So who has won the most 6-0 6-0 matches?

Having heard Serena posted only her 5th double bagel (is that true????) of her career the other night I was wondering if anyone knows who the all time leader is in this category. I can only assume it's Chris or Martina but also in terms of a percentage of matches played who would come out on top? Would it be Graf or maybe even someone like Lenglen? Anyone know the answers?

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Davenport only had 6 surprisingly. But 5 of them came between 2004-2006 so it seems like a lot more.

Graf had 16 if I'm correct.

Edit: Graf had 21. 19 if we exclude qualifying.

Incidentally, the highest profile for Davenport was against Maria.
However, paradoxically, that was her only win against Maria, she 1-5 against Maria.

I'm guessing Margaret Court may hold this record but not sure?

Another interesting qn: Has any player never received a bagel? Or breadsticks?

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Lenglen would probably own this statistic.

Then I'd guess Graf or Evert.

She hands bagels every tourney she plays

At Paralympics, she won her 1st 2 matches with double bagels and her 3rd match was one bagel, one breadstick. So she has only lost 1 game so far
