Cibulkova surprises Radwanska to take Stanford title

Dominika Cibulkova defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 3-6 6-4 6-4 to take the Stanford title, reversing a 6-0 6-0 rout to the Polish #4 earlier in the year at Sydney.

“It was big deal for me because I never beat Aga before and she’s a really tough competitor and I had to earn every point. It was really tough physically and mentally. That’s why I am so happy that I won.” stated Cibulkova following the match.

The 24 year old Slovakian dropped the opening set, but recovered to break Radwanska in the second to force a final set championship decider. Radwanska marched out to a 4-2 lead but was quickly broken back.

Cibulkova then took control of the final games, before unleashing a backhand winner to take the match and the championship.
