The Diteemane duo of Constance Kuswani and Olorato Ramagapu left for Cape Town yesterday for the South African 2022 Open Championships looking to go past the round of 16 for the first time.

The championship is to be played tomorrow at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. The tournament was played in October last year but could not be concluded due to load shedding that has affected the neighbouring country.

The duo was amongst the top-ranking 40 athletes before the championship was halted in October and have been invited to fight for top honours. Kuswani and Ramagapu return to South African shores to better local players' record in the championships. No local player has ever gone past the last 16 round in the SA championships. Veterans, Bonolo Mabote and Tshepiso Rebatenne were the first to reach the last 16 before Tshenolo Mooketsi joined the elite group in recent years.
