It was celebration for Britain’s Andy Murray as he rose to become world number one after beating American John Isner 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 to win his first Paris Masters title.
The victory over the American made Murray win his sixth ATP title of a memorable 2016.
The 29-year-old Scottish who also won a second Olympic gold at the Rio Olympic games, had also won a Wimbledon title on his way to the top of the rankings.
Murray will be officially confirmed as Britain’s first singles number one today, since the computerised rankings were adopted in the year 1973.
He now heads to the ending of season of World Tour Finals as top seed for the first time, but will have to contend with Novak Djokovic who has held the title for 122 weeks.
