good morning ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the viola La open presented by Deep EDD vodka here we go guys Colin shik point on the board versus Wang Y which is what we’re going to learn to pronounce his name correctly today or do.

Our best Colin shik one- Zer to serve what a slap oh beautiful forehand from Colin shik expecting Elite level movement from both players here shake up two against formerly known as dong hang do our best to pronounce it correctly today which is Wang.

Y oh so much power sets himself up beautifully nice oh Colin and it is wide excuse me we’re now in our round 16 round of 16 only 16 players remain in this Men’s Pro singles draw the LA open here presented by Deep Eddie vodka thanks for joining us oh nasty and that is out w toer.

One two long to serve side out back in the hands of Colin shik just a college pickle ball Allstar here at the elite level serving up another point for himself 31 now this game to 11 win by two best to three thanks for joining us guys Rob Cassidy here and hope you’re having a great.

Morning oh yeah heavy for oh the reach on Hong plus his expertise with the wrist allowing him to get that angle on Max reach is unreal one of the many reasons for his success in this last year oh Mis drop speaking of reasons for these boys.

Success both of these players on the court two of the most dedicated hardworking work ethic individuals that we have seen the in this sport to date just putting in the hours not just practice but good practice oh that’s so good great dictation of the point by Wong it’s time to put some points on the.

Board oh and a heavy crosscourt forehand from Wong Yong we’ll get there guys we’ll get there we’re going to keep practicing make sure it’s right formerly known as Quang dong but there is a better pronunciation the correct pronunciation closely is Wong.

Yung goes for it Colin schik out of Greensboro North Carolina representing the East Coast here in California the serve the return tough Miss time to forget about that one and play the next Point here Colin racking up points in game one.

Serve is out point on the board from the big serve got to go for the serve especially in singles 34 here one-point game as Wong Yung settles in heavy Top Spin and follows it up whether that was in or not just putting.

The ball on Colin shik very quickly tie game oh yeah yep it was out and that ball was dropping in heavy Top Spin what what great placement from y 54 Wong the serve oh and just strictly rips it to.

The back corner this is something I kind of like to see two players rocking the c p it is one of the best paddles out there as far as power pop is concerned uh but just the fact that we have two players out there with the exact same paddle it’s going to be that much more coming down to a level of.

Skill you know as far as fairness is concerned the the playing field is evened out if both people have the exact same piece of equipment in their hands another powerful serve goes for it no point of the match and it’s in fantastic exchange between our boys here respect showing from both sides sides scores 64 W to.

Serve oh oh he gets a pedal on it but no the Checkmate is still there long putting points on the board 74 now in this race to 11 win by two that ball is out loving how Yong is using his serve to take control of these points let’s take a look at his serve here in his stance how big his motion is see if we.

Can apply it to our games at home let’s take a look nice and stable big exhale nice follow through perfect position for his next shot shik sees it just out side 4 a Do or Die time here for Colin shik huge blast as he takes the net with his momentum he’s got Shake running.

Corner to corner goes for it but no long shuts it down impressive performance oh and if you guys are checking the uh the brackets we just had barn burner uh Jay deil versus uh Augie gay Augie G that’s how he pronoun his name we’re gonna learn guys we’re GNA get him right Augie G uh coming out on top against jilia not.

An easy task and neither is taken a point from Colin shik off of the serve W is rolling 94 okay and no problem there mean 94 he’s you know misses one out of nine or 10 of his serve so far it’s definitely worth.

It oh fantastic nice getting those angles it’s his reach his movement plus his masterful use of his wrist that’s something at the lower levels we we strive for them to use perhaps less rist but you know that’s just because it’s a little foreign once you get those foundations down those fundamentals down.

That’s when you can start to apply more rist more expertise with your wrist and this guy’s got it oh so many options on that backand sweeps that one a little too far right do or die time for Colin shik Colin Chi definitely wanted to give a shout out to his mom and his dad pretty cool.

Shout out to the east coast in general K representing very well oh goes for a lot on that server turn into a timeout time to just kind of adjust the engines a little bit find it and uh get that last little push for game one in the books I like it I like that timeout Megan people see a timeout as sign of.

Weakness I think is definitely a sign of wisdom there’s no reason not to use them use them for different reasons catch your breath evaluate the situation maybe reset mentally maybe take a picture with the girlfriend loosen up a little bit put this game in the books the violia LA open presented by Deep.

Eddie vodka thank you guys so much for joining us here this morning my name is Rob Cassidy uh honored to give you guys this action live and uh more matches to come in my opinion this is an epic standoff between two of the young bloods in this game that are going to be around for a very long while and here we go 59 Colin shik to.

Serve off the net and in Still Loving uh Wong yung’s explosive server turn into taking the net let’s see him use it again here he’s definitely taking the net every every shot he can stays in is in control can he keep it no Colin shik with an angle to take it back hanging around.

Wong Yun surrounded by family and his team see ba in the audience as a brother as well as duke his dad who has been helping him out very well to develop shots just like that as federick Goa mentioned in one of his interviews earlier you know he’s playing so well because of the work that he’s putting in off court that no one.

Else sees and that’s inspiration that anybody wants to get back better that not only at Singles pickle ball but anything in life here we go with the counter shuts it down again takes him to the net no pop up off the bounce the angle but no off the net giving Wong 10 now game point.

And that’s out that’s life for Colin shik Wang who still in game one we go such a deeper turn so much pressure on shik on that Baseline ball back in hand for another game point opportunity for Wang can already hear the people at home he is botching his name so bad right now.

Well we’re going to learn how the right way to say it and what we have right now is Wang Yun to serve for game point heavy serve and it’s gonna get it done so good game one in the books and here we go awesome starter to the morning here guys thank you so much for joining us here at the violia LA open presented by.

Deep Eddie vodka my name is Rob Cassidy thank you for joining us we will be right back after a quick break the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka is brought to you by violia the official sustainability partner of the PPA Tour by Deep Edy vodka Dive In by by carvana serving happiness all season long by Sketchers.

Conquer the court in Comfort by be the official wealth management partner of the PPA tour and by Fela to play like a pro you need to dress like one can we get a new ball for our second please all right and we are back here at the violia LA open presented by Deep edty vodka Colin shik Lang Yung thank you guys for joining us game two coming.

Up first game going to Yung Colin shik to serve the adjustments to be made very light very little players like L there’s no weaknesses just little chinks in the armor just so solid quick side out oh in a beautiful shot from Wang.

Yung the curvature on that ball um it doesn’t matter at the elite level the recreation level ball path is usually the most important thing you can focus on he just some beautiful shots wow the Cross Court shik all over it there time more pressure Doom gets it back the ding shot oh the hustle and no.

The cat and mouse goes to Colin shik this time ball back in hand time for col shik to get to work here if I had recommendations which I don’t I would suggest breathing baby and maybe going for a little bit more on that serve it’s a nice easy point for him.

Just what he needed May going to find a Groove here string together a couple points oh no taking it back that’s the type of point that can turn the tables beautiful finesse shot just zero swing just all in the hands and then hunting that ball down to get that drop.

