Kgothatso Montjane continued her amazing local winning streak by making it eight tournaments in a row after victory in the the Silver Fund Women’s Final, simultaneously placing herself in good stead to earn SA’s wild card berth to the 2008 Paralympics in Bejing, China.
South African Tennis is abuzz about Montjane’s brilliant achievement, with her latest impresive work a clever tactical over a very strong shot-playing Nigerian opponent in Suzanna Dawodu, but who is also known for her lack in mobility.
Montjane exploited Dawodu’s weekness with her deadly accurate shots and scintillating speed around the court, with the first few games hotly contested.
Every game went to deuce numerous times; but once the South African managed to secure a 4-2 lead, there was no looking back; and Montjane made a clean sweep of the final eight games for a remarkable record.
Silver Fund Women’s Finals:
Kgothatso Montjane (LIM) bt Suzanna Dawodu (NGR) 6-2 6-0
