Womens wheelchair doubles performance

It's looking good for Britain Jordanne Whiley in the US Open wheelchair women's tennis. Jordanne has just reached her first grand slam final having beaten Aniek Van Koot from the Netherlands.

Whiley, 23, lost the first set on a tie-break but won the next two to complete a 6-7 (1-7) 6-4 6-3 triumph over the Dutch second seed, having won 6-3 6-1 against American Kaitlyn Verfuerth in the quarter-finals.
She will play her doubles partner Yui Kamiji in todday's final.

In addition to her singles results Jordanne also excelled in the doubles but lost in the last four of the US Open wheelchair women's doubles, while fellow Brit Gordon Reid did reach the final of the men's doubles. Having been disappointed with her performance in the quarter finals, Jordanne tweeted "Well that's what happens when you have an absolute shambles and play like an idiot" which seems a little harsh as she played well and covered the ground impressively well in her sports wheelchair adapted for tennis.
