Another big title for Ana!

Another big title for Ana!

Anastasia Dobromyslova has won her 5th big tournament of a fantastic 2014.

She produced a brilliant display to beat Holland's Aileen de Graaf in the final of the England Open on Sunday.

Team Unicorn's three times World Champion has been in breathtaking form all year and she adds this victory to her wins at the Dutch Open, Scottish Open, German Open and Welsh Open.

Ana wins £2,000 as she closes in on the World's No.1 spot.

It's her second England Open title at Selsey....she won it back in 2012.

It really was a great final as Anastasia came from 1-3 down to win 4-3. "I am delighted because I played my best darts when I needed to. Aileen pushed me but I never give up!" she said.

De Graaf took out a terrific 157 finish to win the opening leg with the Unicorn lady sat on 'tops'. Ana hit a 180 but missed D16 to level and her opponent was full of confidence.

But from 1-3 down a 61 finish gave Ana some hope. She had to rely on De Graaf missing one dart at D20 for the match in the sixth leg.....and in the decider Anastasia won it with a two dart 61 check-out on D18.

What a performance.....an 88 average and 4/6 on the doubles. It was a big improvement on her semi-final win over Claire Ball. Ana won the match 4-2 but missed 27 darts at doubles!

Ball by the way, had beaten Unicorn star Irina Armstrong 3-1 in the 2nd Round.

Anastasia saw off close friend Lorraine Winstanley in the quarter-finals. But her and Lorraine teamed up to win the Ladies Pairs earlier in the day. They beat Sue Gulliver and Paula Jacklin 3-1 in the final.

She is THE form player in the ladies game at the moment.
