About: 

Gordon started playing wheelchair tennis in 2005 after contracting transverse myelitis shortly before his 13th birthday. Just three years after contracting the disease he represented Britain at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics.  He has also represented Scotland in wheelchair basketball and is a huge Rangers fan, parading his French Open doubles trophy at Hampden Park. He attracts strong support wherever he competes on tour, particularly in the UK with a noisy ‘Team Reid’ cheering him on.
