Scotland’s Gordon Reid has reached his third French Open and 11th successive Grand Slam doubles final in Paris.
Reid, alongside his partner Alfie Hewett, recovered from 3-0 down in a deciding match tie-break to claim a tense victory against Spanish duo Daniel Caverzaschi and Martín de la Puente on Friday at Roland Garros.
They will now play Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina and Shingo Kunieda of Japan in Saturday’s final in Paris as they bid for a third French Open title in a row.
Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Reid, from Glasgow, said: “It’s been a while, but some things never change.
“We went tight in our third set by now it honestly feels great to be back playing with Alfie.
“We’ve put a lot of work into it over the years, so obviously we come to Slams and that’s where we want it to show.
“(I am) a little bit more tired than I probably usually would be at this stage in a tournament, but I’m really happy to get over the line there and we look forward to another final.”
The dup broke the record for most successful doubles’ partnership at the Grand Slams when they beat won at Melbourne Park in January, and they will now attempt to win an unprecedented tenth major in a row.
