Personal

Cibulková was introduced to tennis at the age of eight in Piešťany. She was eleven when her family moved to Bratislava. She lists clay and hard as her favorite surfaces.

Her signature expression, “Pome,” translates to “Let’s go” or “Come on” in English. With the help of her friend Marion Bartoli, she began a clothing line featuring this statement in 2014.

She likes dogs and has two Yorkshire terriers which accompany her on tour.

Playing style

In 2014, Steve Tignor of Tennis.com labeled Cibulková “a threat to everyone”.

Self-described as a player with “a lot of energy”, Cibulková employs an aggressive style that is largely founded on speed and power.She is recognized for her exceptional racquet-head speed, which enables her to produce deep groundstrokes with her forehand and powerful shots with her backhand. She is also known for approaching the net and finishing points with swing volleys.Her aggressive shots have been noted for their ability to force errors or produce winners during extended rallies.

On defense, she often attacks second serves with quick forehands, and hits prompt returns while taking the ball on the rise. Occasionally, she will break a prolonged rally by mixing in a drop shot. Her lower body strength creates quickness around the court, enabling her to reach and return shots.
