European Men’s and Women’s Team Championships ended last week in Kazan, adding important points to the rankings of European players. 

Anastasia Chervyakova/Olga Morozova (Russia) moved one spot up on this week’s women’s doubles world ranking list and are currently world no. 24. 

-It’s not the highest results for us, so it’s ok. It feels great to be in top 25 in the world. We must work harder and play more tournaments to be in top 20 or top 15, Morozova tells Badminton Europe and adds:

-We’re going to play three tournaments before the European Championship. The goal is to compete with the world class pairs and show our best performance.

Career-best results

Rasmus Gemke (Denmark) can celebrate his career-best ranking position as no. 35 on men’s singles world ranking list. He was performing in Kazan in European Men’s and Women’s Team Championships, bringing two victories to Danish Men’s National Team and getting 3464.2 points for himself.

Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen stayed on position no. 10 for the last two weeks and this week they moved one spot up and are no. 9 on men’s doubles world ranking list. 

Mia Blichfeldt (Denmark) climbed three spots to occupy position no. 28 which is a career best result for her. Russia’s Evgeniya Kosetskaya (Russia) moved two spots and currently occupies position no. 32 on women’s singles world ranking list.

Brice Leverdez (France) climbed one spot occupying position no. 23 on men’s singles world ranking list. He played four matches in the Europeans, winning the three of them. He is currently just one spot away from his career-best result.
