2022 beer City open we are here live at Belknap Park Pro mix doubles day underway and we got a good one here on Championship court for you guys this afternoon to start welcome I am Dominic Catalano I don't have anybody with me at the moment Michelle McMahon will be with me later.

On this afternoon and Rob Cassidy with the put away unfortunately he is in the kitchen and it is a side out here on court right now you have Jackie kawamoto and Rob Cassidy on the near side Meg charity and Deco Barr on the far side.

We're early here in game number one five five one here game number one two out of three second round for both of these teams foreign -two combo there from Rob Cassidy going behind deckle bar charity and Barr you're five seed kalamoto and Cassidy your 13 seed.

Charity trying to reset down that line off the top of the tape High part of the net there side out to kalamoto and Caskey Cassie trying to reach in and pull that backhand kalamoto had an opening there as Charity was sliding over on the stack five five one.

That's a big forehand on the third shot from Deco bar what you'll see a lot out of Deco bars he'll drive that third but then he'll end up dropping that fifth you can handle that big third the big third he likes to come in and drop that fifth right there on cue a little miscommunication there from charity and bar Cassidy capitalizes.

On the pop-up Cassidy reaches in beautifully as you see on that replay maintains his balance stays out of the kitchen but a one point lead here for charity and Bar nice anticipation there from Rob Cassidy coming over on the poach great athleticism to get over that.

Kitchen line forever and nice pressure tank there from kalamoto score evened up here at six game number one of this two out of three second round here ball called out just long there yeah.

And Cassidy and Barr foreign take a one point lead here good hands there from Meg charity as she was back in that transition area Works her way out players though that's a good ball right there by Rob Cassidy bodying up duckle bar going.

Right at the midsection you hear the apology from Cassidy but that's a great shot foreign good setup for kawamoto right there unfortunately not able to get that last one had deckle bar back in the transition area again Cassidy and kalamoto doing a great job of pushing.

Charity and bar off the line Draco pointing to the opposite side knowing he probably should have went to kalamoto's side with that drop instead of Cassidy's foreign upset with herself right there and she had the ball that she wanted to put behind bar but.

Does not get over the top of it enough sales at long foreign .com charity trying to go behind Cassidy right there but again that's twice you've seen her go off the top of that tape right there.

Foreign ER putting that ball at the feet of kalamoto yes charity and bar regain a one-point lead here hey that's great return there from kalamoto nice and deep back to the Baseline.

Putting a lot of pressure there on Deco bar you've seen a couple changes on the last third shots from Deco bar instead of driving he's dropped about the last three or four thirds and all tied here at eight okay here we go.

That's a nice drop there from Meg charity they get another one point advantage then Cassidy going inside out beautiful put away water fountain is yeah oh what a counter from kalamoto here.

She's sitting on this third shot drive from Barr great short compact two-handed backhand right there for the put away in the side out bar comes out on top of that hands battle right there against Rob Cassidy out that ball is not coming back.

Big forehand there from Deco bar and a time out here from charity and bar the offensive timeout again seeing this so much more now in pickleball that offensive timeout I like it here is he seems to be inching their way up no one getting much more than a two-point lead here and charity and bar get the side.

Out take the time out want to regroup here reset and try and get a game point on their paddle here in game number one see deckle bar grabbing some shade getting out of the sun it is warm out here this weekend we're looking at around 90 degrees today high humidity.

Not really any chance for rain but we thought that yesterday too and we got a little bit later in the evening that pushed our men's Pro singles gold medal match inside and in case you didn't see Andrea Coop's live stream last night.

It was a 14-12 12 10. James ignatowich victory over Zane navratil in that gold medal match and in true 585 Rochester New York I don't know what you're talking about fashion Rob Cassidy doubles up on the timeout.

Right after the Deco bar timeout and so they will double up and get another time out here is Jekyll just decided to join me in the booth and get some shade right now so but again 9-8 lead here for charity and Barr they use the offensive timeout again we've talked about that recently.

Using that to their advantage pickleball last few years you've seen it used a lot more on the offensive side of the ball rather than just a defensive stopper where you're trying to slow your opponent down bar and charity using it on the offensive side trying to regroup here get that game point on their paddle.

But I do like kamoto and Cassidy then take another time out to slow them down even more so we'll see what happens backing play here deckle bark serve just a little long on that return there from Rob Cassidy and it will be a game point here for charity and Barr foreign.

Cassidy right there with the hands that's so tough that ball off the tape there and you're expecting it so fast and all of a sudden it slows up good adjustment from Cassidy that's another good put away there from Cassidy they fight off two game points 10-1 let's see if they can answer here Rob visibly upset with himself over that.

nine times out cast me from his knees and gets there keeps him in the point all tied up here now at 10. great fight from kalamoto and Cassidy this paddle right there just goes by but they do even the score up and we are all.

Knotted at a 10. nice great pressure there from kalamoto good return there from kalamoto on the big duckle bar serve and they keep charity and bar at 10. water step in there from Rob Cassidy using that Lefty forehand in the middle watch this great read.

High ball from Barr Cassidy splits charity and Bart on The Middle pulling here for Cassidy and kalamoto yeah and the lob attempt from Barr kind of shocking to me right there but Cassidy all over this for the put away and a 12-10 game one victory for kalamoto and Cassidy over charity and Bar.

Number two kawamoto and Cassidy taking game on over charity in bar 12-10 game two just getting underway Meg charity to serve all right just wide thank you big put away there from Rob Cassidy.

All right defense there from kalamoto as Cassidy goes for the Ernie he ends up off court for a shot shot and a half works his way back in but kamoto keeps him in that point good lob there from Deco bar up over kawamoto all right hands from Deco bar as he gets.

Low and in the middle right they're able to put that ball away oh nice Ernie there on the backhand side from Meg charity okay three one two that's a great pressure dink there from.

Rob Cassidy he's picking up their Deco bars in the middle right there and so what he does is pull that dink Cross Court really hard gets Deco bar out of position wow what hands there from Rob Cassidy on the forehand side just when you think he got a hole behind him lightning quick.

Hands to stop that foreign momentum and movement there from Cassidy and we're all tied here at three in game number two deckle bar causes that shot right there because he's sitting in the middle creating an issue an angle for Cassidy.

oh great defense though from kalamoto and Cassidy just to stay in that point but just a little too much deckle bar there in the middle Jackal Barr with the two-hander trying to go down the line right there.

A little Rob Cassidy joking around with Deco bar right there with the big yeah his kalamoto clipped the tape and the ball died not allowing decobar to get that Ernie oh yeah Rob Cassidy doing everything he can right there he was full extension on pretty much every one of those shots.

Tough to stay in right there and a two-point lead here for charity and Bar trying to force a third game here and time out here from Rob Cassidy and Jackie kalamoto down by three here in game two Komodo and Cassidy take game one 12 10. charity and Barr trying to force a third.

Game here up 6-3 but we'll see what happens after this time out as Charity and Barr trying to force a third game here again welcome to Grand Rapids Michigan we're here at the 2022 beer City open mixed Pro doubles day here at belnet Park we are just underway.

This is a second round matchup kamodo and Cassidy took out De la Rosa and De la Rosa five and four in round one charity and Barr had a three-game barn burner against Federico statsrude and Sydney Sunday 10 12 11 4 13-11 foreign so they are well tested early on were charity and bar a new.

Partnership as well as Regina Franco Goldberg was supposed to be playing with Deco bar make charity filling in and filling in nicely good finish there out of the timeout from Rob Cassidy a little wide there off the paddle of Deco bar great time out great side out for tomodo.

And Cassidy see if they can capitalize left hand from decal wow what coverage from all four of these players throughout that point one of Cassidy here flying past right into your living room having to get back wow good talk and communication from Rob Cassidy talking to his partner Jackie.

Calamoto telling her to switch on that last ball and they are now within one here five six hey there that's it oh deckle ready for that speed up from kalamoto oh and Deco bar over hits that backhand great setup though good footwork from.

Bar sliding across that kitchen line but just can't get over the top of that put that away our decal bar just making his presence felt right there throughout that point in the middle one again the Timeout on the offensive side here from charity and Bar.

Our score is even up here at six charity and Barr had a 6-3 lead timeout from charity or from excuse me kalamoto and Cassidy they even it up at six six and now the Timeout on the offensive side here from Meg charity and deckle bar trying to force a third game here as I said earlier charity and Bart did play a three-gamer in the first round.

And won 13-11 in the third to earn the rights play in this second round matchup looking to force another third game here on Championship Court as players come back in 15 seconds left on this timeout players trying to find shade anywhere they can around here I got Travis ruttenmeyer hiding in my booth right now trying to get out of.

That sun I know they just had a battle out there I think they were playing uh Austin Gridley and Susanna Barr or Rhett fire and Wrecker took out Paris Todd and Thomas Wilson in the first round a little overhit there from Kyle Moto and charity and Barr regain the one.

Point lead I like the setup though from charity she's sitting on that sideline one foot out she's got to get on top of that two-handed backhand that's a clean winner yeah it's just you're not seeing Deco bar drive that third as much as he.

