Aussie, Aussie, Aussie..OI OI OI!

Dellacqua underwent shoulder surgery and has been recovering all year

As you may be aware i am pretty passionate about tennis and in particulary, Australian tennis.  So in the lead up to AO the Aussies hit the courts this week for the ultimate wildcard showdown!

Some of the main players in the field were; Aussie favorite Casey Dellacqua, Former World no. 8 Alicia Molik, Up and coming teen; Olivia Rogowska (nearly took out Safina at the USO) and newly crowned boys’ US Open Singles champ Bernard Tomic.

Nothing too exciting this week other than all of those players making it to the Quarters.  There Alicia Molik lost to up and coming teen, Jess Moore – 62 46 64.  Casey Dellacqua was looking for a tough workout today in the aussie sun taking 3 sets to down Queenslander Shannon Golds.  Olivia Rogowska also got through, she now faces Moore who defeated Molik.

In the mens’ field Tomic won. And thats all you need to know.  A few other guys got through as well…

The semis will be played on Saturday.  I really hope Dellacqua gets through because i think she really deserves it, in saying that Rogowska would probably make more of it through the draw?

These matches can be watched on the offical AO website 🙂
