The duo beat Dutch second seeds Marjolein Buis and Diede de Groot 2-6 6-3 6-0.

"This definitely feels the most special to me because of the time I had out". She lost in the semifinals of the singles competition at Wimbledon on Friday.

Whiley's win puts her on 11 Grand Slam titles and level with Peter Norfolk in the all-time standings. I'm so happy, ' Whiley told the BBC.

"To be honest, I didn't even think about the record", she added. "I was so focused on getting four Wimbledons because it sounds better than three, that I forgot now I was actually into double figures individually, which is incredible".

'That's what makes it such a special doubles team'. We spend a lot of time together off the court. "Anyone interested should contact the Tennis Foundation to find out where they can play, and maybe get on a Tennis Foundation camp, as that's where I started all those years ago". I'd like to thank the All England Lawn Tennis Club for their role in helping to grow the sport so significantly over recent years.

The Tennis Foundation is Great Britain's leading tennis charity.
