CapeTalk's John Maytham spoke to 15-year-old Khololwam Montsi who has recently joined the 2018 Tennis SA junior national squad programme and won the boy's under-16 category at the 2017 Growth Point Junior Masters.
Khololwam's elder brother, Sipho Montsi, represented South Africa at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games in October.
He says he is following in his elder brothers footsteps.
I followed him when I saw how much he was travelling, and I thought to myself maybe I should start tennis.— Khololwam Montsi, young tennis player
Khololwam is currently home schooled so that he can focus on his tennis career. His plan is to play professional tennis and maybe focus on his tertiary education when he turns 18.
