(LONDON) — Petra Kvitova overwhelmed Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0 in less than an hour Saturday to win Wimbledon for the second time.

The Czech left-hander completely outplayed the 20-year-old Canadian — playing in her first major final — with her big serve, aggressive returns and flat groundstrokes.

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 with another clean winner — a cross-court backhand.

Bouchard was the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final.

She was named after Britain’s Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess was watching from the front row of the Royal Box.
