good morning everybody and welcome to a big day in pickleball i'm dave fleming and we are at the skechers invitational we're going to start out with two very important mix matches and we're going to start with jocelyn devillier and jesse irvin playing riley newman and catherine parento that will be followed by lucy.

Go to cbs at 1 pm pacific and then we've got some amazing matchups later today it's christmas for pickleball right here at the skechers invitational at the riviera country club don't miss a minute hi i'm rick barry i used to play professional basketball now i'm into pickleball performance is really important but also.

By hertz by select medical bionics and the official ball the dura by skechers and folks we are ready to play ball dave fleming here with scott crandall and as i mentioned in the intro.
We are going to be playing for the right to play on cbs so the stakes are not small this morning we've got riley newman and catherine parento playing against jesse irvin and jay divilio we're going to play two games 211 win by one if there is a split we're gonna go to.
The fastbreaker we'll explain that later it's uh the tiebreaker format here at the skechers invitational so riley newman ready to serve let's play pickleball oh you'd love to just make that first ball and he missed it by just a millimeter there for ripping that rip in.
The third and ditto to jesse there you see jay devillier serving yeah jesse was in trouble got saved the ball up near her eyes okay so uh one on the board riley newman lives in.
The phoenix area basketball player got that unique grip and jay devilier is up to the task here early with the hands okay so davilia definitely seeing the ball beautifully here to start this match he was the first one here warming up there you go.
Practice makes perfect and i'll send him a postcard for that uh one one of the easier balls that he could deal with today he's made all the difficult ones yes there's a nice move by de villier earning and interesting here we don't have a lefty but we have a choice that.
Riley newman is playing the right side in front of devilier typically in mixed unless there's a lefty we'll see the male player on the left side of the court what a point by riley newman and then slides it down the line to beat him after a tremendous fire fight.
We're off and running here folks yeah these two teams this is this is a match you would expect to see in the finals of a major tournament and we're just we're just starting the day with the big guns nice read by catherine she left a dink up but knew the likely target of that attack would be the middle and she was.
Ready yeah i feel like jessie's gotta know that jay's gonna slide over her readiness and you know you say well why would you put riley on the right side well he is much more dangerous off the bounce with that two-hander in the middle and catherine's two-handed backhand dinks across court.
They're gonna feel comfortable with that against devilier so why not put riley in front of jay and try and neutralize some of that yeah with the with riley's two-handed backhand that's his strength so put put put your strength in the middle of the court and a quick 5-1 start for parento.
Another one of those beautiful teardrop thirds of hers okay so got a little emotion out of the big frenchman here and watch this battle jay's hands have been on fire so far i think he's really only lost one hand and that one not hit square but actually helped the.
Cause there kept it in and there's the what we thought we would see on the other point you know it's coming to the middle now your partner has to slide with you and devilier there to finish yeah it's interesting how far over riley's coming to take some of those.
Dinks and jesse effectively went behind him to open up the court and he is a active player he's in your head when the match even hasn't started and you have to keep him honest to go behind him or he will take every bit of square footage available.
I mean riley's riley's intangibles are off the charts like chaotic points are where he you know where he lives and where he thrives so he's just out there being a nuisance starting stuff that he can finish oh my with the back of the paddle oh and a left-handed ernie lands on the line and.
I guess what scott that 5-1 lead is gone sometimes a not well struck return that ends up short ends up being the best thing you can do because the players in a hurry to hit the drop so five five catherine parento the montreal born and bred.
Got a lot of uh we could have a french argument in this uh cross-court think battle is from france yeah those those short returns that don't really bounce up you have to sprint forward you have all your momentum going yeah you have to get a perfect touch shot that's the that was kind of the challenge on that.
That last third couple points ago that ball definitely sailing out and irving can't get the pedal out of the way similar ball got out of the way that one was like she was swatting flies there pickleball's all about making adjustments yeah that's a nice job bye.
I mean a great job that entire point i really when when jay is playing his best he's he's chasing down that ball behind him and hitting effective tanks and getting right back into the middle of things he actually overran that meaning he was too far in front after a perfect setup irvine goes for the big.
Poke and just misses it wide not by much that's a nice slice by devilier so a lot of his magic is working here so far but still down too so devilier's drop shot was the right thing just not executed perfectly left a little too close to the kitchen line instead of close to the net yeah i don't think it was the right thing.
