Fallon Cherokee will appear at the Queensland Darts Masters in Australia later this week. After its previous participations in New York, Copenhagen and Amsterdam, this will be the fourth World Championship of the season.
‘Queen of the Palace’ had a disappointing start to the world championship circuit after losing out on the American Darts Masters and Holland Darts Masters. In between, she made it to the second round in Nordic Darts Masters. In the trilogy in Australia and New Zealand, Sherrock hopes to show what she can actually do.
“I haven’t played well in the world championships this season,” she admitted in a conversation with PDC. “But last year I reached the final in Copenhagen and did well in the Grand Slam of Darts. I have proven what I can do. I especially hope to be consistent with my game. It will be good for my confidence to prepare for the upcoming Women’s Grand Slam series, the Darts Grand Slam and I hope for a tournament world for arrows.”
“It would be great to win a few games. It would be another great final and winning the championship would be great. But the most important thing is to play well. I know what went wrong in New York and I will not let that happen again.”
Sherrock spoke candidly last month about the criticism she has faced since her performance at Alexandra Palace. Her recent success at the Women’s World Championships, which Sherrock won in late July, could ease that burden.
“I feel like I am going to Australia with less pressure now. I have shown that I can win titles when I am not playing against men. People will always say I can only win against men, but I have proven otherwise.”
