The Surrey-based superstar could still be rated the world’s best as the season comes to a close. Tom Cann reports.
Andy Murray became Britain’s first ever tennis player to reach number one in the world, after Novak Djokovic resigned from the Paris Masters, leaving Murray able to win the tournament, and secure top spot from the Serbian, who had held the position since July 2014.
The Oxshott resident has had an amazing year, winning Olympic Gold and Wimbledon. He could also win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award in December as well, having won it once already.
Murray is now competing in the ATP world tour finals at the O2 in London, the tournament in which the top eight tennis players in the world take part. There are clearly no hard feelings between the two tennis giants, as there is now a video that features the pair and other players doing the Mannequin Challenge.
Murray progressed in the competition after he beat Kei Nishikori 6-7, 6-4, 6-4. He is one step closer to retaining his top spot.
Murray has been branded as Britain’s best ever sportsman, he is certainly the best ever British tennis player.
