BELGRADE – After all the battles and hard graft chasing the world number one spot, Briton Andy Murray arrived there without hitting a ball on Saturday as Milos Raonic pulled out of their Paris Masters semi-final due to a leg injury, Reuters reported.

The triple grand slam winner, who will take over from Serb Novak Djokovic at the top when the rankings are updated on Monday, still went out on center court for a practice session in front of a bemused crowd.

“I never thought I’d be No. 1 in the world and never, never imagined that was something that was going to happen,” Murray told a news conference.
