Dominika Cibulkova took out top seed Anabel Medina Garrigues in the 2nd round of the Nordic Light Open today
One of my favorite players, Anabel Medina Garrigues, number 1 seed at the Nordic Light Open, was defeated today by Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. Cibulkova served for the match at 5-2, but was broken; however, she served it out successfully at 5-3. I saw Cibulkova play in Charleston this year, and I was very impressed. She easily beat the number 1 qualifying seed, and it looked for a while that she might even take out Tatiana Golovin. Her overall play was excellent, and her drop shots were memorable. Final score today: 6-3, 6-7, 6-3
