James wade dating helen chamberlain jay kenneth johnson dating shelley hennig

Wade won the 2009 Premier League Darts tournament, defeating Mervyn King 13–8 at the Wembley Arena.

However, he failed to defend his UK Open title in 2009 after losing to Peter Manley 9–8 in the third round.

He played John Part in the last 8 and raced into a 3–1 lead before the Canadian won three sets in a row.

In the semi-finals he came back from 1–5 down to beat Roland Scholten 19–17 in extra legs, as a player is required to win the match by two clear legs in the Matchplay.

In the final he played Phil Taylor but despite being 8–5 up, he lost 18–11.

Four days later, he won his second major tournament inside a week by defeating Taylor 6–5 in the 2010 Championship League Darts final.

Wade reached another major final in 2010 at the Grand Slam, seeing both Terry Jenkins and Mervyn King squander match darts against him before Wade himself threw away an 8–0 lead against BDO player Scott Waites as Waites won 16–12.

Wade also won the next PDC major tournament – the World Grand Prix in Dublin in October beating van Barneveld by 5 sets to 1 in the semi-finals and once again denying Jenkins his first major title in the final by winning 6–3.
