LONDON -- Andy Murray looked up and soaked it all in as he walked out into the O2 Arena. This was a new feeling.He had waited a while for it -- seven years and 89 days, to be precise, since first becoming world No. 2 in August 2009.Given a standing ovation, the Scot stepped onto court as the top ranked player in the world for the first time Monday evening. Shaking off a few early nerves, he delivered a 6-3, 6-2 win over Marin Cilic.He could only smile as the crowd showed him their love.A big thank you for all of the support. I really appreciate it, the Scot said in his on-court interview. Ill keep working hard to give you moments like this on the court.His debut as No. 1 -- the first Briton to achieve the feat since the debut of the ATP rankings in 1973 -- fittingly came on home soil, and just an hours drive from his house in Surrey, where he has opted to stay during this tournament for the first time.Murray extended his win streak to 20 matches, just two shy of his career-best total. That particular run was set this summer, and was ended by none other than Cilic in the Cincinnati Masters final.When you start winning, you gain confidence, Murray added. In the important moments of break points, I was a little bit more solid. He had some chances in the first set, but I took my opportunities. Thats what winning matches does for you.The 2014 US Open winner was a dangerous opponent, having won the title in Basel last month and recorded his first win over Novak Djokovic to reach the Paris Masters semifinals.Aside from an early break back in the first set, the Croat had no answers here, despite the presence of Murrays former assistant coach Jonas Bjorkman in his players box. Cilic and his new coach were simply unable to cook up a game plan to throw Murray off.Making the final here would push Murray to a personal-best 23rd consecutive win. He may need to make it 24, though, if he wants to finish year-end No. 1.There are several permutations whereby either he or Novak Djokovic can finish the year on top, and the simplest for Murray is to win his first Tour Finals title.It was a great atmosphere here, Murray said. I played one of my best matches Ive played here over the years. Ill just try and keep going until the end of the year now.Murray, still unbeaten in London this year having won Queens Club and Wimbledon, halted a run of three consecutive breaks to take a 4-1 lead in the first set against Cilic before taking it in 46 minutes.He then broke the Croat twice in the second set and served it out in an hour and a half.Earlier Monday, Stan Wawrinka was bounced 6-2, 6-3 by Kei Nishikori in just 67 minutes.His match stats didnt make for good reading -- failing to create a single break point, Wawrinka committed 31 unforced errors and three double faults.One of those handed Nishikori a double break and a 5-2 lead in the first set, which the Japanese player closed out in less than half an hour.The Swiss was self-deprecating with his trademark sense of humour in his post-match press conference. Asked if the quicker courts were better than last year at the O2 Arena, he quipped with a smile: So far not, because I just lost the match, but I will see at the end of the tournament.Wawrinkas serve deserted him. He made just 52 percent of first serves in the opening set, and won just 38 percent of points on his second serve throughout the match.As impressive as Nishikori was, his serve has never been his strong point but still Wawrinka was unable to capitalize. The world No. 5 made just 47 percent of his first serves, yet managed to win 74 percent of points on his second serve.Nishikori closed out the win by breaking Wawrinka for a fourth time, gaining a measure of revenge for his semifinal defeat at Flushing Meadows.It was not a great match compared to what I can do, thats for sure, added Wawrinka. It wasnt a great day for myself. In general, I think he play well, put a lot of pressure from the beginning.I dont think I find anything on the court today. I was a little bit slow on everything. I was hesitating a lot with my game, my movement. Julio Urias Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Kirk Gibson Jersey . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. http://www.baseballdodgersprostore.com/dodgers-yasiel-puig-jersey/ .

Enrique Hernandez Jersey . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Ronda Rousey has been relatively quiet since losing her UFC bantamweight title to Holly Holm in November. While rumors and rumblings of her return to fighting have persisted the past several months, we still have no real idea when -- or even if -- she will make her long-awaited comeback.But in a brand-new Reebok commercial that hit the interwebs on Tuesday, Rousey subtly hints at a return and makes an argument that being imperfect might actually be even more compelling. With lines like Perfect never gets a shot at redemption and Perfect never gets to silence its critics, Roousey insists shes Fine not being perfect.ddddddddddddI could tell you more about the 30-second spot, or you could just save yourself the time and hit play already.As a fellow non-perfect person, I totally approve this message. Now please return to the Octagon, Ronda. The sport needs you -- and all your imperfections -- ASAP.See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared?
