The undefeated duo overcame a spirited challenge from Meghan Dizon and Etta Wright, winning a thrilling three-set battle 11-3, 12-10, 12-10.
Waters and Parenteau started strong, dominating the first set with their signature blend of power and precision. However, Dizon and Wright refused to go down without a fight. They stormed back in the second set, forcing a nail-biting finish before the top seeds edged them out 12-10.
The third set was a masterclass in resilience and composure. Dizon and Wright continued their aggressive play, pushing Waters and Parenteau to their limits. But the experience and chemistry of the top-ranked duo shone through. They stayed focused, executed their game plan, and ultimately pulled away with another close 12-10 victory.
"Meghan and Etta were playing so well," acknowledged Waters after the match. "They really pushed us to our limit."
Dizon and Wright's comeback attempt fell short, but their performance highlighted the rising competitiveness in women's pickleball. However, Waters and Parenteau weren't about to let their gold medal slip away. As Parenteau explained, "We just needed to move the ball around, play our game, and be aggressive first... On the bench, we were reminded that you can win just by being defensive, so just go for it."
Their determination and teamwork paid off, solidifying their position as the undisputed queens of pickleball doubles. This victory marked Waters' 23rd career Triple Crown on the PPA Tour, a testament to her incredible talent and dedication.
"Catherine is just an amazing person off the court," Waters said of her partner. "If I could pick anybody, I would pick Catherine. Even if she wasn't No. 2 in the world, I'd still pick her and play with her. I just love her so much."
The mutual respect and admiration between Waters and Parenteau are evident both on and off the court. Their synergy and unwavering support for each other make them a formidable force on the pickleball scene. With this latest triumph, they have set the bar even higher and established themselves as a true dynasty in women's doubles.
