foreign foreign foreign.

thank you good morning everybody Welcome to the PPA and the beard wealth management Texas open day Fleming here thrilled to have you joining us and the best players in the world are back.

In Texas we were at Frisco a few weeks ago hopped up to the nation's capital area and now we are back in Rockwall just 40 minutes or so east of downtown Dallas and it is singles day so we will have the men to start the day and at one o'clock the ladies will take Center Stage mixed in with the men and.

We'll play as we always do up to and through the semi-finals with people trying to punch their ticket to Championship Sunday what we have to start the day is a very interesting match we've got the local favorite Brandon with Riley Newman was able to win the very first Tournament of his pro career with.

Winning the PPA showdown at Frisco a few weeks ago so he's got a lot of confidence he's played here before and all he has to do is beat the best player in the world that's all that's all we're asking him to do so Ben Johns as you see there tying the shoe on the net post will be his opponent Ben of course is the top seed.

Today and uh these two know each other well and Ben is going for some full swing warm up here uh the weather conditions are it's a little chilly for Texas today there's a little breeze and uh you know the ball is going to play a little faster here with this weather condition so Brandon French actually should have.

Already played a match today but he's through because of a walkover so he got uh the Beloved my apart my opponent did not show up so he got that victory and now he runs into Ben Johns on the other side of the core of the of the draw you will have Jay davilier who is playing some serious pickleball these days had a real nice.

Run in the second half and he hopes to build on that Tyson McGuffin the two seed always number one entertaining number two a threat to make it to Championship Sunday and potentially win the match so we're thrilled you're here I am joined in the booth by Clark Benassi Clark how are you I'm great Dave thanks so much.

For having me I'm excited to uh be here with you it's a beautiful facility the weather's great uh and by great I mean it's not too hot it is cloudy but um I mean super fun to be here watching Ben John's play and obviously it's a tough task for Brandon yeah so Clark obviously you have uh had a little bit of a dalliance with uh.

Pro pickleball here and uh or an up and coming player yourself so you've run into I was just talking about Mr davilier you ran into that so when you are an underdog like French is here what's going through your mind sure well um certainly it's overwhelming uh there's no doubt about it um just looking across the net and.

Seeing somebody that's you know has so many accolades has had so much success in this Sport and as you said you know I've played quite a few 5-0 tournaments getting into the pros singles um game and you know the key for me against playing J was really just kind of pretending like he was just a no-name.

Player um obviously he's not right but I think the looser I was and the looser Brandon can be in this match and just relaxing on every single shot breathing taking his time it's going to have a little bit more success if he takes that approach and I think the more you think about oh this is Ben Johnson so this is Jay davilier.

Oh this is you know whatever big player you're playing against you're already kind of putting yourself behind the eight ball so I think it's important to remember that he's here for a reason as I tell myself and to just be loose and Go Out Swinging um if you're tight it's going to be a lot harder to get any.

Points yeah for sure and you know you see the draw and then they say you look at your court assignment and it's oh Center so not only do you have the challenge of one of the best players in the world and in this case the best player in the world as you see Ben there yes we're gonna talk about it there's gonna be cameras there's going to be.

People watching and you know some people thrive on that I think Brandon likes the fact that he's been able to make a name of himself winning as I mentioned earlier the the doubles when he got that Riley Newman hookup which obviously that's a huge part of his his win there and he's got so much talent let's see what.

It looks like against Ben Ben has started slowly quite frankly in the past too so it'll be an interesting development and Ben doesn't bother walking around the net why walk around it when you can just go over it I do not recommend anyone my height at five eight or below doing that walk around for safety yeah I would say.

So too I would say so too Dave and you know I think the key for Brandon like you said you know Ben all right so we are ready to start let's play Pickleball Ben Johns to serve to Brandon French and that is a great start for for Ben yeah not a surprise there it's a great shot down the line from him French gets the ball back he's got fans.

In the stands obviously being the local boy and he's a lawyer so we got lawyer ball here oh and a wicked Inside Out forehand from French and we're tied at one it's great Movement by Brandon and I think the key for him is going to be to go for his shots early take the opportunity when it comes if he doesn't.

Make it he doesn't make it yeah I think you know you see him get past clean to start with and then gets a couple points all right here we go and the Tui from Ben Johns ties us up at two and you hear French say Brandon that's stupid we agree I mean John's is going to get that.

Easily anyway well I got a little lucky there not the greatest return Ben usually tees off on those but and that's what you need when we talked about you know you're playing a great player get some gifts I think Dave Ben does such a great job of um really exemplifying the fact that.

You don't have to always hit the ball hard as long as you put it in the correct spot is doing that early on here yeah French is going to have to get the loopiness out of these returns because that is pick my side which Target would I like to hit and John's is going to hit this.

Wind's a little bit at the back of French yeah I'd argue that probably the most important shot in singles is the return it either makes or breaks the rest of the point okay and and clean winner return for Ben Johnson everyone on the court is laughing about how in the world did that.

Angle I don't even know if that gets a protractor out everybody uh let's be casual Mr French did he take a look at Ben there before he hit that shot there's no doubt about it he gave him a little uh that's awesome yeah the uh the the French theatrics are part of his uh whole ensemble and uh you know it charges him up.

and there's again you talked about it Clark the just that roll put pressure on don't need to do something just so remarkable sure that ball and that's an evil dipping forehand but again a short return in the middle of the Court yeah Ben is opting for a lot more drives right now as opposed to his.

Usual drop game that's a great return from Brandon I mean against a player like Ben you're gonna have to hit the ball at the Baseline in the corners make him work so let we'll replay it Angela Lumen is our great referee calling the score for us and just Phil from Ben John's right.

There but again nothing on the return no and that's a near impossible shot to get a dipping at the net as you talked about earlier and putting it in the in that corner there's the reach and length of French able to get that he's he's going with that short hop return which serves him very well in doubles to get to the.

Kitchen but he only has to cover half the court sure happens so we'll see if he changes that philosophy it's a great spot Ben's laughing but it's you know I talked about it in DC two weekends ago these players need to have fun I think that's so much better when you see them having fun just got caught under his feet a little.

Bit there yeah well again he's standing very close to the Baseline so he's given a little more room here that's two big service winners in a row for John's and he is within two of taking game one that's the thing I've seen him also do he's taking that big serve to his doubles game too and yeah that is.

Definitely helping him out with shorter thirds to have to hit off of a weaker return again I will put it on replay we replay the let's here on the PPA yeah Ben lost his concentration may be there a little bit but he can afford it he's up big in this first game.

Oh and French talking after that one clips clips the tape and stays in so it's within five oh and then the no apology apology there from French well Brandon's really Dave not dropping any balls I mean he's almost driving everything I don't mind that tactic especially when you're fresh early on in the first game.

Francis goes backside of the paddle to get the first one but can't get the next one and the most entertained person by the French theatrics on the court and in this entire tri-state area is Ben Johnson yes 100 oh hello Ernie wow beautiful ball from French.

See that again Clark come on I mean that's just too good from Brandon what a move wow and a second return winner Cross Court as French is leaking over to the backhand side just a little bit but that one clipped the tape that's how tight the angle was another big serve and that is it for.

Game number one so French entertaining not just the crowd but his opponent and Ben John's quite happy with the score we'll be back with game two right after this champions Uncle ball foreign.

One Vision all right welcome back everybody Dave Fleming with Clark Benassi and the top seed takes out the local favorite 11-4 here goes game number two does not get off to a good start for Mr French David's obviously easy for us to sit here and you know say all the things.

That Brandon should be doing differently but I would say one of those things especially in that first game I would have liked to have seen him use a timeout earlier stop the momentum a little bit you know pickleball is a game where two three points go by and a third half of the match is already finished so it's.

Important to slow it down I think as much as possible especially when there's a few missed returns you're letting John see as you can see right there really going after that serve foreign er no he runs around it and French is talking I love the confidence.

And the wind is in his face so it will not give that the love some nice uh rolls there from that beautiful dick star paddle that uh French is now uh using and another of the entries into the pickleball world in the paddle space French fakes and stays he does the back side of the paddle and then is in front.

Of the next one oh oh my did that Oh I thought it was in dad but just just a millimeter wide wow shot my friend that one's a millimeter in yeah it's great Point construction went down the line and then across Court okay and the stair down and the walk around the kitchen here we go.

I think we need more of this in Pokeball don't we 100 000 percent okay and the three one lead here there will not be a timeout coming from the other side no I don't think so ever like he doesn't he just he just doesn't use him he's definitely not going to use him against French.

Comes flying over the video board and then inquires as to whether a ball 10 feet out was in sounded like it hurt a little bit didn't it I think it was this paddle so that's you know going for their serve missing a couple is it's it's in the budget yes and brand you know I'm Brandon's stroke.

Is a little bit unique it almost is that pendulum from Back to Front swing versus you know on the side or with Top Spin as we're used to seeing with a lot of these top level players that being said he's got a great dipping shot that goes right at the net if he can really start connecting on some of these shots you can make it a little bit.

Deeper run here for the second game okay another stare down as he swats the Tui that was much too high from Ben Johns you don't see many International Trade lawyers out here on Center Court no no you don't and it looks like he's uh promoting his his law firm as well which he'd love to see as well the bra Miller.

Folks should get and that that was a bizarre bounce yeah I'd like to see Brandon maybe back up a little bit more on the return he's short hopping a lot of them it's too good yeah and then we're into a drill session yep it's as if Colin's out here going all right I'm going to give you a return.

