As he sets his sights on winning a name that is individual since 2014 adrian Lewis is feeling refreshed following his summer break.
The two-time world champion has suffered a 2019 so much, as he aims a third triumph in the Alexandra Palace this season, but he’s convinced of recapturing his form at the perfect time.
The mercurial Stoke-on-Trent star won his PDC standing name at March, defeating Raymond van Barneveld to acquire a Players Championship occasion in Barnsley.
However,’Jackpot’ has been unable to build on that success and he has failed to go beyond the semi-finals of any PDC event since.
“I think I have had an up and down year,” Lewis told Sky Sports.
“I won a Pro Tour, I’ve created a number of semi’s and finals but as a whole it can be better, I have just got to keep working at it really.
“This is the time where you want to start hitting top shape today, this is the time you have to work really hard in establishing to the World Championships, there is that many TV tournaments now coming up”
Although Lewis has shown glimpses of the brilliant on the parade that period, his performances in televised events have been particularly underwhelming.
He has failed to enroll a success in a major TV event this year, enduring round exits at UK Open, the Experts and World Matchplay against Peter Wright, Jamie Lewis and Glen Durrant respectively.
The next televised tournament on the calendar is October’s World Grand Prix in Dublin, a tournament since reaching the last in 34, in which Lewis hasn’t progressed beyond the last eight years.
But with a series of tournaments on the horizon, the two-time world winner is convinced of climbing up the positions and adding another significant title to his haul, as he bids to end his five-year drought.
“My goal is simply to jump as high as I can in the rankings really,” the former Premier League superstar said.
“I am sitting at number 15 today, I’m not actually defending anything from now before the World Championship, so keep moving up today.
“I’ll find out if I can pinch just a tiny TV tournament there or here, then the Worlds. You must get yourself appropriate for the Worlds.
“If you can’t get yourself for that you should not be playing. That’s the biggest one the Worlds, next is that the World Matchplay and then you’d have to say the Premier League I presume.”
Lewis defended 30,000 in prize money in the Matchplay by virtue of hitting the and also his defeat Durrant watched him relinquish his place in the world 16 – a place that he has recovered.
“Obviously I had been defending the semi-final of this World Matchplay that knocked me back, losing to Glen [Durrant] in the first round,” that the 34-year-old added.
“It was a difficult draw but they are all tough draws. It just depends on or even you do not win in case you turn up then you have got a great chance.
“I believe the averages are pretty similar to what they have been throughout but the odd game folks are knocking at 110 and 115’s. That is occurring on a regular basis today.”
While many of the most important titles of the PDC competed Down Under on the World Series circuit month,’Jackpot’ appreciated some time away from the sport and he’s returned feeling refreshed.
Lewis, who marked his return to action with a third round defeat to Cameron Menzies in the literary Darts Championship of last weekend, considers it is essential to obtain the correct work-life equilibrium.
“Clearly all the boys were over at the World Series where I took five months off enjoying,” he said.
“I had just had two hours practice before a weekend, but that is where I begin building up now.
“It’s important to spend time with your family. You’ve got to get the ideal balance. If it’s all of darts, you will then burn out.
“I think after that break everybody wishes to get back to it and receive a bit of normality back into your own life.”
It’s not long to wait patiently until darts goes back on Sky Sports, the World Grand Prix gets underway on Sunday, October 6 in Dublin’s Citywest Arena October 12 and seven times of coverage continues until the closing on Saturday.
