As he sets his sights on winning a key title that is person since 2014 adrian Lewis is feeling refreshed following his summertime.
The two-time world winner has suffered a 2019 much, but he’s confident of recapturing his form this season as he aims a third victory in the Alexandra Palace.
The mercurial Stoke-on-Trent celebrity won his PDC ranking title in March since April 2017 , defeating Raymond van Barneveld to win a Players Championship occasion in Barnsley.
‘Jackpot’ has been not able to build on that achievement and he’s failed to proceed beyond the semi-finals of any PDC position occasion .
“I think I’ve had an up and down year,” Lewis told Sky Sports.
“I won a Pro Tour, I’ve created a number of semi’s and finals but as a whole it could be better, I have only got to keep working at it actually.
“This is the time in which you would like to start hitting top form now, this can be the time you have to work extremely hard in building up towards the World Championships, there is that lots of TV tournaments currently coming up”
His performances in televised events have been particularly underwhelming, although Lewis has shown glimpses of his brilliant best this term.
He’s failed to register a victory in a Significant TV event this year, enduring opening round exits at the Experts, UK Open and World Matchplay from Peter Wright, Jamie Lewis and Glen Durrant respectively.
The next major televised tournament on the calendar is October’s World Grand Prix in Dublin, a tournament because reaching the last in which Lewis hasn’t progressed.
As he bids to finish his inaugural drought, with a collection of large tournaments around the horizon, the world champion is confident of adding another title to his haul and climbing back up the positions.
“My goal is merely to jump as high as I can from the ranks really,” the former Premier League star said.
“I am sitting at number 15 now, I am not actually defending anything from today before the World Championship, so keep moving up today.
“I’ll find out if I can pinch a tiny TV championship here or there, then the Worlds. You must get yourself.
“If you can not get yourself for you shouldn’t be enjoying. That is the biggest one the Worlds, next is the World Matchplay and then you’d have to mention the Premier League I presume.”
Lewis was defending 30,000 in prize money at the Matchplay by virtue of reaching the and his defeat to Durrant watched him relinquish his place from the planet’s best 16 – a place he has reclaimed.
“Clearly I was defending the semi-final of this World Matchplay which knocked me losing to Glen [Durrant] from the very first round,” the 34-year-old added.
“It was a difficult draw but they are all tough draws. It depends on in the event you develop then you’ve got a opportunity, or even you do not win.
“I think that the averages are fairly similar to that which they have been throughout but the odd game people are knocking at 110 and 115’s. That is happening on a regular basis now.”
But while some of the most important titles of the PDC were rival Down Under about the World Series circuit’Jackpot’ appreciated some time off from the game and he’s returned feeling refreshed.
Lewis, who marked his return to activity using another round defeat to Cameron Menzies in the Austrian Darts Championship of past weekend, believes it is essential to get the balance.
“Clearly all of the boys had been over in the World Series where I took five weeks off enjoying,” he explained.
“I’d just had two hours before last weekend, however, this is where I begin building up today.
“It’s very important to spend some time with your family. You have got to find the ideal balance. You’ll then burn , When it’s all darts.
“I think then break everyone wishes to get back to it and find a little normality back to your life.”
