Rogers, Dalhausser win again in Hermosa Beach

Matt Prosser and John Mayer (seriously) had a great run to get to the finals at Hermosa Beach, but they ran into the best team in the world. Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser won in straight sets, demolishing the cinderella bid 21-14 and 21-11. The best team in the world won their fourth AVP Tour title on the year and they are undefeated domestically in 2010.

The two also have 5 FIVB titles on the year, and are easily the best team in the world. Rogers and Dalhausser can each do it all: serve (although Dalhausser seems much better since he’s probably the best in the world), block, dig and set. Dalhausser had an incredible 11 blocks in the championship match and at times it seemed that Rogers could have just laid out a sleeping bag and watched.

The title puts the duo into 3rd place all time with their 54th career title.

Rogers, Dalhausser Win 5th Gold of the Year

2008 gold medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser won their 5th title of the beach volleyball season when they won in Gstaad, Switzerland. Their 5th title was their career high for a single season. They avenged last week’s loss in Norway to David Klemperer and Eric Koreng 21-18 and 21-13 to win the title.

Rogers and Dalhausser won the tournament without going undefeated for the 5th time this year. The team, who has competed in every tournament of the season, fought tired legs to win and now have been in 10 straight semifinals. They are the only team in the world who has made the semis in every tournament this season, and they have failed to win a medal only once.

They will next compete in Marseille, France from July 19-25, where they will try to continue their semifinal streak.
