Price could become only the fourth-ever player to win multiple World Grand Slam titles.

Gerwyn Price is aiming to become only the fourth player in BoyleSports World Grand Prix history to win two double-start titles in Sunday’s showdown against Luke Humphries.

Price, who won the coveted championship in 2020, defeated world number one Michael Smith in the semi-finals on Saturday to go to his third World Grand Prix final in four years.

In order to join the select group of Phil Taylor, James Wade, and Michael van Gerwen in accomplishing the feat, the Welshman is now aiming for a second double-start victory at Leicester’s Morningside Arena.

Price breezed by 2021 semi-finalist Danny Noppert, Poland’s number one Krzysztof Ratajski, and German star Martin Schindler in Leicester without dropping a set.

He was obliged to come back from 2-1 down in sets to defeat World Champion Smith, winning nine of the final ten legs to complete an incredible comeback.

“It would mean the world to me to lift another trophy,” insisted Price, who is without a televised ranking title since he celebrated a hat-trick of Grand Slam successes in November 2021.

“I don’t particularly enjoy the double-start format, but I think I concentrate a little more and get into the zone, and sometimes the cream rises to the top!

“I’m defending a lot of ranking points over the next few months, so I want to do well here and ease the pressure going into the Grand Slam and the World Championship.

“It’s going to be a tough game. Luke is a great player. He’s had a bit of lady-luck on his side in this tournament, as we saw with Peter [Wright] missing match darts.”

“I’ve got plenty more gears left, but it’s about whether I can bring them out,” added Price, who also steered Wales to a second World Cup of Darts success alongside Jonny Clayton in June.

“I’m playing nowhere near my best, but if I do, then I think I will lift this trophy.

“I’m still winning matches, I’m still winning tournaments, so when I bring my A-game, they can look out!”
