Welcome back everybody to the PPA bubbly Team Championships they're presented by MGM rewards we are at the gorgeous Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino here in Las Vegas Nevada and now we've got an epic showdown Cameron Blackwood is here with me I'm Dave Fleming and it's a battle of the sexes we've got Anna Lee water and Jesse Irvin playing Jack sock.

And John Isner what do you think you're gonna see if Waters and urban play full out it's gonna be bloody it's it's gonna be a quick in and out here and we're gonna go to dinner early if they play full out but we'll see I I really think that you know they're gonna maybe extend the.

Rallies a little bit longer and get the guys into a rhythm and then finish out some points here I don't see them maybe going full out all right so we're gonna just play one game to 11 regular scoring win by one so uh can the tennis star show us what they've learned all day long Cameron Blackwood.

Is shaking her head saying this is going to be Irvin and Waters running them over I I'm excited I'm about to get out of this truck and hop in for a point or two and there's a great start for Isner and sock another wishing it was rally scoring because they had a point.

And a gorgeous ATP from Jesse Irvin oh and there's a lot of chatter on that court right now again everything regular scoring here two serves on your side there's Jack sock the tennis star yeah well the tennis guy scrapped together a point there but uh couldn't hang in.

There till the end so zero zero remains isner's playing much better though he's really hitting those drops that he was missing earlier today so it's gonna be a maybe more of a battle than we had anticipated but these women are coming out on top okay so Camus full woman power here as is everyone else in the truck.

I'm a girl Dad let's go ladies oh oh hi Isner pushes that return wide and there's those hands that you have seen across the ATP Tour on this Tennis Channel let's do a one Indian Wells together and played pickleball with yours truly the day before that's how much they love pickleball and.

Tennis coming together sock could play hours at a time one of the best doubles players in the game as Isner with that huge serve and that's where the guys are going to get in trouble is going to be up at the kitchen line from the back they have great ground strokes they they know how to move on the court or from tennis you.

Have a lot of Court scents so they have that but when it comes time to creating patterns with that softer touch with the dinks that's where you're going to see the ladies just come out on top and really pick their moments to hit a speed up Jam them up all right oh and a dribbler in front of Isner.

302 and I I hear some numbers being thrown out I have oh on a tough bounce of two points in a row where Lady Luck was on the side of the ladies foreign and the threat of Al and that's what's different transitioning from tennis to pickleball is you have a little bit more time tennis is a little bit slower but.

When you're in pickleball and you're up in that kitchen light things move quickly and just that little movement right there to your peripheral can cause a mishit and that's what happened with Isner oh get up Jack sock oh no and then Isner can't finish it what a get by Anna Lee there it is not a.

Tennis ball folks that pickleball is coming back yeah because sock usually hits that into the 200th Row in the tennis facilities and Irvin goes back behind sock and that goose egg looks very very very dangerous on the scoreboard we are on Tennis Channel and Isner and sock have love.

Foreign nine zip nine zero two I liked that idea from sock they're trying to go behind and soften up the game they're gonna have to extend these rallies to see if they can oh and he goes cleaner into the net that is it for.

Game number one here so we're going to take a quick break and we will return Ken Isner and sock score a point we hope so after this welcome back everybody Dave Fleming with Cameron Blackwood and you are staring at a couple of tennis stars who have won a lot of matches on Tennis Channel we are just seeing if they can win a single.

Point against two of the best women's pickleball players in the world here we go comes through and has got the crowd behind him and holds up the index finger not indicating he's number one indicating that he's got one point and that's exactly what they need to do right now.

Oh no well not that they don't need to do that but the point before what they did so well is they slowed it down they got a lot more hits on the ball and it ended up coming on top so I'd love to see them settle back in Bishops that's what they're gonna have to do is just get up to the kitchen line.

Create more opportunities pick their moments of when they're wanting to speed it up because these girls have too good of hands for for them to come out on top in those hands battles yeah I have a feeling tennis stars are going to be sharing that video with Mr sock much to his chigraine.

sneezed that little extension he's used to the what was the racket not the paddle and Jesse Irvin says hello right in the corner that was a great play by those ladies spread them apart pick the Open Court hit right behind sock.

Side out off the net court so a lot of laughter here there's a good look at Jack sock yeah let's do that again just trying to get the referee to call the score for us these boys are used to having the score called well before they're ready to serve oh and Jack sock is feeling frisky.

Run around backhand after switching sides off the tape in the corner off a dick I I mean I expect sometimes if you want to come over because you're looking to finish the point but it was just a simple switch off a dink and here we have it here we have it why not sock on the left now is there on the right okay.

