Saina Nehwal is not the only hard-working player: Jwala Gutta

Despite winning gold at the Commonwealth Games 2010, a bronze at the Badminton World Championship (a first in India's history for a women's doubles pair) and qualifying for the London Olympics 2012, badminton ace Jwala Gutta, by her own admission, is a disappointed champion.
After playing for the last 20 years, she says she's been forced to become the highly vocal detractor that she is today. The reason, she says, is the "step-daughterly treatment" meted out to her and some other players by the Badminton Association of India. In a chat with TOI, Jwala, not afraid of shooting from the lip, gives us some candid answers about the fight for endorsements, the discrimination against players, the newly launched Indian Badminton League and why Saina Nehwal is not the only hard-working player.
