    It is extraordinary the way the whole season has switched. Novak Djokovic was in the ascendancy, but Andy Murray is  number one in ever way.

    He is dominant in the play, in aura, in the locker room and on the points table. No-one wants to play him, they would rather play Novak and shown why today.

    There has not been too much to warrant criticism for him this season. He lost in the second round of Miami and Indian Wells following the birth of baby Sophia. He said it gave him a better perspective on the world and this is a baby bounce.
