Cibulkova plays herself in Li Na movie

Fresh from a vacation in the Maldives, Dominika Cibulkova headed to Wuhan, China to make her acting debut.

The Slovak is playing herself as the Wuhan center court morphs into Rod Laver Arena for the long-awaited Li Na biopic.

Li defeated Cibulkova in the 2014 Australian Open final.

The detail is pretty good – at least with the outfits (see a comparison to the real thing here). And the knee tape.

The rackets are on brand, if not model.

Li doesn’t play herself. But what a great idea to use the real players as action stunt doubles
