Casey wins Mildura crown

West Australian Casey Dellacqua has won her first Australian Pro Tour title of 2010 taking out the Mildura Grand International yesterday.

Dellacqua, the sixth seed, was too strong for Victorian [8] Sally Peers winning the final in straight sets 7-5 6-0.

Teaming with fellow West Australian Jessica Moore, Dellacqua also won the women’s doubles title, defeating Victorians Jarmila Groth and Jade Hopper 6-2 7-6(3).

“It’s been a great week.  My main goal coming here was to get as much tennis as I could and I did that, winning the singles and the doubles,” Dellacqua said.

“It was really tough to hold serve because of the wind and neither of us could really break away.  It was a great first set and I was lucky to get on top of her and finish the match the way I did.

I really enjoyed Mildura; it is a really great town.  The weather was nice and the grass courts were fantastic,” Dellacqua said.
