Day fifteen: Hewett and Reid lift third Roland Garros title
The Brits came through two testing tie-breaks against Gustavo Fernandez and Shingo Kunieda to defeat the singles finalists 7-6(5), 7-6(5). The victory makes Hewett and Reid the most successful wheelchair doubles partnership in Roland Garros history.
After saving set points in the 10th game, Hewett and Reid edged ahead 5-3 in the tie-break thanks to an error from the Argentinian, Japanese duo and held out to go a set to the good.
The second set was a battle of the breaks, with four in the final five games. Despite losing championship point opportunities prior to the tie-break, the Brits showed great mental toughness in the decisive points and with the title on the line once again, their opponents sent the ball long to complete a historic victory for the Brits.
The British duo will now battle against Gustavo Fernandez and Shingo Kunieda to defend their title as they aim to win their third consecutive Roland Garros title.
Hewett and Reid won six of the last seven games as they claimed the opening set in in 36 minutes, but after dropping several games in the second set on a no-ad deciding deuce they could only partially recover from going 5-1 down. However, their experience ultimately told against Grand Slam debutants Caverzaschi and De la Puente, with Hewett wrapping up match point as he slotted a forehand winner across court.
Alfie Hewett's dreams of regaining his title are now beyond reach; Andy Lapthorne misses out on a place in the semi finals; meanwhile Lucy Shuker and Dana Mathewson's first Grand Slam together results in a 6-2, 6-1 defeat.
First up; Lapthorne’s hopes of reaching a second French Open quad singles final in three years came undone at the first hurdle in Paris. Lapthorne came up against an in-form top seed in world No.1 Niels Vink and while Britain’s two-time US Open champion managed to extend Vink early in the second set he was unable to penetrate the Dutchman’s defences often enough as Vink moved on to the semi-finals after a 6-0, 6-0 win.
Hewett’s Roland Garros men’s singles title defence ended in a 6-1 6-1 semi-final loss this year to two-time champion Gustavo Fernandez.
Hewett memorably recovered from a set and 2-0 down to beat Fernandez in their final in Paris in 2017, but as the match passed the same score this time, the Argentinians grip on the match only got stronger. A trademark topspin backhand brought Hewett his only game of the second set and even though Fernandez fell from his tennis chair chasing down another Hewett backhand winner at the start of the sixth game, it did little to affect the world No.3’s form.
Onto the women's doubles where Shuker and Mathewson’s first Grand Slam match together ended in a 6-2, 6-1 quarter-final loss to Japan’s Momoko Ohtani and China’s Zhenzhen Zhu.
Shuker and Mathewson, who have reached five finals and won two titles together this season, came from 2-0 down early in the opening set, but when Shuker held serve for the first time to make it 3-2 it was the Anglo-American partnership’s last success of the set. At 4-0 down in the second set Shuker held serve again, but Ohtani and Zhu continued to set the pace before advancing to the semi-finals.
Alfie Hewett began his French Open title defence with a comprehensive 6-1, 6-2 victory over Dutch star Tom Egberink.
Hewett’s bid for a fourth Roland Garros singles trophy will continue with a semi-final clash against world No.3, Gustavo Fernandez. The two have faced each other five times already this season, with Hewett leading 4-1 in the head-to-head.
Hewett made a blistering start, earning a 4-0 lead in just 11 minutes and relinquishing just the sixth game of the opening set. Egberink, so often a difficult opponent for Hewett in the past, made things more difficult for the Briton in the second set, but Hewett moved on to the final four.
Gordon Reid’s hopes of reaching a third French Open men’s singles final came to an early end against Japan’s Tokito Oda, one of the brightest stars to come on the wheelchair tennis scene in recent years.
Playing his first tournament since the Australian Open after resting an injury, Reid was unable to recover from going down an early break. Back-to-back games kept him in touch with Oda in the second set, but the world No.4’s singles campaign came to a close losing out 6-1, 6-4.
Andy Lapthorne an his American partner David Wagner saw their Roland Garros quad doubles title defence end a the first hurdle this year with a 1-6, 6-4, 10-8 semi-final loss to Australian Heath Davidson and Brazil's Ymanitu Silva.
Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski's French Open campaigns came to an end on day ten with tough three-set quarter-final losses.
