Thank you ml play is an Innovative gameplay format that is completely unique to Major League pickleball it doubles down on the team aspect of MLP competitions ammo play format starts with women's doubles followed by men's doubles and ending with two mixed doubles games this unique dynamic means that teamwork is just as.

Important as speed or technique on the court and within the community of the league bringing all players regardless of their background or gender here to MLP for Columbus Ohio is the stage for the third and final meeting of MLP this season Dominic Catalano alongside me is Chad Edwards for an exciting weekend of.

Major League pickleball gonna be a fun one Chad and we got a lot of new faces on some teams with some trades some drops some pickups what are you looking as far as trades that happen between Newport and now that are going to affect this weekend well I think we're gonna see boqk and the ranches kind of continue uh the success they had in at.

Least Newport boqk was strong and awesome as well they're the two teams that really didn't have all of change but with all of those those drops those drops the changes bringing in it's going to be interesting to see they haven't had a whole lot of time to work together as a team whether those changes are really going to take as big of effect as.

As potentially they could be on paper it all comes down to your team camaraderie and and how you mesh uh in this team event and speaking of that camaraderie Chad who are two or three teams that you think have a real shot to win this weekend well I think blqk and ranchers are going in as as the two favorites right the the two previous winners blqk.

In Austin ranches in Newport Beach um I'm going to say a potential good trade was with the hot eights bringing in in Yates the kind of X Factor in that one is is how well Sierra gate and leech is going to mesh into that team as well so I think if there's a good.

Um Team closeness with that one I think they're potentially the third team that's gonna maybe jump up and and put some pressure on on some of these guys well these teams and with that we had some very exciting and big news you know we had LeBron James coming on he's getting a team for 2023 with Kevin Love and Draymond Green and then we had a.

Huge announcement come this week Kim clysters and Tom Brady picking up a team for 2023. Chad how exciting is that for you I mean you know I grew up watching clusters um you know it just happened at the time that she was with Leighton Hewitt so everything you know was was Australia was because he's he's our boy but.

Um I think you know the the hype we're definitely seeing these really big new owners coming in obviously Tom Brady having that big big name and that that huge following well that is that is absolutely huge news Tom Brady Kim clysters one of the new owners of the expansions teams for 20 23. we're going to take a quick commercial break when we.

Edwards we got a good one for you to start off blqk taking on the jackrabbits and as always it's women's doubles to start off but Chad we got a little breakdown here of blqk and the jackrabbits on paper it's all blqk what do the jackrabbits need to do to answer here in this women's doubles match well this is a.

Completely new looking jackrabbits uh Maggie brasha the only only one that was the there from Newport Beach so um you know like we talked about earlier it's going to be interesting to see how well these teams mesh I think with with Maggie and and Vivian I don't think there's going to be any issues as far as them meshing.

Um you know Vivian pretty much seems to play well with everybody gets along with everybody so I think for blqk um Paris had some injuries in Newport so that kind of hindered them a little bit she's being back she's been playing well so we're probably going to see a similar team to what we saw in Austin and they.

Were extremely dominant in Austin and just to give you guys a stack this season in Newport and Austin 35 of the 46 wins in women's doubles went on to win the match so that's how important this women's doubles match is here wow.

Back check got a huge fire fight and that's how we're gonna start Columbus okay let's go all right Maggie Brash has been playing well the the last few weeks as well so this is going to be a really fast-paced uh match up here I think well that's a good start here for the jackrabbits as they jump out to a quick 2-0 lead.

On poqk and good Ball by tarashenko keeping David back now it I think you know David's first ball was a good driver like the same brashy kind of step over and take that ball and when Tara shanko tried to push it back oh good hands there but just a little too much of Paris Todd there and all.

Square here too early in this game to 21. a little miscommunication in the middle Chad can't have that here now and that's why you run into having a partner that you don't play with a whole lot they're still trying to figure out hey early on those middle balls or or catching who's moving.

Oh good leave and good talk from tarashenko that's great partner communication between the two early on yeah if I am brasha I am getting away from the backing of tarashenko it is lethal and one of the best in the game yeah and she had so much spin with the with the slice backhand that's she wants you to play that game you can't play.

Into her strength right there go back through the middle a little bit behind her with the forehand don't stay in the backhand cross-court I think a little it's changed her mind in Paris Todd almost looks like she was gonna rip the two-hander and then pulled that second hand off one for a date oh nice pickup by David didn't try to do.

A whole lot with that Paris added added a ton of spin she just stayed low was a little lucky catching the net foreign a counter from Vivian David you think she was ready there Chad for that speed up I think I think everybody in he knew Paris was going to speed that ball up Maggie kind of floated it that's.

Definitely a ball that's going to get sped so excellent counter-attack by Vivian David not forced air there from Vivian David and those of you guys new to MLP having seen his rally scoring so these games go pretty quick um all mistakes I mean all unforced errors they all matter.

And are so crucial with the rally scoring that's a great adjustment from broshin you're not in your head Chad you saw it too go ahead you know I so we saw the first couple of points so trying to go wide cross courts with with both Paris and Arena but now they've switched it up they've taken those middle balls and.

That's the weakness for blqk on for both Todd and tarashenko is that middle ball that gets a little bit deeper now it's giving them opportunities to to do something more with the ball rather than just fight off that tough cross-core nice gift from Todd there off the tape and ready for it is Brash on David and they take a one point lead here.

Brush and David are really moving the ball well in the kitchen moving both around well at the kitchen line they're keeping Todd and tarashenko off balance and that's really good to see how quick they made that adjustment from the early points tarashenko calling that ball wide before the Paris tied around the post.

A little like Adam Stone stepping in here I like it almost being team captain here see if they want to challenge that Stone conferring with both brasha and David whether or not it's worth it to use this and they deem it is so we're gonna have a challenge here our first of the.

Weekend on the ball on the sideline Ron ponder over here in the corner is our video review replay referee I mean it's pretty close uh when she hit that ball I thought it was going to be out but again we're we're in if we would down the sideline there it'd be easier for us to see yeah we're tucked in a corner here so it's a little hard for us.

To see foreign so tight one here early Chad jackrabbit's looking very good I like the combination of Vivian David and Maggie brasha here early what are you seeing that they're doing well against tarashenko and Todd here early on to stay in this yeah well they.

Like we said a little bit when they went on this this run is that they switched up trying to stay in the the wide Cross Court dink they started pushing balls into the middle and it wasn't allowing tarashenko and Todd to create that sharper angle out so now they're getting balls that they can move around more.

Oh we just saw a quick replay and after review The Cult did stand so Tara schenko's call of out does stand and we are all tied here at seven wow great work from Terry schenko and Todd what were I mean they were pinned at the Baseline chat for about eight to ten shots and then worked their way back up.

Yeah and that's that's just making them hit one mobile keep putting it back until you can finally get that ball back into the kitchen Todd was able to get that ball down that's what brought them back up wow deadly backhand from tarashenko again if I am brasha and David I'm avoiding.

That at all costs I like the ball out there but you can't do it while she's set go that middle ball bring her in oh thank you a little love off the tape for Paris Todd and they are one point away from an end change here's what change ends at 11 in this game to 21. what wow what work from tarashenko and.

Todd just to stay in this point and then causing the unforced air from Russia and we will change ends here ends here with BL K jumping out to a four-point lead what was the difference right there it was after that challenge we went 7-7 blqk jumps up on a 4-0 run there what was the difference well David and Brusha were keeping control of of.

The points that were keeping Todd and tarashenko back but again they boqk was just staying in that point they were keeping the bullet the polls weren't super high so you're you're trying to be in a great you're trying to be aggressive with a ball that's just a little bit above the net so once you're in that aggressive mode.

And that one that ball eventually does drop down now you try to take that same ball and you're and you're hitting it in the net and those that's where we saw brusher right there to to give them the 11th point to switch ends tarashenko's ball had so much spin on it when it came down she's expecting it to bounce up takes that same swing and it goes.

Straight to the net well 4-0 run here for blqk tereshinko and Todd taking control of this game to 21. Sarah schenko to serve I don't like to see Todd Drive that ball as a two-hander that was about four feet inside the Baseline she's got such a.

Good drive I want to see her attack that ball wow what a drop from brasha and then she takes advantage Chad and just charges up that kitchen line yeah and she did an excellent job of being aggressive even while she was on the run there didn't get too big with a swing but attacked straight down at Todd.

Todd gives one back Todd going a little slippery down that line right there with the forehand prashan David answer after the end change they get two then blqk slows that down and regains a three-point lead David trying to go scorpion right there get nice and low and get on top of that.

But a good spot from tarshenko yeah and tarashenko saw how early David went to that forehand so then she came back across left shoulder and that's what caused David to try to hit that scorpion tough tough to do once that ball Gets behind you with a ball that she's looking for right.

There just gets a little too big biggest lead of the match here at five that's that middle ball again it's that's given Todd and tarashenko a little bit of troubles I think David and Russia needs to go back to that slow slow the game down a little bit.

Again I'm loving how brush is reading her own thirds yeah they're a good third so she's attacking that fifth ball she's done it about three times as much see if she can keep this up she decides to drive the third that time tarashenko keeps her back.

Yeah I mean Vivian David just doing everything she can to stay in this point and then just goes opposite and almost a little in between ball for Todd there Chad yeah and she did David did a good job of taking the pace off of that one when you get in those firefights and then all of a sudden you get that slow.

