Dominika Cibulkova hasn’t exactly had the follow-up campaign to her dream 2016 season that she would’ve liked. So far this year, she has yet to make a singles final. Last year she won four tournaments, including the season-ending championship.


Perhaps things will begin to turn around for her after finally entering the winner’s circle—in doubles.

Cibulkova and Kirsten Flipkens won the title at the Ricoh Open in ‘s-Hertogenbosch this past weekend, knocking out the Dutch pair of Kiki Bertens and Demi Schuurs, 4-6, 6-4, 10-6, in the final.

It’s Cibulkova’s first career doubles title, and if she was going to break through, this was probably the venue to do so: Her previous two career doubles finals were at this tournament, in 2011 and 2013.

Unfortunately for Cibulkova, her singles struggles continued into this week. She lost her opener, 5-7, 7-6 (7), 7-5, to Lucie Safarova in Birmingham on Tuesday.
