Uh is pickleball i'm coming so so tell me what's a what's a tip as a newbie that i should be expecting coming into the league you gotta draft.

Well number one graph pick is catherine parente hi y'all i'm brene brown with the austin pickleballers and we pick pat lot of smith it's all about the firefighting.

with women and men competing against each other in singles the dream breaker has changed the game of pickleball forever number one female number one male oh yes.

All right and we're back day two major league pickleball here at ttc newport beach california the fives taking on the bus and we jump into it chad edwards joined here by matt minassie matt what are you looking for out of these this matchup right here yeah first of.

All five's advice after this um obviously i think they're gonna uh eat five's gonna be isolating the rain there and this trap has got to come over and take a lot of balls in the middle see how it plays out good speed up there by milly rain.

Hard cross court yeah the only issue with stratman coming into the middle there both judging and podigameta able to hit that ball back behind stratman as well so we'll have to see how everybody kind of falls into that groove here so that uh third shot lob is something.

That that jojo's been working on for a while the new yolo pad will help him with a little bit more spin unfortunately take in that left foot on i think that's the pace of play that we want that the fives are going to be looking at going with quicker hands more imposing offensive style we're gonna look to take a turn.

Right over here ball jumping up off the net from rain podiga might say not able to keep that paddle down or get out of the way good spot right in the body good job drop from rain right there four five good movement by stratman great speed up there through the middle.

And then closing the gap with that ball goes next awesome awesome stuff from lauren stratton so the bus now able to tie things up at five firefight both sides going at it right now with the speed that's that power of stratman that we.

Talked about a little earlier rolling that down at the feet of rain great spot get all the way up against the net rain looking to pull out wide and judging finishing off with the atp so that's that's the issue so strap.

Continues to move towards the middle and shrink the court but that is what you're giving up right you're giving up that line by taking the court and simone took full advantage seven eight so.

Nice point great resetting of defense from patiga mighty there stradman went for the right shoulder that chicken wing a couple times and she was able to reset perfectly so the fives back up to a two-point lead 9-7.

Good counter from milly rayne right there not trying to go too big but keeping that ball down keeping it low and hard has been sitting on that forehand a little bit went right into the body there wasn't quite ready for it good read by rayne so we're seeing a.

Little different play style from her today compared to what we saw yesterday yeah yesterday she's a little passive not quite ready today she's coming out firing hands out in front early i'm strapping good finish by simone so the bus jumps ahead quickly but now.

We're back taught at 10 10. you're not typically going to see somebody reaching in with a two-handed backhand there like xiao jing did but podigamite set that up judging taking the advantage or the opportunity to come across and speed that up yep yeah right into the body and.

Rain a little off balance not ready for the uh the reset there or the counter and she knows if she leaves it up anywhere in the middle there that's going to be the pic of my day forehand right back at her so the 5's up 11 10 as we switch sides here.

And we're certainly seeing a faster pace women's doubles match to early this morning uh like we were talking about a little bit yesterday when we watched the the boss play yo stratman was trying to insert herself a lot more rain kind of slower tempo staying in that think a little bit longer today they're both looking to.

Really pull that trigger be aggressive totally all right ladies time in 11 10. strapman a little unfortunate they're getting that first speed up into the catching the net chord judging able to stay on the aggressive this money doing such a good job of using the outside of the court they're strapping really.

Leaning middle and exposing that open line rain's certainly got some power behind that forehand right there short compact swing ripping that ball i down that move i love the drive and follow.

It was a fantastic drive just a little bit better response from but 13 11 5's back up 13 11. that reach in we're kind of reenacting it at the at the beginning while we're down on the court we see the reaching by yeah she's able to really extend so far.

Into the kitchen there by getting so low so a little bit more than rain i think it's because she's really closing that middle a little more off balance and they're uh they're able to go with her and then kind of finish.

Stratman disappointed in herself with that one tough missing into the net once you brought it back within one still able to come into the body very good speeder yeah.

This money wanted a little more extension there i'm sure whatever rush that back we got a perfect spot there for strapping so we're back within one 14-15 excellent defense there from the bus both play is resetting unfortunately rayne missing that one.

Into the net 16 14. i'll tell you what the defense from both sides right here is pretty impressive i think that's one of the the biggest jumps that we've seen in pickleball over recent years is how big the focus on defense has become yeah well it's a natural patch of progression right so as the players are.

Getting more physical as the paddles are getting better the offense is getting better which is in turn defense must right so uh these players are getting physically stronger they're getting lower and yeah the the level in the last even i've been in this for two years has just exploded well for sure we're taking a.

Quick time out here from the from the bus i mean i've been in pickleball now for about eight years and looking at the paddles to what we started with and if you look even further past that to what the paddles were but even eight years ago the.

Paddles that we're playing with compared to what we're playing today it was very very hard to generate the power so you know a lot of it was just the the dinking game we're going through it you weren't really worried about how much or how hard that ball is coming back now as the technology is changing.

There's so much more power there's so much more spin so like you said natural progression that we're now going to have to focus on our defense how do we stay in the point how do we make that hit one more ball 100 and and people are speeding up and creating new ways of offense from positions that didn't really exist in the sport two years ago.

And some of the people on this court simone at the forefront is really inventing a lot of those shots and has been for the last couple years all right ladies we're now seeing balls from the shoelaces getting sped up over the net landing back in so the fives now up 18-14 within three.

boss had them scrambling all over the court right there unfortunately stratman missing that one in the net 19 14. want that one back good job by rain to battle off that poach by zhao jing i don't see many birds but there was one.

Going for the highlight reel awesome finish nice touch from from there making it look like she was going to be aggressive when i noticed their last point too we're talking about defense these.

Players are keeping their pedals so far everything's in front of their body nothing gets behind a lot of recreational players doing the opposite the first game point by the fives missing that one into the net 17 20. 18.

18 20. the both teams frozen now at 18 20. having a score on this server stratman coming across closing finishing off through the middle it's the only problem with isolating and targeting a certain player leave that open to someone leaning on.

That ball going early world side up the bus closing the gap 20 20. uh fight back.

Good reach in and speed up by stratman 20 20. still tied at 20s and the boss taking their first lead 21-20 we've got cameron blackwood down there sideline cameron what do you.

See that 18 1820 when lauren came over with that flying poach was a game changer they have a lot of momentum going in to finish out this match i think that was a good call timeout by simone she knows this game better than anyone slow it back down get them out of rhythm get.

Lauren calm down because they're wanting to get this first point in this matchup thanks cameron yeah definitely we're looking at you've just given up a 4.5 point lead right here you're now behind by one facing game point on the other side stratman coming in seymour all right newborn left here for these ladies how about this not been.

There i have not either but i tell you what she's made a splash when she came onto the tour definitely making herself known here milly rain boca raton florida a little bit more of the unknown player on the tour but definitely very accomplished time in.

21 20. so the bus here with their first game point good time out there then right to get that ball back i don't know about you matt but i can feel the pressure up here in the in the 20-21 trying to call rain off that one unfortunately we'll never know if that ball was going.

To go long but reigns missed wide so we're tied again at 21. five's up 22-21 let that one go well see if strap in the ring gets 21-22 oh another net ball.

Brain saying that's twice better lucky than good boy taking a step back and unleashing on that forehand i spoke about it a little bit yesterday it's hard enough getting this last point when you're playing regular scoring regular match let alone in this situation where you're only you've only.

Got one so good change of direction by stratman going behind yeah it's an excellent point i mean normally you get two chances you can strategize a little bit this one you feel like you don't capitalize right away you're just giving it all the way to the other team.

I mean that was an excellent drop by rain good setup but again padiga just taking a step back from the kitchen line and unleashing on that ball yeah it gives her a little bit extra time 22-21 again her weights on the front foot and then she can rip good ball movement by the bus.

Over here six save match points attention you're talking about i feel like 122. oh is not getting cheated on her swings right now that's for sure not at all 22-21 game point again for the fives.

defense great point again reigns batman great footwork put a little oh in the middle of that potentially judging's ball going a little wide range.

Playing it but stratman says doesn't matter i'm gonna step in and put it away so we're taught again 22s it's a struggle to take this one little miscommunication between stratman and reign 22-23 might be a long day if this is how the day is gonna go.

i think they're strategizing all right come down the middle i got this dude shot this time and the bus take it again with stratman excellent setup drop from rayne stratman reading that ball going back cross caught closing quickly and putting it through so.

The fives got off to an early lead but the bus closed it held on a couple of mat of game points and then came storming back taking it themselves we've got cameron blackwood down on the sidelines with our winners cameron tied up 20 20 20 20 20 21 21 the entire.

Time how were you able to close that out um it was similar to what we did yesterday milly played solid as rock i made some really dumb decisions but ultimately some of the risks paid off and we came out on top how are you able to overcome when you're getting some let cords and they're getting those free points well.

Honestly i have to thank the crowd for super cheering on those because it really fired me out more and i wanted to win that much more there you go and really how important is it for you to stay aggressive against a team like lena and simone oh lauren told me to swing away don't be nervous and that's what i did.

They have it buses up one to zero we're on to men's doubles back to you guys thanks cameron so we're gonna take a quick break here when we return we've got men's doubles here at major league pickleball newport beach california to find supplements that work.

Days you happy hour here you the knock around custom shop you designed them we built them we heard you missed us we're back so we're back here major league pickleball newport beach california the.

