It is possible with most of the top 10 in free fall + Bartoli. Her game has improved but we will see if her mentality will be there against someone that will push her to give her best. Hopefully she can i want her, Petrova, and Kirilenko to get in.

If she finds some consistency on her game instead of being a bi-polar mess at times than yes. Hopefully she'll do it this season

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

Of course not. She's not good enough.

But then again, seeing that she has a row of downward-spiralling mugs like Wozniacki and Stosur and Bartoli ahead of her in the rankings, you never know.

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

As we know Domi has won the current world #8 Petra Kvitova and #7 Sara Errani, and she will play against #5 Angelique Kerber in semi-final. Angie should be the hardest test for her so far.

Pome is surely an old acquaintance to Vika fans from Miami 2012 and Roland Garros 2012, but in the long run she should be more consistent especially against lower ranked players in the early rounds. That´s the only way to get and stay for a longer time in top 10.

What are her chances to make it from her current no.15 into top 10?
Too early to gauge! Kvitova & Errani can't possibly be any players' best measuring stick atm

Kvitova and Errani are about the most useless top 10 players right now.

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

She is still 1200 points behind the 11th spot and last week she lost badly to Stephens. Then if the current level of play by Kvitova, Stosur, Wozniacki and Bartoli continues it won´t take much to reach the top 10.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

I believe she can. So far this week she is playing a style somewhere between where she was in 2009 and when she became a ballbasher. If she can continue working on her consistency and find a medium somewhere between those two game styles I don't see why she can't reach the top 10.

Please tell me how Wozniacki and Stosur had a better start of the season

At least Sara made a QF.

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

I hope so. I'd love her drawing Azarenka in Melbourne, beating her again like at RG and cracking the TOP10.

Things can change very quickly. You're only as good or bad as your last tournament.

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

I think she will, but not sure if she will be able to stay there for a long time, we'll see. But, as someone already said, if Errani is there... Just joking, I have nothing against Errani, I wish her well, but I do consider her the weakest link in top 10 (Stosur comes close 2nd weakest)

Re: Will Dominika Cibulkova crack top 10 this season?

I like the changes her hitting partner was making late last year to her game and now having a new coach should help more.

She needs to do more than want it. She needs to believe she can do it and belong there. Which I'm not sure she has before.

However, I'm reserving my vote until after tonight's match. Win or lose, how she handles the match will prove more than the Kvitova and Errrani matches did.

Dominika Cibulková · Elena Vesnina · Garbińe Muguruza
Kristýna Plíšková · Gabriela Dabrowski · Sabine Lisicki · Stefanie Vögele · Lauren Davis · Aleksandra Krunić · Karolina Plíšková

Angelique Kerber · Andrea Petković
