Viktor Axelsen Holds Firm at World No. 1 in Latest BWF Singles Rankings


Share post:


In October 2023, Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen celebrated his 100th consecutive week as men’s singles world No.1 ahead of Anthony Ginting (Indonesia).

On Sunday (12 November), two-time world champion Momota Kento ended his two-year title drought by winning the BWF Korea Masters. As a result, the Japanese player has climbed 11 places to 41st in the rankings.

The current women’s singles world champion An Se-young has been in top position for 15 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 stays in 11th position despite having to withdraw from the Korea Masters.
