Re: Casey's Australian Adventure
i saw the whole match...
Casey seemed a little flat right from the start - but she still played quite well. the serve was really average but in saying that, Lisicki, who i had never seen play before, returned REALLY WELL, thing ivanovic style moving to her big forehand and smacking balls away off caseys serve, stepping right in on second serve, so that of course put more pressure on the serve unfortunately.
Lisicki played a great match first of all, big ground strokes, huge serve! surprisingly good movement and a positive attitude, even when she missed.
Casey played okay, fairly consistently = but i would like for her to be more agressive and take some chances especially against such an agressive opponent. she was up 4 2 and 5 3 in the third so obviously she is in good form, just needs a few more matches under her belt.
oh i only saw the first 4 games of mixed but she was playing very very well and lleyton was really encouraging her