Ball it's hard to make that adjustment so quickly a big winner there from Vivian David and Adam Stone and Hunter Johnson loving all of it on the sidelines back within two that point right there that's set up on the tarashinko return she really hit that return and put a lot of pressure on.

David I like the change of pace on taroshenko's return there oh okay he brought just sitting on that forehand in the middle well she made her adjustment from the last beforehand that she missed into the net it was a good attack from tarashenko but brush is sitting there just ready for.

That counter and Todd answers right there in the middle nice short compact swing team oh nice little forehand flick in the middle from tarashenko for the winner and she disguised that really well made it look like she was going to go.

Back with a dink Cross Court and then just flick the wrist taking that ball out through the middle causing the time out here from the jackrabbits down four you got Johnson and stone up coaching up their ladies they know everybody knows how important this women's doubles matchup is and Chad we talked and hit on it a little bit.

Earlier 35 of the 46 times that the women win the team goes on to win that match so we talk about the importance of this women's doubles match it is very important well it's you you get off on that you win that first one now there's not as much pressure on the next three because all you got to look at hey I've.

Just got to win one more out of these next three right and then you know I go to a dream breaker and I fight again for that one but if you're if you're going going into it down one and then hey I gotta take two out of the next three it's a it's an uphill battle and now talking about a dream breaker if these two teams go to a dream breaker both of.

These teams in in Newport and Austin between the two of them have only gone to one dream breaker each so not a lot of experience in the dream breaker on either one of these teams I think you know for the blqk side of it they were they were so dominant in Austin and and Newport Beach that they.

Really want Push To The Dream breaker um we're already seeing a good change within the the jackrabbits being more competitive um you know so it was kind of two extremes of the spectrum there as far as why did they only have one dream breaker each.

Pull from her shoe tops from Paris Todd right there on the backhand yeah that was only a couple of inches off of the ground she did an excellent job getting the paddlehead underneath it just that quick roll strong wrist reset from tereschenko all of a sudden after the timeout Paris.

Todd is feeling it and now in this MLP format the LQK has gotten to 20. so now they will freeze their score and the only time they can score and end this is on their serve so they have an opportunity here foreign and the winner and blqk will take the first point here in women's doubles.

by a score of 21 to 14 so they win by seven Chad what was the Difference Maker yeah I think blqk when they're aggressive they're they're hard to stop and we saw the last few points that taroshenko with the flick to end it Todd with the with the roll the point before.

If they are trying to stay in a slower Pace match then that's not their game plan that's not their style that they can play in so for them going out each time they took a Time timeout they came back and they were more aggressive all right we're gonna go go right to Cameron Irwin on court Irina you guys had the momentum most of.

The match but they were close behind creeping in how were you able to close that out I was just pumping up my partner and uh staying focused and energetic myself obviously playing the very first match the opening round of MLP is a little bit nerve-wracking but uh you know it's very nice to get through the nerves and play well in the.

First match let's go black and you weren't able to compete with your team in the final back in Newport how important are you and how happy are you to be competing with your team again just to have our team I mean everyone's so supportive and we just absolutely love each other and I feel like we're a family so I'm very hungry to be back and.

I'm excited and takes the pressure off the guys for the first win so let's go black back to you guys it's hard to find supplements that work foreign no thank you.

Matchup of the day the jackrabbits taking on blqk women's doubles is already done and over with blqk coming out on top 21-14 over the jackrabbits now it's all about the men here blqk thrown out Rafa Hewitt and Zayn navratil the jackrabbits will counter with Adam Stone and Hunter Johnson.

Cameron Blackwood was Courtside talking with tarashenko and Paris Todd and the importance of you know that that getting on the board first with women's doubles now in men's doubles it's not a must win for the jackrabbits but it is very important Chad um I with how well boqk has been playing and how well the mixed doubles teams.

Have done as well I almost say that this is a must win for for jackrabbits so it's going to be a good test for for stone and and Johnson here Stone was in the first two MLPs with with mad drops but he wasn't able to play so you know we're looking at win probability here Head to Head boqk you know 77 23 over the jackrabbits.

It's it's going to be interesting to see how this one this one plays out oh and off the tape hunter Johnson gets a little piece of Rafa Hewitt and then Hewitt walks up and slides his paddle along the along the net and stares down Johnson.

Yo Hugh is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet off the court but on the court he is like a straight out animal he he plays so so fired up and I know when probability was at 77 for blqk but I don't mind and I kind of like this Adam Stone Hunter Johnson team here one.

Adam Stone coming off a little bit of an injury he's got a little bounce to his step early though I like seeing that I I will say these weather conditions favor Stone more so than than if we're somewhere that's hot and humid uh but he's used to playing the right right hand side he all played with decal a lot so he's used to staying in those points.

Making his chances with the or his opportunities with the with the counter attacks and then Johnson with that two-hand backhand speed up good speed up by Stone right there into the body of navratul I think that's the that's the style these guys have to go they've got to and I think we saw it in Newport when when.

There was some um when boqk was was pressed a couple of times navratul and Hewitt if they are aggressive like that then they're gonna come out on top but where they kind of fell behind a few times is when their opponents pulled the.

Trigger before them because navital and Hewitt are always looking for that speed up they're not necessarily looking for that counter attack or that that reset yep great patience there from Johnson and stone waiting for that right moment and.

Then Johnson using his length to reach in and speed that up yeah and they were being tested well there with the ball movement from blqk spreading them out wide but if they can stay within those points and keep that ball down they've got a really good shot as.

Soon as he pulls the trigger here I think he wanted to pull it back he knew it wasn't the right decision you look at his face right there it was a half trigger pull yeah it was uh this one's not coming out of the gun fast enough that ball is out over the bleachers here and nice backhand pull there from Zane.

Navratil y foreign and he's fired up two here early Chad big overhead yeah he's he's gonna feed off of off of that aggressive play a little little.

Jump he was trying to help the ball get over the net Mavericks Hill ready for the speed up right there from Stone Dan stone stone knows that was the wrong time again that's a kind of it's It's a half committed speed up right there we used to be that ball up you either got.

To be fully committed or you stay stay patient within there thank you so that's the third time I've seen Stone speed up to navratil and navratil just punish it Adam's gotta learn and take that you know mental note and say I just gotta stop doing that right now well and he.

Had one speed up on on average so early went left shoulder all the other ones since then have been more extension or they've been to the forehand side so he's got to choose that spot yeah and stone pulling over and pinching middle right there and Hewitt just ended up going behind him soft.

Yeah a little change change of pace there's not a whole lot you can do with that one because if if you don't cover middle is going to pull the trigger he's going to rip it you cut the middle and he did an excellent job of slowing it down but it was a better speed up from Stone on navratil hit that that left shoulder.

Again to start it they just couldn't finish it challenge a little bit of yeah call with sportsmanship going coal was out on the lob from Stone I don't mind it no Challenge from jackrabbits.

Oh nice pull right at the body there from navratil on Adam Stone and it is a 10-6 lead here for blqk in control but in rally scoring can't give away points like that because that is a point for stone and Johnson in the jackrabbits don't want to give them any momentum yeah I I don't mind that speed up from.

Hewitt I think it's a good ball to speed up but once you get up a couple of points that you know it's like you said you you can't give away those easy points because with rally scoring it just comes back so quickly oh again blqk right time to be speeding that ball up and they will take the lead here do Hewitt and navratil and again on.

This unchanged shed what is the Difference Maker here well actually let's go with what do the jackrabbits need to do to kind of change their momentum and get it back on their side yeah the the first few points uh we saw the jackrabbits get a get a few speed UPS on on navratul and and Hewitt um but then they tried to do it too much.

So now they've got to move the ball around a little bit more anticipate that they're going to get both set up at them as well but choose those right choose the the right balls we're gonna throw it down to Cameron blackwood's sideline give us a little bit more insight into uh this end change thank you.

I agree with what you're saying there Chad that you can already see the difference right now between the men's and women's doubles here the guys are going to sit at the kitchen and really work the point there's going to be a lot more shots here versus the women who will start a fire fight a lot earlier but the jackrabbits have to do is they.

Have to slow this back down when they were getting in those 10 15 20 dink rallies they were winning those points that's how they were able to get points on the board they need to get back to that work the ball and then pick their moment don't try and speed it up because they're losing though so get back into the Rhythm that got you those points in.

The beginning and and get some points back on the board well that is Cameron Blackwood sideline for us thank you Cam and she is right Chad you do see the women will tend to get into those firefights a lot quicker the gentleman will slow the ball down elongate those points and that's exactly what you're seeing here in this first half of men's.

Doubles foreign there from Johnson almost looked like he was gonna pull the trigger on that little forehand right there he doesn't almost look like a it shocked Johnson for a second yeah good change good change of pace and that's.

If you can disguise those balls or make every shot kind of look similar between when you're going soft with a dink or when you do that quick speed up now it's hard to anticipate on on what you're going to do so if if you're not sitting in and expecting that ball to come hard every single time you're going to get caught on the speed up.

Good stepping in in front of navratil to take that forehand but that's the difference right there with the Lefty righty it's both forehands in the middle so Naruto will give that up who has a longer range yeah that's what it comes down to in that one drop there from navratil forces a little bit of a high fourth from Johnson but.

