Tenth seed Sara Errani crashed out of Wimbledon on Saturday against wildcard Yaroslava Shvedova, who became the first player to win every point in a set at the tournament.

Shvedova won 6-0, 6-4 and utterly dominated the first set of the third-round match, preventing her Italian opponent from winning even one of the 24 points.

The match pitted together two sensations of the French Open in Errani, a surprise finalist, and Shvedova, who reached the fourth round as a qualifier, knocking out defending champion Li Na on the way.

Shvedova’s reward is a match against either four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams or 25th seed Jie Zheng.

Elsewhere, reigning champion Petra Kvitova booked a fourth-round match with 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone of Wimbledon by trouncing Varvara Lepchenko of the United States on Saturday.

Kvitova, the fourth seed, demolished the Uzbekistan-born Lepchenko 6-0, 6-1 in just 53 minutes.

Schiavone, the 2010 French Open champion, thrashed Czech player Klara Zakopalova in the first set and held her nerve in the second to seal a 6-0, 6-4.

Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic came back from a set down to knock out 22nd seed Julia Goerges of Germany 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Ivanovic, the 14th seed, will play world No. 2 Victoria Azarenka in the fourth round if the Belarusian can beat Slovakian qualifier Jana Cepelova.
