Wayne Mardle's 'head fell off' seeing how low down rankings Michael van Gerwen could drop
darts rankings Michael van Gerwen could drop.The Dutchman was world number one for seven years from 2014 onwards but lost the title last year following Gerwyn Price's World Championship win.Van Gerwen has since slipped down to third as a result of a dip in form and headed into this weekend's UK Open in that position.However, with a prize fund of £450,000 on offer, and the winner receiving £100k of that, there was a slim chance that he could fall down to as low as sixth in the rankings.When this was pointed out to Sky Sports pundit Mardle, he wrote on social media: "After vigorous shaking…my head has just fallen off."Van Gerwen has since avoided that fate, though, by beating Gary Anderson 10-7 on Day One on Friday.Anderson, who is the current sixth-ranked player, would have had to have won the whole competition in order to have climbed above Van Gerwen.Are you backing Van Gerwen to win the UK Open?
