Dellacqua draws Hantuchova

Casey Dellacqua has drawn statuesque Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova in the first round of Australian Open 2009.

The Slovakian is the 19th seed in the women’s draw and was a semifinalist at Australian Open 2008 - her best showing at a Grand Slam to date.

The round 1 rendevous will be the pair’s first meeting, and will provide Dellacqua with a solid test.

Meanwhile, Dellacqua and doubles partner Nathalie Dechy are through to the doubles final at the Medibank International Sydney.

The Australian-French team has had a difficult time of it, and have had to fight their way past the No.3 seeds Kveta Peschke and Lisa Raymond in the second round and then the No.1 seeds, Cara Black and Liezel Huber, in the semis.

Dellacqua and Dechy will play Su-Wei Hsieh and Shuai Peng in the final.

    Gl for the rest of the year… played pretty good at times against Hantuchova… need to pick up on the serve, changing your service action has forced you to lose some power off it… GL in doubles and mixed(?)
