Murray targets number three ranking

5:59 am on 28 April 2009

Britain's top tennis player Andy Murray has the world number three Novak Djokovic in his sights as he prepares for his opening match at the Rome Masters.

The 21 year old Scot is one place behind the Serb in the world rankings and he's confident of swapping places with Djokovic, who probably has to win the Rome title to hold on to his place.

Murray says he would be the world number three right now had he not been penalised for withdrawing from a tournament last year, when he didn't know the rules.
