With their deep runs at the Syed Modi International in Lucknow, India’s Malvika Bansod was among the big movers in the badminton rankings published today.
Bansod finished runner-up against PV Sindhu, and produced a superb win against young Anupama Upadhyaya in the semi-final. The 16-year-old, who is top 10 in the junior ranking, also entered top 100 in the senior circuit.
Ishaan Bhatnagar-Tanisha Crasto, who won the mixed doubles title, and Treesa Jolly-Gayatri Gopichand, women’s doubles runners-up also made big gains.
With Mithun Manjunath the only Indian in semi-finals of men’s singles, there were no changes in the category of the rankings. Manjunath himself moved up 28 places to 93.
