The schedule for September is ridiculous now. 3 weeks in a row with only one tournament in Asia, and the only tier 2 in the middle.
They should have replaced Leipzig with another tournament in Europe. In Practice they replaced it with nothing.
It's a joke to say Beijing replaced Leipzig, it replaced Shanghai!
It would be impossible to do this year, but in the future the decline of indoor tournaments gives opportunity to shorten the back end of the season. There's no sense to start the European indoor series in Early October and leave a huge hole in September. It should be brought forward a week if not two.
