Olympic and world championship silver medallist P V Sindhu has once again retained her World No 2nd position in the latest (Badminton World Federation) BWF rankings, which were recently released on 26th October 2018.
PV Sindhu, who is currently competing at the French Open in Paris, jumped one spot to stay one spot behind Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying, who continues to dominate the rankings.
PV Sindhu had achieved the world no 2 ranking for a week for the first time in April last year but she slipped soon before regaining the position for almost two months from September to November. Sindhu slipped to world no 3 after that and held that spot for the most part of 2018.
Another Indian Star player Saina Nehwal, who had reached the finals of Denmark Open last week, was rewarded for her stupendous show as she too climbed one rung to reach the world No 9th position.
In the men's singles, Kidambi Srikanth remained static at world no 6, while Sameer Verma jumped five spots to be at the 18th position. H S Prannoy, who skipped the events in Denmark and France, slipped two places to be ranked 17th.
