Who is the better player, Maria Kirilenko or Dominika Cibulkova?

These 2 young beauties have been members of WTA Top 30, even Top 20 for basically almost their entire career so far but haven't managed to break into the Top 10 yet. Who do you think is the better player? Do you think they will break into the Top 10 one day?



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Domi definitely has better achievements. Better player? Makiri then.

Domi has better slam results and a higher career-high rank. Kiri has more titles (though none since 2008). Edge to Domi.

Plus Domi snatched Caro's wig twice this year .

I think, Kiri is a little bit more talented player (and more various), Domi is mentally stronger... i voted for Domi

Re: Who is the better player, Maria Kirilenko or Dominika Cibulkova?

I think currently Kirilenko is the better player Maria took Serena 2 three sets in stanford, had that classic that she lost but played great at the US Open against Sam, she then went on to beat Sam twice afterwards in consecutive weeks. Domi is the type of player who can be on fire one match then play like my nan in a wheelchair the next. Maria is also more consistent i think which is why i vote her.

It says who is the better player not who's had the better slam result. Maria has had tough luck with slam draws where as Domi beat a Beyond tired Sharapova in the 2009 RG QF. And that SF showing was 2 and a half years ago now.

Kiri. The "new" Cibulkova is better on grass, but that's it.

Definitely Cibulkova cause of her achievements. She was a point away from double bageling Maria at RG . And she reached Wimbledon QF .

Kirilenko is a pusher.

Cibulkova. Better winning % against top 10 players, a game that's more threatening and translates better to all the surfaces and better GS results/ranking.

Yes, she's more of a threat to top players than Kirilenko.

Domi has to work on her consistency though.

Cibulkova, but both are mediocre and will probably never even crack the top 10.
