First up win for Dellacqua at play-off


First up win for Dellacqua at play-off

Casey Dellacqua has made a triumphant return to Melbourne Park, registering a win in her opening round-robin match in the Australian Open Wildcard Play-off. 

Dellacqua surprised No.1 seed Olivia Rogowska 7-6(8) 6-0, the contest petering out after a tough first set.
Both players began on song, with a healthy crowd watching an entertaining tussle in sunny conditions on court 6.

Dellacqua needed a tiebreaker to seal the first set, claiming it by the smallest of margins, 10-8.

Rogowska’s confidence began to crumble in the second as she sent a string of errors spraying out of the court; she managed to win only a handful of points for the set.

Dellacqua, who endured an injury-frustrated 2009, said she was happy with her start to the Wildcard Play-off.
“It was exciting to be back out there, be competitive and have a win,” she said.

“I was enjoying getting court time, and that’s just what this week’s going to be about – getting matches and playing a lot of tennis.

“But sometimes you just want to win and get off the court, so it was good.”

    Great to see you back at professional tennis and recovered fully from your injuries. All the best with the rest of the wild card play offs. It will be great seeing you at the Australian Open again in 2010.
