Rising Indian shuttler H.S. Prannoy dropped four places to be ranked No.21 in the latest men’s singles rankings released by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Thursday.
Prannoy, who beat legendary Chinese shuttler Lin Dan at the French Open last month, has had a string of early round losses, leading him to drop by four spots. Mumbai’s Ajay Jayaram also dropped a place to be ranked No.25.
Kidambi Srikanth and reigning Commonwealth Games champion Parupalli Kashyap, meanwhile, maintained their spots at No.5 and No.12, respectively.
Likewise, Saina Nehwal and P.V. Sindhu also stayed at No.2 and No.13 in women’s singles rankings. Jwala Gutta and Ashwini also did not move and remained at No.11 in women’s doubles rankings.
But Manu Attri and B. Sumeeth Reddy dropped two places in men’s doubles rankings.
