Phil Taylor is on a redemption tour that will take him to another title at the World Matchplay.
On Thursday, Taylor advanced to the semifinals by beating Justin Pipe after averaging 104.38 for the match. He won 16-10.
After a dramatic win in the round previous, the 13-time champion advanced with relative ease. However, this was close through the first 11 legs. Pipe even hit 10 180s and two 11-darters in the contest, but still couldn't last the distance.
Taylor obviously knows how to handle big stages, and the spotlight has never been on him as brightly as it is right now. I expect him to rise to the occasion like he has so many times before and win this tournament.
That will speak for louder than any quotes he could ever utter.