He had done at the previous point so there was no surprise to it that's a good finish by devilier there so get the ball back down three and you know some matches no one ever scores this is one of those matches where people are scoring every time on their serve.
Not unkind to irving there and she's a local she should get a little something here just lives about 20 minutes from the riviera country club kick save from devilier but i don't see any hockey goals so that's not going to help him.
Nice job bye great we talked a lot about the atp is now a setup ball and not a clean winner whereas a year or two ago that's a clean winner and irving a little off the line there for to try that and i know you gotta try and find the balance because de villiers running in front of you.
And we are quickly at a game point here leslie frank calling out the score and that'll do it so in a match that as i mentioned was full of the server scoring we got to 11 quickly and it was parento and newman doing the job devilier hot start but too much catherine parento too much.
Riley newman will they be able to keep it going in game number two each shot has its own strategy each player their own style whether you dink it drive it blob it drop it bang it or spin it is entirely up to you.
But we do keep score we recognize the winners podiums are earned if you want an edge you best work for it electrum earn your edge the pro xr pickleball paddle answers the agent question of how to get paddle speed and control.
With the same paddle and one grip and this is it pro xr gives you more spin greater control and quicker reloads on every shot in the game because you always have that constant feel for that leverage and control and paddle speed that we're all looking for pro xr is the most revolutionary.

The ending was fast a little too fast for irvin and davilia we'll see if they can get it going here can't make the transition ball though to start yeah jay and riley's hands were both lightning fast that game won hopefully that'll continue and continue it has because.
I put together a perfect point and newman is there with the block in the middle and then finishes okay if high-level pickleball is what you've come to watch you are in the right place and it'll continue all day long oh devilier goes for the around the post.
But gets the dreaded htp and hit the post so that point goes to parento and newman and big pace from devilier there so i think it's important for them to get at least one here just mentally sometimes you drop that first game in a hurry and you're down a couple.
It can snowball catherine if you don't win the attack you're really out of position a great reply from jesse off off riley's first shot she kept it blocked it back kept it low so it got attackable which set jay up beautifully that returns right on the line.
Forcing newman back deep so no harm done there you see jesse irvin originally from north carolina now a socal native now and looking to please her fans that are here to see her play great today that's a tough sequence for them trying.
To dig back into this just relentless pressure are you guys going to be able to keep dropping those in the kitchen or not and the the depth on all of those replies from jay and jesse was very solid there was no invitation to the kitchen then.
Kitchen was closed okay let's go southpaw to finish that one and uh you gotta be careful when you're gonna i mean it's good to think behind riley get him back over on his side but if it's floating at all his reach is just so strong you're in trouble and one of the few players willing to go.
Finish that with a left-handed overhead instead of a two-handed backhand or one-handed flick so good start for them here that time the lefty does not pay off and again well jesse she went behind him with a little bit of pace and she kept it low enough that there wasn't a lot he could riley could.
Do with it that's a nice reply from irv in there on the newman attack and they're on the board here in game two yes that is a nicer pie i love how she just gets the pedal way out in front of her rather than waiting for it to get behind her to swing with two reaches out with one and puts it.
Back down on the ground and obviously out in front takes time away and those tenths of a second matter so catherine and o'reilly have switched sides for the first time that i've noticed today that is great court presence by devilier and irvin of.
Filling in after the ernie pays dividends of that that's a gorgeous shot inside out so tied up here in game two forenso and newman took game number one and that is another solid volley so irving's play is.
Increasing with each point here and they get a quick side out so a little momentum going to the side of devilier who you see serving near the 6'3 flying frenchman now lives in wichita kansas okay and now the audio is matching the level of play here it is.
That was great jessie knew she left it a little high and covered that middle perfectly jay set a screen so no one saw it coming when jesse hit it just wide on that block and second service here catherine parento to receive michigan.
State tennis player now lives in naples florida area a little shake and bake there so a nice combo jesse did a great job of keeping that drive low and then jay didn't really have to he didn't overplay the volley nice spot from riley if you're gonna do it that first ball as.
