Day fourteen: Hewett and Lapthorne both finish as runners-up on finals Sunday

Alfie Hewett finished as the runner-up in this year’s Wimbledon men’s wheelchair singles event after losing a high-quality final against world No.1 Shingo Kunieda 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 [10-5].

Kunieda clinched the first Wimbledon singles title of his career and 50th major trophy in an epic three hour and 20 minute battle with the British No.1.

It was a tough loss for the Hewett, who had led by a set and 5-4, and then found himself up 5-2 in the decider, but Kunieda showed incredible mental strength to fight back and win the only title missing from his impressive collection.

In a masterclass of returning, the match quickly became a battle of who could hold their serve – both players rifling winners left, right and centre off the return. Facing break points once again at 5-4 up, Hewett capitalised on an uncharacteristic backhand volley miss from, before finishing off the set with a brace of brilliant backhands and a huge roar to the crowd.

The Brit took a 2-0 lead to start the second, but Kunieda hit a hot streak, winning 12 of the next 13 points to wrestle his way back in. Hewett had the chance to serve out the match at 5-4, but Kunieda went after the Brit’s serve, hitting three clean winners to level once more and finally got his hold to eventually see out the second set.

The British No.1 had to come through a tough three-set match in the semi-final but showed no signs of fatigue in the decider as he raced to a 3-0 and eventually a 5-2 lead. But the Japanese star showed his quality when it mattered most and got his only hold of the set as the match went to a deciding match tie-break.

In an afternoon of comebacks for Kunieda, it was only fitting that he won seven consecutive points from 5-3 down to seal a historic win.

Reigning champions Andy Lapthorne and David Wagner lost out in a closely fought quad doubles final on Court 1 to Niels Vink and Sam Schroder 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-3 in two hours and 22 minutes.

The reigning champions looked to have an edge over the Dutch team in the opening set, racing to a 4-1 lead and capitalising on a series of errors, but Vink and Schroder dug deep to force their way back in. On they went to a tie-break where the British, American duo started to break away from 3-3. Wagner's serve clipped the line by a fraction of a millimetre for an ace to solidify a 5-3 lead before Schroder hit a couple costly errors to hand the second seeds the set.

Vink and Schroder - who had competed in the singles final earlier in the day - came back firing in the second set. At 3-2 up they broke Lapthorne to love with a trio of strong returns, followed by a cool and calm winner straight through the middle of the last year's champions. Ramping up the pressure once more, they completed a double break to finish the set thanks to a brilliant, outstretched winner from Schroder.

But more twists and turns lay ahead with Lapthorne and Wagner wrestling back their lead at the start of the decider, only to lose it in the next game. However, the match felt all but over once the Dutch team broke the Brit once more for a 5-2 lead and the top seeds rounded off their win with a stunning passing shot down the line.
