All TT league play including the Bundesliga has been suspended I believe as of Friday.

Round 22 (the final round) was canceled (not just suspended). It would not have made a significant difference in the final standings. The play-offs between the top 4 teams may still happen later this spring.

Kanak's first TTBL season is thus over, finishing with a 10-14 record. It looks like he may not stay with Grenzau and may have "better" options, but there hasn't been any public announcement.

There are rumors that Kanak might move to Ochsenhausen to replace Dyjas and play alongside Calderano and Gauzy.

But all decisions and announcements are probably on hold because of the current crisis, and its economic impact on club sponsors.

Edit:
Calderano has a European (Portuguese) passport, which would allow him to play indeed alongside Jha - TTBL regulations limit teams to 1 non-European player for each contest.

If they want to compete seriously though you would think they would use that spot on someone stronger than Kanak.  Unless they really believe in his potential, they could get some former CNT player and raise the overall level of the squad in the short term to Champions Cup contender.

Sure, but that could be a combination of finances (Kanak is cheaper...) and branding - if I'm not mistaken, Ochsenhausen has never had older players from Asia and is betting on youth and rising stars. The team is one thing, but they also have their training center, which attracts many young players from Europe:

Kanak has had some flashes of brilliance lately which indicates he might be on the verge of a breakthrough.  He is also still young so maybe the club can pick him up for slightly less money and make a huge return on investment. 

One thing I would worry about is that he is improving in his current environment.  If he changes locations, even if he trains with better players, it might effect the way he improves.  Finding the right coach and right practice partners is not easy.

Ryu Seung Min went there in 2012 for a 2 year contract if anyone remembers... and Ryu wasn't exactly a spring chicken at that time.

You're right, thanks! Ryu stayed for 2 seasons and then returned to South Korea to become the national coach.

Grenzau has confirmed that Kanak Jha is leaving the team. The Ochsenhausen rumor seems to be growing stronger.

In the meantime the German association has decided to terminate the season in all its leagues (i.e. everything except the TTBL, which is autonomous). That concerns a bunch of US players, male and female. In the women's Bundesliga, Lily Zhang's team finishes 3rd in the standings, Amy Wang's 4th, and Crystal Wang's 5th. Individual records:
Lily Zhang 11-5 (also 8-2 in doubles with Kristin Lang)
Amy Wang 1-4
Crystal Wang 3-7 (3-1 in doubles)

Thank you for the update.  In Rajul's interview on the USATT website, he mentioned Lily hit town a couple weeks ago.
