Double topless? No Way!


QUEEN of the oche Anastasia Dobromyslova vowed last night: I won't be getting my kit off!

The Russian beauty posed for her sexiest pictures yet this week to launch the new PDC Women's world championship.

The former world champ is determined to be remembered for her double tops and NOT taking off her tops.

Ana, 25, said: "I don't want to be the darts version of Anna Kournikova who was just known for her body and not winning tennis matches.

"I've been a world champion and I've beaten male rivals from the top 20 in the world, I've proved enough without taking my clothes off.

"I'm happy if it helps promote the women's game but playing darts is the most important thing to me."

Ana, now based in Ellesmere Port, caused a sensation at the end of last year by becoming the first women to beat a top 20 ranked male rival, Vincent van der Voort, live on TV at the Grand Slam.

Now she is focused on regaining her world crown. Since leaving the BDO for the PDC she has been unable to play in the women's world championship - but now can go for the richest ever female prize in the first-ever PDC showpiece.

The winner now gets 10,000 and qualification starts in May at 20 new Rileys Darts Zones around the UK - including both Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

The final will be played live on Sky Sports before the World Matchplay Final in Blackpool on July 25.

Ana added: "It's still very difficult to play against men because the pressure is huge. It's always very tense for both players but I hope the novelty is starting to wear off now and I'm just treated like any other player.

"I really want to be women's world champion again but I also want to make my mark on the PDC against the men.


"It's going to be exciting to see so many new women enter the world championship in the UK - I'm sure the standard will be really high.

Maybe in five years' time we could have a woman win the Ladbrokes World Championship at the Alexandra Palace even against the men.

"It might sound mad - but five years ago people would have laughed to say a woman would beat a top 20 ranked male."