Never tell off the tape inside out that's a really good fourth ball from navratul right there the the drive by Johnson wasn't the best but it was a decent Ball but never too didn't try to do too much with it but put it back with Pace to keep Johnson off balance when he tried to hit that fifth.

Good spot there from Stone getting hewed off balance but Johnson can't take advantage and it's going to be a time out here from the jackrabbits and it seems like blqk is in control here Chad what does blqk doing on the counter on the opposite side of the jackrabbits to gain this lead and put them in control here they're they're.

Staying clean right now yo fewer errors uh toward this this second half of this this match where we saw early on Stone and Johnson not too many errors going in there Johnson you know jumping up with with three errors here in the last few points um this is Johnson's first MLP so when you start thinking about hey we're rally.

Scoring these unforced errors mean even more in this situation now you start putting more pressure uh on yourself so Hewitt and navratil really feeding off of that pressure that that stone and Johnson a feeling right now now as the errors creep into their game so after the timeout mavericksville will be serving.

Up by six oh my God it's a clean Ace on the spin serve there from never till God look at how that's that ball just takes a left turn on Johnson and he couldn't do anything about it even even Hewitt looked over his like oh my gosh good hands there from Hunter Johnson a much needed side out for him and Adam.

Stone 10 16. yeah it never still speeds it up it's a tough ball to speed up one and two Johnson run it really well because we're on a perfect angle Johnson slid over to cover that it was going to be covered yeah Stone was sliding to the line as well so.

Both Johnson and stone read that speed up oh and Adam Stone looking like the Adam Stone of old stepping into the middle and putting that ball away with the backhand I like the aggressiveness and a good read from Adam Stone I like the concentration from Johnson right there because Hewitt Clips a tape.

Right there and he's able to keep his concentration and they are back within three yeah I mean now is the time kind of hey let's let's take some chances and and be a little bit more aggressive make them stop us you no one Johnson and stone gaining a little.

Momentum here maybe one more Point here and blqk may call a timeout they're gonna try and Ride This Out Here yeah all right and they're right on cue blqk drops the paddles they're gonna call timeout the big two-handed backhand from Hunter Johnson and all the momentum now on the jackrabbit side what change.

For them Chad they they became aggressive they they went out and they said hey you know you've got to try and stop us right now we don't have anything to lose we're behind by right they'll be on by six at the time you know so like we saw earlier uh in in the match where Johnson and stone had some success.

With some speed ups and we've seen it in the previous MLPs that if navratul and Hewitt a pressured and they're pressured they're not pressured with a regular speed up they're pressured with something that's up into the body up underneath the chin because those guys are looking to be aggressive all the time they're not looking to get.

Out of the way they're looking to attack as well so with those balls it then forces the next one next one to be up so it'll be interesting to see out here after the timeout if navratil and Hewitt are going to be more aggressive themselves well it is all the momentum on the side of the jackrabbits here.

Hunter Johnson to serve Stone coming and stepping in the middle again being aggressive and we are all tied up here late in this game the 21 at 16. on a nicely from Stone the little finger wagon there say no no that's not happening I'll move out of the way that one he's feeling good right now is Adam.

Stone she may take the lead by one that's a tough leave too because it's a lot closer than I think any of us thought yeah I just got a little flat with it it'd been hitting with heavy a Top Spin and that one flattened out on him I got Kim klustis sitting over in the in.

The stands over behind Cameron Blackwood overhead there from Hunter Johnson and they regain a one-point lead here 18-17 18 17. nice digs from Adam Stone that's a ball you can't if you hear it you can't miss that ball no it wasn't a hot hit ball and maybe that's the reason.

Why I missed it wasn't expecting it to be as slow as it was but that Ball's up you got to do something with that Hunter Johnson that two-handed backhand is lethal and it is a game a point and match point here for the jackrabbits a little bit of a stunner here Chad freeze freeze for the jackrabbits now having to get this last point on this uh.

set from Adam Stone oh what an overhead from Rafa Hewitt that is a tough ball how did he's running back flicks it gets it down into the kitchen well now we are all Frozen as bl2k is at 18. so now both teams can only score on their serve.

Oh Stone's trying to pull that forehand on the middle goes a little long and we're 20 19. boqk within one that ball was a couple of inches deep nice side out here to the jackrabbits as they will have their second opportunity to take this match off the paddle on Hunter Johnson never.

Till plays it but it is a 21-19 victory and then and the jack rabbits answer were all square at one match a piece let me check your jaw is almost hitting the table here what was the Difference Maker for the jackrabbits to answer that I was not expecting that that comeback right there but definitely Stone and and.

Johnson stepped on the gas became aggressive with taking risks but you know that's pickable right you get into a little bit of a Groove they were looking off balance then they get a couple they get some confidence with a few balls and then you just keep rolling with it rolling with it rolling with it and.

That's building that confidence back up you guys were down 11 16. what was said in those timeouts for you guys to pull this win out yeah we just came together and uh we we couldn't really get much going on the dinking and we just kind of realized okay we need to be the.

Aggressive team here we kind of just compose ourselves and and kind of when we play more aggressive we play better so we just kind of reestablished it and uh went after it and it paid off luckily you weren't able to play in the first two MLP events do an injury you're back now veteran on the team what did you say here to Hunter to start this match oh.

Well uh just like Hunter said they weren't giving us much in the dink rallies I made a couple poor decisions on attacking Zayn and so we were just thinking about being more aggressive early in the point and uh you know if we avoid getting to the kitchen and you know hit a couple big shots uh with some shake and bake uh that's what got us.

Back into it thanks guys back to you all right well we will take a quick commercial break we are all square here at one going into mixed doubles gonna be a fun one both of these mixed doubles matches they matter Chad but we'll be back here in Columbus with the first round of mixed doubles blqk in the.

Back here in a Columbus Ohio mixed doubles coming up next their first round looks like it's going to be from what we can see on court Paris Todd and Zane navratil for blqk and looks like on the flip side Vivian David and Hunter Johnson who have played together before who are familiar with each other so this jackrabbits mixed doubles pairing isn't.

One that isn't very familiar with each other they know each other they play well together what are you looking at from this match up here Chad no and and I like this pairing right here of David and Johnson David's an excellent right side player she plays right side in in women's doubles as well a lot Johnson we just.

Saw him on the left has that excellent two-hand backhand speed up so it's going to be a test here for navratul and Todd whether they can hold off on the aggressiveness that we're hopefully going to see from from Johnson and David thank you thank you k out to a 2-0 lead here on the.

Jackrabbits early in this game to 21. even with the unforced error off the tape blqk in control yeah that's the right ball to speed up for David just kind of rushed it that's a hard thing of trying to finish that ball too soon when you see that opportunity.

Wow I mean that's such a veteran move from someone who's not a veteran in the game Paris Todd she sped that ball up at about 50 looking for the next ball yeah and we talk about that a lot when when you go to speed a ball up not necessarily is it to win the point it's to set up that next ball so anytime you speed up treat it as that one-two punch.

Which which Todd just did that ball goes a little long off the forehand from Paris Todd three and jackrabbits on the board here just wide on that sideline from Hunter Johnson he's upset with himself because he had an opening.

true wow I mean Vivian David had an ATP early in that point never till defense and then they go on the aggressive yeah and it I mean excellent ATP defense by navratoll Johnson had to slide across him in the middle of the court and there wasn't much that he could do after.

Navratul got that back nice attack from Hunter Johnson and they get on the board again here but they need to put a couple together in a row here to get back in I think Johnson's one of the the rare plays that has more power in the in his backhand compared to his forehand.

yeah you're exactly right when he's driving the ball he's driving the ball and wanting to do it on that two-handed backhand side to set up his next shot the LQK out to a five-point lead here good spot there from never till Crossing up Hunter Johnson on the.

Sideline and it looked like Johnson was going to go down the line with it but then the pace changed he tried to go back Cross Court top of ball to take crossbow at when that ball is back behind you nice ball there from Vivian David going right at the body and never till and just gets caught up right there good.

Catch though he looks down that's the same yeah same spot there from there until Chad yeah and John Johnson's trying to be aggressive come cover middle there never to recognizing it just a medium-paced ball back behind him catch him off balance.

Good adjustment off the tape from navratil but Paris Todd getting caught on that forehand side just a little bit right there but again the jackrabbits David and Johnson they keep getting one point at a time they can't catch up getting that one point at a time they can't get any points on their serve right now.

Oh I never tell throwing that ball straight up how much he can do with that the only only hope maybe is to come across side of the net and throw up some spinny thing but getting directly underneath it when it's right against the net there oh gravity going inside out forehand right there.

And they will get the end change on their terms up 11-4 here in control is blqk over the jackrabbits in this first mixed doubles match up let's check out their schedule for today here on Championship Court we got this match up right now boqk and the jackrabbits the next match up ranchers and chimeras is going to be a good one.

Too I mean they're all going to be good here Chad but you know we're going to be here on the hour until about 8 30 tonight on Championship Court no we're gonna need some some Red Bull and some coffee and some things uh to stay here and get all this done but the best part about this is every one of these matchups they all matter they're.

All great teams you know great matchups yeah but right now the only thing that matters is this mixed doubles matchup with the upset the jackrabbits and men's doubles puts a lot of pressure on these two mixed doubles matches trying not to get to that dream breaker and it looks like the LQK is cruising along here uh his first.

