It is a case of one down, one to go for Norfolk's Alfie Hewett as he claimed what he hopes will be the first of two Wimbledon titles after triumphing in the men’s doubles final alongside Gordon Reid.

It was a busy day for Hewett at SW19, starting on Saturday with his singles semi-final, which had been postponed after heavy rain across Friday. 

But it was ultimately light work for the 25-year-old, who eased past Martin de la Puente in straight sets to set up a Sunday showdown with world number one Tokito Oda.

However, there was no time for Hewett to rest on his laurels, returning to Court One just a couple of hours later alongside Reid for their final against unseeded duo Oda and Takuya Miki.

The British duo struggled early on but rallied to force a decider, and eventually closed out a 3-6 6-0 6-3 victory, much to the delight of a packed Court One crowd.

It was the biggest stage the doubles final has ever been held on, making it particularly sweet for Hewett, from Cantley.

“That was something else - I’ve got goosebumps,” he said.

“This is probably the first time I’ve experienced something like this and this was an incredible experience for us. 

“We dream of atmospheres like this and it doesn’t really come around often, so we rose to the occasion today and gave the crowd something to cheer about.

“Massive congratulations to Tokito and Takuya, that was a strong performance and they really pushed us.”

Reid added: “Me and Alfie were saying while we were waiting to pick the trophy up, that at match point we were tearing up a little bit, because the atmosphere was electric. 

“My first Wimbledon was in 2008 in front of three men and his dog, my mum and my sister. If you’d told me then we’d be on Court 1 in front of a nearly full stadium, with a crowd going absolutely berserk, I would never have believed it. 

“It was an incredible atmosphere and an incredible moment for wheelchair tennis.”

All attention for Hewett will now switch to Sunday’s final against Oda, an opponent he has become very familiar with.

Oda defeated the Norwich ace in the French Open final to claim the world number one ranking, though Hewett prevailed in the Australian Open final back in January.

Victory for Hewett would surely see him banish the demons of his heartbreaking final defeat 12 months ago, where he served for the match four times before tasting defeat, and would also see him complete the career Grand Slam.
