Slovakian tennis player Dominika Cibulkova shared her expectations from the meeting with Czech Karoline Pliskova in the second round of the tournament in Dubai.
“After Wimbledon, I showed excellent results. It gave me confidence. Before the Australian tournaments, I felt great in training, so I was very upset after two defeats in the starting rounds. I feel that I am gradually taking shape. I had a hard time because I got sick in St. Petersburg and could not play in the “Fed Cup”. I did not have enough matches.
I finally won my first match of the year! Sometimes it happens. Need confidence to win matches. Even if at training everything turns out great, it does not always affect the result of the match. I kept a positive attitude and tried to play my tennis. I knew that as soon as I dial a move, everything will be fine.
In a match with Pliskova, it will not be easy for me. I will just try to do my best. Let’s see what happens, “- quotes Dominica press service of the Tour.
