The players had unsuccessfully requested to play the final with no crowd watching.

Other sporting events in the country like men's Series A soccer and women's rugby have also been cancelled.

Previously, the sport has experienced the cancellation of a few ATP Challenger events, a WTA $125K event and several ITF tour events in China.
