Andy Lapthorne celebrates sealing his spot in the singles final

Britain’s Andy Lapthorne booked his spot in the first-ever quad wheelchair singles final at Wimbledon with a powerhouse performance which saw him claim victory over world No 2 David Wagner in straight sets.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his 7-5 6-4 semi-final victory, Lapthorne said: “It’s amazing and an honour to play at Wimbledon, and then to play and execute the match against David the way I did under probably the biggest pressure I’ve ever been under was incredible.

“David is a good player and when you go up against him, it’s kill or be killed – but I just felt comfortable out there and I felt like I’d been playing here for 10 years already.
