we're the best of the best this is the ppa tour well the ppa tour is excited to be in cincinnati ohio for the varied wealth management open and the lintner family tennis center not.

Tennis this week it is all about the professional pickleball association and day two of tennis channel's coverage about to get underway we had a very fun day with day one all singles play but we're going to split the script a little bit and turn to pro mix doubles welcome inside the tennis channel studios everybody dave bends alongside dave.

Fleming let's talk about mixed doubles because it's a lot different than what you saw in singles yesterday i think a lot of pickleball players are more familiar with personally playing doubles so probably can relate a little bit more to what they're going to see yeah the tennis channel audience probably is more familiar with what we saw yesterday that.

Being single so it looks a little more like tennis mixed doubles much different than what we saw yesterday you will see the male player being very aggressive you're going to see them coming over and taking balls on the woman's side of the court they're trying to find up angles they're trying to find patterns that affect the other team and the male who.

Is really dominant can do that but these ladies aren't backing down from anybody they make the difference in mixed doubles and it's truly one of the rare pro sports where mixed doubles is not just a thing it might be the most popular thing in pickleball this is going to be a great day the two teams to keep an eye on especially a lot of good.

Teams but the teams you're really going to want to keep an eye on lucy kovalova and matt wright who are a team not only on the court but also off the court and then you've got the number one ranked team in the world anna lee waters and ben johnson ben johns i have a feeling to have a little bit of a chip on his shoulder after it didn't go so well on.

Thursday no he didn't even make the semis of singles what how did that happen so yes he's going to be motivated anna lee is always motivated so that that team has been absolute money they've only lost one time all season long and jessie irvin who does not play singles oh is she playing well she is paired up with jay devilier the flying.

welcome to the ppa beard wealth management open the greater cincinnati area and linder family tennis center it's mixed doubles day and first up on championship court we have callan dawson as well as megan dizon taking on.

Two utahns elise jones and spencer smith i'm johnny pickleball andrews and joined with me in the booth today is none other than kyle mckenzie how's it going johnny happy to be here man excited to watch the best in the world put on a show for us here looks like we're getting started and spencer smith right off the get-go.

Find in the middle and all these players very familiar with one another as uh three out of the four of them come from utah and obviously elise jones and megan dezan have been double partners for quite some time now it looks like everybody's just feeling each other outside.

Trying to play the patient game we've seen just a couple of pop-ups that have been taken advantage of and like you mentioned johnny very familiar with each other's games be interested to see what uh what tactics each team looks to employ here early 002. jones coming up a little short on that one unable to execute.

Just kind of first first few points here just get him out of the way to see how aggressive he chooses to be in this match given that it's mixed doubles generally the male player looks to take more uh offensive chances early in the points that's gonna be a tough hands battle won by colin dawson.

And uh played count a few times and mixed doubles and he does love to drive the third shot and then crash so as you saw in that last point i assume if he gets the third you're going to see that quite frequently you know i think um it's all going to come down to mostly elise and the.

Quality of her counter punching if she's hurting him with that first volley i could see him slowing down but it appears that he's getting uh you know more of a neutral volley where he likes his chances moving forward second server little ernie on display there from callan great athleticism.

0-2-2 and spencer smith able to get that one down as now spencer and elise jones get on the board one two two and not a good idea all over that with her two-handed backhand yeah sometimes when you attack.

Uh locations are a little bit higher on your opponents you can jam them but when they have a two-handed backhand they generally cover those higher areas quite a bit better and megan had no problem in that ball second server two one two missing just long on that return there.

Looks like we're knotted up at two here three one two three one apology and spencer smith getting a nice little roll with that forehand right the right at the feet of megan design yeah great example of you know he actually took a little place off that shot to get that ball down.

More of an effective strategy when you've got your opponent's back like that and here comes spencer smith flying in hitting the left hip of kalin dawson not just swinging away but precisely putting the ball on a specific spot to jam the player two three one just a little wide there from calan.

Three three one hmm and there's callan dawson flying across the kitchen you'll see it here it's a replay there he goes hitting the right shoulder of elise jones she's unable to get out of the way or even get the paddle on that correctly two on the ernie count for callan so far great lead by spencer.

Certainly more of a traditional mixed doubles point there the ladies in that common forehand beforehand pattern i'd say so far we've seen a lot of moving the ball around not as much isolation but we'll see where the match takes us as it progresses here three four one second server.

Just a little short on the drop there attempt from from callan three four two and spencer smith trying to reach in get that ball back over to megan dezan trying to get the roll once again unable to succeed that time you see each player kind of playing to each each of their own personal.

Strengths right now inside out yeah absolutely i think uh you know when you think about the contrast and styles even though they're doubles partners uh at least i would say at least is more of the setup player megan has a little bit more finishing power so it's going to be that battle of.

Weapons versus that consistency and that defensive scrappiness today 442. successful first lob of the day from elise jones recognizing that that left shoulder was available for the lob even if she leaves it a little short has a good chance of getting a weak response.

Nice little momentum build here for spencer and elise see if they can keep it four two uh dawson actually baited elise jones to go behind him and he she sure did but set it up nicely for herself nice little one-two combo i think it's a play she's gonna have to use even if it doesn't.

Work every time callan's known for uh choking up on the paddle with his grip means he's got very fast hands around his body but he can be exposed when he starts to stretch for that backhand great one two one two combo there from elise and catching them backing up is spencer smith and all of a sudden being down.

Early just by a little bit obviously that made a nice run here up 8-4 in game one great finish by ken you know one play that i i wouldn't mind to see megan using a little bit more is um when elise's drop is landing in the kitchen she's usually letting it bounce and choosing to simply dink it back i do.

Think that she has the ability and the skill set to look to use what we call a step back shot and look to make at least work a little longer in that mid-court transition area dawson trying to get in there get involved a little little ambitious move there but trying to get to the right side of elise.

Jones once again so we've figured out where wants to go yeah absolutely absolutely i think it's the right idea just the ball ended up being just a touch lower than he was hoping oh great cover great cover i think what we're starting to see organically is as the ladies are now staying more disciplined in the the.

Pattern of forehand beforehand the gentlemen are now creeping over looking to cover middle looking to insert themselves a little bit more but that does leave court open behind them try it out eight five one and just hitting the bottom part of her paddles megan desjardins couldn't get.

Under that ball nice attack again from elise and spencer 951 and that ball is really just coming off megan dezan's paddle just hot hot this morning no and you know i think what helps generate that error is elise's court positioning but her disconnecting and looking to put pressure uh it limits.

The target on that first volley from callan and megan looking to make some adjustments to potentially force a game three as elise jones and spencer smith had a nice run to finish out game one yeah they found the momentum about midway through and kept it to solidify that game one that's fantastic so johnny pickleball.

But megan dawson hopefully we'll see if they can make some adjustments to force that game three and here we go side out i thought it was a much better first point there for megan is on she made a few dink errors last game.

She minimized her risk and really looking to extend some of these points and make make her opponents earn everything they get here what an exchange what a point from all four players elise jones spencer smith hanging on as long as they can and coming up with some amazing gets but callan dawson one zero one both all four.

Players having great hands in that rally great example of why pickleball's so addicting great point showcased a little bit of everything there second server yeah i like the idea from uh megan is on there i think that's one of the situations where when you disconnect you put pressure on your opponents but you want to have that.

Discipline when they get the ball back at your feet sometimes when you're staggered to let that ball go for your partner and there's calendar once again trying to drive the third shot set himself up or his partner for an even better one zero one one.

It's the risk you take when you play that third shot drive you're looking to put pressure on that volume but if they stick it just right sometimes they can get a clean winner or certainly get the advantage in the point early that's a great ball movement from spencer smith moving it left and right to set himself up to go right behind.

Megan design yeah yeah first time i think that we've seen megan on the left there um spencer was wanting to keep the ball on her and stay in that cross-court backhand backhand pattern and as we said some adjustments were gonna need to be made and uh looks like.

They've already made their first one with pagan having megan design on the left side yeah you know we'll see how long they stick with that or oh nice little atp around the post from spencer smith beautifully measured there by spencer and if you look at elise's court position in her footwork even when.

She's not hitting the ball she's looking to show that ernie attempt to megan is on to limit some of the spots that she's able to dink to right now we're seeing the power volleys come out of megan design with the two-handed backhand before and then now the forehand i don't know if i'd play a lot more drives her way after seeing the.

Quality of those volleys second server one two two and back and forth we go now spencer smith on the receiving end of that one and they switch back it looks like allen dawson back on the left they're going to try to go back to their.

