Gordon in World Team Cup

Written by

HELENSBURGH'S Gordon Reid will represent Great Britain at the 2021 BNP Paribas World Team Cup in Sardinia from September 27 to October 3 — the International Tennis Federation’s flagship wheelchair tennis team event and the wheelchair tennis equivalent of the Davis Cup.

Great Britain has a long history of success in the World Team Cup, with the men’s team travelling to Italy as defending champions having won the 2019 title. That gold medal added to a silver for the juniors, bronze for the women’s team and a fourth place for the quad team to make it Great Britain’s most successful event in the event’s 37-year history.

Gordon, who has three World Team Cup titles to his name as a junior and senior player, said: “It’s 14 years since I won my first World Team Cup gold medal as part of a Great Britain junior team and for us to now be two-time men’s champions and multiple silver and bronze medallists is something I’m really proud of.

"On the back of the GB success in Tokyo and completing the calendar Grand Slam in doubles at the US Open I’m looking forward to getting our World Team Cup title defence underway.”
