Andy Murray officially became the 26th player to reach the ATP No. 1 ranking this morning, after the rankings were released.
Murray leads by just 405 points over Novak Djokovic. The ATP Finals begins in a week where the Serb will have a chance to regain the top spot. The Scot also has 275 Davis Cup ranking points which drop on November 28.
“It might only be for one week,” Murray said. “So I might as well try and enjoy it, because I could lose it at the Tour Finals and never be there again. So I was really happy about that and hopefully will feel the same way going into London, as well. I’m sure I will, because you’re competing against the best players in front of a big crowd there.”
