Wiki

Dominika Cibulková (born 6 May 1989 in Piešťany, Czechoslovakia, now Slovakia) is a Slovak professional tennis player. She is also a former World Junior No. 3, achieving that ranking in May 2005. Her career-high ranking of World No. 12 was achieved on 6 July 2009. As of 29 August 2011, she will be ranked World No. 15 after reaching the quarterfinals of the 2011 Wimbledon Championships earlier in the season. Her best result was reaching the semifinals of the 2009 French Open.

Cibulková began playing tennis between the ages of seven and nine and grew up in Bratislava, Slovakia. She can speak both Slovak and English.

She lists clay and hard as her favourite surfaces, and has thus far proved to be most proficient on a hard surface. She has named Kim Clijsters as the player she admires most. She became a professional tennis player in 2005, after having played one ITF event in Prague at the end of 2004. Due to her small size, she has frequently been compared to former top 20 player Amanda Coetzer.
