Hewett and Whiley into Masters semi-finals
Alfie Hewett is one step closer to winning back his NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters title after beating Stefan Olsson to progress to Sunday’s semi-final.
The Brit, who won the competition in Loughborough back in 2017, beat his Swedish opponent 6-4 6-2 his last men’s singles pool match to progress to semi-final, where he will face Japan’s Shingo Kaneda.
In the women’s singles, Jordanne Whiley also progressed to the semi-finals by beating Kgothatso Montjane.
In her last pool match against South Africa’s Montjane it was winner takes all and the Brit battled hard to come out on top, coming back from a set down to win 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.
Whiley then returned in the doubles alongside compatriot Lucy Shuker and once again defeated Montjane, who was paired with German Katharina Kruger, 6-2 6-3 in their play-off.
Meanwhile it wasn’t to be for Gordon Reid, the Brit losing 3-6, 6-0, 6-1 in his final pool match to Joachim Gerard.
Andy Lapthorne also experienced disappointment in the quad doubles alongside Dutch partner Sam Schroder.
The pairing went down 7-6 (6) 7-6 (4) to Heath Davidson and Niels Vink of Australia and the Netherland, respectively.
