Petra Kvitová thanked her back up team and family which turned up to witness her triumph. She said her team had worked out a strategy for the final and it paid off. She admitted in the post match interview that she had struggled after her first Wimbledon win in 2011 but hoped that after the second it would be easier. The final was watched by Czech-born nine times Wimbledon singles winner Martina Navrátilová and 1998 Czech singles winner Jana Novotná. Kvitová should move up to fourth ranked women’s player in the world following the Wimbledon win.
