Price: I Can Be As Dominant As Van Gerwen

GERWYN PRICE believes he can win, playing behind closed doors, at the BetFred World Matchplay and that he can go much further.

Price is adamant that the top stars will be raring to go with high quality when the Summer Series kicks off on July 8 and then the Matchplay on July 18.He also believes that he can go all the way to World No.1 over the next half a decade.

He added: “You always get surprises but I think you will see the usual boys get towards the end of tournaments. I’ve been practicing harder than ever and I’m ready. I just think everybody is going to hit the ground running and be in top gear after the first game.“I’m still pretty new when you compare me to other players.

But I’ve got a hell of a lot more inside me. I played well in the Grand Slam last year, decent in the Worlds.

 “I’ve got more inside and if I can bring that out over the next three, four, five years, then I think I can get to No.1

and hopefully, I can be as dominant as Michael over the past few years. I truly believe I can be.”
