New Delhi, 14 September: India’s HS Prannoy has moved up to 16th position in the BWF World Rankings. The rankings were released on Tuesday and Prannoy has been rewarded for his consistent performance on the tour. Prannoy has jumped 2 places in the men’s singles rankings.
Prannoy had earlier missed out on a Commonwealth Games ticket due to his ranking but the shuttler has been India’s most consistent performer even though he does not have many titles in his account. He played a vital role in India’s Thomas Cup victory and managed to reach the quarterfinals of the Japan Open and the BWF World Championship.
Prannoy recently became the top ranked player in the Race to Guangzhou rankings. This competition determines the qualifiers for the World Tour Finals at the end of the season.
