KGOTHATSO MONTJANE SPORT
What might surprise most people is that I’m not a grass-roots crafted tennis player. I was forced to play tennis by my school teacher at 19; I just picked up a racket, followed instructions and started playing. At first, I would play using both hands: serving with my right, forehand with my left and playing double-handed backhand. Now, it seems impossible to do that again because I can only do everything with one hand.
The most rewarding part of what I do is getting to travel around the world, and learning about different countries and their cultures. I also love meeting new people and learning different languages – even though I still struggle getting the hand of them.
Success means having the courage, determination and will to become the person you were meant to be without fear of failure. At the moment, I’m working towards becoming the world champ and reaching number one. But I also I want to pursue academics and study something other than sport, so that I can venture into the business world after I retire. ➻
