Saina moves a place up to 7th, Sindhu out of top 10
New Delhi: Following her Australian Open Super Series triumph, ace India shuttler Saina Nehwal today moved up a place to be in seventh position in the latest world rankings while P V Sindhu dropped out of the top 10 after a none-too-impressive outing in the same tournament.
While India`s Olympic bronze medallist shuttler Saina triumphed, compatriot Sindhu had to bite the dust as her campaign came to an end in the quarter-finals of Australian Open Super Series. Her poor performance pushed Sindhu a place back to 11th spot.
The upper half of the women`s singles table remained static with China`s Li Xuerui, Shixian Wang and Yihan Wang enjoying the top three positions, respectively.
Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand was at fifth place followed by South Korea`s Ji Hyun Sung.
In the men`s section, Parupalli Kashyap dropped a place to be the best-placed Indian shuttler at 21.
The men`s singles list is continued to be headed by Lee Chong Wei
