Does anyone remember the 4th Round of the 1998 Australian Open, where there were a bunch of double bagels? Hingis, Davenport, Pierce?
1998 Australian Open R16
Hingis d. Yayuk Basuki 6-0 6-0
Pierce d. Henrietta Nagyova 6-0 6-0
Davenport d. Ruxandra Dragomir 6-0 6-0

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
