KUALA LUMPUR: Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui made it to the top of the world rankings for the first time in their careers but they were not jumping for joy.

In the Badminton World Fede-ration (BWF) ranking list yesterday, Pei Tty-Eei Hui moved one rung up to replace China’s Olympic champions Du Jing-Yu Yang as the No. 1.Not there yet: Wong Pei Tty (left) and Chin Eei Hui replaced China’s Du Jing-Yu Yang as the top women’s pair in the world.

It was the first time in many years that China failed to occupy the top spot in the women’s doubles rankings.

Pei Tty felt that the ranking did not really reflect where they stood among the top pairs in the world.

“Honestly, the world No. 1 tag does not really bring great feelings in me. We are not the real world No. 1 women’s pair, yet,” she said.

“This is only possible because the Chinese pairs had skipped several recent tournaments. We will probably be there briefly.”

Taiwanese Cheng Wen-hsing-Chien Yu-chin may take the top spot next week if they go all the way to win the ongoing Korean Open.

It was also a career high for women’s singles shuttler Julia Wong, moving up five rungs to 16th spot. Her previous best was at No. 18.

There were no major changes in the men’s rankings with Lee Chong Wei staying at number one in the singles and the pairs of Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong remaining among the top five.
