James Wilson had a brilliant rise up the rankings but since then injuries including one to his eye have hampered his progress.
Wilson spoke to DartsNews recently during the break from darts due to Coronavirus; he admitted that this came at the wrong time for him as he was just starting to make progress again.
In addition, he reflected on his World Championship defeat to Nico Kurz; he said that for him, he was just pleased to make it to the Alexandra Palace after his injuries.
“Was just getting back in to the swing of things after my injuries last year when this virus broke out so not had much of a chance yet to compete and get back to my best,” said Wilson to DartsNews.com.
“Of course it was disappointing to lose first round; but I was thankful I made it to the worlds, due to my eye and shoulder injury I lost a lot of games last season and dropped down the rankings so it was touch and go if I made the worlds or not.”
