Wozniacki stunned by Cibulkova at Wimbledon

LONDON, (Reuters) – Top seed Caroline Wozniacki was  upset 1-6 7-6 7-5 by Dominika Cibulkova in the fourth round at  Wimbledon today, following defending champion Serena  Williams out of the tournament.
Dane Wozniacki, bidding for her first grand slam title,  looked to be cruising through to last eight for the first time  as she comfortably took the first set against the diminutive  24th seed from Slovakia.
But Cibulkova raised her game to take the second-set  tiebreak and she stayed with the world number one through a   final set riddled with breaks of serve before clinching a shock  win on her third match point with a crunching forehand.
Cibulkova will play fifth seed and former champion Maria  Sharapova in the last eight.
