Gordon begins US Open campaign Featured

Written by Marshall Thomas

HELENSBURGH Tennis Club's Gordon Reid will play at the Arthur Ashe Stadium when the 10th US Open Wheelchair Tennis Competition gets underway later today in New York.

Gordon and doubles partner Alfie Hewett could potentially meet in the men’s singles semi-finals after being drawn in the same half of the draw.

But the Rio Paralympic silver medallists and two-time Wimbledon champions first team up for today’s men’s doubles semi-final against Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez and Shingo Kunieda of Japan.

They will be hoping to reverse the result of their doubles semi-final in St. Louis at the weekend, which Fernandez and Kunieda won narrowly.

World no.2 and former Australian Open and Wimbledon men’s singles champion Gordon will play Belgium’s Joachim Gerard in his men’s singles quarter-final.

He holds a 3-1 lead over Gerard in Grand Slam head-to-heads to date, his wins including their quarter-final in New York in 2013 and the 2016 Australia Open final.
