Really now?
Yet Nadia Petrova, the same player people are defending in this thread was the player that choked when she pretty much had Cibulkova's draw.
Nadia choked against Maria.
Cibulkova crushed Maria.

Maria crushed herself. Cibulkova couldn't even crush a fly if she wanted to, Maria played 39834983893893 times better vs Petrova.

Re: Dominika Cibulkova TOP 10 PROJECT | 3 wins away!

There is no denying that Maria played the best match of her comeback against Nadia at Roland Garros. She played arguably her worst against Dominika. So, I'm not buying that argument that Domi is better than Nadia through Maria.

It's called a counter-puncher.
The fact is Maria had trouble getting the ball past Cibulkova just as Szavay did.
She let them implode by keeping the ball in play and hitting with enough depth to not let either control the majority of the rallies.

Added to that Maria was absolutely shattered by the time the QF came around after having got through 4 really tight 3 set matches in a row before she faced Domi and on the back of very little match practice pre-RG. I agree though Masha played brilliant in the first set in particular against Nadia - its the closest she's looked to her old self since she came back.

Maria will always have a good matchup against Nadia.
Nadia moves slower than Maria if not worse when it comes to defense and her follow thru on her forehand is tough to deal with against Maria's flatter forehand.

Cibulkova has flatter and more compact shots.
She thrives on pace. Maria only had one gear at the French and Cibulkova ate it up as Dulko did at Wimbledon.
One thing Dulko did against Maria is mix it up and go for a more compact flatter forehand unless she had a chance to really follow thru.

Sometimes I wonder if some of you really look at these players shots and matchups before commenting.

Re: Dominika Cibulkova TOP 10 PROJECT | 3 wins away!

During past 12 months Domi has beaten all the players that are the main contenders for the 10th place: Petrova, Bartoli and Ivanovic. She's actually 5:1 against them in that period. Don't see any reason why anyone should make a big deal out of her being inside Top 10 as she belongs there as during past year she certainly wasn't much worse than the other 3 players.

Re: Dominika Cibulkova TOP 10 PROJECT | 3 wins away!

It doesn't matter too much. The gap between 9 and 10 is huge and as Ivanovic finds form, she will find herself back in the Top 10 easily. She is 48292 levels above Domi, Marion, and Nadia when she is playing well.

Re: Dominika Cibulkova TOP 10 PROJECT | 3 wins away!

Sorry, but when Domi is playing on 100% she can beat everyone. When you saw Hopman cup she fought against Safina and Domi won. It was exciting match Ana better than Domi? No way...They are on the same. Ana is 2 years older and before 2 years she was there, where is almost Domi now and Ana is not in the best form now while Domi is playing at her best

Re: Dominika Cibulkova TOP 10 PROJECT | 3 wins away!

No way can you say Peak Domi = Peak Ana.

ANA HAS A SLAM!! And has made 2 other grand slam finals. She has beaten all the top players, won Indian wells, I could go on and on.

And you say they are even because Domi beat DINARA in the HOPMAN CUP??!?

You're CRAZY to think they are even. Absolutely off your rocker.

Solid if very un-stellar. A lot of her good (non RG) results are from 2008.

I guess thats what you get when you give so much weighting to the slams?

Radwanska who has nothing to defend until US Open? And she's 1-0 last year(3-0 career) against Cibulkova, with the match including a nice bagel

Agreed. And for a counter puncher, Dominika hits the ball pretty well. She does not have overwhelming power but she can step it up and dictate when she can. Down 5-1/5-2, she crushed Jankovic in Montreal. From what I read in reports, she dictated against Dementieva in Montreal.

Cibulkova will be the weakest top-tenner in ages. Probably since Habsudova.

at most people here.

Why would somebody "not deserve" a top 10 spot anyway? Domi fought hard for it and has the results, so well done to her. Can't wait to see the moment that she's actually gonna make it
