Listed at 5'3" Dominika Cibulkova is one of the shortest women in the Top 50, but has used her quick feet and potent ground strokes to diffuse some of the biggest names on the WTA. Cibulkova became the second woman from Slovakia to reach the semis of a Grand Slam when she advanced to that round at the 2009 Roland Garros. She achieved a career-high ranking of No. 12 that year, when she also reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. In 2011, Cibulkova upset No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki en route to the Wimbledon quarterfinals to become the third Slovak to beat a top-ranked woman. Four months later, Cibulkova captured her first career title in Moscow. The second-seeded Cibulkova beat top-seeded Marion Bartoli, 6-1, 7-5, to win her second career title in Carlsbad in July, 2012, and score her 14th Top 10 win. In July, 2013, Cibulkova beat top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska to win her third career title at Stanford. In January, 2014, Cibulkova defeated four seeds in succession — Carla Suarez Navarro, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep and Agnieszka Radwanska — to reach her first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open where she lost to Li Na, 7-6, 6-0. Cibulkova represented Slovakia in the 2008 Olympics. Cibulkova, who once dated ATP pro Jurgen Melzer, cites fashion and dancing among her hobbies.
