Slovakian tennis beauty Dominika Cibulkova showed that she's much more than just another pretty face by finishing 2008 at very respectable 19 th place in the world. Since she started the year outside the top 50, climbing to No.19 spot is very admirable result, especially since she already felt the taste of victory over some big names like Venus Williams, Anna Chakvetadze, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic.
As you can see potential is there, and since she has now tasted the blood of high ranked opposition she could well be the positive surprise in 2009. This Slovak Women's Tennis Player Award winner for 2008 is on her way to top ten. All she needs now is more consistency. We believe she has more than enough to enter the top ten in the upcoming year.
