Britain’s Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid have secured their fourth successive Australian Open wheelchair doubles title, defeating Dutch duo Maikel Scheffers and Ruben Spaargaren.

Hewett, 25, and Reid, 31, won 6-1 6-2 in one hour and three minutes at Melbourne Park.

It is their 15th Grand Slam title together in doubles.

World number one Hewett plays 16-year-old Tokito Oda of Japan in the men’s singles final on Saturday.

Earlier on Friday, Brazilian pair Luisa Stefani and Rafael Matos won the mixed doubles title, defeating Indians Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna.

It is a first major success for both Stefani and Matos, who won 7-6 (7-2) 6-2.

A six-time Grand Slam winner in doubles, Mirza, 36, was making her final appearance in a major.

She was the first Indian to win a WTA singles title, in 2005 in Hyderabad.

In the junior girls’ singles semi-finals, Briton Ranah Stoiber lost 6-3 6-2 to Russian Mirra Andreeva.
