7pm EST Jha- Cifuentes    Kanak lost to him once before. Horacio also won that big Joola prize money tourney.
Let's go Kanak- 2 great players. One super prize.

The fact that he didn't do it on his first try probably made it clearer how hard it is and sweeter once he got it.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

Great job winning despite fighting jet lag and probably not having a coach at the tournament.

Mark Hazinski was coaching him, at least in the final. You could see him and his reaction to Kanak winning at https://www.instagram.com/reel/C7IaCsdrJFy/?igsh=MzJrd2Jrc2c2c3po
Mark also coached the USA men’s team at the recent Worlds in Busan.

Tim Wang was also there, and coached Nikhil in his matches.

Also interesting to me was Zeng qualifying, which must be one of the oldest ever in any sport to qualify for the first time. She also prevented Lucia Cordero for being Guatemala’s first ever table tennis player to qualify.

Andy Pereira (who beat Nikhil in the semis), emphatically jumped on the table after he qualified.
Hwan Bae (who I believe trains at 888) did something similar after he qualified in Australia’s Olympic trials, also this past weekend.

Taking the last women’s spot was Arantxia Cossio of Mexico. She did a similar celebration as fellow Mexican Marcos Madrid.

It would be a tough pill to swallow if he fails to make to Paris. Had he not been suspended that long, he would have had high enough ittf ranking to go (I suppose) and USA Mens might not even be in this situation of needing to win in Peru to qualify singles, is that correct to say?

Yes, that is correct to say.  They might even have gotten a Men's spot, Ed Ly is good but he is not beyond Kanak's range.

He can beat Marcelo.  But the draw is tough, and Cifuentes is not chopped liver either.
isn't Kanak better than LY?

Ed LY won an event where all those guys played - he is not chopped liver.


Head to head against players is not transitive, but Kanak lost to Benedek Olah yesterday, but Olah lost to Ly 3 straight today.

Kanak actually had at least 7 match points against Olah, but didn't close it out. Some of it was luck, but no excuse for losing the match...even though Olah hit some out of the world low percentage backhands.

Watch Olah more if you really think those are out of the world low percentage backhands.  Those are just regular trademarked shots for him, it is Kanak's job to scout and handle his opponent.
