Career best for Henman

Click to follow
Tim Henman, the British No 1 who has shown remarkable improvement this year, has moved up one place to 32 in the world rankings - the highest of his career. Henman is aiming to reach the top 20 by the turn of the year and will play six successive tournaments in Europe. His marathon stint begins today when he plays the Frenchman Guy Forget in the first round of the Lyon Grand Prix.

While Henman goes up, Greg Rusedski, the British No 2, has slipped to 84 in the rankings. This is because the points he gained from reaching the semi-finals of the Basle tournament last year have now gone off the computer. Rusedski is playing in the Heineken Open in Singapore this week.
