About Koneru Humpy


Humpy Koneru (Telugu: కోనేరు హంపీ) (born 31 March 1987 in Gudivada, Andhra Pradesh) is a chess grandmaster from India. Her October 2007 FIDE Elo rating was 2606, placing her at number two in the world for women (behind Judit Polgar), breaking the record of 2577 set by Susan Polgar for the second-highest ranked female player in Chess history and becoming the second female player ever, after Judit Polgar, to cross the 2600 elo mark.[1] [2] Humpy was originally named Hampi (after the ancient city) by her parents but her father later changed it to Humpy, a more Russian-sounding name. She writes her family name (Koneru) before her given name[citation needed], as is the convention with Telugu speaking people. Humpy held the record from 2002 to 2008 for the youngest woman ever to become a grandmaster (not merely a Woman Grandmaster), which she achieved in 15 years, 1
