Hyderabad: The ongoing battle between shuttler Jwala Gutta and Badminton Association of India (BAI) continued Saturday as beauty of badminton arena said she might miss out of playing in next month's China Open because BAI didn't send her entry for the Super Series Premier event by the stipulatedOctober 8 deadline.
The China Open is to be held from November 12 to 17 in Shanghai and the last date for sending the entries was last Tuesday.
Jwala came to know about it only Saturday. "I have no idea. I just learnt from Ashwini (Ponnappa)that they did not send my China Open entries also. I was supposed to play at my own cost. I am not even asking them to put me in the team," Jwala told reporters.
"I am playing tournaments at my own cost. Even then, you are stopping me from playing, who are you to stop me from playing? Whose way I am coming. I am not coming anybody's way also. You send who you want to. I am playing at my own cost.
The BAI had earlier withdrawn her name from next week's Denmark Open after forming a three-member committee to decide on the recommended life ban on the top shuttler by its disciplinary committee for a disciplinary breach in the IBL.
Jwala tried to seek help from Chief National coach Pullela Gopichand but he expressed his inability in this matter.
"I had called Gopi but he said he could not help," Jwala said.
Facing a life ban, Jwala had dragged BAI to the Delhi High Court, which allowed her to participate in upcoming tournaments yesterday.
The Commonwealth Games gold medallist today said that she wants to focus on her game and play tournaments.
