"It was a complete one-way-show for Kvitova in the second set as she converted three of the four breakpoints she earned to route the set and match in her favour."
London, July 5 - Czech sixth seed Petra Kvitova lifted her second women's singles Wimbledon title after defeating Canadian 13th seed Eugenie Bouchard in straight sets in the final here Saturday.

Kvitova, who also won here in 2011, completely destroyed her opponent to come out victorious 6-3, 6-0 in only 55 minutes. This was the first even Grand Slam final for Bouchard.

The Canadian broke Kvitova once in the first set but the 24-year-old Czech reacted by breaking Bouchard thrice to easily bag the set in 32 minutes.

It was a complete one-way-show for Kvitova in the second set as she converted three of the four breakpoints she earned to route the set and match in her favour.

The former champion's net game totally worked for her as she pocketed 11 net points to two of Bouchard. Kvitova also had 28 winners in the match, remarkably 20 more than her opponent.
