Mensur Suljovic is dreaming after winning the Austrian Darts Championship in Vienna last weekend.

Suljovic became the first playoff player to win a PDC name on home turf on Sunday, recovering from 6-3 down to defeat world # 1 Michael van Gerwen in a finale.
‘The balmy’ had won only four of his past 17 meetings against the Dutchman, but maintain his first position title of 2019 and he also registered his first victory over MVG at a final to scoop the 25,000 top prize.
Suljovic becomes just the sixth player to have won more or three European Tour titles and also Darts winner’s Champions League insisted that it had been the biggest win of his own life.
“It is the first time I’ve ever won a game on point in Vienna and I won the occasion – it is absolutely brilliant,” said Suljovic.
“Michael is the No 1, however at the four-week holiday I have practised every day and that I was hungry. To acquire a European Tour event in my town is wonderful, my biggest triumph.”
Even though the entire world No 9 has his sights set on the World Championship moves into the cusp of reclaiming a spot in the planet’s top eight.
The 47-year-old has never gone beyond the third round in 11 previous Alexandra Palace looks, but he thinks he will compete for the biggest honor in world darts after his latest triumph.
“This is absolutely the greatest moment in my career, I am very happy,” said Suljovic.
“Following this triumph is the first time that I have thought possibly I could be a world champion.
“There was pressure to play nicely in Vienna in front of the best crowd in the world.
“They handed me a push each time. After I was 6-3 down in the closing, the crowd pushed me to come back and win the game.”
Suljovic will aim to make it European Tour titles as he attributes in the weekend’s European Darts Matchplay at Mannheim, although his key mission is the next month’s World Grand Prix, in which he has reached three semi-finals from the previous four years.
It is not long to wait patiently until darts goes back to Sky Sports, the World Grand Prix gets underway Sunday, October 6 in Dublin’s Citywest Arena and seven times of coverage continues until the final on Saturday, October 12.