You mentioned has got to be heavy and low or else your partner's out of position nice finish by newman there i mean he ran that play twice in that same point i thought jay would be a little more aggressive on the second time around and newman able to find that forehand.
Side devilier with his grip and his positioning sits heavy backhand so that's the spot to attack newman's found it again bradley's paddle angle on that high forehand though was such that he could go it was hard to read where he's going he could have gone wherever he wanted so that's the disguise and the uniqueness.
Of his grip look at parental dick and newman finishes so great work by parento in the front of that point and newman gets the highlight reel and another tag of devilian the lead is right back to parental and.
Newman okay if you yell out twice your partner will eventually say okay that's you know we talk about pickleball as a game of decisions gotta choose the right shot at the right spot that's got.
To be dropped and just ease up instead of attacking from there another left to get look at that defense gets them back to even two net forwards in a row and devilier finishes off a brilliant point it would have been painful to lose that because jay and jesse were ahead the.
Whole time catherine and riley were making some phenomenal gets and it would have felt like the stealth of a point oh that's in rental gets there newman's in and again the drop shot does not serve davilier well as the quickness of.
Parento and newman all over it i mean riley can cover the court in two steps catherine is an extremely quick singles player she doesn't have a problem retrieving and then you know before we said no invitations to the kitchen that's a whole buffet welcome and just nothing for free from parento.
And newman and suddenly that lead we talked about is gone and newman just can't quite handle a very deep return ended up with footwork on advertising here at center court at the riviera country club.
That's a great first volley so six seven one is our score and now we're tied at seven that's a tough point for to know where to go and the newman paddle is down and i can tell you that without even calling timeout that's what.
It means so uh paddles are down the level of play is rising and this is quite a battle devilier and irvin have edged back in front like a match race of two thoroughbreds so can they continue we shall see right after this.
ben you've got to give it up you're stepping out of bounds i'm so close parental it goes all the way to the top talking refs commentators food vendors but how can you prove this it's so simple.
Bring me the jigsaw all right welcome back it is newman and parento who have called timeout irvin and devilier have the lead can't make the ball in transition there so i missed that short you just gotta be.
Firm with it and newman chooses to attack a third that was bounced just a bit so the timeout is very very effective and just too much there parento couldn't he had to hit about four excellent shots to finally set up.
The angle put away if it's seven winners required on this court today folks to get one there's a nice jump of the line he's done that multiple times jesse is doing a very good job of jumping middle and cleaning it up um you know every time because.
Catherine's been defending that ernie uh pretty well so the reset clinic by irvin pays off as she gets a miss and nine seven is the score i like the confidence to rip it yes i'd like to see a couple little smaller steps and indecision in the middle and we are.
Indecision because of it was a great spot that jesse found on her on her kind of reset block volley very well done so we got a game point and it is devilier who finishes and folks we are going to have a fast.
Breaker tiebreaker so let me set let me set the scene for what's going to happen here it's a fast breaker which means each player gets to serve one and only one time but they can get as many points on that one opportunity that they get.
one team will serve the other team will have both of their players served you get as many as you can get on your one service opportunity and this will decide who's playing on cbs so the tension in this really fast that's why it's a fast breaker scott i personally would want to serve first and.
Then have that fourth opportunity to sort of know where i'm at but it does put me at a disadvantage in the rally tiebreaker if we're tied up yeah that would be my strategy if i had to pick i would want to be the one receiving if it was tied at the end um but i think that's not as as important as whoever scores first has a.
Huge advantage yes indeed so that so it's uh that's why the format's interesting there's benefits to both sides so here we go irvin will serve until her side loses a rally oh newman will serve again.
You can get as many as you can while riley is serving riley was hitting that ball down he was just going straight i hop with the pancake and jesse blocked it back that's phenomenal hands so a lot of syrup there saves it all right so now this is parento again no score.
Oh no and devilier steps on the line on a ball he could hammer so parento and newman are on the board first and catherine continues to serve all right that goes wide so devilier will serve from the right side of the court they have to get at least one or the.
Left side of the court excuse me just to be clear they have to fight two match points in a row yes and that's it and that will do it so newman and parento sneak out a victory in by the fastest breaker the smallest margin that's why it's a fast breaker it's quick.
get the fast breaker so they will play on cbs we'll talk to the winners right after this if um well welcome back to center court everyone i'm here with catherine perento.
