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.