Mission if I was to pick a team that's going to come out on top if we go to the dream breaker it's going to be it's going to be blqk Paris Todd's dad watching very intensely on the top row of the bleachers out of that end change the jackrabbits jumping out quickly but again they're able to get the side out but they're not.

Able to get any more points on their serve all five of their points have come on side outs there's too much pressure from navratil and Todd up by seven David a little too much on that not happy with herself yeah you get into this situation like.

You're talking about they're only getting points off of their return their return sites you start trying to do too much and force that point now you're making errors now you're leaving balls up there's no way to stop closing that distance or going on that run if you're trying to do too much.

And then what happens too on the flip side of things you have blqk playing very loose right now with the nine point lead they're making play very aggressively knowing they got that cushion yeah and looking at some of our live stats here we're looking at a seven to one error ratio between jackrabbits and.

And boqk so boq K definitely playing clean of pickleball right now they are forcing a lot of those pop-ups a good speed up from from navratul right there David's kind of like IO there's not much I can do yeah jackrabbit's gonna burn their second time out here but I mean it's all Bo UK right now heading into this fourth.

And Final Mix doubles matchup I mean what do if anything can the jackrabbits do to try and get back in this I mean but the problem is they can't score on their shirt yeah I think you know we haven't seen an aggressive sod from the jackrabbits while they're serving they're going for more drops we've seen a couple of couple of drives.

From Johnson but but not a whole lot I think that's definitely the area where they have to switch some things up you know be more aggressive take a few more risks on on when you do get that sub because so far you haven't been able to do anything with it at all yeah let's see what happens out of this time out.

And again it'll put blqk in the driver's seat looking to take that last mixed doubles matchup and not have to go to that dream breaker because you have hey Patrick Quinn one of our alternates this weekend who he's talking to this early in the morning but obviously it's important for the Young Buck.

Master Quinn oh nice that's a beautiful Ernie from Hunter Johnson on the backhand side the ball was out though a couple of a couple of inches out dog it did look like it was in but from where we're at our angle we get.

Blocked off from that space between the court looked in looked clean but clearly out all right well just long enough that that looked that would look in from hour right it did it was probably three inches out from the sideline oh it wasn't too far but it was still out.

wow great defense there from Hunter Johnson and Vivian David Johnson throws his hands up like hey what are we gonna do we're going to do finally they can't even coordinate on the on the high fives yeah I don't know what's going on right now but we got a lot of.

Work to do that's all I know here they get a point on their serve there the first one how many times are pairs Todd and Zayn never till gonna get a record here I mean they've they've gotten a ton this match we see Johnson getting a little a little frustrated with it yo it's part.

Of pickable there's so many mole let bowls or netballs in in pickleball just with the weight of the ball it's Match Point here for bl2k fall just long off the paddle of Mavericks Hill and blqk is frozen here at 20. so they can only score on their serve now so Vivian David to serve.

All just long Sails Long off of Hunter Johnson's paddle in Paris Todd will serve for the match Point number two just wide off the paddle from Vivian David and BLK rolls in this first next doubles matchup.

21-8 I mean Chad that was just pedal to the medal for blqk in that matchup yeah I mean the air is crept in a little too much for for the jackrabbits right there but Todd and navrats will play clean pickleball aggressive pickleball making them really have to work for it like I said throughout that whole match.

Jackrabbits weren't able to score any points on their serve so it makes it extremely difficult trying to stay in a match or come back from that big of a deficit all right and we have Cameron Blackwood sidelined with zaynaverton Paris Todd take it away cam Zane a dominating performance how are you able to regroup after that tough.

Loss invent doubles uh just turn the brain off and hit the ball and uh move your feet that's all I was thinking about and Paris talk to us a little bit about your role how are you able to set up opportunity for yourself and Zane you know when Zane's moving so much as much as he does to try and set him up and you.

Know speed up a ball and then get a high ball and just let him finish so I feel like it's working really great for us and Zane's playing awesome so we're really excited thanks back to you Dom all right we're going to take a commercial break when we come back this second mix doubles match up between the.

Jackrabbits and blqk don't go anywhere foreign the type of player you are Junior for now no matter where you're from my name is no matter your gender no matter your age no matter what tour you play on or who.

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

Looking for pro XR is the most revolutionary technology in pickleball back in at Columbus Ohio our fourth match here between blqk and the jackrabbits all comes down to this blqk thrown out Rafa Hewitt and Irina tarashenko be taking on Maggie brasha and Adam Stone here's what's at stake brush and stone need to win this match.

To force the dream breaker if the LQK wins this match it's all over they'll win three to one what do stone and brasha need to do here Chad so this is again going to be a tough one Hewitt's going to be aggressive playing head to head or in front of stone Tara shenko with that slice and dice spin control.

Yo Stone's got to be choosing the right balls to speed up he can't take those little off speed 50 speed UPS like he did in men's doubles and got away with a couple of them so it's I think for the jackrabbits it's just playing clean pickleball if like we saw with with Johnson and David if the errors start creeping in it's a really.

Really tough battle to try to come back from against somebody like parachute or a team like Tara shenko and Hewitt taroshenko and Hewitt they're just going to play they're just going to play that game yeah and I'll take too many risks be aggressive but not take too any you know too many unnecessary risks and my ex.

Factor here is I think Adam Stone playing the left side he's more of a right he's a right side player and so him trying to be dominant on that left side is gonna be a Difference Maker for me foreign.

Leaves that ball he knows it as soon as that ball passed his left shoulder he knew he should have played it yeah and he set himself up for that that ball and then second guess whether he was going to hit it or or not wasn't going to be a a big swing from Hewitt with how how well Stone sped that ball up on him.

we shaped that around around the post that's not your typical around the around the pulse there hitting the outside of the ball and bringing it back in oh what an angle from Adam Stone right there and that's what it's all about on.

Those overheads Chad it's about the angle it's not about how hard it's about where well Stone's not going to be that overly hard overhead hitter right so he works on angles a lot of his game is working working on on angles he's not the most powerful guy but he is consistent and he does have the control to hit those angles.

Beautiful and radar cue the point before when Stone hits a forehand drive it's flat as can be but what his goal is to try and just keep the flip that just over the neck so it's hard for any of his opponents to try and get that up and back over that's a good setup right there off of.

You a little shooter mcaden right there in the middle after he puts this ball away yeah and it's a good move I mean he pulls Brasher out why taroshenko goes over puts the pressure on with the the potential of the Oni so brush is taking a ball back Cross Court that she does need to go down on the down the line.

With foreign Hewitt and he's all square here at five a little wide on that law but what a scramble from tarashenko and Hewitt that was the eye formation pickleball right there tarashanko's Rover in the back trying to figure out which side Hewitt's.

Gonna gonna go to a couple of wide balls from each team right there just missing that Baseline right there love the idea yeah that's it that's the right ball to speed up she's trying to go body on Tara shenko developing I I actually like this match.

Up in the essence of Stone can handle the backhand cross-court think of taroshenko if we're we've got brasha over over on that side or or vice versa Brasher and tarashenko are going cross-bought together much more difficult for her to handle just because it's it's something that that she's not not used to seeing as much.

And right there Stone takes the ball off the body blqk out to a one point lead oh Stone misses the ball in the middle but I like the point construction like you said from Stone he's not afraid to go to Tara strangler's backhand but he won't go there more than twice no and then he changes it up he moves it around the other thing that stone you know we.

Talked about when he hits his his full hand drive it's really flat stone plays flat a lot of the time so that flatter face paddle works well with taroshenko's slice or backhand if you if you open it up too much foreign change on the terms of blqk but we have Cameron blackwood's sidelined with a.

Special guest who you got for us cam I am here with Kim kleiser's six-time Grand Slam champion and now half owner with Tom Brady for next year's MLP thank you so much for being here and joining the MLP Family First MLP event how's it going so far what are your thoughts it's so exciting and um yeah just the the energy out there is so much fun to watch.

And you know I feel it when I play the game but to see these Pros do it and just to see the level that they play you know from first to last point is incredible so it's super excited to be here and um I'm very happy I decided to make decision to to be a part of the team but to be here and to kind of feel what it's like to um to be around the.

The official event and we were talking about before this the differentiation between tennis and pickleball and all the different shots go ahead and go into that just a little bit more um well you know it is yeah there is a big difference uh you know we also hold a racket or a paddle like they say here but it's um yeah just a touch of it.

Right it's so amazing to see their hands how how quick their reaction is and and just the control of the touch and the thinking that they have so it's super exciting I love that we're able to see women's doubles but six doubles men's doubles and um yeah just so much fun to see you know the the intensity from start to finish and out of those four.

Events which one is your favorite so far that you've seen I don't really have a favorite I love I love the variety of it all I love seeing you know where we started off with women's women's doubles here and and then seeing the men's play and it's just so exciting to have the variety that's what I love and um and yeah it's it's such a great event and.

For families to come out and enjoy this with kids and you know it's still early here but the kids there's kids in this dance cheering you know their family on and they're getting really into it and I feel like that's what this sport does really well is they they draw you in right away because every point is important and um and it's yeah it's it's.

Exciting from start to finish well thank you so much again Kim kleisers joined the MLP family we're so excited to have you back to you guys all right thank you Cam and thank you Kim and her partner for 2023 Tom Brady coming in owning one of our expansion teams for 2023 exciting times nothing like it here at MLP wow and again a little shoot him again.

