A few months earlier, Saina Nehwal hailed the move of the Tokyo Olympics being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Saina, a bronze-winner at the 2012 Games, said, "Happy that it's postponed even though some of us haven't qualified. We are eager to know what the qualification [process] would be like going ahead."

"As an athlete who's played Olympics before I would say it's good as everyone can chill now and not worry about preparations amid a lockdown. We all have to be safe first and then we can think about preparations," she added, referring to the lockdown in India to contain the pandemic.