Brother and pass me you don't want to be in the middle of a John's drill session no Center oh and he flicks it right at him this is actually a great matchup for Ben to get into the tournament because he knows there's going to be theatrics so he's he's engaged and there's the timeout yeah from from French so yeah I.

Like that sometimes Ben's not the fastest starter but the involvement with the French makes him ready to go we'll see if he can finish off game two right after this foreign.

Is my lawyer well not right isn't here Izzy nothing to say to you we can do this the easy way or the hard way bring me the jigsaw welcome back everybody Ben Johns our top seed there's a good look at him you can.

See the flag in the background there wind is at his back chilly day for Texas and actually a nice day to play really no sun in your eyes Ball's playing fast a whole lot of net action there Club yeah and it was a great return by Brandon just Ben got lucky and that's.

What it takes sometimes in pickleball a couple net cords here and there and French goes for the peg off the cat and mouse French is not gonna play cat and mouse with with John no and that's why yep that's too good for Ben French just said I don't know why I hit that shot because I'm gonna lose every.

Time that's why I had he had ear pieces and I warned him not to write a cat and mouse with this guy but yeah you didn't tell him that earlier Oh weird wind and slams the paddle over oh it came flying out of his hand even that was just out of our eyesight there so uh.

His body is really taking a beating on those uh advertising boards or maybe it's the advertising ports that have taken the beat I think I think all parties are damaged all right Clark so this is seven in a row for uh Ben honestly it's great to see as you alluded to I.

Mean Ben is having a blast in his first match of the day yeah I mean I I talk about it and and I'll continue to talk about it you know pickleball is one of those sports that of course is growing and has such a professional demeanor to it I mean obviously we're here on the pro tour that being said I think the most.

Important thing is a fan even as a commentator as a player is to have fun see the enjoyment in these players faces because the end of the day that's so important and I think that's what will attract more players to the game if they see these guys at the top level having so much fun that's what sets pickleball.

Apart from so many other professional sports so seven point run let's see if French can get back on the board that would be no yeah it's a nice knife cutter kind of slice return from Ben hasn't hit too many of those he's gone pretty flat from the start but I think he's maybe now at.

The point where he's they'd like to end this conservative energy foreign 's like that's why that's why Maybe not maybe not okay it is good that's just such a good ball to start with these bang in the serve and the returns are short and it's trouble.

Oh man and that's world class right wow I mean what a guess on that first ball but if you knock your opponent to one side the rest of the Court's open in singles so you pick out that one spot go the other way you're you're in such a good spot to win the.

Point and here's a match point opportunity and a little roll he's gonna mess around so French has a 3-1 lead in game number two but it is 10 points in a row Ben John smiling his way over to the players area and this is uh this may be just what the doctor ordered as it relates to Ben John's really.

ready yet not yet buddy foreign welcome back everybody there is a great look at.

It's an oasis Clark it is an oasis we're out in Rockwell Texas this is The Baird wealth management Texas open day Fleming here with you thrilled to have you guys joining us it's singles day Clark Benassi is my uh partner to my left here in you know Clark we had a very entertaining first match with two players who had a just it was.

Just Joy some high level stuff yup it was fun to see so now we've got another incredibly entertaining top player we got Jay or as his uh given name Jocelyn de villier is out here he's the three seed and he's gonna play somebody you know quite well Christian Keenum on the other side yeah I'm from the Baltimore Maryland area.

Christian lives in the Annapolis Area so when I first started playing pickleball up in Maryland and unfortunately there weren't too many playing opportunities and courts available so you tended to really know the good players well and Christian was one of the players that I first discovered and knew about as a high level Pro he has since grown his.

Game tremendously he's been playing pro pretty much mixed doubles doubles and singles it's had some really decent results and he's a great player what he does so well is he's consistent and he hits his spots he doesn't do anything fancy but I talk about it a lot in pickleball it's not always about doing the fancy flashy thing it's about.

Getting the job done keeping the ball inside the lines he does a good job of that and he's going to give Jay a little bit of a run for his money today that being said and we talked about it before and I did take a little French Dave so Jose De villier yeah very nice is on the other side of the net yeah we we um I played him.

At the DC PPA two weekends ago and man what a wicked one-handed backhand he has as singles players as doubles players really as a high level player you're taught to mainly hit to the opponent's backhand not the case with Jay that being said he's strong on both sides so either way you're in for a really tough match he's got a ton of reach a ton of.

Length obviously helps with his earnings with his Net game and then he's got those drives at the at the Baseline so it's going to be a really challenging matchup for Christian and excited for it I am too you know I I'm gonna take full responsibility because the last match that Jay played last night in wreck was with me so uh so.

You're saying he's ready to win gold today I I think so but it you know we'll see there's a good looking forget to Championship Sunday rather you cannot win gold today but let's see if I was an inspiration let's play Pickleball and Christian Keenum comes out with a two-handed BB winner yeah and the hearts pumping he knows he's on.

Center Court and he just Stripes one yeah that's great a great start it's going to be a confidence builder for him and every ball needs to be swung at with that same yes fervor there's the backhand that you talked about the wind is in his face so uh could have affected the.

Timing just a bit where the left serves you can go a whole day without seeing one we've seen three already right that returns just steep yeah and these are really key junctures in the match I don't think a lot of people think about it because the match.

Just started but he's already up to zero string a couple more points together so the Tui is uh feeling very loose there's nothing tight About That Swing right there no and the 30 seed Kingdom keeps the feet out of the kitchen and look at that extension that's great footwork from Christian.

Another return sails deep so a couple freebies Keenum will not apologize about as many of those as come his way and a wicked forehand and ladies and gentlemen Christian Keenum has said good morning happy Thursday to you I am ready to entertain and this ball right there Beats.

80 percent of the players unbelievable reach all right so davilia is like all right this is legit try it out yeah you could see what he was trying to do there he was trying to see if he could maybe spin it and turn it in on that far Edge but ambitious a little too excited on that one but as you said his backhand his forehand's.

Been firing so far and every shot he's missed has been about an inch away yeah keep swinging if you're worried about missing you're playing wrong point good deep served by deviliates definitely going for more himself on the serve and that's what you don't want to do is.

Feed that monster yup and that's where I got killed two weekends ago Dave it was that backhand across Court it's that line over and over again comes up a little short on that one all right so davilia has kiss the scoreboard with a couple so uh Keenum up too it's two quality balls from.

Keenum five two early lead and an absolute rocket look at this Clark he's on fire I mean we're talking these are clearing the net by millimeters yeah I want to see Christian keep his cool keep his composure continue to chip away here and look at that Madness yeah that's too.

Good so he's been striping everything and this time gets all the left-handed roll an inch inside the line and my goodness seven two all right so devillier has been in this case in this situation plenty of times how does he respond to a guy who is playing at the top of his game yeah Jay looks a little bit frustrated.

As you said he has been in this situation before and he's just gotta breathe relax take it one point at a time plenty of match left to be played and you you know if you the other thing is like there's no way this guy can keep hitting all these shots can he let's make him keep trying to do it and if he.

Can then you got to change your ideas foreign back he constructed that point so well Dave yes uh after tracking down a ball and laying it back in the kitchen he was in command and then missed a forehand oh I guessed right yes guessed right because he was in trouble.

And gets the paddle tap from Keenum so those are those points that sometimes are the catalyst and now I missed you can't let that carry over so uh that's two missed Returns on both sides great read by Keenum yeah yeah he pretty much went for broke there had Jake on the other side I think he.

Could have gotten that winner but Christian read it really well foreign just inside the basement or the sideline and Keenum is within three of taking game one and shocking the world that's just too good it may be time to not give him angles.

So you always wonder can the underdog finish at the valley frustria that's another one he had a yeah similar forehand that he just needed to put down the line on his last service point yeah mentally if you can get to 10 that's a huge step in the right direction obviously let's see if he can.

Do it here maybe a little commentator curse so you're gonna have to send him that postcard Clark welcome to the booth foreign just can't get the ball to bounce right now I had a couple balls that he'd usually drop in the kitchen and he hasn't been able to get into that.

I like that time out call by Christian Keenum right there he's calling it on offense so can he finish we'll find out foreign look if we don't figure out this gravity situation.

All of those astronauts are going to die and the proof of alien life will be gone forever but we've tried everything um we haven't tried everything bring me the jigsaw Christian Keenum from Annapolis Maryland is up six on the three seeds called.

Timeout to settle himself down we'll see if that decision was a good one here I like the idea of it let's see if he can execute it and the answer is he can and that was a deep return down the middle and he just went for it and we have a game point for Keenum there's a little extra like disgust on.

That for him yeah by davilia yeah he's gonna raise his hands up to the sky there he's saying what am I doing I would like to maybe see him drop some more he's not quite connecting on those drives so that heart if we had the the monitor over there on Kingdom it is going a million miles an.

Hour right now got a Miss serve at 10-3 Miss like that was four squares up from the bottom of the net but he's still fine yikes yeah really just not Sharp because that's usually in a corner second game point here for Keenum just misses wide and he's got to be a.

Little bit nervous you know that's this ironic thing you're up 10-4 you're playing so well and now it's harder to close it out right yeah like there's nothing he can do to slow down his heart rate over there except play a good point there's the patented one-handed back and.

It's just a beautiful stroke yeah and if Jake can get a couple points here Dave we talk about scoreboard pressure such a huge mental um block for a player that's up big once they start to see their opponent creeping back in the village is just stunned that's three four hands that.

You add those to the scoreboard and we're at 10 8 but you cannot add ones that you should have made folks there is no such rule another shot for Keenum and davilia is like that's where these backhands are supposed to go yep where I can handle oh and just let up a little yeah Christian wants that one back I.

