Race to London

In Tennis, Andy Murray virtually assured himself of qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals by battling to a five-set victory over Tommy Robredo in the Valencia Open final.

The British No.1 saved five match points in a dramatic contest which lasted three hours 19 minutes, in a remarkably similar match to the one played out between the pair at the Shenzhen Open final last month.

Murray now has 500 ranking points and moves into the top non-qualified spot in the Race to London standings.

The Scot took to Facebook after the match to share his delight at the victory and thank fans for their support, paying tribute to his Spanish opponent - who he labelled a great guy.

Administration

And finally Formula 1, where Marussia have entered administration and will miss this weekend's United States Grand Prix, with current owner Andrey Cheglakov no longer able to provide investment for the team.

The Administrators 'FRP Advisory LLP' released a statement which revealed Marussia had failed to find backing elsewhere, before intimating that they must find a buyer if they are to return.
