Cibulkova ties the knot after Wimbledon worry


After concerns about Dominika Cibulkova's wedding due to her progression into the Wimbledon quarter-finals, the Slovak walked down the aisle as planned.

The world number 12 had her ceremony planned for the Saturday of the final prior to the grand slam at the All England Club, but as she worked her way through the early rounds there were fears it may need to be postponed.

Having beaten Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, Daria Gavrilova and Eugenie Bouchard, the possibility of a place in the final began to come into sight.

When she battled past third seed Agnieszka Radwanska in a three-set thriller in the last-16, talk in her media conferences immediately turned to her upcoming nuptials.

Cibulkova suggested she would move the date if required, but her hopes were dashed as Elena Vesnina recorded a 6-2 6-2 win in the quarters.

That allowed Cibulkova to attend her own wedding, and the WTA congratulated the 27-year-old following the ceremony.
