Double Olympic medalist PV Sindhu returned to the world top 10 rankings jumping two places to become world number 10 in the latest BWF rankings on Tuesday.

Struggling with her form in 2023, PV Sindhu has displayed some consistency in the past few weeks with two semi-final finishes in the Arctic Open and Denmark Open.

Sindhu overcame opponents like Gregoria Mariska Tunjung, and Supanida Katethong, and played a tight match against Carolina Marin in the semi-finals before bowing out.

The consistency has resulted in PV Sindhu marking her return to the world's top 10 after a wait of six months. After falling to world number 17 in August, Sindhu slowly climbed back towards world top 10.

Tanisha Crasto and Ashwini Ponappa jumped eight spots in women's doubles to become the world number 30 after winning the Abu Dhabi Masters Super 100 tournament last week.

Gayatri Gopichand and Treesa Jolly remained India's number-one pair with a world rank of 18.

In men's singles, HS Prannoy remained India's top shuttler with world rank eight while Lakshya Sen and Kidambi Srikanth slipped to world number 17 and world number 22 respectively.

Asian Games champions Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty kept their world rank one in men's doubles despite missing the Denmark Open 2023 owing to a last-minute withdrawal.