Shot Well Done by Colin here we go it’s a good get oh the slap might have had his weight going a little bit away from the net there which is why uh why that ball didn’t exactly clear the that to serve and another point off of.

It if Colin could just get a little more consistent with a powerful serve everybody talks about having a consistent serve but when you’re out there practicing your consistency practice those positive attributes coming consistently as well off the net Shi is there ah and he takes it ferto Rico stat rout you’re needed on.

Court S3 stat rout to court S3 no and that’s going to stay in a beautiful shot from Colin shake to keep him in this match that was huge can he keep it going building momentum Point by Point 3-2 here that’s a better C that’s a difficult shot to execute side out here one-point game here in.

Game two Wong Yung versus Colin schik Wong Yung to serve and another point for Wang Yung Wang yung in the house everybody ta jeez still back up shake notice oh here we go and beautiful play I mean notice Wang y served that one and took the net.

First that’s how influential the serve is in this big ball game if you guys are just tuning in thanks for joining us here at the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka we are here in game two scores 43 Wang Yun to serve and that is staying in all day I feel like the difference is that.

Wang Yung puts everything into every shot it’s why he’s here like why wouldn’t he why wouldn’t I and you can also it’s just a reflection that’s how he practices very focused practice there’s practice and then there’s good practice and that one a little deep shik needs to breathe and you find.

That second win that extra energy and get to work so low can hear both players with the self talk little more frustration coming from shik more positivity coming from long shake with the ball 35 oh y is there to shut it down Shake is.

Going to need to dig deep and perhaps find a couple more options on that ball POS the problem but I POS no Solutions another tough ball play y to serve little much that’s better to be aggressive than passive tell you.

What again his percentages are through the roof expect to miss one every once in a while but his consistency is barnone 36 Colin shik to serve oh and a beautiful passing shot to close the gap and the wind keeps that ball in play there’s no way that Wang Yu could have read that.

Did get lucky or did he play the wind on purpose I will say from somebody who does not have the tennis background that’s one of the things I would like from the tennis is just the ability to utilize the win to your advantage at any given time goes for it oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah.

That’s staying in oh my goodness oh my goodness Colin chick in the house to see the fight from him here at this point in the match so good and again that’s two in a row utilizing the wind perhaps in his favor ball is out into a quick timeout by Lang yum.

Thursday April 18th 2024 the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka thank you guys for joining us here this morning kick off our singles broadcast here on Grand stamp Court I’m Rob Cassidy here like to thank you guys for joining us and thank a few of our sponsors here during this timeout Yola lifetime carvana.

Sketchers and of course deep Eddie Vodka it’s definitely a good timeout by oang yum as he consults with his coach dad Duke y he’s got a lot to say too flooded with information he’s going to use it well adjustments to be made shik with ball in hand game two folks game one going to.

Lang Yung and here we go 76 now it’s 36 just a moment ago oh casual but a little too casual that would have been a nice pretty drop that’s what we call a good timeout out Shi holds him off here we go let’s take a.

Look oh sure tough shots tough tough shots controlled angle from Lang yung’s crosscourt backand is nothing short of elite here in the great game of pickle ball that serve that was very linear so good attacks the sideline attacks the crosscourt.

Oh nice it’s kind of a little bit of the difference between hustle and Rush seemed like he might have been rushing that point just a little bit seeking answers when he might already have it oh no another tough ball is the palm trees here at the Los cab Tennis Center are swaying in the background need some paper weights on my.

Desk only person who seems to be wielding it well is Colin shik here 86 sh conceits that it was in tough ball right on the line 68 now Wang y looking to get off that six here we go.

And it’s in the risk reward on the serve pays off he’s off the six is this going to be flash pan or is this going to be the Avalanche here we go and takes it to the sideline extremely unexpected extremely hidden tie game sh Paints the line these exchanges are.

Wild wild exchanges 98 now tries to show a move but y Waits plenty long enough to make his decision correctly he now has a match point situation here here we go life for Colin Shake boom’s.

Eyes keep darting towards his coach 810 here slap big curvature potentially out huge hustle and an honorable point Colin schik Match Point number two for Wang Yung heavy serve heavy return and the.

Return comes out on top just nice and deep so many decisions to be made in these singles exchanges sh looking to uh to return deep middle to perhaps take away the angles from uh Lang Yu he got the serve he got the serve back and then calls his timeout I like that play it’s rarely utilized calling your timeout in the.

Advantage state but something’s got to shift you can’t just keep serving and siding out serving siding out so reset action little pause in the Rhythm see if you can take control of the last couple beats of this game too thank you you guys for tuning in Rob Cassidy here hope you guys are having a great day it’s a great day for pickle.

Ball wherever you are we appreciate you and uh it’s a pleasure to give you guys the best seat in the house here the uh violia La open presented by Deep buy vodka gotta say Colin shik’s coming back looking pretty refreshed after that side out or that time out see what he can do with it oh and that is so nasty that’s what we.

Call a good timeout onepoint game guys very critical point here as it is a win by two to tie it up would be crucial here Colin shank to serve some heavy side out 109 here in game two guys Match Point number three and that’s going to do it just utilizing.

His shots to control the weight of Colin shik game and match to Wang Yung congratulations as he moves on in our bracket Colin shik another fantastic singles performance from him and here we are Wang dun will play potentially federo sta rout in the next round so we have a wangu versus.

Federo sta potentially in the next round stick around for that guys thank you for tuning in up next on grand stand Court which is the one you are watching right now is Jeanie brashard versus Emily a that is going to be a good one folks and that being said we’ll also have an additional commentator with special guest action for that one so thank you.

Auran and jeie bushard ready to do battle on Grand St Court thank you guys for joining us Rob Cassidy who joined with Michelle esel here we go another blistering serve into an outall time to settle in shavel here with us this is going to be what I feel like a quick game so.

Michelle as a singles Master like yourself I’d love for you to give any insights to the viewers at home as often oh my oh just why well yeah we got Jeanie bashard from Montreal Canada 30-year-old stud uh she made it as far as the 2014 Wimbledon finals as a singles player and here we have Emily.

Agrian from Thousand Oaks California 24 years old look for heavy hitting couple side outs here as both players seem to be settling in oh nice ball in the back corner and not so much of a tennis overhead little tricky a little tricky.

Yeah the ball in tennis is a lot heavier and it’s a little windy today so the ball’s moving all all over the place oh what a shot from a did you teach her that she is a D1 tennis player from St Louis abiso so she learned that from college good to know good to know great deep Serve by.

Acrian yeah we saw arrian go deep in some MLPs as well winning some finals I believe big swing ball sells little left she Clos that paddle face up just a little bit easier said than done as those things right inarto to Port S2 inarto to Port S2 oh oh almost digs that out yeah and you see there you know the beginning of.

The game trying to get some Rhythm trying to get some rallies going a little bit longer so you could find uh some pros and cons from the opponent oh chess match there Genie trying to find her way to the net but Emily’s forehand crosscourt is working for her so far is it return is just long Emily’s feeling a.

