Manika Batra, one of India’s top female paddlers, has achieved a career-high milestone by securing the 31st slot in the ITTF world rankings. She is currently ranked 36th in the latest list. Batra’s stellar performance at the WTT Champions tournament in Frankfurt added another feather to her successful career. Despite a 0-3 defeat against China’s Wang Yidi in the round of 16, Batra’s journey in Frankfurt included a thrilling victory over Hong Kong’s Doo Hoi Kem in the round of 32. She stands as the sole Indian representative within the top 50 rankings in women’s singles.
