ALFIE HEWETT CLAIMS FRENCH OPEN SINGLES AND WIMBLEDON DOUBLES TITLES

Alfie Hewett became the first British player to win a French Open wheelchair singles title after saving two match points at Roland Garros.

The 19-year-old won 0-6 7-6 (11-9) 6-2 against Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez to claim his first Grand Slam title.

Playing alongside Gordon Reid, the British pair made it into the doubles final, unfortunately losing 6-4 6-3 to French pair Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer.

Only weeks later Alfie reached the Semi Finals of the singles event at Wimbledon and playing alongside Gordon retained the doubles title they first won in 2016.
