From No. 42… Vodrusova was crowned queen at Wimbledon!

by

She completed the… miracle and became the new queen of Wimbledon Marketa Vodrusova. The 24-year-old Czech prevailed 2-0 set (6-4, 6-4) of Ons Zambert and won her first Grand Slam title

In fact, she became the first player to do so without being in the top 16 of the ranking. She started this year’s event from No. 42 and celebrated her rise to the top 10 of the WTA for the first time, after her terrible run.

Adding even more value to her achievement is the fact that she had never previously advanced past the second round of a Grand Slam event and this is only the second title of her career.

Yamber was the one who entered the match strongly and broke with… good evening, for 2-0. Vodrusova responded immediately and leveled at 2-2. The continuation was similar. Yamber reached a break again (2-4), with the Czech equalizing at 4-4 and taking the next two games for the 1-0 set 6-4.

There was chaos with a break afterwards. Vodrusova took the lead by breaking her opponent’s serve, with Yamber immediately leveling and taking three straight games for 3-1. The Czech responded strongly, tying the score at 3-3, while going on a three-game run of her own for a 2-0 set at 6-4.
