She was the GOAT in that set lol
She actually came close to doing it before in 2006
won 23 straight before DFing. I bet i won't see it again in my life time though.

Got to both Finals at least.
I agree thats how she shouldn't be remembered. She should be remembered for reaching a GS final, and any other achievements she may have before she retires. But if she doesn't really do anything for the rest of ehr career, some people may remember her for losing the Golden set. You could ask someone "Do you remember Sara Errani" and i bet that some people will say something like "Ain't she the one who didn't win a point in a set". What it should be is, "Yeah, she was a finalist at Roland Garros in 2012" etc... Not all will remeber her for losing to the Golden set, but some. People should really give Shvedova credit for the Golden set, rather than hitting on Errani for it (and before any of you say anything, i've seen people use the Golden set to discredit Errani)
But in reverse to what you said, Slava will more likely be remembered for her Golden set, than her doubles titles.
As for Murray, I don't think people should judge him on one match. However, i did say that he'll lose earlier than expected before the tournament, and i'm sticking to that.
