cinch Championships 2023: Alfie Hewett & Gordon Reid seal first … – Lawn Tennis Association

• 2 MINUTE READ
Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid came back from a set and 3-1 down to lift the cinch Championships wheelchair doubles title and their 41st career doubles title together on Sunday at The Queen’s Club after beating second seeds Joachim Gerard of Belgium and Stephane Houdet of France 1-6, 7-5, (10-3).
A first doubles title at The Queen’s Club for the top seeds and 17-time Grand Slam champions ended a mixed day for world No.2 Hewett, who had earlier lost a tight three-set singles final against Gerard, who became the first two-time winner of the singles title.
Hewett and Reid recovered from a slow start in the doubles final to win their fifth title on grass,  having previously won four titles at The Championships, Wimbledon.
Speaking on court after the victory, Reid said: “It’s the first time myself and Alfie have won this title on home soil here, so we’re really happy with that and it’s given us great preparation for Wimbledon, so hopefully we’ll see some of you (the crowd) there.”  
From a break down early in the singles final, Hewett rallied to gain the initiative, but he was unable to capitalise on a 3-1 second set lead as the match went to a deciding set. Hewett served for the title at 5-4 in the final set, but it was not to be for the 2019 victor and Gerard prevailed 4-6, 6-3. 7-5.

Hewett, who will bid to complete a singles career Grand Slam next month at the All England Club, said: “It was a very close match. I just want to thank my support team for the week. I hope we gave you all a good match. It’s always disappointing to lose when it is that close.”
For the second successive year the premier summer grass court tournaments include world ranking wheelchair tennis draws for men, women and quad players in the lead up to Wimbledon. Five Brits, including Lucy Shuker, Andy Lapthorne, Greg Slade, Abbie Breakwell and Ruby Bishop will now be among the entries for the women’s and quad draws that will be a feature of the Rothesay International Eastbourne from 29 June to 1 July.
As the grass court season comes to a close, let’s look back on some of the biggest highlights, British triumphs and most memorable moments from the last six weeks.