Riley newman guys you are moving on it felt like in that match there were a lot of power a lot of aggression and that's something that jessie and jay kind of want the other team to push them into that kind of game do you feel like you just rose up and played that same game even better yeah i mean i feel like i trust.
Catherine and i's hands at the net i feel like we have one of the quicker hands out there um you know jay's obviously got superb hands as well so any ball i liked i tried to go at him it's it's definitely a tough test to do but i'm just happy we came away with the win definitely wasn't the cleanest breaker in the third game um.
Thank you for the referee i feel like to get us that line call but uh no he just put a lot of pressure and uh happy to come away with the win well i want to talk about that fast breaker it's something new that we're using just for this event but it makes it a lot tougher to know who's going to come away with the win because it's fast it's hard to.
Predict what's going to happen were you nervous going into that oh yeah i was very nervous you know you had to take it one point at a time and we got i feel like we got super lucky and yes thanks to the referee because i think that's the only kind of way that we got the the win well this guy's earns you a spot on cbs.
This is going to be taped your your final so to speak coming up how big is that for pickleball no it's huge for the sport i mean uh growing up watching tennis on cbs watching all the big sports it's just very cool and we're very fortunate and very blessed to be able to play on cbs so hopefully everyone tunes in later today at one.
O'clock we'll give it our best stuff and just uh hopefully put on a really good performance for everyone back at home catherine you got people that are going to be tuning in on that one yes me too yes i'm looking forward to it all right guys congratulations we'll see more of you later on today we're going to take a quick break we'll be right.

all right everybody welcome back we are at the riviera country club dave fleming with fellow senior pro scott crandall scott what a great match to start the day and now we have another beauty so let's set the table we've got mom and daughter on the court.
Here anna lee waters and she will be fired up to play with ben johns here mom's going to be watching she's going to be playing i think that's harder for lee when anna lee's actually playing than watching 15 year old phenom from south florida playing with ben.
Johns they've got the matching outfits going on today they're going to be playing a couple of people that have been at the highest level of the game their entire career lucy kovaleva and matt wright from wichita partners on and off the court have done a lot for the game on and off.
The court and now we are playing for the right to play newman and parento on cbs later today all right lucy kovalev let's play pickleball to start the day zero picks up right where she left off yesterday with a big time poach on the.
Second point of the match she's always looking and always dangerous yeah she told us yesterday she loves going for the poach and when you have a partner who is one of the best players in the world and ben john's the trust of what's gonna happen if you get a little out of position.
Why not go anna lee is definitely going to be a crowd favorite here today good to leave by cutting over there yeah you're right i see a lot of a lot of juniors in the in the crowd and so you know you know they're pulling free annaly.
Sport continues to attract a broad variety of players and fans of all ages oh and matt wright will happily take a little help off the tape kovalev with a nice stab earlier in that point yeah they went one two one matt lucy.
Went from behind to a head in that point with one simple neck sir matt wright does such a good job resetting on the move there but that ball just too low and a little behind him twice twice emily waters kind of sneaking over.
To the side of the court not even an ernie just i'm i'm camped out and again it's a great play because it just puts ben in the middle of the court he can he can get everything else and if she can if she can put pressure over there it's a nice strategy that's one of those when you're.
Unwinding the stack i like occasionally not going to the far sideline but actually back in the middle because they'll overrun it four one one and uh no love off the tape there by right as he went for the cross court attack and it's waters and john's up five one.
Second sir that drive is nice and low it's dipping and then matt sees the price ben johns running towards him makes it makes it a tough volley all right it is go time for kovaleva and wright is the pressure that this team puts on anybody they play against there's a good look at netcam the ball.
Coming right over the net love it nice move by matt right there so you're gonna sit over there on the sideline anna lee i can do the same so nice finish by right there he isn't really known for someone who puts a lot of ernie's you know so that was just well timed and he just he saw it before it happened.
look at kovalova get lova in case the waters has to put on that ball you have to have just enough but you got to keep it in too that's perfect catch is right on the stretch nice attack by john's there so they get one on the ernie but uh.
The lead is four little indecision there right wants to protect lucy coming in there but a long way to go yeah he he couldn't see her uh she was ready for that and it was just slightly out of his reach but the idea is good the execution just wasn't quite there.
