Cibulkova was thoroughly outclassed today but I suppose one can forgive her in light of the long match she had against Wozniacki yesterday. This was her first Wimbledon quarterfinal finish. Apparently, she used to date Golden Squid Jurgen Melzer.

Catching Up with Old Friends

Juan Sebastian Cabal
(Curtain Call, Roland Garros Day 14) - Cabal teamed with countryman Robert Farah in the men's doubles draw. This was the first Wimbledon for both players. The team made it to the third round before losing to James Cerratani (USA)/Phillip Marx (Germany) in four sets. Cabal also teamed with Polona Hercoq (Slovenia) in mixed doubles, though the pair lost in the first round to Paul Hanley (Australia)/Su-Wei Hsieh (Chinese Taipei) in straight sets.