In there from Rafa Hewitt as he gets some high fives from Paris sideline I I feel like he comes up with something new each uh each thorner right he's he's got the paddle on the head he's got the dog bark this one he's got the got the shooter McGavin always fun to watch is Rafa Hewitt and they are out to a four-point lead here.

Trying to win this outright and not go to a dream breaker all right shanko changed her mind last second it looked like she was gonna pull the trigger on that but then doesn't yeah I think that ball stayed a little lower than she was originally anticipating so when she went to go and.

Pull that trigger she was like yeah not a good idea but tough to to try to get that ball out of the net when it gets so deep as well you want to eliminate Adam Stone from driving anything keep the return nice and low like you it did right there forces it to be really tough for Adam Stone with a.

Flat Drive that ball up and over the video board on the Baseline as Rafa Hewitt starting to heat up here yeah and that's the intensity Hewitt has to play at that's when he plays his best pickleball is when he's really moving really getting into the point once he goes into those slower longer rallies he kind of gets.

Back on his heels a little bit foreign slapping Hewitt on the back firing him up to a 16-10 lead here tarashenko winning that backhand Cross Court with Adam Stone is going to be a.

Timeout here from the jackrabbits Stone are very upset as he heads to the sidelines but what is it that the jackrabbits need to do to answer here Chad as it looked like they were in it and now blqk pulling away yeah blqk has become a little bit more aggressive again but the errors are creeping back into the jackrabbits game yo we've seen.

Four or five in in the last five or six points so you know we've got live stats here in front of us and you see it was pretty throughout whole and now we're seeing that big that big gap seven point lead now and we've we've seen that the errors really jump up especially on on Stone's side.

Um he's got to get back into it a little bit of picking up the intensity he's become a little a little flat a little bit more flat-footed so that's that's a big change that they're gonna try to do here uh pick up the intensity with before letting this one go any further oh and Hewitt off the left shoulder that ball going that's so loud that's one way.

To pick up the intensity wow he was Stone was trying to hit that through the wall and and tarashenko turned and she she was very upset she was upsellers herself because that ball was so high stone was able to attack yeah not upset at ruffy Hewitt thank you.

Oh wow I mean here we go Rafa Hewitt feeling it again yeah and sometimes that that movement and that pressure from from a big guy like Hewitt again forces you to try to hit bigger to get it past him oh if you had taken that ball out of the.

Air I thought he was going to let that ball bounce and then attack it reaches in yeah I think if he lets that ball bounce it kicks back toward the net and then he's not not able to do much with it so a good choice of taking it out of the air I view it just peacock in there up at.

The kitchen line and they take a 2011 lead as they will be frozen here can only score on their serve you were just stepping in says I will take care of this 21-11 and blqk makes a statement in mixed doubles Chad 21-8 for Todd and never tell 21-11 for tarashenko and Hewitt that's how you answer after.

Losing men's doubles yeah and and Naruto and Hewitt lost a close one in men's doubles are up the whole match so you expected them to come come out and be more aggressive and that's exactly what they were right super aggressive high intensity they're blqk is really hard to stop especially in mixed doubles when both the guys are feeding off of.

That and just keep on rolling through making those balls all right well boqk takes this one by a score of 3-1 and Cameron Blackwood is sidelined with Irina tarashenko Rafa Hewitt and the rest of the blqk team what do you got for us cam profit you were champions in Austin runner-ups in Newport what's the conversation with.

Your team before you come out this morning we're just here we're ready to have some fun playing a lot of pickleball so we're ready to go mixed doubles was completely dominating we had a 21-8 21-11 in both of those was that your plan coming in as aggressive.

welcome to the ABCs of MLP your Guide to Everything Major League pickleball what makes MLP the best pickleball event is the team aspect which is foundational to the league teams consist of two girls and two guys first team to win three out of the four games wins the match.

Every serve must be underhand and go across the net diagonally followed by the double bounce rule what that means is the ball must bounce on the serve and the return and then it's game on the format starts with women's doubles followed by men's doubles and ends with two mixed doubles at the end of that if the teams are tied two to two we go to a.

Dream breaker but don't worry we'll cover that later foreign obviously a world-class athlete and I was trying to get him to implement a little bit more topspin so Drew has a tennis background from when he was a kid and when you see a tennis player come into the sport they're hitting a lot of.

Slice volleys and if you watch Pros I think most of us are trying to implement some sort of topspin to allow us to be a little bit more aggressive with the balls just ever so slightly more for me to help you that was just a simple tip he's already got such a strong base he's already a very good player who knows maybe he.

There and I think it's just something that brings people together too whether it's family friends communities it just proves that this sport is truly for anyone and everyone good uh Deco bar take one I'm Deco Barr originally from Israel from Haifa I started playing pickleball.

Uh a bit over four years ago I was a professional tennis player growing up uh and I played on tour I got to play a lot in the US and I got introduced into pickleball by the Johns Brothers started playing right away tournaments and got hooked and just wanted to play more and more I came to the us as much as I could and then moved because of pickleball our.

Thanks to pickleball to the US and started playing full-time and now it's my full-time job my whole family is still in Israel so it's not easy being away from all your family but I got some great friends here the pickleball Community is was very welcoming uh so I think that's one of the great things about pickleball the.

Community it's not not easy moving and doing you're an entire different country different culture different people so it's everything is very new it was challenging at first I'm definitely getting used to it and I'm I'm actually loving it so I would do it over again foreign.

Being a player in MLP first of all it's a great honor it's the you know our only league in the sport it's very fun to play with the you know great teammates and compete for for the biggest prize in the sport growing up playing tennis it was very lonely because you're on the court alone you're traveling alone.

And coming to pickleball and now playing in a team event like this it's a lot of fun it's very different you know you have a team a family that is traveling with you that is playing with you that supports you you definitely don't feel alone there's a lot of support a lot of help from you know from the owners from the from the players from just the fans.

That support your team so it's uh it's great I'm I'm loving it I'm Deco Barr and I love MLP because there's nothing else like it welcome back to Columbus Ohio we have about 10 minutes before the start of our next match so we're gonna stay right here you have the chimeras and the defending.

Champions from Newport Beach the ranchers coming up next so we'll stick with you right here we'll be back with live action just in about 10 minutes so don't go anywhere get that morning coffee get comfortable we got a good one coming for you next foreign.

Thank you thank you foreign foreign foreign.

Foreign is Amazing Grace we do.

This foreign thank you everybody.

oh my God you're good tomorrow back here on Championship Court Dominic Catalano alongside me is Chad Edwards Chad we got a good one for you here ranchers chimeras both their first match.

Of the day ranchers you're defending Champions the chimeras with one of the most veteran female players on tour in Andrea Coop playing alongside a newcomer Megan fudge what are you looking for in this women's doubles match up here Chad to start off between the ranchers and chimeras yeah I think this is going to be a good test for the ranches after.

Coming off of their win from Newport Beach yo the chimeras haven't made it through in either of the previous ones but with the experience of Coupe clutch is getting better each tournament that she plays bride and kawamoto obviously you know MVPs of Newport Beach it's a 67-33 win probability for the ranches.

But like we it was what 77 77 for blqk and uh and jackrabbits and and jackrabbits Stone and Johnson came back on it so yo yes that probability is there but anything can happen in MLP with with the rally scoring so Coop obviously being the veteran she's going to control a lot of the points fudge has.

Gotten a lot better as far as control wise setting things up but with bright she's got that that X Factor when she's on she's really really hard to beat kawamoto just steady as always every time she's out on the court yeah and we were you know here on court for warm-ups Anna bright was feeling it in warm-ups you heard her early on you know she is.

Fired up and ready to go she feeds off of this you know team atmosphere only a few years removed from her College attendance college tennis days so you know feeding off of that a lot of these tennis players that come into you know pickleball and are now in MLP they love this format and it's because of that team format Chad that they're feeding.

Off of oh absolutely I mean I'll tell you right now Simone was was set to retire at the end of this year she played in the first MLP in Austin and she had so much fun being back in that team element that you know now she you know she signed a new two-year two-year deal and she's going to be back on the tour at least to play MLPs I mean if.

Anything else I mean Tom Brady Simone Georgie same thing right I mean the goats in their perspective Sports saying I'm going to retire no I'm not I'm coming back all right quick 1-0 lead here for the chimeras okay you're seeing Anna bright early on.

Sitting in that middle trying to take over you know when she first came on it was that the two-handed backhand that was her big weapon now both sides forehand backhand she can do a lot with both of them a little long on the forehand from Andrea Cooper right away you're seeing.

The development of Megan fudge here early on yeah she's she's definitely gone a lot better with with consistency with keeping balls down staying in rallies longer and she's developed some power in her game as well it used to be that she would would just push everything back we've used the term annoying before but.

We've heard players talk about the kalamotos and how annoying they are to play yeah that being shown right there from Jackie Komodo on overhead she's getting back yeah the both the the calamaro kawamoto sisters are just defensive Specialists but you know Jackie has that little that little sneaky power right in there as well.

Um so yeah it's like that's how the game is progressing now right the offenses become so much bigger in the game just too much right there in the middle just taking over you can tell how much he's into it or how much he's pumped up by the speed that she Walks from the kitchen back to the Baseline she's like.

