Highlights: 

Day six: Hewett pipped to the title by Oda in men's singles final

Alfie Hewett’s bid for a third French Riviera Open men’s singles title ended in a 7-5, 6-3 loss to Japanese second seed Tokito Oda in Sunday’s final in Biot, France.

With his clay court season over, Hewett will now head into the new-look British wheelchair grass court season.

The champion in Biot in 2020 and 2021, top seed Hewett’s quest for his latest Super Series title started impressively as he opened up a 5-2 lead on Oda. However, having had a set point in the eighth game and serving for the opening set on two occasions, Hewett was unable to get over the line against a resilient Oda.

Hewett’s powers of recovery in big finals is almost legendary and although he battled back from 4-0 down in the second set to claim back-to-back games before saving a total of five match points, he was unable to prevent Oda from notching up his fifth ace of the match on the Japanese player’s sixth match point.
