Just on the ladies for one second

I thought I'd have a quick look at what Ashton and Suzuki did over the course of the tournament:


That's fifty legs they've won between them, and only ten of them were in fifteen darts or less. In comparison, when Sherrock had her run at the worlds, she won 32 legs - twenty of which were in five visits or better, four of which were twelves or better. While Mikuru did play somewhat better in her PDC appearances (9/17 five visit legs won for a near 88 winning PPT, and near 84 overall), this does highlight some of the perils of using numbers at what are lower levels of play - against better opposition, how many of those seven visit kills get turned into losing legs? It's why I'm wanting to be incredibly careful if I want to incorporate more non-PDC, and PDC events that aren't on the main tour, into the database.

Of course, it's perfectly possible that neither player is was playing at 100% on account of the whole BDO fiasco, and that, at least in earlier rounds, they didn't really need to. But it's something to be aware of, and these figures somewhat highlight why people are saying that it's going to be probably odds against that any of the ladies' players come away with a tour card.
