Murray closes in on Djokovic

Andy Murray’s third win on the bounce in Vienna lifted him up to 10 985 points in the latest ATP rankings published on Monday, and one win away from toppling Novak Djokovic at No 1.


Murray’s 6-3, 7-6 (8/6) defeat of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Austria was his third win of the month after picking up the China Open and Shanghai Masters.

If the 29-year-old Scot manages to extend his red-hot form into this week’s Paris Masters he will become No 1 with success at Bercy next Sunday if Djokovic fails to make the final.

The Olympic and Wimbledon champion can also take over the ATP summit if he reaches the final and the Serb loses before the semis in the French capital.
