Cibulkova Wins Eastbourne for First Grass Court Title

Dominika Cibulkova

(June 25, 2016) Dominika Cibulkova won her second title of the year and her first career title on grass when she beat Czech Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 6-3 Saturday for the Eastbourne International title.
“It was extremely tough match today,” said the winner. “With the conditions and with the wind it was really, really, really tough to play and focus. That’s why I was really strong about today that I was — in the beginning I was a little bit nervous about the wind, so my serve wasn’t really working really well.

“Then when my coach came, he said, you know, Just focus on your serve. Don’t focus too much on the wind. Do the same things when there is no wind.

“So, yeah, I was in the rallies and I found my rhythm after a while. You know, I was just feeling really good on the court. I knew what I had to do. I was going for my forehands and was really solid on the backhand.

“I was also returning pretty well. So all these things came together, and that’s why I won today.”
“This one is really special one,” the Slovak said about taking home her sixth career tournament trophy. “You know, this is a special title. It’s second title of the year. I was never able to win two titles in one year. We’re in the half of the season and this is my second one. So it feels just great. It’s my first one on the grass.

“This tournament, I would say it’s the toughest one before the Grand Slam, because, you know, everybody want to play on grass and this is a big one. So, you know, the competition here was really strong. I was able to beat the top players on the grass, so it gives me a lot of confidence.”
Pliskova, who was seeking to add a second grass court title in three weeks fell a little short on Saturday.
“She was playing some good tennis,” Pliskova said. “Me, I was playing so-so, sometimes good, sometimes bad. But she didn’t let me to play my game. She was playing aggressive and going to my serves.

“Like I said, she was just a little bit better. I think I had a lot of chances. I didn’t play that bad in those chances what I had some break points.”

Cibulkova Wins Twice To Reach Eastbourne Final Against Pliskova

Dominika Cibulkova

Dominika Cibulkova

(June 24, 2016) Dominika Cibulkova needed to win twice on Friday to reach the final of the Eastbourne International. The Slovak toppled the No. 1 seed and former champion Agnieszka Radwanska 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-3 in a quarterfinal which was completed over two days due to the weather.
In her semifinal, the former Australian Open finalist dominated qualifier Monica Puig of Puerto Rico 6-2, 6-1.

Dominika Cibulkova reached the Eastbourne International final after dispatching Puerto Rican qualifier Monica Puig 6-2, 6-1 on Friday.

“It was not easy emotionally because, you know, I was really happy when I beat her on the grass,” Cibulkova said of her win over the top seed. “We played — this was third really, really close match against Radwanska this year and on different surface, first time on grass. For me it was toughest to play her on grass because what I take advantage of her second serve — because she’s playing weak second serve, and I always go for it on the shot, and here on the grass it’s a little bit tougher. It’s really low and you cannot go for it so much.

“But in the rallies I felt really good. I was just — you know, I felt every shot I knew I was going for my forehand, and I was really strong on my backhand.

“And then to come back against a completely different player, against aggressive player, and I knew she doesn’t want to play long rallies with me. She was really going after my serve and everything. So I had to change tactic in my game a little bit.

“I was able to do it. It was great.”

Well, it’s always a good match, but I don’t think I was playing good enough today,” Radwanska said. “I think she was playing really aggressive, good tennis. I think I step backwards a little bit too much. That wasn’t helping today.”

“I don’t think I was playing good enough today,” Radwanska said. “She was playing really aggressive, good tennis.”

Radwanska led 6-4, 2-0 before the rains came on Thursday.

“Never know how it’s gonna happen if we finished that match yesterday,” she said. “But definitely different conditions today. The mornings are a bit different. It was pretty sunny and windy. Yesterday a bit different. Well, but conditions are same for the both of us.”

Cibulkova will take on Karolina Pliskova for the crown. The Czech bested Britain’s Johanna Konta 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-3 in the semifinals and Elena Vesnina in the quarterfinals 6-1, 6-3.
Pliskova will be attempting to win her second grass court titles in three weeks. She won the Nottingham two weekends ago.

