Dellacqua to face Jovanovksi

Casey Dellacqua will face rising Serbian Bojana Jovanovski in the first round of Australian Open 2012.

The draw for the first Grand Slam tournament of the year was completed at Melbourne Park today with 2011 champions Kim Clijsters and Novak Djokovic in attendance.

Dellacqua, who received a wildcard into the event, will be hoping to replicate the form she displayed at the end of 2011 when she captured five consecutive Australian Pro Tour titles.

The West Australian native has played Jovanovski twice, with the 72nd-ranked Serb taking the honours on both occasions.

Their most recent match was in Brisbane last week, which Jovanovski won in straight sets.

Currently ranked No.135, should Dellacqua make it through to the second round, she faces a potential match-up with third seed Victoria Azarenka.
