Phil Taylor vs Robert Thornton by AlQahira
The most interesting game of the day at the World Championship of Darts is the one between Phil Taylor and Robert Thornton. Phil "The Power" Taylor is far from the invincible player from two-three years ago. He is still at the top of the PDC rankings but he is far from unbeatable, Robert Thornton having the advantage of winning against him on a big stage, at the last UK Open and the victory was convincing, 11-5. In the first two rounds Taylor won against Mansell and Hendriks but his game lacked depth. Thornton destroyed Magnus Caris in the first round having an average close to 100 and in the second round staged a classic alongside Paul Nicholson, only won on the last leg of the last set. I think this match will be evenly contested, if Thornton (and considering his performance at the UK Open I have every reason to belive that he would) rises up to the challenge and bring his A game this should be a cracker and "The Thorn" has big chances of winning.
