Yep. #2s don't lose in the first round (irrespective of draw).

Small fluctuations are okay as long as she stays consistently top-4 or top-6 say. And, wins some big matches and big tournaments.

Newspaper reports in Singapore have been referring to Sindhi as #5 and Marin as #2. Presumably that's why they met as early as the QF here.

Yes, Sindhu was #2 only for a week after India superseries title. She fell back to #5 after that. I this a fair ranking for her. Currently Marin and the Taiwanese Tai look the top 2 on current form with Sindhu somewhere between 3 and 6.

Agree with sameer.

There is a clear top 2 in Tai-tzu Ying who is a dominant #1 and won her 5th successive tournament in Singapore (she skipped India SS) and Carolina Marin who is the current World and Olympic champion.

Sindhu is in the next group with Sung-ji Hyun, Akane Yamaguchi and Ratchanok Inatchon.

With her Korea super series title points updated, Sindhu is back to being world #2 in the rankings.

Hopefully, she will be #1 soon.

thanks for the link. did you see the smash from Sindhu when she was leading 19-16 in the 3rd set?!

Tall, lithe and powerful, she is here to stay and is the single biggest threat to chinese domination in women's badminton; definitely a future WR #1 and dare I say 2016 Olympic GOLD medalist! Just stick with Gopi for the next 4 years and then do whatever you want after that!!
A blast from the past. So, it was close. Silver.

Just watched PV Sindhu play superbly to win the first game 15-11 against Sung-ji Hyun in the PBL. Sindhu is always a treat to watch in action!
