Recap from Day 4 of PPA Tour’s Orange County Cup 2024

Recap from Day 4 of PPA Tour: As the Select Medical Orange County Cup presented by Fitvine wine, continued at Life Time Fitness in lovely San Clemente, Day Four brought heightened excitement and thrilling matches that captivated the crowd.

Highlights of the Day Four:

Intense Quarterfinal Battles: Friday’s action was marked by nail-biting matches across the board. Out of the 20 matches played, an impressive nine matches stretched to three games. Two matches ended dramatically with 13-11 scores in the third game, showcasing the competitiveness and drama at its peak.

Hayden Patriquin’s Stellar Performance: Hayden Patriquin emerged as a standout performer, making waves with notable victories. Partnering with Vivian Glozman, they clinched a mixed quarterfinal win against Lea Jansen and Riley Newman. As the #16 seed, Patriquin continued his momentum by teaming up with Pablo Tellez to achieve a significant upset over Ben and Collin Johns. Their 13-11 victory in the third game, after saving eight match points, underscored Patriquin’s rising potential in the sport.

Battle of the Lefties: Jack Munro asserted his claim as one of the top left-handed players, teaming up with Julian Arnold to defeat seasoned players Matt Wright and Federico Staksrud. The duo, seeded 12th, is among the lower-seeded pairs still in contention. Munro and Arnold face another left-handed challenge on Saturday against Tellez and Patriquin, promising an intriguing matchup.

Dominance of Anna Leigh Waters: Anna Leigh Waters continued her dominant run, displaying formidable skills that left opponents struggling. In singles, her opponent Kaitlyn Christian managed to win merely three points in total. Waters’ sheer dominance raises the question not of whether she wins, but rather if her opponents can even reach five points in a game against her.

Ben Johns’ Tenacity: Ben Johns showcased his resilience yet again, particularly highlighted in his singles match against Quang Duong. Facing deficits of 8-2 and 8-6 in games one and two respectively, Johns turned the tables decisively to win both games 11-8 and 11-9. His ability to dominate after opponents reach 8 points was exemplified by a staggering 14-1 scoreline once Duong hit 8 points.
