Andy Mu?rray: #1

31.10.2016 09:50 Leonid_Poroshin

Andy Murray is within striking distance of becoming the men's world No. 1.
The 29-year-old has won Wimbledon and an Olympic gold medal among seven titles this season, with victory at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday putting him potentially a week away from toppling Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic has topped the rankings since July 2014 but a dip in form, coupled with Murray's superb results, has put the Serbian's reign in jeopardy.
If Murray wins in Paris in the week ahead, then he will take over at the rankings summit providing Djokovic does not reach the final.
Here's how Murray can overtake Djokovic:
THE RANKINGS AS THEY STAND
Djokovic: 12,900 points
Murray: 10,985

The regular tour comes to an end with the final Masters event in Paris, starting on Monday, with Djokovic defending his title and 1,000 ranking points.
He beat Murray in last year's final, with the Scot earning 600 points.
If Murray were to enjoy another impressive week in the French capital and lift the trophy next Sunday, he would gain an additional extra 400 points.
Should Djokovic only reach the semifinals, he would drop 640 points.
How the points tot up if Murray wins in Paris and Djokovic reaches the semi-final:
Djokovic: 12,260,
Murray: 11,385

On Monday, November 7, Djokovic will lose the 1,300 points he amassed for winning the ATP World Tour Finals last November in London, ahead of the start of that tournament on the following Sunday.
And that could be the trigger point for Murray to overtake him.
Murray, who has consistently struggled at the World Tour Finals, won only won match there last year so drops just 200 points.
How it would stand after last season's World Tour Finals points are taken off -- if Murray wins in Paris and Djokovic reaches the semi-finals:
Murray: 11,185
Djokovic: 10,960
