Forget the latest addition to Andy Murray's creaking trophy cabinet, the $2.4-million check and the adulation of a nation. The most significant upshot of Murray's ATP World Tour Finals victory over Novak Djokovic is the aura it brings.Murray duly won 6-3, 6-4 and, despite a late Djokovic fightback, played like he knew the outcome was never in doubt.Murray, 29, is undefeated since September, has won 24 matches in succession and his win-loss record since losing to Djokovic in the French Open final is 53-3 .The iron-willed Murray is unlikely to relent.Former world No. 1 John McEnroe, another player who at his peak in the 1980s had opponents cowed before battle, said Murray will be well aware that aura, so long in the making, can vanish quickly.
