Highlights

Day six: Hewett and Reid clinch first doubles title of the year down under

Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid opened their 2024 doubles campaign with their latest major title after beating second seeds Joachim Gerard and Stephane Houdet 6-3, 1-6, (10-8) in the final to win their second Melbourne Wheelchair Open title.

Top seeds Hewett and Reid built on a 4-1 lead to take the opening set and made a fast start to the deciding match tie-break after opening up a 3-0 lead in their fourth career match against the Belgian, French pairing. However, Hewett and Reid - who are ranked the No.1 doubles pair in the world had to recover from 5-4 down before wrapping up their 45th men's doubles title together.

This victory places Hewett and Reid in perfect stead leading into their quest for a fifth successive Australian Open title.

However, it wasn't to be for Hewett earlier in the day in the singles event, with the world No.1 missing out to Tokito Oda 6-2, 7-6(6). Hewett found himself down 5-0 in the opening set of a high-quality final and Oda made the most of every opportunity to take time away from the Brit.

Despite Hewett battling back from 2-0 down to force a second set tie-break, Oda made a fast start to the break to eventually wrap up the title.
