Saina will need big performances in at least 2-3 tournaments to stay in top 16 by June which is olympiad cut-off time. Aa of now she is #27 in race to Tokyo rankings.

2019 Year-end rankings (with last year's rankings in bracket)- ( only top 50 players)

Men's Singles
11 B. Sai Praneeth (22)
12 Srikanth Kidambi (8)
23 Purupalli Kashyap (44)
26 H. S. Prannoy (20)
28 Saurabh Varma (54)
32 Lakshya Sen (109)
33 Sameer Varma (12)
44 Subhankar Dey (49)

Women's Singles

6 P. V. Sindhu (3)
11 Saina Nehwal (9)

Men's Doubles
12 Satwiksairaj Ranikreddy / Chirag Shetty (16)
30 Manu Attri / B. Sumeeth Reddy (25)
49 Arjun M.R/ Shlok Ramchandran (40)

Women's Doubles
30 Sikki Reddy / Ashwini Ponnappa (23)
46 Pooja Dandu / Sanjana Santosh
50 JAKKAMPUDI Meghana /Poorvisha S RAM (31)

Mixed Doubles
28 Sikki Reddy / Pranav Chopra (23)
36 Ashwini Ponappa / Satwiksairak Ranikreddy (22)
47 K. Manisha / MR Arjun

In mens singles we continue to have great depth - 8 players in top 50 which is more than China and Japan but sadly none is able to make a leap to top 5 ( after Srikanth did so briefly a couple of years back). When will we take that next step in mens singles ?
The other notable improvement is by Satwik-Chirag who are ranked #12 only because they missed a few months due to injury. In race to Tokyo rankings they are #8 which appears to be their real world ranking as of now.
Other than everyone else has gone down.

It is Lakshya as in T-A-R-G-E-T. There is a typo above.

Can we start a all-time badminton highest ranking achieved thread for Indian players? I will try to collect some of the data and post but was thinking that maybe some of you already know/have that or part of that information. Even if it is partial, post it, and then we can collectively add. Or do we already have some such thread?

Here is list which Rajighosh had posted on page 4 of this thread itself in 2014-
Here are a few all time high rankings, restricted to top 25 only.
Prakash Padukone:1
Saina Nehwal:2
Nandu Natekar: 4 ?
Gopichand: 5
Jwala Gutta/ V Diju: 6
Parupalli Kashyap: 6
Ami Ghia: 7
PV Sindhu: 9
Srikanth Kidambi: 10
Chetan Anand: 10
Jwala Gutta/ Ashwini Ponappa: 13
Rupesh Kumar/ Sanave Thomas: 13
Aparna Popat: 16
Vimal Kumar: 19
Gurusai Dutt: 19
Arvind Bhat:20
Ajay Jayaram: 21, just misses top 20.
Anup Shridhar: 24
I could not find the highest rankings of Syed Modi while Madhumita Bisht reached a highest of 28 only.

HS Prannoy may break into top 20 soon, currently at 24.
Needs to be updated for rankings since then.
