Czech professional tennis player, Marketa Vondrousova became the first unseeded woman on Saturday to win Wimbledon in the Open era as she swept to a shock 6-4, 6-4 victory over Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur in the final.
As the first unseeded woman in the Wimbledon final in 60 years, Vondrousova was a heavy underdog against sixth-ranked Jabeur.
But the 24-year-old upset the odds on Centre Court to win her maiden Grand Slam title at the second attempt after losing to Ash Barty in the 2019 French Open final.
She is just the ninth unseeded champion at a Grand Slam tournament.
Vondrousova’s triumph completed a remarkable comeback after a rash of injuries stalled her promising career.
