Here is the latest news from British players competing around the world with a winner, a finalist and potential for more success with women’s wheelchair singles and doubles semi-finalists at the ITF 3 tournament in Turkey.
Charles Broom claimed his fifth M15 doubles title over the weekend with his doubles partner Constantin Frantzen of Germany at the ITF M15 Monastir.
The third seeds took on the fourth seeded Chinese duo of Zhe Li and Bu Yunchaokete in the final and won in three sets with Broom and Frantzen taking the third set 10-8 in a match lasting just under two hours.
