Players Championship 7: Gerwyn Price storms past Madars Razma to claim 25th career title

Gerwyn Price produced four ton-plus averages as he powered to victory at Players Championship 7 in Niedernhausen, Germany.

The Iceman is on the hunt to reclaim his world number one ranking, and he's certainly made a good start following his latest tournament win. 

While his 8-4 victory in the final over Latvia's Madars Razma may have looked straightforward, the Welshman's semi-final contest was far from that.

In fact, Price was forced to comeback from 6-2 down as he beat Rob Cross 7-6 to win a thrilling battle between the two former world champions.

Speaking after the event, Price told the PDC website: "I got lucky in the semis but you need a bit of lucky to win any tournament.

"Rob missed loads of chances and I took advantage, but I've been on the other side of that plenty of times so I'll take it.

"Most of the day I played alright. My hand is still not 100 per cent right but if I can still win ProTours that's not too bad.

"Playing in ProTours will stand me in good stead for the rest of the Premier League, they give me the match practice I've been missing due to my hand injury."

Price's run to the final saw him beat Connor Scutt and Ted Evetts in the opening two rounds. He then saw off Dutch duo Geert Nentjes and Dirk van Duijvenbode to set up the semi-final blockbuster against Cross.

The 2022 PDC ProTour season continues with Players Championships 8 on Sunday at the H+ Hotel in Niedernhausen, where back-to-back titles for Price would see him move back to top spot on the PDC Order of Merit.
