Mircea Morariu finished second in senior pro doubles at the 2021 U.S. Open, but he says he still has a lot of room for improvement.  He talks in depth about what else he is working on and what it takes to progress beyond the early rounds of a tournament to the semis, finals, and winning gold.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why Mircea stopped playing squash and how his background in the sport influences his Pickleball game
  • Which professional player he was on the court with in only his first week of playing Pickleball
  • The surprising impact squash had on Mircea’s Pickleball game
  • What it takes to get to the semi finals, finals, and winning gold in tournaments
  • How much more Mircea has to work on even though he finished second in the men’s senior pro division at the 2021 U.S. Open Champion