Pattern of cross court and just kind of mix it up it looks like more than anything yeah they may be doing more of a more of a three-quarter stack as well where they don't want when they're returning uh for megan when she's on the left they don't want her to have to cross there maybe just play the point uh on the natural.

Side when she's over there i'll recall the score two two two uh recalled against excuse me two two one so what a point unbelievable play from all four players the defense involved in the resets yeah.

It certainly doesn't take you know it's not a one ball put away sort of match you know it takes great combinations thinking about placement anticipation we've got it all on display here johnny man spencer smith coming up a little short on that one megan did a much better job with her dink she's normally going with backspin.

While elise is using top spin and so far in the match at least has had a more penetrating ball but um megan's doing a better job of getting more depth on her volleys and pushing uh pushing elise back i think you know if i'm in their camp i think that's a big adjustment to make is just not necessarily attack but just be.

More intentional with your dinking to look to dictate more go through the kitchen line and although callan dawson hits that one long term you can tell megan desantis very much settled in with her dinks and it's not just about going to one spot moving it around absolutely.

Yep and a beautiful ernie from colin dawson on our instant replay there he goes and just out of reach of spencer smith i believe that's three for three but to your point johnny i mean there's a way to add variety in your dinner you're going to think the same person sometimes just going to their inside.

Foot is enough to uh take your opponents out of their rhythm they can tend to get grooved when they're playing the same shot over and over again four three two not by much not by much almost got that one to land and spencer smith actually smiling in the middle of that point on uh one of.

The shots that he hit that finally hit the net and brought him in had to refocus but great defense from calendar megan shows how much he's slowing the game down in his mind right he's able to chuckle to himself mid mid fast exchange hits the mid part of the net unable to execute there three four two.

So three four two elise jones to serve yeah nice earning attempt from spencer smith hits the top of the net callan dawson might have been ready if it didn't hit the net but one will never know well that's the risk of you know of dinking up your line and moving the ball around all the spots is.

You know i think when you've got somebody in front of you who's very capable of jumping the kitchen like that you always want to go up the line when they're not expecting it but if you do it at the obvious times sometimes they can catch you later we've seen that happen a few times this match a great recovery there from spencer.

Smith elise jones doesn't probably go where she wants it but uh spencer able to bail that one out a little bit five four two and elise jones and spencer smith retaking the lead here in game two slide out i just have to say i'm i'm very impressed with megan dezan's power yeah.

Yeah it seems to be um i don't remember having that you know i think she has the skill set of choosing to hit her ball a little flatter when she wants to get it through the court and we obviously saw that on the a couple points ago definitely an elite character.

Great clothes there by callan really needed that energy boost for his team here it's crunch time for them now they lost game one it's tight in game two this is where they really need to get there five five two get that lead and keep that momentum and calling sensing that as you said kind of a sense of urgency to to get in.

And crash and provide points and do it quickly and he got the one he wanted i i expect to actually see him continue to uh test elise with that third shot drive if he's not getting hurt on that volley second server five five two and there's once again on display megan.

Dezan's power yeah to your point i mean i i may if i'm spencer and elise i may go away from the third shot drive for a little while i just feel like the quality of her volley is putting them on defense on the very next ball i might opt for the more patient style at least for a little while.

And spencer smith had it set up how he wanted it with the head shaking back and forth as he walks back to his spot they got what they wanted there just unable to execute we've seen a few short lobs uh get a little bit lucky and get the job done and that one's going to go a little wide you can tell so when they had success.

Spencer and elise jones had success in game one it was when they slowed it down they kind of played more patient and on that time they did and they you see the results let's see if they can continue that that's i know yeah i think um it really comes down to the skill set of of megan is on.

You you see the power you see the clean volleys sometimes when you speed a ball up at a counter puncher you're playing into their hands but if you can slow things down make them generate their own offense stretch the points out a little bit sometimes you can make people like that a little bit more uncomfortable.

It's really nice so the first time at least i believe has played that attack to the inside hip of calendar he's normally great at covering that spot but it just shows variety goes a long way especially when you're uh when you're speeding one and spencer smith sitting all over that.

Ball with his forehand and that's gonna tie things up for we had actually seven six corrections seven six one second server seven six two side out and going to the opposite side that time is megan design and having success and again she could have hit.

That ball bigger but she chose to find a location keep it low that would pressure spencer more than just pace alone great choice second server dawson trying once again is chip in charge yeah i like the idea i think callan a few times this match has chosen to drive those short and low returns i think.

When it happens to be low and short probably you'd be better off dropping that ball but you can see the urgency he definitely feels like he has a gain using his power and crashing in behind it 7-6-1 uh recall score 7 7-1.

Got a little mix-up on the score here excuse me recalling it seven seven two okay so we got it figured out we're at seven seven two here in game two inside out 771 oh that's a tough cover it's one thing to get the atp back it's another thing to do something with it to.

Come up with a clean winner there is pretty darn high level from spencer there great point eight seven one counter punching that we talked about ready to go once elise jones speeds it up yeah so funny in these matchups you always have to ask yourself does it make.

More sense for you to pull the trigger first or wait for them to do it and then counter punch it certainly seems like megan's more comfortable when the attack is made at her and she can simply react and uh put those powerful ground strokes on display volleys rather out.

You can see some of these volleys missed from spencer and elise just a little bit from time to time and i think it's because of the pressure that uh callan and megan are putting on them with such great one yeah 100 i feel like you have to do so much more with the ball just a little wide there for megan but.

To your point johnny that's what great defense does right it may um manifest itself later in the match because you feel like you have to do more every single time you hit the ball and calan dawson sliding into that one trying to shake his own bank there it's been a play that certainly worked for him just uh.

At least was able to do enough with that with that first volley one second server and spencer smith coming up a little bit short 972 and elise jones on her paddle 972 side out.

And for those that are a little bit newer to the sport you see that you know when one side is always kind of taking the net right out of the gate the other side is trying to figure out how to get up to the net and neutralize and and get into that point you can do it with aggression you can do it with slowing the game down.

But really that's the first puzzle you're trying to solve second server and megan putting her hands up in the air a little bit wondering how she couldn't make that one just got under it a little too much seven nine two another opportunity here 7-9-2.

Disciplined leave there by megan easier said than done to let those outballs go eight nine two great leave and a comment from elise jones trying to get that momentum back so they can close out this game too nine eight one.

My another opportunity here foreign and looking to go around the post but decides not to spencer was already backing up ready to go and uh elise jones kind of a caught off guard i think she definitely had a ball that she could speed up just uh unable to execute there slightly clip the tape on that one.

and nice little combination back and forth we go spencer smith finally with the overhead put away 8.92 and megan design with the backhand spencer attacking and she's ready excellent coverage and you'll see what she'll do with her body.

There when she finds that big two-hander she'll actually slide her shoulders to the side to create the spacing to be able to really stick that volley and maximize her power well done spencer smith elise jones all tied here nine nine nine nine one big point coming.

You think so nice combination great point from all four players and just like that spencer smith and elise jones have match point see how important of a point that was very quality point from everyone there spencer choosing to stay in that pattern with the cross court backhands.

Trying to finish it with one big swing smith unable to execute surprised we haven't seen the time and great exchange there from all four players spencer smith ready to go as well as megan dezon finally finishing it with her forehand once again proving that she is very very difficult to attack.

Huge point here nine ten two side out and elise jones creating some pressure moving around just to show that she was going to try to ernie and jump the kitchen dawson match point again.

Here and spencer leaves that one after a very patient point for all four players yeah everyone's certainly waiting for that one to kind of build organically talon eventually got the pop-up another opportunity here for spencer smith and elise jones to finish this match.

and that's going to do it on an amazing play great defense from calendars but way too much to overcome 11-9 after going against spencer smith and elise jones who will be moving on quite a first match folks quite a first match we're gonna.

Have a lot more of the best in the world to come here but uh i thought the nerves of steel at the end you can see how patient spencer and elise were to get to close that out absolutely so they're gonna move on and we're gonna be back don't go anywhere johnny pickleball andrews kyle mckenzie.

and welcome back to the ppa beard wealth management open the greater cincinnati area the later family tennis center johnny pickleball andrews on the mic with kyle mckenzie it's mixed doubles day and man we have another one coming we.

Have matt wright lucy kovalova entering center court here and they're to be taking on cam luring and his partner chris diehl so they were able to win their first.

Match cam luring and chris deal were able to take down strasbaugh and bryce alexander 11-11-3 this is the first match for matt wright and lucy kovalova today as they received a buy in the first round based on being the number one seed it's good to be the best right good to.