Power walking it back there saying let's get to the next point oh look at her step in the middle and try and poach that ball but just can't get enough on top of it Sails Long three four just a great spot there for Amanda bright in the middle yeah she's she's really progressed with with all of her.

Strokes calamoto just a little deep right there trying to reach that but she's just off the kitchen line a little too much yeah I think she's you know trying to give bryt a little bit of room allow bryt to move over whenever she wants but you've got to be careful that you don't get too far back which is what happened.

On that last Point like you said I'm making fudge trying to reset those just couldn't get it soft enough to drop into the kitchen and kalmoto able to attack all right fudge just should let that ball travel a little too much not getting it at its peak and it's Apex yeah and the paddle had never dropped.

Underneath the ball on that one she still had the wrist cocked like it was going to be higher paddlehead was up oh it's a good leave there from Andrew Coop on the overhead from Anna bright yeah and that's a a tough one for bright as well Cal Moto with her sliding over cow mode was still in the way so she.

Couldn't get behind that ball as much as she wanted foreign Coupe communicating very well with her partner saying no a little counter-attack power right there calmoto's not necessarily sitting on it but she was so short and so quick to that Bowl.

Being up in that ready position coops speed up down the line we've not affected at all just wide there from Bright a good one-two combo so we talked about in in Newport with DJ young and his controlled aggression like you need him to play aggressive but he can't do too much it's similar to how Anna bright needs to play.

As well if she starts trying to do too much or getting too big then those balls Sail on her but if she stays like she is right there nice and short and quick 10 seconds Coop and fudge trying to answer get this.

A little closer and change at 11. foreign yeah great ball from Brighton as you see on the sideline there's ranchers owner Tim klitsch I mean he is straight Austin Texas up here in Columbus Ohio supporting his defending champion ranchers as they take an 11-8 lead here.

On the end change and it's it's tight it's a it's a close match here fudge and Coop a couple mistakes on resets but they're starting to figure it out and I think if fudge can get those resets down they're gonna inch back in here yeah I mean the the difference if we're looking at our stats right now.

Actually more errors coming from the ranches and chimeras but you know we're also looking at more when is coming from from the ranches so it's kind of a give and take uh with within that one uh brought obviously the the more aggressive player on the court calamoto fudge more defensive Coupe does has a good all-round game and can can switch.

Between the two but yeah if if they allow brought to really go full throttle and and start pushing balls on them yo tough tough to do uh against against the player you know like that and Andrew Cooper right there you saw it at Grand Haven Michigan.

And a bright to serve after the end change and nice counter there from Megan fudge as she read the bright speed up very well yeah excellent counter-attack and that's something that brought that uh fudge is gonna have to do with broad thing directly in front of us she's got to.

Just sit on for that that counter attack or expect that ball to be coming hot at her she's got enough time to to adjust if the ball comes soft foreign and that love had a little extra on it too she dropped the paddlehead under and.

Just flicked it up and over so when it bounced it actually kicked further away from coop that's why calamoto was able to just hit that little soft drama because it had pulled Coop so far back behind the Baseline wow what a setup from Andrew coop yeah good move by coop.

Former number one at UCLA women's tennis she can still move extremely well on the court has that full two-hand two-hand backhand forehand round combination wow two good Cross Court there from Anna Brighton has that ball gets pulled Cross Court Andrew Coop could do nothing but clap say a nice shot yeah and that's where a.

We're seeing more women hit well even guys now as well we saw Johnson early hitting that two-handed backhand because you can take a ball like that go heavy left hand and really pull it cross-court it's much more difficult to do with a one-handed form with one-handed backhand fudge on Forester right there trying to keep it low though and the that air is.

Forced because Anna bright and comodo being so aggressive trying to keep that so low flips the tape instant timeout here from the chimeras and Andrea Coop and Megan fudge as the ranchers extend their lead and it just looks like ever since the end change Chimera is just a little out of sorts.

Here Chad yeah it's hard for them to try to slow the pace down against Brighton and kalamoto they've just just being too uh nothing too aggressive but bright is really controlling the the pace of this this game right now and then calamoto is is finishing when when she gets her chances so you know it's.

Either uh coop coop and fudge take a step back just one step back off of the kitchen light give yourself a little bit more reaction time to keep some of those balls down um or you got to move the ball around again foreign.

Yeah and bright trying to get back involved right there she got pulled Cross Court but a good job there from Andrew coop all right a free one there and fudge and Coop will take it I mean she's playing probably 65 70 of the court right now yeah is Anna bright.

Yeah and she has the ability to uh to to do that and especially when you go to a partner like calamoto who you know hey I can take risks if that ball gets past me she's still gonna be there and put the ball back foreign from a low position and at someone who's.

So aggressive at being Anna bright you have a bright bright does a great job there of not trying to swing big on on Coop's attack she just puts a paddle on and puts it back down at budges feet if if you take a big swing on that attack coming up that ball is gonna either pop up or it's gonna Sail on you so it's it's difficult to recognize when.

It is I can really go big or when it is I just need to put a paddle on and try to put it back down and that comes with with playing more and that's that's where she's starting to understand Coop and fudge going with a stack here putting fudge on the left.

I think Coop just trying to shake things up because fudge is definitely the Target right now foreign trying to find that back corner goes a little long that's a tough ball to do that with.

Right there because it's so close to the neck yeah the only way you can keep that in is if you have really strong wrists and you get underneath that and snap it that one just coming too flat all right that's just a frustration shot right there from fudge because Anna bright doing everything she can keeping everything in play and it is a.

Match point here for the Ranchers 2013. oh and Enterprise trying to go hard cross court right there but a good job right there right Andrea Coop but she took over about 70 of the court right there 14 20. ranchers Frozen on 20 right now wow I mean what worked for Megan fudge.

Back there at the Baseline getting everything that Anna bright had to offer back I just can't get back in the point it'll be Match Point number two here for the Ranchers and a bright ends it right there 21-14 I mean in chat it's kind of.

Exactly what we expected Anna bright to come out hot swinging early is that what you saw yeah that's that's the uh the type of play that that she's gotta well the type of level that she's got to play at yo going with the aggressiveness being in that high-paced environment that's what she feeds off that's where she's playing her best pickleball at if.

She allows herself to slow down yo it's it's typically what we see with these aggressive players if they try to slow down too much they get back on their heels and that's where they stop making mistakes all right it looks like Cameron Blackwood is a sideline with Anna bright and Jackie kalamoto what do you got for us Cameron jacket a dominating.

Performance by you guys how are you able to neutralize the power from Coop and Megan and take the swim I think just right off the bat we know we wanted to put all the pressure on them and just come out swinging and move the ball around keep them on their heels so yeah and Anna you were able to move the ball around so easily what are you looking to.

Create when you're doing this um will that match uh we were just looking to create space in the middle mostly because coop is coming over really far so sometimes pulling her back out wide but got to give credit to Jackie there I didn't play my best pickleball there and she just she kept us in it and gave me time to to play.

Better so that's that's why you need to call Mona thanks back to you Chad Well Chad and I back here going if that's nothing pickleball we are in for a treat and mixed doubles we'll take a quick commercial break when we come back men's doubles here ranchers chimeras on Championship Court here at the MLP in Columbus.

Welcome back to MLP Columbus we're in Columbus Ohio our second matchup of the day our first pitted blqk versus the jackrabbits yoqk came out on top 3-1 now we got the ranchers taking on the chimeras ranchers take the first match in women's doubles by a score of 21-14 pretty handily now it's all about the men DJ young.

James ignatowich taking on Daniel de la Rosa and Gabriel tardio prediction shed predictions uh tadio is going to be the X Factor in in this one you know again we're at 71-29 for the ranches with that can change um we saw tadio jump in for for the fives.

Um in Newport Beach he can be a big X Factor on the court but the other one is going to be DJ Young which DJ's going to show exactly is is it the the Controlled Chaos or is it just chaos right and we know that when DJ young is playing with Controlled Chaos he is one of the best players on the court if not.

The game itself and that's the DJ young we saw in Newport Beach and that was one of the main reasons that they came out on top with the championship in Newport Beach so we'll see early on here which one it's going to be because we talked with DJ young and James ignado it's in Newport they started off slow yeah as far as men's doubles they didn't win.

Men's doubles until the finals yes and so they didn't play as well as they wanted the ladies kept them in there yes very very much so now ignotowitz's game has come come along even further since Newport as far as the doubles game singles he's always been he's always been great on oh that's a good that's a great pull and.

A good sign for DJ Young and the Ranchers no I mean that's something new that's not something that we see a lot of with DJ young going with the two-hander right there but potentially that's that's a way for him to stay a little bit more controlled.

Not get so big one more on the flip side with tardio cotardio and I'll put Eric Lang in that that category they were the two hottest men as far as free agents went going into you know the the supplemental draft EO going to the chimeras and Eric Lang going to the bus yeah and you.

Know tadio really really well technically wasn't supposed to be in Newport it was a he was a late uh addition as far as a sob goals and then because he got his shot everybody was like oh okay he can play Yo he's young but he can still do it come on DJ young trying to.

Go that forehand pancake right here you watch him flip that over it's hard to control that and he's trying to go deep with it and it goes wrong that's one that's got to be it's got to be way out in front of you so you can hit down on it you're trying to hit a pancake on a ball that's close it's just going to stay stay flat.