Little Groove here on her serve two points on the side out oh that’s a good di oh go back it’s kind of interesting how when the ball is like super low that she uses the backhand slice to potentially dig it out do you think that’s a good idea I mean when the ball is low you.

Don’t have many options other than two slice oh that’s a good approach just got to play it Genie with a open and she gets it yeah and it’s just more of an extension she Emily did it again there um not quite getting to that backhand side so that reach Genie finding that backhand corner on.

Acran that slap approach I think maybe taking the net was what caused that ball to go deep a little bit there definitely had a rum going toward towards the kitchen line as she took the shot singles is brutal here we go oh oh sure sure sure it’s a great exchange can hear pman self talk she.

Said I had one I think she did it was a great time to take the net unlocking net Court there wow putting a lot of chips into that backhand sliced shot and jeie definitely targeting her back hand at this point she calls I’ll see your back can slice and raise you.

This tough trajectory on that return timeout called I think it’s a good time for that we’ll see if it helps aan turn the tables here Jee Rashard taking full control here it’s one of the things one of the many things you noticed from the tennis players coming over such as yourself Michelle is that Elite athleticism that comes with that.

Tennis background yeah you’re going to see a lot of explosive movements to each ball you have the court whole Court to cover so pushing off that first step is super important especially if you want to get that passing shot auran brashard grand stand Court.

Violia La open 2024 brought to you by Deep Eddie vodka as our ladies take the court we got our referees taking very good control of this match we’re in good hands here folks the PPA Gina brard to serve see if she can keep it going see what akman can do 74 74 out and I’m sure we’ve talked about.

This before but you know sometimes you see these ladies staying back on that Baseline versus the guys that we just watched are blitzing that net every time mm when I’m out there I don’t know what to do great get it’s good ball St bashard serves and takes the net first.

It’s a nice drop from aan oh another followup shot there it is paying in dividends arriman finally finding that drop there on her backhand side forcing Genie to play the bounce hitting up on that ball love it see if Bard here decides to take the net no she stays.

Back now she takes the net and gets pass yeah Emily Emily is definitely three on three on her forand crosscourt passing shot trying to set up the point so that she could find that ball Point AC seems to be settling in gaining some momentum here deep serve and deep.

Return Genie asking the ref if he saw that return and not enough not enough to see the overturn that was rightfully so to check that was very close uh ball is called out and here we go 7 seven on Sudden oh into a Mis return into a timeout and that is four points in a row from Emily arrian’s side out there she.

Takes a Jeanie bashard takes a timeout feel like Jeanie could go back to her backand she was uh finding a little something there on acrian but we’ll see if she regroups and finds it yeah she can push the focus past that you know perhaps frustrating call and uh ReDiscover those patterns that were working for her you know she definitely.

Had a nice solid start see if she can recover got a beautiful day here in Fountain Valley California nice overcast weather are we technically in Orange County Michelle we are in Orange County we’re in my backyard is that where you’re from maybe yeah coach College tennis right down the street from here how about.

That and now you teach pickle ball if I’m yeah that’s right pickle ball little old game called pickle oh here we go guys there’s that forehand crosscourt that arrian’s been crushing 97 is Aran has taken control of the ship here see what bashard can do deep balls from both sides oh and a tough Miss could kind of hear it off.

That contact that might have missed the uh sweet spot on that last one aan in a game point situation here Emily arrian took six points off that last side out giving her a good run and the lead here in the game jie bashard deciding to stay back here giving her a point not rushing anything and at this.

Point in her career she’s probably much more comfortable back there mhm think she picks the right times to come up to the net at least for the most part here backing with that slice mhm handled by brashard Deep ball Zinger oh acan blitzes the net rard tries to pass passes again can she get there yes point of the match ball is.

In not bad not bad now jeie bashard with two points there on the side out getting a little bit closer with a onepoint differential 910 here in the first game super exciting stuff guys thanks for joining us we’re here at the LA open presented by violia Rob Cassidy by my side thanks for.

Joining Rob than glad to be here glad to be here to witness that fantastic Point won by jeie bashard uh and glad to be able to share it with you guys at home so thanks for joining with us here violia La open presented by Deep Ed vaka it was a really nice regain of the control of the match by brashard.

Can she put game one in the books or can acrian utilize this timeout and put one game in her favor 60c timeout and we are back here Aran to receive Genie Brar deserve here we go it’s a great timeout by great timeout halting that momentum game point number two here we.

Go is out it’s a good game one that’s a good game one if it’s any indication of what game two and potentially three to come there’s going to be more good exchanges and not as quick as I thought it was going to be I think these G ladies are going to go hard in game two yes Emily.

Akman uh wanted to give a shout out to her older sister Caitlyn her mom and fiance she’s getting married next month um so congratulations to Emily uh winning game number one jie bashard looking to take game two these ladies get two minutes between games to uh towel down hydrate up get the mental.

Toughness back in the right direction what do you like to do during timeouts or game switches you know that’s a great question Rob um everyone’s different but for myself I love to kind of stay focused think about the last game what I could do differently if I’m down what I could stick with if I’m up and uh stay positive you know it’s you’re out here.

All by yourself and singles the only person that can motivate yourself is you so I like that I like that a lot it is a grind it is is a lot of tough work it is very lonely sometimes but I feel like with Genie Bard’s experience she could definitely come back in this game too Emily arrian with her college experience is looking to.

Close this out so she’s you know moving in her chair right now I love it both very intense they’re both doing the same movement staying on their toes in their chairs nice so earlier today Emily akan had to defeat Audrey Lord to get into this match uh pretty handedly 112 116 so that’s a nice little warmup going into this uh Genie brashard fresh I believe.

This is her first match of the day which at times can be tricky game two here we go oh tough Miss aan now the one to close that paddle face up back towards the court everything I said easier said than do if I get out there I’d look like a fool by all of these ladies so the consistency on the ball being.

Deep on the Baseline here is pretty impressive on both sides of the net that’s good oh Emily coming in on her own terms felt like she could really get that there moving forward towards the net good confidence a nice rip like that you know you got to follow it in CL out I like that not going right.

Back to the same shot mixing it up you know just to keep things fresh keep uh Genie honest two Z it’s not a bad way to start game two for acrian make it three now you calling timeout here I am I’m exhausted I would call it could be could be thought we saw aurman getting a string of points towards the end of the.

Game and now here in game two she’s getting string points way early on she’s feeling confident her Strokes are good and the slice wins that one she made her gamble on that backhand slice and it’s paying back it’s beautiful shot it’s a great shot to incorporate to break.

Rhythm oh I think that’s a first forehand down the line attempt from Emily aan she usually goes crosscourt but good attempt next time she’ll make that one oh that’s nice nice approach that must have felt so good from jie bashard finally being able to close out a point.

There at the net and on her forehand L solid on theion it’s our first quarterfinal of the day we have the number three seed Conor Garett five seed wow great Hustle the women’s game nice to see qual mat bring all the options to the table if.

