HALESOWEN wheelchair tennis star Jordanne Whiley’s hunt for Paralympic glory is back on after victory in the women’s doubles.

Whiley and her partner Lucy Shuker have progressed to Thursday's semi-finals after winning their opening game 6-3 6-3 over Germany’s Sabine Ellerbock and Katharina Kruger yesterday.

They are now just one win away from challenging for the gold medal as Whiley showed plenty of character to bounce back from the disappointment of her first round exit in the singles competition on Saturday.
