Is Dominika Cibulkova the Amanda Coetzer of this generation?

Amanda Coetzer entered the top-20 on the women's world rankings in 1992 and remained there for most of the next 10 years. She developed a reputation for regularly beating players who were higher ranked than her as she climbed to her career high ranking of World No. 3 in 1997. As a result of her many upset wins and her small size, she earned the nickname "The Little Assassin."

Coetzer's best result at grand slam: AO-SF, FO-SF, W-4R, USO-QF

Coetzer's Height: 158 cm (5 ft 2½ in)

Dominika has broken into the Top 20 a few years ago and has been a regular member of the Top 20 since then. She has climbed as high as #12 in the ranking so far. And like Coetzer, she also often beat players who were ranked than her (Wozniacki, Kuznetsova, Zvonareva, etc.) She is also one of the smallest players on the tour.

Cibulkova's best result at grand slam so far: AO-4R, FO-SF, W-QF, USO-QF

Cibulkova's Height: 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m)

Do you think Domi will break into the Top 10, even the Top 5 like what Amanda did in the 1990s?

Re: Is Dominika Cibulkova the Amanda Coetzer of this generation?

Cibulkova is so not gonna get to number 3

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It still baffles me how Domi reached the Wimby QF. IIRC she hadn't won a single match on grass in her first 3 years on tour or something.

Its quite a good comparison really but Dominika is probably more aggressive than Amanda ever was. It will be interesting to see how she develops over the next few years.

Coetzer is far better than her.

Cibulkova will be lucky to have a Sugiyama type career singles wise.

Re: Is Dominika Cibulkova the Amanda Coetzer of this generation?

she have career more like her country woman Daniela Hantuchovα both women have talent no doubt and could cause upset but always lose at the big moments or when the need to win the most. for example Hantuchova losing in SF at 2008 Australian Open Ivanović and this year 2011 French Open to Kuznetsova in 4th, and same with Cibulkova losing 2009 French Open to Safina in SF. & so far both Career finals are bad, hopefully they get together for 2012.

Cibulkova could only dream of beating the best player in her generation 4 times!

and who is the best player of her generation? Serena isn't from the same generation as Domi.

Dominica is a regular top 20 player ? I guess I am not checking rankings as often as I should.
