Can Kanak Jha beat Hugo Calderano ?

That would be an anomaly. Could maybe happen on a peak Khanak day that also happens to be an off-form day for Hugo.

I can't see Brian Afanador upsetting Calderano, that would be crazy. I'd probably predict Calderano 4-0 for that quarterfinal match, 4-1 at best.

Jha comes from 3-1 down to defeat Miño in 7 games. Unfortunately I was called away at 3-1 so have no idea how Jha turned it around. Up to that point Miño was comprehensively outplaying him.

Jha started to hit the serve consistently, putting Miño under a lot of pressure on his own serve. Also, Miño slipped a couple of times, I think he became a bit tentative on movement.

That's what someone probably said too when Miu Hirano was projected to win the Asian Games.

I'm hoping for an all Brazilian final in the men's singles, but it might there be a good clash between Gustavo Tsuboi and Kanak Jha.
A tough game for Aguirre against Hugo.

In the women's side, Takahashi will probably have a hard time. I guess the finals will be Adriana Diaz x Zhang Mo.


I still hope Takahashi wins though!

What the hell is going on with Calderano. He is struggling with someone he should beat easily and has beaten 4-0 at last year's Pan Am Cup. Very strange. That Doesn't look like someone who is in the top 10.

Too close for comfort. 4-2 Calderano against Marcelo Aguirre. A problem against lefties maybe? Hugo's backhand just wasn't working out today :(

I thought for sure Hugo will crush this event but honestly i'm not even sure he'll beat Kanak in the final if he keeps playing like this.

I think it is the table surface, a slick type. Have you ever played on this type of table, definitely affects your game if your not used to it.
