Most 6-0 sets won in history?

Okay, this question came across my mind today and I was wondering if anyone knows the answer to this. What female player has won the most sets at love in history?

I'm sure Seles won a lot of 6-0 6-0 matches, didn't she?

My hunch is Evert.

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

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

In the Open era, almost certainly it would be Chris Evert. I'd actually be shocked if it was anyone else. Steffi Graf probably number 2.

Probably Suzanne Lenglen or Helen Wills.

For the open era that would be my guess as well.

Re: Most 6-0 sets won in history?

It's really fascinating, if unsurprising, to see Chris, Nav, Graf, and Seles at the top here. For starters, Chris and Nav had an era of complete dominance. All of these players achieve their bagel sets so differently. Chris and Seles are similar in that they are ruthless competitors who won't surrender an inch. Navratilova and Graf have such ballistic offensive games that when they were on, were untouchable.

There's a stunning clip of Evert double bagelling Martina. Martina was laughing between points because she tried EVERYTHING. Chris could have hit times on the court that day.

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbińe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
