The anniversary edition of the Masters has given two new champions. Deta Hedman won the women’s final in two straight sets and after a thrilling final with quality darts Scott Waites won the men’s tournament.
Deta reached the finals by winning the last game of her group from Anastasia Dobromyslova. In the finale her opponent was Aileen de Graaf who made her debut on this tournament. Ailleen won in spectacular way of Irina Armstrong in the deciding game in her group.
But the finale she was to nervous to give a good performance. She acts not that long on this level and misses the experience a player like Deta has build throughout the Years. And so she had to deal being whitewashed by Deta Hedman( two times 3-0 in the sets).
The men’s final between Darryl Fitton and Scott Waites was a pleasure to watch. Both were not done and when we read the statistics, we see them together they produced 90 times a score of 100 had a ton plus score of 53 times and 31 times the maximum score was thrown.
Scott won the first set and Darryl second. That they were matched to each other we can read in the scores of the sets. Almost all sets were played over the full five legs, only set 3 and 9 where Scotty2Hotty won, 3-0. In 8th set was Scott Waites was very close to hit a 9 darter but missed the 8th triple. Scott won this final 5 -4
