Hyderabad: Elated with Delhi High Court's order to allow her to take part in national and international tournaments, top doubles shuttler Jwala Gutta on Friday thanked everyone who stood by her during the hour of crisis.

"I am very very happy that the order of the honourable judge was in our favour. Happy that I am allowed to play. My whole life I have done nothing but played badminton. I just hope I continue to do that and bring laurels to the country, and make everyone proud," said Jwala.

Extending her gratitude to her doubles partner Ashwini Ponnappa and her coaches, Jwala said, "I am thankful to Clean Sports India (CSI) who openly lend its support and to Ashwini, who was also going through a lot of stress because it was not only my entry that was withdrawn from the Denmark Open but also hers. So I am really glad that she understood me and stood by me. That makes me really very strong.
