French Open: Roland Garros Campaign Opens With Battle of the Brits


Words by Colette Carr 

British hopes of a title will take an early hit as British doubles pairing Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid were drawn against each other in the first round.

Reigning champion and world number one Hewett has the edge over the Scot in majors, beating Reid in their only Grand Slam match in 2017’s US Open, but Reid came out on top in May’s Japanese Open.

The qualifier is the second scheduled match after 10am BST.
