Thank you foreign pickleball fans Dave Fleming here and it is mans and women's doubles day thrilled to be joined by Jonas willinger in the booth today Jonah how are you brother.
I'm doing great another day the PPA Takaya showcase this one should be fun we've seen some great action already this weekend but still two more days to go we do indeed and we are going to join the match you see on screen in progress Riley Newman and Matt Wright the two seed one game one 11-6 and folks there are three mats on the court Matt manasse.
Matt Baca Matt Wright and Riley we'll just call him hello Newman so we'll go live there's only for you everybody because uh if only it would have been Matt Newman second serve oh Newman lets that go and just Clips the line yeah it's Matt Baca who sneaks one in there over the.
Shoulder of Riley Newman to kick off three zero two side up so there's Matt Manasseh the heralded Riviera Country Club coach of the Stars yes pickleball McNasty yes himself we'll see if he has some McNasty shots here in game two.
Second serve Matt Wright was on fire last night with Lucy kovalova during mixed doubles day on a show to get himself a spot on Championship Sunday already side out so again first match of the day for Newman and Wright manassi and Baca one that's their first round match.
All right well constructed point there from manasse and Baka to be sure but Matt monasi letting one go a little bit too wide there in the end set up second serve where I miss from Newman but still very comfortable here in game number two again men's and women's doubles day today.
That aggression from Matt Wright something he does so well especially on that forehand side saw an opportunity for a little speed up there jammed up manasse couldn't quite finish out the point on the monocyan Baka side much side out nice Tui from Baka there so they get the ball back to Manasseh and.
Baca down five games yeah probably a good warning from Manasseh there yeah that one lifted up quite a bit high and uh came back very fast too side out so unable to get off that ugly zero serve back to Riley Newman there's a.
Good look at them originally from Washington State second sorry no I mentioned Matt Wright and his success yesterday already but Riley Newman also had quite a day in Mexico's sister Lindsey Newman working their way to the semi-finals where they dropped it to Kohler and coop difference.
And being ready with the next ball on the next ball right is just right there and ready oh and it said hello on the top of the net for a minute waved at the crowd and then fell on the side of the two seat yesterday the higher seeds got all that so maybe we got a reversal of Fortune second serve Nazi choosing to hit that.
One it looked like that one may have been long you heard the call from Newman though when the ball came back telling Matt Wright to lay off of it the Newman's are the best in the business it's screaming at their partner to Let It Go yeah I heard that last night as well six two.
Side out and so much for the lower seed getting the benefit of the tape because manasse had a good look at that one all right this time it's Matt Wright who gets a bit of luck there clipping the top of the tape right into Matt manasse nothing much he could do yeah and I.
Think you know we've talked about the margins that you have to choose and when you're choosing two millimeters above the tape guess what you're gonna do you're gonna hit the tape a lot every once in a while point there's a frustrated Miss in Riley Newman and Matt Wright just three.
Points for moving on eight one one point now only two points of course they would love to get back to Championship Sunday to take on Ben and Colin Jones again in one of the most competitive rivalries we've seen so far this year yes a lot of work to do for.
Both parties the battles have been something else this year side out so after two Miss returns that's a beautiful return there so it's go time or no time right 191 . manassi's stepping on the gas pedal there getting aggressive himself two.
Nine one second serve that aggression will not pay off twice in a row yeah it's the right move it's just a big swing and he's not set do not push the ball deep every time side out Bach is frustrated with that third so serve back to Riley Newman there's a.
Good nine to him throughout the first pitch of the Mariners game earlier this year this ball embraced it they had pickleball night the Mariners did and pickleball the official sport of the state of Washington and here's the official match point for Newman and Wright.
Me second serve again Manasseh will hang on at least for now one more match point to try to Stave off ten two two and that will do it so a big drive from Matt right the two seed a very comfortable 11-6 11-2 Victory so this is the first of.

Go let's go foreign foreign welcome back everybody Dave Fleming here with Jonas willinger and great look man packed around the outside courts this is uh beautiful setting for pickleball the Center Court that you're getting to see.
Is if you were facing this it's behind you so it's all the way back where the camera is and we've got a good battle there in the second Court saw Hayden patricklin hit a beautiful forehand through the middle of the cousins AJ Kohler and Thomas Wilson out there.
Playing Julian Arnold out there had the upset of the day yesterday but they weren't able to build on it yesterday Jonah lost their next two matches after beating the top seed yeah I was here with Dave Benz calling that match and I'll admit there was maybe a little excitement that Julian Arnold and Mary brasha could go all the way I know.
Hannah John's when it when they when she had a chance to talk with Julian and Mary about that they said you know what we're just going to take it one match at a time they stayed humble they knew it would be a tough road and it certainly was they couldn't quite get it done yeah that road got closed now Coop and Kohler it's not like wow they lost to a couple.
Of newcomers to the Pro game they lost to a incredibly talented eight seed and that eight seed is playing tomorrow so Coop and Kohler will play as you mentioned Lucy kovalova and Matt Wright in the mixed final and we'll have all those Championship Sunday matches for you tomorrow.
Now we've got the Johns Brothers and a couple of boys from the Phoenix area Craig Johnson and Joe Prince so uh again Jonah you call a lot of sports when an underdog comes out there whether it's the Esports you do they're still better players they're.
Always better there's always somebody better well the Johns boys have the one so they're technically there's no one better in this field as it relates to the seed what do you see from the other sports that you're involved with that you've talked to those that come into a match in our underdogs what's in their mind.
Well as far as The Underdogs are concerned they can play loose because they've got nothing to lose they are up against the best and the best as is what we've got here with Ben and Colin Jones on the other side and the pressure really falls on the shoulders of the favorites it's not their game to win it's their game to potentially lose they.
Are the ones that need to be firing on all cylinders they are the ones that everyone's going to talk about oh my Ben and Colin they dropped 10 points to this nobody team those are the kind of things that the Johns Brothers want to avoid and that pressure it's not impossible but it could get to you yeah so uh just to set the record of who.
You're seeing here you got Craig Johnson to your back in the black there and Joe Prince on the other side of the net and uh hey Colin Johns if you're listening we'd love to have you on Center you may be I'm looking at some of the other camera angles I I don't see them and I I can assure you this is not a Ben Johns playing one on two uh event that uh he's.
Been known to do at some celebrity things and uh fundraisers and so forth and the guy's pretty good he can handle one on two but against these two probably not so uh sure Colin will be out on court here momentarily so while we Tracked Down Colin Johns we'll take a quick break there's a.
Beautiful look at Newport we're in California this is the peak peek-a take a showcase brought to you by Best Day Brewing foreign.
Foreign 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 a 4-0 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 like all the players all right welcome back everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger and we are back again quite a match going on on the second Court there with Patrick and Arnold playing.
Thomas Wilson who's got the ball there ready to serve on the second court with his cousin AJ Kohler and they get a freebie from Arnold there we have located Colin Johns good news we will we will have a match there's a good look at baby brother Ben Johnson uh defense maybe got a little chip on his shoulder today.
Because they got run over in the main draw yesterday did he and Catherine parento and there's video approved to Colin Johnson on the court so interesting situation coming into today Jonah yeah that's been right now the number one story of the takea Showcase the other one of course being the absent.
Of the mother and daughter Duo of Lee and Annalee Waters which we'll of course get to in a bit more detail when we actually start our women's doubles portion of the day but yeah like you said Dave Ben Johnson Catherine parento losing the number one seed dropping to the 16th seed yesterday that being Julian Arnold and Mary brasha who you.
Pointed out we saw Julian Arnold on that court in our beautiful venue a moment ago so yes a chip on his shoulder maybe something to prove maybe just a bit of regaining confidence today during the men's doubles with his brother now here's a little Ben John's fact you may not be familiar with viewers prior to.
Pickleball he played Magic the Gathering competitively mixed in Eastport I'm familiar with that yeah let's go and let's play Pickleball and that is Joe Prince missing the first one here so there's a good look at Khan oh third shot LOB my goodness okay Ben Johns there's some.
Magic and some Gathering right there yeah good to see him experimenting with a few different things he tends to do that in these early rounds of bracket play look at them smiling oh my okay what is happening side out get attacked from Craig Johnson there but third shot lob back to back.
From the two John's boys so let's keep an eye on that zero two one I can see from Joe Prince Joe Prince is an accomplished golfer to get into that throughout this broadcast now bringing that to pickleball foreign thinking about those lobs I'm taking a look at the Shadows on the court to.
Decide are those lobs will Prince and Johnson be facing in the sun actually not oh dear oh Craig Johnson hello oh he makes the swing in the miss incredible rally and then can't get to the next one oops and I'm still here and that's just the too much combo platter fun for Ben John's right there.
Yeah just whips that forehand down the line nothing not the boys on the other side of the Court could do and uh not ideal footwork for Mr Prince there on the return and in a matter of moments it took us longer to track down Colin John's than it did to get Five.
Points here so steep breath time for uh the boys from Arizona isn't it yeah like we talked about it's always intimidating going up against the big dogs and you've been in Colin Jones being the biggest of dogs out here but I mean for Johnson and Prince they just got to settle down and play loose if they can they've got.
Nothing to lose they're going up against a behemoth of a doubles team they just gotta settle in and find their stride because you know they could play a little bit better than what we're seeing they just can't get phased by some of the more theatrical tactics that Ben and Colin have already brought out so there's a look at Joe Prince the 2006.
NAIA National Champion golfer that's no joke right there no it's not I mean so he knows how to get his head in the game settle into a sport practice and grind his way so let's see if he can sink a birdie putt here on the pickleball court oh dear boy just a rope from Ben as Prince is looking for a ball on the left.
Side of his body six zero one foreign often you expect to see Ben Jones driving towards the middle of the Court just like that but on that last one prince off guard because it came down the line second serve Good Eye Joe.
Self-preservation there Joe yeah slow loopy return in the middle of the transition area is going to get punished every time loopy is fine it just needs to get to the back of the Court yes point and the step back two-handed swing when both players are up at the kitchen line from Craig Johnson here that's just.
