In her bid to book a ticket to the Olympics, Jwala Gutta is eyeing a good run at the Indian Open that started yesterday.

 “I have fond memories of the venue. This is a crucial tournament and a good run here can guarantee me a berth,” said Jwala. “I never thought of the Olympic qualification and it is something which makes me feel very special.

I always try to do something new and delighted that I’ll achieve such a special feat. It feels great when people say they expect a medal from me,” she said. Jwala admitted playing doubles at the international tournament is tough and competitive. “Doubles at international level is tough as there are minimum three-four top doubles pairs from China, Malaysia, Indonesia. It becomes difficult for us (Indian pairs) to progress,” she said.
