JawaPos.com – Indonesian men’s doubles Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto were thrown from the top five in the world to the world rankings of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) after being overtaken by Malaysian pair Aaron Chia/Soh Wooi Yik, quoted from BETWEEN.
In the latest BWF rankings for week 35 of the 2022 season, Tuesday, Aaron/Soh moved up one place after winning the 2022 BWF World Championships in Tokyo last weekend, swapping places with Fajar/Rian who had to settle for a bronze medal in Tokyo.< /p>
The top ranking for men’s doubles is still held by Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo even though both of them had to be eliminated in the last 16 of the 2022 World Championship.
The position of Marcus/Kevin is overshadowed by the Japanese pair Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi who are only 1,000 points adrift. Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan also did not move from third position despite being runner-up at the 2022 World Championship.
However, the 2022 world champions in other sectors fared differently. In the women’s singles sector, for example, Japanese badminton player Akane Yamaguchi, who became the world champion in Tokyo, had to drop to second place after being displaced by Taiwanese representative Tai Tzu Ying, who was stopped in the semifinals of the World Championships.
China’s mixed doubles Zheng Si Wei/Huang Ya Qiong remained in second place despite having just become world champions in 2022. Meanwhile, Thai pair Dechapol Puvaranukroh/Sapsiree Taerattanachai took first place.
The men’s singles sector is still dominated by Danish badminton player Viktor Axelsen. Axelsen’s win in Tokyo put him in top spot, nearly 12,000 points clear of second-placed Kento Momota in the men’s singles.
Indonesian representative Anthony Sinisuka Ginting has increased his ranking, which is in the top five in the world despite losing in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Championship to Axelsen.
Meanwhile, Jonatan Christie dropped to eighth place after being replaced by Loh Kean Yew of Singapore.
