Hyderabad (PTI): Together they won three mixed doubles titles last year but Jwala Gutta and V Diju say they don't have the "expertise" of a doubles player and called for the appointment of a specialised coach.
Jwala and Diju, who won three international tournaments -- Bulgaria Open Grand Prix , Bitburger Open Grand Prix, Nepal International Series -- last year, feel its their mutual co-ordination and practice that works in their favour.
"Me and Diju also don't have the expertise of a doubles player, it's just that we have a very good co-ordination and we understand each other so well that we are doing well. We have practiced a lot," Jwala told PTI.
"India needs a specialised doubles coach, the sort of coach we have in singles. If India wants to do well in team events, it is very important to have a specialised coach who can teach the players the technicalities of the game, travel with the team and help the players analyse their and their opponents games," Jwala said.
