"It's (appointment of doubles coach) a good thing for Indian badminton. But, I only wish that he should be the sole decision maker. Nobody else should interfere with his decisions for doubles. If that happens, that will be good for doubles in the country," Jwala said.

Jwala's partner Ashwini Ponnappa also gave a thumbs up to the decision of Badminton Association of India (BAI) to rope in the experienced Kim Tan Her.

"I think it's a huge boost for us as doubles players. It's going to be really helpful. We are looking forward to it," Ashwini said.

Four years ago, 2010 Commonwealth Games champions Jwala and Ashwini had broken a 28-year-old medal drought for India by winning the bronze at the World Championship in London and the celebrated pair is now gearing up for the prestigious event at Indonesia, where they will enter as seeded pairs.

"I think we are the first (Indian) women doubles pair ever to be seeded (in world championship), so I am really excited on entering the tournament on a high. I am very happy about it," Jwala said.

The 2011 Glasgow Commonwealth Games silver medallists received a boost ahead of the World Championship after they clinched the Canada Open Grand Prix in June.

Jwala, who trains with Dronacharya awardee S M Arif here, said their preparation for the upcoming event has been good.

"It's been good. I went to Bangalore to train with Ashwini for a few days. We have had a couple of good sessions. Ashwini and me, we are feeling really good, top of our game. Just looking forward to it," Jwala said.

Echoing Jwala's feelings, Ashwini said their aim is to win a medal though they would like to take it step by step.

"The preparations have been good. Jwala and I did manage to get a couple of sessions together, which is really good again. Our expectation is obviously to do really well and win a medal. We are going to represent the country at world championships and the aim is to get past the first round and take it step by step," Ashwini said.
