Australian Open 2024: Alfie Hewett & Gordon Reid lift fifth successive doubles title

• 2 MINUTE READ

Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid won their fifth successive Australian Open wheelchair men’s doubles title after a straight sets win over Japanese duo Takuya Miki and Tokito Oda.

Having played their semi-final earlier in the day, the British duo sealed their 19th Grand Slam title together with an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win against Miki and Oda in the final on the Kia Arena.

Hewett has now extended his overall major haul to 27 titles, with his singles final against Oda scheduled for Sunday.

"That was one of the most enjoyable finals that I've played - not just because we won but because of the quality," said Hewett. "I'm sure there's going to be many more finals where we're going to come against you.

"It's always a pleasure to play with you Gordon and to get a fifth title. We look forward to being back next year!"

Meanwhile, Reid claimed his 25th title at a Slam and his sixth in Melbourne. It was also Reid’s 100th combined doubles title in juniors and pros across his career.

"I want to say thanks for everyone coming out, watching wheelchair tennis and getting involved in the match," said Reid. "This is why we do it, it's the reason why we play and put in all the hours at home."
