Scott Clayton says he is aiming to finish the year on a high ahead of his final two tournaments of 2017.

The Jersey doubles specialist recently broke into the world’s top 150 for the first time.

After reaching the final of the ATP Challenger Tour event in Brest with Divij Sharan last month, he is back playing with fellow Brit Jonny O’Mara this week in India.

They head to Pune first, where Clayton previously represented Jersey at the Commonwealth Youth Games in 2008, before finishing their season in Bangalore the week after.

Together the pair have reached four Challenger semi-finals this year and claimed one title, in Turkey in September.
