Hope she will be more succesful then.
Would be a shame to lose one of the distinctly recognizable personalities on tour. Especially since she has game and credentials.

Would be the most substantial and somewhat early retirement of a top player since Dementieva (disregarding injury related ones).

I consider Ivanovic to have been under par and on the way out anyway, with Pome it's a real bombshell.

Re: BOMBSHELL : Dominika Cibulkova Considering Retirement

It would be crazy to retire now. Listen to your Momma Domi.

I suppose making only the third round of the AO this year must have been pretty disheartening. That and having to play Ostapenko, I imagine is enough to depress anyone.

No Cibulkova, you can't retire now! What a waste!! Have babies later, you will regret it when you can't play when you're older...

Her retirement party will take place in an elevator.

Re: BOMBSHELL : Dominika Cibulkova Considering Retirement

Cibulkova always strikes me as a slam contender , has all the attributes apart from maybe the serve but even in that department she's improved slightly, it use to be worse.

The problem is, she's normally gassed out once she reaches a final, puts so much effort in all her matches, plays the right way, front foot attacking tennis so i hope she wins one this year.

Re: BOMBSHELL : Dominika Cibulkova Considering Retirement

She could reduce her workload a lot, if she stopped taking selfies in every elevator.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

Re: BOMBSHELL : Dominika Cibulkova Considering Retirement

After her last match if I were her I would also
consider retirment

But she is playing her best tennis and is a great addition for the Tour.
