‘Murray playing best tennis of his career’

Paris: World number one Novak Djokovic praised Britain’s second-ranked Andy Murray, who is approaching the top spot of ATP ranking, after he won the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday.

During a press conference in Paris, Djokovic admitted that Murray is probably playing the best tennis of his career, Efe news reported.

Nole, 29, will start his Paris Masters campaign with a clash against the winner of the match between the Spanish Nicolas Almagro and Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller.

On the other hand, the Serb said he is happy to return to Paris, where he won Roland Garros earlier this year, saying: “Winning the French Open this year has brought a lot of joy to me but on the other hand has taken away a lot from me, as well.”

“I’m in a better state of mind at the moment than I was some months ago,” he added.
