LONDON (AP) - Petra Kvitova overwhelmed Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 in less than an hour Saturday to win Wimbledon for the second time.
The Czech left-hander completely outplayed the 20-year-old Canadian - playing in her first major final - with her big serve, aggressive returns and flat groundstrokes.
Kvitova, the 2011 champion, put on a clinic of power tennis, ripping baseline winners off both wings and leaving Bouchard looking helpless. Kvitova won the final seven games, finishing with another clean winner - a cross-court backhand.
Bouchard was the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final.
She was named after Britain's Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess was watching from the front row of the Royal Box.
