Fallon Sherrock's run at the Grand Slam of Darts continued in emphatic fashion as she defeated Mensur Suljovic 10-5 in Wolverhampton to reach her first PDC major quarter-final.

The 27-year-old, who hit a magical 170 checkout against Gabriel Clemens on Tuesday night to become the first woman to reach the knockout stages of the competition, repeated her World Championship victory against Suljovic at the Alexandra Palace in 2019.

The Austrian came into the match off the back of a 104 average in his final group game but he was below-par on Thursday night.

Sherrock was the underdog but once again made a mockery of the odds to further launch her career to new heights.

It did not look like it would be that way early on as Suljovic took the opening two legs, but Sherrock hit a 100 checkout for a 11-dart finish before taking out 124 for a 12-darter to level things up.

Sherrock won six out of seven legs to lead 6-3 before Suljovic stopped the rot with a 14-dart hold of throw heading into the second interval.

Suljovic could not maintain any consistency, however, and he was duly punished as Sherrock, who herself was missing chances, moved one away from another famous victory at 9-4.

A classy 106 checkout on tops kept Suljovic in the match but Sherrock stormed to victory in the next leg, wrapping things up with a double nine after 14 darts.

She will face Peter Wright, who ended Jose de Sousa's reign as Grand Slam of Darts champion with a hard-fought 10-9 win.

A tense game saw both players struggle to produce their best throughout, with 38 missed double attempts between the pair.

Having not led since the third leg, Wright snatched victory at the death; eventually finding his way over the winning line in the deciding leg having spurned five match darts to win 10-8.

The game of the night saw three-time Grand Slam champion Van Gerwen overcome Gary Anderson 10-8 in a high-class battle between two of the sport's all-time greats.

In a contest which saw both players average over 100, Anderson flew out of the blocks, landing a 124 checkout on his way to a 3-2 lead.

However, Van Gerwen won four of the next five legs to turn the game on its head and lead 6-4.

Anderson stuck with the Dutchman, but was unable to find the break needed to draw level as Van Gerwen kept him at bay with checkouts of 82 and 78, both in two darts.

With Van Gerwen 9-8 in front, Anderson missed a dart at double top to send the game to a decider before Van Gerwen held his nerve with a 25 finish in two darts to seal the deal.

Van Gerwen will now take on Michael Smith, who come agonisingly close to a nine-darter in his 10-5 win over Joe Cullen.

Smith missed double 12 in the last leg of the match, before returning a visit later to seal his passage to the quarter-finals for a third successive year.

A tale of missed doubles and high scoring saw both players land six 180s each, but once Smith hit the front at 4-3 he never relinquished his lead.