Mean makes that 99 out of 100 times just why did the one have to be on Center Court when people are talking about it and showing a clerk it's a million dollar question Dave that's and that's the answer and wow okay so just again he's got a timeout left I think that.

Might make him more nervous I'd actually rather see him just play through it and we are at eight ten three game points have been saved by davilier oh no and a missed return and now he's got to think about it is is a timeout going to settle him or make him more nervous he's going to play through it.

Oh he wants that one back because making any ball there is probably going to cause a problem for Keenum so now Keenum gets to swing freely on a third here foreign staring down a game point to be able to get it wide enough and debilier and this is the serve all right let me talk about a roller.

Coaster of a first game Dave this is insane so we're at 10-9 game point five time there's Keenum and that gets it done so this car was leaking oil all over the road but Keenum was able to get to the Finish Line I mean that's one of those where you see a guy and an iron man just.

Trying to get to the Finish Well he got there the villier will you have an answer we'll find out foreign pickleball each shot has its own strategy each player their own style whether you dink it.

Drive it lob it drop it bang it or spin it is entirely up to you but we do keep score we recognize the winners podiums are earned you want an edge you best were electrum earn your Edge foreign.

Match point it's all up to me nothing can get in my way and when they ask what are you gonna do next I'll say I'm going we're going to Margaritaville you can go to Margaritaville too visit Margaritaville resorts.com welcome back everybody Dave Fleming here with you at The Baird wealth management.

Texas open we got an upset Brewing Christian Keenum jumped out to a huge lead and then was barely able to hold on but he did kudos to him he takes game one and the villier comes out flying with a big one-handed backhand so even though he wasn't able to get game one devillier he's got to feel a little.

Better knowing got a nice string of points and he's up quickly 2-0 make that three and devillier is off to a rip roaring start the backhand is on point and four zip before Keenum even gets to see the ball make that five.

And uh if you're just joining us this is not what game one looked like not at all Dave oh my that was the easiest ball of all of these that he had and he cracks it deep yeah I think he's still a little frustrated with himself probably with that first game that being said you know we talk about.

Being a goldfish and having no memory in this game you lose a point you lose a game move on to the next one absolutely so Kingdom's got to get it rained back in here that's too good yep he's loving that two-handed backhand isn't he the Tui is doing some serious damage today.

Just wide on the forehand so gets one at least just the zero is you know we talk about scoreboard pressure that's that number's just ugly unless there's a one next to it and then you're feeling pretty good yep and this is six zip really quickly here in game two so momentum of the comeback carries over here for devillier.

Wow it's good playing from Christian you had a feeling a player of Jay's caliber was going to definitely make a dent in the second game we'll see if Christian can counter that much better return there just knifed in the corner so you know you want to try and hit special shots off that it's just.

A degree of difficulty goes way up it's three at least three missed returns here and timeout is called by Christian Keenum so davilia comes roaring back here in game number two will he completed we'll see after this foreign.

Let's go thank you thank you thank you my turn all right coming back after the king I'm tying them out and devillier looking to take game two and force a third game and uh the backhand might be time to try the forehand Clark.

Yeah I'd say so give him maybe a different look that being said I mean Jake can hit that shot from almost anywhere on the court he does try the forehand and it is equally as strong and everything is going the way of the third seed from France is that a couple of those sitters that.

Uh seem to be the easiest winners he had a shot at here in game number two but uh still comfortably in front another violent volley for the new father just 19 days ago that's right baby boy talk about A busy life huh no kidding doing well talked to Jay for a while last night everyone's doing great at home so that's great to.

Hear oh and tries like a little finesse roller yeah which is an underrated shot in singles you're seeing it more and more a mix between a drive and a drop kind of at that t on both Corners it's a great spot to hit if you can hit it that's an important ball for.

Keenum here you know he needs confidence himself going into game three if we get there because everything that looks so easy when it got up 10-4 it's a little harder now son just trying to peek through here so this afternoon the conditions may be quite different.

Yeah I think especially in singles you're going to prefer as Cloudy of a day as possible right as long as it doesn't rain I don't need the vitamin D let's let's let's let's have some clouds now and Dave I've got some supplements in my bag if you need any appreciate you thank you brother and there's another.

Just gorgeous backhand and keenum's not really committing to covering either side if he watches that replay and we're at a game point for devillier and a miss return yeah finishes it so in Rapid fashion big early lead in devillier runs through game two very easily we will have a deciding game three right after this.

Little more due to this wind that's up and down a little bit so devillier will end on the air quotes good size which is an advantage yeah so we'll see if Kingdom can get off to a good start which if side is as important as we think it is is very important fired up yeah and against a player like Jay if you hang the ball up even an inch.

Too high he's gonna finish it Christian did a great job of hitting a precise shot every single time in that first game he's gonna have to bring that level here if the ball is just a quarter of an inch different than where you think it is because of the conditions you will see misses.

He knows he's got that shot in his Arsenal I mean we saw it multiple times in game one we can forward him a replay of game one if he needs to see what it looks like just holding on for dear life get the kitchen line and the Rope was fraying but uh hung in there.

Yep not only having to hit a good shot but keeping his feet out off the line as well got to thank our referees watching for those feet Anita Johnson and Flores and Laura smart thank you to all the referees Jay's gonna give the little fist pump there.

Yeah he's like is that staying in yes indeed it does and he has fallen back on the forehand instead of being convicted staying down on it yeah the fade away that works so well in basketball doesn't work so well in pickleball he's tall but no hoop in sight.

Keenum again we saw that in game one he went for the go for Brooke because he's not going to win a long cat Mouse against somebody as tall as davilia just missed it took a bit of a funny bounce there it almost seemed like it hopped up on him yeah a little uh kick serve there which you don't usually see in pickleball.

And Keenum could not stay out of the kitchen I believe here yeah there it is the right oh yes and Anita as she pointed like like oh poor little you know she felt bad almost he was so far enough after being caught off balance so all over it yeah that's too good from Christian gotta tell himself fight fight for every.

Point you know he's here he's made it to this third game against such a high level opponent yeah and just sort of try and virtual memory that first 10 points devillier guessed wrong and got away with it there so feels like a eight or nine point.

Deficits just three wow oh you're kidding unbelievable get right here by davilius and he's at this ball too and just can't that's as good a ball as you will ever see to be able to get the paddle in the right place to hook that around the post look at Kingdom smiling again back to the respect of the players yeah.

That's too good from Christian and maybe it's just that maybe it's the holy mackerel he just hit this shot and I remember the joy of the sport again and now he's feeling more comfortable much better swing there though so those last few reminiscent of game one of course yeah and sometimes you know the viewer.

Can't see it on screen Christian's got it essentially hit lines multiple times in order to beat a player of this caliber it's not easy not easy by any stretch of the imagination but he's handled the situation well davilia I can't believe if he's set over to our booth so bad so we'll take his.

Word for it we saw it too you just can't get comfortable over here so the race to six here is enormous we will switch sides at six here in game three yes and it's hard to flush that when you're playing what that's a beauty yeah too good from Jay and he puts so much.

Pace on that shot it's near impossible to grab look at this hustle not going to be able to get there though well we know he's fast Dave that's the thing he's a big man but Court coverage is ridiculous that's a tremendous volley the Keenum ball was so close and low to.

The net oh he had an open court there just couldn't convert so Keenum went for the zero Blitz I'm just sending everybody and it worked oh so this is what you want to ask what makes a pro player versus others to not.

Panic with that ball so far behind devilier and to throw it into a place where he's back in the point and puts pressure tremendous ball same guy yeah and Christian knows that he can make that shot I mean again a very high level player that's why he's here on the court sharing the court with Jay.

But again a perfect example of why it's good to miss high and make your opponent hit another shot yeah the Net's unforgiving and that's what makes davilier such a strong singles player because he takes that drop which can get you back into a cat and mouse game away with his length yes.

That's beautiful yeah he took a lot of pace off that as you get closer to the net you want to take Pace off the ball and then create more of an angle obviously the harder you hit the ball the closer you are it's going to be easy to hit it out so he did a good job of dialing the speed back tries the short hop doesn't get it that.

Could have been huge to switch at 6-1 obviously if he gets the ball back he'll have a second chance at this but this feels like a pivotal time with the ball for Keenum foreign answers with that ball right there Dave do you think we're not seeing as much cat and mouse just because Jay's.

The type of player that thrives in that situation or is it more that both these players just Thrive off the drive yeah I think uh Kingdom doesn't want to do it and yeah devillier it's just not comfortable on the side he's on right now I'm sure you'd love to do it sure and the couple times that he has he's gotten.

Ahead in the point so settling into the elements so five two just catches the line too good from Keenum yeah the Millie is still looking at that we are on that Baseline so it looked good from our Vantage Point as well what a stab from davilia I mean that is a gorgeous ball from.

Keenum as you see it on the replay and that ball is going to bounce seven times in the kitchen with all the backspin and we will indeed switch here so 6-2 for devillier he's now going to the side he prefers can Keenum rally we'll find out foreign.

could you pass me the creamer why don't you just come into the kitchen and get the creamer I can't I can't come in the kitchen sure you can no I really can't you can come into the kitchen as long as you don't hit the ball out of the air.

All right that's why I stay out of kitchens all right we are back there's a good look at Jay davilier taking a little deep breath you can see the wind that we talked about in the wind sock just over his left shoulder just out of frame now and he admittedly his own words said he was.

Uncomfortable on the side that he got the lead on so let's see what he's got now yeah that looks comfortable looks like a nice nice perfect sofa to pull up and watch some football or pickleball yeah it's hard for anybody to get a shot like that and there's.

