Not a very convincing first set, but much better in the second.
Hopefully its just her trying to find her rhythm etc

Keep going Casey

Hardly surprising she needs to adjust to the surface. Has Casey ever even played a maindraw of a grass court tournament on tour level?

She should be effective on this surface with her solid serve, groundstrokes and volleys.

Well done Aussie lefty. Better luck next time Yanky lefty.
