PARIS (Reuters) - Briton Andy Murray will take over from Novak Djokovic as world number one when the rankings are updated on Monday after his Paris Masters semi-final opponent Milos Raonic withdrew with a leg injury on Saturday.

"I have a tear in my right quad," Canadian Raonic told a news conference.