And there's where that fourth ball is up and clobbered by annalee water so uh anna lee and ben johns off and running they want to play on cbs later today as a duo we'll be right back.
oh oh all right welcome back right and kovaleva call timeout to stop the f absolute storm that.
Waters and john's have put in front of them and sir immediately it works here's your timeouts folks how many times can we say it use them the momentum is real and the momentum breaker is real so 281 they get the ball back very quickly can they do something with it.
Oh full wind up by waters catches the tape and again you saw kovaleva keeping john's honest but going behind him there that's a good way to set up the rest of the court yeah lucy went with a slow attack at bad and then matt matt got away with us with a slower.
Medium attack at anna lee i think emily would have made it if matt hit it nice heavy top spin roll from the former michigan state excuse me michigan just to be clear wolverine matt right catherine parento earlier michigan state big drive by kovalova catches the net so annalee water.
Got a couple there can they get the ball back quickly again kovaleva just under siege would like that last one and back is gorgeous just the little flick that it's got to be out by the height it goes by your body and yet it's got such the perfect base and spin bends at full range.
The ball is below the net there's no way this ball can go oh it's in trying to turn 10 42. second shot at game number one for waters and johns and john's goes for the third shot they came up short i think kovalev was stunned by where that ball ended up and.
Went for too much of an angle she didn't want to hit anybody no so ladies and gentlemen and john's looking very good for the crowd here at riviera country club we'll see if they can keep it going after this.

Kovalova looking to find some answers ben johns and anna lee waters just well they're they're relentless and really tough to beat for a reason ben and natalie played very and they get off to a good starting and.
Just getting right in a little bit of an awkward spot and third shot rob again that one it had potential but i think he needed some fighting wind to help it and if there's i mean there's just the most beautiful southern cal breeze going on right now.
Three mile an hour matt wright tries a little sneaky flick and ben will have none of it you couldn't ask for a better day for pickleball as far as the weather and the setting so johnson waters looking good.
Can they continue one zero one oh off the hand is a legal play from matt right there we'll play on that's a great job there so good hand matt right and then good finish his hand okay and that's one where only matt knows where he hit him absolutely and the rule.
Folks is anything you've got attached to the loser there's discussion of taking another look at that but i'm sorry one zero two all right got the score right from ron ponder after the discussion.
Great job by right of being ready for the poach that's a beautiful angle from matt ryan again just to go back to that your hand touching the paddle fine up the forearms most certainly not let me see again tough to tell exactly on that.
Oh just wide right hit the shot you want you want to really take that one that's close to the net and push your opponent back and just a little too wide from right there yeah what you don't want to do is there one too much of an angle on the sidelines yeah that makes for an atp so you got to.
Be careful with it that's a nice finish down the middle by ben john's there so kovaleva and righteousness as we talked about earlier just every inch is a battle one zero one point that goes wide two zero one.
Unfortunately yes good job by a couple of them getting a paddle on it three zero one okay nice stab there by right that's good matt and lucy uh needed that like a nice cross-court dink battle from lucy and.
Then have the point and with a with a matt right put away and there's another nice complimentary point of wright is going to go hard down the middle at john's kovaleva has to be ready but it's likely going to be on her backhand and she loves to sit back in so that.
Is a perfect scenario for her yeah i'll be curious to see if lucy and lee going cross court on that right side if that don't turn into anything positive for matt and lucy because lucy is such a strong crossbow thinker not that annaly isn't.
Got a couple early attempts from the ladies yes and matt right now pushing point forward here one three two what a dig by kovalova matt wright trying to find the right spots on johnson just was eyeing.
Specific targets but didn't quite jam him up and he was able to extend and find the open area yeah you could see matt wright's targeting software at work in the moment and ben's defense software was better it's like uh in top gun when you're locked onto your target there he just missed it by a hair.
411 oh matt wright goes for a two-handed backhand there and ben and anna lee had already hit two cats in that point so it's just kind of a thing in the middle of that point after the ben told emily to stay and i think she was shocked she was ready to run back to her side.
I'm going one four one that is just plain nastiness from a 15 year old she didn't telegraph it looked like she was gonna dick good job i really like matt wright is pushing.
