Andy Murray hopes that a victory in Vienna can boost his world ranking as he is set to play Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff in the quarter finals of the tournament, after a win over  Canada’s Vasek Pospisil.

Although being number 1 in Great Britain, the Scotsman is currently ranked 10th in the world but could soon be climbing, as 8th position Milos Raonic was defeated this week by Ricardas Berenkis in the second round of the Kremlin Cup.

Murray is aiming to make it into the top 8 by winning the Vienna tournament, as well as the next event in Valencia, in order to qualify for the world tour finals of which incredibly challenging opponents such as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have already secured their place.

He has previously qualified for the tournament, which is held at the 02 Arena in London every year since 2008 and hopes this year will be no different.