The value of the serve so if you go for your serve the wind at your back it's you know as you mentioned Clark the pressure of that return foreign it's a different player on that side good save for Keenum there at the.

Well it was Match Point down it had to be made yeah let's see if sometimes you can play a little loose when you're down bag look at that ball and a gorgeous ATP all right Mr Keenum and the referee stood her crowd too didn't she Dave she said run into me if you're gonna hit this ATP Anita Johnson.

Flores is like hey I have a job to do here and so does Keenum and very uh veteran move of kicking the ball into the corner there to just take a after that dead Sprint nice highlight there and there's the spot against a lot of players that's a good.

Ball to come in behind but 100 not that man do that against the five eight guys like me second match point for devillier oh Keenum was in jail with eight locks on the door and somehow got out of it see if he can take advantage get a couple more points here.

And pressure on Jay such a good volley from the villier third chance to close this out and move on for the 3C and Keenum says not right now thank you very much yeah I love the fight from Keenum he's he's not going to go down without a fight working his hardest on.

Every single point despite being down 10-3 in the third it's obviously got to be a little bit frustrated about that second game takes his time again I like it that's a good Surfer a couple weird bounces over in that in that area that uh have thrown off some returns not taking anything away from the surf.

Okay 410. oh wow absolutely plastered and hits the tape as hard as it can he's just like he needs to watch the beginning and when he got down big because now Keenum is swinging freely and it is the patented devillier Ernie that sends him to the next round Mr Keenum showed us a lot today yeah he.

Did I was super impressed with his level of play obviously in the first game I mean he wowed you and I both firing on all cylinders especially the Tui that two-handed backhand that he loves I'd say it's his favorite shot he was painting the line and you know a player of Jay's caliber recognized that he needed to step it up.

And he did in that second game and then he got off to a hot start in the third he sure did so the curse of warming up with me the night before is not a thing folks we'll be back after this foreign.

Foreign Clark what an entertaining start to the day two very fun matches we've talked about fun a lot today and we yup we think it's an important part of the pickleball experience and as the level of play rises in Pro pickleball having that element of this is the.

Entertainment business I have been very entertained so far yep likewise um Dave it's super fun to be here in the booth with you commentating these matches of course we're at the PPA tour this is highest level pickleball in the world and to be expected right we're on Championship Court here any Pro Tour.

Event Championship Court you're going to see some high level pickleball super excited to see who Barstool Sports said was the most Electric Man in sports Tyson McGuffin not just in pickleball let's just be clear on what that statement was the most electrifying person in sports yeah like hi Pat Mahomes you're in second place.

I mean how about the hair the mustache this is not an accident my man Tyson McGuffin knows how to Brand himself yes he does that's he's actually the reason why I myself am growing out my hair Dave there you go now he is going to be playing a PE teacher from the Austin area Mr Isaac Gonzalez welcome to the Stream.

There you see him he is ready to serve let's play Pickleball and McGuffin with just a vicious I don't care if you've got dodgeball planned for PE here comes the big fastball off the Selkirk paddle yeah he's bringing it from the start Dave Gonzalez is a practice partner of the great Brandon nespong so uh a lot of.

Good pickleball in Austin there's everything that makes McGuffin the number two seed on display right there Isaac himself looks like he's growing at his hair too I love people with some good lettuce that's right let's go and Gonzalez worried about uh kitchen infringement there so went for the uh.

Let's just call it the scenic route to get back into the court Ricky Taylor keeping an eye on that with Julia Morgan I like the idea of a lob into the wind which is where Gonzalez finds himself yeah and we talk about that too as a new kind of trend or an old Trend rather that's coming back as the lob we're.

Seeing a lot more high-level players starting to incorporate it into their game play so uh Gonzalez has called time out and while we've got a break uh big breaking news today in the pickleball World Clark is the vibe pickleball League was announced this morning in the first owner Mr Mark Cuban yeah of Shark Tank.

How about that huge news in pickleball today lots more of that information will be coming out over the next several weeks and months draft in December other owners will be announced yes uh just you know we talked about the elevation of the sport across the board and this is going to be a lot of fun to see how this develops 100 Dave.

You hate to call timeout and then miss a return but that is what our favorite pickleball PE teacher on Center Court did here and Gonzalez won his first match 11-7 12 14 12 10 and third wow he got a lot of playing against edberg Espinoza so that was a slight upset he's the 34 seed.

And everything's working for McGuffin McGuffin doesn't believe in hitting a backhand in that corner unless he absolutely has to what's the advantage of that no I mean obviously his forehand is stronger than his backhand most players traditionally have a weaker backhand so if you can move your feet and get around to that forehand shot.

It's going to open you up to picking out your angles a lot easier usually the backhand is a little bit more restrictive you can't do as much with it obviously we have players like Jay that hit incredible one-handed backhands but for Tyson I always encourage a player of his Fitness caliber run around to your.

Forehand if you can as long as you're again getting back into space not leaving yourself off the court too much he does that better than anybody Dave yeah mcguffin's feet are phenomenal it's a wicked little serve there oh all sorts of them it's a shame that didn't end better for Mr Gonzalez because.

Wicked little drop with all kinds of nasty Spin and he had McGuffin off the court just couldn't finish it so we're at snowman zero here and there's the pickleball footwork difference not I don't know who would win a 50-yard Dash but mcguffin's just there with the lateral.

Yeah Tyson's going to grab the agility course medal every single time no doubt about it but he'll beat some of those canines that do it for a living yeah I'd like to see Isaac just maybe go for a few shots now you know he's down 9-0 in the first game build a confidence build some confidence you know and I think you know he's going.

He's kind of got that you mentioned earlier but a crafty kind of funky little slice shot on his forehand the only issue with that is a lot of times you float the ball players like this they'll take a floating ball and they'll finish it every single time so yes and unfortunately for Mr Gonzalez and his students who may be.

Watching this is a pickle point for McGuffin of course means winning 11 nothing if you're new to that term and that'll do it so the two seed all over Gonzalez now we mentioned Gonzalez played an epic first match so uh see if we can get settled in here at The Baird wealth management Texas open.

Number duper because ratings shouldn't be a surprise download the app and claim your free profile today I haven't even started yet oh thank you welcome back everybody Mr McGuffin rolled Isaac Gonzalez has got to just throw.

That away doesn't he yeah exactly we talk about being a goldfish that's why I say to a lot of the people I give lessons to there's nothing you can do about a point that's already over move on to the next Point move on to the next game and unfortunately for the Goldfish it was not fed the right amount of food.

There's the short return gets smashed no definitely forgot to feed it maybe didn't have the water temperature at the right height either we'll be bringing fish stories all day for you folks but the the real story here is McGuffin first match of the day is just on point and putting Gonzalez.

Just in bad spots this entire match it's too good and talk about running around your forehand I mean how about that inside out I thought he was going to be in the booth to hit that he was so wide he was in the blue he's like it evaded the green as if it was on fire there's that big serve he's known for Gonzalez just hanging on for dear life.

Up there and it's an intimidating position to be where you're just it's all running downhill on you and McGuffin tracking everything yeah and gets himself back in the point he wants that one back I mean he makes that almost in his sleep okay Gonzalez good look at the man the.

PE teacher from outside of Austin and one of the few few Puma outfitted players we are not used to seeing that brand as as prevalent as some of the others in this Pro game but it looks pretty sharp Dave looks I mean his this is too well fitted players today you got the McGuffin look which you can count on and then.

Got the Hue deaf puma look over there for Gonzalez we gotta just get Gonzalez on the scoreboard here for his just you know you're on Center Court problem is McGuffin ain't gonna give you anything ah Gonzalez answers a great ball from McGuffin and there's no one on the court.

Cheering more for that shot than McGuffin yeah I love it you'd love to see that sportsmanship just the appreciation for a high level play that's so good from Isaac great job by Gonzalez there he told me he's a uh long time point guard in basketball so he's definitely got the quickness we've seen it and able to do something with the.

Ball in trouble so just a little slice drop he's trying it's he's got the wind behind him so making that as you mentioned earlier it floats a little bit plus the yeah it's gonna be hard to get that to dive 5-0 what.

And Dave the stands are filling up here it's always great to see especially on the first big day of the tournament it's Thursday things have just started here at the Oasis pickleball Club but so this is the largest tournament in Texas history it's just too good too good for McGuffin tracks it down and.

Again when he's in trouble he safely puts the ball in the kitchen a lot of people ask me what's the difference As you move up level to level what do you do when you're in trouble do you panic or do you not no Panic in this man's game not at all so much composure so much athleticism I mean he does everything right and it.

Goes to show by how many medals how many successful wins how many big accomplishments this man has in his career Gonzalez just can't find a point on his serve here still looking for that elusive first Dent of the scoreboard and he's running short on time.

No Dave I don't know that Isaac's hit one forehand or backhand Drive I think everything has pretty much been a drop and especially with windier conditions yeah we certainly saw Keenum ripping winners from that side of the court and there we go and the crowd there's the there we go I.

Love again having fun he's on the scoreboard big smile you only see the back of uh Gonzalez there but uh yeah no it's a beautifully constructed Point by him he's got that sort of little flicky serve and again Gonzalez firing up the crowd as you.

Mentioned starting to fill up the bleachers just off to the left side of your screen the overcast Skies remain which is a blessing for a singles player yeah yeah Gonzalez doesn't look interested in passing at all just I'm going to drop it and play cat and mouse and this is this is the master of that right right.

And to clarify you know I made a comment that he's not driving many balls that's okay there are some players you know Frank Anthony Davis being one of them almost drops nearly everything perfectly fine everybody should play in my opinion to their strengths that being said you need to play to the situation and the conditions as well and I think a.

