Australia’s Heath Davidson beat world number one and home favourite David Wagner in straight sets today to reach the quad singles final at the US Open United States Tennis Association Wheelchair Championships in St Louis.
Fourth seed Davidson, who is the world number five, picked up a 7-6, 6-2 win at the Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park to secure a place in his first Super Series final.
It was his second win in a week over Wagner, who he beat at last weekend’s final at the International Tennis Federation 1 Series Birmingham Canadian Classic.
Awaiting Davidson in the final is Great Britain’s Andy Lapthorne, who beat world number four Lucas Sithole 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 to repeat his win over the South African from last month's British Open Championships semi-finals in Nottingham.
Davidson has yet to beat world number two Lapthorne, but he will look to change that when they go up against each other tomorrow.
Lapthorne will be contesting his second-straight Super Series singles final.
Argentina’s Gustavo Fernández remains on track for a possible hat-trick of Super Series titles after booking his place in the men’s singles final against France’s Stéphane Houdet.

It sets up a rematch of last year’s US Open Super Series final against fourth seed and defending champion Houdet, who beat Japan’s Shingo Kunieda 6-4, 7-5.
Houdet won last year’s final 6-3, 6-3, which marks his most recent victory over Fernández.
In the women’s doubles final, Japan’s Yui Kamiji and Britain’s Lucy Shuker completed a thrilling comeback to beat Dutch top seeds Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot 2-6, 6-2 7-6.

Top seeds Lapthorne and Wagner claimed the quad doubles title without dropping a single game, beating second seeds Antony Cotterill of Britain and Davidson with their third-straight 6-0, 6-0 victory of the week.
