Britain’s Alfie Hewett was beaten 6-2 4-6 6-3 by France’s Stephane Houdet in the US Open wheelchair singles final.

Hewett had hoped to add the title to the doubles trophy he won on Saturday.

But Hewett, who won his maiden Grand Slam singles trophy at the French Open this summer, succumbed to fatigue.
