Tennis - Australian Open finalist Dominika Cibulkova says she is jet lagged after her long flight to Kuala Lampur where she is the top seed for this week's BMW Malaysian Open. Ranked no. 10 in the world, Cibulkova commented, "I’m still suffering from jet-lag.
But that’s how it is and we just have to get used to it. But I am looking forward to this tournament, this being my first time appearance in Malaysia. After a great start to the year, I’m hoping to build on what I have already achieved.
The Australian Open was a great confidence boost for me. I also did quite well in Miami and Indian Wells, so I’m feeling ready." Cibulkova will play her first round match on Wednesday. On Monday, several first round matches were cancelled due to rain.
The only match that did get completed saw 19-year-old Danka Kovinic of Montenegro scored a 6-4, 6-2 win over Belgian An-Sophie Mestach.
