- Novak Djokovic admits that Andy Murray's dramatic last-gasp assault on his world number one ranking has rejuvenated a season which was limping into mediocrity for the 12-time major winner. Djokovic has suffered a worrying dip in form since winning his first French Open and completing the career Grand Slam in June. But as the 29-year-old prepares to defend the Paris Masters title he has won for the past three years, he insists Murray's charge for the top has provided the fresh impetus he needs. "It makes me want to go on court and fight for every point because there is something to win at the end," Djokovic said.
