The Shanghai Masters championship helps Murray take another step forward on the path to conquering the world number one position that belongs to Novak Djokovic.

The final match in Shanghai on Sunday evening was a match between two players who are considered to have a large difference in class, even though Agut just defeated Djokovic in the semi-finals.

But Murray played inconsistently in the first set.

A series of self-errors by Agut created conditions for Murray to get an early break at the beginning of the second set.

Regarding Murray’s chances of becoming number one in the ATP, BBC analyzed: “Murray is showing high form at the end of the year in Djokovic’s usual style.

Murray settled the final in just two sets.

Murray has won 23 consecutive sets since losing to Martin del Potro in the Davis Cup semi-finals.

If Murray wins both the tournament in Vienna and Paris, he will become the number one tennis player in the world in case Djokovic does not reach the final of the tournament in the French capital.`

Murray’s ATP score is now 10,485 while Djokovic is 12,900.

If Murray wins the Paris Masters, where he finished second last year, the Scot’s score will rise to 11,385.

Before the ATP World Tour Finals, players will have to return the scores they won in last year’s tournament.
