Everyone knows by now Dinara got double bageled.
But apparently, Spanish term is "bicicleta"....because you know, it looks like bicycle wheels. lol.

So which do you like better?
Did Kim fed Dinara some bagels?
or did Kim ran over Dinara on her bicycles?

That one could be confusing, since anything can happen off the court when it comes to women tennis players.

I like them both! What do they say in Spanish, Portuguese, French, etc when it's only one bagel? Unicycle?

I heard they say you go home sur la roue arrière (on your rear wheel) if you just get one bagel.

In Danish a bagel is called an egg [æg].
And a double bagel is called glasses .

Title for a Danish article today: http://tv2sport.dk/node/71199
Kim Clijsters uddeler briller til Safina
Which means [B]Kim Clijsters hands out glasses to Safina.
