Murray up to second in ATP rankings

Andy Murray gained some consolation for his straight sets defeat to Novak Djokovic in the Paris Masters final on Sunday by regaining the world No.2 spot.

The Scot was edged for second place by Roger Federer last week, but his run into the Paris final, coupled with Federer’s early loss to John Isner, reversed the positions.

That could be significant for Murray at next week’s ATP World Tour Finals in London as he could expect an easier draw for the group stages.

Already the two-time major tournament champion has his end-of-season sights firmly set on Britain’s Davis Cup final against Belgium in Ghent from November 27-29.

Australia’s Bernard Tomic remains in 18th spot on the top-20 list.
