Andy Murray took Novak Djokovic's China Open crown at the weekend, but that's not all that the Scot is after as he closes in on the Serb's number one ranking.The second-ranked Scot is looking to close the points gap to Djokovic and cap a career-best season by topping the rankings for the first time.The Serb also won in Shanghai last year -- another trophy in what was one of the best seasons in tennis history -- and so now has to defend those ranking points whereas Murray only has points to bank to further reduce the 3,005-point gap to Djokovic.As Murray aims to become the first British man to reach number one, he is already writing history with Johanna Konta.
