EPIC Comeback Battle Mixed Doubles Pickleball at the US Open – Senior Pro pickleball strategy

If you want to improve as a player, whether mixed doubles or otherwise (but definitely mixed doubles – and otherwise too), you will be glad you watched this match.

Even if you just want to sit back and enjoy a fun tough pickleball match, you will enjoy this match. Guaranteed.

This Senior Pro Mixed Doubles match has it all: stacking, shake n bake, dink rallies, defense, and specialized mixed doubles strategies (pinching the middle – stretching the pincher). You name it, this match has it.

Plus, it has some really good back and forth, 1 team pulling away, a strong comeback, use of timeouts, etc.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