Lot of his drops are floating a little bit too much we're seeing Tyson kind of get on the front end of the point from the start that serves sails a little deep and McGuffin going into the win yeah the great part about pickleball is there's no right way to play Pickleball there's a right way for you to play Pickleball.

You just need to be able to adjust if you're playing pro yes why not because your best may not beat their best but something else might so Gonzalez has a pair down 8-2 in game two and there's the so folks if you'd like to slice your returns that's fine but if you put it up in the air and the winds.

At your back the rotation of the ball plus the holes in the ball get the air behind it in trouble so again sportsmanship on display here is Gonzalez was saying I think that was wide and McGuffin overruled him over ruling him so it's the double overrule yes which means they taught me minus one times minus one's a positive back in the.

Day so we'll go with it yeah I was never a big math guy Dave but I'll take your word for it good look at the man from Idaho former wrestler Scrappy and that says I I will help you yeah he'll take that all day long and and some of this is the experience.

Of what am I able to do against the best players on Center Court the value of being able to watch this back oh and a little change up serve oh change up serve third shot lob combination seen it before but obviously very low percentage high risk low reward there.

Try something different though we will sure we will definitely give marks to that idea no doubt just wide there so we are at match point for the two seed McGuffin here yet the other thing that Tyson does so well you know we talk about him running around to that forehand side and you know a viewer might say when I was.

Leaving the court wide open now he's not using his backhand what he does though in that situation is disguises where he's going to go next and unfortunately Isaac Gonzalez's day on Center Court ends with a referee commentary yep pulled a wide stick here on Center Court good battle.

From Gonzalez good speed but just way too much McGuffin so McGuffin is moving on here at The Baird wealth management Texas up foreign.

It's only one foreign pickleball paddle answers the angel question of how to get paddle speed and control with the same paddle and one grip and this is it pro XR gives you more spin greater control and quicker reloads on every shot in the game because you always have that constant feel for that leverage and control and.

Paddle speed that we're all looking for pro XR is the most revolutionary technology in pickleball foreign you don't get the moments everyone talks about the moments no one sees early morning practice late night drills running it over and over.

You don't get the crowd without the quiet everyone sees the glory the metal the podium but every winning shot 's right here paddle tech let's go again a lot of us miss hit the ball I know I.

Missed hit the ball a lot um thank you Miller Lite has more taste than only one more calorie than Michelob Ultra thank you.

Thank you thank you he stands a Titan in the arena a legend of the game that holds one thing Above All Else the will to endure ferocious an attack and Relentless in his pursuit to be the best to be number.

One Tyson McGuffin and Selkirk sport champions of pickleball foreign good about himself what do you think about when a lefty is on the other side yeah I mean I'm a lefty myself a.

Lot of people comment that they hate playing against lefties or that they didn't realize that you know I was a lefty after a couple points they are noticing different angles and that's really what it's all about obviously the majority of players at the pro level and in general are right-handed so a righty is used to seeing similar patterns.

Similar angles similar shots repeatedly when you play a lefty you have to adjust to their skill set to their shot selection so we'll see how Ben adjusts here obviously Ben's not arguably the number one overall player in the world um and he's seen it he's done it yeah he's.

Been there he's played lefties before um so you know I have all the confidence in the world that Ben's going to be able to handle this situation that being said as we mentioned Yvonne is one heck of an athlete all right let's play Pickleball John's gets the ball back to start Julia Morgan is our referee.

Good look at the top seed Ben Johns and we talked about McGuffin running around the forehand Clark yup and Ben does it so well too you run around that forehand you've got an option down the line you've got an option Cross Court and with how fast Ben hits the ball he's making Yvonne essentially guess.

Interesting we'll see this more when the ladies take the court but jacobyevich chose not to come in on the return there a rare sighting in men's singles for the returner yeah and as you mentioned Dave yakovic new player we may see him stay back we may see him do some unconventional.

Things he's still learning the game but as you mentioned he lives in the Texas area and I encourage any player that really wants to go pro to put themselves in a spot like Texas California Arizona where you can train with such hot players struggling on that hard approach from Ben at the moment it's got to be able to.

Stick that backhand volley and John's just pounding serves oh my just absolute filth from John's off the court not going around the post coming back door and the Soccer Star could only watch it yep see what he's trying to do there but I again Dave I don't think we'll see too.

Many drops too much cat and mouse with the wind with the conditions you hang that ball up it's going to be really hard to drop it in without giving your opponent a great chance to to knock it back at the Baseline yeah I think where the ball is will have even more of a deciding factor on that and there's definitely nerves and.

Yakovich's game here sure hey congrats you uh had a great win over the 16th seed now go play Ben Johns on Center but that is a big win for him beat Kim luring 11-3 in the third he had to play this morning to even get into the main draw so this is a guy that had to qualify into the main Drive he's been playing.

Under the lights at the crack of dawn and still going yeah so for people not super familiar with either the PPA tour format or with kind of how Pro pickleball has evolved the draws tend to be very large especially PPA tour events so they set up a play and draw to get into the main draw.

Yes over 60 players total in the draw inclusive of those that entered and had to qualify in like jacobyevich did so right couple points here for him another dink star player so the Dank star is taking over Dallas here yeah we've seen two now on Center so good day for them.

And that's just Nifty and even though John's was in a hurry to the gut to the kitchen line did he look in a hurry no he looked like he was strolling with a older dog who just walks at its pace yeah I mean talk about a player that looks relaxed it's Ben Johns 24 7. and he moves so efficiently yes so he.

Actually doesn't need to do as much work because he anticipates where that ball is going in his positioning is second to none that's a good ball off the bounce there because I think John's will be one of the few that will try to drop it just because he loves the cotton mouse game as well sure.

Foreign and the third percentage for jacobyevich has to come up to make this a much tighter match or this will be very easy for John's and there is that Wicked backhand he just holds it and the interesting thing about his one-handed backhand that you see there is two-handed backhand people.

Hit that shot with the tip of their paddle he hits it towards the bottom closer to the handle with the way he holds it he can hurt you and so many ways thank you my name is Catherine parento and I've.

Been playing pickleball for almost six years I travel a lot to play in tournaments I'm always on planes and I see a lot of people when I travel I need to make sure that I stay healthy I need to support my immune system so that's the reason why I use the pure way C plus.

So jacobyevich calls time out after the patented one-handed backhand roll winner from John's that sails wide and when you go for the serve like John's did there you flip the script on the point construction it is Johnson gets to the net and that's.

Trouble yeah yeah a player like Ben is going to take the net and he and all chances he gets and I mean once he's up at the kitchen you're back near impossible to score a point on him okay so let's see the thirds have been the opportunity for.

Mr yakovievich who you see there and if there isn't a if you just go one two you can the third is irrelevant they talk about the third shot drop that's right why is that so important yeah it didn't matter there at all that's a beauty yeah.

That's really good and you can see that he loves that Lefty forehand just Ben hasn't given him the opportunity to hit that shot too many times or if he has he's put him in a really tough spot so a little confidence two quick points here oh and you heard the squeaking of those soccer feet which is an advantage man if.

You have good footwork in this sport that is huge just gotta roll that back in not over swing at it yeah he's just sort of caught in between on what to do with these big booming serves from John's and we're at game point and that puts pressure on you making a.

Return and you're going to get misses from it so jacobyevich had a couple of moments of Brilliance there but the top seed looking very comfortable we are at The Baird wealth management Texas open.

One Vision welcome back everybody Dave Fleming here with Clark Benassi and Ben Johns looking like the top seed he's on the local Pro demolition tour as he took out Brandon French in his first match another DFW player and playing Mr Yvonne yakovic.

See if he can you know a lead just sounds good just yeah you want even one nothing make him rip one of those four hands yeah he just needs one to build some confidence there it is and he gets a come on out of his mouth there so this is a determined player he gives us.

A smile there too Dave you and I are in the booth here off the corner of the Court just a smile to say you know what okay so it gets that first point we talked about so there's Ben Johnson decked out in the Yola gear and what a presence that company brought.

To pickleball this year just coming Yvonne you've already scored Brother come on over there we go that's really good there so jacobyevich looking very good if he gets the forehand that he can paste he has the footwork to come in behind it and take advantage yes yes.

2-0 yeah pickleball's so interesting I almost think about it as you're playing two different courts the kitchen is one Court the Baseline and the rest of the court is another one right and you want that ball dipping at the net into the kitchen oh.

Finish your thought on that yeah so you want that ball dipping at the net into the kitchen so that your opponent has to hit upwards on the ball is reaching for the ball sometimes hitting in into the net and setting yourself up for that next Drive which is how Yvonne got that how Yvonne got that second point so.

It's got that great Lefty Dipper and he's got to just really rely on it go so John's is the one caught guessing here and good job by jacobyevich to go behind him so tied at two game two second match of the day for Ben Johns that's a good return and you do not get.

Extra points for hitting the guaranteed right side no I wish you did because I'd have a ton of points Dave I'd be racking them up you know one of the other things we're seeing a lot in pickleball obviously we're seeing a ton as the sport evolves but the lead tape on pass you can see it with Ben's powder you can see it with.

Jacobyevich's paddle adding a little bit more sturdiness a little bit more power to the paddle phase getting it to play the way you want some people like it heavy meaning the top of the paddle is heavier and some like it around the handle right it's a way you can personalize your.

Paddle there's a lot of ways to do that okay so jacobyevich got off to a nice little start needs to find one of those forehands needs to make the serve yeah he wants that one back just a little bit too flat and it looked like he was fading away as he was hitting that shot we've talked about it before.

