Thai Badminton Pair Tops International Ranking
Sudket Prapakamol and Saralee Thungthongkam have become the first mixed-doubles pairing from Thailand in the past 10 years to top the International Badminton Federation (BWF not IBF) world rankings.
The ranking secures them Bt320,000 a month from Siam Cement Group, badminton's main sponsor in this country.
Singles ace Boonsak Ponsana rose to eight after clinching the Singapore Open Super Series title. He receives a sponsor's bonus of Bt1,200,000 and an increase in his monthly payment to Bt40,000.
