Britain’s Andy Lapthorne won his second Wimbledon quadruple championship title, as he and American partner David Wagner edged out Dylan Alcott and Sam Schroeder.

Lapthorne won his 13th Grand Slam title in total and 11th in the doubles, as he and Wagner won 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

However, Jordan Withey was unable to reach the first Wimbledon final in the women’s wheelchair singles.

She lost 6-4, 6-1 to Dutch top seed Didi de Groot in the semi-finals.

While, the 2015 US Open winner, beat defending champion Anik van Kote in the previous round but, after approaching the first set, was overtaken by 10-time Grand Slam winner De Groot.

Lapthorne and Wagner dominated the opening set of their doubles final, but had to go deeper to win the play-off after Australian world number one Alcott and Dutchman Schroeder equalized.

Alcott and Schroeder broke early in the third set to advance 3-1 but Lapthorne and Wagner used back-to-back breaks to advance 5-3 before eventually crashing out to claim the title.

“It was one of the best games this division has ever seen,” Lapthorne said. “We played well to win the first set but it was tough from there.”
