Sikki Reddy says that her new partnership with Ashwini Ponnappa was formed with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as the ultimate goal and the Asian Games two years hence as the first step. Hugo Lloris Jersey .Sikkis decision to team up with Ashwini came after the latter broke up with Jwala Gutta, three months after they competed at the 2016 Olympics. Jwala has called time on her womens doubles career and Sikki - currently ranked 111 in womens doubles and 23 in mixed doubles - hopes she will be able to take her place in the partnership with Ashwini.One month back, our Malaysian doubles coach Kim Tan Her, Gopi bhaiyya, Ashwini and I had a discussion and we decided to pair up. Of course, 2020 Tokyo was a reason but that is too far away, four long years, and we want to just focus on the smaller events now, Sikki told PTI.We are a scratch pairing so we have no ranking. We have to start with smaller events and make our way up. I hope we can gather some good ranking points and then target the Super Series and big events. 2018 Commonwealth Games and Asian Games will be the immediate targets for us.Sikki and Ashwini will be playing the Scottish Open (Nov 23-27), Welsh International (Nov 30-Dec 3) and Irish Open Dec 7-10) this year before combining again at the Malaysia Masters (Jan 17-22) and Syed Modi International (Jan 24-29) next year.Speaking about the partnership, Ashwini said: When I started with Jwala, I had zero exposure to international badminton but it is not the case with Sikki. She is experienced and has done well in mixed doubles. She has played super series events. So I think we will not take much time to gel well.The 23-year-old Sikki is left-handed like Jwala. Sikki said that being left-handed give her an additional advantage.Being a lefty is a big positive as I have got a lot of variations in my strokes. Of course, she has more experience in womens doubles and needs to guide me and believe in me, said Sikki, who had clinched the 2016 Brazil Grand Prix with Pranaav Jerry Chopra in mixed doubles.Asked how different is their combination from her pairing with Jwala, Ashwini said: There are few things which are quite different; Sikki and me can rotate more than before. If I move towards the net, she can cover the back of the court and vice versa.But we need to work on our strengths and weaknesses and it is going to be a great learning experience for the initial year for us, added Ashwini, who will also be pairing up with K Nanadagopal in mixed doubles in the upcoming three events.
