Jwala-Ashwini set to team up
India's most successful doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa will be reuniting again. The two, after parting ways after the London Olympics last year, are likely to be seen in action as early as October.
Speaking to The Indian Express Jwala said, "Ashwini and I have spoken to each other and we think it is best for the country and for us that we play together because we complement each other very well and we have achieved success at the World Championships and the Commonwealth Games. We are planning to start playing together again from October."
"Looking at the results at the recent World Championships, I believe that Ashwini and I must team-up together again because we are the best combination. We won the bronze two years ago at the World Championships," Jwala said.

Ashwini Ponnappa-Jwala Gutta to renew partnership in Denmark
Doubles shuttler Ashwini Ponnappa will join hands with former partner Jwala Gutta once again, starting from the Denmark Open Super Series Premier Oct 15-20.
The 2011 World Championships women’s doubles bronze medallists will also play the French Open Super Series (Oct 22-27) and the Bitburger SaarLoxLux Open Grand Prix Gold (Oct 29-Nov 3) together.
“Next set of matches are in oct where @Guttajwala & I would play women’s doubles and @KonaTarun n I mixed doubles. Looking forward to it ,” Ashwini had tweeted.
The successful combine separated after Jwala decided to take a sabbatical following the London Olympics last year. Since then, Ashwini has been playing with Pradnya Gadre.
The 23-year-old Coorgi will, however, skip the China Masters Super Series and the Japan Open Super Series in September.
“We will train and get fit in that period and get back to the tournaments after that,” the Commonwealth Games gold medallist told IANS.

I kinda dislike Ashwini...No offence,but she always makes some incredibly stupid mistakes which contributes to her team regardless of whichever good partners (mixed doubles) to lose some dear points.
