Surprising players who have been double bagelled in their careers

I guess Nancy shouldn't feel too bad and not give up hope. Also after good progress in the summer I hope Mirjana isn't too put off by her 0+0 against Venus at the US Open. They join some very good company.

Martina Navratilova lost 6-0 6-0 to Chris Evert
Martina Hingis lost 6-0 6-0 to Mary Pierce
Mary Pierce lost 6-0 6-0 to Jennifer Capriati
Monica Seles lost 6-0 6-0 to Martina Hingis
Arantxa Sanchez lost 6-0 6-0 to Gabriela Sabatini
Iva Majoli lost 6-0 6-0 to Chanda Rubin
Manuela Maleeva lost 6-0 6-0 to Martina Navratilova
Magdalena Maleeva lost 6-0 6-0 to Conchita Martinez
Jo Durie lost 6-0 6-0 to Chris Evert

So all those players who have lost 6-0 6-0, the message is that it can happen to the players who turn out to be elite too.

raquel I think in 1987 when asv was 15 and sabatini 16(I think)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

LOL. "Injured" Seles loses to 6-0 6-0 to Hingis. I watched that match. I know Monica had some sort of foot problem or something. And she did play terribly. But that was a semifinal, and if she was so "injured" she wouldn't have gone out on the court and she wouldn't have gotten that far in the tournament. It's not like she played her on crutches.

'Sides, if you're going to start adding footnotes, why don't you footnote the Hingis-Pierce match, noting that Martina was like, 8 years old.

Edited especially for tennisfan333. So now we have no reason for any uptight, overly sensitive posters to become embroiled in arguments in this post. They are merely stats to show that most players at some point have had the worst kind of loss.

mmcdonald: Venus and Serena may have lost 1+1. However, the double bagel reference in the title should have indicated to you that 1+1 doesn't qualify for this thread

I don't think Chris ever lost 0+0.

Sabine Hack lost to Conchita a couple of times 6-0 6-0 while she was in the top 20 so she just about qualifies.

Don't think Gersi or Wartusch really are classed as particularly surprising players. Mind you I like Patricia but I think she must have had the worst start to a maindraw Grand Slam career ever. She lost 6-0 6-0 to Kournikova on Centre Court as you mention in her first MD match. Then she went to the French Open for her second main draw appearence and lost 6-0 6-0 to Montolio in the first round. She must have been very nervous going to Wimbledon but thankfully she beat both Srebotnik and Stevenson before losing to Osterloh.
