WDF World Cup Ladies Pairs 2019

The 22nd edition of the WDF World Cup was held in Cluj-Napoca in Romania from 7 to 12 October. All records in terms of number of participants were broken. No less then 52 men teams, 46 ladies teams and 19 countries also sent their youth to Romania. It would be a World Cup without any incidents and with a fantastic organization which is an incredible compliment to the organizing country that itself is relatively very small in darts.

With world champion Mikuru Suzuki in their midst, Japan knows how to score well at this World Cup, also in the ladies pairs in which they claim the gold. With Mayumi Ouchi by her side, she manages to beat Switzerland and Sweden, among others. Until the quarterfinals, the Japanese duo don't give up a leg. In the quarterfinals they win 4-2 against the Canadian duo Dianne Gobeil & Darlene van Sleeuwen. The biggest test a awaits in the semi-final gainst Tori Kewish & Barb Smyth from Australia. The victory comes eventually in a ninth and decisive leg.

Opponents in the final are the surprising Czech duo Jitka Cisarova & Alena Gregurkova. The Czech ladies beat a number of great pairs on their way to the final, including the Dutch duo Anca Zijlstra and Marjolein Noijens. In the quarterfinals they beat Danna Foster & Karrah Boutilier from Canada, but their best victory comes in the semi-finals against the English tandem of Lorraine Winstanley and Fallon Sherrock. The English ladies are brushed aside 5-0 without a chance.

Unfortunately, the Czech ladies cannot conjure up the good game of the semi-final in the final. Japan is way too strong and wins 6-1. History however is written for the Czech Republic because this country had never won a medal at a World Cup before.