Bus taking the first one women's doubles now up 1-0 as we switch to men's doubles we'll take a look at the bus kyle yates finalist for a hall of fame this year fort myers florida known kyle for a number of years yeah he's one of the one of the goats of the.

Game really finding his game i think in the last year again kind of another resurgence i think about a year and a half ago was getting a little bit i don't know not tired but not so you know get rid of what the sport is is now and.

Uh now he's fully back playing some big time pickleball we'll take a look here at his stats 6.55 dupa 20th ranked duper ranking we take a look at his partner wes burrows out of thousand oaks california 6.31 dupa ranked 44th matt you know west.

Pretty well yeah play with wes all the time he actually kind of introduced me to the sport introduced me to everyone out here in la west is way under the radar this was a huge get for the bus in my opinion and uh he's he's a one of the best athletes on tour i would say so we'll take a look.

Here at rob ninery of the fives rob coming back from a injury after new york having some work done on his meniscus 15th ranked duper rating out of dripping springs texas and his partner eric lang definitely a big body guy out there.

Westland oregon 6.37 duper 33rd ranked eric's one of those guys that is just imposing as far as his size and his wingspan just solid out there dink all day don't want to put the ball too close to the line we've got cameron blackwood standing by caught side cameron what do you got for.

Us talking this morning with the bus i was talking to kyle and west and they are ready to go they said that it is all gas no breaks but on the other side we have eric and rob talked to rob he said he's still feeling good like you said yesterday's knee was about 70.

But you could not tell on the court so i think it's gonna be a great match up it's gonna be everyone's gonna have to find the pattern i see it going one one two two it's gonna be a break it's gonna be hard to see who's gonna get a breakaway with certain patterns and strategies in this match thanks cameron as we get started here.

Rob nunnery going to serve for the fives zero zero point one going up 2-0 quickly 2-0 0.3 so the fives don't have definitely have some consistency.

With these two guys a little bit too big i think not really getting into the stink rallies slowing it down looking for the opportunity just crashing a little too hard and down 4-0 to start is not what they wanted 4-0 the ball just sailing a little deep from yates the sky's the speed up well.

Big man eric lane getting out of the way cleaning up with the backhand six zero here trying to get things fired up good exchange there got sam query in attendance scott derner in the audience big time tennis players gotta get their guy.

in this format down 8-1 you can still come back we just saw it in the women's doubles anything's possible with the rally scoring good ball from borrows doesn't try to do too much with it but.

Just slides it through the middle yeah they seem to be trying to test nunnery's hands early and he's passing every test with flying colors rob does a very very good job of staying really short everything's going through that ball.

Kind of sliding a little bit nunnery missing that one into the net three nine bus at three nine now yeah that's a ball i think usually before pre-knee surgery's going back and getting yates was smart with that one lang's jumped out of the way of a couple of.

Those speed-ups yeah yeah just adds more spin yeah yates body was going middle so just like that we're now on a six to two run back for the bus as they're back within three six nine and it's the softer ball that throws a.

Little change up there throwing off the timing of yeah 11-6 and again it was that little slower ball that slower speed up up in the body that caught west just like before that slower ball that got yates uh for those at home it's not always about power it's about.

Placements about making sure your opponent's off balance right now lang and none are doing a great job of that we've got cameron blackwood down sidelines cameron yes they're really the bus here is really excited for the game change i said it's a little bit harder to see the.

Ball off of rob nunnery's paddle as you can see it has more of a kaleidoscope look to it so they're really looking forward to switching sides i think the sun was definitely a factor so they're not worried at all they're looking to get some points here in this match thanks cameron like you said anything's possible with this rally scoring.

The bus down seven early scraping a few back 11-6 for the five yeah right into that right shoulder let's try pulling off just couldn't catch it in time some power from sides of the pancake grip there from lang.

Very very reach in from both burrows and yates to finish that point 7 13. awesome athleticism there from burrows saying i got it 8 13. catching the net there lang able to change speeds quickly getting back on top of.

That ball uh i don't mind the idea but just sat up a little bit too much there i'm not i think he forced the issue a little too low position there and none are just sitting on that easy the fives now extending their lead back up seven.

Fifteen eight definitely one thing we're seeing here the last two days it's taking five six sometimes seven overheads to end these points really finding that square paddle face.

Every single much better spot ball set up a little bit higher and he was able to really drive through to the outside of nunnery that that right position 17 10.

there a little bit with that shoulder ball yeah that exposed a little bit you know he's not fully back 70 i believe cameron blackwood said earlier at least he got there.

That ball potentially going out lang not able to lay off it seemingly from anywhere and again his fans that came out today are pumped sam cleary former 11 atp tennis player in the world wimbledon semifinalist here are supporting his guy.

And the bus so the bus able to close the gap back within four or fives taking a quick timeout got cameron down sideline cameron what are your thoughts the and change was crucial for them like.

They said off of rob's paddle with the sun it was just a huge glare they were not seeing the ball clearly so now that they're on this side they're looking to get some points on the board and take this match the bus trying to come back and close it out like the women just did the fines trying to hold on to this one.

They don't want to give up another big lead to two games in a row that would be uh mentally and uh right now they're they're the ones all gas no breaks so we'll see shout out to cameron blackwood i stole that one all right gentlemen time in 13 17.

Good spots good speed from yates 14-17 very similar to what we just saw with the ladies trying to go for a little too much to try to close this one out start spraying some balls missing a couple of balls deep.

I think he thought his third was sitting up a little higher than it was get in and follow that ball a little prematurely so the five's within two now just leaving that ball in.

Within reach but alas yeah you could see burrows kind of moving off the line back to the sideline of the court as opposed to really covering that middle so first game point for the fives they'll say a little wide.

climb back into it like their ladies did in it so the men of the fives taking this one 21-17.

On their second game point evening it back up now 1-1 what did you see from this one that was the big difference i just think lange and none are just the more solid team i thought burroughs and yates just didn't really have a solid game plan they would speed it up.

At times they would slow it down at times there was just no solid consistent plan um and solidness proved to be the the winning note at the end there yeah borrows and yates definitely like we said the.

Ability to be more aggressive but lang and nunnery just so solid so composed throughout that whole one we're going to throw it down to cameron blackwood with our winners you guys started the match up 8-1 then you got another lead of 17-10 what was the strategy going into this match i mean they're a dynamic team they drive.

The ball a lot we've crashed it that hard they're very difficult players you know we have pretty fast hands so we're trying to counter that do our best and uh rob was a rock beside me today so it's fun to get this done with him and speaking of countering what are you looking for in their paddle for you to be able to counter those balls and get.

Those winners i hope they hit to my backhand and they did a lot he did when they went to the forehand they got me but uh they kept coming to my backhand which is kind of like where i said so uh no it was great um getting leads tough like rally scoring is tough to close it's a test and closing out matches so i'm just glad we were able to.

Do it there you have it it is now 1-1 with the fives on the bus going into mixed doubles back to you guys thanks cameron and we're going to take a quick break here from ttc newport beach california when we come back we'll have our first mixed doubles matchup.

Major league pickleball are we ready to get this started live we're coming to you from dripping springs texas we have received thomas wilson is so.

Fast oh dj with the behind the back wow just caught the back oh my goodness gracious wow wow that was crazy ovation on that shot you have to stay the same.

Want a perfect pair of sunglasses for your every occasion hit up the knock around custom show with over a million possible combinations why not get a pair for every you 8 a.m i need a coffee you clocking a few miles you game day you happy camper you fun in the sun you on the slopes you dog days you happy hour.

The knock around custom shop you designed them we built them we picked nyc to announce mlp is back doesn't ring a bell how about now we're major league pickleball and the only thing growing faster than this city's skyline is our sport pickleball as the fastest-growing sport in the.

Clemson the fastest growing sport in america fastest growing sport in america you think they've got the best street meat well our street meats aren't too bad either they've got a garyvee we've got a garyvee pickleball i'm coming.

Nyc is a melting pot of awesomeness so are we some men some women some young some old but at the end of the day all heart and we both believe that fortunes are gained on the trading floor especially when some of the biggest influencers in the world also happen to be our owners.

wrap that in the highest prize money in pickleball and well there's nothing else like it new york's not so bad either major league pickleball there's nothing else like it we're back here major league pickleball.

In newport beach california chad edwards matt manassi joining me here in the booth as we're split here 1-1 between the bus and the fives going into our first mixed doubles match up we've got west burrows and lauren stratman for the bus taking on rob nunnery and simone joe.

Jing matt what are you looking for out of these these two match-ups oh no because the first two matches went completely different than i thought it was gonna happen but uh you know you got two you know explosive player men on both sides and then very talented women just gonna see how it unfolds.

I think that's three games in a row that we've seen that first ball going into the net one zero yeah that's not a good position from nunnery there trying to speed up especially it borrows yeah i think for for boro especially in mix that's where he kind of shines can.

Take over a lot of the court speed it up all around it so a little miscommunication there from zhao jing and nunnery on the burroughs drive two one oh.

There's the scorpion from west how to just reset the ball and slowly maneuver her way into the kitchen line for those at home right you might not get in on the first ball it might take three four four six balls to get in she showed you how to do it right there.

