Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett storm to US Open doubles final; Andy Lapthorne on a roll

As Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid stormed their way in their third men’s doubles last while the entire world toppled No 2 in less than one hour in the quad division a sweep was of success for gamers at the US Open.
Hewett and Reid dropped four points from the first four games in a rematch of the two finals defending champions. They continued their domination speed to your 6-0 6-3 victory over French duo Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer.
“It’s not what we expected to occur but I’m glad we can win with this scoreline and because style,” Reid told Sky Sports. “Of course we understand when we play well we could place people away but to be honest I do not think that was exactly what happened in that first set, I believe we only did the basics extremely well and maybe got off to a quicker start than those.”
It was a match where they revealed the difficult work they were putting in from competition and also one where consistency has been the key to their own success.
“I felt we were pretty strong at the beginning and we didn’t give away too many cheap things and once we do we create opportunities so in the second group when they gave us a whole lot more to consider we responded well, did not get tight and played our game,” said Hewett.
They will confront Shingo Kunieda and Gustavo Fernandez in Saturday’s final and wish to make it a hat-trick of names in New York.
On court , Lapthorne also worked his magic from David Wagner, shooting 59 minutes to dispatch the 6-1 – his most comprehensive win over Wagner in their 62 livelihood meetings.
“Hard work pays off and also to start to eventually carry out the manner I have been doing day in, day out in training is pretty special,” explained Lapthorne.
“There were glimpses of it at Wimbledon and the British Open and since I’ve had a terrific week coaching in Tokyo and to interpret what I’ve been performing on the practice court to a huge stage against a good player I have set myself in a fantastic place to hopefully move into the number two spot in the ranks.”
It was a performance that found a plenty in one and the Brit at which he looked calm and collected from start to finish.
“I don’t understand what it is but because the harm I have come back and I am getting far more nervous than I used to,” he explained. “Maybe it is because when you’re out because of an injury you realise just how much you really miss it.
“For me though it’s just understanding that when I get nervous I play nicely so I’m not attempting to get rid of the nerves, I’m just accepting them.”
