Andy Murray is No. One – level 2

15-11-2016 07:00

Andy Murray is a British tennis player. His competitor injured his leg, so officials automatically gave Andy the title of number one tennis player in the world. Murray is the first British tennis player to be on top for singles rankings for tennis. He is also the oldest person at age 29 to be number one since 1974.

He will need to keep playing well to keep his title. Apart from his new title, he has two Olympic gold medals, also.

Difficult words: competitor (a person who plays against you), singles (playing alone), ranking (how good you are).
