Bagel Tennis

In tennis, a bagel is when the set ends with a score of 6-0.[1] An extremely rare type of bagel, where no point is lost, is called a golden set. Most bagel sets occur in the early rounds of tennis tournaments where the favorites meet with lower ranked players such as a lucky loser or a wild card.

Surface disparity

Statistics of the men's singles Grand Slam tournaments from 2000 to 2016 are as follows: at Wimbledon (grass surface), 127 bagels were made; at French Open (clay surface), 267; at the US Open Tennis Championship (hard surface), 275, and at the Australian Open (hard surface), 238.[]. Björn Borg (five-time Wimbledon champion and six-time French Open champion) recorded 20 6-0 sets at the French Open, and only 5 at Wimbledon.

Double bagel

Men's singles

Grand Slam matches in the men's singles category are best of five sets. Thus, a kind of "inner double bagel" is possible, when a tennis player wins two consecutive 6-0 sets in a single match. The most recent occurrence is in 2018 when Gaël Monfils defeated Facundo Bagnis 7-6(7-4), 3-6, 6-0, 6-0.[2]

In the 1970s, first round matches at the French Open and US Open were only best of three sets. There are 3 cases of a double bagel Grand Slam victory:[]

Women's singles

For women in Grand Slam tournaments, a double bagel result is possible as the matches are best of three sets. In the Open Era, not a single Grand Slam tournament match ended with a double bagel in 1968 and 2005.[] The most double bagels were in the seasons of 1974 and 1993, when eight matches had a result of 6-0, 6-0.[]

The following players had at least five double-bagels in Grand Slam singles events: Suzanne Lenglen (France), Margaret Court (Australia) - 14; Chris Evert (United States) - 13; Helen Wills Moody (USA) - 10; Steffi Graf (Germany) - 7; Kim Clijsters (Belgium), Mary Pierce (France) - 6 each; Monica Seles (Yugoslavia / USA), Maria Sharapova (Russia) - on 5.[]

Between No. 1 ranked players

There are seven cases when double-bagels ended with matches played by two tennis players who at different times were ranked No. 1 in the ATP and WTA:[]

Triple bagel

The triple bagel is very infrequent. In the Open Era, this has occurred five times in the men's singles Grand Slam tournaments so far:

In total, taking into account the preliminary rounds of Davis Cup in the Open Era, there have been 17 triple-bagels.[7]
