LONDON - Eighth seed Petra Kvitova kept her nerve to outgun and outplay favorite Maria Sharapova and win the Wimbledon singles title for the first time with a convincing 6-3 6-4 victory on Saturday.

The 21-year-old Czech, who reached the semi-finals last year having never previously won a match on grass, served consistently and maintained a barrage of powerful, attacking groundstrokes to become only the third left hander to win the title after Anne Jones and Martina Navratilova.
