Great Britain’s Gordon Reid and Japanese partner Shingo Kunieda secured their place in the Australian Open men’s wheelchair doubles final after beating Argentina’s Gustavo Fernandez and Belgium’s Joachim Gerard in the last four.

Reid teamed up with Kunieda, who he beat in the quarter-finals of the men’s singles, as the second seeds claimed a 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 victory to set up a showdown against French duo Stéphane Houdet and Nicholas Peifer tomorrow.

The victory came just a day after Reid had beaten Fernandez to advance to the men’s singles final.

"Obviously I’m very happy to get the win after such a gruelling singles last night," Reid said.

"My body was definitely tired so I was thankful that Shingo produced a dominating performance to help us win in straight sets.

"The conditions were difficult with the lengthy rain delays but we kept our focus well and I can't wait to get back out on court."

Reid faces Belgium’s Joachim Gerard in tomorrow’s men’s singles decider, marking a first-career singles Grand Slam final for both.

Dutch pair Aniek van Koot and Jiske Griffioen will battle for the women’s singles crown before joining forces to meet the pairing of Japan’s Yuji Kamiji and The Netherlands’ Marjolein Buis for the women’s doubles title.

"We’re used to it, we do it all the time," said Griffioen, who is the defending women’s singles champion and top seed.

"I’m happy it is in the final and not in one of the previous rounds because it’s not very fun to play your doubles partner before that.

"It’s going to be another good fight.

"I will have to play my best tennis."

The third day of round robin matches in the quad division saw Australia’s Dylan Alcott maintain his perfect record with a 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 win over South Africa’s Lucas Sithole.

Britain’s Andy Lapthorne defeated the United States’ David Wagner 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 in the other match, but it's his opponent who will go up against Alcott in tomorrow's final having finished second in the group table.
