Who holds the top spot in the badminton BWF World Singles World Rankings?

Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen has been ranked men’s singles world No. 1 since December 2021, and the Dane is approaching two years on the throne.

The current women’s singles world champion An Se-young has been in top position for eleven weeks. However her recent knee tendon injury could lead to a change at the top in the coming weeks.

Japan’s former world No. 1 Yamaguchi Akane is not far behind.

Malaysia’s star shuttler Lee Zii Jia has surged three places to 11th position thanks to his win at the Arctic Open.
