Johor Bahru: Indian mixed doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and V Diju suffered a straight-game defeat at the hands of top seeded Danish duo of Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christinna Pedersen in the summit clash of the World Super Series Masters Finals here on Sunday.
Seventh seeded Jwala and Diju, who have been having an eventful season with two titles, lost 14-21, 18-21 in just 37 minutes.
The Indian duo who surprised many to reach the final of the season-ending tournament lacked consistency in smashes and long rallies though it was an even contest in net play.
