Dellacqua makes a return at Malaysian Open

KUALA LUMPUR: Australia’s Casey Dellacqua will return to compete in the US$235,000 BMW Malaysian Open tennis championships at the Royal Selangor Golf Club (RSGC) from Feb 25-March 3.

Besides Dellacqua, Taiwan’s Chang Kai-chen, Japan’s Misaki Doi and Kurumi Nara, Australia’s Ashleigh Barty and Olivia Rogowska have also confirmed their participation.

Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, defending champion Hsieh Su-wei and Japan’s top player Ayumi Morita had earlier confirmed their participation.

Dellacqua proved to be a revelation at the Australian Open in January.

She partnered Barty to reach the women’s doubles final.

However they lost to Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci of Italy in the final.

Aslina Chua, S. Theiviya and Yus Syazlin Nabila will represent Malaysia after being awarded wild cards.