“Definitely I had great results this year on grass except the one in Birmingham, but it was after a tough week in Nottingham,” she said. “But I still was able to win the doubles there. So at least something.

“And so far I’m happy with the tennis the way I’m playing here this week. This was the toughest match this week but happy to be through. Looking forward to the final.”
“She had also some good wins this week, and I think she’s also improving with every match. It’s going to be tough, a little bit different game than today. She’s also playing faster from the baseline but not serving that good.

“Yeah, but for me still the same. I have to keep my game plan to serve well and to play aggressive. There is no other way for me how to play, and especially on grass. Just looking forward to the final.

“We played once few years ago on hard court. She won. Was close match. Happy to play someone who I didn’t play for such a long time.”

Radwanska Advances as Konta Takes Down Kvitova in Eastbourne

Agniezska Radwanska

Agniezska Radwanska

 

(June 22, 2016) No. 1 seed Agnieszka Radwanska moved into the quarterfinals of the Eastbourne International with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Eugenie Bouchard on Wednesday.

The Polish woman was happy with her performance. “I think that was much better match than yesterday,” she said. “Well, I think good match from the beginning till the end.

“Couple of breaks on the way, but I think my serve was also the key in that match. Very happy I could come back in that second set in the end and winning in two sets.”

2009 champion, Caroline Wozniacki did not fare as well, beated by qualifier Monica Puig 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Wozniacki, trying to get back on track from a foot injury said “I mean, you don’t climb Mount Everest in one day.

“No, I played really well. I’m really happy with that. Yeah, the foot, the body’s feeling good. I’m pleased with that.”

“I served quite well for a while there, and then just for a couple of games in the end of the second set, yeah, I think I didn’t get the first serves in or she just went for the returns and it went in.

“But, you know, it’s the small margins today, really. To be honest, I think I played really well yesterday and I think I played even better today.

“So it’s a lot of positives to take with you. At the end of the day on grass sometimes it can be that little thing that can just make a difference.

“Yeah, I think I can just look up from here and just bring that confidence with me to Wimbledon and just hope for a good draw.”

“I thought I was in trouble quite a few times just when the match started getting very even,” Puig said. “She’s a great player and she makes you work for every single point, so it was really up to me to stay very focused in my game plan and what I wanted to accomplish out there in the court.

“All in all it was a really tight match. Like the score I think doesn’t really reflect just how tight it was. I’m just really happy I got through.”

Fifth seed Petra Kvitova lost to Britain’s Johanna Konta 5-7, 6-4, 6-0.

“There was a match in it definitely at the beginning, and I was happy with how I was able to carry but also create more momentum going into that third,” said Konta who lost the first set after having a 5-2 lead.

“Overall I thought the match was played at a very good level for both of us. I think it just, yeah, was about being able to string together a few more points. I thought I maybe may have done that a bit better than her today.”

(June 21, 2016) Third seed and defending champion Belinda Bencic lost to 2013 winner Elena Vesnina 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) on Tuesday in the second round of the Eastbourne International.

Top seed Agnieszka Radwanska moved on when her opponent Mirjana Lucic-Baroni retired with gastrointestinal illness with the Polish woman leading Radwanska led 6-4, 2-1.

“She was still playing great tennis, very powerful game, very consistent,” said Radwanska. “So I was surprised that something happened to her.”

“Well, very tough conditions today,” Radwanska said. “I think the first day that it was really windy. And with her powerful game, sometimes it’s hard to find a right rhythm from the beginning.

“But, well, is not easy match for the first round as well here. But, well, still happy that I could win that one-and-a-half sets and ready for the next one.”

Second seed Roberta Vinci lost to 2010 champion Ekaterina Makarova 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. A total of ten seeded players lost on Tuesday including fourth seed Timea Bacsinszky, sixth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova and eighth seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Fifth seed and two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova advanced with a straight sets win over Timea Babos.

“I think that I’m kind of feeling that I am playing well, even though I kind of lost some of the matches in a couple of months,” Kvitova said. “But I think it’s pretty good.

