Two-time Paralympic silver medallist Andy Lapthorne made history as the first Briton to reach a quad wheelchair tennis final at Wimbledon.
The 28-year-old beat American David Wagner 7-5 6-4 as quad wheelchair tennis made its competitive debut at Wimbledon.
He will play his Australian doubles partner Dylan Alcott on Saturday.
But Paralympic champion Gordon Reid and fellow Briton Jordanne Whiley both lost their opening singles ties.
Reid, 27, struggled against Japanese top seed Shingo Kunieda in the men’s wheelchair singles quarter-finals, losing 6-1 6-1.
Whiley, returning to Wimbledon for the first time since having her son, lost 6-4 6-1 to Yui Kamiji.
She will team up with Japan’s Kamiji in the women’s doubles, and the pair are aiming for a fifth title together at SW19.
