The men’s doubles pair of MR Arjun and Dhruv Kapila moved closer to top-20 by jumping two spots to be at a career high 21st in the list issued on Tuesday. PV Sindhu remained at sixth in the women’s singles rankings while the combination of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty is ranked eighth in men’s doubles.
