Dylan Alcott and Andy Lapthorne (GBR) have combined to win the inaugural quad doubles title at Wimbledon.
With Alcott maintaining his unbeaten run in 2019, the duo defeated Japan’s Koji Sugeno and the USA’s David Wagner 6-2, 7-6(4).
They will now go from friends to foes as they prepare to clash in tonight’s quad singles final.
“To Andy – thanks for playing doubles with me, brother,” Alcott said. “We’re playing in the singles final tomorrow so I hope I pump you.”
Alcott’s win in the doubles means the world No. 1 is now undefeated in 17 matches in 2019, currently boasting win-loss records of 11-0 in the singles and 6-0 in the doubles.
He arrived in the singles final at Wimbledon after a 6-3, 6-4 win over Sugeno in Thursday’s (11 July) semi-finals.
