Just a quick check of Tennis corner came up with these 6-0 6-0s

in slams

74 Aussie Szeman
76 Wimby Coe
76 US Coles
77 US Whytcross
79 US Riedel
80 Paris Fyanch
80 US Sands
81 Wimby Pasquale
82 Paris Forood
86 US Marsikova

That's 10 Double-bagels in grand slams

Evert had a bagel every year she played after 1976 except for 1983 and her last year on tour, 1989-and she came darn close to one then. She probably had bagels in all her years before 76 too, but tenniscorner records for then are poor.

Number of double bagles by year.

By year

74-1
76-2
77-3
78-1
79-2
80-3
81-6 (She was hungry in 81 )
82-4
83-None
84-3
85-2
86-2
87-2
88-1
89-none

That's AT LEAST 32 6-0 6-0 matches. It takes consistency to win 6-0 6-0, and Chrissie had it in spades. Bow down to the Queen of the double bagel!

P.S. Before I forget-Chrissie may be the ONLY open era #1 to double bagel TWO other women who reached #1 . Evert got martina love and love at Amelia in 81 and Austin 6-0 6-0 at the Toyota master in 82.

Hi, in fact there were 5 DB in 74: K Szeman at the Australian Open, Halle Sparre-Viragh first round of Indianapolis, Gail Chanfreau Indianapolis final, Laurie Tenney (Toronto QFl, ) K. Pigeon (1st r Denver)

8 in 73: Brinker, Kyomura, Tuero (twice), Tenney, Bostrom, Krantzcke,
Rossow

1 in 72: Kaligis
