Kvitova Wins Wimbledon Women’s Title

Petra Kvitova swept past Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard with a stunning performance of controlled power to win her second Wimbledon title on Saturday.
The Czech sixth seed reclaimed the title she first won in 2011 with a 6-3 and 6-0 victory in 55 minutes.
It is the 24-year-old’s second major title and will see her move up to fourth in the world rankings.
Bouchard, 20, had made history by becoming the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final.
She had won junior Wimbledon just two years ago and was one win from taking the senior title in only her sixth Grand Slam tournament, but came up against a player in remarkable form.
The only thing that might have troubled a rampant Kvitova was the weather, but early rain cleared and the roof was opened long enough for the final before being brought across for the trophy presentation.
