London (Agencies): Andy Murray is hopeful he can eventually overhaul Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings after rising to world No2 after defeating David Ferrer at the Miami Masters. The 25-year-old climbed above Roger Federer with the 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 victory in the final in Miami and although his points tally of 8,750 is a long way off Djokovic's 12,370, Murray is confident he is on the right path. When asked about his return to the world's top two, Murray told atpworldtour.com: "For me it doesn't change a huge amount, but the fact that I'm moving up the rankings is a good sign. I have been winning a lot of matches. My consistency has been better over the last few months. The rankings obviously reflect that, so I will try and keep working hard during the clay [season] and hopefully I can go higher." Murray was far from his best for long periods on Sunday, losing the first set and seeing his own serve frequently broken by his Spanish opponent. But the Scot clung on for more than two hours and 45 minutes, staving off a match point late in the third set, to claim the Miami title for the second time in his career.
