Cibulkova has been a giant killer. I keep picking against her. She is tenacious and has made a lot of believers. Still, Na Li has been a strong competitor at the Australian Open in previous years. She has a big game. I think if Na Li is playing well she wins this match and her second Grand Slam title. I think also tennis’ growth in Asia is something that is good for the sport so Na Li winning the “Grand Slam of Asia Pacific” is something I selfishly want to see.
Prediction: Li d. Cibulkova 7-5, 6-2
