Player Completes Perfect Set at Wimbledon: Yaroslava Shvedova played a flawless set of tennis, the best by a woman in at least 44 years, in the third round at Wimbledon. She won every point (24) and every game (6) in the first set against Sara Errani, winning 6-0, 6-4. The last pro to do it was Bill Scanlon in a first-round match in 1983. "To me, that's almost as incredible as Isner-Mahut," said Sam Querrey, one of the men's competitors.

Seattle Wins Super Bowl 0x30

so we've had a safety, a field goal, a rushing td (offense), a pick-6 (defense), and a punt return (special teams) - is this some sort of hat trick? maybe a straight? are we missing any other form of scoring at this point, other than a 2-point conversion?

Broncos Hold Off Chargers

looks pretty foolish that they didn't kick another onside kick - then again they also should probably have covered Thomas on 3rd and 17
