Anastasia Dobromyslova back in darting action

// 5 June 2009

Remember Anastasia Dobromyslova, the darts player who appalled Wayne Mardle by giving him a run for his money?

“It is hard for any man to play a lady,” the Sky Sports pundit has just commented.

Anyway, she was in action today in the UK Open, which has a bit of a tradition of women competing, if only on a small-scale. She’s been knocked out 5-2 by Andy Roberts, and the commentators are delighted to share in the relief he must be feeling. I genuinely hope that Dobromyslova fulfils her potential at some point soon and puts these poor, poor men through the wringer and into the 21st century.