And here we go big man ready three two one and they've got the lead second third bad luck off the tape there three two who has once is there a tried I'd say an ill-advised speed up there Cameron yeah and what I like I would like them to switch back I.

Like Isner on the right and I like sock on the left I think Sox just had maybe a little bit more time on core he can create a little bit more opportunity so I'd like him to go ahead and stay on the left side but maybe not there you have business John Isner says uh Cameron Blackwood hold my beer look at this little lightly.

Stay on the left side I'll give him that yeah come on man I can reach the right side from over here and John Isner finishes again so no damage done three two one look at sock Hustle and look what we have here that is a just disgusting get from Jack sock and he it.

Was unattackable that it was such an incredible it reminded me a lot of Catherine parento how she could really slide and stay low get that ball over into the kitchen good idea from his there just couldn't finish it getting a lot of encouragement from the crowd here and boy would he love to.

Serve overhand catches a line tough spin locked from sock and it's a beauty and a very sad overhead from Isner couldn't see it in the lights and yet they come through wow I am loving this confidence that after heading into game two I want to know the.

Conversation that was said and the coaching that they got from from the other teammates down there this is a different team here from Isner and sock yeah oh man they didn't need that okay so there was even a chest pump in there in the middle bad luck here so I can't believe it so it's 5-2 Tennis Pros.

Okay touch from the big man six feet ten inches of finesse he's almost the size of the entire kitchen there's a great ball too there Georgia tennis star of course won the longest match in the history of tennis at Wimbledon.

And it's now showing his touch on a pickleball court inside Mandalay Bay what a life oh and Anna Lee Waters tries to show her Finessin finds the net and we are six two one foreign forehands seven two one.

And you see the frustration with these women because when you play true tennis players in pickleball you do come out hot in the first game you get a because they're not set in yet but then you head into the second game and they're ripping these ground strokes right here and they're dropping well they really soften up their hands and.

They're playing great pickleball right now confidence hmm okay a high third the little miscommunication between these boys but that scoreboard is correct seven two is the score so two seven one Jesse Irvin the serve and socks says that is the no-go Zone Anna Lee Waters.

And what I liked is he didn't take a step back usually if you see a speed up there you step back off the kitchen line he stood his ground that's exactly what he needed to do his hands were ready to go came out on top says why is one of the best doubles tennis players in the world with those magic hands okay A little Miss.

From Isner but has played a very clean game too until that point three seven two and look it isn't her attacks Anna Lee Waters and sock finishes it good look at Lee Waters going I don't know what's happening right now but no we need to get it going and we had a switch on the women's side.

Look at her going look at John Isner finish wow these guys are on fire right now and kept that gigantic foot out of the kitchen which is not easy to do for a man of his size six feet ten.

Stock running around his backhand at the kitchen and paid the price and blamed the court we all do it I like this setup though that the change that women have made of putting waters on the right and Irvin on the left she has a really good deep slice dink that I think is going to create a lot of problems sock pull that down the line.

And sock is coming for him to leave Waters 9-3 who saw a third game in this coming not one Soul especially me especially Cameron Blackwood who'd already packed up her things you need to hang out for a minute I'm excited yeah I love this foreign okay big mountain to climb two of the.

Best competitors on the PPA tour and those two right there Jesse Irvin smiling away oh no technically the rep did call it yes but we are we are going to take that from them too all right four nine welcome to pickleball boys.

It goes for the drop shot again and then big 180 spin around nine five is the lead five nine one again regular scoring for our exhibition Zach just get that out of here says Anna Lee water sock tried to flick it over to that forehand she said no no no I didn't think these girls were no no.

and John Isner is up for the task look at this you just can't imagine that a paddle could be there whose arms are that long John isners are yes okay here they come 792 oh it just sneaks over.

Wild swing from Anna Lee water so 971 Jack sock to serve oh and a big serve and it is game point for the tennis stars ten seven one oh okay can't make the third under first chance second try for Isner and socks and two game points saved what I like is they changed around.

Everything from game one and coming into game two so they've they've done a great job of playing pickleball in this game too they have yes they're you know the girls are coming back as we thought they would anyways but they need to hold their heads up high because they have been creating a lot of good opportunities for themselves.

And taking the tennis game out of it and really picking out some good pickleball patterns and creating some confusion on the side of waters and urban I was not expecting that 8 10. uh Sak is there what a drop by Isner.

But reaching a little too much there and the lead is down two one yes nine ten two I'll faked the drop shot that he's been using I get from sock that one goes for the LOB ATP from Jack sock and we've got a.

Swirling twirling chest bump and they have another chance at a game point here and they have done it the tennis gross after getting shut out in game number one 11-0 come roaring back they were in big big trouble on the comeback from the ladies but were able to finish and we will play a third game I want it Cameron.

