Murray Targets Top Spot
Andy Murray has quickly turned his attentions to Novak Djokovic's top ranking after climbing to number two in the world with victory at the Sony Open last weekend.
The Scot was made to work hard for his second Miami title by David Ferrer, who had a match point in the deciding set. Murray saved it on his way to a 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-1) win and his ninth Masters title.
The tournament success saw Murray leapfrog Roger Federer in the world rankings, though he is still some way behind six-time Grand Slam champion, Djokovic.
Murray will not let the distance to his great rival stop him as he looks to continue his impressive start to 2013.
"For me it doesn't change a huge amount, but the fact that I'm moving up the rankings is a good sign," the 25-year-old told tennis betting news pundits.