Typically does he loves to drive the third drop the fifth he's looking to drop the third a little more this matchup where he had some success in game one driving the third and dropping the fifth he's gone away from it a little bit here six seven two oh Jackal bar ducking underneath that.

Cassidy forehand no damage done side out two charity and Barr ack yeah I think that's one of the reasons why he's gone away from it because cowamoto has burned him a couple times she's been the one that's handled the drive a little more than Cassidy.

So if I'm bar gonna drive that third I'm looking to go more at Cassidy than kalamoto decide out there though from kalamoto and Cassidy no damage done on that side as well so trying to even this up here at seven gray hands there from duckleball with the kitchen line making his presence.

Felt in the middle again forehand backhand put away as we continue to trade side outs here at 7-6 big serve from Deco bar two-point lead here now for charity and Barr trying to force a third game here foreign.

All over it with a little wrist flick backhand put away two points away from forcing a third game here server just a little overhit there from decobar he is all over that from the speed up of Cassidy he's almost baiting him is Deco Barna.

Trying to go down the line Cassie's not biting right now a little too much there off the edge of the paddle it's your call great so it is a point here for kamodo and.

Cassidy foreign good recovery there from charity get the one back but can't get that second and it is all tied up here at nine the controversy on that last point was Deco thought it was on the line on the serve off the tape from Cassidy referee saw it differently.

Overruled it called it in and it was a point which made it eight nine Cassidy still serving now nine nine here in game number two again thank you guys for joining us we are here in Grand Rapids Michigan Belmont Park at the 2022 beer City open mixed Pro doubles all day today tomorrow.

We have men's and women's Pro doubles yesterday concluded our single side of things coming out on top James ignotowicz in a barn burner indoors after it rained out here on us they moved that match indoors and ignotowicz coming out on top over Zane navratil in two games claiming the gold medal.

But all about the mixed doubles today as kalamoto and Cassidy trying to end this in two we'll see if charity and Barr have anything to say about that here need a side out to get back in this good protection right there from Deco bar as Meg charity getting all the way across.

Court on the stack and nice put away there from Deco bar good timeout as they hold two services and try and answer themselves here a little short on that backhand drop there from Deco bar have to have my third over here have to have it you're gonna make a mistake make.

A mistake High here you cannot be short at 99 in game two when you need this second game and right on cue decal is super high on those but at least they're over they fight to get back into that charity it's a perfect drop and they are one point away from forcing a third game here.

Foreign Rob Cassidy 11-9 we will go to a third game here on Championship Court before that we're going to take a quick commercial break and we'll be right back here on Championship Court in Grand Rapids Michigan at the 2022 beer City open.

Is Cassidy tries to double up right at him here there's the first attempt bar ready for the next quick side out on charity now with her own Ernie on the backhand side feeding off Deco bar beautiful one-handed Ernie right there.

And bar and charity on the board first next up here on Championship Court Andrea Coop Zane navratil taking on Michelle Esquivel and Kyle Yates so another good one coming up right after this third game here what man nice job there from Deco bar going backside on Rob Cassidy for the winner.

wow too good there from Deco Paris he caught Rob Cassidy just a little over committed here but Cassidy has to come over and cover after he gets that ball off the tape in the middle short on that third nice lob there from.

Deco bar up and over the top of Rob Cassidy two zero one nice job jackets chicken a nice jump there from Deco bar over the kitchen and sideline here getting this ball from a low position actually and.

Able to get on top of that the winner down the middle 3-0 lead in game two or game three excuse me for charity and Bar and kalamoto trying to go inside out forehand goes a little wide charity and Barr extend their lead.

Players will switch ends at six yeah good counter there from kalamoto Cassidy recovers nicely just can't get on top of that enough a little wide on that serve from kalamoto Cassidy and come over cannot get on the.

Board and Along on that return free point there for charity and Barr one point away from an end change here time out here from kalamoto and Cassidy trying to slow this momentum down of Charity and Bar but again they will get another free time out on an end change whichever team.

Reaches six first charity and Bar in command here early in this third game winner will move on to the semifinal or excuse me quarterfinals or they will face the winner of Anna bright James ignatowicz who are taking on Georgia Johnson and Dylan Frazier as we speak that will be one of our four.

Quarterfinals another quarterfinal Susanna Barr and Austin Gridley took out Rachel Riker and Travis rettenmeier jarjim and J.W Johnson took out kawamoto and Merchant and ramenzi and Das who will face oshiro in Long in another quarterfinal and then we have the other quarterfinal for you escobel Yates coop at navratil coming up.

Next here on Championship Court foreign ER on his toes moving forward there they have a commanding 6-0 lead here in game number three players will switch ends here and we'll see if the end change makes any difference here for kalamoto and Cassidy.

As they have to get some work done here down by six and game number three try and move on to the quarterfinals and using this free timeout is Cassidy as he was sitting down relaxing taking his time to get back on side now he'll continue to use that full timeout it's deckle bar and Meg charity.

Are on the service line ready to go make charity to serve that's good time out right there use of the end change timeout I need one more hold here get that side out do cow Moto and Cassidy they serve good return though from kalmoto pushing bar back behind.

The Baseline I think Cassidy wanted to let that ball go couldn't get his paddle down quickly enough and it's an 8-0 lead here for charity and Bar that's great Cross Court there from Jackie calmoto again catching deckle bar leaning in that middle you can hit a.

Dink with a purpose Cross Court there possibility you can catch big deckle bar in the middle and Cassidy on the board here but definitely still have some work to do it's down by seven that's great backhand punch there from Rob Cassidy.

And a little bit of life here from Cassidy and kalamoto two and one second server 282 so Cassidy.

So a little confusion Cassidy called that out but Kyle Moto changed it and said no that was in she was right over the top of it so side out but kalamoto Cassidy do get on the board here thank you nice hands there from kamoto bar with a missed opportunity though.

We'll see if Cassidy and Como can hold here get a side out and make a game of this third game and good stuff in there from Cassidy and they do hold again one I don't mind the idea there from Cassidy trying to go backside on Deco bar double up there.

Wow deckle bar way to stay balanced here again with the double Ernie side out for charity and bar the unforced error on the return to serve from Cassidy will put charity and bar within two here of taking this second round matchup and nice little backhand punch there.

From Cassidy at about oh 50 60 forces Deco bar to pop that up and Cassidy gets the forehand put away big hole here want to avoid a match point on the paddle of Deco bar good return from Cassidy and they do get the side out but again still have work to do down by seven foreign.

Cassidy staying in that point that's just too easy for deckle bar kalamoto floats that third are able to put that backhand away again Barr with the successful LOB that's three or four he's had much success with this match and it is another offensive timeout here on the side of Charity and.

Barr as they're up 9-3 let's see and we'll look to serve out this match out of this timeout and thank you guys for joining us we'll be here the remainder of the day here on YouTube till five o'clock we'll switch over to ESPN Plus for all of our metal matches later on.

This afternoon and into the evening before that we have some great quarters and semifinal matchups here on Championship Court this second round matchup brought to you by Consumer Cellular here in Grand Rapids Michigan at the 2022 beer City open will be deckle bar to serve here 9-3.

On first server there's that big third shot drive from Deco bar causing issues in the middle and it is a match point here for charity and Bar and nice counter on the fourth from Rob Cassidy right there causing the pop-up and put.

Away backside for Jackie kalamoto as they hold off two match points but kamoto and Cassidy have to get on the board here and Cassidy claiming that ball hit bars forehand but bar saying hit him in the hand Cassie in the middle of Point.

Apologizing good adjustment there off the tape from Deco bar staying nice and calm letting that ball pop up not panic put that ball away it'll be Match Point number three for charity and Bar and a little wide there from Jackie kalamoto and that'll do it as Charity.

And bar dropped game one 12-10 but come back win a barn burner 11-9 in game two and then handily in game three 11-3 kalamoto and Cassidy are not done they'll drop into the consolation side of things charity and Barr will move on to the quarterfinals we'll take a quick commercial break when we come back I'll talk with Meg charity and Deco Barr.

That close first game it was close and then Deco this is the first time you and Mega have played together in what four years you guys were telling me that your guy's first ever tournament for both of you you played together it was the Atlanta open four years ago it seems like you guys.

Are picking up right where you left off you got two victories so far how is that working for you guys yeah last time it was both of our first tournament ever we didn't do too well uh so we're glad we're uh off to a good start here looking forward to the next one and then Meg playing with Deco very big he creates a lot of Havoc for opponents how.

Is it playing next to him it shortens the court for you a little bit what's it like playing next to Deco like that yeah because I'm told too so I just gotta we had to sort of figure out how like space um but yeah it's amazing he covers a lot of the chords so I can really like focus on you know certain sections of the chord really well and decals got almost.

The whole Court covered and then Deco seemed like a little bit in game two you went away from your third shot drive you like to drive that third drop that fifth what changed that and then you went back to it at the end in game three and it was very successful for you yeah they were handling the drives very well uh got a little bit more pop-ups with the.

With the drops a little a little change up at the end the drive was working again you gotta gotta change things up a little bit sometimes all right you guys are moving on to the quarterfinals we have a quarterfinal matchup for you coming up next Andrea Coop Zane navratil taking on Michelle Esquivel and Kyle Yates don't go anywhere you don't want.

downtown Grand Rapids Michigan the site of the 2022 beer City open we are here at beautiful rejuvenated redone found that park on the brand new Championship Court Dominic Catalano alongside me I have a special guest for the next hour before she's got to go to work she's got.