So the bus up 3-1 now good reaching from with his left foot i've seen that a few times already the last two days stratton against some love from the net hey.

setting that up with the the first reach in rolling that ball back we're tied again at fours good spot from borrow a couple of balls sailing long for the fives the bus now up by three seven four.

driving himself borrows trying to close but non-nuri said none of that half overhead massive angle from borrows right there.

honorary unsure how to play that one as it skipped off the net the bus up five so jumping ahead 11-5 as we switch ends they really seem to be working well.

Together as a team too and they've played together in other events not just here at major league pickleball and it seems to be showing early on we've got cameron blackwood down sideline cameron what are your thoughts on what.

Nunnery and jia jing need to change going in on this side change yeah i mean thank goodness they have this break right here i'd say call a timeout anyways because lauren and wes are just gelling right now they're understanding each other's games they're figuring out where the other one's going i think right now what they need to do.

Is slow it down have simone start setting up some points i think they're going to firefight and it's just not working right now so have simone slow it back down do some cross courts with lauren maybe go behind wes a little bit see if they can't create a point versus playing lauren and wes's game because they're losing right now.

Thanks cameron yeah absolutely right now stratman and burrows are winning the fire fights they're speeding that ball up they're getting it going and nunnery needing to cool off that fire a little bit time in 11-5 so the bus now up 6 11 5.

Defense resets back in really good point they're working together so well around so well even when they're speeding it up look on it strapman's already moved away from the ball.

that she's human for the first time six points here are phenomenal right now two really good speed ups from none she just acted like it was nothing counter attacked it straight up straight away she's so good with that forehand.

She can really get under the ball roll it a couple different spots better position for nunnery going across the body of stratman there need to see that more coming from nunnery so.

good love by stratman it's really good strappings forehand dank has so much on it but you have to respect that ball coming off the court so you're leaning in there she goes for the lobe connor is somehow getting those balls back and then.

Getting a nice little kick off the net age 15. borrows another exchange oh smart play by stratman day you can see he's got some tape on the hamstring that's one of the injuries that she's been dealing with we've got nunnery that's coming back for meniscus surgery.

So definitely taking advantage of some potential restraints injury-wise and that was such a quick shot selection there west turning to the booth just saying strapman's too good i got my partner is too good out there unbelievable.

So we've got the boss now up 16-9 we got cameron down sideline cameron still strapping and borrows just too strong yeah especially after that last point with lauren with the lob and then the the nice little drop there i turned to julie and i said gosh what did laura eat.

For breakfast this morning he goes wheaties deal she's ready for this so they're locked in i they want to win today like today's a big day for these players and they know it and they settle in a little bit more today yesterday it's hectic it's new they settle in and you can tell that they are locked in.

Ready to take this match thanks cameron yeah definitely win or go home situation here for both the fives and the bus if someone could get me a bowl of those wheaties that would be great i'd eat those every day so stratton.

Is looking to continue their lead up 16-9 16-8 i should say you've seen burrows really settling in this game a lot better than he did in the men's doubles he's finding these resets he's comfortable in the thinking for him.

Big backhand for nunnery good hand exchange from both sides get back around from that one but i tell you what he surprised me when he came in and and flicked that one 10 17. i'll pick.

Kind of smile sticking his tongue out made it look like he was gonna go around the post and i was gonna say that would have been very ambitiously very ambitious i don't think it was there knew it wasn't there so she got a little confused so the five's making a little bit of a run for it now.

Back within five 12 17. 12 17. the tempo of the game has slowed down a little bit this these last few points burroughs staying in that cross court.

Very well choosing the right time to speed up exchange with the tanks not let stratton speed it up with that forehand good spot for borrows the ball is sitting up just a little bit from zhonjing burrows recognizing it.

Able to reach in roll that ball just inside the basement and the bus with their first game point here at 2013.

Jumping ahead on it to a 2-1 lead they worked together as a team they were speeding the balls up at the right time stratman's hands were absolutely insane and west took over with a lot of great athleticism there at the end so we've got cameron blackwood down without winners cameron you guys were locked in from the beginning led the.

Entire match what was the discussion between you two before this match well luckily before this match we got a special backpack so that lauren fit me inside of it and carry me through the first half and then i got it through a couple points at the end there and that was pretty much all we had.

Lauren you were locked in i turned to julian after you had a nice lob and then a drop i said what did she eat for breakfast he has wheaties but how are you able how are you able to stay in that zone where you just are aware of every aspect going on in this match yeah the only thing i'm focusing on is just the next.

Point so i try not to let my mind go in the past or in the future so you can just stay in the moment it makes it a little bit easier it looked really easy oh no no no nice job those lobs look so easy for you oh my god it was amazing amazing there you have it the bus is up two to one going into the next mixed doubles back to you.

Take this one and force this to the dream breaker they got to stay solid i think they're they have the more power uh of the two teams out here yates and rain are more athletic more they're going to try to really make this a physical match lengthen these stinking rallies.

But uh again in a game to 21 it's really how you start uh can you get out to the lead can you hold your composure obviously anything can happen in this format to 21. i'm still shocked karim and dulcevar is here.

Starting us off first exchange there from the farms not a bad bad position to speed up from but a little more difficult without your feet being set correct those things.

Passive things and active things are definitely alive couldn't see it from our angle but that ball just going wide speeding it up just a fraction late it's going a little wide himself coming back.

both those balls if they land in no chance of getting those ones back so we're seeing yates really pressuring that side of rain in this one full court movement full court coverage for.

Oh almost almost yates charging the around the pulse from fedigamate and one it almost hit her two it almost came back in good spots from lang right there using his size using his reach.

Yeah if you're that tall you have to come across the middle and take that ball so the 5's up 7-3 now as well from lang considering it's coming through the middle and moving so much good reset from yates on the first one lang just staying.

Super aggressive into his body there so the fives back up to a five point lead nine four so good exchange good positioning good directional play from the fives yeah they're really isolating rain and i think it might take him a great job really pulling her off those danks.

It's such a small window to go to if she goes really good movement good control of the kitchen line and the fives now up seven.

Eleven four we're gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood's sideline cameron what are you seeing here from from both teams one thing i'm seeing from lena which most people probably don't attempt to do but she's speeding up cross court and a lot of people don't do that but she is being very aggressive in that move and.

It's working for her she's really targeting millie they both are but sometimes the speed up cross court works if you can be there for the counter and they're both finishing that ball on the other end millie has to get aggressive she plays her best she can't play passive this time she needs to go back.

And remember what how she played in women's doubles and bring that into her mixed doubles thanks cameron yeah absolutely starting to see that milly rain is is back on the heels a little bit more not as aggressive lulling back into that easy cross-court dank and.

Potigamate is just able to reach in and really set the pace and then langs there to use that big body and clean it up certainly not the same player that we saw in women's doubles done such a good job having that backhand out in front really getting it all right.

Eleven around the pulse from yates coverage from lang and then rain there to clean it up great move there from i'm okay with that reigns trying to get that footing that.

Feeling again of being aggressive with it lang just too good too i think it might definitely got some power behind his over here up i think yates has to potentially allow.

To take that next ball because it's the second time that they've gone back behind him yeah i don't know how i missed it for the last five points.

But rain playing on the left yates playing on the right i looked up and i was like hold on a second that's that's not how it was yates actually used to doing that i was watching a couple weeks ago here in newport play mixed actually sometimes plays the right side and does a good job of taking over from.

That side with the uh we're gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood caught cameron what are you seeing yeah i think because linna was reaching in and attacking the lacrosse court they decided to go straight up with her i don't think it's going to be much different i think now lynn is going to.

Speed up down the line i think millie's just really trying to get her range right now it's really hard when you're playing a little bit less aggressive to then going to be aggressive your timing is off so i think she's just really trying to find it unfortunately it's just a little bit later in this game to do so i think they just need to go back.

To basic pickleball grind out these points and see if they can't climb back in this match so we're taking a quick look at the group a standings right now with the fives and the bus both one and one the fives win it.

They go through the bus wins it they go through great spot there from the eights at the feet of the tall man right foot side out 17. yeah he's just stepping on the kitchen line.

He's going across for that half but there you go slide across or run across but again just too strong from podigamate jumping that ball over lang's paddle i think that's a that's a hard thing for.

Yates he wants he wants to control yeah that's a push but you can't force especially in this situation from the right side really going to be able to do so much off balance there with that backhand fives up by 11. two away from taking this one and forcing the dream breaker.

Nine nine 20. paul just wide from yates second game point coming up for the fives and i'll tell you what if the fives win this one at women's doubles loss is going to come back to them.

Lang not able to hit that round the post looks like the posts are just a little wider with these these square posts that we've got here at ttc side out looking to close it out again and with this scoring right now the fives of frozen can only score on their.

Serve the bus though until they get to 18 is still going to continue on rally scoring 12. it's always dangerous one stop at a time and then you get the ball back no pressure ball just clipping the net and going wide.

let's go five oh core coverage holy cow all over the court on that one from the five's taking that one 21-12 now forcing the dream breaker and we've got gabriel tardio out on the court.

Looks like he's going to step in there for rob nunnery got a little bit of yates talking with commissioner brooks not too sure what he's discussing right now but he looks like he's he's a little heated i think he's upset that uh.

Tardio's coming in in his stead for singles here unsure if that's legal or the right thing to do but as we see target warming up ready to rock and we will send it down to cameron blackwood with our winners.

Cameron you guys came into this match down one two how are we able to gain the momentum back to now 2-2 going into the dream breaker you know simone and rob had a rough match um i i know they have their best in the rounds yet to come you know lynn and i just went out there and did our thing.

