Our players have accepted/ gelled with Handoyo coaching style and started given the results ... Definitely a setback for us.

Yes, this year our players like Sirknath,Prannoy, Praneeth benefitted a lot from Handoyo's presence as Gopichand himself cannot pay good level of attention to all players. Sad that he seems to be leaving. We need to get a similar level of replacement to keep the improvement going.

Nice summary of our current doubles scene by doubles coach Kim Tan Her-

India has a long way to go in doubles, says coach Kim Tan Her

There has indeed been some good improvement since Kim joined the coaching team. Satwik-Chirag are now #25 ,Manu-Sumeeth #30 and Arjun-Shlok #25 in mens doubles, Ashwini-Sikki #25 in womens doubles, Pranav-Sikki #21 and Satwik-Ashwini #58 in mixed doubles.

Hope by 2020, we can get at least 1 pair each in top 10 which can make them medal contenders at Olympics. Not easy to achieve that though.
