When: 4 January 2014

Who: Andy Murray

Where: at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi

What: won ATP World Tennis Championship

Why: as Novak Djokovic withdrew from the final match citing illness

Andy Murray won his first title of 2015 after Novak Djokovic withdrew from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship final in Abu Dhabi because of illness.

Djokovic, the world number one, said he was unfit to play ahead of the final of the exhibition event on Saturday.

Djokovic’s withdrawal handed the Abu Dhabi title to Murray, who had looked in good form as he beat Feliciano Lopez in round one and then swept aside Rafael Nadal 6-2, 6-0 in the semi-final on Friday.

Murray, 27, had revealed after that match that he felt pain in his left shoulder, but he was reassured by the results of a scan on Saturday.
