Dutch champion Esther Vergeer extended her remarkable unbeaten streak to 470 games when she won her fourth Paralympic wheelchair tennis gold medal last night.
Vergeer again proved too strong for her rivals in London, this time world No.2 Aniek van Koot, whom she swept aside 6-0, 6-3 in the final.
She has not been beaten since 2003 when she lost to Australian Danni Di Toro.
“It’s what I dreamt about, thought about and did everything for,” said Vergeer of winning her fourth gold.
“There was so much pressure … everyone expected me to win gold and that I would win but I still had to work hard to be at the top of my game and a lot of people forget that.”
Vergeer, who won the first 10 games of the final before van Koot got on the scoreboard, said she was not sure what he future held.
“First of all I’m going to enjoy this one,” she said. “I’m not promising anything that I’ll be here in four years.”
“I don’t know if I’ll be going to Rio. I don’t know what’s going to happen in that social, private part of my life.”
