Dellacqua wins Cairns title

Casey Dellacqua’s lead-up to the Australian summer is off to a great start with the West Australian claiming the Cairns Women’s Tennis International on Sunday.

The sixth seed in Cairns, Dellacqua didn’t drop a set all week on the way to the title.

On her way to the final, Dellacqua encountered just one seeded player, seventh seed Ayu-Fani Damayanti in the semifinals, who she accounted for easily 6-1 6-0.

In the final, Dellacqua was too strong for Poland’s Sandra Zaniewska, who she defeated 6-4 7-6(3).

Dellacqua will travel to Darwin tomorrow for the Darwin Tennis International.
