Arrow Request for a Casey Dellacqua Sub-Forum

Hello all

There are many of us, particularly in the Tennis Australia and New Zealand Forum, who have been very impressed by Casey Dellacqua's recent progress. She has won 4 ITF titles this year and had some very good results on the WTA Tour. She has now also established herself as a top 100 player. As a result of her improved performances and a pick up in her support base, I am proposing a Casey Dellacqua forum.
I think that this forum would be quite popular, especially considering Casey's thread in the Tennis Australia and New Zealand Forum has almost 1, 500 posts, making it by far the busiest and most viewed thread in the entire TA and NZL forum.
By creating a Casey Dellacqua forum, us Dellacqua fans would have somewhere to post pictures, results, live scores and chat without having to scroll through pages in a singles thread. And as she continues her path up the WTA Rankings, her fan base will only continue to grow meaning more and more people will be posting in her thread.
Some suggested names include 'Come on Casey,' 'Devine Dellacqua' and my favourite 'Crack em Casey.'

I thank you for reading this and hope to see a new Casey Dellacqua forum in the TA and NZL section very soon.

PS. Whether or not you decide to create a Dellacqua forum I ask you to PLEASE DELETE THE LEANNE BAKER FORUM!! It's driving me nuts NO ONE HAS POSTED IN IT FOR OVER ONE YEAR AND WE HAVE ALREADY MADE A THREAD FOR HER IN THE TA AND NZL FORUM. IN FACT, THERE ARE ONLY 17 POSTS IN THE WHOLE LEANNE BAKER FORUM . I think it's amazing no one has deleted the forum yet...talk about a waste of space...

Re: Request for a Casey Dellacqua Sub-Forum

I totally agree... there are so many of us always talking about Casey, and it would be so much easier if she had a subforum where we could post heaps of different things

As a very popular player on the rise, she obviously deserves one

cheers

I agree as well too. look what she has achieved in the last few months & she is one of our greatest hopes for aussie tennis at the moment so why not put in a sub-forum for her she deserves one to her full credit.

Re: Request for a Casey Dellacqua Sub-Forum

I'm sorry but i don't think the admins will create a forum for Casey, they have pretty high standards now days about which players they create forums for, and she doesn't meet that criteria yet.

Also, I know that the mod for the Tennis Australia and New Zealand forums requested that the Leanne Baker forum be removed, I'm not sure why it is still there

May I inquire as to what the criteria is?

Surely she must be close and met at least some of the criteria by now???

There are plenty of other players in other forums whose sub forums have no traffic what so ever...

Well there is no exact criteria, each player forum is considered individually, but she would at least have to have some wins over top players or go deep in the draws at slams. And probably would need to be ranked at least in the top 30.

Laugh out loud. Then why does Bethanie Mattek whos ranking is below Caseys and hasnt had very good results have her own forum? or that Pavlechenko w/e 15 year old russian.

Re: Request for a Casey Dellacqua Sub-Forum

Well I just looked through a few forums and saw that Sarah Borwell has her own forum AND she doesn't have a blog....

And since Sammy 4 eva has offered to do a Casey blog, isn't that good enough? (Especially considering players like Marta Domatchowska, Anne Keothavong and Sarah Borwell are hardly top 30 athletes)

I don't think blogs are working properly at the moment, but when they are fixed maybe Sammy 4 eva can request to do a blog for Casey
