Hewett and Shuker take Bath titles

Alfie Hewett is hopeful of competing at Rio 2016.

Alfie Hewett and Lucy Shuker achieved Bath Indoor singles and doubles success as they gear up for the NEC Wheelchair Masters at the end of November.

Hewett defeated Wimbledon champion Stefan Olsson 6-0 6-4 to wrap up his third singles crown of 2017 in Somerset.

The 19-year-old said: "I’ve taken time off to train and work really hard since reaching the US Open final a couple of months ago and to perform the way I have this week is really pleasing.

"This is probably the best match I’ve played all week. 

“It was a good first set from me. I was solid, but I knew Stefan would come back and I won a crucial game at 4-2 down to hold and then I was back in the match.”

Earlier in the week, British number one Shuker partnered Dutch star Diede de Groot to victory in the doubles, defending their Rio 2016 title against Marjolein Buis and Sabine Ellerbrock, winning 6-0 7-5.

Hewett and Shuker will be back in action at the Wheelchair Masters competition, beginning on 29 November at the Loughborough Sport Tennis Centre.
