On March 9th, world No.30 Dominika Cibulkova had to rush to the operating room, even though her initial plans had been to postpone the Achilles surgery after the 2015 US Open. Good news is that, after the successful two-hour surgery, in which doctors removed a centimeter growth on the bone of her left heel, the Slovak’s recovery process has been progressing well. Last Friday Cibulkova took off the brace from her leg and now she’s exercising more freely, with the moral support of her two cute dogs, Mia and Woody! The Yorkies have traveled the world with Domi, accompanying her wherever she goes.
Of course, the brace was not stopping Domi from attending red carpet events. The 25-year-old attended this month’s OTO Awards (television screen personality awards) in Bratislava. The crutches are hidden behind her in this pic.
Cibulkova doesn’t want to force her comeback, but hopes to recover in no more than two and a half months. She has signed up for the grass-court Topshelf Open in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, which takes place in the first half of June. (source: Cibulkova’s official website, photos via Cibulkova’s Twitter)
