Wimbledon Womens 2014: Petra Kvitova thrashes Eugenie Bouchard in final

In one of the most one-sided finals in Wimbledon’s history Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic put in a performance of power and accuracy to easily overcome Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard. Ms. Bouchard, at the age of just 20, had succeeded in earning her place in the history books in any event by becoming the first Canadian player, male or female, to reach a Grand Slam final.

Making it to the Centre Court at Wimbledon was indeed a remarkable performance for the Westmount, Quebec born player who has undoubtedly a remarkable future having won the junior Wimbledon championship just two years ago and made it to the final of probably still the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament in only her sixth major event form.

Euegenie’s progress at Wimbledon is a follow-on to her breakthrough season in 2013 during which she reached the semifinals at the Australian Open following that up by making it through to the French Open earlier this season.

However, on the day Ms. Kvitova was to prove just too strong for tying up a 6-3 6-0 victory in just 55 minutes, reclaiming the title she first won in 2011.

Another interesting piece of history that evolved from this year’s tournament was that Saturday’s final was the first or any Grand Slam final to be contested between two players who were both in the nineteen nineties, with Petra Kvitova becoming only the 24th female tennis player woman in the Open era, which began in 1968, to win multiple major titles.
