Erakovic to face 11th seeds at tennis Open

11:30 am on 22 January 2010

New Zealand tennis player Marina Erakovic and her Australian doubles partner Casey Dellaqua will face the 11th seeds in their first round doubles match at the Australia Open today.

Erakovic was disappointed in her first round singles effort, going down to China's Li Na 6-3, 6-love.

But she says she fancies her chances in the doubles with Dellacqua, despite facing up to the 11th seeded Russians Alla Kudryavtseva and Ekaterina Makarova.
