The 2009 Lakeside World Professional Darts Championship was the 32nd World Championship organised by the British Darts Organisation. Mark Webster was the defending men's champion having won the title for the first time in last year's final against Simon Whitlock, but he was eliminated convincingly 4–0 by John Walton in the second round. The title was eventually won by 2000 champion Ted Hankey, who won 7–6 against Tony O'Shea, in a match which lasted just under two and a half hours. The defending women's champion, Anastasia Dobromyslova, was due to defend her championship, having beaten seven-time champion Trina Gulliver in the 2008 final, but on 7 December 2008 she resigned from the BDO/WDF setup after her defeat in the Winmau World Masters to Francis Hoenselaar. It later emerged that she had accepted the 70th and last place into the rival PDC World Championship, replacing an Indian qualifier. This meant that for the first time, the defending women's champion would not be returning to defend her title. Hoenselaar, a five-time runner-up, finally won her first world title by beating Gulliver – the player that had beaten her each time – by two sets to one. The event took place from 3–11 January 2009 and for the 24th time, the tournament took place at the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green.

Tournament Review[edit]

Day One, Saturday 3 January[edit]

Men's[edit]

  • The first six games of the first round
Gary Anderson 3–2 Robert Wagner (2-3, 3–0, 1–3, 3–0, 3–0)
Simon Whitlock 3–0 Mark Barilli (3-2, 3–0, 3–0)
Eddy Sims 2–3 Robert Hughes (3-2, 1–3, 3–2, 0–3, 1–3)
Tony O'Shea 3–0 Daniel Larsson (3-1, 3–0, 3–2)
Darryl Fitton 3–0 Mark Salmon (3-0, 3–0, 3–0)
Edwin Max 3–2 Krzysztof Ratajski (3-2, 1–3, 3–2, 2–3, 3–0)

Women's[edit]

  • The first two quarter-finals
Trina Gulliver 2–0 Lisa Ashton (3-1, 3–0)
Karin Krappen 2–1 Anne Kirk (3-2, 1–3, 3–1)

The opening match of the 2009 world championships was between top seed and favourite Gary Anderson and Norway's Robert Wagner. A tight contest, Anderson known for his struggles at the world championship, managed to edge the match 3–2 and avenge his defeat to Wagner in the last 16 of the 2008 Winmau World Masters. Next up was Simon Whitlock, last year's runner-up, who put in a good performance in beating Mark Barilli 3–0. Tony O'Shea looked impressive in seeing off Sweden's Daniel Larsson 3–0, while Darryl Fitton, the 5th seed, eased past Mark Salmon 3–0 without dropping a leg though Fitton was far from his best. There were wins for Edwin Max and Robert Hughes as well.

Day Two, Sunday 4 January[edit]

Men's[edit]

  • Six more first round matches
Mark Webster 3–0 Willy van de Wiel (3-1, 3–0, 3–0)
Scott Waites 3–0 Ross Smith (3-0, 3–0, 3–1)
John Walton 3–0 Shaun Greatbatch (3-0, 3–1, 3–0)
Steve West 0–3 Alan Norris (1-3, 0–3, 0–3)
Ted Hankey 3–0 Brian Woods (3-0, 3–2, 3–0)
Gary Robson 3–1 Stephen Bunting (3-1, 3–1, 2–3, 3–1)

Women's[edit]

  • The two remaining quarter-finals
Francis Hoenselaar 2–0 Carla Molema (3-1, 3–1)
Julie Gore 1–2 Rilana Erades (3-1, 0–3, 2–3)

The opening match saw Mark Webster begin the defence of his title and he brushed aside Holland's Willy van de Wiel. 2008 Masters runner-up Scott Waites also impressed as he saw off a poor Ross Smith 3–0. 2000 champion Ted Hankey and 2001 champion John Walton both had 3–0 wins over former semi-finalists Brian Woods and Shaun Greatbatch respectively. Walton's match against Greatbatch was emotional as Greatbatch is fighting bone marrow cancer. Former World Darts Trophy champion Gary Robson laid down a marker as he overcame Stephen Bunting 3–1 in a high quality match where he averaged 98. Sweden's Alan Norris shocked number 13 seed Steve West, brother of former Masters champion Tony West 3–0.

Day Three, Monday 5 January[edit]

  • The four remaining first round matches
Martin Atkins 3–2 Joey ten Berge (3-1, 0–3, 3–0, 0–3, 3–0)
Martin Adams 3–2 Dave Chisnall (3-1, 2–3, 3–0, 0–3, 5–3)
Ross Montgomery 3–1 Martin Phillips (3-0, 2–3, 3–0, 3–1)
Garry Thompson 1–3 Daryl Gurney (1-3, 3–1, 1–3, 0–3)

Day three saw reigning Masters champion Martin Adams begin his 16th World Championship campaign. Adams was nervy particularly over his doubles but beat Dave Chisnall 3–2 in a tiebreak. Martin Atkins also progressed by beating Joey ten Berge 3–2 in another tight contest. Ross Montgomery saw off Martin Phillips 3–1 whilst debutant Daryl Gurney saw off number 14 seed and fellow debutant Garry Thompson 3–1.

