Nentjes: 'Don't take darts seriously enough'
Geert Nentjes was remarkably cheerful after his defeat to Kim Huybrechts in the first round of the World Cup darts in London. The 21-year-old Urker was already happy that he had resisted his opponent well and had turned it into an exciting match. "I don't actually take the game as seriously as I should. I am one of the youngest participants and I am still in school. Other boys my age have a big study debt and I have already thrown together a nice pocket."

"If I have to sign for reaching the final and then lose it, I will do so immediately. Can you see how desperate I am? I have never called this in my entire life, but this year will make you realistic "I have to prepare myself for it to be a great World Cup. Do the things I did as a seventeen-year-old boy in the attic room. Maybe the passion and the faith will come back." (3/3)

"This life pulls everything out of me. Every time I have those depressions. If you keep losing, I can keep going for a while, but not years. My last major title (the Premier League of Darts, ed.) Dates from 2014. Believe me, today we live in a society that revolves around winning. I have been walking around this world for the last five years with the idea that I no longer belonged. " (2/3)

Van Gerwen explains why he hates Klaasen
Michael van Gerwen started crying at the press conference after his victory (3-1) over Jelle Klaasen in the first round of the World Cup darts in London. The defending champion said he hated his countryman because of a past event. Klaasen was sentenced to a 16-hour community service in 2012 and a fine of 400 euros for having sent a number of nude photos of himself to a minor girl. Van Gerwen revealed on Friday that the girl in question is his family. (1/3)

"If someone sends something like that to my wife's sister, while she was fourteen and has a disability, you will break. I will never be able to give it a place and I will never forgive him," says Van Gerwen about Klaasen. "It happened a long time ago, but it's all coming up again. Jelle and I were so close to each other in the past. We saw each other five days a week, did everything together. That's about of course. I like him not to the bone. " (2/3)

Van Gerwen and Klaasen did not shake hands on the podium before and after the match. They walked past each other and did not want each other to look at each other. "Jelle does not deserve respect, so I am not going to give him a hand. I think that the people who accuse me of unsporting behavior are doing well now that they know what has happened in the past," Van Gerwen explained. "I thought it would be easier for myself, but it was very hard for me to face him. I was constantly thinking about it." (3/3)
