Yaroslava Shvedova and the golden set (VIDEO)

Busted Racquet

This happened over the weekend, but since it hadn't happened before in the Open Era, we figured it was still worth a post on Monday.

Yaroslava Shvedova achieved one of the rarest feats in tennis on Saturday when she won a golden set against French Open finalist Sara Errani. Twenty four points played, twenty four points won for Shvedova.

She became the first woman to achieve the feat in the professional era of tennis. To do it in a Grand Slam -- in the third round against a major finalist, no less -- is a remarkable achievement that will live longer than any first-week victory ever could.

Shvedova was basically a failure in the second set against Errani losing 27 points in a 6-4 victory. She was defeated on Monday by Serena Williams.
