Hewett, 19, is making his debut at Flushing Meadows, while 25-year-old Reid won the title in 2015.

In the women's wheelchair doubles, Britain's Lucy Shuker and partner Yui Kamiji of Japan, the second seeds, lost 0-6 6-4 (10-5) to American Dana Mathewson and Aniek Van Koot of the Netherlands in the semi-finals.

Britain's Andy Lapthorne beat 2015 US Open champion Dylan Alcott 6-4 6-1 in the first of his three quad singles round-robin matches.

World number two Lapthorne won the quad singles and doubles titles at last week's US Open USTA Wheelchair Championships in St. Louis.
