Lewis on top form in Germany

ADRIAN LEWIS claimed his first PDC ProTour win of 2010 with a 6-4 win over Mark Walsh in the final of Sunday's German Darts Classic Players Championship.

The 25-year-old from Stoke picked up the £6,000 title in Gladbeck with a fine performance, coming from 4-3 down to take three successive legs in winning the final.

Lewis produced legs of 11 and 15 darts to lead 2-0 in the final - hitting a showpiece 96 finish of single 20, double 18 and double top in the second.

Walsh hit back to win the next three, including a 126 finish, in taking the lead, and also punished missed doubles from Lewis in leg seven to edge 4-3 up.

But Lewis took out a 14-darter to level, double four to break throw and then sealed victory with an 80 finish of two double tops in ensuring the title.

Earlier in the day, he had avenged Saturday's defeat to Mark Dudbridge with a 6-2 win, and also overcame Mick McGowan, Maik Langendorf, Steve Hine and Robert Thornton to reach the semis.

He also found himself 4-3 down in the last four against Dolan, but included a 121 bullseye finish in winning the next three without reply in taking victory.

Walsh battled past Gary Anderson with a 6-3 semi-final win, having been taken to a deciding leg in the quarter-finals by Steve Brown.

Anderson's run to the last four included whitewashes of the top two ranked players in the event, James Wade and Mervyn King, while Dolan's display was his best for five months.

The Northern Irishman knocked out former Lakeside Champion Mark Webster in the last eight, as well as Whyte & Mackay Premier League Darts star Ronnie Baxter on the day.

Saturday's champion Vincent van der Voort was a last 32 loser to fellow Dutchman Co Stompe, but Wayne Jones - the runner-up 24 hours earlier - was a first round casualty to German Bernd Roith.
