Michael van Gerwen has not had the best time of it as of late especially in TV tournaments and goes into the World Grand Prix this weekend with even more pressure to succeed.
For MVG though he wants to dominate again and come away with glory at the CityWest to kick start the rest of his season.
“I’ve always played my best stuff at this time of year,” said the world number one.
“This year it is important that I do even better because I’m not happy with some of my results so far, especially in the TV events.
“I’m still doing really well and winning more than anybody else but I want to dominate. I do not think it is possible to win every tournament these days but I go into every tournament seeing anything less than winning as a failure.
“The World Grand Prix is special to me because it was my first big PDC title and I have won it three times. I know how winning feels and what it does – it makes you win more – so I am heading to Dublin to win and start something special for the end of this season.”
