ATP World Tour Finals: Murray beats Djokovic to remain world number one

Andy Murray marked the end of his finest season in tennis in fitting fashion as he beat Novak Djokovic to retain world number one spot and seal his first ATP World Tour Finals crown.

The Brit had twice come through marathon matches this week to reach the final, while Djokovic was comparatively fresher having dropped just two games swatting aside Kei Nishikori in the semi.

The stop ranking would return to Djokovic with defeat but Murray set aside fears over his weariness to clinch a 6-3, 6-4 victory over an uncharacteristically error-prone Djokovic in London.

The world number one sweated through three hours and 38 minutes against Milos Raonic in Saturday’s last-four encounter, but needed just over 90 minutes to see off Djokovic.