“The main thing is to stay healthy, for sure. Otherwise I feel good. I think that the mental side should be a little bit, you know, stronger.”

Caroline Wozniacki is into the third round by dominating seventh seed Samantha Stosur 6-2, 6-1.

“I feel good, said the Dane. “The ankle is feeling good. As long as I’m stable and moving well, it feels good.

“I’m pleased with the way I have been playing. You know, the first match I played quite well, but today I feel I played even better. Hopefully there is more tennis to come.”

Former Champs Makarova, Vesnina Advance in Eastbourne; Watson Loses

Ekaterina Makarova

Ekaterina Makarova

(June 20, 2016) Former Eastbourne champions, Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina advanced to second round on Monday beating British players. 2010 winner Makarova survived five set points in the first set to beat Tara Moore 7-5, 6-4, while 2013 title holder Vesnina defeated Heather Wartson 6-2, 6-3.

“I definitely didn’t play well today,” Watson said. “I felt really out of timing and slow to the ball.

“But I’m not taking anything away from Elena. She played very well. And when I had my chances to come back and get into the match, she hit an ace or always made her first serve and played well.”

Vesnina will take on defending champion Belinda Bencic next. Bencic had to withdraw from Birmingham during her first round match last week. The Swiss says she’s ready to go.

“I have been doing the physio treatment all day,” she said. “Yesterday I was practicing, so I should be fine. I still tape it a lot, so it’s a little bit hurting but it’s okay.”

Asked about feeling pressure in defending her title, Bencic said: “No. I mean, why would I feel pressure? Of course it’s points, but every time someone is defending points somewhere. So I guess it’s just a normal situation. And I don’t feel any pressure and no expectation because I haven’t played a lot of matches lately.

“I’m just trying to, you know, get the matches in and just keep going. Yeah, just have fun and obviously I’m so glad to be back on the courts, so that’s the most important.”

Youzhny, Edmund Advance in Nottingham

Youzhny

(June 20, 2016) Fresh off a Stuttgart quarterfinal, former Top 10 player, Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny won just his fifth first round match this season beating Teymuraz Gabashvili of Ukraine 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the opening round of Nottingham on Monday.

The Russian, who last won an ATP title back in 2013, has bounced back into the top 100 playing Challenger events to raise his ranking.

Great Britain’s Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans will be looking to reach the third round of the Aegon Open Nottingham on a jam-packed Tuesday, with all 17 singles matches and four doubles ties scheduled to go ahead at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.

British No. 3 Edmund, who reached a career-high ranking of 68 after his quarterfinal run at the Aegon Championships at the Queen’s Club last week, will face Ukrainian fourth seed and last year’s Aegon Open semi-finalist Alexandr Dolgopolov, while British No. 4 Evans will be up third on Centre Court against Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis.

After his 6-4, 6-3 win over Czech Lukas Rosol on a rain-interrupted Monday, Edmund said: “He’s a very dangerous player – you don’t know what to expect with him. I played him earlier this year on clay so I knew what his game style was, but grass is very different.

“It was a solid match, I came off feeling very good about my game and how I managed the match.”

Ahead of his match against Dolgopolov, the 21-year-old added: “It will be a tough match. I lost to him in the first round last year at Wimbledon. He’s a very tricky player, not someone who you play regularly in terms of his shot-making. He mixes it up well, slices it a lot, awkward slices.”

Elsewhere top seed Kevin Anderson will begin his campaign against Croat Ivan Dodig, while Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco will take on Victor Estrella Burgos of the Dominican Republic. Defending champion Denis Istomin and Bosnian Damir Dzumhur will have to play out a final set to decide their first-round tie for the right to play 11-seed Vasek Pospisil, with the score locked at 6-1 6-7(4).

In addition, fifth seed and 2015 Aegon Open runner-up Sam Querrey has an all-American clash with qualifier Ernesto Escobedo first on Court 1, before Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, who reached the semi-final stage in the East Midlands last year and is seeded ninth this year, will play Evgeny Donskoy of Russia.

British wildcards James Ward, Brydan Klein and Alex Ward all lost in the first round.
