British quad player Andy Lapthorne, 28, enjoyed a triumphant US Open earlier this September, winning not only the doubles but also the singles trophy. Andy beat Australian world No.1 Dylan Alcott in the singles convincingly 6-1 6-0, but teamed up with him to win the quad doubles title. Andy lost to Alcott in the Wimbledon singles finals, but at Flushing Meadows his play was just too strong for the opponents, putting a stop to Alcott’s dreams about winning the calendar Grand Slam of tennis. After the win Andy said how “it’s great to go back-to-back and really put down a marker of where I want to be. Two titles and all the other top 4 players defeated on this trip is really great.”
Having spent four months off earlier this year due to breaking a wrist at the Australian Open, and relying on a wild card for Wimbledon, Andy truly showed everyone he is worthy of the faith being put in him.
Andy won the US Open title back in 2014 and is a multi-medal winning Paralympic athlete as well – Sporting Agenda & Wimbledon Debenture Tickets are proud to be sponsoring Andy’s talent on his road to Tokyo 2020.
