Which British players be competing at the Cajun Classic 2024?

Eight Brits will contest the Cajun Classic across the men’s, women’s and quad singles and doubles draws. Three-time champion Alfie Hewett is set to begin the men’s singles as second seed, as last year’s quarter-finalist goes in search of a fourth title in Baton Rouge following the successful defence of his Georgia Open title over the weekend.

Hewett won his first of two titles in Baton Rouge in 2017 and 2018 before his most recent victory in 2022 saw the British No.1 return to the world No.1 ranking for what was then the second time in his career. He starts this year’s tournament as world No.2.

Hewett won the 2017 men’s doubles title in Baton Rouge partnering Dutchman Maikel Scheffers, but partners fellow Brit Gordon Reid again this year after the top seeds and 19-time Grand Slam champions won their first Cajun Classic title together last year.

A semi-finalist last year, Reid is also a former singles champion, having won the 2014 Cajun Classic title before winning the 2016 doubles title with Sweden’s Stefan Olsson. Andrew Penney makes his Cajun Classic debut this year.

British No.1 Lucy Shuker and British No.3 Cornelia Oosthuizen will both contest the women’s singles and doubles, having paired up recently to win their first doubles title together at the Bolton Indoor ITF 2. Martha Harris will also contest both women's draws.

Shuker’s career-highlights in Baton Rouge date back to 2009 when she won the first of two back-to-back doubles titles partnering Dutchwoman Aniek van Koot. Shuker added a third Cajun Classic doubles title in 2015 and a fourth in 2018. The Brit finished runner-up in 2022, partnering American Dana Mathewson, with the pair also reaching the semi-finals together last year.

Britain is also represented in the quad singles and doubles by Andy Lapthorne and Greg Slade, who recently secured a clean sweep of the quad singles and doubles titles between them at the Bolton Indoor ITF 3 and ITF 2 tournaments and reached the singles and doubles finals at the Georgia Open.

Slade made his Cajun Classic debut last year and will hope to improve on an early singles loss, while 2023 quarter-finalist Lapthorne will set out to try and win his second singles title after first being victorious in 2012.

British No.1 and world No.8 Lapthorne has also won three quad doubles titles at the tournament, lifting the silverware in 2015 and 2017 with fellow Brits Jamie Burdekin and Antony Cotterill, respectively, before partnering American David Wagner to win again in 2022.
