Dominika Cibulkova is currently in Sydney, playing the Premier-level Australian Open warm-up, and she’s doing great – after beating Petra Kvitova 6-1 6-1 in the first round, she defeated Ekaterina Makarova, and the progression hasn’t stopped, as the Slovakian eliminated third seed Sara Errani 6-2 6-1 hours ago in the quarterfinals. But that’s not all we’ll remember Cibulkova’s Apia International Sydney for. In an interview during the tournament, the 23-year-old spontaneously revealed that she’s an engaged woman.
Apia International Sydney: Meanwhile, is that an engagement ring on your finger?
Dominika Cibulkova: Yeah yeah, I’m engaged. We have [been engaged] together for a year, but I always just call him my boyfriend, not fiance. We are just waiting, as I would like to have a marriage in summer back home, but there is just no time while I’m playing tennis so we are in no rush to be married.
In case you didn’t know, Cibulkova has been dating Miso Navara. Her most notable past boyfriends were ATP players Gael Monfils and Jurgen Melzer, who got married to fellow tennis player Iveta Benesova in September 2012. (photo: © Neal Trousdale)
