Cibulková swinging a forehand
In 2014, Steve Tignor of
Tennis.com labeled Cibulková "a threat to
everyone". In describing her style, he later stated that "any
player, from top pros to rank amateurs, can learn a thing or two from
how Cibulková approaches the game," citing aggression, positive body
language, and a quick pace between points.
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.
When a point ends, Cibulková "refocuses right away," using the pace
to pressure opponents or avoid negativity. She typically employs a
high ball toss and a hard serve.
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.
