Milan Ludik (Czech Republic) has climbed one spot up to occupy position no. 89 on the men's singles world ranking list.  The COE player was world no. 105 two weeks ago:

-I am happy that my ranking is slowly improving. I hope this is just the next step, Milan tells Badminton Europe.

With the goal of qualifying for the European Games in 2019, Milan is aiming to have a good position on the men’s singles world ranking list before the qualifications for Tokyo 2020 start. He is representing Czech Republic in this week’s European Mixed Team Championships Qualifications, where his team is facing Poland, Lithuania and Spain. 

-I am very proud to represent Czech Republic in the Europeans. We are a good team and we want to create some upsets, - Milan tells Badminton Europe.

Another COE player Felix Burestedt (Sweden) has reached his career-best result of no. 94. 
Other changes

Denmark’s Rasmus Gemke, Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus, Jan O Jorgensen and Kim Bruun have all climbed one spot up on the men’s singles world ranking list, standing on positions no. 22, 26, 27 and 76 respectively. 

Luis Enrique Penalver (Spain) has moved seven spots up to occupy position no. 7. Raul Must (Estonia) is following him on position no. 82.
