Jha Builds Momentum for National Title Defense

(By Matt Hetherington)

Kanak Jha will be the player to watch this coming week at the 2017 SuperMicro US National Table Tennis Championships in Las Vegas. Jha will be the top seed coming into the tournament, aiming to defend his title from 2016 where he staged an incredible comeback to overcome 2015 National Champion Yijun Feng in the final at the Brooklyn Bowl.

Training and competing overseas in Sweden, Jha has started to see the results of his hard work.
