New Delhi: An Olympic berth is top of her agenda but Jwala Gutta won't exactly be gutted if it doesn't come about as India's top women's doubles shuttler feels that obsessing about a London ticket would only create unnecessary pressure.
Jwala would be partnering Ashwini Ponnappa and V Diju at the Asian Badminton Championships and the Indian Open in the women's and mixed doubles category respectively. They have to secure enough ranking points before the May 3 deadline to earn an Olympic berth and Jwala said she is taking it easy mentally to ensure there is no undue pressure.
"We have created history, so we don't need to worry. I have spoken to both my partners that we shouldn't take pressure. It doesn't matter if we don't qualify. Yes, Olympics is precious but if you keep thinking about Olympics then you will take pressure," said Jwala.
