MARC McCarroll collected a men's doubles title and came runner-up in the singles competition at the Adelaide Wheelchair Tennis Open in Australia on Friday.
The Harrow-born British number three, now living in Ickenham, clinched his second ITF 3 Series men's doubles title in successive weeks with partner Gordon Reid.
The top seeds beat Australian second seeds Michael Dobbie and Ben Weekes 6-2, 6-3 to collect the trophy in a repeat of the Queensland Open final in Brisbane the week before.
McCarroll's bid to win consecutive singles titles at the start of the 2010 NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour came unstuck at the last hurdle as he slipped to a straight sets defeat against top seeded Weekes.
He will be hoping to go one better when he contests the Melbourne Open in a fortnight's time.
Elsewhere in the tournament, British number one Lucy Shuker partnered Australia's Daniela di Toro to clinch the women's doubles title.
