Hyderabad: Olympic-bound shuttler Jwala Gutta feels the ongoing selection row in tennis shows Indian sports in poor light and AITA could have sorted out the issue much earlier.
"It was not necessary. They (AITA) could have kept it to themselves. Everybody knew that Leander and Mahesh would be playing Olympics. They could have sorted it out much earlier," Jwala said.
"I don't know why such a thing happened just now. AITA could have done it within themselves, instead of making new announcements every day. Something, I don't know why was it done. It gives a bad name not only to tennis, to the sport on the well," she said.
