first_imgTheir confidence comes from the fact they have have won Their confidence comes from the fact they have have won the most number of deciding points this season. They played 73 such crucial points and their winning percentage was 66. “From next year, we should be making the Grand Slams. Its just about kind of getting into the big league, playing those matches. In doubles anything can happen. Its unpredictable. If you ask a singles player ranked like us, it would be difficult for him but in doubles, level is almost same,” Sharan said. “You name a top-20 player and we have played them. Level is same, just one or two points here and there. Its about winning those seven matches in a row. That makes good teams great team. We hope to be there,” Raja said further. Sharan appreciated the support he gets from Indian Oil, where he is employed. “I had had support from Indian oil. I get salary and perks and kit from Adidas, racquet from Head.” Raja though said they have reached a stage in their career when they need a trainer and coach to travel with them. “We are getting into 30s, the prime years of doubles. We will invest if someone can help us out for a trainer. That makes a big difference. Its one or two percent that makes the difference.” Both Sharan and Raja have been without a regular coach and a trainer all these years and have got some help from a few people when they do not play tournaments.
