Gordon Reid was denied a sixth successive US Open men’s wheelchair doubles title by Nicolas Peifer and Martin de la Puente.

Reid, alongside partner Alfie Hewett, were beaten 4-6 7-5 10-6 at the Louis Armstrong Stadium in New York on Saturday.

The 15-time Grand Slam wheelchair doubles champions took the first set but lost to France’s Peifer and Spain’s De la Puente in a match tie-break.

Hewett will now contest the men’s wheelchair singles final on Sunday.

The British pair previously saw their run of 10 consecutive Grand Slam wheelchair doubles titles come to an end at Wimbledon in July.
