Murray grouped with Wawrinka, Nishikori, Cilic at ATP Finals

LONDON (AP) " Andy Murray, the world's new top-ranked men's player, has been drawn in a group with Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori and Maric Cilic for the ATP finals.

Former No. 1 Novak Djokovic was drawn Monday with Milos Raonic, Gael Monfils and Dominic Thiem for the year-end tournament starting Sunday at the O2 Arena in London.

Murray, who officially took over the No. 1 ranking for the first time on Monday, has never won the ATP finals.

Djokovic, who has won the tournament the past four years, could reclaim the No. 1 spot if he defends his title.

Djokovic will open play Sunday against ninth-ranked Thiem, followed by No. 4 Raonic vs. No. 6 Monfils. On Monday, No. 3 Wawrinka will face No. 5 Nishikori, with Murray playing No. 7 Cilic in the night match.
