Cibulkova takes down McHale to win Acapulco title

Posted by Alejandra Romo on March 01, 2014

Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova returned to the winner's circle on Saturday by dispatching American Christina McHale to win the Mexican Open title.

The top-seeded Cibulkova had her share of trouble with McHale, who made her first-career WTA title appearance, defeating the 21-year-old 7-6 (7-3), 4-6, 6-4 at the Fairmont Acapulco Princess.

The Slovak led 5-2 in the final set before McHale won two games to put the pressure on the veteran. McHale wouldn't go down without a fight, however, knotting the final game at 40-40 a few times before Cibulkova finally got the job done to complete the match in just under three hours.

Cibulkova improved to 4-6 in career finals, with her last title coming in Stanford last year. She reached her first-ever Grand Slam final last month in Melbourne.

Cibulkova will earn $43,000 for the win, while McHale will take home $21,400 for her appearance in the final.
