Jwala-Ashwini drop a place to World No.12

New Delhi, Oct 8 (IANS) Top Indian doubles shuttlers Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa dropped a spot to be ranked No.12 in the latest women’s doubles rankings released by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Thursday.

Following their quarter-final loss at the World Championships in August, they were first knocked out from the first round of the Japan Open after which they withdrew from the Korea Open as the left-handed Jwala was unwell. This led to the drop.

Manu Attri and B. Sumeeth Reddy also slid a place to be at No.20 in men’s doubles.

Meanwhile, ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal is still ranked World No.1 in women’s singles followed by P.V. Sindhu at No.13.

Indian men’s singles shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth, Parupalli Kashyap and H.S. Prannoy also remained static at No.5, 8 and 16 respectively.
