12 Jan 2010 By IPC

Marc McCarroll (GBR) clinched the first International Tennis Federation 3 Series title of his career on Sunday at the Queensland Open, part of the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour, in Brisbane, while Jiske Griffioen (NED) and James McLeod (NZL) won the women's singles and quad singles titles respectively.

With the men's wheelchair singles final scheduled shortly before the Brisbane International ATP final between Andy Roddick and Radek Stepanek, 24-year-old fourth seed McCarrroll earned his first ever win over fellow Briton and third seed Reid as he edged a fascinating final 7-6 4-6 6-4.

McCarroll and Reid went on to take the men's doubles title as they justified top seeding to beat Australian second seeds Michael Dobbie and Ben Weekes 7-5 6-3 completing a British clean sweep of the men's main draw titles.

Griffioen collected the women's singles title for the loss of just one game in three matches, clinching the final with a 6-0 6-0 win over Luba Josevski (AUS).

Janel Manns (AUS) and Tiffiney Perry (NZL) won the women's doubles title, beating Josevski and Narelle Henderson (AUS) 6-3 6-3 in the final.

McLeod (NZL) remained unbeaten in his four round-robin matches to win the quad singles, beating runner-up Matthew Ingram 6-0 6-1 in the match between the two players.
