JORDANNE Whiley has been knocked out of the ladies’ wheelchair singles at Wimbledon by doubles partner Yui Kamiji.

The Oxfordshire player, who was making her first grand slam appearance since 2017 following childbirth, lost 6-4, 6-1 in the opening round.

While the 27-year-old returns to action in the doubles tomorrow, rising star Matilda Mutavdzic's memorable run at SW19 came to an end today in the girls' event.

The teenager had already caught the eye in her run to the third round of the singles this week, but was beaten in three sets in the doubles this afternoon.

Whiley, who lives in Steventon, was always playing catch-up against second seed Kamiji throughout their 1hr 8minute contest on Court 14.

The world No 8, who had won 34 of her 38 matches ahead of today, trailed 4-1 in the first set.

Whiley fought back, but Kamiji, with whom she has won four Wimbledon doubles titles as well as the calendar grand slam in 2014, broke again to take it 6-4 in 35 minutes.

The Japanese player then raced into a 5-0 lead in the second set.

Kamiji was broken as she attempted to serve out the match, but Whiley could not hold the following game as she fell to defeat.

The duo team up in the first round of the doubles tomorrow, facing Diede De Groot and Aniek Van Koot.

Meanwhile, Mutavdzic, who grew up in Abingdon, was beaten in the second round of the girls’ doubles.

The 15-year-old, partnering, fellow Briton Holly Fischer lost 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 to American seven seed pairing Chloe Beck and Emma Navarro on Court 5.
