TENNIS : ANDY MURRAY DETHRONES NOVAK DJOKOVIC AS WORLD NO. 1 !



TENNIS : ANDY MURRAY DETHRONES NOVAK DJOKOVIC AS WORLD NO. 1 !
The world of tennis will wake up Monday morning, with a new name on top of its helm.

Novak Djokovic is king, no more.

Andy Murray takes over as the new ruler.

After years of heartache and frustration, the 29-year-old Scot is finally on top of the world - for the first time in his career.

Andy Murray's ascent to World No.1 breaks Novak Djokovic's long running reign in tennis.

Djokovic had been the World No. 1, uninterrupted, since July of 2014, and had been the World No. 1, intermittent, for 221 Weeks, overall, since first becoming World No. 1 in 2011.

Andy Murray's long wait to become World No. 1, has lasted more than 7 years - a record in tennis - with him hanging fire as number 2.

The so-called Big Four in tennis - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and, Andy Murray, himself - had been dominating the sport for more than ten years, or so.

But Andy Murray is seemingly left behind, unable to break into the top - until now.

Though Andy Murray is a back-to-back Olympic Champion, and already has three Grand Slam Titles under his belt, it is still a far cry from Federer's 17 Grand Slam Titles, Nadal's 14, and Djokovic's 12.

And to think, this is Andy Murray's only first taste of being World No. 1.

While, needless to say, the other three had been all over it, countless times.

With age now seemingly catching up on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal - and probably Novak Djokovic - the Big Four could be fading away with time.

And so with Andy Murray.

Murray's break as new World No. 1 came as he reaches the Finals at the Paris Masters, this weekend.

He went past Miloc Raonic who withdrew from their Semi-Final encounter, Saturday.

Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, could have still retained his crown as World No. 1, should he reached the Paris Masters Finals - just like Andy Murray did.

He was, however, eliminated by Marin Cilic in the Quarter Finals, Friday.

The biggest question now for Andy Murray is: for how long could he hold on as World No.1 ?

How many more Grand Slams in his sight?

Years of defeat and pain, from his nemeses within the Big Four, had certainly toughened the toughest in him.

Bring it on, Andy!
