    According to announcement that published on 21 December 2020, the World Ranking will be re-opened on 2 February 2021 after the conclusion of Asian Leg in Bangkok => https://corporate.bwfbadminton.com/news-single/2020/12/21/tournament-calendar-2021/

    Re-Opening BWF World Rankings

    The BWF World Rankings will reopen following the HSBC BWF World Tour Finals 2020 being hosted in Week 4 2021. The calculation of the next BWF World Rankings list will be announced on Tuesday 2 February 2021, based on the following principles:
    • Tournaments already included in the BWF World Rankings list as of 17 March 2020 will remain.
    • Tournaments counting for the BWF World Rankings hosted after 17 March 2020 will be added to the BWF World Rankings list being calculated for 2 February 2021.
    • Tournaments sanctioned as world ranking tournaments going forward after 2 February 2021 will be added weekly.
    • No tournaments already included in the BWF World Rankings from 17 March 2020 will be dropped off the rankings until a date to be announced.
    • The BWF World Rankings will be in a transition period and will consist of tournaments from more than 52 weeks. The exact drop-off methodology to reestablish a 52-week World Rankings list is still to be determined and will be announced in due course, but with advance notification.
    The BWF World Rankings from 2 February 2021 will thereafter be used for M&Q and seeding.

    Here's WR latest update after quite long time freezed by BWF since 17th March 2020.

    *Kento Momota stays on top with huge margin distancing him from the #2 Viktor Axelsen. Wang Tzu Wei moves up 4 rungs to #9.

    Bad move from BWF to use 2x the same tournaments , especially the WTF points where only top players can play and definitely will have more chance for higher points like LeeWang & AhsanHendra.

    agree with you, use 2 times the same tournaments is a very bad move, really not fair.

    Counting same tournament twice from two editions.

    Interesting to notice latest BWF World Ranking (30/03/2021) where there're several tournaments in 2019 have been removed from calculation (Orleans Masters, IND, MAS, SGP and Continental Championships) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/ranking/ranking.aspx?rid=70

    oh gosh Momota in deep trouble, many points and tournaments to defend, with Axelsen doesnt need to defend anything plus already a very good 2021. Looks like Axelsen will end WR1 for year 2021.

    Same with Minions & ZhengHuang. Hit the CHN players hard because they didnt participate 4 tournaments this year.

    BWF getting crazier and crazier. Tt was like telling the NT to play in pandemic. They didnt play TO and now the 4 tournaments got removed. oh well.
