UK-Japan News August 2017

Britain’s Jordanne Whiley MBE and Japan’s Yuki Kamiji won a fourth consecutive Wimbledon women’s wheelchair doubles title, the BBC reported on 16 July. They overcame Dutch players Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot in the final.

The pair received £12,000 in prize money, and the victory followed wins at the US, Australian and French opens. The win marked a triumphant return for Whiley, who spent eight months out injured prior to the tournament.
