Gordon Reid’s wait for British Open success goes on after he was eliminated in the semi-final by fellow Brit Alfie Hewett in Nottingham last week.

The Helensburgh world number two received a bye in the first round before a 6-4, 6-2 win over Brazil’s Daniel Rodrigues in the second round.

Next up for Reid was world number four Stephane Houdet, in a seesaw match the Paralympic champion came through in three sets 7-5, 1-6, 6-2.

That victory set up an all-British semi-final clash with Alfie Hewett as both were out to become the first British player to win the men’s singles in the event’s 28-year history.

Hewett defeated his Rio 2016 doubles teammate in an enthralling encounter..

In a rollercoaster match, world number three Hewett started strongly to take the first set 6-3.

But Reid hit back to win the second with the loss of only one game. Reid looked to be on course to take the win at 3-2 in the third but Hewett reeled off four games in succession to see out a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 victory.

Reid and Hewett teamed up in the doubles and again there was a semi-final knockout for the Burgh star.

World number one Gustavo Fernandez, who beat Hewett in the singles final, and Dutchman Maikel Scheffers proved too good over three close sets as they took a 3-6, 6-1, 7-5 win.
