After Reaching World Semi-Final, Jamie Lewis’ Tweet From October Has Now Blown Up

Jamie Lewis has been the story of the PDC World Championships so far. The Welshman came through the qualifiers, to reach the first round proper by winning a preliminary round.

Since then, he has embarked on a remarkable giant-killing run, reaching the semi-finals where he will face Phil Taylor tomorrow.

He has already taken out second seed Peter Wright, hitting an average of over 107, before backing it up with a win over James Richardson and a demolition of Darren Webster.

All in all, it’s been a dream tournament for Lewis, whatever happens from here. However, 2017 didn’t exactly go according to plan for the 26-year-old, as it looked like he wouldn’t be qualifying for the PDC World Championships.

On October 11, he took to social media to express his frustrations.

“Well that’s an end to a very very poor year. Really disappointed in myself not qualifying for the worlds this year for the first time since joining the PDC.

“Have one more chance at the qualifiers next month, but what will be will be there. Never felt so frustrated but only have myself to blame. Had a dreadful start to the year. Still confident my time will come though!”

That tweet has aged quite well!
