Czech Marketa Vondrousova became a first-time Grand Slam champion after beating sixth seed Ons Jabeur in the women’s final at Wimbledon.

She is the first unseeded finalist at Wimbledon since Billie Jean King made it this far in 1963.

The 24-year-old won the tournament in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 against Jabour, the only Arab or North African woman to participate in a Grand Slam singles final.

Kate, Princess of Wales watched the final from the royal box, along with several former champions and some stars from the entertainment world.

Also in the royal box were former champions Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Ann Jones, Marion Bartoli and Conchita Martinez, along with Oscar-winning actor Maggie Smith, Priyanka Chopra and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

All eyes will now be on Sunday’s men’s final between current title holder Novak Djokovic and Spanish world number one Carlos Alcaraz.
