Casey Dellacqua advances to fourth round of Pacific Life Open as Tamira Paszek retires


Today at the Pacific Life Open, Australian world No.56 Casey Dellacqua moved into the fourth round of a WTA event for only the second time in her career as Austrian teenager Tamira Paszek retired with illness trailing 6-1 4-0.

Casey Dellacqua made the headlines in January, as she reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. Then she scored her first two Top 20 wins defeating No.15 seed Patty Schnyder and No.18 seed Amelie Mauresmo. Dellacqua left the Australian Open falling to Jelena Jankovic.

At the Pacific Life Open, Dellacqua will next play twelfth-seeded Vera Zvonareva of Russia.
