Alfie Hewett says he's full of pride after winning his eighth Grand Slam title at the US Open in New York

The pair, who have won 18 major titles together in doubles, previously faced each other in final of the 2016 Paralympic Games but it's the first time they've locked horns on tennis' biggest stage.

"It's not easy playing your doubles partner in a Grand Slam final, but it's nice to see him back where he belongs," said Hewett.

"It's the stuff of dreams to come here and play on a stadium court and to hold the trophy for a fourth time is something I'm very proud of."

It was a first US Open final for Reid, who is a two-time Grand Slam singles champion, claiming victory at Wimbledon and in Australia in 2016.
