“Practice only for an hour everyday for the entire team? Gym timings the same.”
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Indian ace Saina Nehwal questioned the BWF over the time slot allowed for practice and gym in Thailand where the three tournaments are scheduled.
She also raised questions about the no access to physios and trainers and contacted the BWF with the concerns and since there was no reply she took to social media to address her queries.
According to Nehwal, since the BWF has allowed a limited time for practice and gym, there was no time for warm-ups, taping, cool down and stretches, “we are talking about the best players in the world competing isn’t it?
“We’ve spent a lot of money getting the physios and trainers along with us. If they can’t help us then why was this not told before?”
In one of the tweets, Nehwal wrote: “The physios and trainers cannot meet us during the entire tour after all of us have tested negative…how is it possible to maintain ourselves?”
The first of the cluster tournaments, Yonex Thailand Open starts next Tuesday.