Not open and you're out of position and it's nine nothing foreign said no Ben still hit it got a winner and we are at pickle Point here which means you get zero as an opponent side up and pickle Point Miss serve okay unusual to see so.
Zero ten at least get a little momentum going into game two assuming you don't have a 12 point comeback Craig Johnson has a very heavy forehand you saw it there so we can drive it too though it's 110. foreign this one may not be over yet but still feels like the John's boys have all the.
Momentum one table placed there by Ben Right Down the Line out and after that side out second chance to close out game number one a little housekeeping there thank you foreign court and a dominating game number one for those Brothers they're from Maryland.
They're living in Texas and they're playing some great ball in California can Prince and Johnson settle in and find their game in game number two we'll find out we're at the Takaya showcase brought to you by Best Day Brewing we'll be right back once everyone talks about the moments no one sees.
Early morning practice late night drills running it over and over crowd without the quiet everyone sees the glory the metal the podium but every winning shot starts right here paddle tech let's go again how do you get what you want Eric Weimar blind man.
Wanted to climb Mount Everest my man crazy but he believed it was possible we're gonna do it and because he believed he became the first blind person ever to stand on top of the world guaranteed rape believes in your dreams that's why we treat everyone like we treat our own family and work extra hard to get you the lowest low rate possible.
Because if you believe you will the proxar pickleball paddle answers the angel question of how to get paddle speed and control with the same paddle and one grip and this is it pro XR gives you more spin greater control and quicker reloads on every shot in the game because you always have that constant feel for that leverage and.
Control and paddle speed that we're all looking for pro XR is the most revolutionary technology in pickleball match point it's all up to me nothing can get in my way and when they ask what are you gonna do next I'll say I'm going we're going to Margarita now you can go to Margaritaville too visit.
Margaritaville resorts.com welcome back everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger with me and there's good luck at Joe Prince and Craig Johnson and just trying to get settled in that was one of the faster games you'll see it was all drive so we didn't even have sometimes you get beat with long points you're in it though.
Materialized so let's see if the golfer can knock one down the Fairway and get on the board early normally what you'll see from both Ben and Colin Johns is they're going to vary up that drive in that drop they're not going to drive every time but right now the drive is working so no need to change it.
You oh my goodness tweener what a point let's go Craig Johnson so the sun was in his eyes there and now he's got to get out of the kitchen Ghost with the tweener ends up on the other side of the Court that needs to be sent to all of his.
Family for his Christmas video oh that's a ball Prince has to let go to Johnson he's just sitting there ready to kill it that's a shot that Ben Jones has been experimenting more with recently that two-handed topspin roll from the kitchen just on the edge of the line on the return.
Attack just wide just wide side out all right so let's see if uh crazy chaos Point can uh Inspire these boys down the line turn landed right off the line after a great Serve by Prince the serve was good return was even better zero one two there's that forehand from Craig Johnson.
All right got a little pep in their step here got some crab one two support I mean Colin John's just looks you know I'm just hanging out at the buffet line here okay let me reset a ball that was drilled out so casual the way he gets that two-handed reset again Colin johns with the reply because.
Craig Johnson was coming Prince is yapping at Johnson saying hey that was a good point keep it going I agree with him sometimes they're just doing too good on the other side but the construction was much better Corey but you can't be firing up your partner and then miss the return 3-1-1.
Try from column that time proved effective yeah and then Prince has to let that next one go but he's engaged one pulls it wide 4-1 game two oh my third shot lob winner you're here there's nothing worse than using you and they don't see it so big smiles on the faces of the John's.
Boys as they walk back after their third shot Top Spin Lop so uh this is a great tournament we're thrilled to have it and it is the takea Showcase and of course it is brought to you by Takaya best day Brewing gamma pickleball Ed Wealth Management Hertz.
DraftKings and Chase can't do it without the sponsors can't do it out without the volunteers without that pickleball tournament's desk getting all these amateur matches you see out here a thousand players playing out here Jonah and the referees Mary.
Namie is our head referee with Don Stanley supporting her in this match and Don Stanley of course is the guru of all the referees on the PPA tour so timeout called after the third shot lob clean winner we're at 5-1 and another missed return cannot happen well this is the side of the Court where those third shot lobs are going to be.
Even more effective because Johnson and Prince they're looking right into the sun second serve hammered but catches the tape see that hand see what Prince is showing Johnson indicating that they're going to switch sides oh dear another mission.
They can't afford this this late in the game sometimes switching sides creates that because your momentum is in a hurry to get over there side out there's that two-handed reset attempt from Colin Johns yet again in his own words that is one of his favorite shots to him unfortunately that.
Time no dice second serve that's a tough mono Amano for Prince right there as Ben Johns loves the two that dipping backhand one-handed just down and hard oh dear that's a double off the wall on the serve so Prince a little too revved up here.
Seven one one this has got that Selkirk paddle he was doing his best Tyson McGuffin impression there but just putting it a little too much on that serve SWAT team from Ben John's right there and it is 9-1 -1 foreign.
Bake does not work left the brownies in the oven a little too long too is that out close on the Baseline but Colin John's really going for a serve here and there's not a ton of room behind the court as you see there so bigger serves are a bigger problem in this court Time Prince gets away with the Scorpion.
Above his head but this is so much easier a ball watch where Craig Johnson is he's ready to just destroy it but they got away with it they got the point two nine one foreign so two of the three points they've gotten has been a byproduct of that good.
Luck from Arizona second serve if the dink doesn't bounce your partner is in jail first real dinking exchange we've actually seen in this game this match even challenge of switching sides or unwinding the stack if you don't get.
There in time yeah the quality of Johnson you're gonna be in trouble we wouldn't need a hurricane Gus to get that one over to the other side so they've got a couple 9-4 foreign the wind picked up a little bit today compared to the last two days of.
Competition but not to the hurricane certainly not and we're at match point and Prince is barking at Penn John's who is laughing look at this full swing this is only trying to hit on and there he goes all right Match Point number two oh and Ben goes for the fake Drive.
And misses the follow-up and I'm entertained yeah it does it all with a smile on his face that's good to see maybe going for the intimidation strategy with that big windup 410 too oh my this is on purpose too okay Point all right we've gotten some a little circus into this match here at.
Least they're having fun casual Olay from Colin Johnson let's see what Madness transpires on Match Point number three completely Miss serve and we'll go quickly to match point number four foreign Johns take out Johnson and Prince third.
Shot lobs blasting the ball at each other Ben even got tagged there at the end but uh just way too much from the Johns boys little fake little wave of the Cobra there so Johnson John's moving on and they will have a tough match in their quarterfinal they'll have Chuck Taylor and Dylan Frazier waiting for them we will have quite a match for you.
Coming up and then just to remind everybody all the finals are played tomorrow on Championship Sunday starting at 10 A.M Pacific time so five amazing matches tomorrow will be there for your viewing pleasure so we'll be back more men's doubles right after this.

welcome back everybody it's men's and women's doubles day here at the PPA takea showcase for the tennis and pickleball Club in Newport Beach and we got Maddie kazali and Ryan Gilbert coming up against Tyler loong and Colin.
Dawson and kazali and Gilbert have a real nice win coming into this match they took out a talented Duo of Rob Cassidy and Anderson Scarpa and they did it in straights 12 10 11-5 so they are the 20 seed they're playing the four seed Tyler loong Callan Dawson this team has done damage all year long and we'll get that.
To that in a second and you can see Wilson and Kohler are still in a what must be an epic battle of Julian Arnold you see Hayden Patrick and the youngster jumping up and down getting those feet moving over there they've switched sides a couple of times so it doesn't take much to know that that means we must be in game three so.
There's a good look at Tyler loong gonna be seeing some crazy athleticism Jonah yeah they call me Ernie king for a reason he's a monster left-handed player one of the very few out here on the pickleball court and uh well he's incredibly good at earn he's not only in the execution but just finding more early opportunities to hit than your.
Average player players ready all right Maddie time in zero zero two zaley the serve he's a lefty let's play Pickleball right away you'll take a look at Callan Dawson you'll see his unusual grip more of a ping-pong grip than most players will have many kazali also rocking a.
Similar grip side out flicked by Gilbert goes deep so Tyler back and the lob doctors got the love going right away and just misses it wide so Kyle and Dawson will be lobbing all day long and as we saw in our prior match beside the kazali and Gilbert are on is going to be.
Tougher to see the ball son right in their eyes when they look up and go for those lobs so more even even more threatening when you see Dawson one zero one foreign players stacking their forehands in the middle of the court so good communication thereby tell Gilbert that.
He had that one point and hot start here so good win under their belts and good start on Center Court here for the 20 seed second serve medic is nearly a big Runner competed in several marathons in the past so I.
Expect to see some of that athleticism on the court side out and you'll have to send him a apology note talking about Gerald didn't talk about his serving he talked about his running so we'll give you a pass oh dear Point Ryan Gilbert is angry at our video board apparently is that was a.
Direct hit one three one another shot at that but that's not how it works so one three such a smart read from Gilbert you see the panic and you could hear Tyler loon yelling go go go and nowhere else for Dawson.
Point yeah because they only pop that one up much too high especially against Tyler loon with the reach once again that athleticism he's gonna be able to get almost every ball you hit his way foreign Dawson comes up short so kazali Gilbert three two one up one here in game one.
Second is the countering prowess of Callan Dawson who's able to fend off kazali who came at him a couple of times and then he finishes more dinks than that than in our entire last match in that point so after handling some much more difficult balls Dawson leaves that dink in the kitchen.
So four two two because Haley as you mentioned flying everywhere Point good coverage there from him too making sure to clean up that space that Ryan Gilbert had left him on this Ernie you can see him there in that forehand to just drop it right by the feet of Dawson toads were very tight to the kitchen.
There and who would have thought earlier in the match Ryan Gilbert Ernie count two Tyler loong zero it's a stat that Ryan Gilbert should maybe write down save that one for later two five one let's go.
tremendous Point ends unfortunately with a little roll Miss from Dawson but the fire fight was fantastic we talked about the counter punch ability of Dawson that's what he's known for that insane backhand counter punch just didn't favor him too much there though point.