Bring our team back to the stream breaker and now it's time to close so not not done yet but it's nice to get that one and when you're playing a team you're having a lot of success with milly cross court they change it up on you does your strategy change when the opponents switch it up no i think our strategy was to keep our foot on the gas.

And just keep at it yeah there we go we'll let you guys get to the dream breaker there you have it two to two going to the dream breaker back to you guys thanks cameron so we're gonna take a quick break and rejoin action here major league pickleball in newport beach california.

For our dream breaker it's hard to find supplements that work no thank you you need supplements that are backed by science with natural and plant-based ingredients and that are third-party tested because cleaner is better.

Around custom shop you designed them we built them oh and we're back here in major league pickball newport beach california.

Getting ready for our dream breaker a little bit of controversy during the break cameron blackwood down sideline a little closer to the attribute action cameron what were you hearing down there so they're subbing out rob nunnery for this dream breaker and bringing in gabe tardio kyle and the bus are.

Not happy is an understatement kyle is fired up he just thinks to him he goes this is just not fair he played two matches now he's gonna sit out and now they're gonna bring in gabe who is an excellent singles player and he went and talked to brooks and said how does this make sense it is legal this isn't the rules that if you are injured you can go.

Ahead and sub in a singles player and rob is allowed to return if the fives were to move on in the matches later today so kyle not happy he just does not he doesn't think it's fair if rob played two and now you're bringing in a great singles player for this dream breaker so that's what i have on my end i will keep you updated thanks cameron we actually.

Saw that with blqk last night as well with paris todd getting injured so definitely well within the rules but if you match up tadio and nonneri single skill level wise tadio especially with a healthy knee yeah yeah i mean it definitely brings in a lot of complications uh.

Maybe they'll have to revisit that rulebook so we've got tardio going against burrows here for the first four and then we've got lang taking on yates today against stratman and ja jing against.

Rain much better ball much better court coverage by tardio on that one big boy singles pickleball here and just crash take over some space so splitting it here at twos.

We'll see yates taking on lang yates a pretty good singles player still and in his prime as well lang doesn't play singles as much yeah this this matchup could be.

Problematic for the fives it's lange i thought yates had kept him off balance enough going behind him very well but three degrees too big of a reach taking that one.

so we may have a challenge on this one lang calling that ball wide yeah definitely from outside not something that we can call the referee's on our side how can ponder overrule when he's standing.

Okay so now the referees overruled that one so yates and the bus get their challenge back so now lang is going to challenge lang is now going to challenge the overrule from.

Ron panda by the way we're getting a challenge in this yeah i think okay this a little bit of wishful thinking there from lang but it is.

all right we're still split here at 4-4 let's see what podigamete can do against one of these two looking to jump ahead think we're going to see stratman's definitely the more seasoned.

Singles players she's going to move the ball around a lot more but padiga might say he's just going to keep the pressure getting in there and obviously love to see strapping trying to do the same find a shorter ball take a mighty into a corner and get in see if she can do it here so the fives.

Going up by two six four now not sure if that ball is gonna go out or not there but stratman trying to reach up and take it missing it into the net the fives are up by three again this is do or die you lose you go home you win you go through to the quarters.

Much better ball from extracting down the lawn good footwork there to get balanced set up absolutely laced that ball down the line taking on right now.

Is starting to pick up just a little bit probably not going to look to close rain needs to try to move her around yeah that was a very good ball just able to curl that ball back across sometimes beats good unbelievable angle to find that spot.

About the only spot she could hit it so now the fives up by four good hands by borrow trying to get around that create some type of third shot drop the angle to the fourth quadrant.

So we're switching sides here 11-7 the bus up five gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood cameron what do you think is going to be the difference in this dream breaker for the two teams i think that the bus needs to get emotion out of this match right now i think they came into.

The dream breaker really emotional was taking it personal that rob was out they put gabe in and and they didn't settle in so i'm looking for this next go-round on this change over them to settle in they're great singles players over there go back pick out your shots and climb back in this dream breaker let's make it exciting.

Big sur from tardio catching the line sliding down on burrows so now the five's up five short sweet rip it down the line not sure i think i'm speechless after that.

That was the thing of beauty gabriel i'm looking like 110 pound soaking wet but you'd hit it at 110 miles an hour let's get by yates and again a little too much power on the end 14 7. lang trying to run around that backhand.

So the bus trying to make up the six-point deficit here 8-14 good spot for the eights taking it early took time away from lange lane couldn't even get to that split step before that ball was by him 9 14.

Much better strategy in that one okay as far as being aggressive stretching laying out i don't know what to say i mean stratman hits his slice coming back.

Much better yeah added more spin and less power and the ball almost didn't even make it to the baseline very smart for a strap in there so the boss and stratman.

Coming back within three now trying to close this gap even more 15. 16 12. the start of the controversy get a ball from milly rayne.

Applied some pressure getting in money come up with something 13 17. 18. so the fives back up five 18 13 18 judging trying to sneak another one here rayne trying to inch them back closer that ball's a little d.

So the five's within two now here get some deep returns and followed in 19 13. on the run fifteen nineteen good read good angle.

On the run tadio just slapping that ball back cross caught either on the line or just to close it out here and send the fives to the quarterfinals 2015. says nope now this.

Becomes interesting so not only does lang have to win a point off of yates right here just to get the sub back then he's got to win 17 20. my goodness all over the court.

so the fives and eric lang again looking to close this one out lane certainly putting in the effort here so now both teams frozen 18 20. so we're going third match point now for the five 2018 stratman trying to hold.

Off again the fives taking this one 21-18 moving on to the quarterfinals we spoke early on about if this goes to the dream breaker the fives have the have the disadvantage with a couple of injuries right we just didn't expect this thing.

To the substitution of tadio no one gave us those notes and tardio was the difference obviously coming in for nunnery an injured nunnery and uh came up big against burroughs in a couple of those points but looks like cameron irwin is down with that substitute that awesome player i mean cameron blackwood's apologies.

Matt just got himself in trouble right there that's why i don't do it cameron blackwood down with the winners gabe tardy on all the fives the fives are moving on what is the strategy going into the dreambreaker and when was the decision made to bring in gabe so pretty much rob.

And i were playing rock paper scissors shoot to see who was gonna take a sub uh i mean we got a lot of experience but with experience also the body wears out a little bit uh why not you know one of us because we could we tried to to do both but we couldn't uh so you know why not bring somebody young and that can play i mean i know great.

Gabe and he can play so that's awesome and gabe you did play did you have any warm up or were you coming in cold uh like five minutes warm up with georgia in the back courts over there it's pretty early in the morning i just woke up like 30 minutes ago so you know not too good of a warm up but.

Happy to be here and uh let's go fives 30 minute warm up or 30 minutes just waking up five minute warm up fives are moving on congratulations you guys back to you in the booth thanks cameron well certainly the fives excited to be moving on.

And we've got the pro xr point of the match coming from linda padigamate the two-handed roll back behind lauren stratman to close it out for the fives certainly playing her part in this victory just too good so we're gonna take a.

Quick break and when we come back we're going to rejoin the action here at championship court between the flare florida smash and chimeras i'm gonna say she's a solid three five nah she's definitely a 2.5 guys look at that forehand she's clearly.

we're back here the ttc major league pickleball with florida smash in the chimeras whipwall.

Michelle esquivel and lee whitwill for the florida smash lee well the mvp from austin fan favorite and the smash making it to the finals there in austin looking to get their weight make their way back there taking on.

Andrea coop and megan fudge for the chimeras andrea the first ladies pick in the draft for this 2022 season she's playing some great great pickleball and megan fudge coming on in the last year big tennis background played at illinois and really finding her game.

Finding the nuances of pickleball and a great addition here to mlp i will say the coop has probably one of the meanest competition face faces out there she's definitely out there to win so again this is another.

Win or go home situation we're now in pool b and with this one all four teams in pool b are one and one so again the smash.

Trying to get back to the finals after finishing second and losing a boqk in austin chimeras making up for austin and not making the finals there rob cassidy on the screen right now was our player of the day yesterday.

Cassidy with the unorthodox holding of the paddle they're almost like a ping-pong paddle you find them on the ground more often than you do standing up yeah that's that's the background for for cassidy there for for sure i think at one point yesterday i was watching men's doubles.

Cassidy you can still see the slide marks on there a little bit couple of layers of skin cassidy slides across from the right dela rosa dives full body layout from the left so these players definitely leaving it all out on the court as we see lee whitwall j.w johnson having a little.

Chat as andrea coop so our first matchup coupe and fudge against whitwall and esquivel what are we looking what are you looking at to see out of both teams here matt when coop's the most aggressive player on the court in my opinion she can really take over um.

With fudge just a solid solid player on her side she's going to be really just playing her role in letting coop take over lee whitwell lee woodwall's lee woodwall i hope she doesn't step in the kitchen a few times on some of those ernies but you know she's going to try.

Just like any all these matches it's a dream it's a game to 21. it's gonna be tough but i think coop's gonna be the one to take over early and i'm gonna look for that from her what do you think yeah i definitely think coop's gonna be the deciding factor in this one if she can impose herself insert herself into these points fudge setting her up.

I think that's going to be the difference here coops off her game a little bit potentially allow whitwell and esquivel back into it but i i think for this one with the the coop factor yeah i i think it's it's a bit of an uphill battle for for the smash but then again you know we've already seen it this.

