World No. 17 Chetan Anand said on Tuesday that exposure had helped Indian players raise their performance at international events.
Top seeded at the Jaypee Cup Syed Modi International Grand Prix Badminton Tournament, Chetan said the benefits of playing against countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and South Korea were immense.
“Nowadays, there are lot of international tourneys and Indian players have opportunities to rub shoulders with international players and improve their skills,” the Arjuna Awardee said. Chetan also accepted that he was facing a fitness problem due to uninterrupted matches.
“You have to travel too much and play international matches for which players need to maintain their fitness,” he added.
