Hometown hero Dylan Alcott is in a league of his own having lifted an unprecedented fourth successive Australian Open men’s quad singles title, courtesy of a 7-6(1) 6-1 triumph over top seed David Wagner.
“I’m feeling awesome. Four in a row. Pretty good start. It’s been a big couple days, crazy two weeks. I was pretty glad I could top it off with a win. David played really well. In particular in the first set it was pretty close,” said an elated Alcott.
“It’s perfect. The support of Australia and the media and the press, it’s just so great to be part of.
“I do love this trophy. It’s beautiful. It’s just been a whirlwind five, six years. A lot of hard work.
The duo duelled in a pulsating two-and-a-half-hour battle in the round robin stages, when Alcott saved four match points, before three-time champion Wagner stole the victory.
However, Melbourne local Alcott would not be denied adding to his silverware haul in the final on Rod Laver Arena.
