Alfie Hewett quickly put the disappointment of his French Open quarter final exit behind him to look forward to the doubles campaign that kicks off this afternoon.

Hewett missed out on defending his Parisian crown further than the opening round after partner and fellow Brit Gordon Reid emerged on top 6-4, 6-4, but is still in contention for his first Roland Garros doubles title.

“It was a close match,” Hewett began.

“I think it was quite even. It was a few points that really decided it. At the end of the day, Gordon played the bigger points better than I did.

“We have our doubles, so we’ve prepared the same way we always prepare and really want to get that title this year,” Hewett admitted.