You want to come out on top in a tournament like this nice return little rushed well played by aan she looking pretty smooth out there full full control now winner of this match will move on to play either Leia Jansen or Camila.

Zetti another instant classic in the making tough Miss serve there we go sure jie has these opportunities she’s setting up quite well just feeling a little rushed on the putaway 61 now aan breaking it open here in game two to that corner well so good wow generous calling the.

Serve out ball again though time for Genie bashard to put some points on the board and there’s one time to climb the ladder that’s a great approach see what she can do with it Amman to the corner and it’s out oh that was a.

Awesome Point that’s good pressure from Genie bashard I liked that point a lot it’s three seven now way to keep the ball in 47 now a timeout called by Emily arrian here in game two as Jeannie bashard gains momentum and closes in got a future forecast here brought to you by.

Carvana next up on this court we have V Hayden Patrick win versus is onic loohan yeah quarterfinal match it’s going to be epic yeah looking forward to that one so stick around guys we’ll be bring it to you here live from the LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka uh Hayden patriquin strict fire versus anik Lohan also strict fire his back end’s so.

Good that he’s a certified Lefty officient certified so looking forward to that one folks and looking forward to this one the game two getting a little interesting here is jeie bashard climbs back into the game I always like to see I always get excited on these timeouts to see how.

They play out see how beneficial they are let’s see what happens unfaced another point on the board two-point game here in game two Genie bashard to serve a little much the streak is over for now aeran looking to pick back up where she left off Genie takes a net oh and it’s.

Out 85 now acrian to serve 8 Aran takes the net the right decision but that pesky net getting in the way huh 34 Ines in the middle 36 inches on the sides Miss hit from acrian they make it look easy all day.

But it is not right she was uh doing pretty well with with her forehand crosscourt in game one hasn’t quite found it here in game two still has the lead Genie Capt her to one let’s see if she can pick up where she left off approaches the net big angle she’s back for it on the.

Run no another point on the board for Genie brash oh yeah another good approach that sliced drop from acrian into a roll very close without a replay I wouldn’t be able to make that.

Call9 now we have a 79 ball game game here in game two I tough Miss controlling the point well though that was the right place to put the ball yeah that’s that slice to jimie Bard’s backand has been helping Emily out here in this game too setting up points crunch time in that end game here.

That’s a nice return just got to get oh yeah and this time Genie finds her forehand and they almost gave her the net with that shot maybe a little more wind than anticipated two-point game serve to the forand swing to the back end acman with the counter it’s so good clutchy great composure getting to that ball taking.

Her time good placement no rush makes it look easy that’s nice doubles down on it as the paddle touches the kitchen as the paddle part of you if it touches the kitchen on that Bley it’s a fa and here we are Match Point Emily aan 107 it’s a good game good match and a.

Good win for Emily auran as well as Genie Bard I mean she’s very new to this game and I think honestly coming out of this game she’s got she’s she’s that much better yes yeah and she had a big win over Lauren stratman in the last uh tournament well two tournaments ago in North Carolina I mean she’s a great player um with a lot of tennis.

Thanks for joining us here Rob Cassidy with Michelle esel in the house ready to give you the live action here on grand stand court with a nice little battle in the making between Hayden patchin and onic Lan two pickle ball Staples household names ready to get St start Hayden Patrick hun in the navy blue and anik Lani in the burgundy just so you.

Guys know who’s who Hayden Patrick win from Yuka California 18 years old he wants to give a huge shout out to Franklin Florence and nesor his sponsors there you go representing well onic with the Ola paddle here we go folks Point number one game number one and on the board on.

Lohani probably one of my favorite righties just because he’s basically a lefty with that backand another easy point from onic so good so disciplined so committed to the game huge hands battle at the net is this the semi-finals this is the quarterfinals this is the.

Quarterfinals huge serve from Hayden Patrick oh such a good rip perfect drop oh and a tough Miss loved to the blueprint though love what he drew up there wow great passing shot from onic now this is interesting on a beautiful day like this just this.

Morning Hayden Patrick wiin defeated Ben John’s to get to this match what yeah now will that work I mean he’s been exposed today to the number one play in the game currently uh but I’m sure it took a lot to win that match and assuming that it was only a handful of minutes ago you know that might pay up a toll I mean it’s no matter what it’s.

Going to be taxing playing Ben John’s so onik uh needed to play Ryan elof which did go three 1210 in the third W defeated Ryan elof to be here in this match we got our first timeout as we really need to spread out that endurance to take care of business here here on it coming out firing winning Four Points under four.

Shots nice you can see this is the nice thing about being here you can see as the hidden Patrick takes that time out I can literally see a ladybug hanging out on the back of his shirt in great detail here right under his Franklin side that usually indicates.

Luck oh nice so good from onik that shot definitely staying in forcing Hayden to take one extra step Hayden did not Point onic yep the ladybug has flown away so the luck for Hayden is official wow oh but onic is too strong.

Beautiful passing shot and a strong lead here in game number one onik hitting two passing shots four winners at the Baseline oh a little much he’s better than that you can hear him talking to himself a little bit there I mean.

From what I’ve heard you want to do your best to keep that self talk as positive as possible oh good punch from onik really stretching Hayden out some of that frustration leaking out I’m telling you what I what I’m observing right now is just a taxed player from their previous match it must.

Have taken a lot to to have taken down the Ben Johns that is certainly a care year win Hayden Patrick been added to the small list of players who has defeated Ben John’s and you can see oh footb is not done let’s see if deep here start to take this mat.

back go ahead live your best life Anna could be a bestselling pickle ball action figure with with recoiling backhand action oh that’s so just wide it’s nice to see onik not playing for too long but really coming into his own here at the PPA tour.

Sure sure that’s all day Hayden’s first passing passing shot of the game maybe he needs to stay a little bit more at the Baseline so he could be the one passing big serve hey Henry uh we don’t have our monitor I was just wondering if maybe down the road we could get the monitor.

Just to see what you guys are seeing in whatever no rush oh and the control of the two-handed backhand angle just seeing those options when I’m teaching you know try to do my best to spread the game and teach pickle ball but when I’m teaching you like to have options options equals.

Lethality onik very lethal here dictating this match very well already at 10 here in game one Michelle esel is behind the scenes perhaps getting ready to sne you guys some some statistics gets a pedal marks it in for for game yeah uh game one onik wins it in.

Five serving possessions quick game getting the most uh getting the most I guess like that run on the second serving possession early on in the game so strong lead there gave him confidence to finish out um winning points all over the place winning over four shots under four shots I love it impressive impressive most points went at the.

Baseline from onic so five serve possessions that’s all it took yeah impressive thank you for that it’s pretty cool to that’s all it took sometimes we have games that have five serving possessions and like 30 serving possessions so it’s kind of interesting to see that oh jumping into game two here we.

Go ah the frustration from game one appearing to carry over at least into the first point for Hayden z z here gets a paddle on it ball is out I love it you can see when you see the elite athlet athletes first person I noticed this with was Riley Newman just basically every point that he loses he.