Salisbury and Rajeev Ram were just edged in two tie-breaks in their clash against Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek 3-6, 7-6(9), 7-6(10).
The former Australian and US Open champions led 7-4 in the final match tie-break and had a match point at 9-8, but the Croatian, American partnership eventually came through to progress to the semi-finals.
Skupski and Wesley Koolhof took an early set lead and despite having them having three break point opportunities mid-way through the second, lost to Horacio Zeballos and Marcel Granollers 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Skupski was also defeated in the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles yesterday alongside Desirae Krawczyk. Joe Salisbury is now the last remianing Brit in the men's doubles draw - currently playing Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek.
Lucy Shuker was knocked out in the opening round of the women's singles draw - losing 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 to former world No.1 and 2015 champion, Jiske Griffioen.
Shuker claimed an 11-minute first game and then raced to a 3-0 lead as she sparked hopes of repeating her women’s singles first round victory on her debut in Paris in 2007.
However, despite coming back from 3-0 down in the second set and earning game points that would have seen her level at 3-3 had she been able to take her opportunties, Shuker was unable to maintain her early commanding advantage. She continued to be competitive in every game and earned her place on the scoreboard in the fifth game of the final set, but the British No.1 finally succumbed and will now focus on trying to reach a second successive Grand Slam doubles final.
“I tried to execute my game, you know; the game plan that I had is slightly higher risk," said Shuker. "
"I'm going after my shots, but I know that that's kind of the way that I need to play, which is what I did in the first set. But she was the person that executed better on the day in the third set. It's a shame but there's lots of positives to take as well."
Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara were knocked out in the French Open quarter-finals after the British, Finnish partnership lost to Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop 4-6, 6-4, 7-6(3).
In their best performance at a major tournament to date, Glasspool and Heliovaara came just moments from reaching the semi-final, serving for the match at 5-4 in the third, but couldn’t put away their opponents in the decisive moments.
The two will now head to Great Britain for the grass court season – leaving just Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski in the men’s doubles draw. If both Brits win, they will face off in the semi-finals.

The Wimbledon champions had break point opportunities in the second set but the Norweigen, Belgian team stayed strong to force and win both tie-breaks to complete their upset against the fourth seeds.
Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof join Salisbury and Glasspool in the quarter-finals after defeating American pair, Mackenzie McDonald and Tommy Paul, 6-3, 6-2. This marks Skupski’s second quarter-final match at Roland Garros, having previously reached the fourth round in 2020 with then-partner, Jamie Murray.
Skupski and Koolhof will go head-to-head with No.4 seeds, Spanish/Argentinian double-act, Marcel Granollers-Pujol and Horacio Zeballos. The two sides have had no previous encounters.
The duo only needed to break their opponents' serve once, early in the opening set, to take a 1-0 lead. They dominated in the second set, winning 50% of all return points and closing out the match in one hour 17 minutes.
Onto the mixed doubles where Skupski welcomed more success, alongside partner Desirae Krawczyk, after defeating Australia’s Storm Sanders and Belgium’s Sander Gille 4-6, 6-3, 10-8.

The Briton showed his fighting spirit after battling back from two sets down to take the third set. Despite his efforts to make it two sets a piece, Norrie struggled to find holes in Khachanov’s defence, eventually losing the deciding set after a pair of match-winning aces from the 26-year-old.

The British No.1 progresses to take on the 21st seed Karen Khachanov in the next round. The pair have faced each other five times, with Norrie current holding a 3-2 advantage - the most recent match coming at Rotterdam earlier this year, where the Brit won in straight sets.
It was disappointment however for Emma Raducanu who bowed out in a tough battle with Aliaksandra Sasnovich 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
After a promising debut appearance at Roland Garros, the young Brit will now turn her attention to the grass court season on home soil – starting at the Rothesay Classic Birmingham.
Norrie survived an early scare as the Australian qualifier threatened to break in the third game but soon found his feet and took a hold of the set. The 10th seed found the decisive break at 3-2 and served it out for a one set led – Kubler only managing one point against Norrie’s second serve.
The world No.11 looked in full control with further break point opportunities to go 3-0 up but the Aussie fired back and instead went on to take a 3-2 lead. Norrie hustled back, again grinding down his opponent with his forehand into the left-hand corner to break for 5-4 and from there, take the set.
