Alfie Hewett claimed his first Australian Open men’s wheelchair singles title by beating Tokita Oda.
Hewett dominated Japan’s Oda 6-3, 6-1 to add the individual crown to the fourth doubles title he won alongside Gordon Reid on Friday.
Runner-up in Melbourne in the past two years, an emotional Hewett broke down after winning his seventh Grand Slam singles title.
He now needs victory at Wimbledon to complete a career Grand Slam.
Hewett said: “Over the moon to get the victory. It has been a long time coming and a lot of hard work.
“To lose this tournament in the final for the last couple of years was heart-breaking and mentally challenging, so to get the opportunity to be back here and playing another singles final was something I was extremely motivated for.
“I had a very intense pre-season and thankfully it has paid off. I am delighted to get over the line this time. It is a massive weight off my shoulders and I can use the confidence for the rest of the year, and hopefully to get more success.”
