Top seed falls in Stockholm

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

In other Nordic Light news, Caroline Wozniacki defeated Elena Vesnina, 7-5, 6-1. This sets up a contest between phenom Woznicacki and phenom Agnieszka Radwasnska in the next round.
