Dylan Alcott completed his campaign at the 2019 Japan Open as quad singles and doubles champion on Saturday.

World No. 1 Alcott became quad singles champion at the third Super Series tournament of the year for the fourth time in five years after being awarded a walkover ahead of his scheduled final against world No. 2 David Wagner.

The contest was due to be the fifth successive Japan Open singles final between the two players. Alcott won a hat-trick of titles between 2015 and 2017 before Wagner beat the Australian in the 2018 final to become champion for the eighth time.

Alcott and fellow Australian Heath Davidson also made it a hat-trick of quad doubles titles in Iizuka, beating Korean Kyu-Seung Kim and Japan’s Koji Sugeno 6-1, 6-4.
