Helensburgh’s Gordon Reid is through to the last four of the men's doubles at the Melbourne Wheelchair Tennis Open.

But the Burgh ace's bid for glory in the singles faltered at the quarter-final stage.

Reid, who lost the Melbourne Open singles final to Gustavo Fernandez last year, booked his place in the last eight of the men’s singles after overcoming China’s Chao Du 6-4 6-0 in the previous round.

But in the last warm-up tournament before the Australian Open later this month, Reid's run ended with a 6-4, 6-4 defeat to reigning Wimbledon champion Stefan Olsson in the quarter-finals.

In the doubles, however, Reid and his partner Alfie Hewett made it through to the semi-finals with a 6-2 6-0 win over Japan's Daisuke Arai and the Australian Keegan Oh-Chee.

In the last four they're looking for a third tournament win in a row over Olsson and Belgium's Joachim Gerard.

Should they battle through their semi-final in Melbourne, Reid and Hewett will then face either long-time rivals Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer of France or South African-Australian pairing Evans Maripa and Ben Weekes in the final.

Last week Reid and Hewett beat Gerard and Olsson 6-4, 6-4 to reach the final of the Sydney Wheelchair Tennis Open, before the British pair lost out to Houdet and Peifer in the final.

Back in November, Reid and Hewett ran out victors in three sets against the Belgian-Swedish duo in the second round of their three round-robin matches at the UNQILO Wheelchair Doubles Masters.
