Andy Lapthorne: From wildcard winner to Wimbledon champion and beyond | Tennis News |

Britain’s Andy Lapthorne teamed up with Dylan Alcott of Australia to win the men’s wheelchair doubles at Wimbledon

A week ago Britain’s Andy Lapthorne went through the gates of the All England Club as a wildcard in the first quads division draw – and four days later he left a Wimbledon champion.

It’s an experience the British No 1, who is a passionate advocate for equality for the quads division, has described as “amazing”, “a dream come true” and something he has “loved every minute of” as he was crowned the first Wimbledon doubles champions in the division alongside Australia’s Dylan Alcott.

Making it all way to the singles final, where he eventually finished as a runner-up to Alcott, also saw him extend his impressive win-loss record, having only lost three competitive matches since his return to the tour in May after injury.
