Tennis is very much a solitary sport. You win by yourself and fail on your own too so any success that is achieved should be celebrated profusely by those involved.

And Wimbledon fans witnessed a very rare occurrence on Saturday when Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shveldova became the countries most famous export since Borat by winning a set without conceding a point.

The 24-year-old went one set up in her encounter with Sara Errani in this unique manner and her opponent was no slouch too. She is currently ranked number 10 in the world and was even the French Open runner-up just a few short weeks ago.

Shvedova went on to win the match 6-0, 6-4 before losing to Serena Williams in the 4th round on Monday.
