India's women's doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa started their campaign with a dominating straight-game win in the opening round of the Bitburger Open Grand Prix Gold in Saarbrucken, Germany.

The Commonwealth Games gold-medallist pair brushed aside Germany's Anika Dorr and Annika Horbach 21-14, 21-11 in a 23-minute match last night.
Bronze-medallist at the 2011 London World Championship, Jwala and Ashwini rode on their powerful smashes and better net play to annihilate Anika and Annika.
They will next take on fourth-seeded Malaysian pair of Hui Ern Ng and Hui Lin Ng in the next round.
However, it was curtains for P C Thulasi in the women's singles competition when the Indian lost her battle against sixth seed Sashina Vignes Waran of France 21-18, 14-21, 14-21 in a match that lasted 54 minutes.
Jwala and Ashwini, who started playing together again after a gap of one year during the French Open, were in control of the match and never allowed their rivals to post much of a challenge.
