Wheelchair Tennis champion David Wagner is finding tremendous success in 2013. He extended his winning streak to 18 consecutive singles matches by claiming the title at the Swiss Open -- his seventh career victory in Geneva -- and appears primed to defend his US Open title later this summer.

World No. 1 David Wagner enjoyed a great weekend in Geneva at the Swiss Open, winning both the quad singles and doubles titles.
The defending US Open quad singles and doubles champion beat fellow American Greg Hasterok in the quad singles semis and then South Africa's Lucas Sithole, the second seed, 6-2, 6-2, in the final. The victory comes on the 10-year anniversary of Wagner winning his first Swiss Open title in 2003.
After their quad singles final, Wagner and Sithole paired to complete their first tournament as partners by winning their first quad doubles title together, defeating Hasterok and Italy’s Antonio Raffaele, 6-3, 6-1.
Wagner heads into July's British Open in Nottingham, England, unbeaten (18 consecutive wins) since the quad singles semifinals at the SA Open in Johannesburg in early April, where his loss to Sithole was Wagner’s only singles defeat in 36 matches this season.