He evaluates the adjustments he could have made I love that a just miss from Big H Michelle you can take these guys what uh tips would you have for uh for Big H to uh bring himself in this match back into this match against Oni I’d just like to see him get in the groove a little bit more hitting a little bit.

More shots he’s coming up to the baseline or coming up to the non volley zone line kind of rushing um most points are usually W there in men’s singles but taking the time to come in would be awesome heavy dictation from onic getting that ball back on his side of the net oh nice and now we now we get to observe someone having some positive.

Selft talk working out those adjustments in his head everybody knows it’s a mental game anything you do it’s going to be mental this seems very comfortable out there see what he can do with this serve possession here unreal definitely a point of the match.

So far there’s nothing like a rare little hands battle in singles so much court and the guys just doing battle with the hands up the net like that on it coming out on top so many options big slap count by Big H seeing some light here for H that’s short for Hayden Patrick win if.

You’re just joining us he missed patrian didn’t really get the shot he wanted there but it was enough to to force Another Touch from onik and another point on the board Hayden’s kind of looking for a new ball here you can see checked the rotation both players would need to.

Agree for the ball to change unless there was an obvious defect that the referee would decide on defects you know a crack uh warp indentation things like that ball gets changed out they’re rocking the Vulcan ball which is chosen by the players because it plays the best fun fact great passing shot Hayden Patrick wi getting into his.

Groove finding the F oh yeah oh and a whole new player takes that point Hayden Patrick win has entered the building onik Lohan though what a stud definitely one for the calendar nice serve from H oh he’s back there’s the H we know in love oh but onic with a beautiful shot do not hit it.

To his backand oh my goodness short to the backand he’s just able to roll that effortlessly look out Conor Garnett third time I’ve seen that in this match awesome Point awesome Point onic Lani not going anywhere Yola sponsored player here we go nice ball ball from.

H he’s getting that second win that second you know burst of confidence that he needs to uh you know understand he knows he’s capable of it’s get that want that desire 32 battling back and forth oh and the passing shot is good I think he just looked right at me after that one let.

Let the world know Big H is in the house 4-2 now nice low trajectory sered there for another Point not exactly free but good curve oh oh and the Ernie angle is too much to handle ball back in the hands of the.

Onic lohani two5 here game two first to 11 win by two and an easy backhanded passing shot that’s it I’m calling 1800 onik Lani and uh I want to learn that backhand bad 3 five now nice Point construction by Hayden Patrick.

Quinn that’s great passing that’s great footwork and balance by onik great ball stagging but just countered by the anticipation of of Hayden Patrick wiin see if he can pick up where he left off get off that five here we go sure sure almost a placement attack as.

Opposed to you know using Pace pace is nothing without good placement another freebie first come on we’ve heard from Hayden little timeout called from onic see if he can use it to an advantage and as they take a break we’ll take a break here guys at the LA open.

Quick commercial break we’ll be right back I I’m using it right now baby all right put it to good use on it here we go another point on the board nice deep return from Hayden Patrick taking control of the.

Point onik looking to control his breathing moving into this next point 74 here game two and another Miss server return yeah you could definitely sense the heat Hayden Patrick is definitely firing it up bringing more intensity in this game starting off game number one a little slow on to the nine here looking to push.

For that game three start to wonder a little bit is there a better side Michelle H could be another timeout is called Smoke them while you got him onic into another timeout so interestingly enough we are here on Hayden’s seventh serving possession um getting a couple points each serving possession since it’s.

Fourth are slowly coming you got and this should be your all right and a quick timeout here we go 94 game two oh and a dirty rip backand of his own Hayden Patrick Quin angle let’s get haen haen in that contest Conor Garnet onik MH beautiful backand everyone everyone has has.

Gorgeous back hands here mixing up down the line crosscourt that is out one game of piece going into game three as patrian has found the energy somewhere to pull off game two game three will be nothing short of interesting awesome we have uh the viola La open presented by Deep vodka here game three.

This time is going to be brought to you by LifeTime and uh looks like these boys will make their Minor Adjustments looks like onyx’s tightening up the shoes a little bit Patrick Quinn guzzling down some water it’s always good to stay hydrated shout out to Preston VI who on the pigle ball.

Getaways was always reminding us to stay hydrated we love you Preston thanks for keeping us safe and healthy on the court got to stay hydrated water water water just got back from a getaways uh in Costa Rica might be why my voice is a little gone but happy to be here nonetheless these boys waste no time game three underway onic Lohan to.

Serve oh so many options going to that sideline feel like onic now needs to change it up maybe going to Hayden Patrick wi’s forehand a little bit more I mean I’d like to see it mixed up right now the patterns pretty clear for Hayden there’s that forehand ah onic finding the shot and.

Putting that volley away what I’m seeing these guys doing I they’re opening up Wide Open Spaces of Court yes but still going somewhere else they’re not taking the obvious option and it is working so well yeah hitting behind the opponent or making them forcing them moving to the other side um that’s a chess game here in singles is being able to play.

Anywhere on the court to the Baseline hitting up up at the net the mouse game cat and mouse game oh and a big strike right into the forehand of onik first point scored in this game three race to 11 win by two Hayden patrickw one zero in other news Rosco Bellamy de feating Tyson McGuffin 116.

118 I would call that an upset for sure Conor Garnett defeating Rafa hwit in three wow and the winner of this match will play the winner of Connor Garnett versus ya Martinez vich we are seeing some amazing matches here at the LA open this field is definitely getting.

Stronger the depth is outrageous amazing amazing amazing here we go oh he decided to play it hard to say if that was staying in or not I like the decision to play that ball as to as opposed to just kind of guessing whether that Ball’s going to stay in or.

Out when you don’t know you got to put your paddle on the ball oh you’re definitely seeing a lot of Mis Returns on our side of the Court here Hayden Patrick in missing with his return there we saw onik struggling a little bit in game two on this side there’s a second Mis return here of the S.

Out size could be a little could be a factor here it’s a quick 51 one and a 61 now onik did what he needed to do on the good side a strong display of frustration from Hayden patriquin hopefully he gets it out of his system it’s one six now lot of work to do big ladder to climb for patch quit hanik actually.

Looking for the ball say a strong home run they will most likely need to get a new ball as far as the rules of this game are concerned that would definitely uh constitute it technical destroying the ball for no reason or excommunicating the ball for no.

Reason is definitely not okay considering it is the game ball yeah we can see it’s out of frustration but but what I love to see is how anik just Easy Flow doesn’t let him bother him going to stay the course we’ll see what happens here and this uh side switch is it a factor let’s find out here the fact do the matter is anik did what he needed to.

Do on the quote unquote good side right as we’ve been kind of just observing all games have been won on that far side quick side out we’re deep in game three when did that happen Michelle after game one and game two oh I’m caught up now I’m freebie Free’s Galore.

Here two six goes for it into the white of the net onic looking to re regain pace and control of this game this match wow nice Point 72 now got to keep the hands dry Miss serve.

