Sindhu drops out of top-10

New Delhi, April 10: A first round exit from the India Open last week means P.V. Sindhu drops a place to No.11 in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) women’s singles rankings released Thursday.

Spain’s Carolina Marin jumped three places to No.10, overtaking the Indian. Meanwhile, Saina Nehwal retained her No.8 spot.

Parupalli Kashyap’s semi-final appearance at the Swiss Open and the quarter-final performance at the India Open bore fruit as he re-entered the top-20 of men’s singles in 19th position.

The Hyderabadi has leapt four places while reigning national champion Kidambi Srikanth remains stagnant at No.25.

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