Anderson’s Matchplay
For Gary Anderson to defend his matchplay title, as 4th seed he may have to beat Aspinal (13th seed), Smith (5) MVG (1) and Cross (2), and an unseeded player first round. That is such a tough draw but also shows the depth of quality at the moment.

With this luck the first round will be Durrant.

If he got through all of those and won it would be a phenomenal effort
Most players would say they don't care about their route and it would be all bravado but Gary legitimately won't care. If he did care he wouldn't have skipped the last Players Championship weekend. If he had turned up that weekend he would only have needed a couple of wins to go above Gurney and into the opposite half to MVG but Gary looks at every tournament the same, he will try to beat the man in front of him and if he does he'll try to beat the next guy etc etc.
With the amount of non seeds playing well, that route could look really different as well. I can easily see 7-8 seeds losing first round.
