Norfolk’s British number one Alfie Hewett showed he is in impressive form heading towards the season climax at the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters later this month when winning the Bath Indoor men’s singles title.
Hewett beat Wimbledon champion Stefan Olsson of Sweden 6-0, 6-4, to join Diede de Groot of Holland and American David Wager in claiming singles titles at the latest UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour event.
“I’ve taken time off to train and work really hard since reaching the US Open final a couple of months ago and to perform the way I have this week is really pleasing,” said Hewett, 19, from Cantley.
“This is probably the best match I’ve played all week. So it’s good to see myself progressing heading into Doubles Masters next week and it’s a great confidence boost ahead of the NEC Masters the week after. It was a good first set from me. I was solid, but I knew Stefan would come back and I won a crucial game at 4-2 down to hold and then I was back in the match.”
