LOUISE Hunt was one of the big winners as wheelchair tennis players from across the world came to Oxfordshire for the first time.

The top seed won the singles and doubles titles at the inaugural Abingdon Futures Wheelchair Tennis Tournament at the White Horse Leisure & Tennis Centre.

British No 3 Hunt, who sometimes trains at the leisure centre with Steventon’s Jordanne Whiley, beat second seed Lauren Jones 6-4 6-4 in the singles final.

The two-time Paralympian then partnered junior player Abbie Breakwell to beat Jones and Ruby Bishop, who also trains at the centre, 6-2 6-3 in the doubles showpiece.

Hunt, who has won more than 70 career singles and doubles titles during her international career, was particularly pleased with victory in the women’s doubles.

She said: “I feel like I’m playing some of my best tennis but trying to win ranking points anywhere at the moment is really hard, as we’re in the qualification period for Tokyo 2020, so I’m very happy.”

Hunt added: “I do a lot of mentoring work off court with our juniors players, so it was just great to get out on court with Abbie and for her to end the tournament with her first international senior title was very special.

“I would really love to come back next year and defend that title with Abbie. It was a really, really well-run event.”

Bishop bounced back to enjoy success in the women’s consolation singles draw, beating fellow Brit Deena Webster 6-1 6-2 in the final.

Another Brit, Scott Smith, triumphed in the men’s singles and doubles events.

He stayed unbeaten in his three quad singles round-robin matches to edge out fellow Brit Gary Cox, who he partnered to win the quad doubles.

Elsewhere, second seed Conner Stroud also claimed a double in Abingdon.

The American defeated Israeli top seed Guy Sasson 6-3, 7-6(3) in the men’s singles, with the pair joining forces to win the men’s doubles title.

They beat Italy’s Silviu Culea and Anto Joskic, from Croatia, 6-2 6-1.
