Tennis: Murray routs Pouille in Paris last 16

PARIS, (Pakistan Point News - 04th Nov, 2016 ) - Andy Murray remained firmly in contention to become the new world number one after thrashing Frenchman Lucas Pouille to reach the Paris Masters quarter-finals on Thursday. The Scot won the final eight games against 13th seed Pouille to cruise to a dominant 6-3, 6-0 victory and extend his winning streak to 17 matches. He will meet seventh seed Tomas Berdych or Frenchman Gilles Simon next as he bids to end Novak Djokovic's 122-week run at the top of the rankings. Murray has won three straight tournaments -- in Beijing, Shanghai and Vienna -- to drastically close the gap on Djokovic and must at least reach the final in Paris to stand a chance of displacing the Serb.
