Casey makes it three in a row

Casey Dellacqua has won her third-consecutive ITF tournament on home soil, this time at the Cliffs Esperance Tennis International in Esperance, WA.

Dellacqua, the third seed, proved too strong for second-seeded countrywoman Olivia Rogowska in the final, winning in straight sets 6-2 6-1.

The win in Esperance follows triumphs in Darwin and Cairns as Dellacqua gathers momentum with the Australian summer looming.

Dellacqua’s ranking has improved to No.205 in the world.