Azalea has been very patient with his choices until that one so uh three five here in game three five two one good luck for Callan Dawson just to unable to finish five three one a couple errors now that Dawson definitely wishes he could do again that's the Tyler loon we know.
Five three two oh we had bumper cars but they're gonna get out of it side out so Gilbert has been flying all over this court a little too much flying needs to cut back the flight plan just a little bit but still nice three five one nice start for this match for the 20 seed.
Foreign can't happen can't give ground on that that's a ball you can take out of the air or just steady don't give ground on the ball that doesn't have any Pace on it second I'm gonna add some Pace Loom blasted that one at Medi kazali but once again good hands from kazalia.
And side out Tyler encouraging him and that's that black Ace or Ace of Spades as I love to call that paddle it's just coming out from Pro Connects that one turned into a frisbee there at the end point and now a Miss returns so 6'4 Brian Gilbert good look at him right there to Sir six four one.
Second serve another Drive attempt from kazali really favoring that drive so far haven't seen more than a few drop attempts from him six four two third shot the loud fifth shot six one didn't work point kazali ain't shy about just coming like hey here we go and five six one the head.
Up battle with Callan Dawson will continue I didn't know they'd do it on the next point but it's uh it's fun that neither player will back down this is why we love pickleball we're at five six here here we go players great timing on that five six two I love when the players do that for me.
Side out okay so a lot of high octane pickleball a couple of dank rallies six five one just why second service anytime you hit one of those you're like I'm gonna just put out the good we hope he'll throw out look it's good shoot his hand out oh that was good no no what side out too high on the drive there if.
It's too high it's death and that last point I like that we saw Ryan Gilbert actually get on the aggressive start to that point he was the one who sped it out good to see Gilbert and kazali despite their opponents still playing fast Tyler loong is the bronze medalist and yelling at your partner to Let It Go.
B doctor oh my God beautiful left-handed overhead by kazali there this is not an easy shot he was a little off the line which actually helped him avoid a push-off football there so advantageous where the toes were can put out that that ball was good because it was just curled that Lefty just inside the line.
Six six one quite a battle here in game number one Point Dave these teams have actually met before at the PPA championships in the consolation bracket this exact same matchup occurred Ryan Gilbert 15-13 the final score with Logan Dawson taking it but a close game you got two backhands in the middle for.
Kazali and Gilbert to see if they go there point so they don't identify that and try and go on the outside in there yes so eight six eight six one second sir that is that is the pattern tough Miss there for Ryan Gilbert in.
Addition to being a budding pickleball player quite an accomplished golfer in Nevada his home state he is a PGA Pro side out there's the ridiculous power that comes from that black Ace paddle that's just starting to come out fans have been asking foreign using it ah stupid point.
And a very patient Point had a very impatient ending there as timeout receiver and uh they'll call timeout one step back speed up when both players are sitting there on the line not a good choice but a lot of good choices prior to that so as Jonah mentioned these guys had a very tight battle a few weeks ago and we are.
Here again it's tight here in game number one at the PPA takea showcase foreign people look at the orchard security guy and go what a joke he's got electrolytes on his.
Chest he's got electoral rights and a squirt gun do I look like I'm a joke funny to me hold on welcome back everybody Dave Fleming with Jonas William and uh quite about 71 four seed are down one.
Because Haley and Gilbert just called timeout point and good Matrix move from Callan Dawson who had one headed right at his face eight eight snowmen everywhere foreign he could have not shown us his hands and just let that hit the back wall but you.
Know why not get a winner points who is going to Blink and Ryan Gilbert just could not help himself and that's a bad choice there and nine eight one he's the server on that side Gilbert Just very disappointed in the choice here we go that he made 982 gotta find a better ball than that one he jumped back on a ball that was too.
Low in the previous point but that one certainly high enough to attack properly he does and they get the ball back to serve eight nine one point and a little indecision from Callen Dawson there was about to attack it and then chose not to and that's not a problem and it was there.
Point and Gilbert steps in and speeds it up and they have game point number one yes you are ten nine one second serve and I'm saying kazali has been going at Dawson and Dawson's the one that's having to run and yet he goes to these two more stable Loom second chance at game number one.
Side out so two tries thwarted 9-10-1 foreign serve I love the setup here because all four players are dinking on their backhand sides there are no cross-court forehands right now.
So I go point and that grind goes to Loon so the pace has slowed down now it is who can play a professional point and grind it out it's gonna take more than 11. we're at 10 all hear me and what from Tyler long after an epic.
Point several balls off the net and goodbye and now they've got a game point put his whole body into it you saw the leg up the legs snap higher motion into hitting that ball hard foreign.
that finishes on their first try 12 10. this is a matchup meant to be two-point games we mentioned when they played before we'll have the second game we hope it's as compelling as the first we'll have that for you right after this thank you.
thank you again not yet buddy podiums are reserved for winners no one ever said getting there would be easy.
So we work we drill we train and while we do whatever it takes to gain even the slightest Edge found our biggest Electra has the most grit to spin and Touch without sacrificing any power electrum earn your Edge foreign.
welcome back everybody just a quick score update from the outer Court we were watching a couple of points of Wilson and Kohler versus Patrick and Arnold and I was like I think this is really close it was every bit really close 11-9 in the third for Wilson and.
Kohler they'll move on and face an unknown opponent in the quarters noted at the end of game one Dave things kind of slowed down as the feeling out was just between these two teams finally finally concluded for Gilbert there this team's communicating well you can hear them.
Saying who's got those middle balls mentioned all those Four Hands In The Middle on this chord point sorry not sorry one a piece targeting Dawson with those drives now that might stay in and it will.
Foreign fighting his way back into it and then a nice little Inside Out forehand here from lung and here we go kazali is on the ground one one two he's no worse for where good look at Ryan Gilbert side out they've been driving everything he sort.
Of went for half and half and that usually ends up in the net one one point very cash on that one for Gilbert yeah just kind of swatted at it didn't really get low bend the knees and it is zero and loon gets tagged on that one.
It's the Ernie King who gets ernied wow okay two one two side out tough ball to attack that ball checked up and had Dawson's footwork uh not where it usually is the college baseball player has one test feat in the game but uh spin can mess you up sometimes.
Boy that was probably wide but we'll never know you just gotta keep with that strategy Ernie King swinging a Miss no food on the King's Buffet usual Ernie Miss from him three two one a little too far for that long reach foreign keeps telling himself not to do it and.
He keeps doing it so gotta settle in here three two two points again who initiated that fire fight and it worked out well yeah Gilbert I don't know if he beat him yes you tell from our vantage point side out first Miss wide on the drive from kazali.
We've seen him Miss once or twice in the net there but first time he missed entirely point three four one foreign nice job of identifying the open chord and puts it there Gilda had the space but he just didn't.
Quite have the execution didn't keep it low enough so Loom was able second serve Gilbert is definitely putting pressure on so uh he needs to keep four forward to do that just pick his spots wisely foreign doctor Choice huge degree of difficulty.
When it was that low because aliens two for two now getting those lobs back hands aren't quick enough for that one though four four two okay and that's a beautiful ATP from Gilbert.
There first ATP of the day at that Gilbert really patient right between the legs five four two side out again kazali has been consistently attacking Straight Ahead tries the middle and that is no goes down waiting for it the.
Middle is scary with all the forehands in there right now point s Gilbert telling himself to leave that we agree letting it go is a skill point timeout receiver again for Gilbert gotta pick one spot's a little better when.
He's done and made those smart choices he's been a menace but uh few mistakes there too so loong and Dawson have snuck in front in game two of this very even battle foreign.
The most important part about Tuesday night pickleball at the orchard is the net every Tuesday 4 30 a.m you're sleeping I'm not I'm measuring the height I'm measuring the length I'm measuring the circumference and I'm measuring the tension who does tension we do.
Welcome back everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger here you did the research they played a close one before we've got a close one here can the four seed finish or will we go look at Tyler lung right there oh hello Ernie finally he's on the board with an Ernie.
Haven't been very many dinks up the line so 3-1 Gilbert but uh key moment in time for the first one from Tyler loon and that is the combination that works so well for this Duo first time we've seen kazali not get that ball out of the air behind him had to recover couldn't so coming out of the timeout it's actually been all loong and Dawson.
Oh tweener double tweener come on Tyler Loom okay that Ernie that he hit a moment ago couldn't have come in a better time he's feeling himself now one two tweeners then lets that ball drift out oh no and after a brilliant rally we are at Match Point here folks.
and it is a Dawson attack that finishes so a very tight match a timeout was called that typically favors the timeout caller not in this case lung and Dawson erupt after the timeout the Ernie the double tweener and ultimately the lob doctor got one over kazali's head and they look really good that's the way you.
Want to finish a match finish it strong here's that last point where Dawson makes kazali Miss deep so the four seed is moving on and folks here's what we've got we've got all the quarterfinals stacked up for you in the next match is gonna be a doozy the Johns boys are back on Center Court and it'll be Chuck Taylor and Dylan Frazier on the other.

See the boys the brothers dressed in Maroon here's Ben Johnson there up at the kitchen line Dylan Frazier is next to him on the far side Chuck Taylor ripping forehands there he is tremendous player from Utah we saw what Dylan Frazier can do and he and Ben.
Johns had an epic singles match earlier in this very tournament on this very court that Ben John was able to take so that eight seed can always be a very dangerous situation and in mixed doubles yesterday not just dangerous but playing on Sunday Coop and Kohler were the eight seed yesterday and they will play for a title.
What do you expect to see here Jonah I mean it's hard to know exactly what the Frasier Taylor combination has in store not something we've seen at least in recent history and Dylan Frazier as an individual he's incredibly threatening and he has the unique ability to team up with so many different partners just over the last.
Few tournaments he's been playing with a handful of different Pros he's playing with Zane navratul he's playing with DJ young J.W Johnson Rafa Hewitt he's played with so many different guys and to build that chemistry with different people is tough so interested to see how he's able to mesh with Chuck Taylor here and what they can get done and I can.
Assure you the court is not a trampoline but it looked like it let's play Pickleball okay Chuck you want to drive it there Ben says absolutely not foreign ER another Ernie lover and it was a great job by Colin Johns of just handling that and getting back in.
