Hewett reaches Roland Garros wheelchair singles final in straight sets
Alfie Hewett reached his sixth grand slam singles final with victory over defending champion Gustavo Fernandez in the wheelchair singles at the French Open.
In a rematch of the 2017 final at Roland Garros, Norfolk’s Hewett came through a very tight encounter, beating Argentinian Fernandez 7-6 (5) 7-5 after an hour and 48 minutes.
Hewett, who was beaten in the US Open final last month, is bidding for a fourth slam singles title.
In the final he will take on Belgian Joachim Gerard, who knocked out Hewett’s New York conqueror Shingo Kunieda in the last four.
In the quad division, Britain’s Andy Lapthorne is also through to the final after a 6-3 2-6 6-3 victory over American David Wagner.
