Gerwyn Price has his eyes on becoming world number one and insists he fears no one but himself ahead of this weekend's bwin World Series of Darts Finals.

Price heads into this weekend's event as the sport's form player, having claimed back-to-back titles on Tuesday and Wednesday to top the Autumn Series Order of Merit.

Before heading to Salzburg for the PDC's first event in front of a crowd since March, the world number three gave an insight into his mentality and where he sees himself in relation to his elite rivals.

"I don't care who I play now. Even Michael [van Gerwen] at his best against me at my best I think I turn him over," said Price.

"That's how confident I am. I'm not scared of anyone anymore, the biggest threat to me is myself.

"I only need to win the Worlds and have a couple of good runs in other majors and I think I will be world number one.

"And that's the difference in the past 18 months. I'm full of confidence and winning leads to that.

"If I play my best game then I am the best player in the world.

"I want to win everything, I don't just target certain events. Every tournament I go into I think I can win."

Price admits he never expected to be playing at such a high level


Price heads into the World Series of Darts Finals as third favourite for the title behind Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright.

Renowned for playing the 'pantomime villain', Price is looking forward to performing in front of fans for the first time in over six months.

"I'm going into the World Series Finals with confidence and I'm looking forward to playing in front of a crowd again," Price continued.

"I definitely prefer playing in front of a crowd and I think it brings the best out of me.

"I just want to carry on from where I've left off. I know I'm playing well, I've had two good days and hopefully I can carry this form into the weekend and the other ranking events for the rest of the year.

"I think everybody will be up for it this weekend though, not just me."

Since unexpectedly winning his Tour Card in January 2014 Price has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the sport's elite level, and even the confident Welshman admitted he has surpassed his wildest expectations.

"Never in a million years did I think I would be at this level," admitted Price.

"When I went to Q School I didn't expect to get through at all. I just went along for a bit of a 'jolly up'.

"I knew I was a decent player but I never thought I'd get to the standard that I am now.

"If I never came to the PDC I definitely wouldn't be the player I am. Playing against the best players in the world week-in week-out for the last seven years has brought the best out of me."

The event will be shown on ITV4 in the UK, with worldwide coverage through RTL7, DAZN and other PDC broadcast partners accompanied live streaming for PDCTV Rest of the World Subscribers.
