The unseeded 24-year-old from the Czech Republic succeeded where so many have failed this tournament — she broke Jabeur’s serve, again and again.
That’s what has made her Wimbledon champion, four years after she lost the French Open final as a 19-year-old.
Going into the match the Tunisian had won 90 per cent of her service games. In the final, she only won 40 per cent (four out of 10).
Vondroušová’s returning was just too much for Jabeur, who was aiming to become the first north African and first Arabic player to win a grand-slam title.
Now, she joins a decorated group of Czech-born players to win Wimbledon: Martina Navratilova, Jana Novotna and Petra Kvitova.
Vondrousova, ranked No 42, beat American Peyton Stearns (6-2, 7-5), Russian Veronika Kudermetova, the No 12 seed (6-3, 6-3), Croat Donna Vekic, the No 20 seed (6-1, 7-5), No 32 seed Marie Bouzkova (2-6, 6-4, 6-3), American Jessica Pegula, the No 4 seed (6-4, 2-6, 6-4) and Ukrainian wildcard Elina Svitolina (6-3, 6-3) earlier in the tournament.
Former champions Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Ann Jones, Marion Bartoli and Conchita Martinez were also in the Royal Box, along with Academy Award-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.
