Andy Lapthorne headlined four wins from four matches for the Brits on the second day of play in Orlando as the world No.2 began his quad singles and quad doubles campaigns with victories in both events.

Top seed Lapthorne had to dig deep to win his opening quad singles round-robin contest, eventually beating world No.4 Koji Sugeno of Japan 1-6, 6-1, 6-3. Lapthorne now plays British Open champion Niels Vnk of the Netherlands later in the week.

Later on Wednesday’s second day of competition Lapthorne and another Dutchman, Sam Schroder, made a spectacular winning start to their first-time doubles partnership. Lapthorne and Schroder beat 11-time Doubles Masters champions Nick Taylor and David Wagner 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 in the first of their three matches in the round-robin phase of the competition.
