BWF Sudirman Cup: Rising Stars Jolly and Pullela Make Waves in Badminton

In the last year, Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand Pullela have made significant strides in their badminton careers. At the 2022 All England tournament, they surprised everyone by reaching the semifinals. This year, they repeated their semifinal feat with even more confidence and assurance.

Their performances in Birmingham showcased their ability to compete against top opponents. They defeated formidable pairs such as Jongkolphan Kititharakul/Rawinda Prajongjai, Yuki Fukushima/Sayaka Hirota, and Li Wen Mei/Liu Xuan Xuan before falling to Baek Ha Na/Lee So Hee. Jolly’s attacking prowess, complemented by Pullela’s strong front court game, was particularly impressive.

Throughout the past year, Jolly and Pullela achieved semifinal finishes at events like the Commonwealth Games and the HYLO Open. Victories over pairs like Lee/Shin Seung Chan, Benyapa Aimsaard/Nuntakarn Aimsaard, and Pearly Tan/Thinaah Muralitharan have solidified their position among the best in the world.

These successes have led to a noticeable increase in their confidence both on and off the court. After their quarterfinal match in Birmingham, Pullela boldly declared their intention to win the title. They believe they are on par with the top pairs and are determined to prove it.

Looking ahead, Jolly and Pullela’s skills will be invaluable for India’s campaign at the upcoming TotalEnergies BWF Sudirman Cup Finals 2023, the World Mixed Team Championships. The dynamic duo’s contribution to the team was evident at the Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships 2023, where they won all four of their matches, including a victory over Malaysia’s Tan/Muralitharan.

India is placed in Group C, along with Malaysia, Chinese Taipei, and Australia, making it the most challenging group to predict. However, with Jolly and Pullela’s exceptional form, India has an edge.
