Dominika Cibulkova lashes out at Serbian fans when discussing her cramping episode in February, when she was facing Vesna Dolonc in the Slovak Republic’s 3-2 win in Nis, Serbia. Cibulkova will play Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the semifinal tie in Moscow this weekend.

“It was worst thing, I was winning 6-4, 5-3 and lied down cramping and I couldn’t stand up and it was the worst cramping, the whole body,” she told FedCup.com. “The atmosphere of the people in Serbia was very rude, but we won and that was our satisfaction.”
