The ranking closes in apr of 2020 ....  if she does well in two or three major tournaments she can easily come into top 16 and qualify ..... i personally feel she will

There are two ranking for Tokyo on the BWF website:
1) Notional ranking

2) World ranking

 

In the second ranking, Saina Nehwal is at No 30

 

Which one do we follow?

I am updating the people close to qualification and in qualification position. Saina is in no position to qualify unless she has outstanding 2020 season.

I think that what you are saying may be an overstatement , the points currently in  BWF race to olympic rating is all completely jumbled as some players have 4 tournaments they have played till now and some have upto 10 so making sense of the ranking is incorrect , Saina has played only 4 and her ranking is low ( and comparing her score with players who have players 7-8 does not make any sense ).......... If you see number 3 currently is Michelle Li and Tai is 9 ( Li gets that rank as she has played 8 tournaments and Tai only 4 ) so these ranks would dramatically change when all players cross 10 and are even ........

Lets not look into those rankings now. It still doesn't reflect true form as hardly any top tournaments were played during the ranking period. The only major tournaments played were Sudirman Cup, Indonesia Open (Super 1000), Japan Open (Super 750).

A couple of key tournaments like China Open (Super 1000), Korea Open (Super 500) and Denmark Open (Super 750) coming in the next two months and the weightage of points is more. We will get a fair picture by December end when the 2019 season ends

Unless she misses a significant portion of the remaining season due to injury, she will qualify easily. In fact, I am pretty sure she would be seeded among top 8 at Olympics.

It seems Badminton is a hopeless case. We will have to shift focus to Wrestling and Hockey for this month.

Are you kidding me? Sindhu just won WS title at World Championships. Sai Praneeth won Bronze. Satwik/Chirag won Thailand Open just last month. We had bad 12-18 months in Badminton but past 1 month has been amazing.
