Who the Hell is Mensur Suljović?

Austria is probably best known for its castles, architecture and of course Mozart.

But not its darts.

However, perhaps that has changed thanks to one man.

46-year-old Mensur Suljović may actually be Serbian born but the man himself resides in Vienna and plays under the Austrian flag.

That is certainly to the nations benefit as Suljovic has come to the fore in the last five years and lit up the PDC.

Despite having been present on the darts circuit across the BDO and now PDC since 1999, a string of consistent performances since 2015 has lifted Suljovic to his current world ranking of eighth with the 2017 Champions League title a particular highlight.

However, it was 2018 that turned Suljovic to consistent journeyman to serious contender.

BIG 2018

Fresh after winning the Champions League and Players Championship in Dublin in 2017, the Serbian-cum-Austrian entered 2018 in buoyant mood.

Three semi-finals came throughout the year at PDC Premier events in the World Grand Prix, Grand Slam of Darts and the Masters and a final berth at the BetVictor World Matchplay.

Gary Anderson eventually defeated Mensur in the final 21-19 but the Austrian banked himself a cool £55,000 and a seriously enhanced reputation.

However, better was still to come as Suljovic overcame Dimitri Van den Bergh 8-2 at May’s German Darts Masters for his first Premier title of the year.

Suljovic did not slow down and a month later the 46-year-old was back on the winner’s rostrum yet again at the Danish Open in June to make it two big wins on tour for the year.

World Championships

On the circuit, there are few players as consistent as Suljovic, however, the World Championships remain a sore point for the Austrian.

Having never progressed beyond the last sixteen, one of the main targets will be to reach the latter stages of the tournament and show the world he plans to be around for a long time yet.

PDC tour players you have been warned, Mensur Suljović is coming to get you in 2019.
