Fourteen times National Badminton Championship and Arjuna award winner Jwala Gutta didn’t take too kindly to a few lines that read, “Though not much was expected from the doubles teams…”
She tweeted, “Though no one ever cared for doubles and the doubles players…these irresponsible statements is definitely what we don’t need!!” (Reported on 27 April, 2017)
Her tweet reflected her anger with outright shaming of the players instead of constructive criticism.
Though some supported her remarks saying that we should value our players others took it upon themselves to share their pearls of wisdom.
