That means Steffi won at least 24 games in a row!

(Don't know about her French semi vs. Gaby 6-3 7-6, and her R64 match at Wimbledon Karine Quentrec 6-2 6-0, but tie-break can count as a game so at least 25 games in a row! Anyone know the conclusion of those 2 matches, that must be a record for the most games winning in the Open-era.)

Does anyone remember the 4th Round of the 1998 Australian Open, where there were a bunch of double bagels? Hingis, Davenport, Pierce?

Jo said she spent the whole match thinking about how to hit her forehand and proceeded to lose 6-0 6-0.

Complete list of doubles bagels by Hana Mandlikova:


1980 Las Vegas (Hardcourt) R32 d. Caroline Stoll
1981 Wimbledon (Grass) QF d. Wendy Turnbull
1987 Brisbane (Grass) R32 d. Marie-Christine Calleja
1987 Australian Open (Grass) QF d. Lori McNeil
1987 French Open (Clay) 1R d. Mima Jausovec
1990 Hopman Cup (Hardcourt) d. Sabrina Goles

Hana suffered the indignity of losing by that score to Kathy Jordan in the 1983 Detroit QF.

Dunno if Graf won the twelfth game in the second set of the Sabatini match or the first game of the Quentrec match, so I have no idea how many consecutive games Graf did win. I do remember reading somewhere (many years ago) that Navratilova once won five consecutive 6-0 sets, so she might hold the record. I'm not too sure if I'm remembering correctly, though, so maybe someone who has Navratilova's numbers might be able to correct me if I'm wrong.

Post stabbing "injured" Monica Seles lost 0-6,0-6 to a PRIME Martina Hingis. I don't think ANYBODY could have doubled bageled Seles before the stabbing.

A very young (14 or 15?) Martina Hingis lost 0-6, 0-6 to a PRIME Mary Pierce who was ranked #3 at that time.

Don't know what the modern record is for most consective games won-but the all-time record surely belongs to suzanne lenglen-who won some 5 or so events in her time without dropping a game-meaning 60 games to none!
