Montjane Suffers Double Loss at Wimbledon

South African tennis star, Kgothatso Montjane failed to progress to the final stage of the Wheelchair tennis singles event at Wimbledon in London after suffering a defeat to Dutch number one, Diede de Groot.

In a repeat of last year’s semi-final, the result once again went in favour of de Groot, who pulled off a 6-3, 6-2 victory.

Montjane Then Took to The Doubles Semi-Final with Ellerbrock

As the 33-year-old looked to redeem herself after her earlier loss to de Groot, as she went on to feature in the Wheelchair double semi-final, partnering with Germany’s Sabine Ellerbrock.

The two who had faced each other in the quarterfinal round, were this time, side-by-side. Unfortunately, they lost their match, 5-7, 2-6, to Netherlands’ Marjolein Buis and Italy’s Giulia Capocci.
