Murray on course to boost ranking

Andy Murray during his match against Nicolas Massu

Andy Murray's beaten Nicolas Massu in straight sets at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami, taking him a step closer to becoming the world number three.

The British number one had a shaky start, losing the first three games.

But he fought back to beat the Chilean former Olympic champion 6-4 6-4 and make it through to the last 16.

He's currently the world number four, but if Murray can win the tournament in Miami he'll overtake Novak Djokovic to be named the world number three.