Your feet need to be set with your weight going forward once your weight starts leaning back and your feet aren't set you're moving around it's gonna be a lot harder to hit an accurate shot unlucky there is the opportunity was roped off the tape and it kicked wide because of the pace so so that's a ball right there that let.

Me see where it lands yeah he's got to go Ernie that as the Lefty he would have been and we saw davilia just completely take that shot away Christian Keenum earlier there's the Texas open some pumpkins left over from Halloween we'll be right back foreign I felt like I had to always drink water.

Over and over but I still felt a little bit dizzy by the end of the day but once I tried to incorporate more electrolytes in my daily life it really helped me out my favorite thing about the pickleball cocktail is the flavor it tastes great I drink the pickleball cocktail every morning to make sure that I stay hydrated throughout the whole day it's.

Important to drink first thing in the morning if you wait until you play you usually eat too late you start feeling dehydrated when it comes to hydration don't wait before it's too late thank you.

foreign we are back the former pro soccer player in Croatia Yvonne yakovievich using everything in his power to try and stop this calls the timeout yeah not too well known right now but I'm sure he will be Dave yep nice little one-handed backhand roll that catches.

The line we weren't sure on the call over there but uh in there so the timeout works for them yeah I think one big opportunity for him is to hit a better serve because John's is choosing how he wants these points to start and you just can't do that sure and when yokovic watches this particular point back he bailed off the kitchen.

When he was actually an okay position but it's the threat but you got to just throw the threat away and play ah there's the Ernie that we were looking for joking with the referee too right idea and I think as he gets more and more into the game plays more Pro tournaments.

Obviously he'll be more comfortable with that move shredded a tad late and I like you said you're ready to tad late it just speaks to the point where in this game it happens so quickly you need to make the decision right away stick to it and be confident with it yeah because on that one you're reading.

The paddle and if you read the paddle face correctly the ball is going that leads you to the ball now that's a skill but again Court time teaches all that's really nice bye yakovich right there yeah it was a great job of him working.

His way back into the middle of the Court after being pulled out wide or is that dipping shot we talked about right at the net so a couple in a row he was pumping that fist earlier hasn't brought that back out yet mid game here we'll see if one more would do it.

Could try trying to get that such a good angle to Short volley by Johnson jacovich acknowledges that with a nice shot comment again the sportsmanship today fantastic not that I'm surprised but it's really good today and that's really good as well yeah.

Floated the return as you mentioned the wind's going to carry that ball upwards on a slice return versus a drive return Ben took advantage and teed off on it just deep on the serve there four nine it's go time for Yvonne oh the righty look at this.

Hangs in there and stabs it with the opposite hand and keeps it in that's impressive yeah I love that he mixed in a drop there in the right scenario didn't go all Drive yeah too good from John's there yeah and uh as I literally was saying that uh yakovich says too good over to us so uh we don't ask to get involved but the.

Players like to involve us I appreciate it yeah it makes our job easier let's get her off the line good handle oh and yokovic goes back down the line there and he yells it come on that was well played yeah and I love that he's pumping himself up that's huge for his confidence not just in this match but.

Moving forward yes as a player yeah because you can play with wreck games with these best players but when someone's keeping score a couple of guys hanging out at the table talking about him and it it it's invaluable in your ascent and you govanovich is having some fun here and saying that's why I missed that.

Ball smiles again on the court I love it yeah that's great to see and sometimes players will ask to see a new ball because if it's brand new and rarely well brand new well I'll be put in play it'll play a little different that that ball just sounds faster to me.

Just probably a little fresher than the ball they were just using so you cover you have it changing in there yeah I'm loving his effort in the second game and again Ben John just sticks those volleys and they end up two inches from the Baseline then you just gotta fight your way.

Dave the other thing I noticed too was on Ivan yokivit yakovich his backhand he's stepping across instead of having an open stance we could talk a little bit more about what that means after this point okay there you can tell them about it right here because that's one where he did hit.

With an open stance and used we always talk about the left hand on the Tui but a lefty it's the right hand that's well done foreign open stance it's not only going to open up the angle for you but it's also going to allow you to slide back into the middle of the court on that next shot.

That shot off your opponent's paddle face oh and after all the fight to get back within three it's that big Ben John serve and the difference in the serving and the serving pace so folks here's what we talked about earlier Vibe pickleball it's coming it'll make its debut in February there's.

Going to be all sorts of announcements a lot of us played college high school team tennis all of those things and now having Vibe pickleball coming in it's going to be fun to see these these players playing with new partners playing against new new scoring formats all sorts of things so it's going to be a.

Fun vibe is what it's going to be of course a little bit I can't wait to see all of the details as they come out over the next several months so uh get your Vibe on everybody yeah I'm super excited for it just to test them into how fast the sports grows all right we are back yeah kovievich calls his last time out and we got Match.

Point here and uh that's an authoritative stamp on a victory right there I'd say so boom I really like what I saw from uh the local DFW area player jacobyevich really fought his way into that match and uh made John's beat him and had to beat him with his best as he did on the last ball there so we'll be back with the next.

Folks welcome back there she is the top player in women's singles and she is going to be a problem today she has been a problem all year long I'm talking of course about Annalee Waters 15 years of age and Clark it's interesting.

She plays with Ben Johns and her mom and her favorite event is singles it's pretty wild I mean talk about somebody that embodies the word Phenom this young lady has risen through the ranks she has dedicated so much time so much effort so much hard work to perfecting her game and it goes to show it's talking about it a couple weekends.

Ago at the PPA DC open it is almost strange if you don't see her in a gold medal match let alone grabbing first place at any tournament she plays then all right here we go Maria Lopez to serve let's play Pickleball okay so Maria Lopez local from Frisco Texas jumps right into The Fray here playing.

Top seed and you're gonna see laser beams from the forehand and then even more known for the Tui on the other side rolls it hits it with pace she is a legitimate force and will be for some time.

Dave have you seen Maria play I have not so this is a first sighting for for both of us here yeah and I'm sure the nerves have to be running a little bit for her yeah we talk about if you just leave your return in the Middle with not a lot on it great players are going to feast.

And that's just ridiculous right there so that was actually a good sometimes a good short slice return that stays low creates a problem for your opponent well most opponents wow clean winner from the Baseline on a great deep Ball by Lopez I'd say Emily Waters is ready to play.

Ball today foreign yeah well I think what sets her apart from so many other players I mean obviously it's her it's her success it's how good she is she comes out firing from the start she doesn't start slow she doesn't miss many shots treats every match as if it's a.

Championship yeah and one of the uh smarter players on tour too and at just 15 uses her timeouts better than most understands the game and the Angles and everything else and while she's known for balls like that when she is pressed to play defense it's as good as anybody as well and we've.

Been talking a lot of soccer today yeah so she's got that background as well yes she does almost scary to think about where she'll be when she's 18 20. 25. it's it's her choice and you know last year she played with knee braces and not necessarily braces but just um has gotten that completely out now.

She's a spit she's got a physio she's working with you know had had just was working through that and now I mean the movement not that it wasn't good but you could tell there was something now spectacular that is a great ball from Maria Lopez.

There great stab volley Maria's got sunglasses on her head almost like she's you know ready for the beach or ready for a nice little lunch outing yeah it's it's relaxed look about her yeah case that sun comes through the clouds she is going to be ready immediately.

That is brightening up a little bit here Dave yeah still cloudy though still a little breeze in the air and I think as you mentioned earlier the singles players are going to love that yeah the fact that we still have the lights on after noon here in Rockwall Texas the suburb of Dallas is.

Unexpected good Hustle by Lopez but annalize just all over it Damon Berry making sure Annalee Waters is set up to serve with nine she will serve on the left side if you're odd and another ball inside out on the line we don't even have to talk over the replay just watch it.

And the two-handed backhand winner from the Baseline and Anna Lee Waters ladies and gentlemen as you mentioned Clark Benassi she is ready to go to start the women's section we'll be back in my bag now match point it's all up to me nothing can get in my way and when they ask what are you gonna do next I'll say I'm going.

We're going to Margaritaville you can go to Margaritaville 2. visit Margaritaville resorts.com dropping a lot of money on sunglasses always seemed crazy to me I'd wear them a few times and then I'd lose them or break them that's why we created Shady Rays polarized Shades at a great price that.

Welcome back everybody there you see Anna Lee Waters quick work of game one and continues to hit Baseline winners against Maria Lopez just replay what I said a second ago right exactly yeah and you know you're playing Annalee Waters there's not a lot you can do no.

Matter how good you are but I would like to see Maria try to work her way into the net if she can okay A little slice backhand gave Annalee a little problem there so let's see if flow pass can get on the board here what yeah just too good.

Too good deep surf short return lather rinse repeat Dave during the commercial break we were you and I were talking about the pop just the sound that comes off of Annalee or Al's paddle it's tremendous you mean that one right there yeah that's not the one sacrifice talking.

About there you see for those of you that want to try the two-handed backhand takes a lot of practice and the left hand is so critical to Rolling that ball over there a little hop from her first time to get it to go in.

Just misses that one let's see if Maria Lopez can find something here yeah the other thing that I think sets Al or Anna Lee and as well as so many other big players apart from others is that they get it they get they get these matches done as efficiently as possible as quickly as possible.

Don't waste time on any points they try to conserve their energy get through the match and move on to the next one yeah because everything's cumulative at a tournament and this is a woman that has won multiple Triple Crowns meaning she's playing as many matches as they will allow her to play yeah incredible that we're talking about.

