Bagel and double bagel alert in Asia

Not sure if it's just me but there seems to be a high rate of bagels in recent times.
Not only that, many double bagels as well!

Today Zhang Shuai and Kozlova double bagelled their opponents in Guangzhou.
Earlier Zhang also delivered a bagel and breadstick.

Single bagels delivered by Krunic, Cabrera, Peterson.
Muguruza also delivered a bagel in Tokyo.

All in one day!

And of course we have Wang feeding Mladenovic a double bagel, Kimiko receiving one from Krunic, Bencic delivering one in an ITF. Cornet double bagelled Putintseva in New Haven.

These are just a few of the many bagels to surface recently.

That's normal at this part of the year. GS is done for the year.


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: Bagel and double bagel alert in Asia

maybe it is Asian scrubs are leading to this hike of bagels?

Mladenovic is an asian scrub

Re: Bagel and double bagel alert in Asia

I think the Chinese/Uyghurs equivalent of a bagel is called a girdeh nan, 在 in Chinese, which comes from Persia?? Anyone able to correct me on that?

Re: Bagel and double bagel alert in Asia

There have already been more bagels (13) dished out in Guangzhou than in any other non-Slam tournament this year (more than at Wimbledon, actually), and the second round isn't even finished yet

Epic this GIF!

Well scrub is a scrub irrespective of its ethnicity or race!
Maybe there are so many asian scrubs for the simple fact that they are most populated continent maybe? But what makes me wonder how come they dont have as well so much talented and top player players as do they have them scrubs? Interesting point this. I mean you have so many 100 M+ countries out there who perform mostly only well at cricket and nothing else!
