It’s been little under a month since Andy Murray made history by securing his position as the world number one in men’s singles tennis.
Claiming the title from his rival Novak Djokovic, he became the first British player to reach the top-spot since computerised rankings began in 1973.
On November 6th he celebrated the achievement by winning the Paris Masters for the first time in his career.
Murray has brought much attention to Scottish Tennis and has had a considerable effect on the uptake in the sport.
Tennis Scotland said:
“Since Andy broke into the top 10 of world rankings in 2007, the number of people playing tennis in venues and clubs across Scotland has risen from around 30,000 to almost 54,000.”
