Cibulková swinging a forehand

In 2014, Steve Tignor of Tennis.com
Tennis.com
labeled Cibulková "a threat to everyone".[56] 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.[57] Self-described as a player with "a lot of energy",[5] Cibulková employs an aggressive style that is largely founded on speed and power.[58] She is recognized for her exceptional racquet-head speed,[56] 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.[56][59] Her aggressive shots have been noted for their ability to force errors or produce winners during extended rallies.[60] When a point ends, Cibulková "refocuses right away," using the pace to pressure opponents or avoid negativity.[57] She typically employs a high ball toss and a hard serve.[57] 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.[56][58] Career statistics[edit] Main article: Dominika Cibulková