A 15 year old 16 year I mean just with so much experience already uh unheard of I mean Lopez sneaks in beautiful little skate half volley and the reply close just on the outside of the line Maybe foreign Lopez got to the net we've been asking for it.

As she may have heard us a traditionally women's singles were not seeing as many players going into than that or if they are it's taking them a little bit longer to do so whereas in the men's game it's almost always about getting your foot getting your feet to that kitchen line all right.

Big deep serve there and we are at double pickle point unfortunately for Maria Lopez and that'll do it so Anna Lee Waters shows why she's the best player in the world and having a nice conversation with uh Maria Lopez after the match Damon Berry it goes through the paperwork and Anna.

Ratings don't have to be hard duper optimized for accuracy optimized for fun download the app and cling your free profile today I guess I'm sort of unique in how I was introduced to the sport because I was sort of watching from the sidelines for.

Years as my brother was ascending the top of the sport pickleball was kind of funny and then it crept up on me in terms of what it was to me so I started playing in early 2016 in that time there were a couple professional tournaments so I didn't have any plans with it I just thought it was fun I played U.S open for the heck of it Ben and I are.

Both competitive we like to win all the time and of course in the golden match there's more on the line so you want to win those then John's having a moment it was all John's Brothers ain't control from the start they had their foot on the gas pedal and did not let up if you're the Target that means you're in a good position when it's.

Where other people want to be so I definitely don't underestimate or undervalue that I really it's about trying to trying to stay on top you know I mean people say you don't have upwards to go and that's that's never exactly true it's a constant fight still and that's really what it's more about is the the grinding the fight my number one.

Reason and why I continue to play Pickleball is is the fact that I get to spend time on court with my little brother it's just really cool that we found a sport that we can compete in and play together let alone actually be at the top of this work so pickleball really did in many ways come out of nowhere it's very sociable.

So when you go to play you might have a billionaire and gender and and just your average housewife on the same court and wanting to win wanting to play well and enjoying themselves out of nowhere might be the title right now but years from now it's going to be something very different.

Welcome back everybody Dave Fleming here and thanks for the thumbs up there Anna Lee Waters Clark Benassi in the booth with me and uh Clark we were just reviewing the draw it's been upset City around incredible grounds incredible results the thing that just baffles me Dave about some of.

These large tournaments is how many high-level players we have you think they're going to get up against each other something crazy is going to happen and we've seen a number of crazy results so far yeah Dylan Frazier was upset we've got a number of guys that we see some of the time unfortunately we've had a couple of.

Uh guys withdraw Frank Anthony Davis yes Tyler loong did not uh hit the mat today for whatever reason we hope they're both healthy and uh you know Frasier is came in playing very very well and Brandon Lane at the 45 seed wins 11 9 11 4. so maybe we'll get to see Mr Lane I'll hear a little later but the match we have in.

Front of us is a beauty yeah I'm excited for it Dave if you haven't seen Pablo Tellez number one shame on you and secondly you are going to see a tremendous Southpaw here yes you are again we talk about the skill and the power that Lefty possesses and just how much of a different look that gives your opponent.

So crafty with that left-handed forehand he's got a great overall game comes from a tennis background like many of the many of these high level players uh same with his opponent Jay but it's gonna be a great one Dave this is a good one davilier Tellez to serve let's play Pickleball Pablo will take every and all net courts.

That stay a millimeter inside the line and force deviliate a retreat yeah Pablo from Columbia Jay from France for really nice International matchup here on our hands totally love it and you know we've got Lucy Cove Lova from Slovakia we just had Yvonne yokova Village from Croatia to name just a few.

Dave we mentioned that pickleball can be such a chess match so much strategy and mental fortitude involved Pablo actually likes to play chess in his free time yes it does so I love to say it's just not Checkers well maybe I don't want to play Knight to Rook for against this guy and you don't want to leave balls on.

That man's forehand in the middle of the Court no good start for Telus so when we saw davilier before he was finding his rhythm against Christian Keenum then beat a very good player in Gabe Davis in the second round that's a fuzz or something yeah you know that's another Trend we've seen.

In the Fashion World of pickleball I guess is the arm sleeves that these Pliers are starting to wear for sweat and sun protection some of the guys are going with tights as well underneath the shorts so uh you know what keeps your body warm comfortable everybody's probably a little different.

There but there are the arm sleeved this buddy from Wichita of course Pat Smith likes to roll one of those up Dave I'm going to make a wild prediction here that I think this match is going to go three games okay there you go Clark benassi's on the.

Now going with the prediction game here in the booth an unprompted so here we go yeah there's just not a lot to separate these two guys they both possess what it takes to make it all the way to the gold medal match and there you see the mirror image of a lefty running around that backhand and this is the opposite side of where.

Davilier struggled earlier so you can't say here we go again with the side tremendous effort by Pablo Tellez there just couldn't quite find it now in this court you have a lot of room on the sides on like some Center Court sure you're running into a fence right there just couldn't quite bring that back.

Foreign and there is that beautiful one-handed backhand of devillier yep all Pablo could do is nod his head and say it's a great shot sometimes you just gotta tip your cap even if you really don't want to but uh Pablo is at least wearing a cap so he has that option that's available too and.

Jay's with the signature headband look yeah an early lead is so important obviously you've got to be serving to score a point so or you can get out to a lead earlier in the match the more pressure you're putting on your opponent it's a great return from davilia there nods his head yeah yeah my my return hit.

The line not that not to tell us was just confirming what he already knew boy yeah again the wind is at devillier's back so the wind was unable to help that return Stay in nice job by tell us of going yeah I'm going to hit it hard cross court or no I'm not yeah and how about that footwork.

Staying off the kitchen line Angela Lumen great local referee calling the action for us yeah the issue with the Inside Out forehand what he went for there is you really do pull yourself off the court if that shot's not perfect you're out of position.

Oh my goodness this is an almost impossible angle with a pickleball paddle hooked it too much such a good idea from Jay too high on the drive from telas there yeah and the Breeze is picking up the Sun is it trying to peek its way out of the.

Clouds now that's an interesting Dynamic we have on the court now yeah certainly loving the temperature but now you can hear it in the microphone a little bit the Gusty part of the wind that really will will affect play foreign Pablo tell us shut up that first volley.

Was tremendous and then his feet are there for the reply that's a great point unbelievable work from Pablo okay so a discussion about calling the score nice forehand from telez there yeah we see players go to the tower sometimes to slow the pace of the game down Pablo likes to at least recollect.

His thoughts slowly before stepping back up into that box and just complaining to the referee a little bit that needs a little bit more time wait till I'm at the line to call the scores his request and the first Dipper sets up the next one wow that's a great Scamper from telas.

But just too much pressure from davilia foreign that's great pickleball right there yeah and I love I love the scream from him at the end popping himself up I've experimented with being quiet being loud and I think for me and a lot of these players being quiet almost makes you more nervous yeah I think sometimes you.

Got to let it out and just be natural yeah I mean there's people watching you play obviously in the crowd obviously those of you thank you for joining us give them something to get behind you on yeah I got a gift in the in the booth here I thought you were gonna sign that ball.

For before you put it back just like then you know you see the the scribble and it messes up the rotation just misses that one so davilia in a four-point hole here in game number one wind is coming in sun is coming in that was a tremendous return but.

Devillier there's a lot of players have been very uncomfortable with where that ball netted out especially those that like to run around their forehand because that would have been way out of position yes within two yeah big yell from one of the fans for Jay see if he can feed off that energy.

Foreign yeah Pablo's doing a great job of making Jay move not allowing Jay to sit in the same spot and tee off time and time again that's gonna be the key for him yeah his Force meaning his first volley have been really good tell us using that zero zero two sell.

Kirk paddle that has a lot of Pop foreign such a strong wrist there you know that's the key when you're bending down for a dipping shot which we again talk about is such a lethal shot having the ability to really lock that wrist in place and get the ball back and deep does such a great job of that.

Such a huge serve there might tell as really went for it and got the candy he wanted and it was a fun size bar and he wanted a full size so yeah that that happens wow the quality on that point until that last ball was outstanding yeah we're gonna see tons of points like that in this match Dave and these guys.

Are two of um two of the biggest grunters I would say in the male game too which adds a lot of flair to the match that's gonna stay in and be weird I just felt it when it was up in the air yeah we'll talk about it more and more but hitting another shot making your opponent hit another shot one more ball.

Yep and you heard tell us apologize as he did not hit it clean but hit it hit it right where he wanted so tell us is up to villier calling timeout will be right back foreign we are back folks in the former.

University of West Florida Argonaut Pablo Tellez is up 9-5 on the number three seed devillier wow and just striping forehands yeah you don't want to give him a chance to whack the forehand because that's what he does Dave puts it in a great spot every single time.

It's gonna stay and also that will not wow what a point so davilia saves the game point teles is everywhere he's making him hit another one and another one and smartly using the wind the wind is in his face so throw it up there let the wind play with it I mean these Force meaning that first.

Volume yeah outstanding from Telus yeah they're both making each other work but Pablo I'd say it's on the front foot here in this first game I mean he's just been so sharp second chance at game one yeah what makes Pablo so lethal too is he hits so much Top Spin you're seeing a.

Lot of high-level women's and men's players doing so where they're brushing up on the ball to get it to dip down at the last second foreign another souvenir in the booth sure you're not wearing a ball bag I know it's it's come to me twice in the.

Same yeah come on now you know it's again great man tell us at the kitchen line is just really strong so far not so far it's usually like that but it when you have to hit another really good ball consistently that's why the score is where it's at.