Wide in singles you do have to go for your serve there’s there’s no other way Taking Chances setting up the point right off the bat maybe Patrick is just racking up points what do we have here 72 no comes out on top what would you call that that’s a pancake that was a pancake.

Okay forand pancake shot flattening it out but some people would call it a semi Tomahawk oh semi like that too mhm semi it’s one of my favorite alternative rock bands no artistic off the net great shot now.

Let’s do her die time the climb is real Here We Go Again a Mis return on our near side here the rumors must be true is uh onik has been held to one point since the side switch oh what a rip from Patrick and too many options for the onic back.

In telling himself come on need to go through the ball reinforcing what just worked for him so he remembers it a lot of selft talk goes on in singles a lot love it no retakes control of the point but this is that execution there I feel like we’re in like round eight of a boxing.

Match right now around round seven round eight 37 another Point another Mis return serves are heavy goes for it and it’s out it’s tough CU that’s a spot that Hayden needs to hit but that’s also where onx backand lurks right so you can see Hayden’s trying to find how much exactly he needs to go for.

There whoa huge forehand down the line passing shot here giving onic another Point closer to this third game match another side out 48 nice the drop no too deep pump fake from hidden patch sun is beating down here.

Is 1:12 p.m. as the Rugrats would call it no Shadow time 48 oh an unsure call from onik the referee decides proclaims that he saw it in situation well handled another point on the board for patch doing exactly what he needs to do.

Here is grind this out it’s going to come down to it here inside out misses he’s got to make him play if that inside out clears the net play it off his paddle and win it with that next one again it’s always going to be easier said from where I am than than these two warriors on the.

Court casual serve Fierce backand forehand to the same spot well crafted fire it up finally off the eight 25-year-old anik Lani from Minneapolis Minnesota wants to give a huge shout out to his girlfriend Marne very cool very cool his agent at Peak pickle ball agency and Alex Newman who helped him out in the last match in.

The third game I’ve heard of that guy I would take advice from Alex Newman any day wow oh great shot from Patrick wi in a body bag off of the ref it happens a little rude hey but the ref was still watching the kitchen line that’s all that matters little timeout.

Action believe it was by Patrick wi there called his timeout some good battle coming right down to it that 6-1 start for onik yes Patrick and you know after the side switch able to settle in mhm get it done and now just comes down to the wire I mean can he fire back the 61 Onyx already scored more than one point here.

It’s it’s math anything is possible here game three they’re both fighting hard they’re both trying to figure things out love it digging deep here in the third game Let’s Get Back at It ref calls for the 15 seconds his player starting early five nine there it is followup and there it.

Is exactly what Patrick and needs to do to win this match that’s not an easy pattern to replicate very impressive tough ball ni as these boys battle again winner of this match will move on to play the winner of the Connor Garnett ya Martinez Vach match which will be another amazing.

Singles day match here at the LA open the slap it’s off the net huge crosscourt and there’s that lurking backand for the counter again singles a very lonely sport looking over to his Corner trying to find some encouragement 96 now awesome Point huge.

Point held to nine onik focused battling here we go 69ine Patrick wind Ser oh and another free not necessarily free I can’t call him free cuz that’s a great serve yeah these are huge serves and again on the near side you’re seeing a lot of Mis returns from both players starting to feel.

The very present tension here in this match there is definitely a sense of urgency going for the sideline option this time and missing unfortunately onik on the nine 96 97 excuse me Match Point Match Point Let’s see if on it could close it out here on his first match point of the game.

Oh beautifully shaped great battle between the two boys here Hayden Patrick Quinn awesome showing and congratulations to anik Lohan for moving on give him one more shout out to Alex Newman echoing echoing onx shout out of course that’s right that’s right takes the village to get these wins and uh they came out on top very nice very nice.

Open here we are in Fountain Valley California we’ve got Lindsay Newman serving in all black returning is Lacy Newman in the white shorts we’re here in game one that ball is out one Zer here Lacy schneeman near side Lindsay Newman to serve a big whack just out thank you guys for joining us here.

At the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka I’m Rob Cassidy here join with Michelle esel as these ladies do some singles battle we are here in round of 32 Lacy schneeman 27 years old out of Rondo Beach California Big Time MLP player oh yeah might have seen her and Lindy Newman in.

OG caller her as we started out the same time in professional pickle ball back in 2017 Believe It or Not folks she is pregnant with her third baby due in August huge congratulations to Lindsay Newman But Here We Go Lacy schan serve backand return oh seem to be missing wide here both players just missing those.

Sidelines yeah the trend here is we’re seeing that most points are ending below four shots see if they could get a rhythm and find some strategies here nice lob nice overhead already 52 in this game one and a big smack from Lacy schneeman looks like she’s got some goals today for that.

Podium I enjoy both of these ladies games one thing I enjoy about Lindsay Newman’s game is that you know she’s a competitor but she’s always just so bubbly and nice on the off on and off the court she’s always having a good time regardless unless she’s yelling at Riley about something you know but uh huge competitor but also.

Just here to enjoy life you know so here we go 2 six oh my goodness of course Lacy schneeman MLP champ you know to say the least started as an alternate that’s right remember those days I do and now here she is with the big with the big wigs quitting her job as a rocket scientist.

That’s right an engineer to pursue her career in pickle ball pretty cool choice for us I mean we’re glad to have her and another beautiful Drop volley on the backhand side from schneeman giving her another point Miss it’s warm out here that’s heating up that’s for.

Sure two7 goes for it great idea yeah I haven’t seen Lindsay take the risk on her down the line backhand shot so Lacy’s kind of camping out in that corner expecting that that hand crosscourt another.

Lob and another Smackdown by ly schneeman setting up the point beautifully getting Lindsay Newman out of position Lacy doing what she needs to do to get the the job done seems like she’s conserving her energy just a little bit here 9 92 here in game.

One it’s a spicy serve and it stays in welcome to gen 3 Yola pickle ball oh and a Mis return for a quick game one 112 Lacy schneeman taking that first one and we’re going to go ahead and take a break as the players take a break don’t go anywhere.

All right you guys welcome back to game number two Lacy schneeman serving out missing the point nice K easy put away by Lacy SCH Lacy specializing with her backhand volley she’s able to put that ball on the right spot each time yeah and this is Lacy’s first match of the day she is very fresh uh Lindsey Newman had to.

Defeat Carol Leonard uh which she did pretty handedly 114 114 nice it’s nice to see in the the singles bracket yeah we haven’t seen her in a singles bracket in quite a few years so it’s definitely a treat to year the Newman Clan they definitely have a unique style uh it’s enjoyable to watch unique stuff unique looks there’s that.

Big swing oh just out just wide Lindsay is adamant on getting lazy schne on this backand crosscourt a good shot from Lacy winner of this moves on to play the winner of the uh sherion Ricardo L Kong two girls I haven’t seen play just yet I definitely enjoy seeing new players.

Out here in the circuit it’s exciting new games new faces it’s a good ball from Lacy 4- Z here in game two nice deep return he’s really whacking at it so Michelle do you use the same paddle for singles that you do for doubles I actually don’t I like sticking with one paddle and.

