Shuttler Sindhu rises to No.7 in BWF rankings

IANS  |  New Delhi 

silver medallist P.V. Sindhu's maiden Open title and her subsequent runners-up finish at the Open, helped her gain two spots to the No.7 spot in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) women's singles rankings.

Sindhu, who skipped the ongoing Macau Open, has now assured herself a spot in the year-ending BWF Superseries Final in Dubai from December 14 to 18. Only the top-8 shuttlers are allowed to take part in the Superseries Final.

There was also good news for London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal, who clawed back to the top-10 of women's singles. The Hyderabadi rose one spot to the No.10 position in the rankings.

The women's singles rankings saw considerable changes in the top three, with Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying clinching the top spot after her Open title.

Rio gold medallist Carolina Marin of Spain lost a spot to the No.2 position while Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon also fell one rung to No.3.

In men's singles, Indian shuttler Sameer Verma's runner-up show at the Open was rewarded with a leap of 13 spots to No.30 while Kidambi Srikanth fell one spot to No.13 in the list led by Malaysian veteran Lee Chong Wei.

Among others, Open winner Ng Ka Long Angus vaulted five places to enter the top-10 and is now at No.9 spot.
