image for Andy Murray Leapfrogs Nadal After Tsonga Victory
Tennis fans love a good leapfrog

Andy Murray achieved another career landmark with victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Montreal today, securing second place in the world rankings.

The Scot, 22, beat the Frenchman 6-4 7-6 (10-8) to reach the final of the Masters event, and, to celebrate, performed a leapfrog over the current world no. 2, Rafa Nadal.

The Spaniard, who had lost to Del Potro in his quarter-final stage, was watching from the stands, and looked alarmed at the end as Murray threw his racquet into the air, and climbed over several rows of seats to get to Nadal.

Once there, he manhandled a powerless Nadal into a 'bended position', placed his hands squarely in the small of the Spaniard's back, and gleefully launched himself 'over the top'.

The manoeuvre was warmly applauded by the crowd.

Murray told BBC Radio Five Live:

"It's great. I've worked really hard after Wimbledon and it's nice when you feel like the hard work is paying off. It's nice to make that jump, and I'll try and go one step further next time, and 'do' Federer as well!

"To jump somebody like a Nadal or a Federer is so difficult, that's why no-one's done it for five or six years. They've dominated the rankings and in my opinion they are the two best rivals ever.

"I think it's a great achievement."

*CAUTION: Leapfrogging can be dangerous, and should not be attempted by those with chronic back problems. Always consult a trained physician first.
