This thread name is quite expressive, it must be dreadful to lose by that score.
I'll post Sabatini's double-bagels later, I'll just add that she beat once kimberly Po, if I recall correct, 66 60, and the following match she was leading he 5-0 before poor Kim could win a game! Three sets and just a game against the same rival! She must have wanted to kill herself

Graf fans always annoy me when they mention that Seles almost was double-bageled by Graf (0-6 1-6) less than one year before Monica's first slam win (suggesting Monica being near peak). Don't they know that Monica's results before March 1990 and post-stabbing DON'T COUNT?

So, for all dumb Grafans to remember: ONLY Seles results from April 1990 until April 1993 (= stabbing) count. And don't say Seles had a 15 year long career!!!

I remember Monica had something similar against Sarah(?!) Pitowski. She beat her 6-0 6-0, and then in wimbledon beat her in wimby 6-0 6-3

Gaby won 24 consecutive games against Silvia Farina 91 Toronto R32 then 92 French Open R128, (2 years later at the very same place she suffered that painful loss against the Italian.)

One of the most inexplicable double bagels I've ever heard of was in the 1960 Wightman Cup. Matches were one-all, when doubles great Darlene Hard paired with junior champ Karen Hantze to defeat Wimbledon Champ Angela Mortimer and top player Ann Haydon (Jones). The final was 60 60. As important as the Wightman Cup was, how could two great players allow themselves to be shut out? As good as Hard and Hantze were, there is no way that 60 60 should have been the final score.

You would think that the defeat would've taken the air out of the Brits. Mortimer won a later singles match, Christine Truman won singles and doubles with Brasher. Added in with Haydon's opening win over Hantze and the Brits won 4-3. Strange, though.

Supersteffi...

Are you referring to a 15 year old rookie Seles on her 1st year as a professional on the women's tour? No, I was not going to stoop to your level and bring in matches when Graf was 15 years of age like you are trying to do with Seles.

How many titles did Steffi Graf win in her 1st three years as a professional? ZERO = BAGEL.

Btw, Sanchez Vicario almost double bageled an in-form PRIME Graf at the 1991 French Open Semifinals 6-0 6-2.

So tell me JM, what does "Suel avec tous" mean when used in a tennis context? I'm guessing from the translation it is something like "alone with your thoughts", but there is a nice Roland Garros poster at my local club with this phrase underneath a player with his head in his hands, and I always wondered exactly what it meant.

Litterally it means 'alone with all': 'seul' is alone and it probably means that, as a tennis player, you're alone on the court when facing your opponent, devising strategy etc. 'tous' can be translated as 'all' or 'everybody' or 'altogether ', depending on the context. It may imply that tennis players are part of this big brotherhood as members of the French or International Federation, even though they are alone on the tennis court

In French 'double bagels' are translated as 'double wheels' (of bicycle), so after the ladies sf of the French 84, the magazine 'Tennis de France' reported that 'Camille Benjamin entra sur le court central pour affronter Chris Evert et s'en repartit à bicyclette aprés 39 minutes...' Camille Benjamin came on central court to play Chris Evert and left on her bike after only 39 mns....

How witty!

Not witty if you heard it from someone else and keep re-using it ad nauseam like John Barrett's non-existing angles......

Witty if it is your own creation.....like Bud's pants or is this just bad taste?
