Brice Leverdez has reached his career-best result of no. 19 on the men’s singles world ranking list. He is three spots up compared to last week. 

-Top 20 is a step forward for me. I know I have few more steps to climb to reach my goals but it’s nice to reach this ranking at the moment. I worked for it and it’s just the outcome of the hard work, Leverdez tells Badminton Europe.

After reaching into the quarterfinals in Malaysia Open and later winning China’s Chen Long in Indonesia Open in the first round, Leverdez will play in Thailand Open next week. Talking about his goals on ranking, Leverdez says:

-The next step for me would be to reach top 15 by the end of this year.
