This week we have Brits in action all across the globe, from America to Australia and even on an island just off Madagascar.

And it's that island, the French territory Reunion Island, where the British number two James Ward will be partaking in a challenger event, where he is seeded third. The 27-year-old will enter the worlds top 100 for the first time if he can win the tournament.

The only British man ranked higher than Ward, former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has almost certainly guaranteed his place at the end of season, ATP Tour Championships and will be looking for another title, this week at the Paris Masters.

Elsewhere, the third and fourth highest ranked players, Ed Corrie and Liam Broady are playing in the Charlottesville Challenger in Virgini. Corrie is taking on unseeded Barbadian Darian King, whilst Broady has a tough match against second seed Tim Smyczek in the first round.

Whilst in Australia, fellow Brits, Brydan Klein and Kyle Edmund are taking part in the Traralgon Challenger, and both have tough draws.
