The pair exchanged an emotional hug after clinching the title for the fourth year in a row

The win, Whiley's 50 doubles title of her career, was the pair's fourth Wimbledon Ladies' Wheelchair Doubles title in a row.

They secured a 2-6 6-3 6-0 victory over the Dutch pairing of Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot on Court Three as the final day of the championships began.

British star Whiley has now won the title for four successive years. She lost in the semifinals of the singles competition at Wimbledon on Friday.

The duo had not played together since last year's Wimbledon as Whiley was out with injury for about eight months.

"There is nothing more satisfying than winning with her", Kamiji said of her partner. "I'm happy", said Whiley. I really did try my hardest.

"I would try my hardest for Yui and I know she would do the same, and that's what makes it such a special doubles partnership". To get such tremendous exposure on the BBC as well as having record numbers of people watching the finals on a show court can only help us in our aim to get more disabled people picking up a racket and realising tennis can be for them.

The so-called "Quadfather" can also boast two Paralympic gold medals to his name, and Whiley admitted she is keen to keep going until the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

"I've always wanted to get into double figures".

"Definitely going for a gold medal now".
