Cibulkova battle through round-robin clash against Halep to reach WTA Finals semi-finals 


It took Dominika Cibulkova one hour and 50 minutes to claim a 6-3 7-6(5) triumph, and it was a quick start from the Slovakian as she went an early break up in the first set.

The 27-year-old’s break point was the only one created in the opening set, but it was a frantic second set with both players losing serve three times.

Simona Halep came close to taking advantage, but Cibulkova saved two break points before forcing a tie-break, which she sealed 7-5 to keep her campaign alive.

Dominika Cibulkova also confirmed her place in the semi-finals of the WTA Finals after Angelique Kerber defeated Madison Keys in straight sets.
