HELENSBURGH Tennis Club's Gordon Reid had an unusual triumph yesterday — he won the LTA Fantasy Wheelchair Mixed Doubles Tournament with partner Louise Hunt.

They came back from a set down and 4-4 to beat second seeds Alfie Hewett and Lucy Shuker, who have two Paralympic silver medals and two Paralympic bronze medals between them, 5-7, 7-6, 7-5.

Earlier, in the quarter-final, Gordon and Louise (pictured) beat two-time Paralympic gold medallist Pete Norfolk and Sydney 2000 semi-finalist and multiple national champion Kim Blake 6-3, 6-3 to progress to the semi-finals, then secured a 7-5, 6-3 victory over the top seeds, eleven-time Grand Slam champion Jordanne Whiley and her fiancee Marc McCarroll.
