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.
81-6 (She was hungry in 81 )
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.
