Olympic medallist PV Sindhu climbed up two places to achieve third spot in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings released on Thursday.
Sindhu’s upward move in rankings came after she made a quarter-final finish at the Singapore Open Superseries, where she went down 11-21,15-21 at the hands of World No.3 and long-time arch-rival Carolina Marin of Spain.
Earlier this month, Sindhu had attained her career-best world number two ranking after clinching her maiden India Open Super Series title. She, however, was once again dropped to World No 5 following a first round exit at the Malaysian Open.
The women’s singles chart is led by Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei with 93721 points, while Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia is leading the men’s singles chart with 81703 points -(KK, MR)