The court so first point goes to the top seed points in this is already shaping up to be quite a match that time Taylor did not get the right contact that he was looking for aside from that though well constructed foreign Paul just deep so 3-0 for John's and.
Johnson in the middle of that point Chuck Taylor changed his grip about seven times he got two zero two fuses to which shot he wanted to hit interesting yeah several times there where it looked like Taylor got himself in a little bit of trouble whether that was with his paddler with his footwork he was getting.
Pushed around the court a good bit that was well executed by Colin and Ben to make that happen picture point could handle the speed up there from Taylor and you know when you're looking for an Ernie a lot you will put your feet in a strange position if you don't.
Get a ball that you like second solid he liked I mean speaking of Ben John's loved that one gift wrap for the holidays one two two foreign Taylor can bring the forehand but uh brought it just a little too wide so this is quarter final number one second serve and of course Jonah you do.
Not get extra points for hitting that Guaranteed Rate sign so two one two one two foreign fiery from Ben Johns as always three one two point and a beautiful ATP from deep in the court that is much more difficult to execute because your angle isn't as good.
Well done by Ben Jones okay clean back in there from Frazier leaving no doubt whatsoever over his shoulder takes that one-handed backhand and just puts it right down the boulevard sliding between the John's boys one for what.
What second serve 142. foreign quick side out John's get it right back that's not what you want when you are in a hole but uh sometimes you can get it back just as fast we'll see if they can foreign that just kisses off the tape and goes.
Wide so very patient point a good discipline from everyone involved Point reset clinic and then speed up from Colin Johns that's why he is a special compliment to everything that Ben can do never gets old watching Colin Jones reset the ball boy timeout receiver is coming and it most.
Definitely is so the top seeds looking very good and comfortable here up 6-1 in game number one this is our first quarter final of the day we'll have the ladies later we'll be right back the most important part about Tuesday night pickleball at the orchard are.
These cameras this is the Canon 6r44-2b we got a red light situation here ah there we go green light all right that one's done 35 more to go welcome back everybody timeout called by Frasier and Taylor foreign.
And you see them now switching sides in the middle of the point Frazier and Taylor have chosen to just take sides but now they're going to try and get Taylor over to the left it looks like exactly what they did so the Johns Brothers you know where they're going to be Fraser and Taylor have decided that.
Maybe we are better off Taylor on the left we'll see if that strategy is a good one foreign with a new partner trying to find what works best for you takes a while to get that chemistry down oh my Ben Johns desperately wanted to win that after the track down then he.
Gets the lob then he gets the drop shot then he had the Scorpion and great law by Taylor no question about it same guy so 7-2 game one quarter final number one second serve seven two two oh that is a tremendous finish.
He's got the best backhand one-handed role in the game and that is not an easy spot to hit a winner from good communication between the brothers as well been telling Colin to lay off so he could take it for a train of Ben Johns is flying nine two two.
Shot live we saw it earlier point and it works and ten two the side switch has nine two Frazier and Taylor point game freight train is flying down the tracks everything that is the Johns Brothers and why they're the top seed was there the resets and counters from.
Colin Johns and then the ferocity that you'll see here from Ben Johns way too much in game one talented players on the other side will Taylor and Frazier be able to Rally we'll find out when we come back let's see foreign.
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 a 4-0.
Ratings don't have to be hard duper optimized for accuracy optimized for fun download the app and claim your free profile today foreign foreign all right folks welcome back you see Ben and Colin Johns uh oh that's danger laughing it up on the left side.
Of the screen there and Chuck Taylor and Dylan Frazier okay Chuck Taylor's trying to get the crowd fired up he is a emotional player that if he can get going the crowd would love a third game but a lot of work to do to get there no point Colin Johns can bring those speed UPS to so many different parts of your body you.
Have to defend one zero two off and running in game two point Taylor losing it a little bit here needs to get it back two zero two foreign distance ATP from Ben Johns that time Frazier is on it so two quick ones zero two one two.
John's Brothers second serve zero two two foreign one two two side out so Chuck Taylor just a little off kilter here missed a return Mr well deep there so they gotta go now.
Second recovery there with the backhand sliding that one all the way across the court even Ben Jones couldn't get it foreign no dice that time though same shot that one-handed backhand roll not happening yeah come and Cross Court punching it straight ahead is a different swing and couldn't handle that.
One oh they're gonna switch them back over there and that's a problem so they don't know where to put each other and it's been a theme throughout this match yeah different positions for the last three points just keep on shuffling it around still Taylor being targeted on these drives foreign.
Defense for days there were the johns but it is the pressure of Taylor and Frazier that gets the ball back let's see if that is that little spark that can ignite them second serve that Ball's got a bounce or you put your partner in so much trouble one four two tweener.
And that stays in nice counter from Taylor we had the cash resets of Colin Johns in there a tweener from his brother but it is Taylor with the final answer point and they're trying to keep Frasier honest keeping it towards that right side not allowing him to cheat middle.
But Ben not able to get it over the network side out so that crime goes to the Johns Brothers so they get the ball back the lead is now just one four three one good patient point there from everyone patient there though that time from.
Taylor just tried to find that extra angle jumping across the kitchen line on that Ernie but just clip the top of the tape yeah and the reset Clinic from Colin is so good that he leaves it in that shallow Victory kitchen that is I love to call it you can't earn you that ball so tight to the net.
Second serve just wide and one rules note there if Chuck Taylor goes to Ernie doesn't touch the ball he cannot cross the plane the extended net line there and run on the other side or that would be a fault he did not there foreign that time both Ben and Colin doing a really good job of just applying that.
Pressure to both Taylor and Frazier we've seen Ben targeting the right hip of Taylor really well point after point boy and it is all the tricks of Colin John's over there on the right side now working setting himself up pressure pressure pressure seven three side out that ball hit the wall off the tape it.
Was struck so hard three seven one just so second serve flying Ernie from Ben Johns creates the error love that little extra finesse he puts in there raising his other arm up looks so nice Showtime oh and this goes back door and Dylan Frazier looking for a ball in the middle.
Of the Court 3-1 second serve it's the one Ben wants seven three two Point textbook ATP from Colin Johns Ben then on the follow-up slid over to the middle of the court to cover the ATP defense from Dylan Frazier than that.
Second shot from Frazier just too hard I'll recall the score yes you are eight three two oh my oh Colin John's trying to will one of those classic resets over and the ball sat on the net and said hello the crowd just loves in that Court they love it ball sat on the tape waved hello ate a salad.
Second serve three eight two just haven't found the pattern in the style that's working Chuck Taylor tries to go Tyler Long only as a righty as if he hit two in the last match in a single point ball back quickly 8-3.
All right yes please we're still going and now we're taking oh my god wow a tremendous heads up duel with Frazier and John's and then Ben tries to speed up the two-handed backhand down the line and.
Frazier was ready that's great pickleball right there side out you know that's a place you don't want to stick your paddle Ben Johns is right back there Colin tried a left-handed step three one style points are one thing but not the right choice three eight.
This could be a little momentum shift it was first that hands battle with Frazier that Taylor and Frazier came out on top then Colin with that error now they've got a point on the board foreign 's there Frasier cheating a little bit too much.
To the middle 42. Ben Jones made him pay side out such great manipulation of the paddle from Ben John's there to be able to take a ball right in front of his body with the two-hander and punch it down the line Fraser City backhand couldn't handle it boy I have been loving this battle though.
Between Ben and Frazier usually a matchup you see on the singles court but right now they are just going to war second serve deep return from Taylor 942 no point and we are at match point for Johns and Johns timeout receivers ten four two one.
Minute so the winner of this match will face the winner of so many John so many Johnsons the Johnson Brothers who will play Tyler loong and Colin Dawson and lots of big news in the pickleball world over the past two weeks we had the MLP announcement merging with PPA to have the PPA players.
Playing in that so that's going to be great to have all these players in MLP again playing Team Style with the best players in the world and then earlier this week duper was adopted by pickleball.com and PPA and one rating system so unification is great for the game great for.

And look at this it is a ATP where Ben ends up on the other side of the court and those are the ones you just love because you can smack it so low so hard across the court the net is your friend in that case so Ben and Colin Johns really impressive in the first quarter final of the day all right folks we saw the draw we said can this happen can't.

welcome back everybody Dave Fleming here with Jonas willinger and it is for those of you that like chirping for those of you that like a little chaos a little chatter across the net you have come to the right place.
For the match you are about to see when these guys last played it was high energy High Octane and high conversation between the two sides and I just hope we get the carbon copy of that the pickleball level will be strong you're gonna have two very unique grips obviously we talk a lot about the grip that Riley Newman uses that pancake grip.
Really favors the forehand well Jeff Warnick the LA area native himself does the same so forehand heavy grips will be everywhere Jeff warnick's partner West Burroughs has probably one of if not the biggest forehands in in all the pro game and then you've got the two seed Riley Newman and Matt Wright who are ready to.
Show why they deserve that seed and why they play consistently on Championship Sunday that's going to be awesome Jonah Championship Sunday Newman and Wright go hand in hand with each other at this point same goes for Ben and Colin Johnson we just saw a moment ago that's an iconic match-up.
That we've seen time and time again which has gone so many different ways on so many different occasions that's obviously where they're hoping to get but in order to get there they still have to get through some tough opponents as you mentioned Dave we've got Jeff Warnick we've got Wesley Burrows and this one should be exciting this one.
Should get Rowdy we saw our fans a moment ago getting super excited I think Hannah Jones was running back and forth throwing some T-shirts around getting everyone ready to go for what should be the Marquee matchup of the day so far like you said we're gonna see some chirping we may see some stare downs from Matt right down to the other side.
Of the court but right now they're just getting warmed up getting dialed in as you can see another view of our beautiful facility at the tennis and pickleball Club at Newport Beach not only so many matches going on we're seeing some consolation matches happening right now but in the background Your sponsorship tents so.
Many fans going around watching matches hanging out at the tents maybe getting a little bit of Swag some stickers buying a water bottle here and there from our of course namesake sponsor Takaya so much going on in an amazing venue all weekend long indeed you can see one of the other quarterfinals you see the twins right there Johnson Brothers.
