I always thought that a controlled baseline game, one based on consistency, often produces lopsided game scores. Someone who serves and volleys often needs to find their "range". IMO it's easier to make an error or two when playing forcing tennis.
My two cents: Players with great anticipation and concentration, no matter what their style, will be more likely to bake bagels. And a certain temperament is needed. Some players either really do want every game/point, although sometimes a kind of obliviousness can also lead to it.
