WTA Tour 2017

Dominika Cibulkova

Dominika Cibulkova might have more momentum than anyone else on tour going into 2017. She is coming off of a debut WTA Tour Finals tournament where she did the impossible.

After upsetting world No. 1 Angelique Kerber to win the WTA Tour Finals, Cibulkova is a must watch this season. At 27-years-old, the Slovak tennis player has a fair amount of experience on tour. She is still, however, just coming into her prime.

She starts the 2017 WTA Tour off at the highest position she has ever been ranked – No. 5. Look for her to take full advantage of the momentum and win several titles this season.
