Dominika Cibulkova, who beat world No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska for the first time in the final of the Bank of the West Classic, says she has the game to be a Top 10 player, but needs to develop the mentality of one. The Slovakian is currently ranked No. 21.

“I believe I can reach the Top 10, but every time I get close I feel so much pressure and I feel these expectations, which is sometimes too much,” the 24-year-old said. “Maybe when I get enough experience, and it could be this year, or next year.”
