London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic claimed her second Wimbledon title in four years with a straight-set victory over rising Canadian star Eugenie Bouchard in Saturday's women's final at the All England Club.
The sixth-seeded Kvitova cruised past Bouchard, the No. 13 seed, by a 6-3, 6-0, margin in 55 minutes on Centre Court. It was the most lopsided women's final at Wimbledon since Steffi Graf also dropped only three games against Monica Seles in 1992.
The 6-foot Kvitova captured her only other Grand Slam championship by beating Maria Sharapova in the 2011 Wimbledon final.
