Britain's Alfie Hewett was victorious in the men's wheelchair singles final against top seed Shingo Kunieda of Japan at the French Open at Roland-Garros in Paris, defending his title from last year.

Hewett defeated the former world number one 6-3, 6-4 to win his third French Open singles title and his fifth Grand Slam singles title.

It follows on from his doubles win yesterday with compatriot Gordon Reid.

In the quad wheelchair men's singles final, Australian top seed Dylan Alcott expectedly claimed another Grand Slam title in straight sets 6-4, 6-2 against The Netherlands' Sam Schröder.

It is his third straight singles title at the French Open since the discipline debuted in 2019, and his 16th Grand Slam singles title. 

Ending the day in wheelchair tennis was the women's doubles, with Dutch top seeds Diede de Groot and Aniek van Koot winning their fourth straight title at the competition.

They defeated second seeds Japan's Yui Kamiji and Britain's Jordanne Whiley 6-3, 6-4.
