Tough. Prepare for a rankings slide

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Yeah thats a little tough. It could have been better, but it also could have been worse.

Its winnable, but it just depends. Casey could fall flat, or she could fire up. Whoooo knows.

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

i think casey has a chance her - i would actually put her down as the favourit - daniela is a shadow of her former herself and casey isnt actually playing that badly (apart from the horrible match vs errani)

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Daniella seems to be improving though, from the match against Radwanksa. She just needs to stay steady and not go for so much and then she will whack Casey off the court. Will be interesting to see how Casey is playing after her doubles result though.

From then on her draw is pretty good. But I just can't see her getting through her first round Good luck Casey, do your best.

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

i spose one positive from this is casey is likely to be less nervous than if she was playing a no-name where she ws 100% expected to win... the expectations will be lower against dani which may make it easier for casey to play her game

Thats true, it helped her through last year, I mean in terms of the fact that she wasnt really expected to win them.
Its a pretty tough match to call a winner though.

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Tough draw for Casey. Hopefully when she gets back to Melbourne park she will be inspired again and really start to play well. Hantuchova has been struggling of late. If Casey can keep her errors down she will be in with a good shot!

Good luck Casey!

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Anyone here know what day and what time her match against Daniela will be? Im working at the AO and I want to know those specific details of the match so i can get outta my shift working in the indoor courts and watch the match. Man, this is gonna be one hell of a match. They both had pretty good runs at the AO last year - Casey beating Serena and making it through to the 4th rnd and Daniela making it to the semis.

I'll be cheering for 'em both. But I want Daniela to win

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Have to wait for the schedule to be released, you would think it could be a night match, but no doubt it will end up going on rod laver.

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

It usually comes out the day before, so you will see on Sunday..it might even come out tomorrow when qualifying is finished.

Not sure what side of the draw is playing first though. Usually the defending champion plays first...but she is out this year. I'm guessing the bottom side of the draw will play first...so Casey will be on Tuesday.
You wil be able to find it here when it is released:http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...ule/index.html
Someone can correct me because I am not 100% sure about the draw and what side plays first.
Just have to be patient I guess.

Re: Casey's Australian Adventure

Well hopefully her confidence hasn't disappeared because she got absolutely smashed in the final of Sydney with Nat. They went down 6-0 6-1 to Hsieh and Peng.
