Early setback for SA’s Paralympians at the Masters
- Updated: November 27, 2014
London tennis Paralympians Lukas Sithole and Kgothathso Montjane have lost the opening matches of the NEC Wheelchair Masters in London, writes Mark Etheridge.
Sithole went down in straight sets, 6-1 6-1, to world No1 David Wagner. The American is the defending champion, having also beaten Sithole in the 2013 final.
Playing in Pool B, KG Montjane got off to a bright start by taking the first set off the world’s No3 Aniek van Kloot. But the Netherlands player bounced back to win 4-6 6-1 6-1.
Eton Manor, the venue for the tournament, is the same facility as used for the 2012 Paralympics.
