  1. Post update

    Shanghai, Paris, London.

    By the time that little is done and the season is out, Andy Murray could, could, have toppled the previously untouchable Novak Djokovic.

    Plenty to look forward to. But that is our lot for now. See you soon.

  3. Murray wins China Open

    Grigor Dimitrov says that Andy Murray is one of the toughest players out there, before doing his diplomatic best as he thanks the sponsors, the ball kids and the crowd.

  4. Murray wins China Open

    Andy Murray hoists aloft an over-sized trophy that looks like the sort of thing that you would win on Mario Kart.

    All shiny gold laurel leaves on top of a chunky base.

    Time for the post-match chat.

  5. Murray noses in toward Djoko

    That result nibbles away a little more of Novak Djokovic's yawning great lead at the top of the rankings.

    The Serb is now 3695 points ahead of Murray in the ladder.

  6. Game, set and match Murray

    Murray 6-4 7-6 (7-2) Dimitrov

    The fifth title of his year, the 40th of his career and it never really looked in doubt.

    Grigor Dimitrov had his moments, but Andy Murray is more consistent, more accurate and more used to seeing out the pointy end of tournaments.

  7. Four championship points

    *Murray 6-4 6-6 (6-2) Dimitrov

  8. Tie-break

    *Murray 6-4 6-6 (4-2) Dimitrov

    Grigor Dimitrov presses the net and takes back one of the two mini-breaks before going for a sip of isotonic.

  9. Tie-break

    *Murray 6-4 6-6 (4-1) Dimitrov

    Murray takes the first point against the head to move a mini-break up. 1-0.

    Dimitrov snatches it back with a canny bit of volley and scurry in the second game. 1-1.

    Murray holds firm in the third point. 2-1.

    And Dimitrov frames a horrible forehand high into the rafter to move Murray a mini-break back up once more. 3-1.

    Dimitrov wide on the next. He is 4-1 and a double mini-break down. 

    Two Murray serves to come...

  10. Murray holds, tie-break

    Murray 6-4 6-6 *Dimitrov

    Andy Murray stops the rot to take us into tie-break.

    Manuel Pellegrini narrows his eyes in the crowd. The former Manchester City man is wearing a beige overcoat.

    Not quite a parka, but stick a bit of faux fur around the hood and it wouldn't be far off.

  11. Post update

    *Murray 6-4 5-6 Dimitrov

    Grigor Dimitrov has hi-jacked this match.

    The Bulgarian whips the game from under Andy Murray to love. That is 11 straight points to Dimitrov without answer.

    Murray in a tailspin. He needs to yank back on the joystick hard in the next game. The Scot is serving to stay in the second set.

  12. Dimitrov breaks

    Murray 6-4 5-5 *Dimitrov

    An eyesore of a game topped off with a horror show of a shot.

    Andy Murray skips forward to meet a routine drive volley and bashes his shot well wide to allow Grigor Dimitrov back into the match.

    Murray is going to be furious with himself.

    This match is now being played in territory that should have been out of bounds to Dimitrov.

  13. Three break points Dimitrov

    *Murray 6-4 5-4 Dimitrov

    A mammoth first point of the game. Back and forth they trade, Murray slicing, Dimitrov pounding, vice-versa, topsy-turvy, until, with north of 30 strokes on the meter, Murray pumps just long. 0-15.

    Dimitrov nibbles off the next point as well and suddenly at 0-30, the crowd sense that their afternoon's entertainment could be extended.

    Murray clumps long! 0-40 and three break points to Dimitrov! 

  14. Post update

    *Murray 6-4 5-4 Dimitrov

    Oh Grigor.

    A leaping Dimitrov hot-dogs an instant reply back at Andy Murray and the surprised Scot cannot claw it back.

    Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini - now in charge of Hebei Good Fortune in the Chinese Super League- in the crowd and enjoyed that bit of improv.

     Dimitrov holds serve.

    But Murray is about to tee off for the title.

  15. Post update

    Murray 6-4 5-3 *Dimitrov

    Andy Murray's serve is still rock-solid. He is marching towards victory with the certainty of a tennis-ing T1000.

  16. Post update

    *Murray 6-4 4-3 Dimitrov

    Grigor Dimitrov keeps his cards on the table. He will have to unpick the Andy Murray serve fairly sharpish if he is to keep this match out on court much longer though.

  17. Post update

    Murray 6-4 4-2 *Dimitrov

    Andy Murray's first serve percentage was as low as a limbo-ing adder in the first set.

    He landed with only 30% of his first serves in the opener.

    That stat has doubles to around 60% so far in the second and it is keeping Dimitrov at bay.

  18. Murray breaks

    *Murray 6-4 3-2 Dimitrov

    There is brave. There is bold. And then there is downright reckless.

    Grigor Dimitrov - break point down - swats a death-or-glory forehand for the paint.

    It was too early in the rally though. Andy Murray was well set on the baseline and would have scraped back even if he had landed.

    As it was he was long. And Murray is a break to the good in the second.

    Three straight service holds and the title is his. Dimitrov has forced one break point the whole match so far.

  19. Dimitrov taken to deuce

    Murray 6-4 2-2 *Dimitrov

    Andy Murray duffs a cross-court backhand bunt just wide as Grigor Dimitrov comes in at 30-30.

    But the Bulgarian sprays an inside-out forehand wide as he attempts to seal the deal on the next point.

    Deuce-town once more.
