The Briton sealed the 43rd tour-level title of his career and his 14th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title and mother Judy was full of praise for her son, admitting that when he realised he was in sight of No 1, there was no stopping him in his pursuit.The circuit is very stacked and very demanding and usually everybody is getting a little bit tired, theres a lot of injuries, but hes just been so strong. Once he got closer and closer he just went on a bit of a mission and when hes on a mission hes dangerous, she told Sky Sports. WATCH: Murray is world No 1 Andy Murray is the new world No 1 and Sky Sports pays tribute to Britains finest tennis player Hes been in the mix with Roger [Federer] and Rafa [Nadal] and Novak [Djokovic] for a long time now and its a matter of consistency and this has been his most consistent year so its nice that hes managed to find his way to the top of the rankings. Jamie Murray, who teamed up to form a successful partnership with Bruno Soares to become world No 1 earlier this year, now has a chance of ending the season top of the ladder in mens doubles at the ATP World Tour Finals.But the dynamic duo face a fight against top-ranked French pairing Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.The year before Jamie was in a couple of Slam finals so he learned what it was like to do to get there and he also learned what it was like to play in one, she said. I think he used that to his advantage and has formed a good partnership with Bruno and thats the key to doubles. Its important to stick with the same partner for a long time because its a 12 month rolling ranking.And on the Murray family plans for Christmas, she added: Well have to plan some extra special dreadful Christmas jumpers.

The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick.Brian Carney is backing St Helens bid to defend their great name following claims by former player Lance Hohaia that he wasnt supported in his recovery from a high profile concussion. The New Zealander was punched twice by Wigans Ben Flower in the 2014 Super League Grand Final.  In recent days, he claimed in an interview with New Zealands Sunday Herald newspaper that he was not offered a suitable period of rest to recover from concussion symptoms. The former international, who walked out of his contract with Saints and subsequently retired in April, also claims that he was offered only prescription medicines following the incident. St Helens Lance Hohaia lies on the ground after being punched by Ben Flower in the 2014 Grand Final St Helens have firmly denied the allegations.  It is a very messy situation and Stt Helens have fought back, said Carney.dddddddddddd. Lance Hohaia, he suffered terribly in that. He claims he hasnt had the treatment he thinks he should have had from the club. The club have responded, theyve denied that and theyve said they will take all action available to them to defend the great name of St Helens, which they should do! And the former league legend says St Helens wont be distracted by the furore over the comments, ahead of their hotly anticipated tie with Wigan on Friday.The Lance Hoia incident and St Helens reaction to it - I dont think that will affect preparation this week. I think sports men and sports women are able to isolate themselves in a necessarily selfish way to concentrate on the game at hand. I dont think it will affect the performances of these two sets of teams. Also See: St Helens v Wigan: 6 Classics Sky Live: Castleford v Leeds Rugby League on Sky Fixtures and results ' ' '
