Alfie Hewett has missed out on the chance to defend his Australian Open singles title, after being defeated by Tokito Oda 6-2, 6-4 in the final.

Just 24 hours ago, Hewett joined forces with Gordon Reid to lift the pair's fifth Australian Open men's wheelchair doubles title on the bounce - defeating Japanese duo Takuya Miki and Oda in straight sets.

Facing Oda in the singles final was always going to be a tough ask, despite the Brit leading 6-4 in the head-to-head going into the match.

A strong start from both players saw little separate the two, but it was the 17-year-old who eyed the early the breakthrough at 2-2. After drawing out the unforced error from Hewett to secure the first break of the match, Oda rallied to win the next three games in a row to seal the set.

With plenty of work for the Brit to do to turn the match around, second seed Oda pressed to carry the momentum with him into the second set. A tough opening service game for the Hewett was capped off with a backhand winner from the Japanese youngster to clinch yet another break and take the reigns to push ahead.

From then on, Oda proved too strong to break down as he racked up an impressive 29 winners in an hour and 31 minutes. The world No.2 shook off any signs of nerves when serving for the title, and eventually secured his maiden Australian Open singles trophy on his second championship point.
