Murray is new British number one

Andy Murray has replaced Tim Henman as British number one after moving up five places in the ATP rankings.

Englishman Henman, the long-standing number one of domestic tennis, has been deposed by rising star Murray after suffering a poor 2005 while Murray rose to prominence rapidly.

Henman, 31, has fallen nine places in the ATP rankings to 49th, leaving fellow Briton Greg Rusedski British number two.

Rusedski remains 43rd in the world with 18-year-old Scot Murray, who won his first ATP Tour title in San Jose earlier this month, a place ahead in 42nd.
