OK, I'll admit it, I watched the opening ceremony alongside the darts last night - James Wade and Michael van Gerwen put on a show, but it didn't compare to Danny Boyle's show. That being said, we had an afternoon session beforehand, which is always a treat.
No joy for Justin Pipe last night, as Ronnie Baxter used the hometown advantage perfectly, and he makes an unexpected apperance in the semi-finals, where he'll be taking on Phil Taylor. James Wade was a quality winner over Michael van Gerwen, and he takes on Terry Jenkins, who just keeps on beating the so-called big guns.
