Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic feels that Andy Murray's wife Kim Sears also deserves credit for him becoming the World No 1 ranked tennis player. Murray defeated Djokovic 6-3, 6-4 at The O2 Arena in London to clinch his first ATP World Tour Finals on Sunday.

"His team as well – and his wife. She has to get some credit, guys. She gave birth this year. I know how it is with my wife, Jelena, what she had to go through as a mother back home with a little baby. So, Kim, well done. She has maybe made even a bigger effort than Andy," Djokovic was quoted as saying by The International Business Times.

Meanwhile, Murray said, "When me and Novak speak with each other, we don't talk about tennis, but we talk about each other's families, children and stuff. We spoke quite a lot because obviously I became a father the first time. We spoke about the difficulty in keeping the sort of balance in your life with the family and the traveling etc."
