Prannoy recently advanced to the quarterfinals of both the Japan Open Super 750 and the World Championships while playing in excellent form. He moved up one place to 15th. The Indian shuttler last appeared in the top 15 in October 2018. The former World No. 8 has recently shown to be a formidable opponent on the international scene.

Lakshya Sen, a rising star, maintained his place as the top-ranked Indian in the men’s standings at ninth, while Kidambi Srikanth moved up one spot to 11th.

Sen has been in excellent form this year and just won gold in the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

In the most recent rating for women, two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu maintained her sixth-place position. Due to an injury, Sindhu had to skip the Japan Open and the World Championships. She’s still getting better after the setback.

Saina Nehwal, who won bronze in the London Olympics, moved up one spot to take the 31st slot in the latest rankings for women.

India also has a few players that moved up in the doubles rankings. Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, a men’s doubles team, held steady at eighth place in the new standings. A bronze medal at the World Championships and their first-ever gold at the Commonwealth Games demonstrate how strong Rankireddy and Shetty have been.

The Indian team that advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Championship included MR Arjun and Dhruv Kapila. The pair climbed three positions to take 23rd.

Ashwini Ponnappa and Sikki Reddy improved their position in the women’s doubles rankings on Tuesday, moving up two spots to 23rd.
