Tien Minh and Vu Thi Trang drop their position in the world badminton ranking.
Nguyen Tien Minh refused to participate in several scheduled champions in 2017 and mostly focused on the small tourneys for his passion. The biggest event Minh attended was SEA Games 29 with a bronze medal. He finished the year of 2017 by 55th position, a backward from the 42 ranking in the previous year.

However, these achievements were not enough to help Trang maintain her last ranking of 37. She dropped nine places to sit 46th in the world.