Oh and a missed return will do it so Pablo tell us playing very well takes game number one and will take confidence with that into game number two this was an authoritative he was ahead all the way there's the Oasis in Rockwall Texas home of the Baird wealth management Texas.

Many of us we just charge ahead because planning for your future takes time and right now thinking about your financial future takes on new meaning at Baird our financial advisors have guided individuals and families to achieve their goals through every crisis Evolution and groundbreaking idea for over 100 years that's the difference.

Between thinking you're ready for what lies ahead and knowing you've planned for it now that's different discover the bare difference foreign thank you Dave Fleming back with you here folks and Pablo tell us playing fantastic.

Devillier the third seed's gonna have to raise his level and teles goes back door on that and off to a good start here in game two Dave I would not want to be playing Pablo right now he looks so sharp fantastic unfazed by the environment I mean he's ready to go.

As the wind at his back for this game and that was one of those where I think I'd like to take out of there maybe not let me let it bounce maybe not a deer it's too late you talk about making that decision right away and sticking to it sorry but an important sorry there for devillier just not letting tell us get out in front as.

He did in game number one just tremendous we were at the J devillier backhand Clinic I mean I was tired just watching him but I would have liked to have seen him maybe drop that while it was very low a lot more difficult to get Top Spin on that ball.

It's a beautiful again we talk about the return and it is so critical but you got to stick volleys when guys are hitting their passing shots with this level of precision these two gentlemen are doing it he knew it was 99 he's losing the point and yet still went for every effort to.

Get there you never know yeah and we don't see too many drops and singles that being said it's great to mix it in every once in a while when your opponent's back because generally you're expecting your opponent to continue to keep you back at the Baseline so I love that Pablo mixed it.

Up there just wide I think wow yes so that's in the opposite corner from where we're at so we're just waiting for a call another great exchange between tell us at the kitchen and devillier hitting laser beam backhands at him.

So there's the advantage of the short slice return in singles just don't give your opponent a lot of choices yep yeah Jay's not too happy with himself knows he's just giving Pablo too many opportunities on his forehand a lot of Me Myself and I conversation for the Frenchman right there time he made devilier did make Tellez.

Play a backhand volley off balance and devillier frustrated on this side again so I gotta fight through that or this will be over in two yeah he can't let the frustration frustration eat him away just got to focus on the next point are you kidding me Jay he's there oh wow.

Unbelievable athleticism from the French the volley that he got back to start that tell us hit that as hard as he could from from the kitchen line should have been worth two oh that's that's as good a forehand as you're gonna see watch him get the footwork set.

There's that open stance you talked about tell us had options and devilier was able to handle it the other great thing these two players do really well Dave and a lot of the top guys is they hold that paddle face into the very last second in order to not discover or in order to.

Disguise where they're going to go with the ball I mean it makes such a big difference between telegraphing where you're gonna go oh and the villier chose to go body here on this ball coming up right here takes it right at him okay drop that in yeah go into the cat and mouse there but.

No Pablo's a pretty tall guy himself I mean he's got a lot of reach Jay's trying to get himself pumped up and I feel like that's when he plays his best for sure come On's a couple yells to himself a couple fist pumps yep that third comes up short so tell us is happy I think he was okay if I hadn't helped him get the ball before.

Like let me take three more steps yeah happily walks over and gets the ball on J side neither party complaining but again it's it's management of everything he's so critical uh Jay as you mentioned just doesn't feel too comfortable on the side that he's on right now but you know Pablo played on that side got the first game.

Both players have to deal with the same conditions Jay's gonna really have to fight here that's so if you're able to dip it like that into the wind then it'll be a backboard for you and dive it down that's so nice by davilier there ties us up 2-2 in game two.

Two two you know this is uh we talked about uh the local Yvonne he should watch he should watch tell as a serve it's big dipping and deep yeah and the other thing that's super important to your point I think for any of these players making their way up the.

Pro ranks is to find somebody whose game they can emulate whose game they can really watch is an inspiration to really guide themselves on this journey yeah even I've had interviewed Ben John several times and he talks about taking a little something from this and a little something from that and you know everyone we were far from a finished.

Product as a global pickleball being yes that's a cheap one there so and there's so much video now that you can try things yeah that's a sorry not sorry he's not even in the realm of sorry there that was sorry fist pump sorry fist pump it's you eliminate the sorry the minute you fist pump okay.

Yeah yeah he's I mean again we've talked about sportsmanship all day long here in a very positive way for those of you just joining us yes that ball skidded off the line you can tell when it does that and devillier was like nope because that Ball's got to be called in.

Wow yeah I mean incredible athleticism got very aggressive at the kitchen line kept his feet moving attacked that ball such a good job from Jay yeah that one-handed backhand that he loves going across court on you know two things one he's hitting into the wind it's a little too difficult the other.

Thing is his one-handed backhand he likes to go cross-court on is actually to pop into a forehand yep so we talk about the issues of playing a lefty that's one of them clinical from Pablo I mean he's taking all of his opportunities and that's where that fourth the volley was left up you got to take advantage of.

It wow what an effort for look at where Telus he won't even be in the picture when he hits it trust me he did you want to talk about somebody not giving up it's probably tell us on that point great athleticism and a great ATP there the villier's got to dig deep we'll be.

Right back foreign what do we got parental another one shame third one this week any suspects not yet we'll send these to the lab all right let's take a look what do you think what the jigsaw.

Foreign we are back quarter final action here and Pablo Tellez the 22 seed this Talent is much higher than that folks let me tell you is really pushing the 3C davilia good.

Time out from davilia there gets the ball back okay and the crowd is loving that one-hander it's the first one he has been able to pass him with in a little while he dated that one Dave badley replay this here tell us come flying in ready to go.

Wow yeah so davilia's frustration continues just couldn't get a ball to bounce there he was in good position oh the next couple points could make or break this match oh and that's the first time we've seen the Tui in a while from Telus yeah what a well-struck ball.

Start out oh that's one he would have loved to have another swing at but it's not the way this works Clark no no it's not you get one chance and then you can't catch the ball out of the rough here okay I see all of you yeah I asked about that when I first started playing this Sport and they said sorry Clark it's not going to happen.

Yeah Mulligan pray here brother okay so davilia gets a missed return in the middle of that batch of points and he's within one okay it gives the freebie right back tell us three points from a semi-final berth that one also.

Slides deep the return is so crazy Dave because not only do you have pressure on yourself to hit a good return to put your opponent in a compromised position but you can't hit it out so you're really working with a very small margin Jay's obviously trying to paint that Baseline to put Pablo in a deep spot.

Because Pablo's been really killing it with that forehand slapper on the left hand but again very small margin of error and one or two inches and that Ball's out and here we are Pablo just getting two points there yeah and the wind is swirling around you know davilia is Into The Wind so you.

Know you can't even really blame that one on that situation so nine two points from a semi so twice davilier is called time out and it's worked both times yeah I love that he's using it should we talk about more players should and that return was the one inch inside line that's all.

It takes it's this is a came of inches boy beautiful forehand from telas there and we are at Match Point yeah and that will do it and Pablo tell us impressive takes out devillier in two straight games and is moving on to the semi-final and Clark Benassi is out of the prediction business called for a.

Then we're heading to Old Town Orlando beautiful time of year to be in Orlando first week at December that's played at the USTA National campus appreciate takea the sponsor of the first one in hertz jumping on in a big way and then we have quite a experience that you can be a part of I realize it says bubbly sparkling water.

Team championship and yes we are going to have the best players in the world playing as teams but you can play inside Mandalay Bay you can sign up like any other amateur tournament along the PPA tour so what a great thing to do before Christmas if you are out in that area you can say I played pickleball on the Strip inside.

Mandalay Bay play against people your age your skill level sign up on pickleball tournaments so much fun week after week here on the PPA tour Clark yeah it's awesome I mean what an experience that's going to be as you said um playing in Men playing pickleball in Mandalay Bay you know it's to the point.

Now we talk about the five pickleball League all these different developments happening in pickleball every time I turn around I think it's you know it's something else I'm almost not surprised anymore but at the same time it is so fascinating it's so great for the sport and I think we're just going to continue to see more and more big time.

Developments yeah and today as you mentioned Vibe pickleball is the big announcement the PPA supported league players like Ben Johns will be in the draft Mark Cuban today announced as one of the first owners and it's going to be pickleball with a different vibe man it's gonna be fun we talked about fun today so much more to.

Come there and this is going to be quite a match so we got the top seed Ben John's this is Jonathan Medina Alvarez to serve let's play Pickleball and he is off and running so this is a guy that played Davis Cup for Venezuela okay this is a legit tennis player background yeah Dave I don't care that he hasn't played much pickleball he's played.

Tennis at one of the highest levels you can play at as a human being he's got the mechanics he's got the footwork it's all about can you put it all together here against the world number one nice hands on that Folly from Medina Alvarez just very steady and compact on that just blocking in the open court man.

Yeah his mechanic screams that he was a tennis player doesn't it yeah 40 year old playing a 23 year old here so good look at him he looks like he's in phenomenal shape Dave and again we talk about the threat that a lefty possesses is giving their opponent different looks that they're not used to seeing.

Yeah John's has seen Lefty Lefty here uh played the local favorite jakovich earlier so uh at least he's hit some balls into that pattern right it's a great serve especially with these windy conditions now I think the more precise he can place the ball the more compromise your opponent's gonna be yeah.

You don't see Ben off balance and sort of hacking at a ball like that very often just so didn't quite work out for him yeah stayed in play off the top of the grain monster he's only got a double after yeah getting that much wood on it that's tremendous coverage.

Definitely looks like more of the player that's going to take
