The Scot made relatively light work of Dimitrov in the final on Sunday, as he wrapped up a 6-4 7-6 (7-2) victory to secure the 40th singles title of his career.

Murray did not drop a set during the entire tournament in Beijing and will be fancied to go all the way again next week at the Shanghai Masters.

The world number two was pleased with his performance and feels his game is as good as it has ever been.

He said: "It was a great week for me. Today's match was a very high-level match. Grigor fought right to the end and made it extremely tough to finish it in two sets. It's been an excellent week and I'm very happy with the way that I have played the last couple of matches. I will look forward to Shanghai now.

"It's been the most consistent year of my career, getting to the latter stages of most of the events I have played."
