And if that happens, Dutch superstar Michael Van Gerwen will not be surprised at all.

It is Suljovic's ninth appearance at the championship and he arrives here after the best year of his darts career, which included being runner-up at the European Championship in Hasselt in October where he lost 11-1 to Van Gerwen.

But after the first TV final of his career, Van Gerwen was quick to heap praise on him and said: "Mensur is the most underestimated player in the PDC. He is a top class player. This was his first final but he is someone we have to look for."

Tonight Suljovic will meet another Dutchman, Ron Meulenkamp, in the first round as the No 8 seed after powering his way into the world's top 10 this year.

His run of form has also seen win his first ranking title, with his victory on the European Tour.

And in Hasselt, Serbian-born Suljovic produced the best performance of his career as he beat Phil Taylor 10-3 in the quarter-finals, ending with an average of 105.50, and then defeated Peter Wright 11-8 in the semis before Van Gerwen proved too good.

Suljovic said: "I am not disappointed. I am happy to have made the final."

Now for the next step, for a player who has never been past the third round, which he has reached in 2011 and last year.

James Wade against Ronny Huybrechts will follow this match before Robert Thornton, the No 9 seed and 2015 quarter-finallist, faces the winner of the preliminary match between Austrian Zoran Lerchbacher and England's Simon Stevenson.
