Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina won the women’s title at Wimbledon by beating Tunisia's Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Rybakina is the first player representing Kazakhstan to win a Grand Slam singles title. She was born in Russia but switched nationalities in 2018.

The 17th-seeded Rybakina dropped only two sets in her seven victories at the All England Club.

Rybakina, who turned 23 last month, is the youngest woman to win the Wimbledon title since 21-year-old Petra Kvitova in 2011.

Jabeur was attempting to be the first Arab woman and woman from Africa to win a grand slam title.
