Megha's rating is 1691.  What you saw in the rally against Eric is the way she plays.  She has recent wins against 1700 and 1800 rated players.  She plays in the Sacramento CA area and has league wins against 1900 players.  At the Nationals she beat a 1752 player and didn't lose to any lower rated players.


Megha plays in Sitta nd the Sac/Bay Area. She performs well for her level in tourneys. She is also AKUL's mom. AKUL is a rising middle school player.

Megha is actually mobile, she uses one step footwork and gets to a lot of balls with that. She simply gets the bat on the ball and gets it back on.

A LOT of macho-Man attackers attack her to the side, she gets it back kinda lazy easy, Macho-man goes for power hit#2 and suddenly not in position to make a quality attack and lose the point.

There are more than one Macho-Man dude in her level (usually table 3 in Round Robin) in Sitta who are furious they lose to her.

She doesn't look like she does much, but getting the ball back on the table counts for a lot. Many players do not adjust to the way she impacts the ball and try to make shots either out of position, not knowing the spin, not knowing where the ball is going, or all the above.

Not a great recipe for attacking consistency.

If you want to beat her, you have to be able to setup and finish, either with power and placement, or extreme heavy spin. You have to use judgment, or you make way too many errors.

Your point at 0:20 beats anything I did there by a mile. Nice to meet you even though it was very brief.
I couldn't find my backhand loop last tournament so I went to the lost and found.

Heavy - Same and glad it wasn't meeting within a RR. I got beat up on enough as is.

All Re: Megha - Most of the match really isn't that interesting, lots of errors on both sides so I can't do that and have us looking bad. It was apparent that she is pretty solid defensively when you try to attack too hard into her so I totally see how those mid-level macho man guys would completely kill themselves that way. I won by either glacial speed bunny loops and/or just low/no-spin dinking the ball back at her (not too high or she has some fast SP shove/hits available, she isn't just a pushblocker or something). Super nice lady too.

Feels like I played a lot of LP players and surprisingly the nastiest balls were coming from the kid at 5:23, a 1900ish player with D.Tecs OX. Quick off the bounce, low and shoved so fast at me left/right and then sometimes pulled short. The quality and timing of those LP balls were really nasty. First time I can remember giving up and actively trying to avoid someones LP side in a really long time.

The best actual LP player was Shahnazari, and I was surprised because I thought I read he was some former Super Block type nasty LP guy but he had Hellfire OX and it was pretty ordinary to play against really. He just straight up skill outclassed me and you can tell he has a master's wide variety of strokes, fantastic placement, twiddling and nasty attacks on both wings, etc., just super solid all around.

You might be right about the full match not worth watching, but you might be underestimating it, too.  Her style is going to naturally induce more errors in place. At the same time, I've always found real matches more interesting than highlight films precisely because they're real.  I suggested showing her match because I thought it would have more character than the other matches, even thought perhaps most of the other opponents from your video are actually stronger players.  Anyway, that's my thinking.

Van,

Scout away... by the time you run into her on the table, her game will have evolved. I think she has gone up 3+ levels the last 1.5 years.

Best thing about these videos is scouting. Worst thing is I never get to travel to play tournaments...But I am just saying what others are thinking. 

BTW I think I will try to play to your FH based on your forum name choice alone...IF we ever meet. Yes that is a big "if"