Adjusting according to what game is coming so you do use the same paddle first singles as you do for yes interesting yeah nice do you I think it’s a good idea but also you know sometimes a single paddle with a little more weight might help you do some of the work for you um there’s not too many players out there that aren’t putting.

Weight on their padal you know right and you know generally the more weight you put on it the the less you have to do with your body would you AG so you feel like there’s more penetration on the ball with more weight I would say so nice oh there’s a good spot there you go.

Oh oh yeah oh okay she’s there oh nice play by she might have saved her on that one it’s hard to say hard to tell that’s a great Point that’s a great lindsy Newman Point yes it is working the point working it more of a submission as opposed to a knockout blow nice and low on that return and it.

Pays in dividends what a return and the drop volley to follow up that return little fun banter between the players 7 Zer here uh-huh super smart of lacy to find Lindsay Newman staying back at the Baseline I think that’s a good takeaway.

From this match you know you don’t always have to keep them back or you know if you’re on the Baseline just to give the ball right back to them uh placing the ball elsewhere can also be a good idea as long as you have it as an option in your game lyan’s dad and aunt here in the audience watching she wanted to give a.

Huge shout out to them for all their support and encouragement through their through her pickle ball career oh well done by Lindsay Newman see if she can put a couple together here gain some momentum 18 on the board First Step oh that was nice all is.

Out special shout out to Cindy Lightner the ref of this match California local here in Orange County yeah good to have her here on grand stand she’s been on Center Court Mor of the morning that’s right fine referee oh that was awesome good job and the checkmate nice deep return but good control from.

Lacy schan and we have our first match point here in this match and a smoking down the line forehand shot for the match great work by Lacy schneeman she’s moving on to the round of 16 great effort by Lindsay Newman.

You what do you think rob you know call it a day I think Lea schneeman is in the runs race uh you know for the podium to say the least maybe even Championship Sunday the way she’s looking that was her first game of the day she’s looking fresh and loose and uh seems like she’s very familiar with that Yola gen 3 already and she’s wielding it well so.

Looking forward to more of her doing great things today beautiful that’s going to do it here for our ladies singles match here women’s singles thank you guys for joining us here at the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka uh Michelle any last thoughts yeah I mean continue watching these great games we see a lot of new.

and we are back here at the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka men’s singles happening right now here on grand stand Court Rosco Bellamy versus Ryan Sherry in the house game one here we go Bellamy in the white to serve side out this is a quarterfinal.

Match both men defeating some big players in order to get here so they are fighting and they both won it so let’s see how this folds out here first Blood struck by Ryan Sherry one Zer oh he puts a badle on yeah I thought that ball was going to sail along but Sherry saves Bellamy there stick to the.

Game plan trust yourself right that’s right good passing shot from Rosco that forehand down the line I saw the smoke coming off of his paddles speaking of Pal’s got that carbon head pedal that’s right Brian Sherry rocking the proxr today you can see it nice and weighted.

Up big serve gets nice and low for that passing shot who did the Sher bear take down today wow sh Sherry took down Julian Arnold in two games 114 11 Siri and August uh sorry a Aug auga in three games 117 118 21 it’s good players and another forehand down the line by Rosco.

Bellamy nice we have our head referee s Choy Moy taking control of this match one of my favorite excuse me one of the best referees we got he’s not one of my oh good try from the share bear and Rosco defeating a qualifier Morgan shepher bir in two then beating Travis brettm in three games 119 118 113.

And finally defeating Tyson McGuffin in the last round in two 116 118 sherar takes the net oh dishes it to the forehand and that big backhand crosscourt from Rosco timeout call by Ryan Sherry yeah one of the things that I noticed right away from Rosco Bellamy is just his preparation and getting to the ball is.

So early that he can decide wherever he wants to hit the ball um that’s something that Sher has to be a little bit cautious about maybe moving him just an extra inch um those big spots on the court are not enough against Rosco belly so he’s got to push really hard uh really find his shots right and you know fairly new to relatively new to the game.

Only been around about a year or so a little more than a year yes rasco Bell and me really taken to the game nicely and I honest we I’ve shared some wck games with him played some matches against him he’s great person to have around the court well yeah coming from UCLA tennis he played all four years um a local here Bell Canyon California uh.

Definitely a player to watch I would say yeah and speaking of players to watch his mother yes right um yeah his mom Senior Pro Bethany Bellamy amazing amazing senior player she just came back from a a NE injury so um you’ll see her in the senior pro circuit as well yeah doing a lot of good things on the Senior Pro.

Tour heavy heavy serve and that is out good time out by sherbear and you can see the focus in his eyes Shar bear sponsored by Legacy Pro Sports which is a company that he’s founded helping Elite athletes uh through their retirement and what is beyond after being an elite player of.

Any sport so that’s right pretty cool for Sher bear to to do that for them and to provide that service Legacy Pro Sports let’s go heavy serve and there he is there’s the Sher bear showing up fun fact I’m going to say it go ahead Ryan Sherry taught Ben John’s a lot of what he originally learned about singles.

I love it huge snack oh follows it up oh he plays the ball honorable call he could have called that out it could have gone either way yes he had a better look than me so honorable play from Ryan Sherry impressive to see him so late in the draw and great to see it you know.

What I mean I mean a legend of the of the game if you will yeah I’ll never forget his first PPA win singles in North Carolina a couple years ago you can never under underestimate him he is out there he’s fired up and he is going to give you a battle every time oh huge point from both sides rasco coming out on top that crosscourt backhand that.

He’s wielding right now is kind of taking control of the game it Isco takes theet first oh sherar is staying alive that whole point but couldn’t quite get that forehand to stay in goes wide 83 game one in these non-progressive draw tournaments these are long.

Days long days the men started at 9:00 a.m. women started at 11: it is definitely a battle of the fit fittest it’s a good server turn you could tell right on that server turn there was going to be trouble for Rosco all right time to put some points on the board for the share.

Bear too much feel like Rosco is getting taller over the course of this of this match that’s what I felt too nice also nice that long stride it’s just so hard to pass him I wonder if Sher Bears is considering maybe a little cat and mouse game by.

Dropping some balls in the kitchen nice it’s a good shot by by Sherry another thing I I’m noticing is that Rosco is missing a little bit more on his forehand side maybe that’s something that sherbear could consider oh all right another game point for Rosco here.

103 to the backand and the first time down the sideline is going to get it game one in the books for Rosco Bellamy time to make some adjustments you can tell by the look on Ryan Sherry’s face that this match is very not over no it is not and remember um our little theme throughout the day is this uh near side has been a challenge.

Um for most of the players losing on this near side of the Court um win could be a factor but let’s see let’s see how this plays out in game number two rasco Bellamy another one of those uh youthful players that’s been butting in the work yes you know while I might be watching too many sitcoms he’s out there you know.

Practicing his crosscourt backand those do those sitcoms some of them they do have a nice little flare to them don’t they we’re waiting for that pickle ball sitcom that’s right it’s okay I’ve only written two episodes but as soon as I get to six we’ll put it out there okay nice s Choy Moy in the center of.

