Roland Garros to add quad wheelchair events

Last week, Roland Garros announced it would do the same, meaning all four Grand Slams now will have it.

That’s great news for five-time Australian Open champion Dylan Alcott – the face of the sport and also the reigning US Open champion.

The quad draws are still very small.

But Uniqlo has gotten involved as a sponsor and, with these additional exposure opportunities, the sport can only grow.
