Wimbledon 2011: Petra Kvitova beats Maria Sharapova

The game riding sky-high in anticipation: the Wimbledon Women’s finals, came to a victorious close after Petra Kvitova defeated Maria Sharapova with a 6:3, 6:4 win.

The match started 2 pm local time in London, with a sunny day looking forward, and scaled perfect on the thrill factor, as to everyone’s expectation and ended with the highest points as there was a new winner to this distinguished title.

Although Sharapova remained the desired favorite in all leading newspapers, various sports analyses as well as expert interviews until before the game, the 24-year-old Russian took away the runners-up trophy. It was not that Kvitova, the 21-year-old Czech wasn’t a contender on the lookout. She was a promising player who was expected to win slams in the coming slams and she started out right with this one, holding the shining trophy above her head in glory.

Sharapova’s last grand slam title was back in 2008 when she won the Australian Open and was in much hope to bag this one lost to a deserving contender. As the last shot was played and the game ended, Petra Kvitova dropped down, kissed the court and stood up to wave at the crowd, flashing the winning smile. This is Kvitova’s first Grand Slam title.

When interviewed, Sharapova said “Of course I would have liked the big one but I’m happy to have made it till here”. She plans on coming back next year, to try and claim the victory.

Petra Kvitova, who remained relaxed throughout the tournament, was expected to show out all her excitement upon holding the winner’s trophy, remained composed even after she took rounds holding the plate. When asked if she was nervous while playing, her immediate response was “Of course I was nervous. But I had to focus on each point”. She did however reply quickly in being ready to take the Honor lap with a zestful “yes I am!” She didn’t forget to blow a flying kiss to her family and upon asking for a message for them said “I love You” in the most simple yet eloquent manner.

This after powerful rallies, double faults, missed serves, grunts in agitation and great game, the title was finally Kvitova’s.

The ladies in white let the cameras click them for a brief moment and then Sharapova handed over the court space to the champion of the match who smiled with contentment on her first ever Grand Slam title.

The camera moved smoothly down the winner’s title board with the William word dominating the ending as the “2011 Petra Kvitova” title was pasted.  Cheers to that!
