Petra Kvitova defeated Maria Sharapova to win the Wimbledon title this year. It was brief, and I’m extremely disappointed that Sharapova was handled that way. I thought if Petra will win, then it should be a tight 3-setter. But it was not to be; a new champion has to be crowned. So congrats to Petra. It was not a bad tournament for Maria Sharapova though. Her finals appearance further validates the fact that she’s back in the mix and ready to fight in top events. She won Rome, a claycourt event, got into the semi-finals of French Open and now the finals of Wimbledon. Both players will get a boost in their rankings.
