Dominika Cibulkova is the most successful and popular tennis player in the Slovak history. Therefore most of the people know her as a tennis player only – until now – as she has opened up to the public through an exposition at which she allows you to have a peek to her privacy, childhood and personal life. You can see Dominika’s dolls, results from the primary school as well as achievements from the Australia Open and other tournaments. The exhibition is on until 28th February in Eurovea and is free of charge.
MY FIRST, MY BEST, MY EVERYTHING
Dominika’s first-of-this-kind exhibition is called „My first, my best, my everything.“ Its name already tells you it is going to show some important milestones of her personal as well as professional life.
The exhibition starts with a „Childhood section“ where you can see some Barbie dolls she used to play with, photos from her early age as well as some baby clothes she used to wear.
As you will walk around the showcases, you will see drawings of Dominika that capture important moments from her tournaments.
The „School“ section displays writing pads and results from the primary school along with a few pictures from the times she was a school girl.
Dominika started to play tennis when she was 7. Her trainings paid off when she became one of the world’s top five among juniors. Her tennis beginnings are exposed through various diplomas she managed to gain as a young girl.
Those who are interested in seeing personal pictures can spend some time browsing through the many photographs capturing Dominika’s childhood, trainings and holiday trips.
The first rocket, first trophy, first earnings and first card, magazines Dominika appeared in and a lot more – all these items can be found in the „First major success“ part of the exhibition.
Wonder what she wore for the Fed Cup, Wimbledon or French Open? Have a look to the glass cabinets to see her uniforms as well as other dresses from her wardrobe.
Dominika represents Slovakia and makes it more visible worldwide. She was the first one in the Slovak history to make it to the finals of the Australian Open in Melbourne last year. In March 2014 she was ranked 10thin the world rankings in singles, made it to WTA tournaments in Acapulco, Moscow and Stanford and has many fans back home – she has won several “Tennis player of the year” and “Athlete of the year” awards.
If you are also one of her fans, you can leave her a message on this big poster at the end of the exhibition :)
