Stat question on bagels

How many times triple bagels occured at slams in the open era?

Were there any instances of quadruple or quintuple bagels? (where the final score is obviously 3-1 or 3-2)

It has never happened in 40 years.

Re: Stat question on bagels

I remember that Bruguera scoreline. Definitely not a cincidence that 3 of the 5 triple-bagels happened at Roland Garros, where the importance of the serve is diminished. Seen in that ligth, the Edberg triple bagel at Wimbledon looks very impressive - or perhaps his opponent just played the worst match of the century.

Re: Stat question on bagels

I was surprised to see Novacek do it.

Especially that Bengoechea was a quite good player in that time. He was No. 21 not long ago after this collapse.

I remember Champion losing that game, what an embarassement in front of his home crowd

There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

The whole match lasted 60 minutes (18 games), 47 minutes fewer than one set in the match Sela-Massu (12 games + TB)

Re: Stat question on bagels

Lee won first game and lost 18 in a row. Also Hewitt was very close to take "triple bagels" - he was leading against Corretja (!) 6-0 6-0 4:0 in Melbourne.

Re: Stat question on bagels

If I'm not wrong, Andy Murray was 6-0 6-0 5-0 at last year's Australian Open and then Alberto Martín won his first game to lose 6-0 6-0 6-1. He was even closer than Hewitt against Corretja.

Bengochea could only hit backhands that day and couldn't serve cause of a problem in his arm.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Stat question on bagels

Agassi beat Lee 6-1 6-0 6-0 (I think) at the Australian Open a few years back...

It was unbelievable, Bruguera wasn't doing anything special, it really was just a pathetic display from Champion.
There's a video with live commentary here ("il aimerait disparaître tellement il joue mal"):

The URL doesn't seem to work anymore :-/ - it's in the category "Tournoi de Roland Garros : images insolites, ambiance, bêtisier"

What about players bagelling each other in the course of the match, like Tipsarevic and Sirianni this year in AO?
