Who is the 23-Grand Slam winner Alfie Hewett: the most decorated British tennis player in history?

The ex-world number 1 in singles and 23-Grand Slam champion (7 singles titles and now 16 in doubles) Brit Alfie Hewett is having another excellent year. He won the titles both in Wheelchair Singles and Wheelchair Doubles at the 2023 Australian Open. Hewett also reached the 2023 French Open finals both in singles and doubles. He lost the Singles final in Paris though and this is why he also lost the top spot in the singles world rankings.

On all his triumphs and huge dominance over the last 7 years, the Brit Alfie Hewett is missing one trophy. Hewett is a 3-time singles winner of both the French and the US Opens, he won his first Australian Open title earlier this year but he has never won Wimbledon in singles. Let’s find out more about what Alfie himself calls ‘My Wimbledon curse’.

Alfie Hewett and his Wimbledon curse

Alfie Hewett made his debut back in 2015, from 2016 onward he has been a dominant force in any wheelchair tennis events and in just 7 years he amassed 23 Grand Slam titles. However, of all his successes the one title Alfie has never won is the Wimbledon wheelchair singles trophy.

Hewett’s average win percentage ratio for the other 3 Grand Slams is over 75% for his career. Yet, at Wimbledon, he has only a 40% win ratio with a 4-6 record. In his 6 attempts to win the Wimbledon singles, Hewett made the final only once, just last year when he was beaten in the match for the title by the retrying Japanese superpower Shingo Kunieda.

Alfie still believes that he can lift this ‘Wimbledon curse’ and add the single trophy still missing from his bulging cabinet. After all, he is a 4-time Wimbledon champion in doubles!

Alfie Hewett Gentlemen’s Wheelchair Singles Results:

Round 1 Hewett vs Gerard 6-3, 6-4

Alfie’s quest for the elusive 1st single’s Wimbledon title began with a tough test against the world number 3 Joachim Gerard. The Belgian was always going to be a tough opponent and Alfie looked nervous all match.

Hewett managed to triumph in straight sets but his win wasn’t pretty and there were some very alarming takes from this display. Hewett’s serve was pretty poor. He hit only 2 aces on 8 double faults. Also, Hewett won just 38% of the points on his 2nd serve. Really, Gerard could have easily forced a deciding set in this contest but a series of sloppy errors from the Belgian helped Hewett to progress.

To stand a chance of lifting the title Alfie will have to be serving much better going forward.

Hewett Injury update: Healthy and fully fit

Looking perfectly fit. Moving great on the court and his hands have been as strong as ever, allowing him to hit lots of winners.

The amazing all-British partnership Hewett/Reid going for a lucky 7

Alfie Hewett has won 16 Grand Slams in doubles, all together with his British partner Gordon Reid. The two Brits are undeniably the best pair to ever play wheelchair doubles and at the 2023 Wimbledon, they will be attempting to reach their 16th consecutive Grand Slam final.

Yes, Hewett/Reid made it to the title match of the Wimbledon Wheelchair Men’s Doubles in all of the last 6 editions of the tournament. They won the title in 4 of these 6 finals, but in 2022 they lost to Kunieda/Fernandez.

Hewett’Reid already lifted the trophies in Australia and France so they are still on course to a Golden Grand Slam, winning all 4 Grand Slams in the same year. The unstoppable British pair did that once already back in 2021.

Hewett 2023 Wimbledon Prediction – winner both in singles and doubles

We believe that Alfie Hewett’s long wait for the Wimbledon Wheelchair Singles title will finally come to an end this year. He and his partner Reid are also the favourites to win the doubles event. We think Hewett will fly back home with 2 trophies in his bag.
