Murray, Wozniacki win big in Asia

Britain’s Andy Murray beat Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets to win the Shanghai Masters and edge closer to Novak Djokovic in the world rankings.

The Scot recovered from a stutter in the first set to win 7-6 (7-1) 6-1 against the Spanish world number 19. Bautista Agut beat Djokovic in the semi-finals, but Murray ultimately eased to his sixth title of the year.

Murray, 29, is 915 points behind the Serb for 2016, increasing his hopes of finishing the year as world number one. It is the third time he has won the Shanghai Masters, which gives him 1,000 ranking points.

Murray, who also won the China Open on 9 October, has now won his past 23 sets over the two tournaments and the recent Davis Cup tie with Argentina.



Caroline Wozniacki beat Kristina Mladenovic in three sets at the Hong Kong Open to win her second title of the season.

The fifth-seeded Dane stormed through the first set but lost the second on a tie-break before eventually clinching a 6-1 6-7 (4/7) 6-2 win in two hours and 40 minutes – a victory which puts her back in the world’s top 20.
