Dominika Cibulkova News
Top seed Dominika Cibulkova is the only player in the Hungarian Ladies Open draw who has been a Top 10 player. Being the most accomplished player on the field makes her an obvious favorite for the title. This is Cibulkova’s first WTA International event of the year. In fact, Cibulkova played only one International tournament last season (Ricoh Open, Hertogenbosch).
Cibulkova didn’t face many complications in taking out the local Hungarian wildcard, the 19-year-old Fanny Stollar in straight sets (6-3 6-3). This was Cibulkova’s first match in nearly two years (Fed Cup, April 2016, Francoise Abanda) against someone not ranked in the Top 200. Putting 74% first serves in and winning 72% of those points, the Slovak wrapped up her tournament debut match in 77 minutes.
Kirsten Flipkens News
After losing three matches in a row, Kirsten Flipkens won the first round match in Budapest, knocking out the Romanian #5, Monica Niculescu, in straight sets (6-3 7-5). Before this match, all of Flipkens’ wins in 2018 have come in January, in the run-up to the Australian Open. The most significant victory of her season is a straight set win against Donna Vekic (#54) in the first round of Auckland.
Flipkens had a pretty ordinary 2017, to say the least, as in eight tournaments she exited in the first round and, in nine, she could not win more than one match. The only significant week she had in the entire year was at New Haven, where she defeated Tsurenko and Bogdan to reach the quarterfinal (as a qualifier). We can draw a conclusion and reach a final tennis pick for Dominika Cibulkova vs Kirsten Flipkens