Creeping along here in this game 3-3 that's good return right there from De la Rosa nice and deep puts young back behind the Baseline I didn't I didn't realize till the other day because I've seen you know we've seen DJ young in in pickleball for you know a few years now I didn't realize he's only 21.

You look at the guy he's like oh yeah he's like late 20s whatever all inside out forehand there from tardio bodies up young yeah that's a that's one thing that tadio does extremely well is able to to use those wrists he's very sneaky pizzario as he does have he's got all the trick shots in the book right but.

It's about proper timing yeah yeah he's young and he's trying to do everything absolutely very deceptive and his timing's got to be there when it drops in off the tape and no team can pull away here Chad six five so we you know we talk about ages of some of these plays.

Taylor Rose is the oldest guy in the court at 28 right here we got what 16 21 22. tape out of bounds and no one can pull away more than one it's just been creeping and creeping along here early in this game rally scoring 221 oh and De la Rosa with the big forehand.

And arguably hits the ball as hard as anybody well that's that racquetball slap he definitely has the the forearm strength wrist strength to be able to hit that ball right there again oh if you're a little head shake beat it if you're gonna feed it right there that is not the right spot there it was the head shake no it's.

Not happening it's not coming back now if if James wasn't wasn't classy right there he could have been around and done a whole big finger wag and stuff back at it but he made an adjustment yeah he didn't go to De La Rose he found the middle he did the same thing just made an adjustment on the spot.

ranchers back within one here that's a that's the growth of ignatowicz as far as pickleball comes right so where I play a lot of players get in trouble is they they say okay I didn't beat you this one I'm gonna hit it hard in the next one well I'm gonna hit it hard in the next one instead of changing.

The spot or creating an angle of something else it's always that thought process of I can hit it through somebody oh DJ young right off the left shoulder of De la Rosa and the ranchers take a lead come on they were down by two and now they take a two-point lead on the end.

Change here ranchers you say there we say a commanding two-point lead because it's been so close here hey it's major league pickleball even 10 isn't safe no nothing safe with the rally scoring and that's why I love this format and how it is because no lead is safe but then when you get to the end and you you get Frozen at 20 and 18 right there now it.

Turns back into traditional pickleball that's why we love it and that's why if this this format and MLP is so popular but speaking of that with the chimeras De la Rosa centaurio hanging in here nicely what do they need to do to just get over that hump right now um you know we haven't there's not a huge uh uh era Ratio or error factor for.

For auditing right here so I think it's more so if dela Rosa and and tadio can put a little bit more pressure on ignotovich and young spread them out a little bit more now some of their balls might be a little bit more effective in the last few points they haven't done that and that's what's given that even albeit short uh lead for.

The ranches oh they go along right there and De la Rosa and sardio answer and that's something where it's kind of like hey I just hit a really really bad ball the only thing I can try to do is is counter attack and they did a good good counter-attack on it but in retrospect it has to be a better ball.

To start with than solely waiting on a on a counter attack okay foreign but again he had young leaning backhand right yeah look at that it's a DJ young slid to the backhand so I thought tardio was going to double up there tardio flip.

Middle and that's that's the use of time right if you can hold it hold it hold it and then you get a read of the body now you can adjust if you try to rush through these shots even when you're speeding up it's not it's you're not able to make these bowls just had an extremely oh my God that.

Bowl hit so hot oh he did it on the two-hander there three points in a row he's young recently turned 17 year old this week Gabe tardio three points in a row toddio's flashing at all right now oh and when De la Rosa hits it that hard good luck getting out of the way right.

You hit nothing that ball had hit him by the time he said no right wow in a commanding leaked here by three well this is a I mean that that's a five-point swing right there big stop there from the Ranchers oh caught him on a football right foot oh left foot yep right on the sideline right there.

So Chimera is thinking they may challenge this and we do have a challenge here from the chimeras on the foot fault called on De la Rosa on his Ernie attempt what we'll see is come over Vicki Ryan is our replay.

Analyst here Ron Ponder our head referee I think it's going to be Courtney Johnson our second referee but it's going to be hard to see depends on what the angle that you need to see on this one yeah because in in reality it's got to be kitchen line from the facade to see if he steps on it it's hard to see back back Beyond.

So we'll see what angles they have see that Vicky that right there looks like he's he's on it on that corner right there yeah if he's down right there it is and I think it's a very good call by Courtney Johnson so Cole is upheld.

And the chimeras will lose their challenge and a timeout young to serve Grosso just getting a little too big there but the difference was is that wasn't a ball that had as much Pace on the previous ones so it was actually a.

Little bit ahead of it dropping it down into the uh into the net just called out immediately the ranchers bench oh no okay so it was Megan fudge from the sideline on the chimeras telling tardio and De la Rosa know that ball was in and it was great work by boxcar Productions getting.

That call seeing that great camera angles there on the Baseline and ranchers take a one-point lead and ambitious on that one tough tough ball to get back in reality that's kind of the only shot or the only attempt you have is once that ball gets to the to the feet or between the legs.

And that ball just long right there Rose santardio reading that yeah long by about six inches yeah a little confusion in the middle I think De la Rosa thought tardio was going to play that all tied at 16.

Taylor Ross are feeling really confident right here a lot of head shaking and balls coming his way guess what Chad we're all tied we're 17 points in all right we've got our stat line here and it's literally it looks like a body heel it's.

Just wrapping around itself as far as giving the the game Flow wow what a step in right there put a a veteran Choice from tardio to drop that ball back in and allow De la Rosa to come in and step up and put that ball away yeah if he drives that uh dela Rosa doesn't get up to the line foreign.

I thought there was no way he's going to be able to reach this ball either let alone keep it in fired up right now he has been the whole game and they take a two-point lead here that ball all right that's right man I don't know if ignore which was saying hey you made contact across the plane of the net.

Or if he was just trying to make something up because he got beat by a ridiculously good funny I mean if you're looking at you know looking at our stats you know DJ Young he's got he's got six errors right but you're not seeing right A lot of it right right six six hours six skills.

Kills right and so they're kind of balancing each other out right now and not a witch playing very clean three kills no errors playing a very clean game because he is playing almost that support role that DJ Young on that right side does a really good job of it but again right now down by two Ranchers.

In in trouble here late and a great move there by Taylor Rose as you watch him catch that ball he's catching it right as he explodes off of that left foot yeah ball Sails Long nice speed up there from DJ Young yeah that's a good job by Young the ball.

Floated just a little bit wasn't too high so he stayed nice and compact just a short quick flick into the body of tadio on his toes right there leaning in and the controlled aggression All Tied again here now at 19. the two-hander cross court for the.

Winner and now the ranchers will be frozen at 2019. game point here for the Ranchers from De la Rosa getting too big right there and a missed opportunity for the chimeras as the.

Ranchers win men's doubles by a score of 21-19 they will take a 2-0 lead here in this matchup I mean What's the Difference Maker right there in the end for the ranchers check I mean just it at the end the DJ young we were just talking about you know it was a it was a six to six kill to error ratio uh.

Uh he's shortened things up he was aggressive but he wasn't taking huge risks he was just having good speed UPS good aggression so as it always comes down to is with DJ young he has to stay controlled tadio and and De la Rosa were were keeping them off off balance however they want able to counter one once DJ.

Really got into the point all right Cameron Blackwood is Courtside with ignatowicz and young Cameron take it away DJ the ranchers the team to be you guys won in Newport what kind of confidence does it give you heading into a weekend gives us a lot of confidence uh I think obviously having Anna and Jackie just played so well every time in.

The first game is really good for games tonight last time we went on in three and I would want to know so we're just gonna try and keep on building and we're in such a tight match it's tied almost the whole way through what adjustments do you make in order to win the match uh well they were coming at me.

With some speed ups and I had to go analy waters on them with the slide backhand just just send that send that back and that's kind of the only contribution I made to the match but none of the less an important one thanks back to you Dom all right so a good win there on men's doubles for ignatowicz and young they're in the.

Hey Cameron how's it going almost done perfect can't wait to see your number number duper because ratings shouldn't be a surprise download the app and claim your free profile today I haven't even started yet oh back here on Championship Court it is do or die here for the chimeras in.

Mixed doubles as the Ranchers have a 2-0 lead going into mixed doubles they took men's doubles and women's doubles we'll see what teams are going to be put out there right now performed as of yet I'm gonna call DJ and Adam yeah it looks like they are stepping out and then it looks like Andrea Coop and Daniel de la.

Rosa so in I mean in reality these these are your number one mixed doubles teams I mean young and and brought trying to end it right here dela Rosa and Coop needing this one to hold on to give themselves a shot in the next mixed doubles before so it's uh the dream breaker so you know young and brought definitely a.

Tough team to beat but we started a couple of weeks ago uh with them getting taken down by Hayden Patrick and Maggie brasha so it is doable it just depends on what we've seen in in these first two matches Bryant and and young oh just feed a ball like that that gets annihilated by De la Rosa but uh.

Brighton young they just have to have to stay controlled when they go for the for the aggression they can't get too big foreign trying to go inside out forehand problem is that's a great shot for him he's got to be more towards the sideline when he goes that hard inside out it's a good start here for the chimeras.