Be the best and i'm sure this first one you may see a couple errors from out right and lucy kovalova uh may see a few nerves from cam luring and chris deals not every day but what a fun opportunity to play the number one team yeah absolutely i expect each team kind of to feel each other out early on um i'm less familiar with uh.

With cam and um oh chris cam and chris cameron chris obviously uh if you've been in the pickleball world for a while you certainly know matt and lucy the number one seeds here certainly been one of if not the best team in the world for a while and we'll see uh we'll see what they're able.

To pull out early on in their first match here absolutely chris diehl and matt gonna have a good time i know matt lurings from iowa has been kind of kind of new to the game okay and has been uh you know testing out the waters here in the pro world which is great i believe i've seen his name with some decent.

Results in the uh the single side um for those new to pickleball i'd kind of define it as you know you've got your at least from the the male perspective uh mixed doubles almost being a little bit of a hybrid between singles and gender doubles often times the the male player is is expected to take a little more court uh take some more offensive.

Chances maybe use that that powerful drive a little bit more often so we'll see if he can translate some of his single skills into mixed doubles here um sounds like he certainly did that uh to get through in their their first round match yeah matt wright lucy kovalev just gonna get warmed up here to start today.

And see if they can kind of get clicking early on as it's gonna be a long day of mixed doubles uh potentially for both teams you never know yeah and these guys just have to enjoy the opportunity and matt and lucy gotta in their mindset probably just take care of business yeah yeah one johnny you've.

Been the you've been the favorite you've been the underdog what would you be doing if you're uh you know kind of the underdogs the new team in this situation what would you be telling yourself to you know put your best game forward against a very accomplished team here in mountain lucy swing away and go for it.

You know a lot of people come out they play nerves they yeah they try to try to do too much and get away from their own game plan so i'm hopeful for these two and cam luring and chris deal that they just play their game come out and swing away yeah and they can work for him couple net chords you never know the momentum in pickleball what it can do.

For you yeah to your point you can't get caught on your heels right i mean placement's important but if you're just trying to make sure you make every drop or make every dink a team of the caliber of matt and lucy are going to eventually get ahead in those points so i think um a balanced approach is probably their best bet they're going to have to win.

Some kitchen points absolutely but anytime you can get those cheap points with early aggression that can go a long way in in making these uh these elite teams feel pressure you know with the score if you can keep it close they can certainly uh doubt themselves a little bit especially.

When it's a first match you never know if there's a little bit of rust that they have to dust off early on absolutely and one of the other things that uh if i'm playing matt and lucia very season or any other kind of season team one of the best things you can do is because they've been around for a very long time they're very textbook.

Right and so if you can be unpredictable that's true it's gonna be fantastic and a beautiful venue here at linder family tennis center everybody starting to file in around the courts around the center court here as there's plenty of plenty of pickleball courts that they.

Put in yes my first time here got in last night and it definitely has an indian wells type feel to it i mean one of the most beautiful spread out venues it's very comfortable um great for viewing and this is where pickleball should be you know we're able to watch the best in the world here in a in a fantastic venue excited to get things.

Going that's right our lead referee marisa de peralta is going to be bringing the players in and our second referee the one and only don stanley so he's going to be off to the side making sure all is good and our lead referee marissa.

De peralta will be uh getting the pre-game introduction stuff completed so we can get on to this best two out of three 211 and it looks like matt and lucy are gonna be serving first game one zero zero one side out.

Zero zero one yeah that ball is going to go a little long so yeah the shorts actually got the early air on the return there and you can see on the instant replay here matt writes oh sorry backhand taking care of business right at the feet cam lurik 102. gonna come up short on that one.

And if you can't hear it already a little bit of wins is starting to creep in not really going to fight too much with these four players down on center court as lucy cola comes in with that forehand just to jam chris deal one one boy lucy seems to have a conscious.

Strategy right now of wanting to drive that third ball looks like she's testing the counter punching skills early on here hi three one one five what calling a kitchen fault although the ball had bounced in the.

Kitchen prior so camp luring was actually okay so we're gonna for those newer to the sport you can only um get called for a fault in the kitchen if you're hitting a volley out of the air once that ball bounces you absolutely can step into that kitchenair and hit your ball.

Yeah that returns gonna sail along four one one kind of come around and curl that backhand just curls it right down to the bottom of the net unable to get under it so matt wright to serve four one two around the post see it right here and there she goes cam luring unable to handle that one standard play is going.

Cross court with those dinks but if you pull it out wide too far you're vulnerable for that around the post shot from your opponents trying to come across the body of lucy kovalova that one just out of his reach one five one.

Gets them jammed and matt cleans it up from there yeah point had a little bit of everything but again the quality of lucy's two-handed backhand counter punch is what really got them ahead in that point they're able to pull it out side up five one one great deceptive play there from lucy.

Kovalev able to go behind cam luring six one one and matt and lucy often rolling here game one six one one second soon as i say that one goes long so another opportunity here to keep going and madame lucia's are certainly coming out firing they're driving the ball at a.

Very high frequency here we'll see if they end up slowing things down but seems to be working so far so why change a good thing able to get that volley to go behind matt wright yeah oftentimes in mixed doubles you will see one player usually the male player sliding over to cover more balls.

In the middle it does leave them vulnerable and again matt and lucy coming out on top in that exchange just jamming the players chris came luring unable to get that ball over multiple times finally got another clean look just.

Probably got a little too excited yeah i think it's i know when i started pickleball it's tempting to take some of your finishing shots cross court but very easy to pull wide when you have that opportunity and maybe thinking about that last one was chris dilla she misses another one unable to execute.

Seven one one boy and matt wright just closing quickly and that's why planting yourself in the middle of the court over time is the right strategy more often than not the ball comes right back to you and you can continue to dictate uh right in the center there.

Second serve and matt kind of thought he was going to be able to pull that one off and he held it well it certainly was open didn't miss it and that one's going to be called a little wide as he tried to get the atp correction side out.

Maybe around the post for matt right and so we're gonna have a side out here and see if can do anything but until then they're gonna have the timeout taken and think about it and we're not we're not gonna go too far here but we'll be back right after this johnny pickleball kyle mckenzie.

We're returning from a timeout taken from camp luring and chris deal as they look to get some get some momentum here and the crowd is behind them trying to get some points going here against the number one team number one seed today lucy kovalova and matt wright looks like a referee time out here one.

Okay second turn and chris deal knowing she set that one up just a little high to matt's backhand he's able to place that ball where he wants it so matt certainly known for his backhand punch he's not going to have a problem putting that one away side out.

Hey one looks like we might have a formation change from cam and chris here normally um in mixed doubles putting the female player on the right side but it looks like uh okay never mind they're keeping me guessing as well chris deal may have been guessing on.

That one as well um game one matt ryan and cam and chris are gonna look to possibly force to give him three we'll see yeah they're gonna have to make some adjustments absolutely that's right don't go anywhere we'll be back right.

Nurex.com to get started and welcome back to the lindner family tennis center here in the greater cincinnati area the ppa baird wealth management open we have the number one seed matt wright lucy kovalova taking on cam luring and chris diehl and we're about to start game two.

Here we go and matt wright all over that one to start quick side out so i love uh cam and chris's body language obviously they lost the you know the first game handily but they're smiling they're having fun they're just taking in the moment and we've got nothing to lose here i'd like to see them swing free and go for their.

Shots really the two adjustments if i'm in their camp would be quality of their return more depth and really sticking that first volley to make matt and lucy work for their points a little bit more in this game oh great touch and great fight there by chris she was.

Behind in that point but she stayed in there fought off a lot of tough shots and they've got the serve back here zero zero one second serve man unable to convert there it's ken luring as he'll be ready to serve but you can kind of tell that the crowd is starting to pull for them to get some.

Points absolutely even though we saw an error there i'm liking their body language they seem to be moving their feet quite well they seem to be playing a little bit freer it's good to see and matt wright able to utilize that backhand once again that one clipping the tape.

But still landing in one zero one second and swinging a miss you can see cam feeling that need to be aggressive it's a it's a fine line that you have to walk if he thinks too much with matt matt may have the advantage there so he's picking his ball looking to implement his willpower.

Seems like that's been a common drive location kind of that right hip of chris she's mishit several of those volleys once again hitting that spot kyle just like you said yeah matt and lucy we've got plenty of match experience when they find uh any sort of a hole they're going to keep going there.

Which allows matt wright as you can see on a replay to go right behind him five zero two thank you repeat five zero two and all of a sudden with a blink of an eye it's here comes the first time out from cam.

