Whiley happy as 'flawed' role model
- From the section Get Inspired
Five-time tennis Grand Slam doubles winner Jordanne Whiley says she is a "flawed" role model as she prepares to defend her Wimbledon wheelchair doubles title with partner Yui Kamiji.
In June, Whiley was appointed an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours and hopes she can now use her success to inspire others.
Her disability, Osteogenesis Imperfecta or brittle bone disease has seen her break 26 bones during her lifetime, including a rib during a final she was playing in.
