Casey Dellacqua wins 2012 PYW Australian Championships

Final: [2]Casey Dellacqua def. [1]Sam Stosur 5-7 6-3 9-7


Story by Barry McIntosh of the Rockhampton Chronicle

2nd seeded Casey Dellacqua of Western Australia has taken out the 2012 PYW Australian Championships with an upset win over top seeded Samantha Stosur 5-7 6-3 9-7. Stosur who had won the title in the previous two years looked set to make it a trifecta after winning the first set 7-5. However, Casey's diehard fans ensured she remained in contention, helping her to take a commanding 5-1 lead in the 2nd set. Dellacqua won the set 6-3 and then took a 5-3 lead in the final set, only to see Stosur save several match points and then take the lead herself at 6-5. Casey found her form again and clinched the match with a marathon 9-7 finish.

It was a surprise victory as Stosur had not dropped a set all tournament, while Casey had struggle to squeeze past veteran Monique Adamczak in the Quarter-finals. Rumours about the grounds were that Sam had begun to take it for granted that she would take out the final. Several spectators reported that Sam began to indulge heavily in Biloela's local KFC, enjoying their "Zingin Double" burgers at least twice daily. Perhaps this contributed to Stosur fading throughout the final.

However, nothing should be taken away from Casey's win. She was ecstatic to be receiving the prestigious Michelle Jaggard-Lai trophy from Rod Laver's pre-school teacher's granddaughter Bonita Christopoulous. The awards ceremony was highlighted by another great performance from the Callide Shire Tweens'n'Toddlerz Modern Dance Troupe. Unfortunately, few players were in attendance as most were reluctant to spend more time in Biloela than necessary, but the entire midweek ladies competition were there to offer their congratulations to both Sam and Casey.

Staff and volunteers from the Biloela International Tennis Academy wish to thank all players and supporters for making this year's event a success. The PYW Australian Championship organising committee looks forward to seeing you again for next year's competition which will be held in Wee Waa for the first time.
