"I hope it's now going to be easier for me," Kvitova said.

Once she broke for 2-1 in the first set, the 24-year-old was never threatened.

Bouchard saved three break points to hold for 2-3 -- but it was her last hold. The second set took 23 minutes, with Bouchard claiming 10 points total.

At least Bouchard -- who will become the highest-ranked Canadian woman in tennis history at No. 7 when the new list is released on Monday -- can say the fans were heavily behind her.

"Even on court today I felt some special support from the crowd," she said. "It's humbling to receive all this support. It's special to hear that people want me to do well and believe in me."

In Sunday's men's final, Roger Federer tries for an eighth Wimbledon title against top seed Novak Djokovic.

But the duo will have a difficult job of matching Kvitova's impeccable outing.