Norrie fell behind early in the third set but bounced back to claim six games in a row, refusing to give up on any point as he succeeded in wearing down Kubler and sealed a hard-earned victory.
Raducanu drew first blood in the match, taking advantage of her first break point opportunity with an attacking second serve return, finishing with a driven backhand down the line. Her continued pressure showed once again at the end of the set as errors began to sift into Sasnovich’s game. A double fault, followed by wayward forehand led to Raducanu breaking again to win the set.
The second set was a different story, with Sasnovich capitalising on a slight dip in intensity from Raducanu to break in the opening game and seal a 3-0 lead. The world No.49 fired 19 winners past Raducanu to level the scores.
With the scores locked at 1-1 Sasnovich claimed a pivotal game, managing to hold out the Brit’s baseline assault to save five break points and stay on serve. From there, Sasnovich looked almost untouchable, breaking Raducanu straight away and winning eight points on the spin to put herself out of sight and book her place in the third round.
Having received a late call up to enter the main draw, British duo Watson and Murray Sharan dominated Madison Brengle and Arina Rodionova 6-1, 6-3.

Heather Watson and Harriet Dart were both knocked out in the first round this year's French Open - Watson going out 6-3, 6-3 to Elsa Jacquemot and Dart losing 6-0, 6-2 to Marina Trevisan. Both players will now turn their attention to the grass court season on home soil.
The British No.1 threatened to stamp her authority on the first set against the 17-year-old but on both occasions when she broke, the Czech star managed to level the scores.
Raducanu took the early mini break in the tie-break, but Noskova showed up in the biggest points, blasting a quartet of winners past the US Open champion to take a set lead.
Noskova looked untouchable as she broke Raducanu at 1-1 thanks to a well-executed drop shot and rocketed backhand winner down the line – but the 12th seed wasn’t out yet.
Raducanu broke back twice and held for a 5-4 lead and dug deep to keep asking questions of the former junior French Open champion, forcing a flurry of errors and hitting an inch perfect drop shot that pulled her back level.
With momentum starting to shift, Raducanu took advantage of her second break point opportunity with a rifled backhand return down the line to go 3-1 up. The fight back was complete after the Brit saved a break point before launching an all out attack on Noskva’s serve to lead and eventually serve out the match from 5-1.
Returning after a rain delay, which interrupted Norrie's warm-up, both players had to fight testing weather conditions in a hugely physical opening set. Norrie struck the first blow with a break in the third game and then held in a marathon game with 11 deuces go 3-1 up.
With the French crowd behind him though, Guinard fired back with a break of his own, but he couldn’t sustain the pressure, gifting Norrie the decisive break at 5-5 off a double fault.
The second set went back and forth with three breaks in the first three games, but Norrie soon seized control, clinching 91% of points against his opponent’s second serve to see out a 2-0 lead.
Norrie was a level above in the third and final set, dropping only two points as he took a 4-0 lead and eventually rounded off the win on his first match point.
Evans had to be at his best to come from a break down in the opening set to level the scores at 2-2 in a long game off the Argentinian’s serve. They went all the way to a tie-break where unforced errors told – Cerundolo’s 19 vs Evans’ seven throughout the set.
An early double break to start the second gave Evans a 3-0 lead and despite clinching one back, the recovery proved too difficult for Cerundolo.
The third set took many twists and turns with seven breaks throughout. Despite it looking like Cerundolo might be able to complete the comeback from 3-0 down, Evans kept chipping away at the world No.45’s serve and let out a roar as he broke for the fourth and final time.
Both players were shaky on serve in the opening set, where we saw six breaks and under 60% first serves on either end of the court. But the 19-year-old French star held the early advantage after racing to a 3-0 lead and Watson was unable to catch her, despite hitting 20 winners.
Jacquemot continued to return well in the second set, breaking on the fifth time of asking in the first game and piling the pressure on Watson at the back of the court. The British No.2 got back on level terms, but errors proved costly for Watson in the eighth game as the French star got the all-important break before serving out the match.
An impressive first set from the Italian, saw her win the first six games with 75% of points off Dart’s second serve.
Dart managed to open her account midway through the second set for 3-1 after a series of closely fought games, but the world No.59 eventually closed out her victory with the fifth and final break of the match.
