First Grand Slam win at the French Open

Long term VIS scholarship holder, Dylan Alcott has made history as the first Roland Garros 2019 Quad Singles Champion over the weekend. Defeating long-time American rival David Wagner 6-2 4-6 6-2 in the French Open final, made this Alcott’s 8th Grand Slam win.

Alcott took to twitter to thank his fans and mentioned what “an honour to be the first ever Roland Garros Quad Wheelchair Champion”.

Alcott will be hoping to win Wimbledon's first-ever quad wheelchair tennis title next month making him the first player to hold all four Slams simultaneously.
