US Open draw for Dellacqua

The last major on the tennis calendar commences on Monday when the US Open gets underway in New York.

With the draw completed yesterday afternoon, Casey Dellacqua has drawn Patricia Mayr-Achleitner.


Seeded for the first time in her career, Dellacqua will play the 85th ranked Austrian, a player she has never faced, despite the pair sharing more than ten years on tour.

A qualifier is a guaranteed second round opponent for the winner after two qualifiers were paired to face each other in the adjacent segment of the draw.

Dellacqua will again team with fellow Australian Ash Barty in the women’s doubles, with the pair hoping to go one better than their 2013 result, which saw them go down in the final 6-7 6-1 6-4 to the top seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci.

The draw is yet to be released for the doubles event.
