Last week’s All England Open had some good results for European players and this week’s BWF world ranking list presents the new ranking positions for them. 

Jacco Arends/Selena Piek (Netherlands) climbed one spot up on the mixed doubles world ranking list, currently occupying position no. 23.

-It feels great coming closer to the world top 10 but we also realize that we still have a long way to go as the last steps up are always the toughest, Selena Piek tells Badminton Europe adding:

-Therefore our focus doesn’t necessarily lie on our world ranking, more on improving our level and being more consistent playing on that higher level.

Higher positions for doubles

It’s double celebration for Jacco Arends as he moved three spots up on the men’s doubles world ranking list with his partner Ruben Jille, occupying position no. 42. 

Denmark’s Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen moved one step closer to top 10. They are currently on position no. 11. Their compatriots Mathias Christiansen/Christinna Pedersen climbed four spots up to occupy position no. 12 on the mixed doubles world ranking list.

England’s Marcus Ellis/Chris Langridge advanced three spots to become world no. 24. In addition, Marcus Ellis moved seven spots up to occupy position no. 22 on the mixed doubles world ranking list with his partner Lauren Smith.

Singles players doing well

Jan O Jorgensen (Denmark) continues his successful comeback as he climbed 24 spots up on the men’s singles world ranking list. Currently he occupies position no. 75.

Last week’s KaBal International Karvina 2018 winner Victor Svendsen (Denmark) moved six spots to occupy position no. 69.

Mia Blichfeldt (Denmark) can celebrate her career-best result as she climbed nine spots up to occupy position no. 25 on the women’s singles world ranking list.
