HELENSBURGH wheelchair tennis star Gordon Reid says he is “looking forward to the battle” as he prepares to compete in the semi-final of the BNP Paribas World Team Cup on Friday.

Reid is competing in Turkey this week as part of the Lexus GB World Team Cup men’s team.

The team are on course in their bid for a fourth men’s title and will play against France on Friday, May 10 as they aim to retain the prize they won in Portugal in 2023.

All four team members – Alfie Hewett, Gordon Reid, Ben Bartram, and Dahnon Ward - have contributed singles or doubles wins in 3-0 group victories against South Africa, Brazil, and Japan since the first day of competition on Tuesday, May 7.

Reid said: "We're all really pleased to be in the semi-finals again. All four players in the team have made a good contribution so far to getting where we are, and we haven't lost a match yet.

“So, it's so far so good and we're looking forward to a touch challenge against the French in the semis. We're ready and looking forward to the battle."

A 3-0 win over Japan on Thursday, May 9 confirmed the defending champions at the top of their round-robin group at the wheelchair equivalent of the Davis Cup and Billie Jean King Cup.

Great Britain’s long history of success in the World Team Cup included a first in 2023, when the men’s and junior teams lifted titles in the same year for the first time as both were crowned World Team Cup champions for the third time.

This year the junior team remain in contention to return to the semi-finals after Ruben Harris and Oliver Cox won both singles matches in Thursday’s 2-1 victory over the Netherlands.

After losing to the USA in the first of three round-robin group ties on Wednesday, May 8, Great Britain's juniors will now face Australia in their last group contest.

The GB quad and women’s teams will both play for fifth place over the course of the next three days.
