Andy Murray overtakes Soderling to regain fourth place

London: Andy Murray will finish the year as world number four after regaining the spot from Sweden’s Robin Soderling Monday.

Murray, who this season won the Shanghai and Toronto Masters events and reached the Australian open final, regained fourth spot after reaching the semi-finals of the season-ending ATP World Tour finals last week.

The 23-year-old slipped to fifth place two weeks ago after Soderling’s victory in the Paris Masters.

Murray and Soderling were the only movers in the rankings, with Spain’s Rafa Nadal, Switzerland’s Roger Federer and Serbia’s Novak Djokovic an unchanged top three.