Morning no lead is big enough nope when you get into these situations where you've got one team frozen the other team's still rolling with that rally scoring it certainly allows that team to get back in and then once you're at 18 20 and both teams are frozen i mean it's only a two year game from.

That point and it's anyone's at that point yeah so we're getting ready here for our mixed doubles match-up mr roddy calling out wrong names there to the crowd no one from the broadcast ever messes up names.

Including myself not like matt minassi just called cameron blackwood cameron owen she's still down there she actually came up to me the break she's like please give matt a hard time for calling me cameron owen i said don't worry i think he feels bad enough i do.

You can feel the energy right now all these players are ready to go they know loss sends them home so the loss for the smash yesterday against team clean and a dream breaker.

And then the loss for the chimeras against hot eights and then the smash go and beat the eights transitive property and chimera's gonna beat the cleans the clean so team clean so that's how we ended up in that 1-1 situation there and.

We're getting ready to start here megan fudge for the chimeras starting us out so the smash getting the first point on the board michelle esquivel to serve 1-0 to andrea coop telling me i've got to talk a little quieter but unfortunately i have to speak up so the microphones will pick us up with this one.

Here for the florida smash being traded for andrea's sister maggie romanzi coming over from team clean good exchange there between esquivel and fudge fudge just staying nice and relaxed nice and calm resetting those balls very quiet with the body letting.

The hands do the work with the defense i mean she's a reset machine right now getting away with a little chicken wing long yup really sits in that backhand incredible love there oh.

Sometimes you just have too much time out there right yeah better ball from esquivel there going hard into the body of megan fudge good reaching was a little unknown factor in this one as well i mean she's sneaky she can she can generate some power she can flick some balls at you.

usually known as a defensive player but uh coming out a little bit more offensive here a little bit going at the first so we're all tied up here at five five.

Well coming across trying to close the middle a little bit fudge recognizing it taking that back hands back behind them six five that quickness that coupe possesses there she can do that from both sides that forehand or the two-hand quick snap.

Of the wrist ball just a little wide obviously the lefty there you don't see that too much from a backhand wing so very good ball control and movement from the chimeras right now yeah working very well as a team.

Fudge leaning off that ball finding that backhand wing very well attacked uh excellent defense not out by much certainly testing esquivel right now.

Seeing how long she can stay in these exchanges clear frustrations come here you know she never hits the same spot.

Twice she's definitely good at creating the angles but she'll them left shoulder to the right she'll let it to the middle most players want to try to keep hitting that ball as hard as you can through the baseline and it doesn't always work you can push your opponents back first right with the hard overhead through the.

Middle it does open up that space wide and she's coming from a tennis background obviously those are the dimensions of the court knows so the smash grabbing a couple of points back but.

The chimera is jumping up 11 8 as we go to the change of ends so we look at the match-ups here as of yesterday florida smash at a team duper 24.32 an average of 6.08 chimeras 24.04 and 6.01 so on paper not a whole lot separates them but if.

You look at on the men's side with jw johnson travis retin meyer jw johnson with the highest duper rating within the mlp teams at 6.91 travis retmi really come on in as of late the more that he plays at a 6.45 and then you've got daniel de la rosa and rob cassidy almost identical and then coop.

The second highest female in mlp with a 5.95 and megan fudge with a 5.37 so that equaling out between the men and the women is what's really making this close on paper and we're seeing the women of the chimeras up now 11 8.

Missing that ball wide so getting out of the way a little pancake rip not too much one thing esquivel did better there then that's probably the first time we've seen it this match is she moved her body.

She moved her feet rather than trying to stay staggering on it unfortunately you see a slight gap out wide and then you try to rush that ball cross-court tough to do we're going to take a timeout here smash we're gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood remember matt that's.

Blackwood down courtside yes i am usually on the other side of the net against these ladies on a weekly basis it's a very similar matchup though as you can see megan fudge has dialed in those resets a lot like lee so you have these two that sit in and you're speeding up and they just reset reset.

And then you have the more aggressive players like michelle and coop like you said andrea's the game changer here she can really make this match happen for the chimeras what i would like her to do though is not speed it up at michelle so much they're they can get beat she's now sliding and countering with her forehand jamming up lee on the.

Other side i would like them to go maybe behind push coupe on her backhand a little bit more just to change some patterns up i think they're going to coop a lot and she's handling it well let's go to coop and see if they can't push her back a little bit and create something that they can get a pop-up on thanks cameron yeah definitely.

Definitely uh fudge stepping it up with the defensive side of it i mean her resets have just been on point attacking her a couple of times resetting it that ball just going to sailing a little long from escobar i don't think the smash need to spread that ball out a little bit more go behind could keep her.

Honest and then you're able to open up that middle and a spot for rick wells feeding it up into the body of fudge yeah football can come across with that that lefty stroke it gives it a little different when she does speed it up.

unfortunately that last one she just got jammed a little bit the face opened up too much good speed up from coop between the between the legs there for the winner so the chimera is up by 5 15 10.

i don't know when she was walking when she was pumping those fists but i she was getting fired up after that roll really great deception there was coming left shoulder it definitely went right an excellent job from coop to keep that.

Ball in somehow i like that play in there that footwell reached in and flipped that one back as opposed to kind of just staying in that cross-court tank valley leaving some things up better job by escobar moving that ball around one to the backhand one to the forehand.

Does such a good job with that left hand on that back bring it down and across starting to find some confidence here a little bit of a strut in her step 14 16. 17.

Not bad balls from from coop and fudge right there but esquivel all over it so smash back within 3 14 17. 1814.

She's gonna yell at you soon so chimera is within two now good angle from coop got him spread a little bit lee was a little late there i'm covering the middle so first game point here for the chimeras.

Esquivel just can't string them together right now a little roll there from coop she knew it was coming almost too early on it is getting their seconds game point opportunity.

got that ball into the body of whitwell but unfortunately he's missing that last one into the net and just like that now we're back within two so both teams frozen now can only score on their serve they did a great job knowing that ball.

Was coming at her keeping that paddle out in front swinging a miss good recovery by escobel after whitwell came across and swung and missed that one the third game point for chimeras.

To hold off again 18 20. no right idea right angle from whitwell just pushing it a little wide so we've seen a couple of matches earlier between the fives and the bus with this back and forth.

Now we're at fourth game point for chimeras that ball sails long so chimera is taking this first one 21-18 matt what do you think the reasons behind the chimera's success were for that one yeah they were they were the aggressors i thought they could do a little bit more with the ball push.

The dinks around and again we said koopa's gonna be the difference maker and at the end she's the one that goes for the speed up and gets it done so just a little bit more options for them out there and uh excited for this men's matchup right now with one of the best players in the world here jw johnson.

We're going to throw it down to cameron blackwood who's caught side with our winners andrew when you're playing a team like lee and michelle and they have so much motion they thrive on emotion how are you able to neutralize that and win the match honestly i was a little bit more.

Reserved than it was yesterday afternoon because i know that michelle especially feeds on drama she likes it so trying to be mellow and play our game against her um i was a little surprised actually with how they played that not that they played well i knew they'd play well but lee was taking a lot of the court and.

I i guess we thought it would be the opposite that we would be really working that left side more trying to find trying to find lean trying to keep it away from michelle but lee was everywhere yes she was yes it seemed that you reset almost a hundred balls what are you looking for in the.

Opponent's paddle before they hit that speed up for you to counter i mean it's pretty much 100 sure that they're coming at me more than andrea so i feel like this is coming i just gotta be ready i knew um andrea had talked to me a little bit about tactics and and resets were going to be really crucial today so we drilled it a lot and i was just like had.

That mindset that that's what i was going to be i was going to be a wall you were a wall there you have it come here is up 1-0 heading into men's doubles back to you guys thanks cam we're going to take a quick break and then we'll join the men's doubles action back here.

In newport beach california i'm gonna say she's a solid three-five nah she's definitely a 2.5 guys look at that forehand she's clearly a 3.0 guys come on i'm at least the 4-0 yeah yeah fair enough ratings don't have to be hard duper optimized for accuracy.

There he is duper ranked three in the world 6.91 in my estimation he might be the best player in the world right now he's definitely come along in recent years he's pushed ben john's any time that he's faced him we got travis rhett my retina coming on strong only been playing pickleball for.

About seven eight months huge tennis background former professional tennis player and then on the other side for the chimeras we've got rob cassidy 6.36 duper 36 rank player of the day yesterday and then his partner daniel dela rosa very very.

Big upside for de la rosa big racquetball background absolutely that's what we've been seeing more from de la rosa he's he's finding the court coverage he's creating the ability to reach in and when he does he's got explosive power cassidy bouncing off the back wall probably not the first time we're gonna.

See him hit something that isn't a bull that's what we're going to see from johnson right there he's so calm so relaxed moving back and forth and then all of a sudden just reaching in quick snap of the wrist able to get away from delarosa's counter.

Attack right there great hands there from everybody travis really has come along with you talking about in the last year and i think austin had a lot to do with that learning from jw pickleball and then he kind of taught jw how to get out of his uh.

Emotionally and i think that's gonna be big for him his whole career but definitely here at mlp good speed up good hands from jw johnson so we're tied at two who's gonna pull the trigger first not surprising that it was jw.