Meetings and stuff I have Corinne Carr the professor with me how are you Corrine I'm great how are you Don I'm great thank you for joining me for getting this you gotta we got a good match here yeah so definitely and uh you know you're on court one you just skipped right over Court two left Adam in the dust he gets caught two and.

You get court number one one zero two guys all right I'm back all right corrine's back she was gone for a second we had a little microphone interruption but we're all good foreign.

You skipped over Court too you don't need to do chord two you come straight to Championship Court you leave Adam in the dust over I know and what can you say you got the better of the two that's right there we go I like hearing right there Kyle very active early here in this match so far yeah he's playing.

Aggressive which I think is a good strategy against Andre and Zane plain aggressive right there on cue Korean you said it plain aggressive that's exactly what Yates and Esquivel are doing yes and it also plays into Michelle's strength she loves the fast game she's very good at it so I think setting her up for that is.

Great don't miss it there from escobel but got something she's looking for she can go backside like that perfectly they've been nice but just a little low maybe to do that with right there with the put away there yeah yeah and a little bit of luck there with the net.

That's great ball down the middle there from Kyle Yates what's he looking for right there Korean and why are they having so much success right now speeding the ball up uh well I will say I think that shot caught him a little by surprise it's it's not a shot I think we'll get away with again or if he does it'll be maybe.

One more time um so it's a it's a good one to do throw in there see if it works ask about she tried to sell that so much soon as it was off for a paddle I think she knew it was out but she was like yes come on Yo sometimes at work you're right oh great hands there from Coop and never.

Till Esquibel did get that inside out there but it looked like Naruto was waiting on that I think she's gone behind them a couple times now serve causing Havoc again Corrine have you have you played around with the spin serve at all a little bit I have not you.

Have not I probably should you're seeing more and more players do it what's the advantage of it uh well it forces you to really be on your toes and be ready to move to where the ball is and uh it's just an extra variable that you got to deal with it's difficult oh.

So close there off the paddle of Kyle Yates what a good speed up there from Andrew Coop almost looks like Cooper navrat till now are countering a little more not playing as much defense but turning that into offense they are I think they've gotten a little bit more comfortable with the pace of the match oh wow never till using his athleticism.

And speed here get both of these balls it must have all just goes a little bit too much right there but a 6-2 lead here for Coop and naversals they've settled in nicely is that the difference there Corrine is that they've just settled in to the pace of escovale's yeah I I think that's what happened.

Um they definitely Kyle and Michelle came out firing away and uh Andrea and Zane were a little bit on their heels but they've certainly adjusted and are firing back now and as an instructor and you teach you just came you guys that were in Ohio you and Adam were teaching with Simone and Chad um when you're instructing your students.

On that to have some team that comes out really powerful like that what are you trying to tell them to do to counter that uh well it depends if the attacks are coming to the same places pretty consistently then you can load up and fire back if you're not really sure what that attack's gonna go then maybe just.

You know know that the attack is coming settle in and get prepared to walk yeah and it's exactly what it seems like navratil and Coop have done is they've settled in and handled that pace yeah I'll ask about a good sign that's a good adjustment right there too because navratil Clips the tape here.

So as he goes for this Ernie he Clips a tape that's not an easy ball it's not she made it look easy he eats his ear telling him to go here he eats finally with the forehand put away one oh.

Wow what a point there from all four players but again Yates being very active Karen he is very and he's being aggressive but I I think it's the play I think it's what they need to do yeah okay right because you can see a team going okay well we came out hot and wanted to go fast they answered went up by four.

We're gonna change things and they haven't they're still gonna go hard here no uh I think they're playing into their strength and it's it's the game that they're playing the ball Kyle's not going to miss very often right there he loves being on his toes there leaning forward getting that backhand.

I actually like this matchup with Michelle in front of Andrea you beat me to it Karen I see I've all and I say it all the time about Michelle I love Michelle yeah I do too she has so many options with the backhand and it just showed right there ah a.

Especially two with Kyle Yates on the right Kyle in men's doubles is a I didn't say a right side specialist but he plays the right so much in men's doubles and he's comfortable on that side especially with his backhand in the middle right and he's comfortable with his backing in the middle uh Michelle moves.

Well so she can cover those middle balls too with her forehand so I like the match-up yeah because there's only a few handful of guys who are who say really strong on the right Kyle Adam uh Colin Johns you know just to name a couple that are used to playing that side and that's a nice ball in the middle she sold it and hit.

It yep so she said yes early but this one does drop in caused a little confusion in the middle from navratil and coop ER speed up on the two-hander from Kyle Yates there yeah and I think it was a little slower than what Andrea expected and sometimes.

There's an off-paced shot to really successful Kyle upset with himself he missed that spotty I think he thought he had Coop on the stack where she was coming across but I think tried to be just a little too perfect with it on the line Michelle staying she wants to stay here so this will put them face up.

I just I think they have to on scene serve it's just too much to try to I agree and what do you mean by that though I agree with you but explain to everyone listening what do you mean by that uh so it's so hard I mean with saying sir if you're really just trying to return it get it in.

Um when you're trying when you're stacking you don't just want to hit your return in you're trying to hit something deep so that you can get in position right and it's just so hard with his serve right trying to worry about the stack and keep it in right I want a foot fault on a push-off there.

From navratil let's see what we got oh yeah all over that it happens a lot it does it really happens more often than we think it does I think about it now sometimes when I'm not positive I'll slide my foot just to be sure that's nice jump there by Kyle Yates good read on Coop going flat here.

Down the line helps being young and athletic definitely does almost saved her foreign wow what a job by Cal Yates you watch him hold this ball almost on his paddle he makes maveritzel commit first and then he goes behind him yeah yeah.

Beautiful shot he made it look so easy too that is a very difficult shot Yates back within one they are they've made a run that's got a little inside out there tied up at seven this is a 5-1 run by Esquivel and Yates they were down 6-2.

That's a very rare third shot drop Miss from Kyle Yates seven seven one nice there's Coupe there that went inside out on Yates kind of shocked him a little bit correct it did yeah he was a little cough guard but good shot by Coop I think you've got to go behind the guy occasionally.

Yeah Kyle's trying to get so big in the middle right now and cause havoc in there that just keeps him honest now now he's thinking that Coop may do that again all right he's upset with himself it's a tough ball to pull back when he's fully extended like that it's so hard to bring that ball back over with you.

It is and I think he thought Michelle was more out of position than she was she really could have gotten that ball fairly easily but he couldn't tell foreign you can get a glimpse of it here.

Love it Michelle feeding off of that when she is positive and and with those commands and everything like that that's when she's a better player absolutely she loves getting fired up good off of anything good or bad she just needs the energy.

Yeah you're exactly right when she's playing well she's feeding off that positive energy she's in points that's when she's at her best nine seven one foreign coupe right there very good and Kyle Kyle how to just put a little too much on that shot yep.

But great point ten seven one good return pressure return there from Escalade I'll put something on that oh basketball trying to sell it again the ball does sail long and game one will go to your two seed Andrew Coop and Zane navato 11-7 we'll take a quick commercial break when we come back game.

Foreign Championship Court Andrea coops ain't never till Michelle Esquivel and Kyle Yates game one going to Coop and navratil you can see the crowd starting to file in is either this good match or Corinne Carr joining me in the booth I don't know it could be either one I think it's.

A good match it could be that too ain't too underway basketball to serve it just misses that forehand on the line zero zero one and I put away there from Yates again good hands from Esquivel off the tape yeah she's she's playing well zero zero two and I like that ball better from Kyle it.

Almost looks like he wanted to drop it in again I like him if he can keep playing back he can pretty much get anything yeah he's too quick hands there from navratil y creates in full Attack Mode still zero zero two drop was a little high yeah I just died that one Dave Weimar Style.

Good serve there from yeah the surf's tough I will say at least on this court they have room to stand back and really right do as much as they can to return it right you see it a little more yeah yeah the ball there from ascable nice and deep ask about sitting on it right there.

She's ready for that speed up very much she saw it coming just a little even when you see it sometimes if it's low to the backhand it's hard to keep it in Kyle not happy about something maybe he wasn't in a ready position on the return When I'm ready.

That's a good defense there from Coop she's handcuffed twice in good resets yeah she doesn't miss very much no she doesn't sometimes she looks to be in an awkward position but it still seems to work she does I think she somewhat frequently looks.

Like she's in an awkward position but it doesn't matter she's she hardly ever misses yeah that's a grown-up drive right there Corinne that is with a purpose about an inch over the net it's hard to block that is.

Oh wow a little confusion there from never telling coop I think the shot I call that accidental lob right it caught him a little off guard and yeah Zayn just wasn't in position I think to move back real quickly server yeah I like the first drive right right exactly but again now it's like okay you.

Drive one maybe drive two maybe drop the next right and she knows she knew what she did yeah because as soon as she hit that last one she's like my bad yeah but it's so hard you're in that point right to get out of that mentality and switch it is.

