Wimbledon champion Jordanne Whiley and Andy Lapthorne lead a strong field of British hopes in the wheelchair tennis at this year's US Open.
The Ickenham and Eastcote duo will be gunning for titles in both singles and doubles events in a tournament that features 20 players competing across men's, ladies' and quad events.
Whiley was the first British woman to win a wheelchair tennis title at Wimbledon, describing it as a 'childhood dream', and is the current world number two in the doubles rankings.
The Ickenham ace is aiming to complete a calendar Grand Slam in the ladies' doubles – winning all four grand slams in the same year – with her partner Yui Kamiji, of Japan.
They seek to emulate the Dutch pair of Jiske Griffioen and Aniek van Koot who took the four majors last season.
At world number three Lapthorne, who features in the quad event, will have high hopes of a strong finish, having won his third doubles title at the Australian Open in Melbourne at the start of the year.
The man from Eastcote will face stiff competition, however, as he faces the three-time Paralympic quad doubles gold medallist American partnering of world number one David Wagner and Nick Taylor, ranked sixth.
Wimbledon champion Whiley said: “It's been a remarkable year already and... I'm so excited for the opportunity me and Yui have to win the set of all four major titles.”
The athletes are supported by the Tennis Foundation, who work in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association to promote tennis as an inclusive sport.