But normally they uh he ends up on the winning end of that exchange cassidy has the uncanny ability to get a lot of balls back insane amount of bucks it's that ping pong grip things out in front unpacked.

jw's grip i think he's holding it pretty eastern he's able to flick and then when it comes back into beforehand that paddle face is down get it down at your feet smash going up 5-3 now chicken.

so strong in the wrist and forearm there being able to change direction coming from the racquetball world yes it seems that he holds it a little bit lower in the paddle too she's able to use the wrist a little more so i actually.

Hang my bottom two fingers off of the paddle that's coming from baseball but it frees up my wrist a little bit the higher up like cassidy being higher up there it's a little bit bummer wrist so yeah with dela rosa hanging a little deeper off of the paddle that frees up that wrist action florida smash now up three.

probably going to go out but once it's in the center mass there of the body how much you can do to get out of the way that's something he usually does he actually normally stays put so cassidy thinks that spot is safe close to the.

Sideline put it there and no sir that is gone we saw dela rosa trying to top rope it there after hit that big overhead cassidy staying in the point was all the way back behind him before.

That bowl yeah you know that's why you don't speed up cross court a little more time and then leave your partner exposed back within one i think you typically you're gonna say you don't typically see jw missed that.

Ball so now we're all tied up in lines it's not quite balanced there on his way forward down at the feet of john cena's walk as he was coming forward so retired again at tens.

cassidy down on one knee mid-caught there but the smash going up 11-10 we're gonna switch ends we've got cameron blackwood down courtside cameron what are you seeing here as far as we go into this end of change.

Or change end i love this matchup because de la rosa and cassidy are not afraid of jw so what happens is it keeps jw honest and instead of just keep going to travis keep going travis squeezing him in having the speed ups and then getting beat because jw's sitting in the middle jw's not feeling very comfortable right.

Now because they're going to him so much so i really like that they're fearless now if they start to get in trouble they need to take it back maybe set up the point go to travis a little bit more also i don't know if you guys remember but last mlp back in austin this was the exact match-up where the pickleball.

World was graced with the shot we now call the de la rosa where he was lobbed he ran behind it and hit a crazy forehand smash right down the middle splitting jw and travis so i'm hoping to see another dela rosa shot but we will see tight match here i'm excited to see who pulls this one out thanks cameron yeah the.

De la rosa on the run and smashing it back through the middle and definitely jw kind of a little off balance right now they're not giving him the extension that he's used to they're coming into the body and they're coming at him i'd like to see jw move a little more.

Try to create he seems a little stationary letting them so we're in the back and forth battle right now smash up 12-11 that ball sailing just a little deep.

It's a tough ball there to try and keep them back on anyway being aggressive with so florida smash now increasing their lead up four ah.

Oh my goodness how did some of those balls come back i mean de la rosa goes behind cassidy there gets that ball i mean that ball that get right there is unbelievable noobs coming there before before.

He's so strong just staying there in front and accelerating forward definitely getting in trouble when he goes that was smart from johnson right there typically he would speed that up down the line he chose to go cross court with it we saw de la rose leading in so far there there's no way he was gonna be.

Able to catch up and get that pedal right at the body perfect so chimera is taking a timeout here trailing 17-12 to the florida smash we've got cameron blackwood down caught side this is where i was saying if they start to get down they need to take it back a.

Notch get back into creating a pattern go at travis really start testing travis out again when balls start to come to him you can start to break him down with have and then going at jw to to surprise him when he's not expecting it so i think they need to slow it back down don't get in these hands battles do not tempt jw to hit a flick go at travis.

Go at travis and see if they can't get a a mistake from from him thanks cameron and we're going to take a look at the group b standings here so as we see hot eights florida smash chimeras and the clean all one and one hot eights in smash both winning five.

Games chimeras and clean four apiece so chimeras and clean playing against each other i mean sorry the hot eights and clean playing against each other over on grandstand both these matchups win or go home better job right there yeah from what cameron was saying.

They've definitely given jw a little bit and that's what he wants and if you allow him to get that he's able to flick it he's able to roll it do yeah he wants to extend good hands from bret meyer but de la rosa just too powerful with that one hold on.

good offensive lob from rhett my there de la rosa just raring back and slapping that one so now a couple of quick points for the florida smash they're now facing 14 first game point 2014.

And that ball is deep so the smash able to take this one and tie it at 1-1 camaros would give it a good run early on and then to smash this two charms they just didn't have enough to spread the court jw started getting a little more able to move around and create and able to flick and.

There's some loose errors there at the end taylor rosa tried to go for the dale rose and get a little flashy and that was just the last ditch ever to uh to reign it in but knotted at one all it looks like we have cameron blackwood about to talk to the winners travis.

Fretmar and jw johnson all right we have now even you guys up one to one florida smash you came back got this men's doubles said it wasn't your best but when you're not playing your best how are you still able to pull out a match like that well i mean i think that's.

Where jw and i have a good advantage soft notes hands where if we're not playing great we can just kind of slow everything down and keep it going if we're playing well we're hyper aggressive but uh at least on my end i didn't feel it the ball great early so i was kind of just trying to temper my uh aggression and make sure that i set him.

Up as best i could and janet were you surprised that they went to you so much and kept you in this match a little bit yes but i was fine with that so i like seeing the balls so i i think i thank them for hitting me a lot of balls no time even targeted man it's going to keep happening you better get used to it.

There you have it we are now even one to one we are heading to mixed doubles back to you guys thanks cameron we're gonna take a quick break and when we return our mixed doubles lineups from newport beach california.

Built them so and we're back here on championship court the 2022 mlp newport beach for our mix.

Doubles matchups between the florida smash and the chimeras with the score split at 1-1 for the smash we've got michelle esquivel and j.w johnson taking on rob cassidy and megan megan fudge so we've got the couple of esquivel and.

Cassidy taking on each other here across across the net from each other that's a little spicy i'm ready for it yeah esquivel didn't play her best in the first in women's doubles have to see how she does here to find her game she will be targeted that's what she's gonna do right there good first ball from esquivel pulling.

Cassidy out wide jw will never complain about getting that fudge exposing that outside great aggressive dink okay well maybe not speed that one up but she.

Was there one two put it away good shot from esquivel would like to see fudge take that out of the air escobar letting her off the hook by staying back good spot from esquivel into the body of fudge.

found the ball through the middle beforehand just three four yeah not quite sure if she's trying to give jw the the room on that one but but definitely she can move up kitchen line and then.

When she senses that senses jw starting to spot over you take that step back but if you're just sitting there constantly it's definitely overwhelming that was that whole cross-court speed up that we're talking about it's usually your partner that pays.

When you speed that ball up cross court goal sailing just a little deep from johnson that's the pressure of cassidy coming across bigger and bigger and bigger.

Cassidy just trying to go too big on that last one good defense good offense offense both sides has been pretty good at getting bulls.

Back right here unfortunately not able to get that one so ago so the chimeras are getting a couple point lead up nine seven cassidy going from side to side jump in.

The kitchen jw just putting that ball straight into the body to end the point that's where that grip can hurt him i think if he had a little bit normal you know less of an unconventional grip he could offense so a couple of errors from chimeras.

Smash have regained the lead up ten nine rob cassidy's definitely animated once he's out there again esquivel speeding up a couple of those balls cross court so camaros.

Going into the end change up 11 10. we're going to throw it down to cameron blackwood caught side cameron your thoughts i'm very surprised by this lineup usually we see jadab and lee playing together not michelle and jw so a little bit interesting i think it's just taken a little bit longer for them to find a.

Groove um i do know when they were deciding on who they were going to put out michelle did prefer to go first so this is the lineup that they wanted to go with and so i know they're looking to take this win to go up 2-1 on the other side here i think rob needs to stay within himself he's good enough to go.

Up against this team but he can't do too much he starts to do too much and that's why you see him missing these simple shots just a little bit wide so have him settle back in that will help michelle find her groove and uh i'm excited to see who takes this one guys thanks cameron yeah definitely a back and forth battle right here.

And we saw exactly exactly what you're talking about with rob cassidy trying to do too much and doing those big swings similar when jw gets a little too big so both men on each side looking to stay a little bit more compact excellent ball for megan fudge going back behind esquivel 12 10.

112. all right quite able to get that one back for jw caught on the back foot especially since michelle seems to be a little.

12 14. fudge pointing i should have gone the opposite direction i do like that inside out forehand right there but you definitely have to really get the paddle head underneath it wrist and hand right behind it.

i learned that from someone very close to you way back when uh and there she got a little risky with it and let that paddle face come through that's what we've got to see from jw johnson right there stepping in taking control excellent job by fudge.

Wow okay so excellent move by cassidy but then i i what cameron was talking about you get so into it you try to do too much you hit a ball that's probably going 10 feet oh yeah it's going into the tarp hit these winners have these great shots happening that jw does all the.

Time to play within yourself so we're tied at 16's this back and forth battle continues 16 16. michelle's speeding up cross court 17 16. saving the day a little bit.

early on in this match got some had some success with it right now she's staying down the line with fudge that ball just sailing now chimeras regained the lead of 18 17. 18 17. trying to figure out how she fell but.

Yeah this is the slide of the foot i've done that on the court myself as well looks like she's okay which is a good sign doesn't feel the best on the 18 achilles minute so taking a time out.

Here not only to talk but to give fudge a little bit of time we're gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood courtside cameron great time out here i think they needed to regroup we just had delarosa come over talk to megan fudge and said you need to counter on that first ball don't.