Playing Tyler loong and Colin Dawson so the winner of that match will get the Johns Brothers and Wright and Newman versus Warnick and Burroughs which we are about to see we're just getting some cameras squared away here so we can bring that to you they will get the winner of devillier and McGuffin versus Wilson and.
Kohler so the quarterfinal matchups leading to the semis are going to be some epic pickleball but this is the one we're excited about so there you see Colin Dawson getting rocked by the Johnsons there and the ladies are warming up in the background as you see as well so there the pro bracket for.
Them will start here momentarily now we're keeping an eye on the ladies bracket as well to see which of these games we're gonna bring to Championship court because after this it looks like we'll have some of these women's doubles matches coming your way but men's first as we are wrapping up one of these few remaining quarterfinals as we start to.
Get a clearer picture of our semi-finalists and eventually our finalists going down to Championship Sunday good look at Center Court crowd is packed in around it is to set expectation of the players Wes Burrows is on the right side of your screen and the left.
Side of the court with the hat on backwards Jeff Warnick will return Matt Wright to serve this is going to be fun let's play Pickleball Miss right out the gate is only going to fuel Mr Warnick zero zero one you must return and here we go back to back it's already talking.
Oh my and he goes for the nasty Nelson which is trying to hit your opponent on purpose with the serve to get a point and Wright Dodges it wow we are full on to start Four Points in and it's already getting loud not today says Jeff Warnick foreign Don Stanley the referee.
And Riley Newman gets the tag of Warnick Burroughs and Warnick come in with an impressive win over Pat Smith and Steve deakin so they're playing good pickleball today second it's that unique grip one on both sides of the Court zero two two in the pickleball World Burrows known.
For his chaos his high risk High reward play so far we've only mostly seen that from Warnick but expect to see some of that more spicy play from Burrows soon enough and Riley Newman jumps in the middle and curls one in and we're knotted at two two point.
And the two zip early start has been erased and now right and Newman are up 3-2 foreign punch there from Matt Wright to get the point four two two sign out I think drive for Newman comes up short.
So Burrows warnicks jumped out quick now a couple second serve and Matt Wright enjoyed getting to call that survey and the quickest of holds for Newman and Wright yeah they get the ball back just like that.
Four two one tremendous ATP from Riley Newman as Burroughs runs around his forehand but then gives way too much angle to Riley Newman questions that shot from Riley a moment ago I mean obviously the shot execution was perfect but to get there the footwork really got.
Him into position he was all the way in the middle of the Court saw that ATP opportunity coming so he slid all the way over quickly to find that opportunity six in a row for Newman and right after a very entertaining start that included a failed nasty Nelson attempt by Jeff Warnick we knew there'd be fireworks we.
Didn't know what it would be but it is the two seed that is off and running so you can see the crowd packed in around this Warnick and Burrows both from the LA area so this is a home match and it's nice to Jonah just jump out of your own bet and come play Pickleball at the highest level oh for sure and they've done I mean a great job so far.
Regardless of what happens here in this quarter they've already had you know two pretty challenging opponents getting to this point they played against biggie Markowitz and Kyle Lewis they took that one then of course Steve deakin and Patrick Smith the 10 seed of over the seven seed in that round to 16 matchup in three games so they've done their job.
They have gotten out of bed and had some fun playing some pickleball at the highest level but now they'd like to take it the next level and it would be quite a statement at that to take this show right to Championship Sunday or at least into the semi-finals if they can get this one over Newman and right.
And a big yell from Matt Wright nice defense of the ATP from Burroughs and it is Newman swinging away and finishing and beautiful complimentary pickleball from Newman and Wright foreign pickleball is a great phrase because it really emphasizes how important chemistry is between those two partners.
Awareness of where your partner is going to be on that court and then to execute the shot that's a whole other thing and speeds it up inside out and Matt Wright and he pushes it wide so five is the deficit showing that they're comfortable on both sides.
Yeah and the Burrows forehand plays a big role you do not want to be caught running across the court with him hitting that oh he saw the Warnick forehand two there twice in a row first one good second one Hill advised right into the backhand now they'll get back to their preferred sides.
And it is the dink battles that Wright and Newman are putting pressure on Burrows foreign there just on the serve as well forcing the error on the return 9-3 Newman and right sitting pretty what and another attack on a ball out of the.
Air right reaching in and after a hot yes chaotic loud start for Warnick and Burrows they're staring down a game point quickly they survived the first one but another opportunity now Matt Wright with the ball ten three two so there's the punch from Jeff Warnick.
So two game points say three Newman speeds that one up right into the backhand of Warnick who denies it straight up Burrows was there and pegs his partner in the back wow I think Warnick just didn't think that Burroughs could get there didn't bother ducking or moving out of the way hit some Square in the.
Back that ball definitely going over the net oh without question that's it three two love the big ouch graphic that we saw on the background there our DJ having fun with the players third try for Newman and Wright and that will do it so a loud a fun and interesting start for Burrows and.
Warnick but way too much right and Newman throughout this and again a patented two-handed flick from Riley Newman closes the door on game one so will Warner can Burrows have a reply we'll find out this is the PPA and this is the takea Showcase presented by Best Day Brewing foreign.
What if you could have Shades like these for a fraction of Big Brand prices with Shady Rays you can we're an independent company so we do things differently we offer high quality polarized shades for a reasonable price and we personally replace any pair that gets lost or broken and so far we've racked up over a hundred thousand five.
Star reviews I founded Shady Rays so that we could have sunglasses that stand up to whatever life throws at us order now and get 50 off two pairs at Shady rays.com we owe great times to good friends to the glasses that spark conversation to the ideas that then pour out hours came from a night like that and somehow.
Survived the morning after to make our own tequila wasn't meant to leave our house since we made this for friends we thought it wouldn't hurt to make a few more grab a glass Amigo our tequila your tequila our casa is your Castle.
foreign welcome back everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger and it was very loud at the start you can see the scoreboard encouraging the fans.
To be louder Jeff Warnick was a lot quieter in this back half of this first game as it was all Newman and Wright we'll see if they can get it cranked up here in game number two Sun out yeah started off hot started off with the energy with that momentum and yeah a.
Little bit of chirping but since then it was zooming right the whole time second search quick little hands battle and there you see that just zero zero two wild grip that Warnick uses it's so effective uh.
Yeah yeah okay all right decibel levels increasing and that's the way they win so it's part of the game zero zero let's drop the ball back that's a great ball from Burrows right there that's well placed he saw Newman just favoring the middle there figured that that ball would come straight down.
The boulevard but instead Inside Out forehand to the outside of the Court painting that line foreign cake and it is Newman that has the most syrup there let's go this time it was Newman bringing the heat War next Direction instead of the.
Other way around we've seen Newman be very prepared for those speed ups but not necessarily winning the point even with that preparedness simply left that one up too high poked at it with his backhand and just lifted it to the forehand of Matt Wright of Mr right right there.
Burroughs had a very good look at an Ernie there but then didn't do enough with it and then there's nothing good coming from that ball was coming in looked like he may have thought it was going to drop a little bit shorter so he played for the safe bet rather than going aggressive.
Was going to destroy that ball but Matt's backhand snuck in there inside out more like saying he has no idea where it's going okay truthfully Riley Newman did kind of get crossed up there couldn't choose a.
Forehand or the backhand side one two one big smile on Jeff warnick's face bless Burrows forehand you want to avoid that on the returns second song you can see where Burroughs is standing right now just got pushed way off the kitchen and that's pressure.
From Riley chest with dinks alone so skillful again Burrows forehand power three two two gotta avoid it gave him another one too much power way too much there someone he wants too he's talking to himself on the way back.
two three one oh that just stays on the line Point Burroughs couldn't believe that stayed in looked like it was floating but it's possible the wind coming from the back of Warnick and Burrows here may have kept it in.
Great job by Riley Newman used his Newman willpower to get that one on the tape over on the other side he does have a magic power yeah we saw both the Newman's doing a very similar thing last night it was actually very fun to see and it apparently works so keep doing it Point Miss return and this is what.
Happened in game number one a hot start for Warnick and borrow so smart time feeling that momentum getting away from them just a bit so they're gonna cool this down we'll cool it down as well it is the top seed in this match in the second seat overall hoping to play on championships Sunday tomorrow that'll be at 10 A.M.
Pacific we'll be right back thank you the most important part about Tuesday night pickleball at the orchard this door this is the door where the pros come in it's my responsibility a lot of people will do a simple lock unlock test I do a.
34 point inspection top to bottom left to right no door no Pros no Pros no pickleball good look at the number two scene Matt Wright and Riley Newman and.
Whatever Matt Wright just said Riley Newman said for sure so even their conversations are on point here and they look they look fantastic they've been able to avoid the chirp Fest that was their last match we'll see if Warner and Burroughs can get going out of the timeout what's up.
Boys powerful on the forehand of Riley Newman good to see him taking that space both Newman and Wright both crowding the middle comfortable on either one of those but right deferring to The Logical Choice the forehand of Newman there foreign.
Early in points and then waiting for a ball to attack that time they get a miss and the seventh timeout called by Burroughs and Warnick has not stop the run I want to get a great job of keeping Newman honest there but he reached out swapped hands stuck his left hand out and got it.
Hey three one it's a talented young man right there turn from Burrows and out of the timeout 3-1 calm collected and Warnick with the step back swing SWAT and what had the potential to be classic is a runaway and we are at match point and the return sails deep from Burrows and.
The first two points were loud the rest of the match was all the two seeds so Newman and right are moving on up 11 3 11 3 is your final score there's a nice little convo between Riley Newman and Jeff Warnick afterwards yeah good to see that even with all the chirping even with all the back and.

Thank you a lot of us miss hit the ball I know I missed hit the ball a lot um oh God I guess I'm sort of unique in how I was introduced to the sport because I was.
Sort of watching from the sidelines for years as my brother was ascending the top of the sport pickleball was kind of funny and then it crept up on me in terms of what it was to me so I started playing in early 2016 in that time there were a couple professional tournaments so I didn't have any plans with it I just thought it was fun I played the US.
