10 British stars are lined up to compete for the titles at the Lexus British Open Roehampton, including reigning British Open men’s singles champion and world No.2 Alfie Hewett. Hewett will begin his bid for back-to-back British Open titles just a few days after becoming the inaugural men’s wheelchair singles champion at the Rothesay International Eastbourne.

Two-time British Open champion Hewett and former singles finalist Gordon Reid will compete for the men’s singles title again alongside British No.3 Ben Bartram and British No.4 Dahnon Ward. Britain’s top four ranked players were all members of the Lexus GB World Team Cup Men’s Team that won the World Team Cup title in Turkey in May, and they all contested the men’s doubles final at the Rothesay International Eastbourne, where Hewett and Reid won their 50th career doubles title together.

Andrew Penney completes a list of all five current top ranked British men’s players who will be competing in Roehampton.

British No.1 Lucy Shuker, the 2002 British Open women’s singles runner-up, will join British No.2 Abbie Breakwell in the women’s field at the 2004 Lexus British Open Roehampton. Shuker arrives in Roehampton having won the first grass court title of her career at the Rothesay International Eastbourne. Meanwhile, 2022 British Open quad singles champion Andy Lapthorne will aim to regain the title he won two years ago as one of three Brits in this year’s quad singles entry alongside British No.2 Greg Slade and Gary Cox.

World No.2 and two-time British Open champion Yui Kamiji of Japan and world No. 4 and 2022 champion Aniek van Koot of the Netherlands are also among the star names to watch for, alongside world No.3 and former finalist Jiske Griffioen, who arrives in Roehampton on the back of winning her first Rothesay International Eastbourne women’s singles title.

Six of the world’s top 10 ranked quad players are set to contest the Lexus British Open Roehampton, with current world No.1 Sam Schroder and world No.2 Niels Vink having won three British Open quad singles titles between them since 2019.

Recent French Open champion and world No.3 Guy Sasson and fellow rising star Ahmet Kaplan of Turkey are other players to look out for alongside leading Brit and world No.7 Lapthorne and Australia’s world No.5 Heath Davidson. Davidson and Lapthorne contested the quad singles final at the Lexus British Open Roehampton, with the Australian taking the title before Lapthorne and fellow Brit Slade beat Davidson and Kaplan in the quad doubles final.