Reset counter right away really catch them off guard especially they're getting a lot of free points off michelle so use that first ball laws they're coming at you counter down and get this win we also heard we had um we had andrea tell um megan fudge she said block and counter keep doing that but make sure you're doing it off that.

First ball back to you guys thanks cameron megan fudge looks like she's moving around okay a little wide off the net mcqueen.

So we got our first freeze both teams frozen now camaros leading this one 2019 first game point for them trying to put their team up 2-1 yep cassidy down on the ground megan fudge running from all the opposites all the way across the court.

From the opposite side and j.w johnson showing them why their names are florida smash lee whitwell's got some good comments right there route 66 all day just drive it through the middle.

the ball just catching the line from cassidy getting fired up before the ball even hit the ground rob's going to slow himself back down he can't get over aggressive here.

You're not going to be the hero here you need to play up to the line and what's the point good hands from jw johnson speeding that ball up into the body of megan fudge and then finish him with the backhand clutch did a great job too.

Countering that getting out of the way but so florida smashed with their first game point good job by rob cassidy stepping in and taking that drive just a little too much room for john johnson to cover there.

Had the paddle on here so we're all taught again johnson but you could tell how tentative everybody was nobody wanted to be the one that was that to miss or to pop that ball up we saw this in austin dude these these moments once again a lot longer.

Except for that that one was better good drive from esquivel good movement from johnson little shake and bake so now florida smashed with another game point up 22-21 good defense by fudge good read.

By cassidy i don't mind j.w gung after that ball try to speeding it up normally he has the fastest hands at every point you're going to win 60 go for it there was cassidy tried him again and jw said no you're not going to beat me a second.

Time so third game point for the florida smash there's what you're talking about earlier esquivel not quite getting up to the kitchen line she's a little unsure whether jw's gonna come over how much court she needs to take.

In this game these things are moving a lot quicker they look like on tv i'll tell you that stepping in and showing some power got travis coming in giving some advice he's got the gray beard must have some wisdom in that head right don't knock the gray.

I've seen something showing up in yours there as well buddy don't tell anybody i was about to say if this one comes back again throw it up again because it's so difficult once you're hitting overhead off the overhead off the overhead to one not think about it.

You're thinking about trying to hit it harder and get away so florida smash come back and take this one 23-21 and putting their team up now with a 2-1 lead really impressed with esquivel there.

Those last couple points being a little aggressive when she needed to jw obviously taking over it looks like we have cameron blackwood down on the court with the winners from the florida smash cameron down to you florida smash now up one to two against the chimeras can you please tell us what the decision was to put you two up first.

No decision at all just had the feeling to go out there so i don't make decisions my team does there you go and when usually you're playing cross court with a girl hitting the dinks when you're straight up how does that change your strategy it does change up the strategy you can still go behind the guy.

Um going across court but um yeah it's a little different having the girl straight up the dinks down the line or you know there's it's tight it's not a lot of room so you got to be super ready and we pulled it off and we're really happy yes sounds like there you go up two to one going into the next mixed doubles match.

Here on center court back to you guys thanks cameron we're going to take a quick break and when we return second mixed doubles match up chimera is trying to take this one and force us to a dreambreaker back here at newport beach i'm gonna say she's a solid three-five nah she's definitely a 2.5.

Guys look at that forehand she's clearly a 3.0 guys come on i'm at least the four oh yeah yeah fair enough ratings don't have to be hard duper optimized for accuracy optimized for fun download the app and claim your free profile today are we ready to get this started.

Welcome to pickleball night in america live we're coming to you from dripping springs texas thomas wilson is so fast oh dj with the behind the back.

Wow just caught the back corner wow oh my goodness gracious i mean we saw so many things there we saw speed look at the crowd standing up ovation on that shot it's hard to find supplements that work no thank you you need supplements that are backed by science with natural and.

Plant-based ingredients and that are third-party tested because cleaner is better like oral organic plant-based supplements made from the earth's most powerful plants for your immune health gut health workouts and more find out more at auraorganic.com.

and we're back here at ttc newport beach california finishing up pool play between the florida smash and chimeras this is a win or go home situation florida smash.

Up 2-1 chimera is looking to even it here on our second mixed doubles matchup and forces to another dream breaker matt what are you looking for out of these pairings of coupe dela rosa whitwell and retina yeah it's gonna be interesting here i expect travis to do a lot of that taking.

The middle being the aggressor on his side but uh well i think coop is really going to try to get her off the court control those tanks and de la rosa's gonna have to take over the middle on his side as well good drive by retime.

Yeah if those drives are working it's going to be a long game for del rosa coop left foot yep clearly in there it wasn't even a toe that was hoffy's foot going in right there.

Very common for that that push-off i was actually just about to talk about that whole kitchen thing so if the reason why de la rosa got called for the push off there is yes his feet was his foot was not touching the kitchen when he did it but his left foot touched the line didn't establish both.

And we see red meyer right there he stepped in was able to get that second foot back established outside of the kitchen before hit the ball out of the air by coop going into the left shoulder of lee whitwell two three travis doing such a good job though.

Really shrinking the court and david rose then coupe his court coverage has caught understanding i think he nailed it on the head since austin since austin i've really seen his game just going ahead leaps and bounds and we saw it right there all over the court.

Again hands short quick four three phenomenal play from rhett miles that's what's so great about this format major league pitfall and having teams that you normally don't play with players you normally don't play with you can learn a lot from each other you see.

A lot of growth both as players as people and i think for like i said earlier to have someone like travis it's been immense for his game a little disappointed in himself.

Tough ball to speed up yeah especially taylor rose is sitting there he's got this is way too quick to do that but you gotta try it see what works see what doesn't yeah it's early on i mean now's the time to.

To test that you don't want to be testing that at 19 a piece good ball movement from de la rosa and you can really see it on the camera there that tank that acted once it hits the.

Court it is really shooting off if the work is not correct very tough to deal with it smash bringing it back to one down six seven now we're back even at sevens.

So again we're seeing another back and forth battle between both teams i think we should just start at 18-0 what do you think a lot of paddle speed on that ball it's that racquetball slap yep and for leigh you have to beat so low so far in front get the face that paddle up just.

Couldn't do it there don't bring that at me i'm a tombow wag not today.

Good shot by coop romero's back up 9-8 the anticipation of my retina is just too good right there stayed short didn't try to do too much with it grab that ball off coop's paddle nine nine while she's hanging back similar to what.

Esquivel was doing and if retime decides not to move then it leaves a hole so chimeras go ahead 11 9 as we head into the end change we're gonna throw it down to cameron blackwood courtside.

I think you had a great idea if we started at 18 all it would take just as long i like what they're doing here i think that's a great observation i think what andrew is trying to do is create that hole keep having travis squeeze over squeeze over and either go down the line or have him pull back and see that hole that that lee's leaving right there.

As for the other side they were saying that he's that they were talking about delarosa saying he sits forehand every time so they're looking to jam him up when they decide to speed up or when they decide to counter thanks cameron yeah we've we've seen it a couple of times with de la rosa i mean.

Starting with that paddle almost behind him on the forehand side hard part is his hands are so quick he's able to switch over and cover that back end but definitely a little bit of a change needed from the smash here tie it up and get back his head if they.

Can yeah it's just the tough spot for red meyer to put lee woodwell in there coming all the way over she's not sure what's going on right at her chest not a spot you want to be in 12 9. hey i don't know i mean the first one.

Amazing second one not sure he needed to go as far over coop kind of look at him like hey i had that one but he's used to scrambling like that from racquetball i love that move early in the point from the middle of the point from lee.

Woodwall to cross over rat my i watched that a couple of weeks ago up in beer city drive follow and not do so much with it but really snap that wrist and generate the spin hey let's go where is it.

How am i supposed to get that i gotta climb under the table so we're back tied at 13s back and forth no one can seem to really pull away just staying so short so compact i think lee's showing that she can hang in these.

Backhand beforehand take battles here with coop there's no need for travis to rush take over too quickly setting it up move when you want take over that middle setting that ball up very.

Disappointed that they didn't make it so she's certainly looking to do whatever she can to get them through and now we're caught up again at 15 15 15. and we talked about that earlier today that 70 drive that just gets on your opponent makes them do something.

You're not sure if someone's going to crash or it's just going to give you an easier fifth shot but that 70 percent drive that's dipping and pay dividends plenty especially at 15. 16 15. so let's get one give one that's right back now at 16's coupe.

Hit retime left okay oh so really spreading the court just finally.

Went for a little bit too much and over again probably would have split one of those up instead of continued to try to spread with the things so camaros back up two now okay he's got to say defense has certainly stepped into gear before chimera is there.

And then retire comes all the way across the court speeding that ball up back behind him people watching at home i don't think they realize the body control how physical that point was so low keep the paddle out in front and square paddle faces.

Oh right now so chimera is going up 19 17. two points away now trying to speed that up a little bit too low there from coop maybe trying to sneak in 1917 now 18 19.

oh first game point here for the chimeras a little unlucky that ball hitting the net whitwell trying to duck under it red mud trying to reach over and grab it.

So chimera is looking to take this one and push us to our dream breaker brett leia getting a netball back 18 20. oh so chimera is getting another shot just here little wad.

So 2018 chimeras forcing us to our second dream breaker of the day maybe we just don't start at 18 18 we just start with the sister at the end.

