The Czech sixth seed beat the Canadian youngster 6-3 6-0 on Saturday to make it two triumphs in four years at SW19.

Kvitova started strongly, and she was able to open up a 3-1 lead early in the first set thanks to some powerful hitting from the baseline.

She then squandered three more break points on the Bouchard serve, though it mattered little as she soon moved 5-2 ahead.

Bouchard clawed one of the breaks back as the dogged Canadian threatened to mount a comeback, but Kvitova was able to break once again to close out the set 6-3.

Kvitova was ruthless in the second, swiftly moving 4-0 ahead against an overwhelmed Bouchard before romping to a 6-3 6-0 victory with just 57 minutes on the clock.
