The men’s singles has a new world number one, Denmark’s Viktor Axelsen. This comes following on from his success at Badminton World Championships at the end of August in Glasgow where he became the world champion. So there’s no real surprise to see him at the top of the world rankings. There also no doubting his talent either with some trademark shots already taking the game by storm.
Son Wan Ho from South Korea drops to number two with China’s Lin Dan at three. Meanwhile in the women’s singles Tai Tzu Ying of Taiwan continues her dominance of the women’s game. That said India’s Pusarla V. Sindhu is closing in moving up to second place.
Taking a quick look at the men’s doubles shows Indonesian pair Marcus Fernaldi Gideon / Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo top the rankings ahead of Denmark’s paring of Mathias Boe / Carsten Mogensen.
