Tennis starlet upbeat  


Moorosi Tsiane

America-based Lebelo Mosehle says his tennis career is destined for greater heights due to the professional training he is now receiving at his new base.

The Maseru West-born player left Lesotho in August this year for a two-year scholarship at the Seward County Community College.

Mosehle (19) on Thursday told the Sunday Express: “I am now settled here in the United States, and at the moment, we are only training hard and playing lots of friendlies as we are getting ready for the new season which starts in February.

“Things are done differently here, and it really took me some time to adjust.”

Mosehle won a bronze medal at the 2015 All-Africa Games held in Congo, but says he was not happy with the third-place finish.

“I thought I had prepared well for the All-Africa Games, but although my coach seemed satisfied with how I played, I still thought I could have done much better,” he said.

“But that is all in the past now and I have learnt from my mistakes so I will soldier on and focus on future competitions.”

According to Mosehle, his short-term goal is seeing his team make it into the top three in their league.

“We are currently ranked eighth so my short-term goal is to see that the team breaks into the top three,” Mosehle said.
