Murray sets for the top ahead Novak Djokovic

Scottish professional tennis player, Andy Murray now has the chance at the US Open to do what just three months ago seemed unthinkable: dethrone Novak Djokovic from first place in the Race.
When Djokovic defeated Murray in the Roland Garros final on June 5, the Serb held a 3,225-point lead in the Race.
Murray has now cut that to 1,215 points after reaching the final of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati this past Sunday.novak-djokovic-andy-murray-madrid
At the US Open, Murray is vying to become just the fourth player in the Open Era – Laver (’69), Federer (’06-‘07, ’09) and Djokovic (’15) – to reach all four major finals in the same year.
Should Murray win the title he will go to first place in the Race unless Djokovic is the man he beats in the final.
If Murray and Djokovic meet for the third time (Australian Open, Roland Garros) in a Grand Slam final this year, Djokovic will still lead the Race by 415 points even if Murray wins the final.
