Reid falls short in French Open final
Paralympic champion Gordon Reid matched his best-ever performance at the French Open after losing in the final to Gustavo Fernandez.
The Rio 2016 gold medallist fell just short of a maiden title at Roland Garros as he was beaten 6-1 6-3 by the second seed.
It was a repeat of the final in Paris three years ago, with the Argentinian player securing the same result in straight sets.
Reid was put on the back foot from the start, with Fernandez breaking him in the opening game of the match.
The Brit rallied later in the first but was broken in consecutive games by the 27-year-old as he secured the opening set.
Reid looked more assured in the second, as it went with the serve until the eighth game, when Fernandez grabbed a crucial break to make it 5-3 and set himself up for victory – his second at Roland Garros.
The new champion beat another British player, Alfie Hewett, in straight sets in semi-finals on his way to the trophy in France.
