Photo: AFP Andy Murray took Novak Djokovic's China Open crown at the weekend Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Outlet , but that's not all that the Scot is after as he closes in on the Serb's No.1 ranking.
The second-ranked Scot is looking to close the points gap to Djokovic and cap a -career-best season by topping the rankings for the first time.
Murray made a convincing start to that campaign in Beijing, storming through the tournament without dropping a set.
He beat Grigor Dimitrov to claim his fifth title of the year, and take him 1,000 points -closer to Djokovic's long-held No.1 spot.
"It's very positive leading into Shanghai [the Shanghai Masters], and hopefully I can finish the year strong Cheap Nike Air Max 95 Outlet ," Murray said in Beijing.
Djokovic wasn't in the -Chinese capital to defend his China Open crown, having pulled out with an elbow injury, but both are playing at this week's Shanghai Masters.
The Serb also won in -Shanghai last year - another trophy in what was one of the best -seasons in tennis history when he won 11 tournaments, including three major titles and six Masters 1,000 titles - and so now has to defend those ranking points whereas Murray only has points to bank to -further reduce the 3 Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Outlet ,005-point gap to Djokovic.
In a year that also saw him become a father for the first time, Murray bagged both his second Wimbledon crown and Olympic gold medal.
He also reached the final of the Australian and French Opens, but missed out on a second consecutive Davis Cup win when Great Britain lost to Argentina in the semifinals.
As Murray aims to become the first British man to reach No.1, he is already writing -history with Johanna Konta.
The 25-year-old Sydney-born Briton broke into the top 10 with her run to the final at her maiden appearance at the China Open - the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1984 to achieve that feat.
It is also the first time since computerized rankings were introduced that a British man and woman are ranked in the top 10 at the same time.
Konta is now in Hong Kong to try to cap a stunning rise over the last 15 months
from 146th to ninth with her first -appearance at the WTA Finals in Singapore, which features the season's top eight players.
"She finished last year extremely well and kind of showed that she had the potential to get there with the wins that she was having Cheap Nike Air Max Outlet ," Murray said of Konta.
"But it's not easy to do it over a 12-month period.
"It's exciting to see kind of how far she's going to be able to go."
Two years ago, Chinese tennis star Li Na won the Australian Open, winning the hearts of fans around the world with a victory speech that went viral, while also proving that her first major title at Roland Garros three years beforehand had not been a fluke.
Since Li's injury-enforced retirement 16 months ago, the world has been waiting to see who might take her place.
And the wait shows no signs of ending.
Since that point Cheap Air Max 1 Outlet , half a dozen Chinese female players have spent time in the world's top 100, but only one now is - Zheng Saisai, ranked 85th. If Zheng were to win in Melbourne at the Australian Open, which kicks off next week, it would be her first singles win on the WTA Tour.
It's not exactly evidence of a new generation of stars ready to take over the tennis world.
China's men have long lagged the women in on-court heroics Cheap Air Max 95 Outlet , and things appear to be getting worse: This will be the first time in four years that no Chinese man will appear in the Australian Open's main draw, despite the introduction of a wildcard tournament that is heavily weighted in favor of Chinese representation.
But it's not all doom and gloom.
Olivier Grignard, a French coach who has worked with several of China's top young players, says he's optimistic about the long-term prognosis for Chinese tennis.
China currently has eight girls in the top 100 of the world junior rankings and even the boys have two, with Wu Yibing at the lofty height of No.25.
Much has been made of the lack of Chinese male -tennis stars Cheap Air Max 90 Outlet , with Grignard's take that the traditional preference for boys in China leads to male players who have less individual drive due to too much coddling early on.
In addition, he says, it's easier for the girls to adjust their games to disguise a lack of technical ability that is still missing at the top levels in China.
But one girl he has worked with, Xu Shilin, who won gold at the Youth Olympic Games in 2014 Cheap Air Max Outlet , was "born to play tennis," according to Grignard. "She has huge potential, and is really talented," but adds that there are still so many unknown factors for any player to reaching the very top.
So when will Li's successor emerge?
"The girls can have a surprise in 4-5 years, I think. The boys in 6-7 years Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Shoes , or maybe longer."
Patience, then, is the virtue, but Li's success has made Chinese fans hungry for more - sooner rather than later.
