The last time two Chinese players reached the quarterfinals of a WTA Premier level event was in Rome, back in 2014, when Zhang Shuai and Li Na progressed that far.
Radwanska is the defending champion - and the only previous Connecticut winner left in the draw after the departure of three-time titlist Petra Kvitova.
Cibulkova has never before made it beyond the quarterfinals here.
