In a coup for sporting inclusivity, the men's Quad Wheelchair Singles Final will be played on Rod Laver Arena tonight in prime-time.

All eyes will be on Rod Laver Arena tonight as Dylan Alcott and Sam Schroder clash on centre court to decide the Australian Open Quad Wheelchair singles champion.

The scheduling move comes just one day after Alcott captured his fourth-straight Quad Doubles Championship with partner Heath Davidson.

Alcott will be out for revenge against Schroder, who upset the Aussie in three sets to claim last year’s US Open crown.

Should Aclott be successful, it will be the world number one’s seventh title in Australia and his 12th Grand Slam title overall.

In his run in to the final Alcott is yet to drop a set, culminating in a dominating quarter finals win against doubles partner Heath Davidson, dropping just five games for the match.

To show their support for the six-time champion, and wheelchair tennis, Australian Open organisers have scheduled the match to go ahead on Rod Laver Arena following the quarter-final between Rafael Nadal and Stefano Tsitsipas on Wednesday night.
