Donna Vekic Vs. Dominika Cibulkova
Having won the WTA Finals in fine style at the end of last season, there was plenty of expectation around the Slovakian heading into the New Year, but she hasn’t quite hit her strides in 2017. Cibulkova needed three sets to see off Shuai Zhang in her first match of the year in Brisbane, but she came unstuck in the next round, beaten by eventual Brisbane finalist, Alize Cornet. It was a similar story for Cibulkova in Sydney, as the world number five began with victory over Germany’s Laura Siegemund, but lost to Eugenie Bouchard in the next round.
Cibulkova stuttered into the third round at the Australian Open, recording uncomfortable straight-set victories over Denisa Allertova and Su-Wei Hsieh, but she fell to Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova. Cibulkova got to the quarter finals in St. Petersburg last season, losing to teen sensation, Daria Kasatkina in three tight sets after beating Evgeniya Rodina and Caroline Wozniacki in the opening rounds. She starts off this year against Croatia’s Donna Vekic – the 20-year-old who is still struggling with the transition from being an excellent junior to a consistent WTA campaigner.
