Two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu and former world number one Kidambi Srikanth remained static in the latest badminton world rankings, but the men’s doubles duo of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty moved up two places to eighth after their triumph in the Indian Open. Former world champion Sindhu maintained her seventh position with 90994 in the women’s ranking, while Srikanth remained in tenth place with 69158 points in the men’s table.

Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu leads the women’s ranking with 108,800 points, while reigning Olympic champion Victor Axelsen leads the men’s ranking with 116,779 points.

From the Indian perspective, the biggest winner has been the Indian men’s doubles pair of Satwiksairaj and Chirag, who jumped from 10th to 8th place with 76708 points in the latest rankings issued by the Badminton World Federation (BWF).

They defeated top-seeded Indonesian pair Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan 21-16, 26-24 to win the men’s doubles crown at the Yonex-Sunrise India Open on Sunday.

Coming into the match with a 1-3 head-to-head record, Satwik and Chirag put up a valiant effort against the Indonesian pair and staved off a comeback to reign in the final.

Satwik and Chirag had both won the Thai Open Super 500 title in 2019, as well as reaching the French Open Super 750 final the same year.

There were no Indians in the women’s doubles and mixed doubles rankings.
