Andy Murray moved one step closer to becoming world number one by beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6 (8-6) in the Erste Bank Open in Vienna.

The Scot, 29, asserted his dominance in the first set against Frenchman Tsonga in his 78th singles match of the year.

But he faced a revived Tsonga in the second, needing a tie-break to win it.

The Briton will replace Novak Djokovic as number one by winning next week's Paris Masters, provided Djokovic does not reach the final.