Open for the heck of it Ben and I are both competitive we like to win all the time and of course in the gold medal match there's more on the line so you want to win those then John's having a moment it was all John's Brothers ain't control from the start they had their foot on the gas pedal and did not let up if you're the Target that means.
You're in a good position when it's where other people want to be so I definitely don't underestimate or undervalue that I really it's about trying to trying to stay on top you know I mean people say you don't have upwards to go and that's that's never exactly true it's a constant fight still and that's really what it's more about is.
The the grinding the fight my number one reason and why I continue to play Pickleball is is the fact that I get to spend time on court with my little brother it's just really cool that we found a sport that we can compete in and play together let alone actually be at the top of this work so pickleball really did in many ways.
Come out of nowhere it's very sociable so when you go to play you might have a billionaire and gender and and just your average housewife on the same court and wanting to win wanting to play well and enjoying themselves out of nowhere might be the title right now but years from now it's going to be something very different.

Same time next week you got it cool let's go foreign welcome back everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger and we are at the takea Showcase we're on the PPA tour winding down the tour heading into the holidays with a lot to be thankful on the pickleball side and.
If you are in Newport today thankful for that beautiful weather thankful for the chance to play where the pros play about a thousand amateur players playing and uh you can see on that second Court Wyatt Stone and Brandon French about to either start or just finishing there you see Lucy kovalova's Head just at the.
Bottom of your screen warming up and I think we're going to have a backdraw match here for you but let's take a look at what we know from the men's side here first we just saw the Johns Brothers take out Taylor and Frazier and then shortly thereafter after after the failed nasty Nelson attempt by Jeff Warnick.
Matt Wright was in his in his Target but uh got out of the way and then after that it was all Newman and right so they will await the winner of devillier and McGuffin and Wilson and Kohler to close out our four semi-final bursts while we get that all sorted out out on the court we're gonna have a one game to 15 and we've got.
A really nice matchup here we've got Connor Garnett whose back is to you he is with the Yola paddle there and sort of the off-white with the logo on the back Kyle McKenzie who is a great teacher of the game has joined me in the booth is his partner so those two will be facing.
The Canadian Steve Deacon over there with the Winter Soldier so a Canadian and a winter soldier that seems like a match made in heaven at this time of year it does doesn't it I mean we saw uh Smith and Deacon uh pair up earlier and winning the first round pretty easily 11-0-11-2 in straight games but then losing to the team that we just.
Witnessed uh Warnick and Burrows uh in three very closely contested games that was eight eleven eleven eight eleven seven with Warnick and Burroughs coming out on top thus sending Deacon and Smith down here to the consolation draw so they'll work their way up and aim for a bronze medal right now that's all they can really hope for no real ticket to.
Championship Sunday but still a good bit of prize money online and a nice bronze medal would be nice indeed so these players will warm up we'll take another quick break and then we'll have one game to 15 right after this foreign.
foreign look at that forehand she's clearly a 3.0 guys come on I'm at least a 40.
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 foreign women's doubles day here at the PPA takea showcase presented by Best Day brewing and this is a one game to 15 we'll switch sides at eight Pat Smith.
Steve Deacon the seventh seed versus Conor Garnett who had a terrific battle in singles against Ben Johns on Thursday had two game points in games one and two and dropped a heartbreaker 12 10 12 10 and Kyle McKenzie all the Selkirk gear over there with the hat on backwards of course Pat Smith to his left.
Has the white hat on backwards so apparently wearing the hat backwards is the thing to do I believe the bill should be there like Connor Garnett's but there's a good look at Pat Smith well see it's funny because he's squinting because he's looking directly into the sun maybe turning that hat around could solve that issue but then.
Again you'd lose the style points exactly stop points can get you a long way again especially when you're Pat Smith I mean that shirt is rolled up and ready on the right arm so it'll be deacon and Pat Smith Connor Garnett Kyle McKenzie.
1-15 the ladies are underway so you will start to see them and then the two men's semi-finals that's what will be on your menu for the balance of this Saturday so lots of great pickleball to come there you see Connor Garnett he is always moving in between points so he'll be rocking and ready to go and ready to.
Show that he's got the doubles game to match the singles game if you haven't seen him play doubles he certainly does let's see what he can do in this battle with the seven seed Pat Smith the serve let's play Pickleball side out forehand drive into the top of the tape not to start but first point easy to.
Shake It Off Point these backdraw games can get so challenging because with one game to 15. even though there are more points to play feels like you don't have as much time to really scope out your opponents and see what they're all about yeah and what Connor Garnett's all about is humongous.
Ground strokes from the Baseline there's the big forehand there oh Pat Smith what a roll Cross Court and a clean winner on this ball this is nasty 2-0 players back to back but immediately redeeming it with that one and there it is again yeah and Conor Garnett set up Kyle.
McKenzie well with this drive there got to do more with that next ball Mackenzie zero two one no just wide I know Garnett tried to say yeah there just wasn't room I think I think he hit that with every ounce of curl that he could he could get it down yeah surprised to see him.
Attempted bald didn't look like it was going that wide second serve great to have Steve deakin back on court the British Columbia native has been battling a wrist injury and is on his way back wow had no intentions except tagging Steve.
Deacon look at the backswing on this Court okay Conor Garnett yeah that's leaving tomorrow Point good lead from Garnett and it is his drives that are three one problem to start the point we'll see if they get the ball to Mackenzie three one two.
Foreign ette doing a nice job of lofting that ball up but at the same time making sure it didn't bounce too deep in the kitchen Smith didn't have the option to volley that like he may have thought he did side out it's a good start again this is to 15 so we'll switch sides.
Smith and Deacon are staring into the sun right now Garnett likes to go up on one leg to finish there he did it with the backhand and then does it with the forehand there back to back one-legged finishes there you don't have to be a flamingo but us Fleming's love that you are looks cool another one that just isn't there for.
Garnett not wide enough it's not there got to be patient and Dink that back Cross Court two four two Deacon's usually very precise with that backhand cut drop Garnett smiling away two one it is the Canadian with the final answers Garnett is bringing the Heat four two two.
Slide out on that last point I think Garnett had the right idea sped it up right towards the right side of Pat Smith made it so difficult for him to get that twisted over to the forehand side in time but Pat Smith was able to win it out anyway and second tremendous defense from Garnett and Mackenzie.
the first one was good down the middle very powerful but very defendable because it popped up pretty high 242 just rehearsing me forehand volley he wished he had hit side out Barnett's Pace continues to be a problem for Smith and deacon yeah just nursing this two-point lead.
Right now but a chance to extend Garnett a Santa Clara Bronco tennis player side out Deacon had a tremendous tennis career of his own as did Pat Smith so uh with tennis McKenzie as well well that was fun yeah another good spot.
From Garnett like he initiated that attack in the right spot you see it there nice little two-handed backhand at the right hip of Pat Smith but I mean Smith has been ready for one he has indeed okay so we're there's stages of Pat Smith there's the German then the hit yourself on the head with your paddle.
You actually bite the paddle so keep an eye on that nice hands by Kyle McKenzie in the middle of that point but then the neck chord set up a room service Dandy right there and Deacon did not panic a lot of lower level players panic when that happens he just held the paddle there and finished.
And the ball pops off the net like that we just saw it in that point too it's so hard to quickly recalibrate which direction that ball is going to actually hit a successful shot from Mackenzie so a little run here for the seventh seed again you always want to get to those Milestones eight is the first one and.
Then we'll switch sides and Pat's Patsy saw a ball that was just sitting there and even though high five he did connect on the forehand drive and this is always an interesting decision to make as a team your opponent's on a run you get a free timeout if you will when you switch sides at eight but they choose to call.
It here at seven there's a good look at the electrum paddle of Pat Smith and you know these games to 15 you can't just throw away the first 11 points because there is no game two in game three right even though there are more points to play It's All One game so every single point has big consequences on the exact game.
You're playing you can't just chalk it up to oh game one will come back in game two if you want to survive in the back draw you've got to be on it from the word go we have seen a little bit of back and forth right now it is Smith and Deacon with a little bit of that edge maybe this extra timeout from Garnett and Mackenzie could help them get some.
Points back before that eight point Milestone seven four two certainly their hope we'll see if this strategy pays off foreign there from Garnett and Mackenzie 4-7 that is a great point from Pat Smith.
Fends off two vicious attacks from Connor Garnett and then finds this ATP and hits it one inch above the ground that's where you want to Target great job Pat Smith excuse me that's just a great fight from Pat Smith I mean from the start to finish deep.
Serve the pinned him in the corner he threw a deep return right back then ran all the way up to the kitchen line cross-court in the nick of time he did and Garnett's got to find the second ball after this backhand down the line speed UPS just catches the outside of the line there.
Foreign look at this point and yes it's in from Kyle McKenzie after all that with several attacks at that point we saw one down the line one or two down the middle at the end of it all it works out in their favor well placed by.
Mackenzie oh beautiful step around forehand and Mackenzie threads the needle down the middle two times in a row four seven can they get closer that's a ball that Pat Smith's trying to protect his partner on the switch but that's tough on the backhand five seven one I'd say it's official.
Though the timeout works second serve oftentimes it looks like it's the swing that's the problem with Kyle Mckenzie was able to assess his own problem it was his feet inside out too high from Garnett there so Smith and Deacon stuck at seven for a.
Minute here they'd love to get to eight up three get to that other side seven five one foreign legged two-handed backhand topspin dink that pushed Deacon back and forced the ball that was seven five two Smith's smiling that third didn't hurt him.
You upside out great communication from Mackenzie and Garnett you heard you several times in the middle of that point to make sure they had the middle cleaned up so they held him at seven again it's three holds now since the timeout because Deacon's been very patient with.
His stinks which is what he's known for chooses to speed one up tremendous hands from the Canadian right there is everything looked good as this is an absolute laser from McKenzie and the eye formation all they could do is smile I can serve tough there for Deacon as he worked his.
Way up tried to drop that one in the kitchen hard to soften those hands when you're already moving forward with all that momentum Garnett has Deacon in front of him for the first time and he goes after him so Smith and Deacon realize they've been on seven for a while tried to switch it up that did not work.
