Petra Kvitova claimed her second Wimbledon title in four years when she demolished rising Canadian star Genie Bouchard 6-3, 6-0, in Saturday's women's final at the All England Club.

The sixth-seed Kvitova, needed just 55 minutes to end the run of the 13-seed Bouchard in the most one sided ladies final since 1992, when Steffi Graf dropped only three games on her way to victory over Monica Seles.

Kivtova's only other Grand Slam title came in 2011, when she defeated Maria Sharapova in the final of Wimbledon.

Bouchard has enjoyed a golden run in the Grand Slams this year after reaching the semi-finals in both Australia and France, and at just 20-years old, few will argue the fact that the Canadian poster girl is the next star of the ladies game.

The power of the Czech proved too much for Bouchard as she simply blew her off the court with 28-out-write winners and also won 82% of her first serve points, in a dominant display.

"This means everything to me," said Kvitova. "I mean, its Wimbledon. Tennis here is tennis history. I just had the tears in my eyes. I was so, so happy."

Kvitova improved her record to 12-4 in career finals and will take over the number four ranking on the WTA while Boucard continues her remarkable rise up the rankings moving into seventh.
