Petra Kvitova, 2014 Wimbledon champion

Wimbledon 2014: Petra Kvitova defeats Eugenie Bouchard

Petra Kvitova was simply too good on Saturday: she crushed Eugenie Bouchard 6-3 6-0 in just 55 minutes, to capture her second Wimbledon title.
It is the quickest ladies final at Wimbledon for 31 years, since Martina Navratilova routed Andrea Jaeger 6-0 6-3 in the 1983 final. Navratilova was among the nine former Wimbledon ladies champions in the Royal Box, was in tears of joy after Kvitova’s triumph.

It is a bittersweet end of a fantastic tournament for Eugenie Bouchard, who has reached (at least) the semifinals of the first three Grand Slams of the season. No doubt she will be a title contender at Wimbledon in the years to come.