What what hands he was beat Coop beat him down the line De la Rosa hits a really strong backhand through the middle of Young's like yeah I'll just SWAT it away one two wow and again but that's where that's where young has to live young has to live that short and that quick if he.

Gets any bigger than that then it's trouble way to get out of the way by Andrea Coop right there and good talk from De la Rosa foreign to really tee off on that forehand he has to be giving a ball at a certain speed if it's if there's any variation.

Off of that speed he's either late too early or too late yeah there's I don't care how fast you are you're not getting that shot of the angle back no oh that Ball's right on the paddle of Anna bright DJ young off his Edge guard.

All square here at four the De la Rosa there it is thank you we've seen that dela Rosa shot a few times over the last couple of MLPs really trying to keep PJ young out of that point.

And I was walking I mean the only downside is is now you're allowing something just as dangerous and out abroad to to control the point couldn't see what happened there was a cameraman in the way I saw the young put the ball into the net so we had we had a combination of.

Either side you saw young man he's a little slippery in the middle right here watch this little inside out oh yeah and that's not I mean that's not that's a get onto the ball hit heavy Top Spin with a flat paddle kind of deal that's no road that wasn't any any wrist flick with that she made that look very easy and that is.

A very difficult shot chimeras will take a one point lead here nice dink battle won by the chimeras a little high third from De la Rosa there and important allowing young to step in like most of our other matches this one.

A close one heading into the end change at 11. it's just a nice job by DJ young there in the middle taking over so that next ball came over from Dale Rose it was gonna get punished yeah DJ was cocked and ready for it nice lead there from De la Rosa this.

Little easy backhand flick where you say between that that point there and the previous Point De la Rosa is sitting up he's he's in a ready position paddles up you know it takes that the one that you missed before on the net I was watching where his paddle was it was already down at his down at his knees like back behind his body.

So paddle positioning there especially when you when you're in these these fast hand hands battles and Firefox what in the right with Ernie of all that so you guys I don't know how she kept it in because that was on the very end of her paddle full extension on the Ernie right there De la Rosa great setup and again we've.

Seen the game evolve so much Chad it's not always now about the around the post it's about the around the post defense yep all right what are you going to do with the ball after you've defended it coming back from it from around the around the pulse because yo four years ago just hitting around the.

Pulse was like oh my gosh you're hitting around the post and it's a winner yeah now it's okay I'm here I'm gun hitting around the pulse but now it's going to come back now where do I go from that so whenever you're thinking two or three shots ahead which most of these players are doing yo it's expected that around the post is.

Going to come back now good job right there Enterprise going right at the feet of Daniel de la Rosa and the ranchers will take an 11-9 lead into the end change a great job though from De la Rosa and Coop keeping this nice and tight here on the end change what do Coop and De la Rosa need to continue to do here Chad to stay in this.

And possibly move ahead here of the Rangers all right I think they're gonna you know potentially switch a few things up um dela Rosa is is really really good when he gets that ball up and out in front that's you know we've seen it time and time again where he's going but most of.

Those are coming off of a counter attack or or reset so if possible I'd like to see coop yo get into some of that cross-coding with Anna brought if she can they're using but you know if she can set up De la Rosa so right we're looking at a 64 34 win probability ranches overcome ours.

We're already starting to see that this MLP that yes it's a good indicator but the matches have been much closer compared to what the probability percentage is at yeah absolutely um and again that's on paper and that's why we don't play it on paper that's why we actually play it out bigger comebacks and bigger upsets.

All sports we'll see if the chimeras can pull this one out I mean in reality two points in a in a rally scoring is is nothing foreign Court winner it goes a little wide the idea is there and I think if he executes it and can keep it in it's.

There and it's gonna be a winner but it goes a little long and bright with the encouragement yelling at DJ young go CJ young wanted that back as soon as he hit it because he knew that De la Rosa was sitting on her typically when you when you hit those uh half speed half uh attempt speed UPS you regret it as soon.

As you're starting this way we've been there to do this ball was this a good speed for you to go oh it's just too good I want to read by De la Rosa he waits till the last second to go here almost after bright gets that ball yeah.

And bright bright instantly said it she's like I knew it knowing that maybe that she shouldn't have gone down the line on that one uh it's very difficult in especially in mixed doubles right because the woman's in front of in front of the male a little of the time you've got to go down the line to keep the male honest but you can't go what the what.

Was that spin like he's just inside out overhead yeah just full flick of the wrist hit that on the on the side uh but back to to the earnings in in man in mixed doubles you've got to uh you can only go down the line on the guy.

A lot of the time if you've already pulled them to the middle if they're there and they're in a position where they can just take one step and jump really tough to go down the lineup she wanted that back as soon as she pulled the tour she knew that was a little premature on pull.

Yeah and trying to hit that one with an open face paddle like she just did really really difficult to keep in the court Coop was there to cover but dealerosa trying to make something happen there in the middle and pick that off.

And the ranchers take a three-point lead here and the chimeras will burn a time out here as they feel the ranchers gaining some momentum in this game if the ranchers win they will theoretically win the match because they will have three victories we will play that fourth mixed doubles match for the tiebreakers.

Tiebreakers and point difference going into the playoffs so we will have another match no matter what but the ranchers looking to solidify the win with the win right here but what is Coop and De la Rosa need to kind of flip here on the side to kind of get back in here against the ranchers yeah they're they're still it's not that they're.

Making a ton of of errors because the numbers are still only up there at five but it's just they're they're not getting the quality balls that they need to to or that you need to have against bright and young right young is is stepping in is imposing himself your bride is is there and kind of setting.

Him up a little bit more Coop and Delarosa are hanging in there they they've had a couple of quick leads but never been able to like fully pull away or just do something like that just just right just stepping right in front of Anna bright all over the place Anna had.

Nowhere bright had no idea where to go right there chimeras can just hit balls that make DJ think he can get to them that's that's in your strategy oh oh bright trying to get that Ernie again right there that one was it would have been a cleaner one but she just.

Also didn't hit that ball as hard so Brad's timing was off just a little bit that she wasn't able to take the ball at the the height that she wanted to for that earning trying to sneak one on the backhand side of DJ young and he's having none of it right there no That Swing was it was so short so quick it.

I don't even think he took the paddle back at all it was just to lay the wrist back extend back forward foreign setup yeah which he has this the wingspan and the ability to to do that there.

1745 oh my ball checked up and went back wow it's tough right there for the chimeras tough break the ranchers will take a three-point.

Lead again here at 18-15 wow Taylor Rosa taking the ball off his hip to stay in that play yeah got the body out of the way put a paddle on it but then DJ Young on the second one again didn't try to hit it too high just added a ton of spin.

that's where young has to continue to live we've seen him do we he did a good job finishing off men's doubles he's done an excellent job here in mixed doubles of when he is going to be aggressive for him it's like a 70 80 percent for the majority of people that's a hundred.

Percent yeah but for him he has to live in that 70 80 range if he gets up that 95 and above not well even 90 and above we might see a ball bounce off the scoreboard well chimer's fight off one match point oh it's just too good right there great touch from DJ young and chimers will have to fight off another Match Point.

Here at 2016. 2016. yeah TJ young a great draw and then a good aggressive move after his drop to come in and put it away and the ranchers will take the overall match they will get on the board with a team Victory but we will go to this second and Final Mix.

Doubles matchup what was the difference for Brighton young there and the ranchers they would just clean it I mean they'll clean a tool at the end it was still aggressive but they they stepped it back just a little bit like we were talking about with DJ Young Living in that 70 to 80 percent range yo they're good and clean.

When they're living at that not trying to do too much when they get the put away but bright did a good job of setting up young and young set himself up as well but it was just really good clean pickleball all right well Cameron Blackwood is sidelined with Anna bright and DJ young take it away cam a 3-0 performance from the ranchers how are.

You able to establish so much dominance on such against an aggressive team like coopa De la Rosa well I'd say um you know Anna's been playing really good uh she's been meddling piano she's been doing everything so I'm just happy to hop on her back and uh just try and you know help the team out but she's definitely uh the OG that.

Wants to go we all fall of her so captain and Anna when you're getting pushed off the kitchen line by such aggressive dinks how are you able to stay effective and keep your team in the point um a big thing is not giving dela Rosa the Ernie you know trying not to do that and I probably shouldn't go off the.

Kitchen line so much I'm working on it but sometimes I get a little tight MLP there's nothing else like it I'm a little tight I'm coming off that line but don't worry leave the tournament I won't be doing that thanks back to you guys all right 3-0 victory for the Ranchers but we will go to this fourth and final.

The head to head says otherwise 74 in favor of ignatowiczika mota yeah I mean it it's kind of a common Trend uh between all eight of the matches that we've we've seen out here and obviously we've got blqk and we've got the ranchers the two teams that one all right we're looking at huge spreads on the Wind.

Probability here I think you know tadio and fudge it's gonna be it's it's a new partnership definitely not one that we've seen on the on the tour anywhere else so you know tadio is gonna gonna look to be aggressive but again it's going to come down to what we've spoken about before does he choose the right time for it.

Fudge can't can't try to pull the trigger too soon herself either she's got to stay in this allow tario to be the aggressor she plays the the supportive and set up role but ignado which and and Cal model they're still kind of finding their partnership as well yeah we all.

Foreign do one lead here early for the chimeras foreign quick flick down the line behind fudge catches her off guard that balls up there's nothing tario can do about that one.
