman player who could compete with the top men players, Van Gerwen simply replied: “No.”

The former world number one seemed to have changed his tune last year, with Sherrock becoming the first woman to beat a man at the PDC World Championships in 2019.

“Fallon, I think, is good for darts,’ Van Gerwen told Live Darts.

“She still has a lot of things to learn but she’ll be great if she listens to me.

With Sherrock saying of her rise: “The next step to it all would be – oh, it’s not just a woman beating a man.

“It’s two great players playing against each other and the winner, yes it might happen to be a woman but it’s not seen as ‘a woman’, it’s seen as a really good player.

It would be great to reach that point where it isn’t surprising anymore.

“There are many other women. You’ve got Lorraine [Winstanley], Ana (Anastasia Dobromyslova), Beau Greaves, all of them people. Even Mikuru [Suzuki].

“We can all beat the men. The more we do this, the easier it is.

“And hopefully we get to a point where it’s not massive news anymore, it’s just ‘yeah, they’ve beaten a man’. That’s the normality.”
