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.

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