Title success for Reid and Whiley
Jordanne Whiley
Talented teenager Whiley is unbeaten so far this year
Teenage wheelchair tennis stars Gordon Reid and Jordanne Whiley were both in winning form at the North West Challenge in Preston.

Scot Reid defeated fellow teenager David Phillipson 6-1 7-5 to claim the men's main draw singles title.

Whiley beat top seed and British number two Susan Paisley 6-4 4-6 6-1 to win the women's singles.

She then teamed up with Louise Hunt to beat Paisley and Anna Tarkowski in the women's doubles decider.

Reid, who is in only his second full season on the circuit, comfortably defeated Birmingham's Mark Agar and British number two Alex Jewitt to reach the final.

Phillipson got the better of Scot Kevin Simpson before coming from a set down to beat Paul Simmonds 5-7 6-2 6-4 in the semi-finals.

But it was Reid who proved strongest in the final and he will move to just outside the top 60 when the new world rankings are published this week.

He was denied a second title when he and Phillipson were beaten by Jewitt and Kevin Plowman in the men's doubles.

Whiley, who won the Wheelchair Tennis Junior Masters in France last month, reached the final with wins over Debbie Brazier and Anna Tarkowski, while Paisley advanced after beating Louise Hunt and Debbie Thomas.

Whiley's second title should now see her move inside the world's top 35 for the first time.
