Murray aiming to usurp Federer’s World No.3 spot
London: British tennis star and world number four Andy Murray has set his sights on usurping Roger Federer’s world No 3 ranking after easing to his 19th career title in the final of the Thailand Open on Sunday.
Murray beat finalist Donald Young 6-2 6-0 in Bangkok.
Murray made his first ATP Tour final at this tournament six years ago, when he was beaten in straight sets by Federer, and, after picking up his latest trophy, he has the Swiss very much in his sights.
"Roger always plays very well on the European indoor courts, so I`m sure I’m going to have to win a lot more matches if I want to finish as No 3," a leading daily quoted Murray, as saying.
