Alisa. Could have been much easier if she took advantage of those MPs in the second set though.

Good fight for Domi in the 2nd set, but Alisa just too consistent though..

Alisa's going to give herself an ABI the way she yanks her head on every ball.

Kleybanova won with excellent games in the end of the match but it is good to see Domi playing with agression and attacking mode. Today it was perhaps not being perfect but if she will keep going, she will have a great year.

Re: Sydney QF: Alisa Kleybanova df. Domi Cibulkova 63 57 62

Cibulkova did not start great but played better and better in this match. Strong comeback to save mps in second set. Long important game at 2-2 in the 3rd where Dominika on break point almost had a putaway ball to pass Kleybanova at the net, but instead hit her passing shot right to Kleybanova who had her racket in the right place for the volley. Kleybanova too strong in the end.

Pretty good match.

Alisa should have served this out & won in 2 sets. But I like what she's doing. Taking a little pace off & getting steadier.
