Jose de Sousa has continued his rapid ascent with’ The Special One ‘and survived another comeback to get past Michael Smith and reach the Grand Slam semi-finals on debut with a 16-14 win.

De Sousa was 8-3 ahead and appeared to be cruising but let Smith make a brilliant comeback to fend off a tense final part of the game and it was the Portuguese ace that made it 22-180 between them won in a classic tie.

De Sousa got off to an excellent start in the process, as did against Chisnall. He doubled his lead with an 84 checkout early and was 4-1 in the break with five missed darts in doubles during the fifth stage, which turned out to be costly.

Smith missed more darts and De Sousa hit a second 180 from there and doubled six to move 5-1. Smith started getting his legs down the board 6-2, but two consecutive 180s and a box office of 81 stopped his first comeback in his tracks.

He sat 8-2 at break, which begs the question of whether De Sousa could win from here or whether Smith would make a comeback.

It was the latter. De Sousa made a mess when they got back and Smith broke off with a ’68 till to make it 8-3.

Four legs in a row followed for Smith as he went 8-6 behind him and really began to test the Special One’s resolve. That comeback was almost complete when Smith trailed 8-7 during the break.

Smith was on the same level 8-8 and while De Sousa stopped the rot, Smith led a brilliant foray with a ten-darter and a ninth 180 and double 20 for the first time.

From there, De Sousa went back and forth, although he made it with a break and hold between 13 and 12 as he tried to finish what he had started.

But Smith himself crashed into the first ton plus box office in a 129 to hold and make it 13-13. One hold made it 14-13 to De Sousa as it took him two more holds to get through.

After De Sousa sat at 35 for a break, Smith pinned a 71 cash register to hold it and bring it to 14-14. Smith pressured the De Sousa with a 180 but missed a 102 box office for a break.

De Sousa came back to stop between 3pm and 2pm and walk away. Smith missed three to keep his throw, and De Sousa stuck a till and let out emotion as he crossed the border.