Day Four, Tuesday 6 January[edit]

  • The beginning of the second round
Tony O'Shea 4–0 Edwin Max (3-1, 3–1, 3–1, 3–0)
Simon Whitlock 2–4 Darryl Fitton (3-0, 0–3, 3–2, 2–3, 1–3, 2–3)
Robert Hughes 2–4 Gary Anderson (0-3, 3–1, 3–2, 1–3, 1–3, 1–3)
Alan Norris 0–4 Scott Waites (0-3, 2–3, 1–3, 2–3)

Day four saw the start of the second round. Tony O'Shea averaged 92 as he destroyed Holland's Edwin Max 4–0. Darryl Fitton laid down a marker as he averaged 98 by beating the previous year's finalist Simon Whitlock 4–2 in a high quality contest in which Whitlock averaged 92. Top seed Gary Anderson overcame his usual early exits by making the quarter-finals beating Wales' Robert Hughes 4–2. World Masters runner-up Scott Waites eased through to the quarter-finals with a 4–0 win over Alan Norris.

Day Five, Wednesday 7 January[edit]

  • The conclusion of the second round
Daryl Gurney 2–4 Martin Adams (1-3, 2–3, 3–2, 3–2, 2–3, 2–3)
John Walton 4–0 Mark Webster (3-1, 3–2, 3–0, 3–1)
Ted Hankey 4–1 Ross Montgomery (3-2, 3–0, 1–3, 3–1, 3–2)
Martin Atkins 1–4 Gary Robson (1-3, 1–3, 0–3, 3–1, 2–3)

Daryl Gurney gave the number three seed Martin Adams a real scare before the World Masters champion came through 4–2. Adams had been 2–0 up before Gurney levelled the match at 2–2, but Adams edged each of the next 2 sets 3–2 to book his place in the quarters. The shock of the week followed as 2001 World Champion John Walton knocked out the defending champion Mark Webster 4–0. Walton played brilliantly whislt the Welshman was well below par, winning only 4 legs in the match and seeing his reign as World Champion end. 2000 World Champion Ted Hankey saw off Scotland's Ross Montgomery 4–1 whilst number six seed Gary Robson saw off Martin Atkins 4–1.

Day Six, Thursday 8 January[edit]

Men's[edit]

  • The quarter-finals in the top half of the draw
Gary Anderson 3–5 Tony O'Shea (2-3, 1–3, 2–3, 3–2, 0–3, 3–1, 3–2, 0–3)
Darryl Fitton 5–4 Scott Waites (3-2, 2–3, 2–3, 3–0, 2–3, 2–3, 3–1, 3–1, 3–1)

Women's[edit]

  • The semi-finals
Karin Krappen 0–2 Trina Gulliver (1-3, 1–3)
Rilana Erades 0–2 Francis Hoenselaar (1-3, 1–3)

Tony O'Shea reached the semi-finals of the World Championships for the second time in his career as he upset the number one seed and title favourite Gary Anderson 5–3. O'Shea played sensationally in the opening 5 sets, racing into a 4–1 lead before nerves set in and Anderson took the next two to make it 4–3. O'Shea regained his composure to take the next set for the win. Darryl Fitton came from 4–1 down to beat World Masters runner-up Scott Waites and set up a semi-final clash with one of his best friends and fellow native of Stockport, O'Shea. In the women's championship, both Trina Gulliver and Francis Hoenselaar gained 2–0 wins to set up their sixth final against one another.

Day Seven, Friday 9 January[edit]

Men's[edit]

  • The two remaining quarter-finals
John Walton 1–5 Ted Hankey (1-3, 1–3, 2–3, 0–3, 3–0, 1–3)
Gary Robson 4–5 Martin Adams (1-3, 1–3, 0–3, 3–1, 3–1, 3–0, 1–3, 3–2, 0–3)

Women's[edit]

  • The final
Trina Gulliver 1–2 Francis Hoenselaar (2-3, 3–0, 0–3)

Former World Champion Ted Hankey saw off 2001 champion John Walton with a magnificent display. Hankey beat Walton – who had only dropped five legs before the match – by five sets to one. Martin Adams gave up a 3–0 lead over Gary Robson, who made it 4–4, before the Masters champion won the final set 3–0 to complete a 5–4 win and set up a semi-final clash with Hankey. This meant that all four semi-finalists were 40 or older – the first time that this had ever occurred at a World Championship, in either organisation. (Hankey 40, Fitton 46, O'Shea 47 and Adams 52)

Day Eight, Saturday 10 January[edit]

  • The semi-finals
Tony O'Shea 6–4 Darryl Fitton (2-3, 3–1, 0–3, 3–2, 3–1, 3–1, 3–0, 1–3, 2–3, 3–2)
Ted Hankey 6–4 Martin Adams (0-3, 3–2, 3–1, 2–3, 3–1, 1–3, 3–2, 3–2, 1–3, 3–1)

Day Nine, Sunday 11 January[edit]

  • The final
Tony O'Shea 6–7 Ted Hankey (3-2, 1–3, 1–3, 0–3, 3–2, 1–3, 3–1, 1–3, 3–2, 0–3, 3–2, 3–2, 1–3)
