Wimbledon 2024: Alfie Hewett to face Ben Bartram in first round as wheelchair draws are announced

• 2 MINUTE READ

Alfie Hewett, Gordon Reid and Ben Bartram have all been drawn in the bottom half of the men’s wheelchair singles draw Wimbledon, with Hewett and Bartram set to face each other for the second time in a fortnight when play gets underway at the All England Club on Tuesday.

The two Norfolk players had never met before going head-to-head recently at the Rothesay International Eastbourne and 18-year-old Bartram, whose journey into wheelchair tennis was inspired Hewett, will now face the world No.2 on his Wimbledon debut.

Reid will take a 3-1 head-to-head lead in grass court matches into his first round match against Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez as they also meet for the second time this grass court season. Reid had not lost to Fernandez in three grass court meetings before their semi-final at last week’s Lexus British Open Roehampton, where Fernandez won the British Open men’s title for the second time.

Tuesday’s meeting between 2016 Wimbledon champion Reid and 2019 Wimbledon champion Fernandez will be their third at The Championship with Reid having won their 2021 semi-final and their quarter-final last year. Should Reid win their latest encounter the  a semi-final meeting with doubles partner Hewett could be on their cards later this week.

Hewett and Reid will open their bid for a sixth Wimbledon doubles title against Martin de la Puente and Joachim Gerard, last week’s Lexus British Open Roehampton champions and the partnership that Bartram and Spain’s Dani Caverzaschi came within two points of defeating in last week’s semi-finals at Roehampton.

Bartram and Caverzaschi pair up for the second time this week at Wimbledon and open their men’s doubles campaign against Fernandez and Chile’s Alexander Cataldo.
