Petra Kvitova wins 1st set 6-3 in Wimbledon women's final against Eugenie Bouchard

Petra Kvitova won the first set 6-3 in the Wimbledon women's final against Eugenie Bouchard of Canada.

Kvitova, the 2011 champion, dominated play with her big serve, aggressive returns and flat groundstrokes. The Czech player broke serve three times, including in the final game of the set, which lasted 32 minutes.

It's the first Grand Slam final between two players born in the 1990s. Kvitova is 24, Bouchard 20.

Bouchard is the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final.

She was named after Britain's Princess Eugenie, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. The princess was watching from the front row of the Royal Box.