All right so this one's going to be an interesting dream breaker here between the smash and the chimeras who do you give the edge to i mean you gotta you gotta give a heads up to jw and his team just because you know he's the best singles player in the world.

At the moment but it looks like we have cameron blackwood down with de la rosa cameron let's send it down to you a must win for the chimeras to take it to the dream breaker when you're in a match that's that close almost tied all the way until the end what's that key factor that changes it for you to win.

The match uh the trust we need to trust in ourselves and also trust in our what we can what we able to do on the court but yeah andrea pulled it up pretty good and then yeah we use dream breaker so we'll see how it goes and when you have someone like andrew that's so consistent going cross court what ball do you look for to.

Impose and take out of the air the one is a little bit high they have the opportunity for me because i'm not a really tall guy but i'm waiting for the right moment the right shot and also i'm looking my opponents to see what kind of shot i can hit very nice well we'll let you get to the dream breaker there you have it kai mary's tie it up two to two.

Can't wait to see who takes this one back to you guys thanks cameron we're gonna take a quick break here from newport beach california and after the break we'll let you know the match-ups for our second dream breaker here from championship court.

it's hard to find supplements that work no thank you you need supplements that are backed by science with natural and plant-based ingredients and that are third-party tested because cleaner is better.

Court major league pickleball newport beats california waiting on the matchups here for our second dream breaker see andrea coop and travis retime having a discussion with steve.

Kuhn wes we'll throw it down to cameron for more information i'm down here courtside and what is very interesting just like our first dream breaker we do not have a happy florida smash they're supposed to counter however the chimeras have grabbed gabriel tardio to come in and take one.

Of the single spots i'm not sure who's her or what decision that was made but florida smash is definitely not happy that's why you see steve and ann out here to settle this to see if they're allowed to go ahead and have gabe if not they're going to have that line up they have to present that line up here very quickly back to you guys.

Thanks cameron so gabriel tardio being a hot discussion today so we've got our lineups andrea coop leading off for chimeras going against jake johnson for florida smash will be jw johnson.

Number two for chimeras will be daniel dela rosa number two for florida's mass will be rittenmeier dela rosa taking on friend four chimeras will be megan fudge number three for florida's match will be michelle esquivel and number four for the chimeras will be.

Rob cassidy and he will be taking on lee whitwell so if you're not familiar with a free breaker there's nothing else like it it's the most exciting thing in sports you guys are in for a treat but let's go it'll be.

A lot trying to get the crowd fired up here much larger crowd today compared to yesterday definitely the weekend bringing out the spectators grab yourself a shady spot nice cold one.

Yeah some of the best pickleball players i fell i fell victim to the it's not that hot the sun's not gonna hurt me yesterday my forehead took a little bit of a beating used to it being hot humid you know when it's hot not like oh yeah the sun's out so we're going first match up.

Andrea coop jw johnson all day you've done more than he has win or go home situation here for both teams hard eights taking down team clean 4-0 over on grandstand punching their ticket through to the quarterfinals.

Making coop come up with the pass a little bit too difficult there quick 2-0 start for johnson just so smooth so smooth he trains on the beaches in florida with the elastic band so smash jumping up 4-0 with a hot start from jw johnson.

Travis retmeis stepping up next against daniel de la rosa for the count chimeras both players running down balls back behind them de la rosa just missing that one a little deep potentially deep and wide five zero good inside out forehand not the stock.

For the chimeras that they wanted and the only the problem is you know you have jw coming in again against coop you can tack on another four points at this point so six zero stock for the smash and that right there is why they're called the florida smash retime going up high putting that one away.

7-0 start retime definitely the tennis background showing through the singles game and chimeras get the first point on their side from an unforced should be able to make a little bit of a run here megan fudge awesome single player now fudge did not overpower any ball.

Right now but she painted line to line taking azkabel all over the court the slice forehand on the run is not what you're used to seeing in high-level singles pickleball but showed us it can be done got that count a punch of style yeah especially if fudge is gonna stay back there and slice that forehand.

You're gonna have opportunities to come in and see if all and not get past that's what happened right there good defense from fudge esquivel is definitely dangerous from the singles aspect of when she slaps that ball and she's able to hit that heavier ball but fudge just too much.

As far as putting those balls back in play consistently so esquivel and fudge split smash still with a 9-3 lead let's see if cassidy can do something against whitwell lives.

Big one-handed backhand from well just going from broke up 9-3 i understand why that looks so clean better ball movement from rob cassidy he's definitely got to get whipwell on the run um god missed that ball it's hard for me to get in there rob not.

Known for his single prowess a great drive so smash up 11-4 as we switch ends we're going to throw it down to cameron blackwood giving us a little more information here regarding this dream breakup i am not surprised by florida smash.

Being up by this lead when you have someone like jw johnson to lead you off on such a strong lead then you have travis rattenmeier who feeds off of jw johnson i see florida smash taking this all the way the chimers is really going to have to slow this down stay consistent if they want to stay in this dream breaker back to you guys.

Thanks cameron oh we're throwing some sunglasses up on the roof now yeah what it i mean it's tough here in second round well go we've still got one more point left for this whitwall cassidy matchup.

So lee taking a couple from cassidy right there definitely an uphill battle for coup i mean coop is a phenomenal singles player there's just so much the jw covers and she comes in oh just a little date from.

Johnson so two points in a row right there much better set up execution by coupe gains him another couple of points back still a large gap to close good little change of direction with a.

Quick flick 7 14. all of a sudden it's hard situation for the chimeras right here you have to go for it all but you don't want to go for too much i mean de la rosa missing that one into the net right there.

Just giving away three later points up 17-8 forehand roll.

From fudge putting esquivel on the run 9 18. fudge was just nice and patient right there making a lot of balls forcing escobar to try to do too much still an eight-point lead here for the smash this dual died dream breakup.

Great serve there from cassie skidded through the court 11 18. now we're only six points away pressure does some crazy things cassidy having a much better second round here against well big point there for whitwell.

Florida smash now within two good hands good touch from johnson match point match point here on the paddle on the paddle 2013 of jw not so fast to be able to shape that one back in.

So again now with florida smash frozen camaros can still keep rolling jw's got to try to win this one back so coop calling that ball a little long you're calling that one a little long whitwell deciding on whether she was going to challenge or not.

I have no idea lee do you see this big like so the ball was called out by chimeras was confirmed by a referee but florida smash wants to challenge and go to our vantage point here he looked like that ball was going.

I might stand corrected this might be a tougher one to pick up as we take a look at our replay referee crew when it's overturned travis redmart will be able to serve out this national spot the quarters otherwise de la rosa.

Continue to add points let's take a look at it from out overhead 360. that is the different ball that's the ball we're looking at oh looks like we might have a serve coming to travis redmar.

Both inside the basement we went well excited on the sideline for the florida smash we're hearing courtside this may be overturned 2015.

And there it is florida smash taking this one over the chimeras three to two all right so our second dream breaker of the day we see the fives go through knocking out the bus and now we.

See florida smash go through knocking out chimeras well getting everybody fired up we've got cameron blackwood caught side with our winners florida smash just did just that they're fired up ready to go when you're going into the dreambreaker.

Michelle what's the discussion before you guys are going in we want match-ups you know we want to see the matchups and we also want to put our better players playing more points it's no secret and we did that and we came out strong and i'm proud of all of us you definitely did come out shrunk you got a match-up that you love against.

Rob cassidy a little slower start but you were able to take it to him in the end how do you do that i listened to my team they gave me the game plan they said whatever you do do this and don't change when i did it it worked when i changed it it didn't work so i should listen to them more often.

And when you're going up in the first you're looking to get those points right off the bat you were able to do that both times how are you able to stay so calm in these big moments uh i mean internally not so calm but i don't know just excited for my team hope i hope i can do good for him and.

Just always calm travis any words you guys are moving on yeah i was shocked after the mixed jw said his nerves were shot i was like man i don't even see any nerfs you know so i was like you hide that very well maybe acting's in his future who knows or poker something like that there you guys have it florida smash.

we are back in newport beach california home to the prestigious major league pickleball tournament series it is the final round of group play with a match-up featuring blqk and the lions winner advances and the lions really need this win we are starting with women's doubles at.

A right kicking off our coverage she's 30 years old right hand dominant and a dominant player all around in this tournament series so far dom yeah she is she's really showing why she was picked up in between austin and here in newport uh a real kind of.

Beast on the court that two-handed backhand she is showing it off all weekend so far she is partnering with the 30-year-old jacksonville beach florida native olivia mcmillan that lefty is lethal she's shown it all tournament wrong long her duper ranking is 22nd best in the tournament for the ladies what impresses you the most about.

The way that these two play together interestingly enough with backhands in the middle yeah they do backhands in the middle so it'll be olivia on the left and it'll be at a right on the right so they put those two lethal backhands in the middle they'll be squaring off against irina tarashenko for blqk one of the greatest.

Of all time in women's pickleball she's excellent in singles just as well as she is with doubles and the interesting storyline here for blqk is that there is no paris todd due to injury and so irina tarashenko will be partnering with rachel wrecker based out of illinois she has a tennis background.

How do you find chemistry and find it quickly when there's a new partnership involved so i've known rachel for a little while coming in um a lot of fire power so the best part about this sub right here is that wrecker's going to play very similar to paris todd now you cannot duplicate actual paris todd but
