BWF Rankings: Indian shuttler Anupama Upadhyaya replaces Tasnim Mor to become Junior World No. 1


In the latest BWF Junior rankings, the youngster from Panchkula Upadhyaya became the new Junior World No. 1. The 17-year-old replaced fellow Indian Tasnim Mor from the top position. This year, the youngster had claimed junior international titles in Uganda and Poland.

The Panchkula player jumped two places to secure the pole position with 18.060 points from 18 tournaments. Upadhyaya is one of the four girls who figure in the Top 10 of the junior rankings.

Three other Indian female shuttlers in the Top 10 are Tasnim Mir (number 2) and two 14-year-olds — Anwesha Gowda (number 6) and Unnati Hooda (number 9). Overall, Anupama is only the sixth Indian shuttler to top the junior rankings.

In boys, Aditya Joshi (2014), Siril Verma (2016), Lakshya Sen (2017) had achieved the top position in the past, while 18-year-old Sankar Muthusamy Subramanian had become the World No. 1 last month. Anupama had recently cracked the senior women’s Top 100 ranking and is currently placed at World No. 63 spot.

A product of Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy, Anupama had an impressive run this year as she made it to the semifinals at the Syed Modi International Super 300 in January before entering the quarterfinals of Orleans Open Super 100 event.

The Indian is currently preparing for the Junior World Championships scheduled to be held in Santander, Spain from October 17 to 31.
