The Indian shuttlers had a decent year in 2015. In the women’s section Saina Nehwal had a brilliant run winning the Indian Open Super Series and Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold event in Lucknow. She reached the finals of All England Championships and World Badminton Championships in August. She also became the first Indian women to become the number 1 ranked player in the world. She also reached the finals of China Open in which she lost in the finals. Apart from that she lost in the quarter finals of the Asian Badminton Championship. She is number 2 in the world rankings currently.

PV Sindhu too had a disappointing year only winning the Macau Open title and reaching the finals of the premier Super Series tournament which is the Denmark Open. She has been struggling for form. She had injuries in the first part of the year but could not perform according to expectations.

In men’s singles category K Srikanth had a very disappointing tournament only winning the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold and reaching the finals of the Indonesian Grand Prix Gold. K Srikanth was not able to repeat his form what he did in 2014. He lost in the round robin stage at the BWF Super Series finals. He has slipped to number 9 in the world rankings. Ajay Jayaram also had reasonable performances in the year winning the Dutch Open Grand Prix Gold, reaching 3 semi finals and also reaching the finals of the BWF Korean Open Super Series event. 

In the women’s doubles Jwala Gutta/ Ashwini Ponappa won the Canada Open Grand Prix Gold event. She reached the quarter finals of BWF World badminton championships. Apart from that there was no notable performance from this top doubles pair.

In the men’s doubles the pair of Manu Attri/ Sumeeth reached 2 finals and won the Mexico City Grand Prix Gold which was their first title. Because of that performance both of them reached 17th ranking in the world.

It has been a good year for Indian badminton. With four months to go for Rio Olympics qualification Indian badminton can have the biggest badminton contingent in the Olympics. It will be a great achievement if the players can continue their good form in 2016.
