Day after winning title, Van Gerwen painfully lost on Autumn Series | NOW

Michael van Gerwen was unable to give his first title in the Autumn Series on Tuesday a good follow-up to Players Championship 17. The Dutchman was painfully lost in Niedernhausen in Germany against South African Devon Petersen: 0-6.

The 31-year-old Van Gerwen started the fourth day of the Autumn Series well with problem-free victories over fellow countryman Benito van de Pas (6-0) and the Briton Ted Evetts (6-2), but for a place in the last sixteen was he has no chance against Petersen.

The number 52 in the world ranking threw an average of 101.33 per three arrows, while Van Gerwen did not get further than 90.46. De Brabander got six chances to get a leg, but missed those doubles and was able to do a so-called whitewash not prevent.

A day earlier, Van Gerwen refueled confidence by writing Players Championship 16 to his name. The number one in the world, who threw his old arrows, was no less than 8-1 too strong for the Austrian Mensur Suljovic in the final.

That was a necessary boost for Van Gerwen after the Premier League that had been disappointing for him. For the first time in his career, he failed to make it to the play-offs of the prestigious league.

The Autumn Series are a continuation of the Summer Series in June. The event, in which five Players Championships will be organized in a row, started on Saturday and will run until Wednesday.
