Player of the week: Dominika Cibulkova

As we already predicted a few weeks ago (see post), 18 yo from Slovakia Dominika Cibulkova is one of the most promising players on the WTA Tour. Once again, she has confirmed her potential with an outstanding performance in Amelia Island. Only the best player in the season so far, Maria Sharapova, was able to keep her away from the title.

On her way to the final, Dominika defeated Anastasia Rodionova, 14th seed Viktoria Azarenka, 2nd seed Anna Chakvetadze, 11th seed and former #1 Amelie Mauresmo and promising teen Alize Cornet. With this result she breaks into the Top 30 for the first time in her career, reaching a career-high ranking at #29. Top 20 will be her next step.
