Australia's Casey Dellacqua rewrote the ITF record books with her semifinal win over Misa Eguchi from Japan at the $25,000 Bendigo, Australia ITF Pro Circuit tournament during the week commencing November 21st 2011.

This win, her 29th consecutive singles main draw win on the ITF Pro Circuit, broke the existing record set by Chinese Taipei's Su-Wei Hsieh which had stood for more than nine years! The 26-year old then increased this run to 30 wins as she claimed her sixth title from this magnificent run.

Her 30 match winning streak, which came entirely in her home nation, saw her triumph in 60 sets and lose just three!
