About

She was born outside Polokwane with a congenital disorder which affected both of her hands and a foot with the other foot being amputated by age 12. In 2018, she qualified for Wimbledon, the first black South African woman to do so. In the same year, she also competed at the US Open and became the first African wheelchair tennis player to qualify for all four Grand Slam events in the same year.
