The duo beat Dutch defending champions Jiske Griffioen and Aniek van Koot 6-4 3-6 6-3 at Flushing Meadows in New York.

In winning this title, Birmingham-born Whiley has became the first Briton to win the same event at all four Grand Slams in the same year.

“I can’t believe it. There’s a mixture of emotions. I felt sick at one point, I felt enjoyment at another,” she said.

She and Kamiji also hold the Australian, French and Wimbledon titles.
