Wheelchair Wimbledon 2015: Results

July 12, 2015

Jordanne Whiley successfully defended her Wimbledon title as she and playing partner Yui Kamiji won the wheelchair doubles final.

The pair beat Dutch duo Jiske Griffioen and Aniek Van Koot 6-2 5-7 6-3.

Briton Whiley, 23, and Japanese Kamiji, 21, have now won six Grand Slams out of seven.

However, Whiley’s compatriot Gordon Reid, 23, was unable to add a second Grand Slam title of 2015 as he lost in the men’s wheelchair doubles final.

The Scotsman and Michael Jeremiasz of France lost 5-7 7-5 2-6 to Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina and Frenchman Nicolas Peifer.

Meanwhile, Wimbledon announced on Sunday that from next year there will be a singles event in the men’s and women’s wheelchair tennis.

Wheelchair doubles have been played as Wimbledon for the last 10 years, but 2016 will mark the first time a singles event will take place.

Can I add that I am very pleased about the wheelchair singles tournament. I’ve always wondered why there has never been one up to now.