It's it's so hard once you drive the first to just say okay I'm gonna drop the next one good hands by Zayn I could never till answer quickly after they went up 3-0 azkabel and Yates answer and get two but on the side out Cooper never told with a quick point trying to extend their lead.

Thank you right there that's what you want to do if you're expecting that drive right Korean you want to counter that yeah something on it yes definitely if you if you have time definitely counter back try to get that Ball Deep ER what a setup right a good point.

Construction right there current very nice she pulled Andrea out wide and Zayn had too much to cover there in the middle and Michelle took advantage of it that's the X's and O's right there of pickleball and setting a good point up and Esquivel did it perfectly there I like Kyle he's right in esquibel's ear.

After she got frustrated going it's okay it's okay and that's it's the type of play you don't want Michelle to get frustrated when she gets frustrated she's not as as when she's fired up right there's two there's two different ways should I get frustrated or she can get fired up right and Kyle does a good job of keeping her.

On that positive level right you weren't fired up Michelle yes exactly unofficial timeout with towels and drinks and it's every bit of 90 degrees out here 100 humidity I think all the referees around are giving that and giving a little more leeway with that which is nice it should it's important I think they should for.

Sure Michelle on that left side we like her there I think it's great I think she's not quite as comfortable dinking up the line she'd rather go across Court which is probably some of the hesitation there but I love her attacking straight ahead it's a little star down from Kyle Yates after the overhead.

Get a glimpse of that here 4-1 he liked that shot wow what a counter from coop yeah she had several there I think the the last attack was a little bit ambitious cross-court just because Andrea's gonna sit backhand so hard there but great point and what about from that position too.

That ball is pretty low for us a little bit faster and she's pretty far out wide too that's a good get there from Esquivel just to get that ball back up and over yeah and I like the shot selection uh-huh foreign just nothing by her I don't care how.

Hard you hit it no she's tough to play because she just doesn't miss much and she's got great hands basketball using it I mean if you can't beat her straight up right because she's gonna get everything back so you got to use a little bit of.

The tape yeah yeah might as well right absolutely if you get help from the nuts take it yeah foreign big side out foreign good foot or so right there from navratil I mean this that right there could.

Almost be just a little frustration because he's getting two overheads they both come back right now you're trying to do just a little too much and you sail it out it happens all the time I I think like playing the gods of motos you get so annoyed with everything that's coming back that at some point you just try to go for too much yep.

Yeah okay no I mean look at that right there Andrew's getting everything back the last one she gets back to look like she's off balance gonna fall but she gets it back and drops it perfectly right you use a great example of the kalamotos the brick walls oh they are and they.

Take everything back they're so frustrating to play hold up ball sails just a little long here Esquivel trying to use the tape again players talking about the video challenge that we are implementing this weekend for all the metal matches they're nine cameras up here on.

Championship Court I think it's good might as well yeah exactly right I mean the money's getting bigger in this game right we got to be honest it is and and sometimes it is hard to see the the ball perfectly or you know whipping our head around when we're at the kitchen the ball's moving.

Fast so the stakes are bound to happen yep no one out here is trying to make the wrong call everyone's trying to make the right call do the right thing but I think the video challenges are going to be helpful for the future of pickleball yes and it can take some pressure off the.

Players too because I know I worry if I I you know believe I solved the ball one way or the other and maybe my opponents think they saw it differently it's just nice to have confirmation basketball using that again yeah I mean when all else fails you have to you have to but I do think the more you rip balls the way she does the more liquids Are.

Gonna Get Right thank you they're in that hands battle there much needed side out there for escobel and Yates as they were up 5-4 now they're down six five obviously need this second game force a third one that's just that's a veteran move.

Great recognition from Cal Yates he knows navratil's coming over on the stack any and he hit a great deep serve which set it up foreign now to start that one I didn't I would have rather had askable drive to the opposite side she drove right at Mavericks who's already up right I agree.

On the change or on the stack the only time to go at Zane would be if he's leaning middle trying to protect Andrea a little bit right right up Jason Esquivel do tie it up we're all square here at six and game number two quarterfinal match up here winner gets Maggie romenzi and Andre de esku who.

Took out Bobby oshiro and Brendan long 12 10 11 3. and then the other three quarterfinal matches are all happening right now jarjim and Johnson versus Baron Gridley and charity in bar and Brighton ignatowicz we have that one next seen him do that once or twice in game one as well yes and it's another good.

Pattern pulled Andrea out wide Zane felt like he had to cover middle and Kyle went behind him what almost putting Andrew coop in the kalamoto category right now yeah I almost am she's becoming that person if she already isn't just.

If she isn't she's very close yeah everything is up and over wow that's full on attack at the body there from Esquivel but that's the right shot it was yes I've seen these people walk past us Karina with these buckets of lemonade I'm wondering where they come from.

There's a trough of lemonade somewhere that we are not privy to we'll find it foreign battle there by all four players think about just going a little too hot there to the sideline it's a big hold there from Coop and mavericksville not giving up any points there now trying to add to their lead.

Foreign always works if he gets that clean I think Naruto gets that back over I don't think so that is a beautiful lock from Kyle Yates very nice I don't think anyone saw that coming no and he had some topspin on it too so it.

Kicked away from Coop as it landed too that's a good spot right there and I think he took something off that too he hit it to a good spot he did he put it at her feet which I think you need to do because when she can get her paddle on it comfortably she's just too consistent yeah wow what point construction from Mexico very nice she went inside out on.

The first one and then went cross court and then went inside out again she's great at creating the angles and moving her opponents around a lot just like that it is a 8-7 lead for Esquivel and Yates now they flip the script take the one point lead on Coop and navratil forcing the time out if you're in the corner of Coupe and never.

Till what are you telling them right now Karen I think they just I think they've gotten a little bit unlucky a few times I mean all they need to do Andrew's extremely consistent they need to get in the dink battle with Michelle and Kyle try to give them something that they can't comfortably attack and I think that.

They'll win with if they're able to do that yep and we got a bracket for you here show you where we're at you're seeing this match going on as we have right here azkabel and Yates taking on your two seed Coupe and navratil your one seed Simone jargime and JW Johnson we're just battling on a court directly across from us against Susanna Barr and.

Austin Gridley I think they are still playing actually and then Maggie Romancing Andre did ask who have moved on as your 15 seed that's a very very strong 15-seater it's very strong very deceiving it is because Maggie and Andre don't play as many tournaments so they're really seated a little over the nation or worse than they should be yes.

Foreign much needed thank you I mean it's just nothing that Kyle could do and Kyle was hitting some great balls yeah.

He did everything he's supposed to do I'll just kept coming back right yeah that's good counter there from Cali Yates he's ready for that ball from coop that's just such good hands right there and again that's ready position oh it is oh wow but I talk about that ready position if he has his pedal down.

There's pedal by his side he doesn't get that block right you're right yeah and and Andrea went where she should go so looking the ball was a little high Andrea is probably it wasn't high enough to maybe go middle but um to go at Kyle was definitely the place and Kyle was ready for it but yes having the paddle up was key.

Foreign oh big hold from Coop and navratil keep it at 8-8 here it's a little low to attack right there it was I know it's just trying to make something happen right there but maybe one or two let's wait for another opportunity I think maybe thinking to.

Zayn up the line uh pull him away from the middle and open up uh open up that shot a little bit more would have been a better place has to hit it off the court to get it away from Esquivel but it will be a Match Point here when we return from this time out with Coop and never till.

Up 10-8 here in game number two Corinne keeps looking at the clock she's got one of those things called the job that she's got to take care of here at two o'clock we do appreciate her coming in I know she doesn't want to leave I don't this is exciting it's a good match she's got five minutes we'll see what she needs.

But if all of a sudden you guys are just stuck with me at the end of this I apologize me too we come back in though Coop and navratil will have a match point on their paddle and it is on the paddle of who they'd want Zane navratil with his big serve.

Yeah it's tough you gotta deal with this on a match point that ain't one you should never tell screaming you're there you're there and Coop just literally goes I'm not and I'll have one more opportunity here match point 10-8.

Thank you on 10-8 right there Cooper neverson will end it and take this match 11-7 11-8 over Michelle Esquivel and Cal Yates Corrine thank you so much for joining us for this match I know you got to get out of here so go ahead we're gonna take a quick commercial break when we come back I will have Andrea Coop and Zane.

They wanted to play fast and hard and you guys had to make an adjustment right away but you did it very well was it something you were expecting out of them I don't know if we were expecting them to play so fast but it worked for them they were playing well and they were winning a lot of the hands battles so it wasn't a bad strategy from them it was.

Just you know a lot of times when a team starts to play like that you feel like you're on your back foot or something a little bit so I I told Andrea that you know we have to still play our game and try and um try and look for our opportunities when we do have them and we gotta we got just enough to get it done I suppose.

All right and Andrea you are one of the best defensive players in the game current and I were on the call that match Kern was talking about how you're almost as annoying as the kalamoto's out there playing and getting every single ball back but a big difference that I see with you is you counter so well is something you're looking for in that.

