Gordon Reid beat defending champion and world number one Alfie Hewett in an all-British quarter-final of the men’s wheelchair singles at the French Open.

Scotland’s Reid came through 6-4 6-4 in 90 minutes against his doubles partner.

It was the first time the pair had been drawn together in the opening round of a Grand Slam.

Reid, who is looking for his third major singles title, will face Shingo Kunieda of Japan in the semi-finals at Roland Garros on Friday.

The Glasgow-born 26-year-old was a finalist in the competition in 2016, when he lost to Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina.
