South Africa’s number one wheelchair tennis star Kgothatso Montjane has received a rather snazzy new set of luxury wheels. On Wednesday, Montjane received the keys to her swanky red Audi Q2 from the Audi Polokwane dealership.
Montjane’s exploits at Wimbledon last month where she progressed to the semi-finals have shot her into the national consciousness and has also seen a raft of sponsors knocking on her door.
Upon arriving back in South Africa Montjane was overwhelmed with sponsorship offers with no less than 10 companies wanted to be associated with her.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Montjane said she was incredibly happy about the deals which she had signed and said it was proof that her hard work had not been for nothing. She added that she would cherish the moment that she received the keys to her car forever.
Citypress.co.za reported that the sponsorship deals earned Montjane in the region of R1.5 million. Montjane said she would continue to work on her game and would work equally hard to be a good brand ambassador for all of her sponsors.
Montjane returned to South Africa on Monday after another successful showing at a major tennis tournament. She reached the semi-finals of the US Open in New York.
Montjane has returned to the top five world rankings thanks to her consistent showings of late.
She said she was incredibly excited about all the opportunities which were opening for her and vowed to keep improving as a player.
