Dominika Cibulkova outmuscles Vania King in the second round clash – French Open 2012

World number 16, Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia, continued with her dominating run at the French Open campaign and outperformed the unseeded Taiwanese-American, Vania King, in the second round on Wednesday. The 15th seed Slovak breezed her way past King in straight sets, settling the final score line at 6-0, 6-2, to book a berth in the third round of the clay-court Grand Slam event at Roland Garros.

The local crowd in Paris, France, witnessed the 23-year-old Slovakian thrashing King to all parts of the court throughout the matchup. Cibulkova spared merely two games for her opponent in the entire matchup before dumping her out of the star-studded event. She was facing the 57th ranked American for the fourth time in her professional career. King had earlier defeated the Slovak tennis ace on three successive occasions but it was the payback time for Cibulkova. She gave absolutely no chance to King to get settled in the contest and cruised through the two sets with commanding ease to curtail the head-to-head deficit at 1-3 against the American.

The 15th seed Slovak had an ordinary first serve precision of 55 per cent in the match but clinched 17 out of 22 points on it to get under the skin of the American opponent. She crafted a total of 10 break opportunities in the match and converted half of them en route to victory. On the other hand, King utterly failed to register a single break point in the entire matchup, frittering away two vital chances to finish on the losing side in the end.
