Murray number one after Raonic withdraws

Andy Murray has replaced Novak Djokovic as world number one after Milos Raonic withdrew from Saturday's scheduled Paris Masters semi-final due to injury.

Murray would have taken over the top spot in the rankings for the first time in his career with a victory against the Canadian, but the Briton did not have to set foot on court in order to achieve that feat.

Djokovic's quarter-final defeat to Marin Cilic on Friday gave Murray the opportunity to leapfrog him this week and the Serbian now drops to number two.
