Bagels dispensed by top 10 players in 2002

Not sure what all this actually means, the order seems a bit random:

Martina Hingis 8
Venus Williams 6
Monica Seles 5
Justine Henin 4
Jennifer Capriati 2
Serena Williams 2
Amelie Mauresmo 2
Kim Clijsters 1
Jelena Dokic 0

Actually Hingis got bagelled twice this year already (by Bedanova at Scottsdale and by Serena at Miami) but she's not the only one in the top10.............Mauresmo got bagelled by Venus at Antwerp and Dokic got bagelled by Kremer at IW!!!!!!!!

But I think the most interesting is to emphasize the quality of the players bagelled!!!!!!! Because to bagel a top100 or a top10 is definitely not the same!!!!!!!!!

Hingis : 8 bagels (Stevenson, Poutchek, Lee, Black, Talaja, Farina Elia, Coetzer and Rittner)

Venus : 6 bagels (Coetzer, Myskina, Mauresmo, Kournikova, Maleeva and Hantuchova)

Seles: 5 bagels (Sugiyama, Sucha, Sharapova, Montolio and Pratt)

Henin: 5 Bagels (Serra-Zanetti, Dementieva, Hantuchova, Conchita and Pratt)

Capriati: 2 bagels (Panova and Daniilidou)

Serena: 2 bagels (Hingis and Srebotnik)

Mauresmo : 2 bagels (Weingartner and Lee)

Clijsters: 1 bagels (Husarova)

So far only Venus and Serena bagelled a top10 this year (besides Bedanova and Kremer....but they're not top10)!

That's pretty interesting. How is it Martina can crush everyone in early rounds, then get bageled herself later on?

Now who was double-bageled so far this year?

I like this stat of Serena and Venus Especially Serena's over Hingis.. cause Hingis is no slouch. In fact it seems that Serena is about the only top player or player who dishes out Bagels to Hingis. I didn't want Vee to bagel Momo cause Amelie is such a sweet person. I wonder if we can get stats on which top 10 player has had the most bagels against them the past 2 years?2001-2002.

I also like the fact that Venus and Serena have a total of 8 bagels and el-zero receiving this year. *knock on Wood*

Monica is in great shape too.. gave 5 bagels and received none. VERY IMPRESSIVE VEE, SERENA AND SELES.

it isn´t important to bagel a opponent, it isn´t a free-ride for the next round.

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Well it is a good thing in a final I think bagels imho can make a statement especially over top ten opponents. Serena for instance has bageld 2 people in the same tournament over good quality players.. imho that is stating something.

Venus and Serena have the ability to dominate their opponents, but generally not for an entire match. This is evidenced by their lack of double bagels.

Serena has one. In 1998 at LA, she beat Larissa Neiland 6/0, 6/0.

Venus has never had a double bagel. She's had a few 6/0, 6/1 (Miami last year, lead Pitkowski 6/0, 5/0 and Pitkowski won a game).

Also in Chicago 1997, the pair gave a double bagel to Iva Majoli and her partner in doubles - 6/0, 6/0.

Usually, Venus and Serena have at least one or two games where they hit 3 or 4 unforced errors in a row. They can't hit winners all the time

In the meantime, Hingis is a very very consistent player who dominates those outside of the top 20. And I do mean dominate. She, in my opinion, has the best chance to give double bagels to players.

How about bagels during the final? That has got to be very rare, especially double bagels. I just read that Graf beat Zvereva 6-0 6-0 in the 1988 French Open final! That is something.

Martina has also served up a lot of breadsticks this year. Btw, a breadstick is a 6-1 set if any of you did not already know that.
