Reid and Kuniedo are the second seeds

Britain's Gordon Reid is on course for an Australian Open double after winning through to the final of the men's wheelchair doubles at Melbourne Park.

The 24-year-old Scot is already into the final of the singles, where he will face Belgian Joachim Gerard.

Reid and Japan's Shingo Kunieda beat Gerard and Argentina's Gustavo Fernandez 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 in the semis.

They will now meet French top seeds Stephane Houdet and Nicolas Peifer in Saturday's final.

Reid, who ended partner Kunieda's nine-year unbeaten run in the singles competition with a 6-3 7-6 (7-1) victory in the quarter-finals, is second on court six against Gerard with his doubles final following at the end of the day.
