London: Having won the first Grand Slam of his career after beating Novak Djokovic in the US Open final, Britain’s Andy Murray is on cloud nine. He has set his sights on becoming World Number One soon but has played down talks of receiving knighthood.

“A lot of my friends have been messaging me about that. I think it should take more than just one or two good tournaments to deserve something like that. It would be a bit rash,” he was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

However, the Scot knows reaching the top of the rankings won’t be piece of cake. “You`ve got to be consistent throughout the year, it`s not just about winning a Grand Slam or an Olympics. Roger, Rafa and Novak have done consistency incredibly well and made it difficult for anyone else,” he added.
