Fallon Sherrock enjoys the ‘buzz’ as she breezes past Mensur Suljovic to set up a Grand Slam of Darts match against Wright.

FALLON SHERROCK took advantage of the ‘buzz’ created by the enthusiastic Grand Slam of Darts crowd to inflict yet another dose of misery on Mensur Suljovic.

Sherrock first broke the glass ceiling for women’s darts and became a household name during her run to the third round of the 2020 PDC World Darts Championship.

Suljovic, 49, was one of her victims almost two years ago, and the Austrian slow-coach has not been the same player since.

Sherrock thrashed the world No.27 10-5 in the last 16 of the TV major in Wolverhampton, giving the world No.27 even more nightmares.

Sherrock got off to a slow and stumbling start, averaging just under 78 and falling behind 2-0 in the legs.

But something clicked, and the ex-Bucks hairdresser became enraged, and she began to play at her own pace, rather than Suljovic’s slower pace.

The 27-year-old was 3-2 up after an 11-dart leg that included a 100 checkout and a 124 finish on the bull.

Sherrock won seven of the next ten legs after that, including a 90 on bullseye, to advance to the final eight, where she will face Peter Wright on Saturday evening.

The Queen of the Palace was thrashed 5-1 by the Scots in the group stage, and she will be hoping to recover quickly.

“I’m not sure how I’m doing this,” Sherrock admitted.

I also hit two bullseyes.

I’m so pleased with myself.

“It wasn’t the best game, but I’ll take the victory.”

“At 2-0 down, I thought to myself, ‘You were 2-0 down and won the first set at the worlds.’

So just unwind and have fun.’

Then it was 3-2 in my favor.

“There’s been a lot more stress than usual.”

I’ve tried to put it out of my mind and concentrate on the task at hand.

“I’m doing everything I can to stay alive.”

I’m not sure how I’m doing it.

“I enjoy being in front of the crowd, especially when I do a 180 and they go crazy.”

I got a kick out of the buzz.

“I want them to lose it and get out of their seats.”

“I’m thrilled to be playing Peter.”

We have such a good rapport.

I’m hoping to make up for the doubles I missed last time and bring the score closer.”