Now they're back and a piece of candy just sitting there ready to be slammed but one see their feet were on top of each other there and it is seven all and it could be Garnett and Mackenzie that switched with the lead still on the first server too.
I'll get on top of it um get on top of it he's right he was in good position 772 and another one off the tape this is quite the entertaining battle who can get this is the chance that Smith and Dee can get there and there is no disguise in Garnett's.
Game full backswing heat is coming Jonah heat is coming I mean they disguised a couple of shaking big quite well we saw a lot of those drive to that aggressive poach it's been working after all that it is a ball that Steve Deacon tried to hit let go and it's an inch out and that gets them to point.
Number eight so we'll take a break it won't be as long as it took for them to get to eight and we'll be right back foreign a lot of people come up to me on Tuesday night pickleball at the orchard and ask.
Me where's the bathroom now is that my job no but I am here to protect answer it's 55 steps once and Thrice because that's what we do 15 seconds players welcome back.
Everybody Dave Fleming Jonas willinger and Jonah we always wonder should you call timeout at seven that's so that's sort of showed us you should yeah we got a pretty clear answer there got a couple of points back sure they didn't get to eight first but they did their job only one point down if you are in front of Connor Garnett.
Expect the ball and expect it with some pace so fast here it hits the paddle of Pat Smith sent on to the roof of the concessions uh building there yeah and Conor Garnett trying to get that back seven eight one oh and a little uh John Isner tribute there as he brings the.
Ball between his legs before he serves that's a rough ball to make so low and he's well back off the kitchen and the highest part of the net other than that it's perfect foreign how did he get that one in Conor Garnett with the look at the left hand on this that is like a left-handed forehand.
That's the advantage to it backhand hitters have tremendous ball from Garnett it's a degree of difficulty on that shot on the full move is as high as it gets and then unfortunately his partner hits one off the center field wall but it happens tied at eight eight one.
Eight one point and Kyle McKenzie tried the Look Away trickery there that didn't work two-handed back backhand Just Whipped it right back at him foreign all right ends on a slight Miss hit.
Actually I think yeah was it the cleanest and he apologized even looking at the edge of his Yola paddle there but it was that one that they couldn't handle so uh perhaps that's where he should practice his overheads saw the good tennis form from going out there though twice now we saw Deacon speed up one.
Smith speed up one both of them into the top of the net so maybe shifting back to the patient game here waiting for garnetta McKenzie to start it off second serve D see if they return it to Mackenzie again sometimes when you see your opponent talking to themselves you want.
To make them hit another one but they do not if you leave your fourth off Garnett is coming for it that's Constance I mean his third wasn't really low enough I mean deacons could still attack it but Garnett took the space and delivered not this time though.
So two-thirds misses for Garnett and Mackenzie but they nine ten those in front nine ten one that time it might have been white again but Pat Smith's paddle was in the way so we'll never know yeah he might have gotten a Ricochet in the face but again he's the Winter Soldier.
He's fine huge swing from Garnett again pays dividends the ball back with the lead this is promising Garnett just Relentless slamming the ball repeatedly a deacon and then goes Cross Court for the ultimate winner.
You talked about this earlier he's been across from both Deacon and Smith on different occasions but his strategy the same and just as successful against both aggression with that two-handed backhand down the line down the middle he could do it all yeah so the Slate coming up folks we've got this.
Backdraw and uh we are excited to have DraftKings as a sponsor and here's a good look at Pat Smith 38 years old he's been playing pro since 2019. we call him the Winter Soldier because he's got that right sleeve rolled up one of the true gentlemen of our sport his line calls are better than anybody's.
And just has a lot of fun and it's so talented and in 2022 he's healthy last year he had tape all over his body trying to get comfortable his movement much better and his results follow this is a big battle here for Garnett and Mackenzie they are up too I gotta say one of the most impressive things about Pat Smith and that Pat Smith in that.
Winter Soldier look I have no idea how he keeps that sleeve rolled up so successfully I feel like it would just keep falling down he's got the muscle to keep it there so timeout called 11-9 garnetta McKenzie oh no and then uh this return from said Winter Soldier here so it is now.
too wide but that's Garnett's game uh even as you get closer to the Finish Line you can't get tight and play safe 12-19 interesting thing is Smith and Deacon deciding who they want to put in front of them they're not going to unwind the stack so they'll keep Deacon there.
And that time it's Smith who identifies Mackenzie so we'll see if that is what they choose to do here and when you serve you can choose easily which side you want to be on so they're going to go with Deacon in front of Garnett second serve on the forehand just misses.
9 12 too point they got one yep sometimes it's hard to reload that two-handed backhand there and Mackenzie couldn't quite get 10-12 back where he wanted 10-12. Garnett firing away I mean the degree of difficulty on some of these shots he's taking is unreal firing away again and.
Again even backed up stepped back forward towards the kitchen taking a look on his way up that's not easy to do beautiful play by Garnett and it's Mackenzie who sets himself up and finishes so Mackenzie says I've got plenty in my cell Kirk Powell beautiful job by him and they're two points from moving on.
takes us to a match point for Garnett and Mackenzie 14 10-1 fortunately the return flies deep and it is Conor Garnett and Kyle McKenzie moving on Connor Garnett was a name we knew coming into this tournament and he keeps showing us why he's somebody that is.
Going to be a force to be reckoned with they'll have the Johnson twins in their next match in the back draw and since we've got the World Cup coming around here's the pickleball version probably wasn't going to result in a goal there but definitely.
Was some frustration from Mr Deacon so really impressive great job Kyle McKenzie and Connor Garnett firing away so keep an eye on that duo in the backdraw it is semi-final time though when we come back who's gonna get to Sunday.
Comments everyone talks about without the moments no one sees early morning practice late night drills running it over and over crowd without the quiet everyone sees the glory the metal the podium every winning shot 's right here.
Paddle tech let's go again how do you get what you want Eric Weimar blind man wanted to climb Mount Everest my man crazy but he believed it was possible we're gonna do it and because he believed he became the first blind person ever to stand on top of the world Guaranteed Rate believes in your dreams that's why we treat everyone like we.
Treat our own family and work extra hard to get you the lowest low rate possible because if you believe you will the proxar pickleball paddle answers the angel question of how to get paddle speed and control with the same paddle and one grip and this is it pro XR gives you more spin greater control and quicker reloads on every shot in the.
Game because you always have that constant feel for that leverage and control and paddle speed that we're all looking for pro XR is the most revolutionary technology in pickleball match point it's all up to me nothing can get in my way and when they ask what are you gonna do next I'll say I'm going oh.
We're going to Margarita now you can go to Margaritaville too visit Margaritaville resorts.com foreign.
foreign the world will get back on its feet we'll help you stay on yours your secret it's the expert help I got input Solutions make an appointment at footsolutions.com.
Foreign tennis and pickleball Club in Newport Beach beautiful day here in sunny Southern California this is the PPA take care of showcase presented by Best Day brewing and it is time for the men's semi-finals and.
Three of the four top seeds made it through the top seed Ben Johnson Colin Johns the four seed Tyler loong and Colin Dawson will be our first you can see that the ladies are underway we've got a Lucy kovalova and Cali Smith crazy point that's Genie araquina who puts a ball away there in the front half of the court and.
This is the chance to play tomorrow this is this can be your last match of the day yeah this is it I mean already working our way to the semi-finals just power our way through this men's doubles bracket and yeah Ben Johns a chance to earn a second spot on Championship Sunday of course he will face off.
Against Tyson McGuffin in the men's singles side of things in one day's time but everyone else looking for just one appearance Callan Dawson Tyler Loom on the other side we did get a chance to see one of their matches earlier against Medi kazali and Ryan Gilbert which was actually quite a matchup that uh took all the way to extra pickleball in that.
First game 12-10 Tyler loong and Catelyn Dawson over top 11-5 in game two so now they're here against the Johns Brothers it's gonna be a tough one yeah they caught fire at the end so they're definitely going to want to keep that going and Tyler loong the Lefty from Utah's actually uh kind of a tech nerd as well.
Uh he loves him some cameras he loves computers so folks if you ever see Tyler at a tournament and that's your thing he would love to interact with you on on that side of things Colin Dawson you can see there we talked about that unique grip there's a good look at it right there and that paddle had crazy Pace on it I got there on Thursday.
Uh watching some of these singles players go at it and actually just listening friends but you can immediately tell where Callan Dawson is playing that thing has so much pop so much power it is audibly different than most of them it is and uh that's just coming out into the.
Marketplace now just in time for the holidays for your pickleball fan if that's their cup of tea they want Pace that's where it's at Megan design on the women's side is the other user of that and she has hit balls harder than anybody on planet Earth with that when she has a forehand ready it is punished so you see Ben Johns he's got.
The of course the Ben Jon signature paddle from Yola he switched over to that earlier this year and Mr loong in front of you uses that thinner Vulcan and he just snaps off those finishes if there's a ball up no one hits the ball down and harder for a.
Winner better than that gentlemen and it's going to be an interesting decision as to how loon and Dawson choose to play because when they play slower that is a good strategy against many but the Johns Brothers of the top teams are comfortable there right the Johns Brothers are not many they are the.
Number one seed for a reason they can play either style of pickleball they can slow down the pace and make you pay but they're also comfortable going with fast Lightning Fast hands battles we saw that from Ben Johns earlier with just several powerful Drive battles back and forth same thing goes for Colin John's one of his favorite shots also one of the.
Coolest shots to watch is that calm and Casual two-handed reset shot where he just softens those hands up resets any drive hit at him right into the kitchen on the other side indeed you will see that for sure here and you even saw behind the back volley to finish the warm-up there from Ben John so there's a good look at older brother Colin Johns.
Semi-finals let's play Pickleball doctor first point what a first point of the semi-finals today more police what a way to start we saw everything there again really good lot from Callen Dawson but Ben johns with a nicely placed lob retrieval we set that one back into the kitchen side out good deep volley so.
