Perspective: Is she proud of herself? Cibulkova said after, “Maybe tomorrow morning I will be 100% proud of myself. But now it’s just maybe like 50% (laughter).” Read Domi’s entire post-match press conference here.

    So many great shots from the Li-Cibulkova final including the first one in this article. It was a much better women’s final than I expected and the speeches were just great from both players. This win is sure to give Li a huge amount of confidence for the season ahead and looking forward to the next time she plays Serena.
