BWF Rankings: PV Sindhu reaches second spot; Saina Nehwal rises to ninth

Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu climbs up to World No.2 ranking in the latest badminton rankings, as released on Thursday.

The Rio Olympic silver medallist jumped one place from her spot but still stays behind Chinese Taipei’s Tai Tzu Ying, who continues to rule the chart rankings.

Earlier, Sindhu had achieved the No.2 ranking for just a week in April last year but soon slipped down. She came down to No.3 ranking and held that spot for the most part of 2018.