One is all on the first service unlike the last match this is a match where you will know the home of all four players the Lefty loon is not leaving his side and Ben Johns is going to be playing in front of him all day long foreign nice NAB there from Dawson saw that one floating across the middle saw an.
Opportunity to poach that one put it right into the body of Ben Jones and when lung's forehand is going 2-1-1 athlete next to him and Dawson who can bake the okay so Colin goes with the lob again and 3-1 sky hook.
Comes up just short from Colin Dawson or Colin Johnson thank you that's beautifully played by college talking about the lob Ben and Collins should be pretty well versed dealing with this because well one of their Rivals Matt Wright does it all the time the sky hook stays in.
What a finish from Tyler long after the flinger saved by Colin Johns on the right side of his body that was a ridiculous get but yeah one of those where you just kind of scoop it it almost hits the paddle two or three times as it gets flung into the air one motion baby that's the rule I make.
A lot of use of that rule myself hey know the rule book so I really like the pace that Dawson and Lou are playing there four one two patient when they need to be the lob is getting them off the kitchen line and when loon's got a chance to fire he is foreign opportunity.
To direct that one towards Callan Dawson and it didn't not work five one one second serve fifth shot Drive comes up short in fact my mistake thank you strong start for lung and Dawson to take advantage of the John's tendency to start off a little slow.
That time it's Colin John's able to get up and if you'll notice his foot positioning he's just off the line he's not hasted to it that gives him just that little extra room to get there on the lob well done Colin point must return and the lead is down to two.
Three three five one Point Callan Dawson is doing a great job of protecting that backhand corner for the most part you're seeing him take out a lot of those balls out of the air making sure it doesn't stick him in that corner and he gets pushed back you heard the loud yell from Tyler long.
That this is going out but Dawson couldn't get his paddle out of the way and we are knotted at five and it is loong and Dawson forced to call timeout so good Rally from the top seed we'll see if they can keep it going right after this.
things the most important part about Tuesday night pickleball at the orchard is the sound check we got 36 microphones in here and I'm checking the crowd audience microphone the ambient microphone making sure we.
Get all the audio from these matches check check one two check check hello hello hello somebody get me down welcome back everybody semi-final number one when done for the day play tomorrow if you're Ben Johns you get to play singles and doubles with your brother.
If you're calling you get to play doubles with your brother as well of course but you don't get to play singles you can cheer them on of course and then this is one that bloom and Dawson would love to have to be able to play tomorrow Colin Dawson from Encinitas great facility that the Dawson family runs the Bobby Riggs Racket and paddle.
Club foreign y Point goes the way of the Johns and this is their their special magic they will happily play fast and they will happily grind themselves out of a four-point hole and they've done it right here foreign.
Thank you and didn't that change quickly and the impetus for the change was the Callan Dawson law love the relatively new strategy that Ben Johnson collegeons used to retrieve those lobs rather than both dropping back to the Baseline Colin stays up while Ben drops back.
So good finish from Colin Dawson there so that's six five first slow grindy point where the lob was perfect seems pivotal see if they can get some momentum from it second serve cannot on the first try.
Five six two side out so a couple of mistakes from Colin Dawson and unable to Dent the scoreboard and tie it up six five one thank you Point big drive there from Ben Johns even Tyler loon couldn't quite adjust in time with all that pace seven five one beautiful finish right on the line.
Loom thought the point was over in the middle of it because he didn't know the counten was still behind him we've seen that a couple times Wes Burrows tagged his partner Jeff Warnick earlier in a similar type of point and look what we have here they change up the sides the ball is going to be in the middle a.
Lot from the Johns boys because they know there's nothing scary in there and right execute that perfectly yeah instead of having both forehands in the middle when you switch a lefty and a writing on the opposite sides like this now both backhands are in the middle like you said the Johns can easily rely on not having to worry about too much.
Speed coming out of the middle of the Court all right that's a huge finish from Tyler in there so the get one stop to keep them at nine the key to take advantage of that two backhands in the middle is get the kitchen and make the ball bounce there.
Let's see if they can point and get a lean in Miss from Tyler loon who slaps that Vulcan paddle and we have a game thank you for Colin kept throwing it in the middle until he got one that he felt good about and he blows up Tyler loong in front of him.
So it was 5-1 lung and Dawson 10. in a row for the Johns Brothers and here's what middle dinking can do for you as we watch this point play out and call them both just dropping it into the middle forcing Dawson to stab at that with his backhand eventually hit right up into loong and he does not take.
Advantage so these two are laughing it up they're halfway to Sunday what if you could have Shades like these for a fraction of Big Brand prices with Shady Rays you can we're an independent company so we do things differently we offer high quality.
Polarized shades for a reasonable price and we personally replace any pair that gets lost or broken and so far we've racked up over a hundred thousand five star reviews I founded Shady Rays so that we could have sunglasses that stand up to whatever life throws at us order now and get 50 off two pairs at Shady rays.com.
Foreign times to good friends to the glasses that spark conversation to the ideas that then pour out hours came from a night like that and somehow survived the morning after to make our own tequila wasn't meant to leave our house but since we made this for friends we thought it wouldn't hurt to make a few.
More grab a glass Amigo our tequila your tequila our casa is your Castle thank you we are back it is game two of our first semi-final of the day and Tyler loon and Colin Dawson.
Try to switch they put Tyler loong on the right side of the court that did not stop the it's getting two points that was coming out zero two and start in their traditional spots see if they can get something going right away Callan Dawson will pull out the lob that did work on several occasions in that first game already.
They get a point from it so one zero two ten in a row is over side out good leave there from the Johns Brothers that's a skill you should practice Ballers at home foreign John's reset clinic in the middle.
It is Colin Johnson puts that away yeah he was having none of that leaves it up as he runs around the backhand a little bit and foreign foreign oh my that catches the line on the Top Spin lob and it is.
Court Ben Jones with a topspin lob volley over the lob doctor on the line and then he gets to finish it yeah executed by Ben Johns point I do like that choice from loon obviously it wasn't in the court but clearly they need to change it up right they're playing this long slow Marathon.
Game with the Johns right now and it's not working at some point you got to say you know what let's just try what we can second serve yeah we've certainly seen pace and I'm talking Relentless Pace from right foreign and that kind of aggression it may not be Tyler loong and Callan Dawson's style.
But 5-1 and again two he already lost the first it's time to just pull out all the stops Colin screamed no but Ben's like man I gotta take a hack at this one that was I got the green light on 3-0 there six one two Beautiful Finish I am there but 16 of 17 points to the Johns Brothers since they.
Were down 5-1-6-1 they may start slow but they certainly know how to bounce back two six one point three six one sidearm serve at the college baseball player second serve that's the beauty of the.
Top Spin roll volley it is tough to short hop that with all the streets too foreign but only barely good eye from Colin Johns you gotta make that decision because the overhead's gone once you let it go foreign just reset reset we got one we'll bring.
It and all of these dinks are so fast nothing to take out of the air only time you can is when Ben is whipping that ball at you at almost 100 miles an hour it feels like and it's so tough to react and get an effective shot in response to that you've got to make a better return foreign.
Is finally able to get something down eight three two that's a really nice value from Tyler Lane got a Little Help from the net the crowd wants more of this they're trying to urge on foreign going back to Ben's backhand again first few shots Ben handled nicely but then he.
Predicted more of a middle dink or maybe towards color inside of the court and they went backhand again it got him into trouble second serve gotta follow that up with a made third though when you're down 482 side out.
So a nice Point as you pointed out Jonah and then two missed thirds it's hard to climb at the mountain especially the Johns Mountain it's got to be heartbreaking foreign Dawson ended up they're happy to keep pushing you pushing you pushing you and then if it's up you got to retreat.
Excuse me two points from Sunday you out there out here oh my another lot volley from Ben Johnson you heard Tyler say you you but he'd already taken a step there so it was the visual that threw him off this is Sunday Championship Point another third shot live but the seconds gets married.
I like that Tyler loong rather than saying that's yours he said out of the air out of the air out of the air trying to tell Callan Dawson to take that ball before it bounced he knew it was going to land in second chance to move on to Sunday and it is a wicked little ATP from Ben Johns that caps off a methodical precise.
Convincing victory for the Johns Brothers the top seed will play on Sunday Colin John's happy to wave at everybody and we'll take one last look at the point that got them there and you always love to have a walk off something fun and Ben's about to get an ATP folks fun way to.
And the point here is he steps out left puts it dead center in Tyler lose half the court no question that that was it so lots of smiles kind of a failed high five there at the end they can get that sorted out they're done for the day the Johns Brothers Moving On we will have the second semi-final next this will be another Beauty.
Cam Wilson and Kohler take out the two seed we'll find out right after this foreign.
not yet buddy podiums are reserved for winners no one ever said getting there would be easy so we work we drill we train and while we do whatever it takes to gain even the slightest Edge we found our biggest.
Electrum has the most grit to spin and Touch without sacrificing any power electrum earn your Edge foreign Johns guys but congratulations you played this team at many times you had a.
Comfortable win against them here today but they are dangerous and you can never count them out how did you come into this match with the right mentality yeah they both bring interesting uh things to the table they they don't quite play like anybody else so you have to be aware of those things and we just try to be aggressive throughout the whole day.
Well next up on Sunday you're going to see Matt Wright and Riley Newman or AJ Kohler and Thomas Wilson what are some of the differences in strategy that you'll have to come into either of those matchups uh yeah I think most the the main things stay the same you know we do it we do well uh and we mainly got to focus on that uh strategically with them.
I think um definitely the the where the returns go and where the drops go usually varies a little bit and um and with either team I think you need to be very careful because they're both very aggressive um so you really just want to pick your spots when you attack and definitely be.
Ready for the ball to come at you at from any position really well guys I know you're coming off uh three weeks of tournaments uh you played Nationals last week we had the Dallas open before that that's a tough schedule but we get a big break coming up over Thanksgiving what are you looking forward to over that time definitely Thanksgiving turkey and.
Mashed potatoes what about family well you too I guess I guess I guess we'll see more of you oh man anything from you uh this darling right here and some cherry pie all right short and sweet guys congratulations we'll see you compete on Sunday we're gonna have the ladies coming up later as well as.
