The First British Man To Win A Singles Title At The Australian Open 2016 Is Wheelchair Player Gordon Reid
Gordon Reid has won his first Grand Slam singles title by beating Joachim Gerard 7-6 (9-7) 6-4 in the wheelchair final at the Australian Open.
Scotland’s Reid was backed by a vocal group of friends and he said he would be “buying them drinks all night”.
He added: “It’s amazing to showcase our sport and I want to thank everyone.”
Unfortunately, Same Difference can now report that Reid and his doubles partner have just lost their doubles final.
As tennis fans, we at Same Difference send sincere congratulations to Angelique Kerber, who has just won the women’s singles title.
We also send our best wishes to Jamie Murray for his doubles final and Andy Murray for tomorrow’s men’s singles final.