Luring and chris deal so they're going to go and talk about it matt and lucy looking to continue their process forward but we'll give it a second we'll be back right after this with the intelligent control of.

All-wheel drive and the power of a 2.5 liter turbo engine there's no limit to the places the 2022 sorrento can take you and to the stories waiting for you when you get there the world's first storytelling machine the 2022 sorrento.

Kia movement that inspires there's a reason every odyssey is named after the odyssey because the world's most famous story isn't about staying put it's about being there so for those who want a story to tell you find out who you are.

We have a world full of places to start and welcome back the crowd ready to get started again johnny pickleball andrews and kyle mckenzie six zero two six zero two matt right to serve unable to get that flick so great timeout.

Used it at the right time build a little momentum here second server yeah you see the quality of the return there from lucy she's getting great depth great penetration through the court pushing cam back on his heels unable to make the drop there tough tough you know i've certainly been in camera chris's position playing you.

Know people that are big favorites and i think it's it's so easy from a shot selection standpoint to try to do too much if they can really uh compartmentalize and just think how can they get to the kitchen and then how can they keep their opponents off the kitchen for as long as possible i think that'll really help them get into this.

Match a little bit more that's gonna be a great shot from this deal painting the line six zero two and matt and lucy looking to add to their lead here and the crowd appreciates that little unlucky bounce for cam and chris.

But nice beautiful setup for lucy kovalev yeah anytime that ball hits the net makes that around the post shot usually just a little bit easier lucy able to execute there by cam able to kind of jam lucy a little bit sitting on that backhand grip anytime you see her take that two.

Third shot drop with top spin mat unable to convert 172. as they get on the board set up and lucy once again finding that spot of chris deal on the right hip seven one one and they get the side out so 7-1-1.

First third shot lob we've seen i think chris had the ball she was looking for good instincts to kind of turn that into a poached just wasn't able to convert eight one one and defense almost leading to offense matt getting you know known to be a little more creative with his shot selection than some of the other top.

Pros certainly putting the whole toolbox on display here a little bit of emotion shown from cam luring as he sticks that volley trying to get himself going here as they get the serve back one eight seconds there looks like that's his preferred drive is that that two-handed backhand.

Stroke most people would uh would probably prefer the forehand a little a little unique in that way with a nice one-two combo first ball setting up the next one for an easy put away nine one one and closing in here matt right trying to reset that ball.

A great aggressive choice there by cam he could have just dinked that ball back chose to take the fight looking for the attack from cam but it decides to go with matt wright who wasn't necessarily expecting that one nine one second sir.

Great job finding the feet there by matt was able to get that ball actually behind chris cam just leaves that drop up a little high and lucy has plenty of finishing power able to get that one through nine one one nine one two.

And that one not able to go over but you got to imagine if that ball goes over lucy covalvo probably was just going to wait and do another round of fights i think that's in her arsenal johnny better point by chris though i think that she was losing a lot of the points early with that third shot drive she's getting better depth on her return she's.

Sticking the volley a little bit better and uh anytime you can make your opponents beat you in a different way you gotta feel good about that great setup by chris and easy put away for cam so still alive here see if they can build on that momentum get a couple more points here.

Second turn one ten two and unable to finish that as they go ahead and add another point here so let their journey begin it's never over until it's over and pick a ball there's no shot clock no clock that's gonna run out you always have a chance great touch silky smooth touch by matt.

Wright putting it all on display here ten two one board game match and that's gonna do it just like that level one eleven two the number one seed looking like the number they can beat you in so many different ways.

Was able to use offense early and often in this match and that got the job done that's right guys don't go anywhere more mixed pro doubles coming at you we'll see you soon you see.

Management open johnny pickleball andrews on the mic with kyle mckenzie uh we have a match-up coming we have the number two seed now gonna be on center court that's right ben johns and anna lee waters taking center stage here they're gonna be taking on salome davidsey and her partner mariano yi.

And these guys just got done with a nice long battle to take on the number two seed uh they were able to beat kelly balder and steven marie post and uh that was 11 1 9 11 12 10 in the third to earn the right to play the number two seed here today and uh annaleigh waters and singles obviously making it to the finals uh which will championship sunday.

So she looked unstoppable yesterday playing lights out i mean this really is the match of uh you know having to go through two phenoms uh here with annalee and ben both considered at the top of the game um respectively and so when they combine it's it's they don't lose often johnny they don't lose often so it'll be a lot.

Of fun for us to uh watch the very best show us how it's done here so uh congrats to salome is that correct salome and uh it's mariano salome so i'm like quite an accomplished singles player on the ppa tour already i believe she got the bronze yesterday was able to take.

Down catherine parento a couple of times which is no easy feat gonna be definitely a different style of play switching to doubles here um but i think like in the last match i think that they're coming in as the underdogs i think you want to swing free play to your strengths early and really i think what pickleball's shown is that anything.

Can happen on a given day that's right and they're gonna have it their work cut out for them for sure but we're gonna let them warm up here and get underway very soon don't go anywhere you're not gonna want to miss this one we'll be back right after this united healthcare offers low to no cost.

More so and really fill the seats out this is great pro pickleball association knowing how to get the fan base out here yeah yeah beautiful day for pickleball more fans are filling in we've got the music going party atmosphere ready for some uh some amazing pickleball here.

all right ben johns with this michael phelps warm up getting the shoulders nice and loose that's right ready to put that ben john's power on display here game one all right will's real two oh.

to be able to implement her will and and thread some needles on some attacks and i'm sure we'll see more and more of that as the match keeps going second serve and that ball hitting the top of the post and eventually landing out zero zero two.

Point and this return there from mariano ben john's of course sponsored by yola looks like three out of the four players on the court are using that uh looks like the same villa paddle boy sullivan.

Putting that ball just a little wide she definitely had some space down ben's alley just slightly over rotated on that two-handed great idea though only a couple of points in and annalee's already shown she can play that forehand up your line she can slide it back through the middle very challenging.

Covering the spots when when she's able to be that accurate boy and going down the line to mariano once again he's had to go back and forth now line middle line he's just trying to know where to go four zero two guessing game out there.

Ben johns gets in on the action for a second anna lee with a great leave and uh the number two seed kind of going back to the singles repertoire for a little bit yeah certainly an unconventional shot selection there doubles i think you'll.

See a lot of top players use one drive but it's rare that they'll drive multiple balls in the row if their opponents are up at the net oh a great little windmill finish from mariano 0-6-1.

Trying to get under that ball once again to perform another drive unable to zero and so mariano to serve at zero six there goes that opportunity don't wanna give the number two seed too many too many freebies and ben john's with a tag you're it and it's so tough to balance you know.

Patience with aggression and doubles i would say salome certainly has some beautiful ball striking but if you want to slow a few down it might lead to that surprise element when she does speed it up could enhance some of her offense second serve let's see great overheads there for mariano yeah really great hang time and rotation and uh just.

Absolutely a lot to like there and that one may look like a routine error but uh you know really it's uh ben's court presence that's actually creating that error because he's moving to the middle it's shrinking the sides of the court for salome and easy to make those errors when your target gets smaller like that.

Slide out and ben john's just coming up a little short hitting the top of the tape that's gonna be a much needed side out and uh until then though we're gonna go to a tv timeout give these players some time to chat about it johnny pickleball andrew scott mckenzie don't go anywhere.

We'll be right back after this with the intelligent control of all-wheel drive and the power of a 2.5 liter turbo engine there's no limit to the places the 2022 sorento can take you and to the stories waiting for you when.

and we are back here on championship court ben john's anna lee waters jumping out to a huge lead here in the opening game one the crowd is ready to go they're giving some love and support to solomon to be and her partner mariano yeah.

Zero eight one as they try to look to get on the board here 0-8-1 second third solid pickup on the first one unable to convert on the second yeah more of a patient point by salome and mariano but you see how challenging to even get to the kitchen line um when you're playing you know some of the.

Best in the world eight zero one boy big drive from annalee waters yeah i was able to get that into the body kind of handcuffed solomon and that was going to sail along and here we go first game point.

10 and 10-0-1 and elitist surgery there she goes unable to handle that as mariano and there goes game one in the books eleven zero so ben jontana lee gonna be switching sides here salome and mariano gonna look to make some adjustments but.

Between the number two seed lee waters and ben johns taking on solomon davidsey i gotta tell you johnny's so cool to to be here i've watched the the western and southern open the tennis tournament that they do here for many years and to see it uh transformed into pro pickleball is a real treat for me.

It's amazing what the pro pickleball association can do and uh what a nice backhand for mariano yeah again recognizing to hit the player closer to him with an offensive shot able to get the uh get the job done there.

