Shuttler PV Sindhu dropped five spots to world number 17 in the most recent BWF rankings on Tuesday. Her elimination from the US Open quarterfinals against lower-ranked Gao Fang Jie corresponds with the decline in ranking. Prior to the US Open, PV Sindhu was defeated by Akane Yamaguchi in the Canada Open semifinals.
Despite a good performance in previous competitions, Sindhu’s rating is declining as a result of the 2023 season’s rocky start. Sindhu has fallen from world rank 7 at the start of the year to world rank 17 as a result of failing to win a title.
PV Sindhu admitted that her year hasn’t gone well so far and added that last week’s loss in the US Open quarterfinals had a “significant emotional impact” on her.

Meanwhile, after the Indonesia Open, HS Prannoy did not compete in any tournaments. This caused him to slip one spot to world number 10 in the men’s singles. Lakshya Sen remained at number 12 and Kidambi Srikanth remained at number 20, respectfully.
Even though they did not play after winning the Indonesia Open, Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty still hold the third-ranked spot in the world in men’s doubles.
Gayatri Gopichand and Treesa Jolly plummeted to world number 19 in women’s doubles. And if they don’t play effectively at Korea Open, they might fall outside the top 20.
The best mixed doubles team in India remains Rohan Kapoor and N Sikki Reddy. They are now ranked 35 in the world.
