Re: Casey Dellacqua could do well on grass

i reckon her game is good for grass. her groundies are flat & are especially penerating when they come back fast and low which could work to her advantage. i think she needs to work on her serve & her volleys.

Re: Casey Dellacqua could do well on grass

i think she could take out any player ranked 50 or below when she is having a good day... i think she just needs some big draws to get her confidence up and i think we will see her in the top 75 by years end

dellacqua • dokic • groth • molik • stosur
holland • mirkovic • moore • rogowska • wejnert
clijsters • hantuchova • jankovic • sharapova • venus

Re: Casey Dellacqua could do well on grass

She got a very fortunate Qualifying draw. She didn't face anyone in the top 165 and her first two opponents weren't even in the top 200. I would be weary of overestimating her chances just yet.

Re: Casey Dellacqua could do well on grass

I don't like this draw. It just happens that Molik and Stosur are in the same section, and Pratt is playing Dellacqua in the first round.

Dellacqua will beat Pratt comfortably. She's a much better player than her ranking.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske
