PV Sindhu gained two spots to 15th place, while Kidambi Srikanth fell one spot to 20th in the current BWF World ranking, which was revealed on Tuesday.

Sindhu, who is going through a hard stretch, reached the Australian Open quarter-finals after losing to eventual champion Beiwen Zhang of the United States last week.

Srikanth had also fallen in the final eight in Sydney, this time to fellow Indian Priyanshu Rajawat. HS Prannoy, the runner-up at the Australian Open, and Lakshya Sen remained at world Nos. 9 and 11, respectively.

Rajawat gained three spots to world No. 28 after finishing in the semi-finals of a Super 500 competition in Sydney last week, while Mithun Manjunath and Kiran George advanced seven and six slots to 43rd and 49th, respectively.

Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty are the best-placed Indians in men’s doubles, ranking second in the world.

Last month, the Indian duo won the Korea Open, defeating Indonesia’s world No.1 pair Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto 17-21, 21-13, 21-14 in 62 minutes to win the BWF World Tour Super 500 tournament. Rankireddy and Shetty have been on a run this year, winning four titles in 2023, three on the BWF World Tour and one at the Asia Championships. Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand’s women’s doubles team dropped two positions to 19th place.
