After Thailand Open Victory, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty


Regain Top Spot in the BWF Rankings

In the most recent Badminton World Federation (BWF) Rankings, the elite Indian men’s badminton team of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty has taken back the top rank.

Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, the famous Indian men’s badminton combo, have recaptured the top rank in the current Badminton World Federation (BWF) Rankings after winning the Thailand Open last week. Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy, Asian Games gold medalists, won the men’s doubles title at the Thailand Open Super 500 badminton tournament on Sunday. They defeated China’s Chen Bo Yang and Liu Yi in straight sets to add another title to their trophy cabinet. They now have two Thailand Open titles, after winning the first in 2019.

In the most recent updated rankings released on Tuesday, ‘Sat-Chi’ has advanced two slots to reclaim the top spot, with 99,670 points.

The world number three defeated Chen and Yi 21-15, 21-15 to win their seventh BWF world tour title. This is their second title of the year, following their win at the French Open in March.

“The Thailand Open was a memorable tournament for us because we won our first Super 500 title here and went on to win many more tournaments after then. We’re expecting that this victory will kick off another winning streak for us,” Satwik stated after winning the championship, according to BAI.

When asked about their performance in the final, Satwik stated that they played their best against their Chinese opponents.

“We knew we couldn’t afford to lose even a single point against our opponents, who fight until the end.” But we played our best game of the tournament tonight and kept the situation under control,” he explained.

Tanisha Crasto and Ashwini Ponnappa of India, who advanced to the semifinals of the Thailand Open, have risen two spots to number 19.

Shuttler Meiraba Luwang Masnam, who had a fairytale run in the event, reaching the quarterfinals after defeating world number nine HS Prannoy and world number 54 Mads Christensen, also climbed 13 ranks to world number 71.
