Kvitova defeated No. 5 Maria Sharapova in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to capture her first-ever Wimbledon title. This is also the first Grand Slam title of any kind for the 21-year old rising star from the Czech Republic.
Kvitova finished the match with an ace and immediately dropped to her knees in disbelief as she is now a Grand Slam champion for the first time.
As for Sharapova--
Nonetheless, reaching the final was a huge step forward, so CONGRATULATIONS to her also.
So now we're off to the blockbuster event-- No. 1 vs. No. 1 on the men's side. It should be a dandy.