Match especially as they're speeding the ball up oh for sure yeah I mean I'm trying to be a little bit more offensive and but I do like it when people hit a hard at me and then moving forward you get a match up with your sister playing in the next round against Maggie and Andre what are you looking for in that match.

Like I gotta congratulate her because they must have had some great wins and they must be playing great so I'm sure it's going to be a good match Andre's like six foot twelve so we'll be looking for him to be all over the court and Maggie's pretty solid over on that right with her forehand roll all right well I'll let you guys get some rest before.

Site of the 2022 beer City open part of the USA pickleball national championship series another good matchup here in a quarterfinal Meg charity and Deco bar are taking on Anna bright and James mcnatta witch Dominic Catalano alongside me Corinne she had to go to work so we get second tier of commentators the CEO of the APV.

Tour Ken Herman is joining me Ken I just I joke I kid I kid with you buddy uh Dom you and I haven't been in the mic since Flushing Meadows nice to see you I know I know it's nice to see you it's been a long time you know it seems like it was just yesterday it does Flushing Meadows is a beautiful tournament absolutely love that cannot wait to get back there.

Uh but we got a good match up here Ken what are you looking for in this match up here between these two teams I'm looking at first off to see how James is going to be recovering he won our singles title late last night so I think early indication is to see how his body is held up we definitely got some human conditions out here today in Grand.

Rapids game one time in zero zero two foreign are a new partnership for this tournament it'll be curious to see how they're handling balls down the middle how they're working together as a partner.

Decal has a strong presence on the court ignotowich playing like a veteran right now making himself very big in the middle taking about 65 70 percent of the Court James has been playing quite a lot this year on app it's got a lot of good results and he's also been doing more work with his doubles and his his mixed.

Doubles games I know he won the as we talked about earlier how he won the title last night for singles with a good win over Zayn in the final that's gonna be the Difference Maker in this match is Charity versus bright Cross Court with those four hands and seeing what those gentlemen can do in the middle by stepping in maybe.

Poaching one of those balls off from Deco bar right there Ken deco's been off we haven't seen Deco on the app took a couple months off it's nice to have Deco back it'd be good to see how razor sharp these players are as we head into the summer season for some odd reason ignatovich did not see Meg charity go here but what it was.

Was she hit a dink to his the back side of his left foot he put his head down and was not looking up Charity snuck in there with the backhanded Ernie Wait Another Minute okay so charity what happened she did not hit that ball if she hits that ball and continues past the plane of the net.

She's fine but she did not hit that and continued past the plane of the net so it is a fault great call right there did get a clean winner charity just couldn't stop her momentum they have a crack in the ball early I have no doubt between these players why there's a crack in the ball these two gentlemen hit the ball very.

Hard and Anna bright is no slouch and when Meg charity is probably the fourth hardest hardest hitter on the court that's saying something yep she also has a very nice forehand I'm always a big fan of how fit all four these players are out here they take their Fitness off Court very seriously Megan and Megan's incredibly fit as as.

Is Anna forced air there from Meg charity but they do gain the lead 3-2 here early in game number one of this two out of three oh no tackle boy oh catch what part of his body caught uh yeah his left toe got the kitchen line great call again.

Deco switch hit on the post wow what a defend there from Anna brightest decal bar goes around the post here she was there she saw it coming down she was in a perfect position for it too one foot just out so she's not too far out so she's gonna play a ball that's.

Gonna be in great position there for man of right four three two lead back on the side of Anna bright and James ignatowich and a nice drive down the line there from Anna Bright Now both Anna and James are strong singles players you can see how cleanly they hit the ball from the backcourt of that.

Balls in their Strike Zone I think they're going to take a rip on that third shot though one hands there though from ignatowicz to stay in that point but just a little too much deckle bar Deco Bart holding onto that line pushing James the Tad off that line that last Exchange.

That is veteran recognition from Deco bar catching ignatowich on the switch on the stack and he's late getting there knackle Just Hits to the vacated area he'll take it all day Ken Dom Deco has really worked a line has serve it's not a lot of spin but there's so much depth and it's such a heavy ball.

It's really hard to get in when you're returning up against Deco serve yeah he just he just gets into it he uses his body weight right he gets up on his toe every bit of 6'4 when he's hitting it he's almost hitting down on it oh boy stop.

Wow that point was over with three times I think Anna kept saying James where are you where are you get off that Baseline unbelievable and just a little wrist flick there from ignata which it's the winner of all those huge overheads and big forehands and two-handed backhands it's a wrist flick for the winner uh Legacy.

But isn't this exciting a year ago James and Anna were not even on the tour and here we've got new faces coming into the game with two amazing players on the other side of the net trying to punch a ticket into the semifinals there's all those ground strokes we talked about very clean off the ground.

Big forehand there from ignotowicz we saw it a lot yesterday in singles had a little issue cramping later in the day seems to be past that right now so a little controversy about the call Anna was very positive it was in Meg called it out what referee could not overrule it.

Call stands we're trying to make something happen there Ken tough ball that was a tough ball very low trying to do it look at the replay has it out it is the Kyle solenko replay camera system oh wow.

It hits ignatowich the ball was moving three and a half miles an hour off the tape and catch and catches him in the chest could not get out of the way six six two left hand again from decal again it's just a little bit of James is backing off as much as he's improving his mixed doubles decal does not back.

Off that line even if a freight train's come in no James is still a couple of inches backing off that line and that's just what allows that ball to get popped up seven six two oh my God again decal goes left hand right there it's tough right there not sure if that.

Ball is going to go out but hey I'm out here from Brighton ignata which in Ken you got some good news for us don't you I want you to tell us about it during this time out Texas has a Golden Ticket what's going on we're going to Houston we are going to Houston the app tour October 19th through the 23rd that was originally a tier two event on the app.

Tour for this year uh in my conversations with USA pickleball we wanted to really make a great presence there for the folks in Texas we know pickleball is booming in that state so we've increased the prize money up to sixty thousand dollars and we have put a golden ticket on that tournament this is the first golden ticket opportunity for.

Players to pre-register for 2023 Nationals in Indian Wells um great opportunity great opportunity for those folks in that region to try to get a ticket to get themselves to Indian Wells and we're real excited Texas we're going to Texas that is absolutely awesome news your first opportunity in the country to.

Get a golden ticket for the 2023 Nationals is coming to Houston Texas we're coming them for you he used to he we opened up registration today real excited Terry Stone Adam Stone's father has is the president of the Houston pickleball club and has been so instrumental with having us work with the Sada to bring pickleball to the.

Community down there a little bit right there getsignowicz out in front of it just enough thank you all right big series here for Anna and James that they can find themselves getting back into this game six nine oh that's a big two-hander there from.

Meg charity Meg's Got Game she does not back off not at all Meg has got game too wow hey right on cue Kent neither does Anna bright Anna's got a game she is just not backing down against Deco bar right there no no thank you.

Wow that's a nice little inside out down the line from Anna bright catching bar off guard yeah good patience there here from charity and Bar so who else like what came of this why did this come about you know going to Houston what what was what went into this with it turning into a Golden.

Ticket all of a sudden you know app's got a generous amount of golden tickets we're hoping to announce our schedule in a couple of weeks here and I just think as the mission of app is not only to promote Pro senior Pros amateurs and super seniors but with the golden ticket relationship with USA pickleball continuing on this path of growing the.

Sport you know we don't need to put another golden ticket in Florida we don't need to put one in Southern California we've got to keep getting to Regions that we can bring an app tour stop to and allow all players the opportunity to qualify for for Nationals so we're excited about Houston uh last week we opened up Sarah annsbury's.

Palmetto Dune app Hilton Head that's a fan favorite hey there's a golden ticket on that one too yep there is so we got golden ticket here this weekend we're in Michigan golden ticket in Palmetto Dunes um we have one in um Houston and that wraps it up for this year what protection there from for deckle.

Bar he protected charity coming up Charity was coming up on the stack she was not there in time and decal stepped in and took that forehand beautifully done he took one big step yes it was that's all he needed so what you usually see from bar on that is he will typically I'd say 75 80 percent of time drive his third and then.

He'll drop that fifth yep he drove that third but then almost half drove that fifth he goes a little long oh it's interesting I wonder if they talked about that during the timeout great drop by Anna wow she's growling at taco bar right there she was not fooled by this one bit she was there.

This is what I'm you know like I said decal's been off since fleshy Meadows getting time on court is so valuable so important foreign she got a good laugh out of it yeah she could laugh at it either way we are all tied up at nine now game one good return.

So ignotowicz picked up on bar covering for charity the last ball he hit now he sees him pinched in the middle what's he do he goes behind him yep I'm out here from bar and charity what are they discussing here in this timeout Ken oh you got it Dom you and I keep always enforcing going back to the basics getting a deep return getting the.

Ball out of your opponent's strike zone so they can't get a good rip on it you put that ball and enter a James Strike Zone there's a good chance they're going to tee off on that ball the sport has sped up so fast with the invasion of these tennis players and along with the technology and the paddles so they're going to really have to make.

Sure they get that return out of the opponent's Strike Zone deep and just get themselves on that volley line that no volley zone line that has a solid and clean first Valley I like how you're talking about the paddle technology too with some of these paddles now there's a lot of grip on these paddles the created players are creating a lot of shape on.

