(CNN) — Markéta Vondroušová had beaten all odds in the past fortnight at Wimbledon and the Czech did it again in the women’s final on Saturday, beating favorite Ons Jabeur to become the first unseeded woman in the Open Era to win the famous tournament. .
The world No. 42, playing in her first Grand Slam final, beat the No. 6 seed 6-4, 6-4 on center court to make history.
Since Serena Williams in 2018, when the American was ranked 181st in the world, a player so low in the world rankings had not reached the Wimbledon final.
No one expected Vondroušová to take part in the league match, not even the player herself whose husband had stayed in the Czech Republic until the final to take care of their cat, Frankie.
But Jabeur became the fifth seed to lose to the 24-year-old at this tournament as her unpredictability proved difficult for her opponents.
