View Full Version : Hopman Cup: SLO vs AUS: Cibulkova def Dellacqua 7-5 6-2

:( Casey had a choke again in the first, led 3-1 and 4-2 served for it at 5-4.

Disappointing for her in front of the home crowd.

Casey played well in some parts but really seems to struggle with her serve and just finishing off the point. Cibulkova played her typical running match but hit some nice winners as well. I think she can do some damage at the Aussie Open.

Disappointing Casey couldnt take that first set:(

Cibulkova played well, shes extremely consistent and runs a shit load.... so funny, she looks like a midget on the tv - especially in comparision to shaughnessy last night:lol:

Disappointing from casey. She had some good moments in there though, just needs to build on it. And stop chokiiiing.

Dominika:hearts: Pity that the local tv didn't broadcast this match...

hope she can regain some confidence by AO. She's likely to lose R1 in Sydney, so not the start to the year she woulda been hopin for.

domi is playing really well! i really like her i think she can be top ten in a few months.

casey did show that she easily has the game to beat top 20 players, but its the mentality she is lacking - she needs some more matches and more confidence

Disappointing that Casey isn't performing at her best in front of her home crowds. :( But good on Cibulkova for getting the win. :D

Sorry, I know I'm being nit picky here, but it's SVK. :) SLO = Slovenia. :)

Sorry :p, I was think about it for a while and just guessed in the end. Complete mind freeze. (how do you edit the title?)

Casey is developing a slight choking habbit :unsure:

Jan 6th, 2009, 10:31 AM

Hmmm.. Casey. Bad luck

Cibulkova has what Casey wants, good mental toughness.

The girl is also feisty and doesn't beat herself.
If she has a good clay court season, she could see herself sneaking into the top 12.
