Helensburgh’s Gordon Reid has ended another year at the top of the rankings, this time for doubles after an exceptional year.

The Burgh tennis ace went ahead of Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer in the doubles rankings and will end the year top of the pile.

Reid won the UNIQLO Wheelchair Doubles Masters in Bemmel with Alfie Hewett last week, adding to their Wimbledon and US Open titles earlier this season and meant he moved up to top spot.

In the men’s doubles final Hewett and Reid battled back from a set and 2-0 down to defeat Roland Garros champions Houdet and Peifer 1-6, 6-4, 7-5.

“It was another tough one," Reid said.

"We never do it the easy way against the French guys it seems, but it was great to pull through in the end and win our first Doubles Masters title together."

Reid had previously won the Doubles Masters twice before, with two different French partners – Houdet and Michael Jeremiasz.

“I think we were sitting too deep in the first set," he continued, "so we just tried to be more aggressive with our movement after that and it was a great comeback. It’s great to win my third Doubles Masters title, this time with Alfie.”

Hewett, for whom it was a first Doubles Masters title, added: “I think we just remained positive. We knew what we had to do to change the match – it just took us a while to find our rhythm and find ourselves within the match.

"But after we got a few games on the board we did well.”

Hewett and Reid were back in action this week at the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters in Loughborough.
