Dellacqua exits New York

Casey Dellacqua has been bundled out of the US Open following first-round losses in the singles and doubles.

Frenchwoman Alize Cornet knocked wildcard Dellacqua out of the singles with a 7-5 6-0 win in 71 minutes.

Dellacqua broke her opponent twice, but Cornet’s six converted break points proved too much in the end.

In the doubles, Dellacqua paired with countrywoman Rennae Stubbs but were ousted in the first round by Sorana Cirstea and Ayumi Morita in three sets, 7-5 4-6 6-2.
