I was looking at Monica's old results on the ITF site, and here is an unusual one I forgot from the 91 US Open:

64 W Emanuela ZARDO (SUI) 6-0 4-6 6-0


I remember there was a 6-0 0-6 6-0 in a challenger or something relatively recently, but has a player on Monica's level ever done something like this? Gotta be unique.

Fairly unique, but something similar has been done before and both players involved are/were at Monica's level:

Chase Championships Final of '96
Steffi Graf d. Martina Hingis, 6-3 4-6 6-0 4-6 6-0

Once Anke Huber won a match at the AO 4-6, 6-0, 6-0 (against Kruger, I think). That's the only I remember.

Anna has a lot of losses 6-1, 1-6, 6-1 or 6-0, 1-6, 6-1, but no double bagel IMO.

Wow, I would never have thought so many top players would have done this. The thinking is if you can dominate someone enough to drop 2 bagels on them, how do you lose a set?

Anke Huber has done this a few times... another example would be the 1992 Oakland event:

R16 Larisa Neiland (LAT) W 1-6 6-0 6-0
