Mark Petchey believes becoming world No 1 marks Andy Murrays finest achievement in tennis. Zaza Pachulia Jersey . Murrays march to the final of the Paris Masters, coupled with Novak Djokovics quarter-final exit to Marin Cilic, means the 29-year-old will take over from the Serb at the top of the world rankings on Monday.And Sky Sports tennis expert Petchey, who coached Murray during the early stages of the Scots career, says the three-time Grand Slam winner is finally being rewarded for years of hard work.  Andy Murray says hes proud after becoming the world number one, replacing Novak Djokovic after 122 weeks For me its his greatest ever achievement, Petchey told Sky Sports News HQ. Its a lifetime of work for his finest hour. There is so much that goes into being world No 1 anyway, but also at this stage of his career at 29, the fact he has just been behind Novak, Roger [Federer] and Rafa [Nadal] throughout the course of his career, to finally get to the summit of mens tennis underlines just how much Andy is willing to sacrifice and persevere and be patient. Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 13, 2016, 12:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass All those ingredients go in, which is why for me it is his greatest achievement.Petchey is confident Murray will not rest now he is at the summit.The one thing about Andy is he will never relax, Petchey added. He always wants to get better and better and thats why hes become such a great champion.  Murray won Wimbledon for a second time in the summer Speaking to his coach Jamie Delgado, after Wimbledon they went down to the Nadal Academy and his team were just blown away by the work ethic that he put into the training sessions there, after winning Wimbledon. That is the reason why this week we see him as world No 1, because there was no let down, he went straight back and worked.Petchey also believes the duel between Murray and Djokovic ensures an exciting end to the season, with both players battling to finish the year as the worlds best player. Novak Djokovic says Andy Murray deserves to become the world number one after raising his level in the last year The fact that the world No 1 is on the line for the World Tour finals is great and will be a spur for both players to produce their best tennis in the next couple of weeks, Petchey added. For Andy, to finish the year as world No 1 is a big deal. Lots of players have won a Grand Slam but failed to get to get No 1 at any stage of their career; there are even fewer players that have ended up year-end No 1 and for Andy to be able to achieve that will be enough of a drive for him continue this fantastic run. Murrays next aim is to end the year as world No 1 When he was 18, he didnt love the hard work. He always loved to play tennis, but now, he loves to work hard physically. He would have had a good career, he was that talented, but he wouldnt have become unique without investing in that hard work and growing on a daily basis to love it. Now hes arguably the hardest worker mens tennis has ever seen.Check our game-by-game updates from Andy Murray v John Isner from the ATP Paris Masters final and then follow his progress at the ATP World Tour Finals from London skysports.com/tennis, our app for mobile devices and iPad and our Twitter account @skysportstennis.

Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. http://www.themavericksshop.us/justin-anderson-mavericks-jersey/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.STANFORD, Calif. -- Tyler Gaffney ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns, Anthony Wilkerson added 68 yards and another score, and No. 5 Stanford started strong in a 42-28 victory over No. 23 Arizona State on Saturday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams. The defending conference champions controlled every facet of the game to turn the only matchup between ranked opponents this week into a 29-0 halftime lead. The Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) scored in the air and on the ground, forced two turnovers, blocked two punts, tallied 10 tackles for loss and recorded three sacks. Taylor Kelly threw for 367 yards, including three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, and Jaelen Strong caught 12 passes for 168 yards and a score in an otherwise disappointing showing for the Sun Devils (2-1, 0-1). Arizona State beat Big Ten champion Wisconsin in a controversial finish last week in the desert. Stanford showed more diversity on both sides of the ball than it had in solid, but not overwhelming, victories against San Jose State and Army. The Cardinals funky formations and disguised defences had the Sun Devils dazed and dizzy, again displaying the disparity between the past four league champions -- Stanford and Oregon -- and everybody else. Kevin Hogan completed 11 of 17 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns to Ty Montgomery to lift Stanford to its 11th straight victory. Montgomery, held without a touchdown last season after being slowed by a nagging knee injury, finished with four catches for 62 yards. He has at least one touchdown in every game. Cardinal contributions came from all over. Josh Mauro, making his first career start in place of injured defensive end Henry Anderson, backed off his pass rush and stuck his left hand out to corral Kellys pass for an interception. The play extended Stanfords streak of forcing a turnover to 27 games -- the longest in the country -- and set up Montgomerys 17-yard touchdown catch. Gaffney ran for a short TD after Devon Cajustes diving, 34-yard reception. Dirk Nowitzki Mavericks Jersey. Wilkerson scampered 13 yards for another score, and Montgomery sliced up the middle for an easy 30-yard touchdown. The Cardinal capped off the one-sided start when Blake Lueders blocked his man into the punter. The ball deflected into the end zone and was kicked out for a safety to give Stanford a 29-0 halftime lead. Ben Gardner blocked a surprise punt by Kelly, and Gaffney followed with a 16-yard TD run to give Stanford a 39-7 lead late in the third quarter. The worst news of the game for Stanford came when officials ejected safety Ed Reynolds for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Kelly in the fourth quarter. Under the new targeting rule, Reynolds could miss the first half of the next game at Washington State unless the conference overturns the call. Kelly threw touchdown passes to Chris Coyle (45 yards), Strong (7 yards) and Marion Grice (6 yards) in the fourth quarter to make the game look closer than it was. Kelly completed 30 of 55 passes and threw an interception in a desperation heave to the end zone on the final play. The late rally put a charge into Cardinal coach David Shaw, who put Hogan and the offensive starters back in the game. But Arizona State wasted its best chances to seize momentum earlier. Grices 2-yard TD run finished off a 1:42 drive to open the second half. Then Robert Nelson intercepted a pass from Hogan to give the Sun Devils the ball at Stanfords 34, but the Sun Devils turned it over when Grice dropped a pass on fourth down. The loss was another humbling setback for an Arizona State program trying to take the next step under second-year coach Todd Graham. The Sun Devils began this season by blowing out Football Championship Subdivision opponent Sacramento State and then scored one of the programs biggest victories in recent years last Saturday night in a 32-30 victory over then-No. 20 Wisconsin that ended with Pac-12 officials getting publicly reprimanded. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
