Still wondering why

Here are all of the doubles bagels won by Sabatini. It's interesting to note there are some well-known players who lost to the divine Argentine by that score, including Aranxta and Zina as I said before, and how she managed to win like that from her very first year on the Tour at 15 to her last season in 1996. Anyone has a list of the top double bagel winners?

1985

SUNTORY JAPAN - R16: KINNEY, KRISTIN (followed by a 6-0 6-1 win over Andrea Holikova)
1987

1988
HILTON HEAD - SF: GARRISON JACKSON, ZINA (RANKED 11)
1989
AUSTRALIAN OPEN - R32: BENJAMIN, CAMILLE (RANKED 88)
MIAMI - R64: SUIRE, CATHERINE (RANKED 145)

1991

CITIZEN CUP, Hamburg - R32: CECCHINI, SANDRA (RANKED 40)
FRENCH OPEN - R128: FARINA ELIA, SILVIA (RANKED 98), followed by a 60 61 win over Sandra Cecchini (ranked 36)
SAN DIEGO - R16: PO, KIMBERLY (RANKED 65)
1993
HILTON HEAD - R32: BOWES-HACKNEY, BEVERLY (RANKED 139)

Re: Digesting the big, dreaded double bagel

A few more notes about double bagels, and consecutive games won:

At the US Open, Chris Evert won the last 9 games of her 2R match at the 1976 US Open, then won 6-0,6-0 in 3R, followed by winning the first 2 games against Sue Barker in the 4R. So that's 23 in a row.
Also in 1985 at Brighton, Catarina Lindqvist won her first two matches 6-0,6-0 over Susan Mascarin and Barbara Gerken. She played Chris Evert in the QF, losing the first set 6-2. Although I was at the match, I don't have any recall, but believe Chris started out winning first game, but had to go on and win a tough 7-6 in the third match.

Evert was amazing in how she was able to beat quality players 6-0,6-0; top 10ers like Betty Stove, Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin. Also saw the 1985 Tokyo result over Bonder. Pure payback by Miss Evert for the shock defeat to Bonder in 1983 Tokyo.

Re: Digesting the big, dreaded double bagel

Billie Jean King's double bagel singles wins (15):

Randy Rayburn, Pacific Southwest Championships, 1963 (hard)
Louise Gonnerman, U.S. Indoor Championships, 1966 (indoor)
Elizabeth Blackford, Eastern Grass Court Championships, 1966 (grass)
Karal Gagliano, New England Women's Invitational Indoor Tennis Championships, 1967 (indoor)
Julie Holt, Charlotte Invitation Tennis Tournament, 1967 (clay)
Mary Larreco, Pacific Southwest Championships, 1967 (hard)
Jade Shiffman, U.S. Indoor Championships, 1968 (indoor artificial grass)
Melanie Muller, South African Open, 1969 (hard)
Shirley Houlihan, Irish Open, 1969 (grass)
Odile De Roubin, French Open, 1970 (clay)
Ann Haydon Jones, British Motor Car Invitational, San Francisco, 1971 (indoor)
Pam Austin, Jacksonville, Florida, 1972 (clay)
Julie Heldman, Quincy, Massachusetts, 1973 (indoor)
Ingrid Bentzer, Orlando, Florida, 1974 (clay)
Frederique Thibault, Federation Cup, Eastbourne, United Kingdom, 1977 (grass)

King never lost a singles match 6-0, 6-0. But Chris Evert allowed King only 1 game on three occasions (two on clay and one on hard courts) and 2 games on three other occasions (two indoors and one on clay). Six of King's nine worst singles losses (in terms of games won by King) were to Evert.

While looking at some of the old threads a few days ago, I came across this one. Did anyone ever find out what the Open Era record for most consecutive games won was? For Graf, I found out later that her streak was 26 consecutive games (counting a tie-breaker as a game) - the last "game" of the 1988 French semis against Sabatini, the 6-0 6-0 against Zvereva in the final, the 6-0 6-0 against Hu Na in the first round at Wimbledon 1988, and the first game against Karine Quentrec in the second round.

Maria Sharapova has now won 28 consecutive games at the Australian Open this year (6-0, 6-0 in her first two matches and the first four games against Venus Williams today). Were there any others with a streak longer than 28?

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Depends on when Guse won her game in the second set against Graf in the first round of the 1989 AO. Graf blanked Simpson in the second round and won the first 11 games versus Werdel in the third. Can't find much pertaining to the second set versus Guse, but by my reckoning, Guse served first in the second. If she held there and Graf ran out the rest of the set, that would do it.

Also just from looking at the list above, Evert had double bagels twice in 1973 in Atlantic City and Indianapolis, and 1974 Indianapolis. I am too lazy to look up whether these were consecutive matches and/or what the surrounding matches' scores were, but those are also candidates.

Re: Digesting the big, dreaded double bagel

And in pre-open era days Suzanne Lenglen often went on tears where she won whole events without the loss of a game.

That's 60 games in a row!


Does anyone else besides me think some players or types of style tend towards more bagels?

I always thought that a controlled baseline game, one based on consistency, often produces lopsided game scores. Someone who serves and volleys often needs to find their "range". IMO it's easier to make an error or two when playing forcing tennis.

To me this explains why someone like Chris Evert is more likely to have double bagels than a Margaret Court or Martina Navratilova.

Martina Hingis often double b'd lesser opponents in a way Serena never could or will because Serena often needs to settle in. I attribute that to Hingis' style of play.
