Errani is a great player, she is very good on clay and is good on hard courts. She isn't very good on grass cause that is her worst surface by far. She reached the quarters final in the Australian Open this year. I think she will win the Roland Garros next year.

I'm not a fan of hers, but i think she's a solid top 10 player. Like you said, grass is her worst surface, but until the Golden set she played well at Wimbledon. But the problem for Errani is unless she does win a slam or something, she'll only be remembered for being the victim of the golden set, which i think is unfair on her. She didn't play badly at all in that set, it was just that Shvedova was in her GOAT mode.

But yeah, she may win RG next year. She's definately got a good shot. But i think her USO run comes to an end in the next round because she's playing Kerber, but she has still had a very good run imo.

I know you are Shvedova fan, but no one loses a set without winning a point by not playing bad. Shvedova was in her GOAT mode but Errani played bad in that set, not very bad but bad.

Errani made only one unforced error in that entire set. I know i tend to be a bit bias when concerning my favourite players, but there was really only one point where Errani really had a chance and that was the point she made the error in. I'm not saying Errani played well, but Shvedova was blowing her off court. Errani couldn't do much in that set. Shvedova is a bad matchup for Errani anyway

Yea that golden set was just one of those things that happen once in a blue moon, not necessarily a fluke, but it's not like she's been close to doing that again ever since.

She was the GOAT in that set lol

People will remember Errani for being a French Open finalist long before they remember her being the victim of a Golden Set. That's not even debatable. Golden Set was a terrific achievement but a players achievements aren't ranked on Golden Sets, they're based on performances in Slams. Didn't she win the Doubles at the French this year as well? Got to both Finals at least.

Agree with the Murray won't win because he was tested yesterday argument being very short sighted. I'd actually rather Murray face tough matches in Rounds 3 and 4 and come through them in 4 hard sets than have Federer's easy route to the Semis. Lot of the top players always say how they like a challenge in the first week to really get into their big match groove. That win will give him a lot more confidence than an easy 3 set win. Showed he can beat someone playing great Tennis and he can even win not playing to his best and low on energy. Being draw in Federer's half is a bummer because it means his biggest test will come in the Semi but I still believe he's capable of beating Federer. He's capable of beating anyone on his day.

Some of the umpire calls on Challenges have been shocking this week too.

Ivanovic/Stephens was really good last night. 2 players who are as awful as they are great. Ivanovic has a great chance to make the Quarters without really being tested. Vinci should beat Radwanska. Wouldn't consider it an upset if she did win. Robson's on 3rd today which means she won't clash with Utd Probably clash with Barca/Valencia but I can watch that later.

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.

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.

Agree that Shvedova will be remembered for the Golden Set over any doubles achievements. Most people don't really care or even know about doubles achievements unless it's a big singles player like Serena dominating that game too. I think you kinda over-estimate how much casual fans perceive that Golden Set too. Didn't happen in one of the bigger rounds or to a big player so most fans probably aren't even aware of it. Far more will be aware of who was in the French Open Final than that Golden Set.

Yeah, i suppose your right about the casuals thing. The achievement would get a lot more coverage if a big name like Serena Williams, or Roger Federer had done it, but because Shvedova is unknown to people who don't really follow the sport, it didn't get a lot of coverage.

Edit* First set to David Ferrer 11-9 on tiebreak. Both had earlier chances to win the tiebreak

Djokovic easily through in straight sets
