Youngest person ever to win the National Championships
At 14 she became the youngest person ever to win the National Championships. She won the Junior Masters three years in a row, took a bronze medal in London, and qualified for the Beijing Paralympic games in 2008 when she just 16. In 2014 she became the first women’s tennis player, able-bodied or wheelchair, to win four Grand Slam titles in the doubles, and in 2015 she was awarded an MBE in recognition of her service to wheelchair tennis.
In 2017, at the age of 26, she took the Wimbledon Women’s Wheelchair Doubles gold with her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji. She and her sentimental partner Marc McCarroll later revealed that she was eleven weeks pregnant at the time. They were both delighted but also concerned as there was a fifty percent chance that the child could inherit Jordanne’s condition. Fortunately, the tests were negative and she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Jackson.
Since then, she has been getting back her form and is currently the 2018 Ladies Singles Champion in the National Wheelchair Tennis Championships. She will be making her Grand Slam return in Wimbledon this year and hopes to qualify for the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.
