Petra Kvitova swept past Canada's Eugenie Bouchard with a stunning performance of controlled power to win her second Wimbledon title.

The Czech sixth seed reclaimed the title she first won in 2011 with a 6-3 6-0 victory in 55 minutes.

It is the 24-year-old's second major title and will see her move up to fourth in the world rankings.

Bouchard, 20, had made history by becoming the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final.

Eugenie Bouchard arrived at Centre Court with cool confidence and a ruthless tennis game to match.
Bouchard, a 20-year-old Canadian, had captured the affection of her country and of the British tabloids, her looks, play and marketability drawing gawking comparisons to Maria Sharapova.
Bouchard now has something else in common with Sharapova. She, too, has been dominated by Petra Kvitova in a Wimbledon final.
Federer took his record against Raonic to 5-0 and denied the Canadian a first major final
Seven-time champion Roger Federer dismantled the big-serving game of Canadian Milos Raonic to reach his ninth Wimbledon final.

The Swiss, 32, broke Raonic in the first game and went on to win 6-4 6-4 6-4 in one hour and 42 minutes.

He will take on top seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final, after the Serb beat Grigor Dimitrov in four sets.

Federer is trying to win his 18th Grand Slam title, and his first since beating Andy Murray at Wimbledon in 2012.

Fifteen years after making his first appearance at the All England Club, Federer has the chance to extend the record he has already set for major victories and break new ground for Wimbledon titles in the men's game.
