Dylan Alcott’s 2018 could not have been better.
The wheelchair tennis quad player made it four fabulous consecutive years winning the Australian Open singles trophy in 2018, when he emerged triumphant on home soil once more. He then joined forces with compatriot Heath Davidson to win the doubles title as well.
Alcott followed that up with titles at the US Open and the Singles Masters to return to world No. 1. He also led Australia to their second World Team Cup quad title in three years.
The Australian is well known for being among a unique group of athletes who have won Paralympic gold at two different Games in different sports.
Since his switch to wheelchair tennis he has been an absolute revelation.
In the singles, he beat Great Britain’s Andy Lapthorne in straight sets and partnered with Heath Davidson to win doubles gold in three sets against the US pairing of David Wagner and Nicholas Taylor.