Just wasn't able to do enough with the poach and left some court behind him mariana just caught there when you when you're being attacked by opening up the paddle face there you leave yourself a little ball up i would love to see him firm that wrist up a little bit more and uh.

Keep the paddle angle a little more closed is my voice projecting i don't know if you heard me one zero two and john's just rearing back that forehand sitting all over it mariano unable to handle that ball 2-0-2 and they jump out quickly here two.

Zero point and salome davinci on her back foot unable to convert yeah and you see how salome wasn't able to get to the kitchen line after the return there is how hard she's hitting the return of serve if she were to take a little pace off of her return it would give her more.

Time to get up and establish it speaking of getting up right here get up right at the feet of mariano good hang time four zero two slide out ben just missing on the forehand drive there.

Side out zero four one looking to be a little more creative with shot selections maybe trying something new that would enable them to not be so predictable and yeah i mean for me i like to keep it simple you know most of the time i'm either going to play a drop you know.

Which is a softer shot you know in the kitchen trying to work my way up gradually or i'll usually use what i call the drive drop combination where i'll drive the first one and then look to drop from there and ben john's just owning the kitchen line as he smiles back to the baseline of his partner.

Saying thank you for letting me take all of those and you see though they're playing good defense to stay alive when the volleys are that good from your opponents it just puts them under very little pressure unless you're able to get up to the line with them around the post block from anna lee.

And there's ben johns to clean it up mariano's thinking what does it take beautiful around the post shot there handled nicely by anna lee and trying to be too perfect with that shot leads to the unforced zero one and that ball gonna sail along as well and all of a sudden.

Seven zero one seven zero one serve ben just leaves that drop up and mariano able to uh put that ball away at anna lee seven zero two well so it's going to be a let so they'll be replaying next three.

Seven zero two but you see what it takes i mean it was at five six quality fast great volleys in a row to finally get that one through and with that i'll let these players think about it for a minute that's a tv timeout on the way so we'll be back.

Right after this don't go anywhere in the last two years we quadrupled our team at the pace we're growing i couldn't keep up without supercritter they do the legwork and they get my job posting in front of the right candidates i love invite to apply i instantly see great candidates and i can invite them to apply we've hired across all.

Right now they're showing why they are household names in the pickleball world absolutely second sir zero seven two as that's the pressure that ben johns puts on you trying to be perfect you're aiming for small targets when you don't.

Have a lot of time to prepare for your shot very tough there and that ball just not coming up solemn davinci unable to get her feet set in order to get under that ball yeah and choosing to stay back it's a couple times she's chosen to stay back after.

The return i still think their their best bet is to get in the net and make uh ben anderly work to get up there as well second sir great stretch volley by mariano there not able not only able to get there but to do something with it great hands great reflexes.

Eight zero two boy you can kind of hear the the moan of the crowd sometimes when uh sula solomon david or mariano miss a shot even though they they are rooting for ben they want to see the other two players kind of give them give them something here yeah i think fans are just wanting.

You know the best pickleball that they can watch so it's a little more exciting when the score is you know um a little bit more competitive absolutely zero nine one they love an underdog too so we'll see if they can get something going here.

giving a little geometry lesson here great forehand a couple oohs and awesome shots seen a lot of nice things from mariano beautiful drop the way he's moving he's staying aggressive he's staying positive.

They're on the board keep it rolling and that one just gonna sail by him yeah that's where that you know that that multiple drive in a row where you're driving multiple balls that can sometimes leave your partner in a tough spot um if they're caught halfway two one.

Looking forward to it now you'll see it here on instagram try to go behind them and able to just cut that ball yeah great footwork cutting off the angle on that ball nine two two coming out on top of that dink exchange with anna lee waters and ever since they got off of zero salome defeats coming alive here a little bit a little.

Bit more fluid it seems like they're settling in a little bit we haven't seen a lot of um patient kitchen points it was nice to to see solomon get the better vanillin that one second sir and mariano looking to poach and ben john's looking to ernie so a little bit of something from.

And feeling rushed and a little bit of pressure there was celebrate the vj trying to be a little too perfect with that 2-1 yeah tough deep return there by emily and there's a missed return so match point the first one we've had so far and we'll see if benjamin can close it out right here.

And that's not confirmed looked like ben tried to add maybe a little a little extra mustard on that serve to end it with an exclamation point still have another match point here ten true two looking very comfortable today here on stadium court to start and they'll move.

On uh say and mariana will look to do battle in the back draw johnny pickleball andrews here with kyle mckenzie don't go anywhere we have more mixed pro doubles coming at you we'll be back when you have auto glass damage choose safe flight.

Both teams we were so close we're pulling away once again team europe are the lava cup champions so i hope the streak continues thrill of victory is amazing the agony defeat sucks all right welcome back to the ppa barrett love management open johnny pickleball andrews join with me.

Is kyle mckenzie and we have a great matchup coming at you here we're gonna have the number three seat now aj kohler and callie smith taking on the number 11 seed jana grechina and thomas wilson this is going to be a battle as thomas wilson and jana grechida were able to defeat tyler lewing and leia.

Janssen the sixth seed to move on aj kohler and callie smith able to defeat travis rittenmeier and uh one of the kawamotos right right either one is tough either one or two one either one should be an exciting matchup um you know cali smith and aj really like each.

Of their games individually as well as as a team each of them have some of the fastest hands around can certainly play that up tempo style but they are full-time pickleball pros they certainly can play the soft game as well and then uh thomas wilson and jana grechina just coming off a very impressive win 11-4-11-4 over leia.

Janssen and tyler loom they seem to be very much in form and so it'll be very interesting to see which team kind of implements their will early and to to look at some of the x's and o's in the strategy for each team here that's right and uh aj kohler and kelly smith defeated travis rettmeyer and jackie kawamoto so.

Make sure i got that correct but they look to do battle here and uh i would imagine you're to see a lot of a lot of lobs from aj kohler potentially right some unorthodox shots but the the fierce tenacity from cali smith um is always always going to be on display thomas wilson is a very solid steady.

Player you're going to probably see him poach a lot and try to get in there but the aggression of and two-handed backhand of jana grechina is no slouch whatsoever so no absolutely she can she can certainly hang and uh and push these guys i'd say you know after watching thomas play quite a bit he's a very smooth player.

Comes from from tennis has beautiful looking strokes moves very effortlessly around on the court and then aj who i believe is his cousin and long time doubles partner is very much known for his flicks and his hand speed doesn't need a ball very high to be able to speed that ball up and uh implement some aggression so.

They're going to be obviously very familiar with each when other play thomas normally plays the right so be interesting to see how he does often probably playing the left side in this mixed doubles matchup that's right and we're underway and yannick with a miss early here but quick point for.

Callie smith and aj kohler 1-0-2 1-0-2 called by our lead referee lou adamson with our second referee onisha smith there is the first line from aj kohler right on cue i think our voices are projecting i think he heard you there johnny you know that third shot lob wasn't a.

Play that was used very often at all even a year or two ago players are realizing that it's hard to put this ball away even if you give your opponent an overhead you can defend and maybe work your way in still second serve zero two two aj backing up a little bit turning into.

A hockey goalie but unable to defend that one from yanaginski one two two and that ball taking a little unorthodox bounce for callie smith yeah looked like it jumped into her definitely fooled her there you won't see that happen very often and look for thomas here to insert his.

Will i'm looking for uh for his forehand to be a big weapon for his team here callie's up to the task on that forehand drive side out here two two one second sir aj kohler not happy with himself with that one as he kind of puts it too high and right in the wheelhouse of thomas wilson yeah great anticipation.

By thomas there knew he popped it up a little and anticipated where that attack was going to be as aj trying to go behind her two two one point that's a great setup from january drive the first ball set up thomas to clean up with his forehand yeah that's what we call a shake and big play where.

The non-driving partner will crash in early and if enough pressure is put on that volley can set them up for a poach second serve three two two great finish by cali but really set up by aj he had a many opportunities to simply dink that ball back he stayed aggressive kind of daring his opponents.

To try to counter punch through him great aggressive play there second serve may have jinxed aj a little on that one wasn't able to get that drop over two three two sign out and there's one of aj's flicks that we all know that one going a little long.

The wrists are not made of rubber they just look like it just looks like it second serve great discipline leave by cali there a little long on the drive by yana three two two point always happy to get some free points in.

A match of this caliber side out two four one and after a little bit of a scramble play there gotta herself out and then unable to get the little bit of love from the net.

