HALESOWEN’S wheelchair tennis superstar Jordanne Whiley has won her record-breaking fourth consecutive Wimbledon doubles title.

Whiley also won a record-equalling tenth Grand Slam title when she claimed the ladies wheelchair doubles crown on the final day of play at the Championships alongside Japanese partner Yui Kamiji.

The 25-year-old’s win caps a successful tournament for wheelchair tennis in this country following the mens doubles victory by Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid on Saturday, coupled with record courtside crowds and high-profile exposure for the sport on the BBC.

Whiley and Kamiji came back from a set down against the Dutch pair of Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot to pull off an astonishing 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory.

The Dutch second seeds and Rio silver medallists took control of the first set and looked on their way to the title before the defending champions broke early in the second set and went on to level the match.

Whiley and Kamiji, who had not played together for a year after illness and injury had kept the Briton out of the sport, appeared to grow in confidence with every point.

They levelled the tie at a set apiece before some phenomenal tennis blew their opponents away in the decider to seal a famous win in front of yet another big crowd on Wimbledon’s court three.

The win, Whiley’s 50 doubles title of her career, was the pair’s fourth Wimbledon ladies wheelchair doubles title in a row.

It also saw Whiley reach legendary status within the sport as she equalled Peter Norfolk’s record for a Briton of 10 wheelchair tennis Grand Slam titles.

After lifting the trophy, the former St Margaret's at Hasbury pupil said: “I can’t believe it, I really didn’t expect us to get through the semi-final, because I’ve been out for quite a while this year, so to actually win it today, it’s a dream. It makes it more special than the other three [Wimbledon titles].

“To be honest I was only thinking about winning a fourth Wimbledon title. It’s only just dawned on me that I’ve won 10 Grand Slams now and equalled Pete Norfolk, so I’m really happy to make it into double figures.

“With it being live on the BBC I hope there will just become more and more supporters of wheelchair tennis and people wanting to play the sport.”
