Raja finally beat the Scot from a set down and secured the year-end No. 1 ranking. He also proved that he wasn't exactly showing his ass when he claimed that the outcome of this match-up depends more on him than his opponent. The encounter featured some great shotmaking but I imagine the final set wouldn't have been so lopsided if Murray wasn't in such visible physical discomfort.
The US Open champ is still alive.
