    It’s been at least 44 years since any woman in professional tennis has done it, but during a third round match at Wimbledon, Yaroslava Shvedova recorded a “Golden Set.” What does that mean you ask? Shvedova won a full set, in perfect form. She won all 24 points and all 6 games in the first set against Sara Errani during a windy match in England. Shvedova herself didn’t realize the magnitude of her accomplishment until after the match. The crowd stirred into a frenzy on the final point of the set, leaving Shvedova a bit confused.