Didn't expect to see it but here we go welcome back everybody to the PPA bubbly Team Championships presented by MGM rewards we're at Mandalay Bay and this is something else Isner and sock shutout run over in game number one 11-0 right the ship the ship was leaking it was leaking but they got to the Finish Line win game two 11-9 who.

Will take game three and all the bragging rights that go with it just deep from Isner so the ladies get out in front early there's a good look at Jesse Irvin oh no and now a ball off the tape Cameron right did in game two they really made some.

Great adjustments they slowed the game down they started playing pickleball up at the kitchen line creating patterns picking their moments and that's why they won game two rightfully so so looking for this to be a really competitive game three foreign.

Oh my and it is the best ATP in the women's game Jesse Irvin runs it down sock was there just wasn't solid on that and a three nothing run at least to start game number three oh no and now it's four hear a lot of the men I know Ryan Sherry was over there coaching up the boys.

One of the best singles players on the tour oh hello no luck winner and they might switch sides without touching the ball yeah and that's just that's experience right there they're really starting to pull these guys a little wide then they're looking to suck sock in just a little bit opening up.

That line Hannah Lee Waters just misses getting there all right so Isner right there to serve they do get a chance to serve before the switch now can they score not with that third good energy from soccer though and way too high from sock and Irvin makes quick use of that so 501.

Five zip and Anna Lee Waters is everywhere and all that memory of game two is starting to look a lot like game number one it is so like I said these girls they're gonna go back to their experience on the core of years of pickleball and they know how to win this match.

I love the scoreboard we got the Tennis Pros boys and the PPA Pros girls so the boys have zero eleven zero let's see if they can avoid a double goose egg with a win in the middle I think they'll get some points on the board they're playing really well and they've like I said they've adjusted so well and and what I like is the movement yeah they're now.

More comfortable up at the kitchen line and playing according to their strengths a little bit more now yeah I love what they did in game two they gotta gotta find that Mojo second serve and I would like them to go down the middle a little bit more I think that's where they've gotten the majority of the.

Points because Irvin and Waters don't play together often or at all that there is that miscommunication down the middle and they've gotten a lot of free points off that good handle of the net Court by Isner and then lets it Go all right maybe it's side you know all the points have been served on that side here in game three.

and Jack stock speeds it up down the middle per Cameron blackwood's recommendation and finishes so they are on the board he's playing straight up not stacking anybody anywhere ah oh gorgeous oh Top's been lobbed from.

Sock and Anna Lee Waters tried a tween her here's a good luck from netcam just couldn't get quite underneath it and sock is there after a great defensive volley from Isner and they've cut the lead in half and you saw just how far apart Jesse Irvin and Annalee Waters were on the court that middle is wide.

Open right now boy and his nurse hitting some secretary thirds but it's got to make a less ugly fish but nice Rampage there got three it's a good look at the big man what replay can't wait to cheer his Georgia Bulldogs on in the college football playoffs a few days time foreign.

Irvin's just hanging out on the side of the Court watching it's like Al's one enough good-natured fun there so they get three see if they can get the ball back uh that is a head scratcher and that's what happens you start to get a few points on.

The board and then you think oh I'm gonna go for a little bit more a little bit more and then you go for too much second time that's what happened there with Isner let's go ahead and take a step back let's soften up those hands and let's just make the ball just a nasty Tui from Isner and a big finish.

Okay so just one there three seven one pick sir from sock keep seeing the lead back but look at her not only fight forward but blast the big man Isner started turning sideways the second that ball went up he knew she was coming in it's a great move she really does a shake and.

Bake for herself and midpoint a midpoint correct foreign and beautiful Drop oh no after some gorgeous defense stock can't get the backhand roller in there.

You heard Isner say I knew it and she knew it too unfortunately oh that was going to be a fun ball there some nice balance from stock there almost fell in okay hello John Isner he's doing well he's now he's whether he.

Knows it or not really kind of learning the slide and not that he has to move much and like I said he's almost as tall as the entire kitchen there but I really like that he's seeing the ball a little bit better and adjusting his feet too be ready to counter those balls yeah and he's got to let Zach come over and just blast that forehand opportunity there oh.

No a man who is known for his Aces single faults there that's all it takes here and pickleball obviously three points from winning the Battle of the Sexes are the ladies second turn 842 shut up no damage done okay.

Couple of nice thirds things could get Mighty interesting and why not why not Lady Luck can be on the guy's side too oh well I take those every day all the time no no sorry not sorry we're just moving on we got five oh these thirds from Isner are gorgeous.

