Andy Murray is No. One – level 3
Andy Murray, the British tennis player, became number one in the world for the first time. This happened when his competitor, Raonic, dropped out of their match due to a leg injury and officials automatically granted Murray the title.
Murray is the first British tennis player to top the singles rankings for tennis, and at 29 years old, is the oldest person to become number one since 1974. However, he will need to continue to play well as the year-end number-one ranking proceeds. As well as this new title, he has two Olympic gold medals.
Difficult words: due to (because of), grant (give), singles (playing alone), ranking (standing), proceed (continue).
