Refilwe Moloto weighs in on sporting events and reminisces about her days watching tennis at her grandmother's house in Soweto.

Wimbledon hailed a new queen on Monday when 15-year-old Cori Gauff shocked five-time champion Venus Williams by securing a 6-4, 6-4 win at Wimbledon.

South Africa's Lloyd Harris played his idol in Roger Federer and lost by 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 on Tuesday.

Rifilwe Moloto says it has been a fantastic week for sport and it was interesting to see Gauff and Harris play their idols in Williams and Federer.

I am excited to see what is going to be happening in Wimbledon over the next couple of weeks. I really do enjoy seeing fresh blood coming through.

Refilwe Moloto, Presenter

She says Wimbledon is a tradition in her family particularly during the June and July school holidays.

The winter holidays when we drive to visit my grandmother and she was a very big Wimbledon fan. June holidays was when we all gather around the television and watch Wimbledon. As the youngest one in the family, I was assigned to hold the bunny ears of the Ariel.
