South Africa’s leading wheelchair tennis star, Kgothatso Montjane, is looking forward to the future after bowing out of Roland Garros.

Montjane suffered a defeat in the doubles semi-final round with her partner Dana Mathewson from USA against Netherlands top-seeds Diede de Groot and Aniek van Koot.

The pair lost in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.

Sharing on her Instagram, the 35-year-old, said: “Even though the emotions were high, my favourite part of this game is the opportunity to play.

“It wasn’t to be for me and will come back stronger,” she concluded.