Cord so yeah use some great athleticism to stay alive in that point weren't able to neutralize and get back up to the kitchen line unfortunately and that ball pushing into the body of yana grechina unable to get up and so just like that we are all tied here early on in game one four four one four four one and.

Callie smith to serve and that flick missing as well just by a little bit though it's coming in he's calibrating he's guys he's working it out i mean that's that's aj's bread and butter he does a great job of leaning in and using those top spin flicks just slightly push that one long.

Great pressure from thomas wilson and he's finding his strength too he's being active with his feet he could have played one of those shots as a backhand knows he can do a little more with his forehand slid over and looking to play thomas wilson a little bit of everything there.

and very much appreciated from the crowd as well 5-4-1 as that gives them the lead and thomas wilson finding the left shoulder of aj kohler great spot not just attacking to attack but finding specific areas to jam his opponent that's where having information being.

Familiar with your opponent's helps is you know almost all of us have some vulnerable spots on our body where we're attacked but it's not always the same spot for everyone familiarity goes a long way in knowing you know which patterns to use 642. and getting a little bit of love from.

The net there is callie smith it dribbles over and thomas wilson unable to get under it enough yeah didn't have a lot of options there really just dinking back over in that shallow zone was kind of his only play second sir.

And both aj and callie now both trying to find that spot behind thomas wilson and each yeah great offensive pressure and a great job moving in together as a team your opponents certainly feel that court and their targets shrinking when they feel both of you coming into the kitchen.

Like that and yanagina trying to go behind aj kohler comes up a little bit long so once again all tied up here in the tightly contested opening game and crafty work there from aj kohler great defense though from thomas wizard as you'll see it right there but.

Unable to get the last one yeah they extended the point but it was all set up by a slight pop-up from yana but the presence of aj leaning in and being willing to take those balls out of the air is something that you feel as opponents over the course of the match great cleanup play callie smith aj.

Yeah that's uh that's certainly within their skills why they're such a tough team they're very good once those points get one faster absolutely and that's gonna be our first timeout taken johnny pickleball mckenzie don't go anywhere we'll be back right after this.

when safe drivers save up to 30 on their auto insurance for not answering their phone while driving they feel like a pretty big deal steve did you get the ice even if they forgot the ice.

save up to 30 on auto insurance with usaa safe pilot get a quote today see that thing john marant has that's a hypervolt that thing he uses to warm up and stay loose before he throws it down that thing tony fenow uses on course between shots oh that's money that thing.

Robin and i use before and after we're on the bike so we can ride harder tomorrow that thing erlang holland uses before smashing it into the back of the net that thing that's for everyone the hypervolt from hyper ice give your body the daily relief it's been asking for.

it's here welcome back smith aj kohler taking a slight lead here at 8-6 in the opening game one against yana.

and thomas wilson yeah down early they certainly gained the momentum back we'll see if they can hang on to it here was right in yana's wheelhouse certainly was on that volume just slightly misted into the tape though yeah it's an excellent point by yana to me if i'm in their camp that's what i.

Would uh try to do more of she's not just dinking to cali but she's rolling that dink she's pushing back and she's really dictating at the line when she's hitting those top spin roll forehand dinks second sergeant and callie smith with a slight fist pump get them going knows that it's crunch time now getting to be the end of the.

Game and great opportunity there from jana grechina but that's going to give the ball right back to aj kohler kelly smith as they look to close out game one and that's gonna help their players with.

It come on from cali smith you see the power that callie has in her arsenal taking her drive right at the the male and thomas wilson able to get him to pop that volley up and put the next one away 10-6-1 and our first game point aj kohler.

Ankle breaker moment leona might be in his head a little bit there definitely knew he was going to be sliding middle held down a little longer great play up the line go incredible point great defense from ghana but aj kohler and kelly smith able to.

Take game one so guyana grecia thomas wilson will have to fight in game two to try to force that game three that's right don't go anywhere we'll be back when you prefer dream vacation over a.

Cincinnati area at the linder families family tennis center about to get underway we'll see if jana grechina thomas wilson can force game three or if aj kohler and california is going to move yeah it's a very competitive first game we'll see who can kind of get that momentum early in the second year.

And great lead there from cali smith zero zero one second turn and that's gonna be great defense from jana aj trying to do a nice little touch volley gets a little too too fancy with that one yeah yeah not the conventional shot selection but uh you know he made the.

Last one that he went for so not judging too much aj said it himself popping that one up jana knows what to do with that one so i'd like to see and thomas um continue to you know get to the kitchen line and look to dictate look to move the ball.

Around great clothes there but i think if they get in the mode where they're just content with making their dinks i feel like callie and aj are such a good offensive ones they may be able to implement their will a little too easily and jana gretch get it going for the.

Ernie second serve it's a great idea she was just a split second too late on that one once again great defense but just way too much offense from aj kohler yeah pretty high level put away by aj there kind of opened uh closed his hips and hit that short angle if you're new to pickleball it can be very challenging to.

Thump an overhead and get that ball through often you need to open up the court by working those angles um in order to get the point through and thomas wilson unable to come up with that overhead so you just have to have a short term memory shake that one off and keep.

Playing playing confident pickleball there and thomas wilson kind of getting himself pumped up after that one a little bit 112. once again aj kohler yeah he will uh he will initiate more.

Attacks probably than anyone else on the court here really is very confident in his hand speed and wants to get in those fast battles great lead great call from aj to communicate with his partner callie smith to let that one go an underappreciated skill and it makes doubles the communication aspect 100.

Not easy to let balls go uh any level and even though that ball landed wide callie smith taking no chances she's getting her reps in you know a little extra practice why not 1-1-1 and pushing that ball just deep enough to put yana grizzkin on the back foot and she's unable to convert yeah can.

When you can make those cross-court dinks extra penetrating landing closer to that kitchen line it really helps you maintain control of the line point cali smith showing that forehand volley i think was the situation where aj actually saw that ball going wide told callie no she said you know what it's fun to hit the winner.

Great exchange great hands couple words exchanged between the cousins they're smiling at each other having a good time that's what is all about yeah that's great pressure and you see the difference in style even among the top players when aj hits a.

Drop or if his partner is he's very aggressive about getting into that line very early on looking to use those fast hands and his comfortability yes you have four one four one and callie smith trying to go behind thomas wilson overcooks that one.

Two four one and thomas looking to add add some points here that'll help their cause three four one and thomas actually asking what he's doing and someone from the crowd actually saying you're doing all right build up that confidence a little bit players need that from time to.

Time an incredible get from thomas wilson jana unable to come up with it four three one second sir as the third shot lob i think he's one for two one for two now might have a little breeze with him might be a little tougher to pull off on.

This side and instead of going down the line as they predicted thomas whips that two-handed backhand right back across the body of aj kohler and a great example of knowing your opponents uh you know thomas could have played that attack in many locations he went just out wide of aj aj a little.

Less aggressive when you see him put the second hand on the paddle second sir it was an onslaught of aggression from thomas but cali is very much up to the task three four two another wrist flick there from aj kohler comes up just a little short yes as we are all tied here four four.

Two at four four two side out trying to use that shake and bake play with thomas disconnecting there looking to poach good idea inside out aj and cali showing them how to do it very much in their arsenal like we've.

Talked about they're very comfortable moving forward and finding aggression even when they're a little off the line and that play is going to give them the lead here in game two second serve aj may have just ran through that one a little bit five fourteen seconds.

And great touch and feel there great shot great spot aj kohler yeah that's what kind of is his bread and butter like we've talked about he's very good with those flicks he doesn't need a ball very high to stay offensive six four two looks like aj had a little tunnel up the middle just barely cooked that long side.

Out here four six one point five six one first third shot lob from thomas kind of taking a play out of his cousin's uh playbook there five six two five six two sided i think jana grechina little.

Miscommunication there between her and thomas wilson yeah and she gets jammed yeah it's very tough to stick that volley when the feet are still moving needs to maybe come to a split step just a touch shooter there really dude and trying to really get a lot of roll on that shot as thomas wilson but a.

Little too much yeah yeah he's a little frustrated with himself that's certainly an error that he normally doesn't make no mistake about that big forehead winner see how he hit that second shot a little flatter than the first one looking to put that away.

and aj's aggression coming alive a little bit more and that point is just aj being aj like we've talked about he closes from the baseline to the kitchen line so quickly he's able to play offense in a blink of an eye great spot there from cali smith now.

Both of them starting to click definitely have the momentum right now and with that momentum yanagina and thomas wilson gonna take a timeout which means we're gonna have to go to break but don't go anywhere for the conclusion of game two we'll be back right after this always.

