A second round loss at the Malaysia Open Super Series Premier last week saw India’s Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal drop a place to No.9 in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings released on Thursday.Saina Nehwal has a good chance to climb up once again if she progresses to the semifinals or final of the ongoing India Grand Prix Gold in Lucknow.

The Olympic bronze medallist, however, has a good chance to climb up once again if she progresses to the semifinals or final of the ongoing India Grand Prix Gold in Lucknow.

World Championship bronze medallist P.V. Sindhu, however, maintained her No.11 ranking and is also expected to rise up the ladder when next week’s rankings are released.

It was good news for the top male shuttlers though as Parupalli Kashyap jumped two places to No.18 while Mumbai’s Ajay Jayaram rose a place to No.21.

No Indian, however, figures in the top-25 of the men’s, women’s and mixed doubles rankings.
