Casey falls to Bartoli

Casey Dellacqua has been defeated by Marion Bartoli in her first round match at Wimbledon 2012.

The ninth seed had too much firepower for Dellacqua who fought hard but didn’t have the answers on what proved to be a tough day for Australian players at Wimbledon.

Dellacqua will remain in London where she will play doubles with Sam Stosur. Their first match is against Sorana Cirstea and Ayumi Morita.