The ball and so they don't need to hit it as hard if you take something off it now create a little more dipping action as the ball gets to the net now when your opponent's hitting that ball they're having to hit up on the ball that'll create a pop-up and you're able to come in and put a ball away so these players catching on.

To that and like you said the invasion of the tennis players I think it's great for the sport it's everything it's the advanced Fitness the nutrition the uh the technology and the paddles all across the board it's making the tournament that much more exciting it is a game point here for the year 12 seed Anna bright and James ignatowich.

And Barr is short with you around the post and game one will go to Anna bright and James ignotowicz 11-9 great job by the youngsters we will see what deckle bar and make charity have in game number two Ken thank you for joining me Tom always great to be here I got to get back to work you gotta sign some checks buddy why don't you go on and get out of.

back here on Championship Court quarter final match-up Meg charity deckle bar taking on Anna bright James ignatowich Brighton ignottowish taking game one 11-9 we'll see if charity and Barr have an answer here game number two charity to serve D.

Wow big ball there from ignatowich they get the side out forced air there from charity free point here for bright and ignatowich all over that he's catching charity who's sitting in the Ernie position has the backside open just tries to do a little too much with it nice counter from Deco bar.

Ber zero one two no good leave there from Barr is that ball Sails Long time thank you not always gets an overhead and just.

Frames it off the edge try to do a little too much with that three one two so I got a special guest sneaking up on me in the booth now as Ken disappeared I'll let you know who that is in a second as soon as this Point's over stuck a bar going Full Tilt right there.

Kind of just like the player who stepped in the booth with me Lee Whitwell Lee how are you coming in full tint into the booth with you that's right that's right thanks for having me always it's a great matches so far going on today I know you were playing earlier you played with the you played in another.

Youngster you're just you're getting all these youngsters play with Gabe tardio earlier collecting them keep them all in your pocket it's a lot of fun playing with the youngsters and seeing them grow in the game you know and he's there's so much upside to Gabe's game and I think he just needs.

A little bit more confidence and um shot selection and decision making and I give him a few months and he's going to take the World by storm yeah and I love what you do you do that you know you do it a lot and also Simoni both of you like to play It's almost like you guys are giving back to the game with.

Playing with these guys but there are no slouches you play with Gabe you play with JW you play with with Georgia with Dylan you know what James I played with James yeah right and it's it's almost a mentoring of these younger players of how to handle themselves what to do with themselves how to play the game learning the little intricacies because it's very.

Important absolutely and you know we both come from the the position that it's hard to get partners when you're first starting out and you know it's like I don't want any of these guys to go through what we all went through trying to find partners and you know so yeah and decal almost shocked that Anna.

Bright was in position to hit that backhand Ernie but he thought I think she cleared the plane early but side out here for Brighton ignatowich I always tell everybody one of ignata which his first tournaments was one of my money balls almost a year ago and he played four five and he took silver he.

Took second he didn't even win it he has come a long way and he is old just misses that right there his confidence is growing in Leaps and Bounds and he's another one that's Watch Out World yes you know Federico's another one who's come into this space I love watching James play though and I.

Almost love interviewing him that much better too kid has so much personality yes oh wow shut it down you think he's sitting on that right there a little bit yeah I was about to say one of the shots that I'd like to see him add in is reaching.

In on that back end and being able to take a one-handed backhand out of the air so he can start flicking with a two-handed he limits his reach a little bit right and he and I talked about that and it's something he's committing to working on yeah and that's good those tips like that coming from you coming from an.

Andrea Coop coming from veteran players they need to absorb that and if they absorb that they don't understand how quickly they can advance especially when you're like 100 feet tall and wide that's right like he could probably reach the kitchen from with his arms right he's every bit of 612 and you know.

Decals like 7 12. so you know these guys are huge and they cover so much that's what James is learning as he's turning into and watching Deco play and he's doing that himself yeah I was I was talking to Adam actually a couple of weeks ago and telling him that he'd be a great partner and Mentor for James and teach James how.

To get big on the court like he did for decal yeah exactly exactly right we're two the game's inching along here oh that's tough right there it's very hard to ever when decals moving to try and go flat to him again because if he sees you go fly he's just gonna continue.

To come forward and there's so much meat on that back end when he earnings on that side it's it's not fun most of the time you're like it's a backhand you don't have to really respect it because it's a tricep no one's choice because that's wrong yeah but decals is a lot of meat yeah and Jekyll doesn't need to use the Lee.

Whitwell Runway so he just leaps over it I mean right it's gonna be a dangerous day when he does it's even even more on that ball when he's able to use your Runway yeah it's going to be vicious yes it's actually a walkway but I think he'll turn it into a Runway yeah yeah look at the hands on these two young kids I mean just keeping these balls in.

Play how frustrating though is that as an opponent when these guys are getting everything back it's uh it's a good tactic right when you when you can sit there and think I can get everything back because especially for the team that's on the offense they feel like they have to continually do more with that ball and a lot of the times you'll.

See the defensive specialist pull the error from the offensive team because the offensive team ends up going for too much right that's not coming back wow check the ball that's broken Deco actually looked at Anna and was like are you okay and almost got pissed that he asked yes she's mad like don't.

Ask me I'm fine just leave me alone I'm gonna get you the next one that's the kind of competitor she is though it was on it she had a read on it yeah that's where that's ignata which learning right that's a tough ball to hit when you can hit that two end Top Spin right you have.

Someone like decal he knows that Ball's gonna carry he watched you hit that he knows you got so much Top Spin on it that's a tough ball to hit right there if he's gonna do that he's got to create more depth on it well I also think that he needed to work that point furthermore move deck will bait him more into Meg's side you know and then roll right bring.

Him over one or two more steps and then that roll becomes really effective yeah and I think what we're going to see more and more of is so Anna it's not that long ago that Anna and James played college tennis and they have that college tennis mentality yeah the firiness of college sports yes where a lot of us that came.

Into the sport later you know we had that years ago yes it was years ago we're all trying to relive it and bring it back but sometimes it's so far gone right and this one these guys get fired over over things that you like why are you getting fired up over that right right but we're going to see more and more of that and it's great.

Great for the sport just a little ambitious there but you're right and I see that like Gabe um Gabriel Joseph was here playing singles yesterday I won him on Championship court all the time right I want to watch him talking to himself yeah I want to watch him screaming I want to watch him yelling I want that kind of player it's.

Good for the sport it's fun to watch people enjoy that and and it's good to see the emotion it's good to see the fire because it creates excitement right yep the crowd Feeds out there the last match we had out here yeah basketball and Yates Michelle Esquibel right as.

Soon as she gets fired up everyone around starts to pick up everything the energy in the stadium starts to pick up we want that I fired up Michelle is dangerous yes it is I'm hoping she gets fired up tomorrow if that's who you're playing with you like how I lead that in for you I love it way to.

Lead here trying to force a third game see that that high back in the eggnog originate that's that's one money he's got to go to that one he ended up there because he could have thrown that he could have smacked that back down the line at Meg who was back instead of letting that game come up to that net yep you know.

Leveling it out there or it's just too much pressure there from Big Deco bar and like you said watch decal he does that if he can reach him with the backhand he'll reach in one-handed but then he'll also hit that two-hander and that's what James needs to learn right there 100 and when he does oh forget it it's trouble we should.

All retire yes but it is a timeout here from Anna bright and James ignotowich and you're in their Corner Lee what are you gonna tell them as far as strategy goes to get back in this and try and end this in two so right now right you've got James trying to go a little bit behind decal too soon and decal's reading all of that.

I would have them isolate Meg a little bit more bring Force deckle to come over make him have those power moves and then even if he speeds up when he comes over their hands are so good they can counter Cross Court yep perfect strategy right there let's see if they're listening they've maybe pulled up the live stream oh we can't we gotta keep it from Deco.

Because Deco just came in here strategies win the last point but bar and charity doing a great job of keeping pressure on Brighton ignatowich right now and it seems to be throwing them off just enough decal sat on our table and we have a deckle sweat prank on the table now we auction it up on eBay later on tonight.

Let's take a picture of it and they're like this is decals five bucks decal spot five five going one once twice is he signing it 15. oh he's gotta sign it so a lot of the timeout 7-4 lead here for charity and Barr foreign he's seeing the ball pretty big right now he's he's feeling good he's finding.

His inner Lee Whitwell with the left hand there you go but you know it's it's one of the things that that we're seeing in the pickleball space too and this this is by no means an insult and a dig it's like but the younger players you know they need that certain game maturity to.

To understand that one tactic is not working that's let's switch gears right what what are your in-game adjustments it's all about in-game adjustments absolutely and they're they're trying to almost time out you know square square peg round hold it right it's like no that's that's move the ball to the to the right side.

Of the Court exactly so we'll watch the match earlier it was uh rightmar and wrecker were playing against Thomas Wilson and Paris Todd and this isn't a knock but Paris Todd and Thomas won game one but then wrecker and retinmeyer won game two in game three and wrecker and retinmeyer made adjustments from game one to game two I watched the whole.

Match from game one to game two and it stuck with it the problem was Wilson and Todd didn't make any adjustments after it's not that they got figured out but there was a strategy that was working for wrecker and reitenmeier and they didn't come out of it going okay we need to change this there was no in-game adjustments but that too leads into my.

