Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu on Thursday climbed up two places to be at No. 3 in the latest BWF ranking released today.
Sindhu, who had slipped to number five last week, earned two spots on the basis of making the quarterfinals of the recently-concluded Singapore Open Super Series.
The 21-year-old Sindhu had reached a career-best World No. 2 two weeks ago. London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal also jumped up a place to be ranked eighth.
In the men’s singles, the finalists of the Singapore Open — runner-up Kidambi Srikanth and winner B Sai Praneeth — both jumped as many as eight positions each to be placed at 21st and 22nd respectively.
Ajay Jayaram continued to be the highest-ranked Indian at the 13th position, having moved a place.
