Petra Kvitova Wins 2011 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Champion

After beating Maria Sharapova in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 on the famed grass Centre, Petra Kvitova, 21, became the youngest Wimbledon champion since Sharapova won this title in 2004 at the age of 17, and the first Czech woman to win Wimbledon since Jana Novotna in 1998. It is her first Grand Slam title and fourth tournament win of the year.

Kvitova, who ranked the eighth in the world, had the right to be proud of her victory because she surprisingly defeated three-time grandslam champion Sharapova, whose face has launched a thousand of ad campaigns.

“Of course I was nervous in the final game but I hoped that I can win and I had to focus on each point, which was important…I think that was the best match I ever played.” 2011 Wimbledon champion said.
