Petra Kvitova Wins Second Wimbledon Title

London -- Petra Kvitova cruised to her second Wimbledon title with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Eugenie Bouchard in 55 minutes.

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 the 55-minute rout with another clean winner -- a cross-court backhand.

It was the first final between two players born in the 90s. Kvitova is 24, four years older than Bouchard.

Kvitova is the third different player to win a Slam this year, the fourth straight year that the opening three majors have gone to different champions.
