Andy Murray is one match win away from becoming the new World No.2 in the South African Airways 2009 ATP Rankings.
Murray, who will meet Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, will take over the No.2 position from Rafael Nadal with a win over the former Australian Open finalist. He would become the first player other than Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to rank No.2 since July 18, 2005. On that date, Lleyton Hewitt was No.2 behind Federer. World No.3 Murray is already the highest-ranked British player in history, surpassing the likes of Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski.
