Casey knocked out of Japan Open

Casey Dellacqua has fallen in straight sets in the second round of the HP Japan Women’s Open in Osaka, losing to Kai-Chen Chang.

Dellacqua fought hard but couldn’t match the form of her Taiwanese opponent, going down 7-6(4) 6-3.

Chang had in the first round defeated third seed Christina McHale, and took confidence from that victory into the tight opening set, which progressed to a breaker after each player broke serve four times.

Despite her serving woes - she finished the match with six double faults - Chang was able to hold on to clinch a one-set advantage.

She broke early in the second, and built a lead that the Australian could not reel in. A second break cemented victory for Chang after one hour and 36 minutes.

She will next face British No.8 seed Laura Robson or China’s Yi-Miao Zhou in the quarterfinals.
