No pressure over ATP top ranking, Andy Murray says

Britain's Andy Murray returns the ball to Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych during their quarter-final match at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 indoor tournament in Paris, on November 4, 2016Andy Murray can depose Novak Djokovic as world number one on Saturday but the British star insists he won’t let the pressure of the historic occasion knock him off course. The 29-year-old Wimbledon and Olympic champion will take over top spot in the rankings if he defeats Canada’s Milos Raonic in the Paris Masters semi-finals. Earlier, 12-time major winner Djokovic had lost 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) to Croatia’s Marin Cilic, a defeat which looks likely to end the Serb’s 122-week reign on top of the ATP world rankings.
