PV Sindhu surges to second spot in world rankings

New Delhi [India], Apr. 06 (ANI): Rio Olympics silver medallist P.V Sindhu jumped three places to achieve a career-best world number two ranking in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings released on Thursday.

Sindhu has become only the second Indian woman after star shuttler Saina Nehwal to break into the top-five of the world rankings by earning 75759 points.

The 21-year-old shuttler from Hyderabad had recently bagged her maiden India Open Super Series title after defeating Carolina Marin of Spain in the summit clash. But, she suffered a shocking defeat in the opening round of the ongoing Malaysia Open Super Series in Kuching.

Meanwhile, Saina, who also lost in the first round of the Malaysia Open, however, lost a place to be at ninth position in the ranking table.

The women’s singles chart is led by Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei with 87911 points. (ANI)
