Petra Kvitova - Wimbledon Women's Champion 2011

Petra Kvitova is the new name in the Grand slam winners circuit now...  The Czech star Petra Kvitova won her first Grand Slam title on Saturday the 2nd of July 2011 by beating Maria Sharapova 6-3, 6-4 in the Wimbledon final.

The 21-year-old Kvitova is the first left-handed woman to win the Wimbledon title since Martina Navratilova in 1990.  Kvitova was playing in her first major final, but it was three-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova that showed her nerves. The 2004 Wimbledon champion double-faulted six times, including twice to get broken to 4-2 in the first set.

Using a fast-paced and well-placed forehand, Kvitova won easily as Czech greats Martina Navratilova and Jana Novotna sat in the Royal Box with a host of other former Wimbledon champions.
