HELENSBURGH'S Gordon Reid saw his dream of a first Grand Slam singles title in almost three years ended in the final on Saturday.

Reid was beaten 6-1, 6-3 by the world number two, Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina, in the men's wheelchair singles final at Roland Garros.

The 28-year-old had reached the final in epic fashion, coming from a set down to beat Belgium's Joachim Gerard in the last eight before repeating the feat against world number one Shingo Kunieda in Friday's semi-final.

But a third successive win from behind proved a step to far for the former Hermitage Academy pupil in his first Grand Slam singles final since winning the Wimbledon men's title in 2016.

Earlier this summer, Reid and his team-mates Alfie Hewett and Dermot Bailey helped Great Britain win the World Team Cup in Israel.