He's staying aggressive yes um he's got such fast hands he's just putting himself up there and being a force sorry about that sorry about that you wanted them to get to the kitchen when something like that happens and then okay no one was ahead in the point but the serving team kovalev and right.
Had neutralized come on ben john's trying to challenge colin johns as the best right player in the world and then enough of this no it's me yeah not you know i like that combo of going at band three or four and.
Finding the right ball to do something aggressive with she lucy hit a great spot down the middle hey it's just hard to keep defending that amount of pace at your feet and eventually it pays off for john's in one what you don't see on that ball is that that is a pretty shallow ball too so for.
John's to be able to reach it and do something with it what i mean by shallow so close to the net that that's how good these danks have to be or he will destroy them when he comes across i'll make that one i think that's one of those that uh as we said he's got to stay aggressive.
To be a difference maker here it was attackable the right idea just not perfect execution and i think it on the one that was floating to matt he probably hadn't decided what the target was and.
Indecision he didn't have a lot of time to figure it out and the machine that is waters and john's is happy to just stink with you too so for all the flash they can hit obscene thirds like that.
One too i mean you want to talk about a ball that rolled and dipped it was heading straight down you know the tennis players watching and obviously you do not have strings on this but you can certainly swing at and hit the side the bottom of the ball water's there but just can't quite track it down and keep it in the court.
It's hard to hit a lob on the dead run because your all your momentum is pulling the ball deep 722 attack will not roll over so it is go time for kovaleva and wright ben did not hit that as hard as he could.
But he picked a great spot lucy and matt are such good defenders it's kind of shocking that ben can put that in that point without crushing that ball and that's just heavy and low seven two one.
And that's kovaleva fending off what john's is bringing and wright has got to be there to finish as he did there kovalev went from defense to offense and set matt up beautifully that is a beautiful move by matt wright and that's a.
Spot a lot of people like to hit their third so if you have that and read it and see you can not only take that away but set yourself up for an easy winner as he did there by not overhitting it well not only he did not over hit it and he put it in the right spot anna lee was waiting with her backhand and he just rolled it to.
Her right foot which made it tough tough to adjust to a couple of those for anna lee here today those are in i would call that her wheelhouse you know my coaching not that she needs my coaching is keep swinging sign out 731.
There it is okay she's cheering the ball that she just hit more from the fact that she had two similar opportunities that hit the table oh the one she just hit was much harder than those yeah harder more difficult yeah and john's flying in with the one-handed backhand and.
When these two are on and playing in control it just 931 is a really tough puzzle to solve looking very good and sitting on match point number one right here beautiful finish from matt wright he says not yet no no no.
Get the ball back you never know got it thank you appreciate it 10-3-2 okay two chances are stopped and three kids kovalova and right have a chance let's see what they do with it so.
she had her paddle in such a weird position the spin that came off it was crazy matt and lucy did a great job of changing moving their dink around and running ben all over the kitchen and kind of set themselves up for her they eventually got a ball that they could be a little more aggressive with.
Uh but had to be patient with the first 10 dinks to move side to side is down so two match points saved and a little run and they are on a one here scott so the can they keep this moving could we.
Possibly see them sneak within one and really add some pressure we'll find out right after this one two three i already told you.
Matt wright is my lawyer well matt wright isn't here izzy i've got nothing to say to you we can do this the easy way or the hard way bring me to jigsaw.
all right we're back six ten one oh and that's what they want and that's why they're smiling that is the patented kovalova rocket two-hander that just hits the tape.
Six ten two and that time okay there's the total of a fist raise gets the next one and hey just three is the deficit double bouncer goes over oh.
Okay and on a point where the wiz we're not that you were required to hit the tape and have it go over it eventually goes the way of waters and john's it sure felt like that and they've got a third chance to win this match right here and kovaleva up to the task and right finishes and.
Boy this will get interesting if they can get one more stuff okay that is pickleball ladies and gentlemen and that is what a match point should look like kovalova just outrageous in that point but it is ultimately ben johns and anna lee waters.
Who finish it off in as impressive a match point as you could ever want so they'll play morento and newman on cbs what a match we'll be right back our new eevee rental fleet is the absolute goat nice speaking of goats is that tom brady yeah he comes in to recharge get softer.
