If he keeps that attitude , he will likely be in for a shock!
Typical MVG ego, Jeffery gave him a little challenge , willl see if the road ahead is a little less pampered-although, I think he is lucky to have Rapid Ricky as his next counterpart.

Oh, he definitely does have an ego.   I've not heard him say many times that his opponent played great and was the better man when he gets beat.   Even when he loses, it's always about him.

As for Rapid Ricky, I've said it before and I'll say it again, he's his own worst enemy with that style of throw, especially when on outs.    When it clicks for him, it looks great, but more often than not, it just doesn't work and he misses that crucial double----- often at the wrong time in the match.   It seems to be more evident when he's got to switch from one side of the board to the other for the double.   I'm not saying he's got to pull a Rob Cross pause, wipe the hand on his pants leg 2-3 time before throwing, but just a few seconds to get the range and his bearings may just prove a good thing for the guy.

I think he's more hung up on being known as the fastest player in the PDC, and that is really not working out for him with wins being few and far between.

Indeed, good points, gotta agree I wish Ri my would take a step back or pause when he’s switching.
Nick-name is set, don’t worry about super speed , concentrate for the wins.

MVG made quick work out of Evans in their match. Skunked Rapid Ricky in a cake walk of a match. The last couple legs saw Evans throw even faster than normal and the scoring showed with lots of errant darts. It looked like he knew his fate and was just looking to end it and get off the stage.

Mensur in the man in Austria. Lots of happy countrymen in the audience watching him take the title against MVG in the finals by a score of 8-7.

Indeed, match seemed to be MVG’s but Mensur came back to even and then win.

Nice for the Austrian crowd and Mensur in this inaugural tournament.

Missed the final because PDC-TV crapped out counting down to the match.  Over I went to the BDO matches, and and never left.  But nice to hear Mensur pulled off the win.
