Casey Dellacqua earns wildcard into Australian Open main draw

Wilson Blade 9

Casey Dellacqua defeated Olivia Rogowska 1-6 7-6(9) 6-3 at the Australian Open Play-Off and earned her spot in the main draw of Australian Open 2010.

Dellacqua trailed 2-5 in the second set and even saved three match points en route to winning the wildcard.

Remember, Australia’s Dellacqua was the story of her home Grand Slam in 2008, when she reached the fourth round defeating Patty Schnyder and Amelie Mauresmo along the way?

The 24-year-old missed practically whole 2009 season because of a shoulder surgery she had in February and tendonitis in her foot.
