International Tennis Scene
Well done Andy Murray in achieving the number one ranking with double victories over Novak Djokovic. It was also very pleasing to see Argentina lifting the Davis Cup, 3-2, for the first time thanks to double victories by Juan Martin Del Potro over Crotian players Ivo Karlovic and Marin Cilic. Federico Delbonis clinched victory in the final match by overcoming Ivo Karlovic.
