Andy Murray confirmed Men’s Tennis World No. 1
Andy Murray has been confirmed as the men’s tennis world No.1 after Milos Raonic withdrew from Paris Masters semi-final, according to Metro Sports News.
Milos Raonic was due to take on the big-serving Canadian, the man he defeated earlier this year in the Wimbledon final, but the 25-year-old was forced to pull out after he tore his right quad.
Murray will now face John Isner in Sunday’s showpiece after the giant American defeated Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-3.
Novak Djokovic needed to reach the final to retain the top spot but lost 6-4 7-6 (7-2) to Cilic in the quarter-finals.
Murray has enjoyed a spectacularly successful season, claiming his second Wimbledon title and Olympic gold back in the summer.
The 29-year-old already has seven titles under his belt this year and will be an odds-on favourite to add another trophy to his collection in the French capital on Sunday.
