Suara.com – PBSI’s Head of Development and Achievement (Kabid Binpres), Rionny Mainaky, hopes that Hafiz Faizal / Gloria Emanuelle Widjaja can perform optimally at the 2021 Swiss Open which will take place on March 2 to 7.
This was conveyed by Rionny after another European leg tournament, namely the 2021 German Open, was officially canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic in Germany.
Without the 2021 German Open, Rionny hopes that Hafiz / Gloria can maximize the two European leg tournaments in order to earn as many qualifying points as possible.
The two European leg tournaments that Hafiz / Gloria will participate in besides the Swiss Open are the All England 2021 which will also roll out in March.

“So we send Hafiz / Gloria to the Swiss Open which is a tournament for Olympic qualification,” said Rionny Mainaky in a release on Monday (15/2/2021).
“We really hope Hafiz / Gloria can do their best in this tournament, so that they can add to their ranking points. So that the pair under them don’t catch up.”
Referring to the Race to Tokyo standings on the official website of the World Badminton Federation (BWF), Hafiz / Gloria are in eighth place.
This condition is clearly not safe considering that the eighth position is the minimum position for a country to pass a maximum of two representatives to the Tokyo Olympics.
Hafiz / Gloria could at any time be knocked out of the top eight, considering that the difference between their points and the rivals below them is very thin.
Apart from Hafiz / Gloria, another representative who is also struggling to win multievent tickets for four years is Praveen Jordan / Melati Daeva Oktavianti.
