Week 5 Battle Court Update

Week 5 Battle Court Update

Week 5 saw another round of great match-ups with 10 of the 15 matches going to a third and decisive set.

The Cyclones earned 9.5 points including a clean sweep of the Chargers on Tuesday. You may recall that the Cyclones were on the other end of the broom in Week 3 at the hands of the Warriors (on a Tuesday as well).

For the Cyclones; Joseph and Jeden each had two 3 set wins in singles. Joseph has been putting in extra practice time and has been working with teammates Manny and Manu to continue developing his skills. The extra work is showing as Joseph’s play has been more focused with better and more powerful shots. Joseph earned wins against Vuelo and Roque. In Jeden’s singles matches, he started with 6-5 first set wins over Ben and CRB only to lose the second sets of each match by scores of 0-6 and 2-6, then coming back to win the third sets 6-4. The third set against Ben was back and forth with no one having more than a 1 point lead until Jeden finished off the final 2 points and won 6-4. Carballo & Manu took an impressive 3 set doubles win over the undefeated team of Douglas & Benny (6-2, 3-6, 6-2) that showed more consistent and controlled play from Carballo.

The Renegades picked up singles wins from Goixerri (4-1) and Kubala (2-0). Goixerri & Aratz handed Ikeda & Manny a straight set doubles loss (6-0, 6-5) in a match that showed very powerful serving by Goixerri and amazing wall climbing by Aratz. Goixerri & Aratz along with Bueno & Nicolas of the Warriors are each 4-0 to lead Battle Court doubles. Later in doubles play, Goixerri & Kubala lost to Inaki & Nicolas in a 3 set match (6-2, 3-6, 5-6) that may have been the hardest fought match to date in Battle Court. Kubala, who joined the Magic City program in 2019, continues to improve his skill level and played tremendous with the three more experienced players.

For the Warriors, Julen won a 3 set singles match against Robin (1-6, 6-1, 6-2) that was hard fought. Robin (aka “shots king”) made some spectacular shots from the 10 line by crushing a backhand two wall and a very well placed drop shot. In addition to Nicolas’ great play in the earlier Pelota games and great doubles play, he handed Aratz his third straight singles loss (6-5, 6-3). Bueno & Nicolas won in a 3 set thriller over Vuelo (filling in for the injured Williams) & Aratz (6-5, 5-6, 6-4). In the first set, Bueno & Nicolas were up 5-0 and held on to win 6-5.

Midway through the 9 week season, only 4 points separate first from third place. The Warriors are in first place with 25 points, the Cyclones in second with 23 points, the Renegades in third with 21 points and the Chargers in fourth with 15 points.

Week 4 Battle Court H2H Update

The Warriors remain in first place with 20 points with the Renegades in second place with 17.5 points. The Chargers are in third place with 15 points while the Cyclones are in fourth with 13.5 points. The Chargers and Warriors are 1 ‘game-day’ of play ahead of the Cyclones and Renegades.

Inaki of the Warriors debuted in number one singles this week with matches against Douglas and Goixerri. Inaki fell to Goixerri in 2 sets (3-6, 3-6) and then faced Douglas on Tuesday for a rematch of the second annual USNJAC finals that was played at Magic City in 2021. Great play was on display but Douglas jumped out with leads of 3-0 in set 1 and 4-0 in set 2 which proved too much for Inaki to overcome. Douglas won in straight sets 6-2, 6-2.

The Cyclones went 4-1 to earn 5 points in week 4 after an 0-5 week 3. Ikeda and Jeden picked up singles wins while Ikeda & Manny as well as Joseph & Manu earned doubles wins. Jeden entered Monday’s Battle Court H2H matches with a Sunday/Monday 7 of 8 In-The-Money record from the earlier pelota games (aka pari-mutuel games) which are a great warm-up for H2H matches. Jeden earned a victory over CRB of the Chargers in 3 sets with a pivotal moment coming on a double fault by CRB late in the match.

Benny, Douglas, Jairo and Roque each earned singles wins for the Chargers.

In doubles, Goixerri & Kubala of the Renegades beat Inaki & Julen of the Warriors in straight sets (6-2, 6-2) with some great plays and very focused play by Kubala. The team of Jairo & Benny of the Chargers lost 2 three set matches against Ikeda & Manny of the Cyclones (5-6, 6-2, 4-6) and Inaki & Nicolas of the Warriors (6-3, 1-6, 1-6).

In singles, Jairo of the Chargers and Nicolas of the Warriors went 3 sets with Nicolas winning the first set 6-5. Jairo won the match by winning the second and third sets (6-2, 6-2). Jairo seemed to have shifted gears by taking more shots in the last two sets and even busted out a beautiful left side costado two-wall shot.

Week Three Battle Court – Another Great Week of Action-Packed Play

Week Three Battle Court – Another Great Week of Action-Packed Play

Week 3 of Battle Court did not disappoint. Just when you thought it could not get any better, it did.

Diaz went 2-0 with wins against Roque on Sunday and Joseph on Tuesday. Both matches went 3 sets with 28 points each. In the third set against Joseph, tied at 1 apiece, Diaz was called for juggling, but regained his focus and went on to win. Diaz has a Battle Court leading singles record of 4-0. The win over Joseph was the beginning of the season’s first clean sweep as the Wall Warriors went 5-0 against the Cesta Cyclones. Both Diaz and Joseph have improved their skills from last season.

Bueno contributed to the Wall Warriors success with 2 singles wins as well with straight set wins against Correa and Ikeda. Bueno entered Battle Court with very good play carrying over from the pari-mutuel games. Bueno is 2-2 in the season standings.

Over all, the Wall Warriors went 8-2 for the week earning 9.5 points.

Robin of the Rebote Renegades had a straight set victory (6-3, 6-3) against Benny on Monday for his first win of the season. The ‘shots king’ had an amazing soft forehand from the 11 line in the opening set that set the tone.

Jairo (6-2, 6-4 vs Aratz) and CRB (6-5, 6-1 vs Bradley) of the Chula Chargers also got their first singles wins of the season.

Now for some doubles action. Douglas and Benny of the Chula Chargers beat Goixerri and Kubala of the Rebote Renegades (6-2, 6-4) that saw some very powerful serves. An exciting part about Battle Court is the server is afforded 2 serves. With that, we have seen some very powerful first serve attempts adding to the fast-paced action.

If this has not been exciting enough, it gets better. The opening point in Tuesday’s first doubles match featuring Carballo & Manu vs Inaki & Nicolas lasted 4 and a half minutes. Inaki & Nicolas won in 3 sets (6-1, 2-6, 6-5). The 6-1 score of the first set was not indicative of the quality of play. Carballo, who started in Magic City’s inaugural season of 2018 played focused and under control with his partner Manu (former Dania player) against former Dania opponents of Inaki & Nicolas.

With all of this action, the Wall Warriors moved from 3rd to 1st place with 15 points. The Rebote Renegades are in 2nd place with 13.5 points with the Chula Chargers in 3rd with 11. The Cesta Cyclones are in 4th place with 8.5 points.
