I was gonna say, Josh, I was there and it wasn't televised! It was like a Wednesday night if I recollect. :) I took my sister who had never been to a match before and it was over in a blink and I said, "Ok, this is a bad example of a good tennis match" and we stayed and watched some good doubles :)

LOL....I've got the doubles match too!

Seems like it was Neiland/Hingis vs. Halard/??

Anyways, I can't remember the guys name, but he was a big JC fan and had a load of tapes that I bought from him....he had a lot of vintage Venus and Serena (circa 98-99) matches. Brendan(?) was his name...and he wasn't the annoying Monica fan either.

BTW - hi Tra ;)

Hmm....Zvereva was in there somewhere, maybe playing with Hingis? Neiland was definitely in it with maybe Els Callens or Halard. I don't remember, lol....it was so memorable ;)

I thought in an interview sometime ago Serena said she never scored a 6-0 6-0 victory before. but i might be wrong.

She did, but she was wrong ;)

Venus has had 2 double bagels also and she remembers her first....in 1997 on grass at Eastbourne qualifying vs. a German girl...I forgot her name. Plus against Lucic last year at the US Open 1r.

I've never seen any record of a doubles bagel in 1997, you sure?? :confused:

Yes, I checked and it was against Wiltrud Probst in Eastbourne 1997 Qualifying 1st round :)

She lost to Tauziat in round 2 in 3 sets that year.
