- Three-time champion missed last year due to Covid-19
- Dutchman joined in third round by Dave Chisnall, Mervyn King
Michael van Gerwen began his quest for a fourth PDC World Championship title by routing Lewy Williams, with the Dutchman dropping just one leg en route to a commanding 3-0 win.
Van Gerwen had to withdraw from last year’s event after being struck down by Covid-19 but he is among the favourites to regain the Sid Waddell Trophy after claiming four major titles in 2022.
