All eyes were on the ingenue but in the end, the veteran prevailed.

With a masterful performance, sixth-seeded Petra Kvitova dominated No. 13 Eugenie Bouchard to win her second Wimbledon title on Saturday by a score of 6-3, 6-0.

The 24-year-old played a near-perfect game, backing up her powerful serves and returns with impressive agility as she moved around the court, limiting Bouchard's opportunities to take control.

The fast-paced match featured mostly short rallies, with Kvitova finding ways to win points on both sides of the service game.

For 20-year-old Bouchard, her first appearance in a Grand Slam final is another step forward in her impressive rise this season. She didn't play badly on Saturday; she just couldn't find a way to get the best of Kvitova.

For her part, the 24-year-old Czech backs up her 2011 Wimbledon title with what could be the most impressive match of her career, signalling that she's a force to be reckoned with one again in women's tennis. A well-deserved victory for Petra Kvitova.
