New tennis lingo?

Everyone knows by now Dinara got double bageled.
But apparently, Spanish term is "bicicleta"....because you know, it looks like bicycle wheels. lol.

So which do you like better?
Did Kim fed Dinara some bagels?
or did Kim ran over Dinara on her bicycles?

Maria Kirilenko Petra Kvitová Stefanie Vögele
Arvidsson A. Bondarenko Chakvetadze Cirstea Görges Hlaváčková
Kerber Krajicek Larričre Lisicki Pivovarova Rus Šafářová

That one could be confusing, since anything can happen off the court when it comes to women tennis players.

I like them both! What do they say in Spanish, Portuguese, French, etc when it's only one bagel? Unicycle?

Re: New tennis lingo?

In Danish a bagel is called an egg [ćg].
And a double bagel is called glasses [briller].

Title for a Danish article today: http://tv2sport.dk/node/71199
Kim Clijsters uddeler briller til Safina
Which means Kim Clijsters hands out glasses to Safina.