Thought of I love seeing coaching in favor 100 right because a coach on the sideline we see all this we can see this we're an outside entity seeing this whereas when you're playing I know as a player I'm not seeing that why because I'm focused on playing I shouldn't have to see that that's what a coach is for and I love.

Seeing the coaching aspect that's one thing I love MLP you have your teammates you can have anyone else kind of coaching you along the way I love that aspect no I mean from from back here right and here's the thing coaching is one thing and but the players then have to make those adjustments correct and trust.

Versus survive I feel like James and Anna are surviving this game right now and trying to yeah right there's no speed up right now it's like find mag make deco come all the way over yes yeah and then the court opens up it's do a to do beat correct oh we're good aren't we we're incredible should we go on tour exactly.

But you're exactly right though too is even if you do have a coach how hard is it to make an in-game adjustment it's very hard especially when you have a game plan already and it's also trusting your partner oh look what he just did right it was almost like he's listening he hit two drops he forced Echo to try and speed.

That up he has to recognize that right now he has to do it again you don't want decal that's the time right I said I want you to do that again drop drop but recognition see Meg is slow coming up on the on the stack and go right there and it makes the fence they haven't gone down that line.

So in her mind she had all the time in the world she was not hitting that third right so Brighton ignite which answer within two now big hold here got to get a side out here and try and end this in two good reset for bright he finally waited for him to get in the.

Middle then go with that Lee you're a genius I know genius I tell you all this advice for free we should be charging another big hole here if they can get it I would have been a little bit more patient I feel like James but they're one shot too soon yeah it worked but.

But they got the side out what nothing you can do there off the tape fights ready for it James's Drive set up a little bit so decal was able to find ground trash earlier and you know a lot a lot of people may not know this that are watching um Travis was a world-class tennis.

Player and a phenomenal tactician so he's able to see and come up with a game plan and make those in-game adjustments he and I were talking yesterday and he's like man I wish I could have come to this sport 20 years ago when I was in my 20s I said the same thing I mean he'd be so dangerous.

Time out being called here the offensive timeout we've seen this from charity and bar a bunch already today is calling that offensive timeout I like it right now regroup you've got the side out you're gonna serve here and they have a chance to win this second game Lee's got fans they're screaming at her right now but talk a little more about.

What you and Travis were talking about with that and he's talking about he wanted to be in the game 20 years ago you know why is that he's he has a unique ability to see you know patterns holds tactics that are working and he's such a master of the game in such a short amount of time and you know he's like I.

Just got to get in much better shape the ball doesn't care how old I am my opponents don't care how old I am but if I was in my 20s I'd run circles around exactly and he was up he split with JW and Singleton was up 5-1 he's like and I ran out of gas he's like I knew exactly what I needed to do I just ran out of gas right and you know he's 20 years.

Older than JW so our paper at J dub has this exactly youth is on his side you see Davis you have one time you know father time he's undefeated I'm 100 undefeated has never lost um and it's just what can you do you know where can you be.

And seven lead here for charity and bar if we come back from this time out looking to force the third game ing nice shot and I thought it got a wish was gonna speed that one up and he didn't which was the right shot he gave himself the next shot which was to put away great patience and I was willing him to.

Speed it up at night I'm like you got this and I think that he would have had the same result ah yeah one too many times with that spot great read by Quebec charity she reads this perfectly little punch backhand Ernie it is a game point here for charity and.

Bar and James cannot let that shot get in his head because it was the right play he just went a little too close down the line oh great defense from Anna bright keeping them in that point fighting off a game point baited into it Jackal almost.

I'm gonna I'm gonna pull this back but I'm gonna kind of Mosey my way back and now I'm gonna go he almost stopped to let Anna think that it was there I would have liked to seen Anna pull the trigger down the line on a speed up sorry down the middle not that yeah could hold there from charity and bar as.

The veterans will look to force a third game this has been their MO in both of their previous matches they dropped game one and one games two and three let's see if they can keep this up I love how late companies are better all right they are complete veterans oh that's a veteran shot right there from the rookie and a bright.

Let's go I mean that she needed to force that middle because decal has been too jumpy on on the line still a game point I'd like to see Anna yeah he's not getting a ton of topspin on it they're really hard and flat and then yeah they're a little high over the net so I think they're going out and.

That'll force them to drop us thirds instead of Drive slash backspin yeah wow great Point by all four of these players I mean good get by Anna bright as that ball had a ton of backspin almost going back into the net off of deckle Bar's paddle.

That was also you know James is being a little bit of a rookie going to the well one too many times I'm not cross court instead of just being like okay listen let's reset this point start over on that dribble to yeah inside out I mean that's just like Dane Gingrich does that all day long it's so annoying it's so annoying if that's his shot he works.

On it he teaches It Go watch his videos he's like for 299 you can learn how to hit him yep oh wow what a jump right there from Deco bar and we will go to a third game here in this quarterfinal matchup I mean he's sitting in the middle of the Court when he jumps from their unbelievable job by decobar we'll go to three we'll take a.

Open part of the USA pickleball national championship series Dominic Catalano alongside the one the only the Rock of Gibraltar Lee Whitwell hi guys I've just been informed I'm being kicked out of the booth after this match so uh you're out it's like a it's like a a revolving door if you guys want to keep me in the booth start throwing.

Your comments online yeah do it and uh you know we will aim to please show me what the people wanted so you want me to go I will go start blowing up Lee's phone I want to see how many text messages she can get in the next 10 minutes to see I love it how many how many messages will it take we'll say it probably take about 21. 21 messages.

That's one people foreign that's gonna be a no filter documentary oh it's going to be awesome oh here we go messages already starting who is that chase yes oh Chase I love you brother and Jeff from L.A stay in the booth.

Lead here for Brighton eggnogowicz and we got Maverick is in the booth now with us oh my goodness MAV what's up buddy we got dogs we got everything that's how we do it here City fall tackle second server another right foot fault there.

So if I'm waiting on the winner of this match who do you think I'd want to win I want to play the youngsters see I would go with I want to play Gekko and Meg from the standpoint of this has been a very physical game for decal yeah so it's a hard level to keep up and this is his third.

Match to three games so he's played nine games after this match correct that's a long day a very long day so I would want to play I would be rooting for Deco and Meg because James and Anna playing more of an even split game yep Dom the DMS count as requests oh yeah okay DMS count Rosemary thank you for.

That and Anna as soon as she hit that she was upset with herself she knew that was coming back with some Pace great job by Deco bar but I like your strategy Lee yes if I want to play I want to play Maybe Declan Meg is Deco has been off since the New York City open we've had some free time.

Oh and ignatowitz tries to go header over the net almost gets it actually LA Galaxy if you are recruiting we got James here who it's almost a clean header winner right and you know if I'm playing if I'm playing them next I want I'm gonna force it to go to go to yeah absolutely absolutely yeah.

Whoa whoa that's a big boy coming forward right there and fast one point lead here for charity and Bar no wow nothing you can do on that ball great tactical log from charity setting that up for a minute I thought she was gonna lob over the tall guy yeah smart move not to.

Go over the tall guy but she hit a good angle yes ma'am here yes ma'am three one one just long there on the counter from Anna bright EST and I said come on yeah and uh a timeout.

From Anna Brighton James ignatowicz down 4-1 here they will get the end change on six so be a free timeout coming up then you like the time out here at 4-1 yes I um I think they've allowed Dakota to run away and get very big in the first few points so this is a way to stop it and tactically they've got the time out.

At six yeah so it's a double timeout if need right absolutely in my opinion when you're in that game that third game you know you have that time out in the middle right if I'm going to use a timeout before the six I'm gonna look at anywhere at three or four right I don't want to go too early don't wanna go too late you're not gonna go at five because.

The next Point's a free time out so at three or four I'll take one there that's fine then you have the one at six and then you get down you get deep and you go maybe at eight or nine is when I can use that third one but yes I do agree with the time out here at 4-1 maybe slow the momentum get that side out four one one.

Observer got it right there and you read that one and unfortunately went a little long you hear coach Gingrich in the background going what you want what you want keep it up go for it right there Dane he is troubled keeping his emotions in check right you know it's not often I.

Give that man a compliment but I will today um I'm kidding we're Dana and I are good friends wow what hands there from Deco bar just staying in that point it's hot it's hard to compliment Dane a lot it is but you know what he's one of the he's one of the he's actually one of the few great.

Mental and tactical coaches out there um God that pained me to say that it hurts it hurts it hurts oh just long and I know that hurts too because during covid I I thought Dane was losing his mind with the videos he was putting out I thought he was losing.

His mind you want some entertainment go back on the Danes social media pages and check during kovid I thought he was losing it but he made it he made it he made it out he did you know his gymnastics wow what a counter that's the right time for that right and where's he got knuckle bar way too many.

To that backhand and um and I may have chatted in between on the on the end change there and we were talking about that speed up going to James's right hip instead of into his backhand yeah thank you I pointed that out yesterday in singles that if I'm going to go to ignatowicz in.

