Andy Murray Claims Third Place In ATP World Rankings
11 Sep 2012
Scottish tennis player Andy Murray has beaten Serbian former #1 tennis player Novak Djokovic in the US Open, to claim the third spot in the ATP World Rankings.
It has been 76 years since a British tennis player has won the Grand Slam singles champion and an exciting time for British sports in general, with Andy Murray reaching the Wimbledon final and also winning an Olympic gold medal.
Andy Murray described his win as “emotional” and that he was “relieved to have won”.
Both players faced harsh weather conditions with a heavy wind enveloping the match. Andy Murray said of beating Novak Djokovic: “... he fights until the end of every match and I don't know how I managed to come through in the end."
The tennis match was fiercely fought with Murray taking the early advantage and leading 4-2. Andy Murray lost his concentration, but only for a moment, allowing Novak Djokovic to get to 5-5, and for a moment it looked like the Serbian would come back in the game.
After a lengthy battle, Andy Murray claimed the victory, winning 7-6 (12-10) 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2 at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
You can watch Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray at the World Tour Finals which are taking place at the O2 Arena, London 5th-12h November 2012.
