Cibulkova claimed the Carlsbad title with an emphatic 6-1, 7-5 win over top seed Marion Bartoli, pushing her up to No. 13 in the rankings, just one place off her career high. Cibulkova has never been ranked inside the world's top ten so far in her career but Bartoli, a former Wimbledon finalist, sees no reason why the Slovak can't achieve that milestone.  

"The main thing to be inside the Top 10 I know from my experience is consistency," Bartoli said. "You have to play a lot of good weeks. You can have some weeks when you don't play so well, but you have to have a lot of great weeks. Obviously she has the game for it. Maybe the thing with Domi is she's not that tall, so it takes her a lot of energy to play really well, and maybe she's having some trouble backing up this kind of energy, but I think when she's on, like during this tournament, yes, she is definitely able to be there."

Cibulkova split with her long-time coach Zeljko Krajan in April and she told the press in Carlsbad that she now feels calmer on court as a result.

"Zeljko was a great coach, but in the end it was not helping me," she said. "He was just putting too much pressure and with every ball I missed and every match I lost I was just putting myself really down because he was very, very tough. He's very intense all the time. I think me being with him two years is something now I don't know how I could handle it, but it made me maybe tougher in some way. In the end it was not helpful, so after we split I just felt so much freer on the court, if I do mistake, it doesn't matter. But still sometimes after two years with him, I do mistake and go crazy about that and that is what the new coach is trying to tell me. It's nothing. It's one ball and it's not the end of the world."
