Dellacqua, Duckworth given Aussie Open wildcards
Dellacqua lost in the first round of a play-off tournament to 15-year-old Ashleigh Barty.

Melbourne: Casey Dellacqua has been given a wild-card entry to the Australian Open barely a week after losing in the first round of a play-off tournament to 15-year-old Wimbledon Junior champion Ashleigh Barty.

Tennis Australia announced on Wednesday that Dellacqua, who has been ranked as high as No. 39, and 19-year-old James Duckworth had been given wildcards into women's and men's main draws for the January 16-29 Australian Open.

After missing much of the last two seasons with shoulder and foot injuries, Dellacqua went on a 30-match winning streak in ITF Pro Tour events starting in September.

Barty and Marinko Matosevic won the wildcard play-off finals on Sunday to earn main-draw spots at the first Grand Slam event of 2012. Matosevic beat Duckworth in the men's final.
