JORDANNE Whiley has earned a top-40 ranking after narrowly missing out on her second title of the year.

The 26-year-old, who lives in Steventon, has won nine of her ten singles matches in 2019 and sits 39th in the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tour standings.

Whiley, who won the ITF 3 Series Wrexham Indoor event the previous week, was denied back-to-back titles last Saturday after losing 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 to Italy’s Giulia Capocci in the final of the Bolton Indoor ITF 2.
