A former world number one who won Olympic bronze at London 2012. It will be unfair for most of the players who are really close to qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic.
Kashyap added: “We all had seven events starting from the Spain Masters till the Singapore Open and an insufficient have the Asian Champs too. Now that German Open is canceled and the Swiss Open looking doubtful, and Singapore and Malaysia Opens also with the same worries, it will be completely unfair for so many athletes who are on the borderline of qualification at this moment. I hope all the athletes have a fair chance to qualify for the Tokyo Olympic.”
