Tim Henman, the British No 2, has broken into the top 100 in the world for the first time. He has climbed from 111 to 99 thanks to his victory in the ATP Challenger tournament in Reunion Island.

It is just reward for a punishing schedule which also gave him a win in the ATP Challenger in Seoul last month, victory over the British No 1 Greg Rusedski to give him the national title at Telford and a place in the semi-finals of the ATP Challenger in Beijing.

Rusedski is at No 38 and Pete Sampras finished as No 1 for the third consecutive season.
