British wheelchair tennis is in brilliant form as Andy Lapthorne and Jordanne Whiley both won Australian Open titles.

Britain's Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji won an incredible fifth Grand Slam in a row, beating Dutch second seeds Jiske Griffioen and Aniek van Koot.

Andy Lapthorne won his fourth Australian Open quad doubles title as he and world number one David Wagner defended their win from last year.

But their fellow Briton Gordon Reid and Argentine partner Gustavo Fernandez weren't able to make it a British triple, as they lost their final to top seeds Stephane Houdet of France and Shingo Kunieda of Japan.

Earlier on Thursday, Lapthorne saw his hopes of a place in the quad singles final fade when he was edged out 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) by Sithole in his second of three round-robin singles matches.
