World Tennis News: Murray Celebrates Becoming World Number One

What a year it’s been for British number one Andy Murray, first he won his second Wimbledon title then his second Olympic Gold medal in Rio and now he’s knocked Novak Djokovic off the top spot to become World Number One.


Murray celebrated his first day as world number one by winning his sixth ATP title of the year and his first Paris Masters title after beating unseeded John Isner from America 6-3, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4 in the final.

Tomorrow Murray will be officially confirmed as the new number one and will become the first British singles player to reach the top spot since the computerised rankings were introduced back in 1973.

Djokovic held the top spot for an impressive 122 weeks and has a chance to reclaim his position if he wins all his matches at the season-ending World Tour Finals in London next week.
