Britain’s Gordon Reid recorded the biggest win of his career to reach the semi-finals of the men’s wheelchair tennis at the Australian Open.

The Scot, 24, beat eight-time winner and former world number one Shingo Kunieda 6-3 7-6 (7-1).

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” said Reid, who described his Japanese opponent as “a legend of our game”.

Reid, ranked fourth in the world, now plays Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez for a place in the final.
