Dominika Cibulkova, Christina McHale to vie for Mexican Open title

March 1, 2014 at 1:33 AM

ACAPULCO, Mexico, March 1 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Dominika Cibulkova won her semifinal match in a walkover Friday and will meet American Christina McHale for the title of the Mexican Open.

Slovakia's Cibulkova, this year's Australian Open runner-up, moved into the Acapulco final when eighth-seeded Zhang Shuai retired after going down 4-2 in the first set.

McHale, meanwhile, had to stage an impressive rally to overcome France's Caroline Garcia 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in the night's second semifinal.

The 21-year-old will be looking to corral her first career title against world No. 13 Cibulkova, who is 3-6 all-time in finals.
