Petra Kvitová won her second women’s singles title with a 6:3, 6:0 demolition of Canadian Eugenie Bouchard on Saturday in less than an hour. The win is the 24-yer-old Czech’s second Grand Slam success after triumphing at Wimbledon in 2011. Following that win her form has been intermittent. Kvitová went into the final as the favourite against the young Canadian who was in her first Grand Slam final. Kvitová, who was seeded sixth for the championships, dominated the match, in particular thanks to powerful forehand crosscourt winners.
