One-derful for Murray.
Byline: Alan Selby
BRITISH tennis ace Andy Murray has become World No1 for the first time.
He reached the top after injured Canadian star Milos Raonic pulled out of their semi-final at the Paris Masters yesterday.
That guaranteed Murray enough points to leapfrog Serbian Novak Djokovic, who was No1 for 122 weeks.
Modest Murray - who plays John Isner in the final today - had said before Raonic's shock withdrawal: "I'm happy, it's been a great few months for me."
At 29 years and 174 days, the Scot is the oldest first time No1 for 42 years.
He won Wimbledon and the Olympics titles in the summer - after becoming a dad for the first time.
Tennis legend Martina Navratilova led tributes, tweeting: "Congratulations for reaching the pinnacle of our sport - #No1. That's not a hashtag - that is #1."
