A rejuvenated Andy Murray proved to be the dominant force on planet tennis by upsetting the odds to beat Novak Djokovic to win the World Tour Finals for the first time and end the year as world No 1. In a fitting climax to the season, the top two players went head-on for the year-end world No 1, and it was Britains finest who stopped Djokovic from securing his fifth successive title at the O2 Arena with a stunning 6-3 6-4 victory.Murrays victory in London also gave him his fifth title in a row following triumphs in Beijing, Shanghai, Vienna and Paris and ninth of the season. Djokovic, who was aiming to match Roger Federers record of six titles, had perfect preparation for the final, but Murray was simply unplayable as he shocked his long-time rival in the winner-takes-all shootout to extend his winning run to 24 matches.Shots of the matchMurray and Djokovic showed why theyre ranked one and two in the world with an exhibition of winners from all angles in Sundays final... Murrays cross-court angled backhand winner was a possible contender for shot of the tournament Djokovic has become a master of the half volley and he proved it again with this sumptuous winner The Scot showed his confidence with this winner down the line Murray reactionIts a very special day, playing against Novak in a match like this. We have played Grand Slam finals, Olympics and matches like this. It has been a tough rivalry. I have lost many of them, but happily I managed to get the win today and to finish the year No 1 is very special. This is something I never expected. Murray spoke to Marcus Buckland, Annabel Croft and Greg Rusedski after beating Djokovic in the final Expert opinionGreg Rusedski: Unbelievable. What a performance, 24 matches in a row, against the world No 2, finding a way to get it done. Physically, he must have been hurting from the first ball to the last ball. Only the 17th man since the rankings started to be end-of-season world No 1. What a moment. An extraordinary effort Andy Murray outclassed and outfought rival Novak Djokovic, says Barry Cowan Peter Fleming: As ever, Novak Djokovic, one of the great sportsmen in defeat. But for Andy Murray, what a moment. All the hard work he has put in, all the suffering he has gone through, being the nearly man for so long, and for his entire camp, what a thrill: world No 1 at the end of the year. You can never take that away. Djokovic: Let Andy enjoy this Novak Djokovic says Andy Murray should be left to enjoy No 1 spot Match reportMurray had not played Djokovic since losing the French Open final in June, his 24th defeat in 34 meetings with his former junior rival.Djokovic, who came into the tournament on his worst run of form for several years, certainly appeared to have the spark back after demolishing Kei Nishikori in the semi-finals on Saturday. Did you know... Murray has broken serve in all 87 singles matches hes played this year. Murray, who provided his home crowd with another trademark tennis epic, spending three hours and 38 minutes quelling the ferocious firepower of Milos Raonic, somehow recovered to walk out to a fever-pitch atmosphere at the O2 Arena. The 12-time major winner showed his is only human after this badly mistimed smash He made a composed start too, looking comfortable on serve and driving his opponent back behind the baseline. The steely Serb was forced to repel Murrays two break point chances during a lengthy sixth game.Murray needed one last push at the end of a stunning second half to 2016, when he has won Wimbledon and the Olympics before topping the rankings for the first time, and he pummelled the nervous Serbs backhand to make the first move in a stylish eighth game. And the Serb was at it again when he inexplicably missed this sitter at the net Djokovic was meant to be the fresher man and, after a relatively lean second half of the year, was odds-on to snatch back top-dog status in Murrays backyard, but an array of unforced errors as well as an inspired Scot at the opposite end of the court, helped him to break at the start of the next set.He established a 4-1 lead before Djokovic attempted a comeback by salvaging one of the breaks back as the tension mounted in a fever-pitch atmosphere. Heres the moment Murray sealed victory to end the year on top of the world Murray successfully served out the match, but only after a nervy finish on his third championship point, to send the home crowd into raptures and end a remarkable season on top of the world.

. FIFA said in a statement Friday that "several racist and discriminatory incidents were apparently perpetrated by local supporters during the match, in particular by displaying neo-Nazi banners and by making monkey noises and gestures as well as Nazi salutes.ARE, Sweden - Struggling to overcome jet lag after making the trip from Canada to Europe, Tina Maze surprised herself on Friday.The overall World Cup leader from Slovenia sped down the Olympia course in the second run of a giant slalom to win in a combined time of 2 minutes, 23.84 seconds. It was her third win of the season and 26th of her career.Honestly Id rather say Oh come on, just let me sleep. But then I said (to myself) Come on, you took this program now you should get yourself together and do the races, said Maze, the Olympic champion in the giant slalom. Sometimes you just have to push yourself over what your head is saying.Maze was in seventh place after the first run, but she still finished .20 seconds ahead of Sara Hector of Sweden, who secured her first career podium. First-run leader Eva-Maria Brem of Austria was third, .28 behind.Despite feeling sluggish, Maze was .70 faster than Hector and .86 faster than Brem on the second run.On the first run I didnt find the right pressure on the skis at the top, Maze said.After fulfilling her media obligations, Maze laid down on the snow with her arms outstretched for several moments, already preparing to get some well-earned rest.Feeling groggy actually seemed to help her to focus.Im still jet-lagged. For sure you pay more attention on that ... if youre in that state of mind that youd like to sleep, Maze said. Sometimes things are coming to you really fast and sometimes when youre not focused the mistakes caan happen.ddddddddddddMaze, who won the overall World Cup title in 2013, was 12th on the womens all-time list for World Cup wins.She has shown her versatility this season, with a downhill win in Canada last month and victory in slalom in Finland.Im probably the only one doing all events (this year), Maze said. Its amazing. Im really happy about my skiing. Im just relaxed.Her form is picking up quickly after she made a difficult start to the season, finishing 22nd at the season-opening giant slalom in Soelden, Austria. She improved to fourth in giant slalom last month in Colorado.I didnt worry too much about Soelden, the others did more. I know I have something else, she said. I expected a podium, I must say. I didnt expect a victory today.Brem secured her third podium of the season — all in GS — after winning in Colorado and placing third in Soelden.I had my first podium here last year, Brem said. For me, everything changed here.Italian skiers Federica Brignone and Nadia Fanchini were fourth and fifth, respectively, while Anna Fenninger was sixth.Marie-Pier Prefontaine of Ste-Agathe, Que., was 22nd.Fenninger, the Olympic giant slalom silver medallist from Austria, was looking to become the first woman since Anja Paerson in 2004 to win five GS races in a calendar year.A mens giant slalom under floodlights was to follow later Friday.The womens race was moved from Courchevel and the mens from Val dIsere because of a lack of snow in the French Alps.