Yeah it's been a fun one to watch um it's still anybody's game but and that ball gonna go a little wide so nine five two as aj over cooks that one 10-5 correction 10-5-2 so still live here is going to be thomas wilson jana grechina.

Five ten one that's great flick goes into the crowd as they appreciate it yeah great location on that attack from thomas often times when players use a two-handed backhand they struggle getting attacked right he disguised that one well and aj attacking the lower left side of.

Thomas wilson unable to get under that ball enough and so we'll have 6 10 2 coming up 6 10 2. and thomas wasn't just going for it great defense from janna the crowd giving him some love there he goes you can see it on replay takes a tumble might not have got it.

After two bounces but who knows either after the effort is great yeah i'd love to see that we're in center court that's what you want to see people giving it their all second serve another match point here it looks like we're at 10 62. ten six two opportunities.

Point game match and that's going to do it aj kohler kelly smith taking down thomas wilson and jana grechina they will move on and what a battle it was they felt and looked really comfortable the three seed gets to move on johnny pickleball kyle mckenzie don't go anywhere more pickleball coming at you we'll be back.

Wealth management open cincinnati ohio mixed doubles day and that means next up we have the number one seed once again on center court lucy kovalova matt wright gonna be taking on the number eight seed spencer smith and elise jones uh we got to see all these players come.

Out and play already they all look very comfortable dominant in their performances what do you think kyle yeah 100 i think uh we're in for a much closer match than than what we've seen in some of ours um you know to me i think you know elise jones is such a fighter she's had wins over matt and lucy before i think she.

Was playing with somebody other than spencer but he's certainly a top player himself um to me i just think it's going to come down to how much can spencer and elise make matt and lucy earn their points in their previous match matt and lucy were able to hit a lot of third shot drives get a lot of cheap points they may look to do that early on but if.

Elise can be solid with her initial volleys i think we're gonna see a lot more uh kitchen play where i think it's gonna be very close and very competitive so excited to see how this one plays out that's right and uh our lead referee david stewart going to be checking paddles and going over all the pre-game introductions with.

Our second referee laura smart so they'll be down there calling the call on the match as we look to see spencer smith and elise jones take on the number one seed matt wright and lucy kovalova biggest thing playing against probably some of the best teams in the world cut down on those errors uh on the easy ones.

Yeah no 100 obviously you want to play a clean game and it's it's that it's that line that you have to walk where you know you want to try to exploit weaknesses and you know in your opponents but really at this level i think you start out and you just play to your strengths you do what you do well at this level so much of it comes down.

To your own execution you can be a strategic genius but if you don't know how to um keep the ball in play and and play to your strengths you're gonna be gonna be on your heels so we'll see if spencer and elise can um can come out firing here um they're both great defensive players i.

Expect uh to see the scrappiness elise jones is known for uh some of her highlight reel diving saves and uh spencer is just a very calculated smooth player so anytime you're playing uh you know the number one seed you're gonna have to play your very best but i think they're certainly capable of of making matt and lucy feel some pressure here.

That's right the crowd continues to file in here at the linder family tennis center beautiful facility great day for pickleball and we've already seen some incredible matches elise john spencer smith out of utah and lucy kovalova and matt wright both.

Out of wichita kansas oh plenty of practice for these players amongst themselves where they're from quite a luxury considering many partnerships come from different places around the country some of your partners are in michigan you might be in florida.

Just it's kind of hard to get that something absolutely anytime that you can be able to get those extra reps with your partner um certainly uh certainly helps you have that chemistry on court that's so crucial that's right well game one coming up don't go anywhere number one.

Management open these guys are getting ready to go spencer smith elise jones getting ready to take on the number one seed matt wright and lucy kovalova our lead referee david stewart's getting them all together and game number one's about to start looks like spencer and elise will be.

Serving first crowds getting excited we're midday here music's going everybody's excited to see the best put on a show here game one alice jones spencer smith serving to lucy cobalova matt wright time in.

alice thank you police having to correct the referee it's not alice folks and matt wright just putting it to the left side of spencer smith i'm able to get that ball yeah kind of catching spencer leaning towards the middle very.

High level second serve so just like in their last match they're starting out with that drive early gonna test the the counter punching by elise and she's up to the task early on inside out here zero zero one and a little love there from the net second serve.

Zero zero smith to serve side out not a bad idea by spencer there saw that that was a little short on the return just he wasn't able to get his spot there on the drive and going for a big angle there and a little wide wanting to make sure that matt doesn't.

Get it he succeeded he did put it out of his reach to be fair but also missed the court so that gives matt lucy first first point and then jamming elise jones there with the drive two zero one.

A little bit of an ambitious move by matt wright of trying to take that ball from his shoelaces yeah i was going to say it in his skill set to flick but that ball was exceptionally low can probably wait for a better opportunity and a much needed side out for elise jones and spencer smith early here.

Zero two one second serve zero zero two excuse me correction zero two two a little correction from the referee zero two two and coming out a little flat here so far spencer smith and elise jones look to.

Get going it can take a couple points a lot of pressure though is applied from lucy kovalev and matt wright yeah that's just great anticipation by matt there uh knowing that that ball's popped up knowing it's challenging for spencer to attack that back across plugs himself in the middle and is able.

To stick that volley thank you and the crowd giving elise jones a little bit of love as was the net as she was able to hit the top of it to the right past matt wright to be fair i think she had matt fooled either way it was a great deception on that attack sometimes how hard you hit it but if you.

Can make it look like a dink it can enhance the effectiveness of the shot spencer smith using the first ball to attack and see it on replay and finally and great spot there for boys jones jam matt but able to kind of flick that sucker down as he does a nice little finger wag yeah she went with that.

Intentionally high misdirection attack but matt was able to get his paddle on top of the ball and get down on that volley not an easy shot there you ever see that attack by matt going at spencer's inside hip wasn't really sure to play that as a forehand or a backhand great location.

And great shot right down the middle from spencer smith as he looks to get going here but gonna have to hold one more time zero two three zero two lucy kovalova to serve and again the same spot right on that left shoulder of spencer smith matt wright puts it on a dime yeah.

Daylight to work with but he thread the needle well and uh was able to jam spencer there i'll recall a score four zero two and another point awarded to matt wright and lucy kovalova coming in at 5-0 and after game one don't go anywhere we're gonna make sure to send you over to dave benz and dave fleming at the.

Tennis channel studio as elise jones goes into the wall trying to chase down that lob i don't think she's seen a ball that she believes she can't reach so she will give 100 effort all the time love that about her yeah you see the pressure that matt's able to put on them just about every.

Time he's got a neutral dinky in the middle with his forehand he's either speeding it up or heavily moving that ball around it's kind of challenging for elise and spencer to keep it away from that location a great flick from matt wright check it out right here looks one way goes right behind spencer.

Smith once again knows that spencer has to cover middle goes back behind him point and a little miscommunication leads to a missed dink from spencer smith and mac lucy looking very dominant here early man try the shake and bake once again.

Matt trying to set lucy up for a clean winner unable to execute on that play i think matt and lucy are doing a good job of varying their tempo right now mixing up between offense and defense second serve and elise jones knowing she had it set up for herself.

She saw that opening it's tough to react in time even when you do have an alley to work with side out six zero one and she doesn't miss that one another opportunity for it just takes full advantage six zero two.

And somehow gets the first there's a nice little fist pump from matt wright puts it right up to him you can see it right here overhead slam seven zero two that puts us at seven zero there goes elise that's sometimes the jones that you don't you don't realize when you're.

Watching is that's a small target for at least to try to take that through matt easier said than done to make that shot that's right we'll be back don't go anywhere when safe drivers save up to 30 on their auto insurance for not answering their phone while driving they feel like a.

Pretty big deal steve did you get the ice even if they forgot the ice save up to 30 on auto insurance with usaa safe pilot get a quote today here's liz.

Whose bladder leaks drop in uninvited but instead of period pads she brought poise ultra thin so she can bounce on with clean dry fresh protection from poi and welcome back to the ppa bare wealth management open johnny pickleball andrews join with me is kyle mckenzie and we're getting right back to the.

Action the crowd is loving it pumped up here to watch the number one seed matt wright and lucy kovalova take on the number eight seed spencer smith and elise jones spencer elise have their work cut out playing very very high level pickleball and so a great time out taken to kill that moment.

Second serve lee's pretty frustrated with herself that's normally a shot that she would make see if they can hear and that ball landing in did she make that oh my gosh and you see it's not the speed of that shot that misdirection shot is all about getting your opponent to lean middle and.

