Text size Aa Aa

Czech Republic’s Petra Kvitova clinched her maiden Grand Slam title with a convincing 6-3 6-4 win over Russia’s Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Despite being broken three times, the 21 year old, who looked anything but nervous in her first major final, kept her composure to become the first Czech to win here since Jana Novotna in 1998.
