JORDANNE Whiley’s partnership with Yui Kamiji produced another Grand Slam title as the duo downed top seeds Marjolein Buis and Diede De Groot at the US Open.

The Steventon resident and her Japanese partner won 6-3, 6-3 to take the women’s wheelchair doubles crown.

It is Whiley’s 11th Grand Slam title in the paired events and her second at the US Open.

The final was an opportunity for the 28-year-old to get revenge on De Groot, who had knocked her out of the singles tournament at the quarter-final stage on Thursday.

In a game littered with breaks of serve, Whiley and Kamiji came out on top in 96 minutes.

Three months ago it looked impossible that the British player would even be in New York, after tournament organisers controversially scrapped the mixed doubles, junior or wheelchair competitions, before going back on their decision.

Although Whiley has had limited success in singles events, with the 2015 US Open her only title, every doubles victory has come alongside Kamiji.

In January, the pair triumphed at the Australian Open, Whiley’s first Slam since the birth of her son Jackson.

The Oxfordshire resident now has a quick turnaround, with the rearranged French Open starting a week today.

She will also have an eye on next year’s rearranged Tokyo Paralympics, where she is bidding to win her first medal at the Games.
