New Delhi: Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu today 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.
