Andy Murray’s charge towards the world number one ranking continued as he beat Frenchman Jo-wilfried Tsonga in the final to claim the Vienna open tennis title.
The 29-year-old Scot swept past Jo-wilfried Tsonga 6-3 and 7-6 in the final to earn his seventh title of the year. The Olympic and Wimbledon champion can take over the world number one ranking from Novak Djokovic if he wins next week’s Paris masters and the Serb fails to reach the final.
Murray took his recent run to 15 straight victories in which he has picked up the China open and shanghai masters titles as well. He now has 42 career titles and second in Vienna after also winning in 2014.
