Former Wimbledon champion Todd Reid dies aged 34

Former Australian tennis player Todd Reid has died, aged 34.

Reid won the boys junior singles title in 2002 and landed the doubles Down Under the same year.

He was found dead on Tuesday, although the cause of his death is still unknown.

Aussie doubles legend Todd Woodbridge led the tributes on social media.

He wrote: "Very saddened to hear the news of the passing of Todd Reid. We never know how much someone can be suffering. Prayers for Todd and his family."

Reid was tipped for big things when he was victorious in SW19 in a field that contained the likes of Tomas Berdych, Jo-Wilfired Tsonga and Marcos Baghdatis.

He reached a career high ranking of 105 on the main circuit and was the Australian No.3 behind Lleyton Hewitt and Mark Philippoussis.

However, he was plagued by injury and illness before eventually walking away from the sport in May 2005.
