sport-tennisAndy Murray edged closer to taking the World Number One slot after beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6 (8-6) to take the the Vienna Open title.

If he wins next week’s Paris Master he will replace Novak Djokovic at the top of the tennis rankings, unless the Serbian also reaches the final.

Frenchman Tsonga has beaten Murray only twice in their previous 15 meetings.
