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?

I was going to guess "no mercy rule" Davenport, and you beat me to it

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.

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

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

Yeah Graf had Navratilova both had 19 and Chris Evert had 45, if I'm correct. I can't be 100% confident as tennis data in the 1970's and earlier isn't always complete.

I've got down here that Justine Henin and Martina Hingis only served 3 Double Bagels each and that Venus only served two, which seems quite low. But then again Serena had only served 3 until a year ago.

Chrissie double-bageled Navratilova :worship:

Amazing:D,
Was it easier to double bagel back then than it is today? With players fitter, and presumably better today, I would speculate it was easier then. As recently as the '90s, top players like Graf and Seles barely broke a sweat getting into the second week of majors, and bagels and breadsticks were the order of the day in a lot of early round matches, with most truly competitive matches occurring in the SF/F.

I guess its therefore a bit unfair comparing absolute number of double bagel wins accumulated in the 70s and 80s:confused:, compared with those achieved in the more recent past, though its still very impressive for Chrissie to have won 6-0,6-0 thirty one (?!) times. Perhaps it might be better to compare number of double-bagel wins per generation:).

Shocking Serena's got such a low number, especially with her serve :eek:.

It's her return, when she's in the zone she'll do a full swing even on the first serve. Against Maria the game she conceded is a perfect example of why she doesn't have more double bagels. Few loose returns are bound to show up.

Modern players are more powerful but less accurate. Serena for example is dominating the field as much as anyone ever did but she's not scoring double bagels because her modern style of BBB game has a high risk error factor. She blasts a return all the time and it is naturally inevitable that SOME of those groundstokes will miss their mark no matter what a good day she's having - which means that a couple of those are highly likely to add up and become a few game-points to her opponents).

It actually surprises me when she does double bagel, cause she comes off matches when it is too easy, specially when she won the first set easily. She is opposite of Davenport, she shows Mercy.

I think that again points out that the WTA today is deeper than it was. Back then there were fewer players who could make it into the top 5 or 10 of the rankings.

For all this talk about Pierce and Martinez bagelling Hingis, it should be noted that Martina was 14 or 15 in those matches. Impressive, yes, but with an asterik.

Hingis, despite her lack of power, questionable fitness, and sometimes "I'm tanking this" attitude, had very few matches where she was blown out of the water. She had one loss to Serena 6-2 6-3 at the US Open semis, but Serena served 100% first serves in averaging above 110mph for a set and a half :eek: Then she had another loss to Serena right before her foot surgery. Otherwise, she was never really blown out in her first career, and I'm not sure if she had too many horrible losses by SCORELINE in her 2nd career either.

I would think she would have given her opponent's more doubles bagels though; only 3? One of them was against Seles!

the seles double bagel has an asterisk, as Monica was hobbled and barely moved in the match. Monica was pressured to play because the match was being televised. Seles was booed as she left the court and cried in the locker room. I have no respect for Hingis for the way she treated Monica that day.

You do have a point there, but I still think the ball bashers of today are still more likely to sneak a game or two due to the high risk game played by many today compared to the 70's and 80s' 'hit and giggle' tennis, thus Chrissie et al would likely register fewer double bagels today. Hard to compare generations, I guess.

Hi If you dont mind me asking, what did hingis do to monica that was that bad? Is it the fact that she didn't give monica a sympathy game or something? If so, what about clijsters vs safina at the aus open. Clijsters didn't give safina sympathy game a no one ever said she treated her badly...

Navratilova ended up with 25, Chris Evert a whopping 51 although some may have been below tour level but not many her wins included Nav's only 6-0 6-0 defeat of her career - incidently Chris was never beaten 6-0 6-0.

Clijsters indeed ended up with 6 as did Davenport, Hingis had 4, Mary Pierce had 8 including that 6-0 6-0 win over Hingis, Capriati had 5 including a 6-0 6-0 win over Pierce.

Sanchez-Vicario 11, Sabatini 18 including Arantxa's only 6-0 6-0 defeat, Seles 13 and more or less split fairly evenly between pre and post stabbing, Graf 22 same as her Grand Slams and never lost a match 0 and 0, could only find 2 from Margaret Court but no way can that be right.

It's a terrific search engine so hopefully it'll continue to grow and we can search further back in time. Players like Lenglen or Wills weren't there unfortunately.

Davenport used to talk about giving away pity games to avoid double bagelling her opponents, although these were probably against scrubs she was confident of cleaning up. No doubt she had the type of game to have more than 6.
