APP Masters Boca Raton: Thu Jan 20 - Sun Jan 23, 2022
Update as of Sun Jan 23 at 10:30am ET: I just found the schedule for today. It was posted about an hour ago on on USA Pickleball's Facebook page. I kept refreshing APP's Facebook page because, you know, it's the APP Masters. But without my second cup of coffee, I forgot that this is one of the APP tourneys in conjunction with USA Pickleball, so I should have been checking USAP's page. <facepalm> Anyways... Here's the official schedule for today:
The order of today's matches has not been posted anywhere online that I can find as of yet, but based on last weekend at APP Mesa Open, I'm presuming this is what we'll see today on Championship Sunday at APP Masters:
- Women's Singles Bronze - Jorja Johnson vs. Yu-chieh Hsieh.
- Men's Singles Bronze - Zane Navratil vs. Pablo Tellez.
- Women's Singles Gold - Andrea Koop vs. the winner of Bronze.
- Men's Singles Gold - Jw Johnson vs. the winner of Bronze.
- Women's Doubles Bronze - Michelle Esquivel & Sarah Ansboury vs. Jade & Jackie Kawamoto.
- Men's Doubles Bronze - Eden Lica & Andrei Daescu vs. Dylan Frazier & Rob Cassidy.
- Women's Doubles Gold - Simone Jardim & Andrea Koop vs. the winner of Bronze.
- Men's Doubles Gold - Adam Stone & Dekel Bar vs. the winner of Bronze.
- Mixed Doubles Bronze - Lee Whitwell & Jw Johnson vs. Jade Kawamoto & Dylan Frazier.
- Mixed Doubles Gold - Vivienne David & Dekel Bar vs. the winner of Bronze.

HOW TO WATCH: The livestream will be starting at, I believe, 10am ET / 7am PT, on USA Pickleball's YouTube Channel, and then likely cutting over to EPSN+ only at about 3pm ET / 12pm PT.

TIDBITS OF INTEREST (written before the tourney began):
