There are so many tournaments including the few prestigious ones. Some tournaments are also mandatory to play. It is going to be very challenging for the players to pick and choose the events: Saina Nehwal
Media reported Saina Nehwal as saying "Next year's schedule by BWF is too cramped, it is not right for the top players. I need more time to get the best out of me. I can't play back-to-back events. I can just participate but can't win."
"After the PBL we have three tournaments. Again before the World Championship, there are three super series, so I am not understanding why BWF decided to go for such a schedule. It will be too tiring, too challenging," Nehwal added.
Olympic champion and two-time world championship gold medalist Carolina Marin also said similar things
According to media reports, Marin also called new rule "stupid."