Singles yesterday I'm going to his forehand I'm avoiding that two-handed backhand at all cost it was so dialed in yesterday it's almost backwards you want to go to some guy's forehand in singles but he was so dialed in with it and he is right now too it was bright Nick notowich get one back.

Here five two see if they can hold here and get a little closer before the end change five two one that's good hands there from Anna bright staying in that point let's go nice two-handed RIP by Anna forcing.

Decal to go with the left hand catching the edge get that hole try an inch closer that's a good setup there from Anna bright going down the line on deckle bar and what you saw there is a slow decal bar right it was leaning right.

And then wasn't able to push off onto the left it's right back to what you were saying Lee if I'm jargine and JW right now that's who you want I'm proud yeah I'm happy because I'm gonna but my game time would be to run duck on and it's like nothing.

Against Equity is a phenomenal player but three three math three three gamers is is brutal was dead and I'm trying to say that my charity crossed the plane of the night without hitting the ball the referee telling her that the ball was dead what was Meg.

Jumping over was there an imaginary piece of string there it was their bomb about to go up like what was she jumping over there was a tripwire okay specifically for Ernie it's a little long there and we will get the end change on the paddle of Meg charity and deckle bar.

I do like that Brighton ignato which get a little closer there so the Gap isn't as it was it could have been 6-1 now it's six three they keep it a little closer here within Striking Distance but what needs to change here for Brighton ignato is to get back in here you know I think they've got to just keep finding Meg and then going behind.

Echo and forcing his movement and really stressing right now if I'm if I'm James and Anna it's um deco's Fitness is going to win this match we're going to win it or lose it on his Fitness yeah yeah and really force that issue and not play safe and really just go For Broke you know not driving everything but really moving that ball around and.

Being smart and pulling him middle pulling him over the Meg pulling him wide and making him in that dink rally stress him out a little bit all right let's see if they're listening to the live stream and listening to you we come back in ball will be on the paddle of Deco bar here up 6-3 six three two.

Good side out there from Brighton ignatowicz see if they can answer here get back in this thank you ball he wanted right there not a witch bar almost didn't attack that for some reason if I was up and he did not do.

Much with it againwich missed opportunity he had the ball he wanted yep absolutely but they cannot capitalize on the side out on the end change and 6-3 Lead trying to add to it our charity and Bar yeah great great read there from Meg charity and she's been looking for that.

Lee well and when you're playing with somebody with decal's reach right he's going to come over force the issue so now they've Shrunk the court to find Megan Meg's able to jump out yeah and hit that Ernie actually and a backhander knee is hard to hit oh.

Absolutely it's not it's not that easy all right another opportunity right there too and again the inexperience starting to show a little bit maybe trying to do a little too much on both of those balls is a not a witch and bright maybe what do you think I think so and you know it speaks to to decal's experience playing the game and.

Um capitalizing on that you know I think he might be baiting them a little bit because he's got such fast hands yep that uh he's gonna force them into something they may not be ready to do yep absolutely and now you're seeing Anna bright trying calm down James ignatowich in their Corner as we speak.

But they need to do that very quickly as this one's getting away charity and bar within three of winning another match that's gone three this is their ninth game in three matches and I expect duckle to take charge right now really keep his foot on the gas and come.

In and drive it it's gonna really put pressure you cannot remaining let's go eight three one nice job I got which out of the timeout going backside on deckle bar still need to get one more here though so quick with that two-handed backhand.

Enable the generate so much to compact foreign from Anna bright right what's she do with that float return it's giving herself time to get over on the stack instead of ripping that not giving yourself enough time that side's open she floats it a little bit gets a little air underneath it gives herself some.

Time earning number 433 from dog in just game three and just came so you hear Anna bright apologizing to partner ignatowich she knows that's not where she needs to go with that ball oh Jacko just going a little too long on that has all the time in the world but.

Hits it flat he does not get over the top of that ball which he need to do he wishes he could have that back 100 they do have a little bit of a cushion here though so perfect spot there from Barr in the middle and get that side out quick hydration break from ductile and.

See him look to create now extend that lead thank you please my issue right there is ignanowicz goes at the body of bar bar has his paddle up you know which hits his paddle literally gotta go down at his feet right there you had the opportunity to.

On The Run ignatowicz hitting that two-handed backhand he made it look easy that's not an easy shot I think Michael did have that shot and he dreadedness yeah he took Dane's class he did take Dane's class.

For a very low price of 299 dollars oh Dane says way more and not able to answer unfortunately Lee and trading side outs here not able to close that Gap in the offensive time out here from decobar and Meg charity honestly I only think that they've used offensive timeouts this whole day.

It's just such a a I think it's such a positive thing to use him that when you can you're in the lead that's when it allows you to do that absolutely but using those offensive timeouts what's it allow you to do as an offensive team it just allows you to regroup and not get caught up into the pattern that you were playing with previously on the side out.

It just gives you that moment to breathe and think and tactically come up with a plan that um and also creates I feel like it sometimes creates a little bit of doubt in my opponents in in your opponent's Minds like what are they going to do what are they changing up right all right so we'll see what charity and.

Barr have in store here as bar trying to find some shade charity ready to go brightening not to which knee these side outs here they do not need to let this get any further away on the paddle of Meg charity as we return yeah great great Point construction.

Great defense by Anna and ignatovich the decals staying strong and staying on the offensive giving them 9-4 they finally broke the eight four questions deck will hit that ball into the booth here had to hit that angle wow that's a big ball there for mcnautovic but talk about that a little.

Bit Lee is the angles on overheads that's more important if you hit balls flat back to the Baseline these players are gonna get that ball back pretty much every time exactly it's a classic ball it's not going anywhere gotta hit those angles ing.

Love it I love that that's a veteran move from Deco bar right there he did not do too much with that little wrist flicks to keep the pressure on but did not try and do too much with either one of those balls giving them a match point here on his paddle with this big serve expect him to go real big here absolutely.

And he did way to handle it by not a witch ball ends up out of the stadium again four ten two that's tough gray aggressive great defense by Megs to keeping him in that point and then great finish by decol.

Navratil I'm Michelle McMahon alongside seven-time U.S open medalist Dominic Catalano some sisterly love on Championship Court here today Dom the next half hour to 45 minutes there will be but in the end they'll be fine but right now they each want to punch that ticket.

To the winner bracket final so we'll see what happens here Maggie is playing extremely well the past month or so so this ought to be a good match ramenzi starts us off with the serve aggressive down the middle setting the tone right off the bat yeah nice step in there from Andre de ascu making his presence felt and right there off the.

Bat that's just gonna make mavericksville and Coop think about floating a ball in the middle rimenzi continues the serve they crack the scoreboard first let's go never till lines up the backhand seals the needle yeah nice attack there from navratily goes right at the body.

Of Maggie romenzi navratil will take it back with that nasty serve now to Andrea coop tournament director here in Grand Rapids Michigan also a full-time lawyer impressive uh-huh what defense on the side of the SQ and.

Ramenzi not enough though too powerful for navratil and Coop starting things off yeah we talked earlier about how Andrea coop is such a good Defender ramenzi is right there with her I want to ask you hesitated he wanted to go for the Ernie and I think it was there but he stopped.

And then over ran the ball actually Andrea Coop on the service run she continues never till just shy of the net service surrendered over to Maggie romenzi and Andre daskey they ask you a former ATP touring professional all six foot twelve of them according to.

Andrea Coop that's a good spot right there from dascu as Coupe got pulled off the sideline navratil did not really commit to the middle creates a hole till creates the pop-up and capitalizes as all Zane navratso right there in the middle creating Havoc serve as long sign out to the side of coop and navratil any early strategies.

You're looking for here Dom all four of these players know each other so well um it's going to be who executes their game plan better No One's Gonna really change much they're gonna stay within what they do best and this is what we're gonna see a lot of it's the Coop and romenzi show and then it's going to be de-esco and maverickel.

Stepping in and trying to change things up a little bit we're gonna get a lot of this and it's just gonna be the gentleman trying to step in and create off of that you know slow dink game from Coop and remendsi Andrew Coop so powerful that backhand down the middle navratil.

Y on the surf oh what one great defense on both sides unbelievable what hands there from desk you're just resetting that each time never to attack them coop is the second server on her side and this game is as taser gets best two of three games to 11.

That ball Sails Long almost catches navrats Hill excuse me sign out that bowl did catch an average Hill remendsi will take us back trailing by two okay two three one yeah.

So wrong receiver we're at three three ask who sends it wide but a dink battle finished off by Andrea Coop nice job down the line catching Andre to ask who in the middle just enough Andrea Coop lining up that two-handed backhand down the middle they're forcing the block long.

Coop with the surf navratil gets tagged again not too happy about that no he held his composure though because he wanted to rip that ball after it hit him foreign Coupe playing some good defense staying patient for that point that's not a ball.

Romence he's going to miss very often so unfortunate for her she Clips the top of the tape never till ready locked and loaded on the forehand yeah it's tough right there remendsi trying to speed up from a very tough position I think as soon as that hit her paddle and came off she wanted to grab.

It and pull it back and do something different because that was not the shot at that moment from that position you hear the crowd react behind us that was to Mavericks they'll serve he had a lot of kick on that server and what a good job by ro
