Double delight for Whiley
12:04pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
HALESOWEN’S Jordanne Whiley stole the show at the PTR Wheelchair Tennis Championships in the USA.
Whiley upset the formbook in South Carolina when she beat British number one and top seed Lucy Shuker from Hampshire to take the title.
The Halesowen ace swept aside a trio of American opponents before beating fourth seed Emmy Kaiser 6-2, 6-2 in the semi-finals.
That set up an all British final showdown with Shuker, who is ranked one place higher than Whiley in the world.
But Whiley made the better start and never looked back as she went onto win 6-2.7-5, ensuring her third win over Shuker in four matches this season.
Whiley then teamed up with Shuker to win the women’s doubles.
