Tokito Oda outplayed Alfie Hewett in the Wimbledon men's wheelchair singles final, winning 6-4, 6-2.
No longer on the verge of superstardom, the 17-year-old Oda is the heir apparent to retired legend Shingo Kunieda, winner of a record 50 Grand Slam titles (28 in singles competition, 22 in doubles).
Look no further than Oda's performance on Sunday, July 16 at London's All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club.
Oda denied Hewett a chance to complete his quest to win the career Grand Slam in singles. The 25-year-old British player has won the French Open and the US Open three times apiece. And he triumphed for the first time in the Australian Open in January 2023, defeating Oda 6-3, 6-1 in the final.
Sunday's victory was an impressive achievement for Oda against one of wheelchair tennis' top stars of the past decade. (Check out match highlights on Wimbledon's YouTube channel.)
