Back-to-back victories in a single month will now increase both their rating and confidence. However, Chirag says there is no room for complacency and greater things must be accomplished.

“We do not fear anybody; they might be thinking, ‘Oh, we are playing Satwik-Chirag”.

Satwik and Chirag had incredible battling energy against world no. 1 in the Korea Open men’s doubles finals, their second consecutive BWF World Tour final in just over a month.
