Dominika Cibulkova beat American Christina McHale 7—6 (3), 4—6, 6—4 to win the women’s final at the Mexican Open. In the men’s final, fourth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria defeated South African Kevin Anderson, seeded fifth, 7—6 (1), 3—6, 7—6 (5).

Cibulkova is the the top-seeded player from Slovakia, also the runner-up at the Australian Open in January, reports Xinhua.

This is her fourth career title and first since Stanford in 2013.

“It was a tough match, I’m really tired, I had to dig deep physically and mentally,” Cibulkova said after the win on Saturday.

“She was very aggressive and kept coming back, but it’s a final and thanks to my experience I was able to do it.”

The 21-year-old McHale, ranked 70th, reached her first tour title match.

Previously, her best results were two semifinals in Quebec, in 2010 and 2011.
