Sithole has to settle for second in California
- Updated: November 12, 2013
A strong start in the NEC Wheelchair Masters final couldn’t be sustained by our top quad tennis player, Lucas Sithole on Monday, writes Mark Etheridge.
The second ranked quad player in the world, Sithole came up against world No1 David Wagner in the final of the tournament being played in Mission Viejo, California.
A London Paralympian last year, Sithole took the first set in fine style, whitewashing Wagner 6-0.
But Wagner is not defending champion for nothing and took the second set 6-2. That set the tone for the remainder of the match and Wagner took the third and deciding set 6-2.
Sithole now returns to South Africa in time for Sunday’s SA Sports Awards, where he is one of the nominations for honours.
