Marin Cilic handed the Murray fans a brilliant gift by knocking out the top seed and world number one Novak Djokovic in straight sets. This leaves Andy with a chance to grab the number one spot in the ATP rankings, if he wins his next two matches.

Cilic’s power game and Herculean serves were too hot to handle for an already struggling Djokovic, as he succumbed 6-4 7-6(2) to the Croatian. Andy was 415 points behind at the beginning of BNP Paribas Masters and needed Novak to be knocked out before the finals to have any chance of claiming the top spot. Andy faces Berdych in his quarter final and the winner of Tsonga-Raonic in semis.

Naturally so, the twitter had a lot to say about this important match.
