Andy Murray overtaken by Robin Soderling in rankings

Andy Murray has been pushed down to world number five after Robin Soderling's triumph at the Paris Masters.

Soderling's premier Masters Series title may mean that Murray does not end the year in the world's top four, something the British player will be anxious to avoid. With the Australian Open beginning just three weeks into the season in January there are precious few chances to gain ground on your rivals before it begins and without a top four seeding, Murray could face Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer as early as the quarter-finals.

It all adds a little extra something to the events at next week's ATP World Finals. Just 200 points separate Novak Djokovic, Soderling and Murray at 3-5 in the rankings and those places could very easily reverse if someone has a particularly good or bad week.

Murray is practising in London ahead of the tournament and he was looking to the positives after his run to the quarters in Paris.

 "It was a great week in Paris," he said. "I had three long matches, which is the best thing to take away from it, and there's good match fitness going into London.”

"I played a lot of serve-and-volley, which I hope I'll be able to use in London too. I also managed to turn a couple of matches around which weren't going my way."
