Halesowen's Jordanne Whiley celebrating after netting fifth Wimbledon doubles title

Halesowen's Jordanne Whiley and her doubles partner Yui Kamiji are celebrating after winning their fifth Wimbledon title after defeating Lucy Shuker and Kgothatso Montjane.

In the first Grand Slam women’s doubles wheelchair final to feature Brits on both sides of the net, Whiley and Kamiji raced to the first set 6-0.

Montjane and Shuker made a much better start to the second set to establish a 3-1 lead, but it went to a tie-break and Whiley and Kamiji dominated the close stages to win their first title at The Championships since 2017, when Whiley was 11 weeks pregnant with son Jackson.

After their 12th Grand Slam title as a partnership, Whiley, who grew up in Halesowen and attended St Margaret’s at Hasbury CE Primary School, said:

“It’s amazing. I had forgotten how long it had actually been since we won the title here. It was really special today.

"The last time I won here with Yui I was pregnant and today Jackson's here doing a lap of honour on the court with the trophy, so that was really nice.”
