Every year, at the end of the Acapulco tournament, I look forward to seeing the photos of the winner in a sombrero. This year, the honor goes to Dominika Cibulkova, who won her fourth yesterday in Acapulco. Cibulkova defeated Christina McHale 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 in the final. That second set was the only set Cibulkova dropped in the tournament. The final lasted just under three hours.
The Acapulco final was McHale's first. Cibulkova, the 2014 Australian Open runner-up, is now number 11 in the world.
Kristina Mladenovic and Galina Voskoboeva, seeded 2nd, won the doubles title. In the final, they defeated Petra Cetkovska and Iveta Melzer (she's back!) 6-3, 2-6, 10-5. Voskoboeva becomes the first player in the WTA to win more than one title while playing as a partner to Mladenovic. The very talented doubles player likes to spread the joy among many partners.