And it's weird I've played against them the ball comes from a different plane because he's so tall you're like how can that be coming from a knee and still be in and it almost doesn't have a loft no it's the trajectory yes it is flattened and it's heavy so you see on the other side with Waters and urban when it comes down they're almost getting pushed off.

Their back foot just trying to pick up that drop like I said you give him three months it's gonna be deadly two two gorgeous forehand as Anna Lee Waters was having to cross as they chose to switch it 782 drama building here on Center Court at Mandalay Bay 7-8.

Look at that drop and those hands of sock eight eight see Kim kleinsers in the back there probably a little torn between the two because she now is an owner of a MLP team and wants to see some girls win but she's a tennis player and watching these guys oh and a very ambitious Choice from Irvin or excuse me from Isner at eight.

All okay eight eight bragging rights and so much more on the line here oh look at that ATP defense from sock inside rare Miss from Waters there too and a violent ATP I mean Ernie from sock.

He was in the air before Urban even hit it knowing I'm gonna go ahead and take this Ernie look at that beautiful Ernie from sock my goodness they get the ball back at all and another gorgeous third from Isner foreign the boys have come all the way back and.

They lead it nine eight one I would have lost a lot of money this is the city to do that in Camp oh my God and after all those beautiful thirds at 9-8 Isner can't find the range second try to get to 10 and a match point okay A little little um little crack a basket.

There we go so we're switching out the ball here my goodness just missed there too how she can let that go at 981 but uh if anyone knows the dimensions better than her I don't know who that is oh look at that drop again from Isner ladies and gentlemen they have come all the way.

Back look at the strut and Isner it is match point for the tennis stars on Tennis Channel oh no and he can't find the range on that one so a match point saved by the ladies here here you go tremendous hands from sock and Isner yeah they're really sticking to pull off of the.

Ladies paddles here very well oh no what I like is that they're doing so well is their their change of pace which sometimes you don't get right over when you come over to pickleball is it's just bang bang bang every Ball but there's a lot of finesse in their game prisoner with the mistake it's 9 10 2.

Anna Lee water speeds it up Match Point goes to the other side ten ten two uh win by one this is it okay yes just just everybody clarifying there's Annalee water wait oh the players are changing the format folks.

So you know why not all right all right so we're gonna win by two in game number three okay we won by 11 in game one so it's fine oh no Isner step back to he he better be thanking everyone for agreeing with the win by two match point for the ladies.

and another dropper from Isner so both sides have saved a match point just absolute filth on the third it's a heavy heavy third that he's hitting and he's hitting it with confidence right now it might be time to return.

Somewhere else have one three rallies in a row and they have their second match point oh and a little coaching much like they do before any serve in a big tennis match.

Oh no game one 11-0 and come roaring back to win 11-9 13-11 the ladies cannot believe what just happened and that man Jack stopped paired up with his buddy John Isner they are winners on Tennis Channel well folks we are back in the battle of.

The sexes goes to Isner and sock they get absolutely demolished 11-0 in game one they come back win 11-9 game two save a match point against and win 13-11 in game three we've got all four participants on Center Court Hannah Johns what do they have to say well welcome back everyone and what an electric match we just saw that was so.

Fun to watch you guys got pickled in game one has that ever happened before and how did you come back strong in games two and three well we got lucky first of all but uh it was kind of like the in tennis you never really want to win a set 6-0 because you're just dominating so much that's kind of what I told Jack that we had nothing to lose at.

That point but honestly we we won seven less points than they did I think if we play that back 50 times we might win once and we just happen to get lucky today Jesse did you do that 11-0 as a point of Pride did you discuss that or what happened there yeah I think we came out hot and we just you know kept swinging.

And it worked and uh that game one was a lot of fun Well Jack a couple of the pros have commented that you've got some really super soft hands you really had that part of the game down is that one faceted pickleball it's coming a little easier to you uh I mean that's I think while I enjoy it so much I love the Cat.

And Mouse stuff um the handsy stuff is always felt uh comfortable in tennis so it translates over all right it's been a blast to play with all these Pros I'm a avid watcher of the game on on the YouTube channel and everything so it's funded now finally play with everyone and I think game two and three were my favorite.

Well Al I saw you taking on Jack and a little bit of singles on a side Court how'd that go we only played to five and it was five three so you know I don't know what happened in the rest of the game but he was he was beating me five three all right I wish I could have seen the rest of that game but guys congratulations so fun to watch Dave.

Take us away that was a blast thank you guys so what a day of pickleball we had and we've got a lot of fun tomorrow so as we did today we've got two team matches back to back in the morning Billy Bush and Matt manasse will be on that call team young versus Team sock team Isner versus Team query team young.
