Manika Batra vs Chen Meng highlights WC

Her style is based mainly on "disruption" - forcing errors on the part of her opponent by the use of long pips and constant twiddling. But it doesn't work on the likes of Chen Meng - in fact, in this game I see Batra making a lot more errors than her opponent does - mainly hitting the ball long or into the net, often on serve return. She does have enough power to mount the occasional attack but an attack by her opponent into the pips usually results in a weak or missed return. Because she twiddles, theoretically she should be able to attack with the inverted on both sides and should have a bigger selection of shots than someone who doesn't twiddle. The downside would be that it's also possible to get confused, or caught out with the wrong rubber and being forced into giving a weak return.

I agree, but she uses this same game against other players to great affect, so i'm sure it depends a lot on how the opponent can adjust to this style.

I have seen a lot of matches from her ... and it depends on 2 things ......
The opponent, and her own mindset.
what I noticed ......
Some keep hitting on her BH and then she starts the twiddle and the opponent then switches to FH it often goes wrong.
Well .. atleast more wrong then good. If it happens a few times then it switches in her head ..... and then it's gone match.
She'll walk with hung shoulders and there is no real fight in her anymore.

BUT .. I realy love her playing style. It's a bit on how I want to play with LP. Get the speed out off the game and attack quickly

Regards Marc
