With competitive table tennis back in Germany a few weeks before sanctioned events can be played in the US, we thought our viewers might enjoy watching the American Champion in competition. Kanak Jha had respectable results in his first tournament since the layoff. The Dusseldorf Masters is a three tournament series. Jha was not present for
the first tournament which was won by Timo Boll. In that tournament, Dan Qiu upset Dimitrij Ovtcharov early, and Steffen Mengel made it all the way to the Final. Jha played both Qiu and Mengel in the second tournament of the series. All three matches that Kanak Jha played are shown below.
