Three-time French Open winner Alfie Hewett moved into the semi-finals of the men's wheelchair singles with a 6-0 6-4 victory over fellow Briton Gordon Reid.

Hewett, who won this competition in 2017, 2020 and 2021, only needed 74 minutes to beat his compatriot and set up a semi-final against two-time champion Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina.

British 26-year-old Hewett is aiming to win his ninth singles title at a Grand Slam, having also won the US Open on four occasions and the Australian Open once.

Later on Wednesday, Hewett and Reid teamed up to reach the semi-finals of the men's wheelchair doubles, beating Dutch duo Tom Egberink and Maikel Scheffers 6-2 6-0 in the last eight.

Top seeds Hewett and Reid are aiming for their fifth successive victory after Roland Garros title wins each year since 2020.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment in the men's quad singles for Britain's world number six and 2020 runner-up Andy Lapthorne as he lost 6-1 6-3 in his quarter-final against Dutch second seed Sam Schroder.
