Day one of the Tokyo Masters is complete, with all the PDC stars making it through the opening round. In fairness, none of the seeds had to get out of second gear, as the local talent failed to test them. World number one Michael van Gerwen was showing some signs of rust, following his holiday in Thailand after the Shanghai Masters. Van Gerwen dropped three legs against Masumi Chino, on his way to a 6-3 victory. Snakebite Peter Wright whitewashed Chikara Fujimori. In total, the seeds only lost ten legs between them, but now the hard work starts for them in the quarter-finals tomorrow.
