Two British wheelchair tennis players are looking forward to finals at the Melbourne Wheelchair Tennis Open.

The ITF Series 1 competition is running concurrently with the Australian Open at Hume Tennis & Community Centre.

It's been a wonderful week for Alfie Hewett, who has followed up a final appearance at the Tweed Heads International Wheelchair Open last weekend with another final tomorrow.

Seeded third in Australia, Hewett stunned number one seed and world number two Gustavo Fernandez from Argentina in their semi-final, 6-4, 6-3.

He will face Belgian Joachim Gerard, seeded fifth, in the final.

Gerard also pulled off a surprise win in the semi-final, defeating Japanese second seed Shingo Kunieda 7-5, 6-1.

In the women's event, fourth seed Jordanne Whiley is also following up a final at Tweed Heads with an outstanding series of results.

She defeated Japan's Momoko Ohtani in the semi-final in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4.

The possibility of an all-British final was ended by number one seed Yui Kamji of Japan, who beat Lucy Shuker 6-1, 6-3 in her semi-final.
