PDC Autumn Series: Draw revealed for Players Championship 15 in Niedernhausen
The draw has been revealed for Day Two of the PDC Autumn Series, with 128 players battling it out for Players Championship 15 success in Niedernhausen, Germany.
The H+ Hotel continues its debut stint hosting professional darts as the second of five consecutive £75,000 ranking tournaments take place.
Peter Wright reigned victorious on Day One in western Germany, emphatically overcoming surprise package Madars Razma 8-1 in a one-sided final.
The number one seed now faces his fellow world champion Jelle Klaasen in the opening round as he bids for back-to-back crowns and his sixth title of the year.
Latvia’s Razma will be seeded for the first time on Sunday afternoon, and takes on former World Matchplay quarter-finalist Matt Clark.
World number one Michael van Gerwen returned to form on Saturday, reaching the semi-finals before enduring defeat against the eventual winner Wright, and he faces fellow Dutchman Niels Zonneveld in his opener.
Second seed Gerwyn Price meets former ranking event finalist Richard North, while third seed Krzysztof Ratajski takes on Croatia’s Boris Krcmar in an all-Eastern European clash.
South Africa’s Devon Petersen, who narrowly missed out on a maiden ranking final on Saturday afternoon, faces Hong Kong’s Kai Fan Leung in a repeat of yesterday’s first round collision.
Premier League table-topper Glen Durrant locks horns with a tough opponent in Dutchman Martijn Kleermaker, while Nathan Aspinall meets James Wilson and world number four Michael Smith takes on Keegan Brown.
Smith was beaten by four-time women’s world champion Lisa Ashton at the opening hurdle on Saturday afternoon, with Ashton facing another highly-ranked player in Ian White in Sunday’s opener.
Former world champions Rob Cross and Adrian Lewis take on world youth champions in Luke Humphries and Dimitri Van den Bergh respectively.
Play is scheduled to commence from 12pm local time in Germany (11am in the UK), with the action streamed live via PDCTV and various bookmakers’ websites.