The Court keeping good track of this match again you guys if you’re just tuning in we’re here in the quarterfinals the winner of this match will move on to the semifinals uh playing against either feder Rico sta route or Quang feder Rico is up 11286.

So if he stays stays in it fedo might go to the semis and play the winner of this game here nice we got a shirt change from Ryan Sherry I love that oh I love that it’s like a fresh startart forget game number one and move on to game number two with a fresh look Ryan Sherry on the far side to serve game two underway here we.

Go rasco moving very well covering the entire court making it look like a smaller than pickle ball court nice deep return from Sherry that can slice oh yeah bringing him up oh oh I was hoping he would play a little bit more cat and mouse there as soon as Ryan Sherry brought Rosco belly up to the kitchen.

Line nice and focused good composure rasco Bellamy on a mission today similar to that Lacy schneeman vibe that we had earlier perhaps making his run towards that Podium as well see what Ryan Sherry has to say about that oo just WI game of inches if that’s in right there turn the.

Whole match around and that’s the pressure that Rosco belly is putting on Ryan Sherry uh Ryan Sherry feels like he has to have these perfect passing shots and he’s just missing just wide so Ryan Sherry trying to find- tune his his Strokes two Z bellam me to serve nice deep return by Sherry and a missed forand from Rosco.

Bellamy Bellamy’s got some uh supporters in the crowd his mother to name one of them o again a Miss by Ryan Sherry just out trying to find that passing shot it’s that reach that forces him to maybe go for a little much it’s tough that he might have to concede to make that shot play off of Bellamy’s paddle into the.

Next one huge swing out nice serve Cherry looking fresh oh able to hold Sher at Bay here two there it is and that is out I like Ryan Sherry’s return down the middle he’s done that a few times on the.

Side out and has been successful it takes away the angles from the opponent when returning down the middle of the court so look to see that a little bit more takes away a lot from Rosco Bellamy hopefully he could find something on his serve heavy talked about a doubles versus singles.

Paddle a little bit earlier I feel like I’m not seeing enough pop off the paddle for Sherry to be executing the things that he’d like to be doing oh that’s a good approach the counter oh too cute again he has the right idea just when you’re playing against a six foot something guy right.

Your spots feel so much smaller sure similar similar to langang yung’s uh serve uh you can hear the the grunt if you will that exertion that that vocal exertion from Bellamy going for that shot I think it’s something that home you could give a try to get consistent on that.

Strike it does definitely help with timing yeah timing very important Rosco Bellamy getting a rhythm here in game number two taking the lead here 6-0 oh and then miss serve but again like we were talking about serving you know going for the serve taking the first strike and.

Really owning it really capitalizing on it it’s very important part of the singles game for sure 06 looking to get on the board here there’s a good spot let’s see if Sher could continue that accurate passing shot he’s been trying to find it in game one and two.

Ah good exchange great composure from Bellamy he’s not breathing heavy and I got to say you look at this kid up close he could be on the calendar too tell you what he could be June June July and August W all right maybe we’ll save August but June and July.

Definitely oh Miss hit returned by Ryan Sher giving Rosco Bellamy another point it’s a nice return sure sure textbook stuff from Rosco Bellamy short serve mix up had a bad time for it didn’t win him the point but you can.

Expect down the road that that will reward him in the future woo there there it is a forhand crosscourt winner passing shot Ryan Sher trying to pump himself up closing the Gap 82 here we go finding a little momentum tough Miss all right looking to get that serve back.

Bellamy Looking to put it in the books no no timeout called from the Sher bear do see him trying to breathe over there which I do like oh that’s a good back hand ah Bellamy is everywhere Match Point here heavy heavy takes it back another Match Point here for Rosco.

Bellamy moving on to play Federico stack stre if he gets it here let’s take a look heavy serve heavy return and that pattern gets him the match great display by both players awesome match Rosco Bellamy moving on big day for Rosco Bellamy he has taken down some big names and playing against another.

One absolutely look forward to continuing to watch his race towards the podium today or that Championship Sunday even and that being said another huge shout out to Ryan Sherry for an impressive day of singles yet again uh again founder of Legacy Pro Sports which is a company that assists former NFL and MLB players with disability benefits.

Court Ro Cassidy here with Michelle esel here at the violia LA open presented by Deep Eddie vodka folks thank you guys for joining us around the world it is a pleasure to give you guys the best seat at the house here we have two women getting ready to do battle on this court Emily acrian versus Leia Jansen getting ready to get started thank you for.

Tuning in yeah we saw Emily arrian here earlier today playing against Genie Bashar defeating her in straight games and Leia Jensen uh in the round of 32 beating Camila zelli in straight games coming off of a championship in Houston unreal mhm o okay going to have to find it.

First point scored here Leia Jansen serving one Z it’s a nice serve it’s a nice return tough Miss just going to have to shake it off flex it out and tell that ball what to do that’s right and as we saw earlier Emily Akerman is kind of a rhythmic player the more balls in play the more.

She’s able to find find what works for her so getting into a rally would be good at the Baseline and finding some adjustments throughout the game nice exchange here and that’s going to be out it’s a long day of singles as we approach 2:30 p.m. here on the West Coast these L started at 11: a.m. today.

I believe that’s right of course getting here earlier than that to warm up and whatnot long days long days oh wow oh and yes super smart via Jenson finding the furthest spot on the court that she could H to for tole finding the exact same spot this.

Time hitting the net and trickling in prop for getting to that ball getting a paddle on it she’s like hey I just saw that I know where you’re going that’s fair that’s fair right I looking to get on board on the board here 04 Jansen is striking that ball well one of our head sponsors here is.

The paddle that Leia Jansen is wielding that Yola paddle gen 3 just came out that ball just skid off the line causing Leia to hit a unforced error Leia Jansen plays a very focused game she’s here to get a job done I like that 04 such a return you mentioned the word timing.

Earlier Michelle I feel like Leia has some really strong timing right now which is giving her returns just great depth great Pace what are some things that people can do at home to uh help with their timeing drill drill drill drill drill drill as much as they can these shots just don’t happen.

Overnight oh tough shot by Leah but just hitting the ball and finding new things out just by repetition wow and with that forehand crosscourt winner Emily acman calls a timeout Leia Jensen with a 60 lead not a bad way to start the game no not at all little cushion mhm keep 11.

Win by two and with again Leia coming off a title from Houston I feel like she’s had so much more confidence and she’s just flowing out there conversing with her coach I love to see that more and more Leia Jensen has a coach that she trusts one that provides excellent information excellent knowledge and you can see it you know.

Her using it to Advantage to be successful out there it’s very nice very nice to see it’s where the game’s going yes two time one time out all right 6-0 Emily aan looking to uh take that serve back here we go it’s deep it’s good these ladies are hitting the.

Baselines interesting and there it is great blueprint on that one Emily arit again as I mentioned her taking the time to construct a point and find an opportunity in that case her coming up to the net and hitting a beautiful Drop volley love it Leo with a drop.

Volley yes put
