Paris: Czech tennis star Dominika Cibulkova has said Australia`s Samantha Stosur plays like a man, after seeing her challenge in the French Open end with a 6-4 6-1 defeat at the hands of Stosur.

"She played unbelievable today," a daily quoted Cibulkova as saying.

"Her topspin and her serve, I mean, she played like a man, and it`s really hard to play against a man. It was driving me crazy on the court today. So it was really, really hard, really tough," she added.

At just 161cm, the minuscule Cibulkova struggled against Stosur`s high-bouncing game.
