GORDON REID faces a tough start to his bid for singles and doubles glory at Wimbledon when the men's wheelchair tournaments get under way at SW19 today (Wednesday).

The former Hermitage Academy pupil has been drawn against third seed Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina in the first round of the singles, due to be the second match on Court 14 at Wimbledon on July 10.

The 32-year-old will be out for revenge after losing 6-4, 6-4 to Fernandez in the last four of the final Wimbledon warm-up event, the Lexus British Open Roehampton, last week.

Reid saw off Spain's Daniel Caverzaschi 6-3, 6-0 in the first round and Tom Egberink of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-2 in the last eight, but found Fernandez too tough a nut to crack in the last four as the Argentinian won through to the final, where he was awarded a walkover win after Reid's fellow Brit Alfie Hewett withdrew.

The winner of Wednesday's Reid-Fernandez tie will face either Egberink or Casey Ratzlaff of the United States in the quarter-final.

Reid and Hewett weren't in doubles action at Roehampton, opting instead to keep their powder dry ahead of their bid for a sixth Wimbledon doubles title and what would be a 21st Grand Slam championship as a pair.

The draw for the doubles at the All England Club has handed Reid and Hewett, the tournament's top seeds, a quarter-final against Martin De la Puente of Spain and Belgium's Joachim Gerard, with the winners set to face either the Dutch pairing of Egberink and Maikel Scheffers or Stephane Houdet of France and Japan's Takashi Sanada in the last four.
