Muster Climbs To Top Spot In Atp Men’s Tennis Rankings

By Compiled From Wire Services

Thomas Muster, master of the clay courts, overtook Andre Agassi on Monday to claim the No. 1 ranking in men’s tennis.

The Austrian is the 13th player to be in first place since the rankings began in 1973. However, Muster’s position at the top of the ATP Tour may not last long.

The No. 1 ranking will be up for grabs again this week when Muster plays in Dubai while Agassi and Pete Sampras play in San Jose, Calif.

Muster had 4,474 points to move ahead of Sampras, who now has 4,465. Agassi, who took over as No. 1 from Sampras at the Australian Open, dropped to third.

“I’ve won one Grand Slam out of 12 tournaments,” Muster said Monday in South Africa, where he played in a Davis Cup match. “I’ve won the biggest indoors event. I think I’ve proved that I am the No. 1. If it’s one hour or one week or one year, it’s a big achievement.”
