Kvitova stunned favored Maria Sharopova, winning for the very first time. 

The eighth-seeded Kvitova beat the fifth-seeded Sharapova 6-3, 6-4 Saturday.

"It's hard to find some words if I'm standing here with the trophy and see the great players in the Royal Box,'' Kvitova said. "Well, I'm so happy that I won.''

Sharapova had this to say following the loss:  “I've had amazing support over so many years and to be back at this stage and holding the runner-up trophy this year is something. ... Obviously I would have wanted that big one. It's something I'm going to be back for and I'm hoping to get again.”

Entering the final, Kvitova was listed with just 5 to 6 odds of beating Sharapova, quite the drop off from the 8 to 1 odds available just two weeks ago.
