The Scot has also won two Grand Slam singles titles, however he is yet to win the British Open singles title before and is bidding for a win on his home turf this year.

Speaking to the press ahead of the tournament, Reid said: “I’ve made a couple of finals. I’ve lost to Shingo (Kunieda) in the final here.

“It’s the British Open, it’s the first international event I ever played, back in 2005. I’ve come here for a long time but I’ve never won it, so I’ll be trying my best to do that obviously.”
