World Champion Viktor Axelsen (Denmark) remains unshaken as he leads the men’s singles ranking list for the fifth consecutive week. Spain’s Carolina Marin is no. 4 on the women’s world ranking list for the fourth consecutive week. 

There is a new position for Kirsty Gilmour (Scotland) as she slowly and steadily climbs up the womne’s singles ranking list occupying position no. 20 this week.

Vladimir Ivanov and Ivan Sozonov are back to their highest ranking. The Russian duo is no. 9 on the Men’s doubles ranking list. 


New rankings after Dutch Open
After successful three rounds at Dutch Open, Hans-Kristian Vittinghus has climbed one position up and is now no. 25. The Dane lost his quarterfinal match against Japanese Kento Momota who eventually won the tournament. 

Momota’s rival in the semifinals - Mark Caljouw (The Netherlands) has reached his career-high ranking as he is occupying the 43rd place on the men’s singles ranking.