Throw that ball back up the line second serve and matt wright a little a little short on that ball eight zero trying to add a little extra top spin on that drink out of the air just barely clipped the tape inside out here and that is a much needed point as the crowd gives them some love one eight.

They are on the board one eight make it two sometimes get in just that first cheap point gets the monkey off your back you're able to play a little freer and i love that lob choice by elise i hope she uses that more as the match progresses here second third matt luis you're so tough.

At the kitchen line anytime you can push them off that line it's a play you want to be looking to use and that ball sails just long she tries to go behind matt wright eight two one second serve eight two two.

Spencer smith finding the two-handed backhand of lucy colonel not once but twice there it goes you can see why that's lucy's signature shot pretty impressive there point and elise jones just trying to get something going here and i don't hate the attempt it was.

Definitely not a bad time to speed that ball up um you got to take chances somewhere that's right here we go game point there it goes little little awkward ending to the game there but they get it done game one in the books johnny piccolo andrews kyle mckenzie we're gonna be sending it over.

Quarter final baird wealth management's open and uh dave it's been a uh pretty impressive start to this quarterfinal matchup for lucy kovalova and matt wright a dominant 11-2 win in game one yeah the top seeds off and running we'll see if they can keep that up here so kovaleva and right on the right side of your screen that's a look at the.

Number one ranked doubles team right now and jones and smith on the left side of the screen a little dink there by right smith unable to get back over so we'll move to the second serve yeah and elise jones is a crowd favorite she's gonna be diving all over the place she will make this entertaining they had.

Some very good points in game one but just couldn't get on the board and were down big early but came around and got a couple at the end but uh they gotta go and get to a much better start here in game two and matt wright is building on his most impressive performance of his career.

From where i sit in the men's doubles from tournament of champions he played phenomenally and that is carrying over and i'm sure lucy's loving that into the mixed matches here today yeah matt just seems to be getting better and better lucy gets handcuffed there so let him move to the second server and those of you.

New to the sport of pickleball watching on tennis channel each side in doubles gets two serves well more than two serves if you want to point but each server each player on each side gets an opportunity to serve before there's a side out a switch of serve that's correct sir.

You saw that uh smith jones changed their positioning there they uh sent elise over to the left side of the court and they're gonna do that again here and that is a great attack by elise you'll see lucy kovalova always holds her back in in the middle so you want to attack the right side of her body the.

Danger is the sideline is in play great job by jones of keeping that in the court so that was the side out and now they're going to break the first serve so they'll move to the second server now it'll stay zero two and two is the the third number so zero two two not as not quite as confusing in the singles play.

If you caught coverage yesterday because it's straight up just the score with the server score first when they announce it how about that quick reaction to get out of the way nice job there by jones good help from her teammate smith as well telling her to to get that it was going to be long go full matrix now and she did it.

Smith and jones able to get up to the kitchen line kovaleva how about that backhand two-handed to be able to finish off that exchange yeah that's her signature shot not today is what she says when she hits it and you know again keeping your opponents back is the key so matt right do that throughout and.

Then lucy gets the highlight real finish kovalova and right posts coming out of the kansas area as they're facing the jones and smith tandem both out of the utah area three yeah wichita v utah here lucy sends it into the net and you saw that last rally before that.

Point that jones being on the left side had an opportunity in the middle but just couldn't get there how cool is this the synced up neck cams that's hit long so the point for kovalova and wright puts him up 4-1 starting to get some breathing room here it is best two out of three all the games 211 got to win by two.

Right unable to return that offering from smith that'll result in this side out actually overran it though got in a little bit too too close on it the lob and wright was ready for that overhand and that's coming from a volleyball star.

At least jim so big spike in matt wright said bring it that's tremendous hands yeah at least a very diverse uh background athletically she also played softball from pleasant grove utah tennis champion volleyball state champion.

Didn't didn't apparently win anything in softball but she enjoyed playing it and how about that matt right with authority putting that exchange away yeah jones and smith are trying to figure it out you saw them switch back to elise being on the right side of the court that didn't work so they're gonna stick with that for.

Now matt wright with the ernie and the finish actually that's that's a bert because so it is technically an ernie but they call it a bert when you take it on the other player's side yeah you got to have love for sesame street dave so that is the cool kids term and the correct term for.

That shot so actually i would love to know i don't know what the origins are bert ernie like in terms of how that nate those names got applied i will happily share that so you're gonna have to wait till the other side of the break we gotta pay some bills but we'll be back to the bear wealth management open after this timeout.

Difficult jobs to fill ziprecruiter rated the number one hiring site try it for free at ziprecruiter.com tennis 6-2 in favor of kovalova and wright after the timeout being taken by smith and jones all right mr fleming do tell the origins of burton ernie so ernie perry e-r-n-e was the first to do.

That move and that jumping over the kitchen on your side of the court was named after him so literally named after mr ernie perry came there the sesame street is where the bird comes from so.

The idea of the creativity of being able to jump in front of your partner and take a ball as you fly over the kitchen is ernie and burt so well and burt always did strike me as the more selfish of the two absolutely so i can tell you how to get to sesame street and that's by jumping over the kitchen.

Well right now kovalev and wright just trying to get to the semi-finals and uh it's been all rainbows and sunshine for them so far against jones and that is wide though yeah winner of this gets a very talented jessie irvin and jay devilier in the next one so uh a foreboding opponent.

Awaits two seven two make it three or sorry two seven one make it three seven one three seven one four seven one a little bit of a rally being shown here by jones and smith yeah and we talked a lot yesterday about how fast or slow people play as this rally continues.

Jones and smith are going to want to run to the kitchen line how about the exchange right there finally hitting in the net by kovalova but there were impressive shots on both sides no doubt and matt wright is known for the lob that you see right there but uh that quickness of elise jones to get.

Back and then great job by spencer smith of filling in and taking over that point great call by matt wright saying no lucy gets out of the way that'll make it five seven two smith now will take over the server make it 6-7-2 and matt wright with some disgust they're swatting the air after.

Losing that exchange heads up with elise jones and he quickly has an answer to that with an extra little yell there see this from elise jones tried to take over herself but abandoned the court to her right great put away there by kovalova yeah.

Sometimes your lob is just a law and uh that got uh punished two very talented tennis players you see on your screen there matt wright played for michigan the atp attempted there but not executed the way that jones was hoping yeah you got to shape that a little bit when you're on your forehand side to.

Sort of curve it or curl it in and she just hit it flat and straight ends up short of the sideline because if you're not familiar with the vernacular atp just simply stands for around the post you do not have to have the ball actually go over the net if you're able to hit it around the side and have it land in the other court then.

It's considered a legal shot that's going to make it 10-6 and a time-out being taken by jones and smith as they are facing the wrong end of a match point here yeah anytime you see those paddles start uh clunking like tops on the side of the court you know a timeout is coming so a nice spurt by the utah duo there they.

Got into some exchanges but the overall play from wright and kovalova has been just too much so far i love the time out there obviously when you're staring at a match point do everything in your power i think the opportunity here's hit a nice deep return and get ahead of.

The point off that return here and we saw them run off a few why not do it again here but you got to get the ball back easier said than done right now with kovalev and wright smelling the blood in the water a chance to close this thing out and get a little bit of a break before.

Having to play in the semifinals it's all mixed doubles today on our coverage on tennis channel after we brought you the men's and women's singles all the way through the semifinals yesterday the finals will be on championship sunday.

we should note that the official for this match is david stewart who is doing just fine for those of you that uh saw him have a little incident he's doing fine and we're thrilled to see him.

Back on the court yeah he uh collapsed on the court yesterday and just you needed a little bit of uh rest and a little bit of water and turned out to be a-okay and we're so happy for that and that is gonna do it match point for.

Kovalevan wright they win at 11-2 11-6 and they move on easily to the semi-finals where they will have waiting as you mentioned jesse irvin and jay devilier look at lucy kovaleva steal the lob thunder there at the end throws a beauty up in the air there with some confusion and the lob just gets your opponent off.

The line and sets you up that's a great ball by lucy there so impressive win for kovalevan right all right so here's the look at the draw in the baird wealth management open mixed doubles anna lee waters and ben johns will take on irina tarashenko and patrick smith that's going to be the.

Next match we'll bring you here on tennis channel for the final spot in the semi finals and anna lee waters and ben johns you're talking about the two premier players but not technically the number one seed in this tournament no they're not the the points and this is a grand slam so more points more prize money.

They are behind the team that we just saw who has done very well consistently throughout the year these two are coming for that the interesting thing about this match is tarashenko and smith haven't played yet today they they they were the team t
